Why would you hire a professional?

Before you decide to hire the least expensive painter you can find, or “do it yourself”, here are important points to consider that suggest the lowest price may not be the best value.

Safety

Painting can be hazardous work, whether it’s working on a ladder or dealing with solvents and dust. Hiring a professional contractor means you don’t have to worry about these problems.

Health

If your home or business was built before 1978, it may have been painted with lead-based paint, which can cause serious health effects when it is scraped or sanded in preparation for repainting. Professional contractors will take appropriate steps to protect you.

Preparation & Painting

Getting the surface properly prepared makes all the difference. Professional contractors know the value of preparation and will do it right.

Knowing Paints & How to Apply Them

The choices today are more complicated than just oil or latex, and professional contractors will know what works, how to use it, and will have the right tools for the job.

Cleanup & Disposal

Hiring a professional contractor means you don’t have to worry about dealing with paint residues and other leftovers. Professionals will know how to handle hazardous wastes that may be part of the job.

How to Choose the Right Contractor For Your Project?

How do you go about selecting the right company? Do you make your selection on price, size of company, years in business, or other criteria?

To locate the names of reputable contractors, there are many sources of information. Other professionals, and local “quality- oriented” paint supply stores. However, these sources can only give you limited and general information. In order to make an educated decision, you need some specific information about any person or firm you are considering hiring.

 

Written quotations are a Must!

Reputable contractors will always give you a written quotation. This should clearly explain the scope of the work to be performed. It should also cover such items as surfaces to be painted, methods and extent of surface preparation, time schedules for the project, and payment procedures.

Knowing the total scope of the work enables you to carefully evaluate the different bids you may receive with the proper information and keep them on a level playing field. The quotation serves to protect both you and the contractor.

 

Invest Time in Verifying References.

Obtain a list of references from the prospective contractor. This list should include the contact person, address, and telephone number of the previous client. Follow up on this list with a phone call. Remember, the contractor will not give you a bad reference. Therefore, ask references if they know of any other work this contractor has performed. Be sure to ask whether the contractor and employees treated you professionally and with respect. The references you are interested in should be projects similar in size and scope to yours.

Also, some of the projects should be at least a few years old. This will help you gauge the performance of the construction and materials used. If possible, try to see the work that was done.

Quality painting and decorating contractors are well-educated on the different aspects of any painting project and that knowledge helps eliminate surprises. Excellence in paint application is important with your selection of a contractor, as are the skills to properly manage their business and your project.
