A Few Tips From Former Painters
With so many options out there, it can be difficult to find the right painting contractor to get your next project done. We’re here to give you some of the best tips that we have encountered during our twenty-year career in the painting industry. Oh, boy, we’re getting old!
There’s no better way to help out everyone out there than to give back the knowledge that we gained over those years. We love helping people out in the decision and selection process, because it can save them money, time and prevent people from making huge mistakes.
Meet the Contractor in Person
This is so important because you will be able to get a feel for their character and professionalism. Ask them questions when you meet them in person. You can ask things like:
- Who will be painting my property?
- How many crew members will be here?
- What is your policy on professionalism?
- Can I see your previous painting jobs?
You may need to paint your house or paint your business. If you are looking to freshen up your business, you’ll need to find reputable companies, such as the Commercial Painting Fanatics. This company has been building relationships with painters from all across the United States. They pre-qualify their sales teams and quality of painting. All you have to do is call their number or fill out their form. Then, they link you up with the best commercial painters in your city or town.
The last thing you want to happen is a bunch of rough-edged painters using inappropriate language, being loud and doing a bad job – making your home or office in need of another paint job. Trust your gut on this one, so you aren’t paying for this mistake later down the road.
Take Good Notes
When you meet with the painting contractor, be sure to jot some specific notes down, so you don’t forget later on what you both discussed. There are going to be detailed duties that the contractor should be discussing. These include:
- Preparation and cleanup
- Color of paint that needs to be used and where it needs to be used
- Dates, times when to start and when it will end
- Any type of warranty
- Price / quote
- Find Reputable Sources
Do not trust everything you hear online or in the newspapers. Why? Well, because sadly in today’s age there are a lot of hoopla going around with pretty much every business.
Be sure to look online at reputable sources such as Facebook, Yelp, and the Yellow Pages. Google is another very trusted source when it comes to customer reviews, as they are extremely strict on user intent.
When you do find a reputable source, be sure to ask the questions you need to make sure this will be a good fit for your home or business. Re-painting your house or your commercial space can really give it a valuable upgrade for many reasons. This is your chance to get a good company to help paint your property. Good luck and be sure to email us if you have any questions.
