5 Tips for Hiring a Professional Paint Contractor

Painting the inside or outside of your home can be a time consuming and messy task that is best left to a professional. When it comes to hiring a professional painting contractor, there are some specific traits you should look for.

Tip #1: Always Choose a Licensed and Bonded Contractor

When working with any contractor, you want to make sure you are working with someone who is licensed, bonded, and insured. A painting contractor who is licensed, bonded, and insured takes their work seriously and is committed to being held responsible for their work.

Tip #2: Choose a Contractor Who Belongs to a Painter's Association

Next, you want to work with a painter who is part of either a national or local painting contractor's association. A contractor who belongs to a painter's association is showing that they are committed to the work they are doing. They are aware of the most recent advances in the painting industry, and they know how to adhere to the best practices. Someone who belongs to a painter's association is also committed to high ethical standards with their work.

Tip #3: Get a Written Guarantee

Painting a home may seem like a simple task, but you want to make sure that you get a written guarantee for the work you want to have done. The job contract should include things such as the type of paint that will be used, how many coats of paint will be applied, what the quality of the job will be, and how long the job will take. You want the contract for the job to be detailed.

Tip #4: Look for Quotes Within the Same Price Range

When you examine the quotes you get for a paint job; you need to make sure the paints are within the same range of each other. A bid significantly lower than all the others may mean that contractor is cutting corners. You want to make sure the big is within the range of the other bids you get.

Tip #5: Examine the Paint Quality

Finally, you need to examine the quality of the paint that is being used. You want to use paint that is right for where it is being applied. You also need to make sure that at least two coats are applied to the wall, which is considered an industry standard for a quality paint job. 

When it comes to hiring a professional paint contractor, you will want to work with a licensed, bonded, and insured contractor who offers a fair quote and has good recommendations.
