What Questions Should You Be Asking When Hiring A Painting Company?

Unfortunately, not every painting company is as reputable as the next. It is extremely important to know what questions to ask when hiring a painting contractor so there are no issues throughout your projects process.

One of the most important things to know before hiring a painting contractor is whether or not the company is insured, this protects you from liability if any accident was to occur on the job. Insurance also protects you if any damage is done to your home by the contractors.

If you hire a company for your painting project, you would just expect them to use their employees, correct? Some companies will sub contract out the jobs they get because they can pay the sub-contractor a lower fee. This also means that they are not insured by that company.

Ask what type of products they use, you may think that because they are professionals they use the best materials out there. This is not always true, some painters cut corners to cut cost so their profits are higher, which ties into warranty. If your painting contractor offers a warranty make sure you know how long it will last and everything that it will be covered under it.

See the company’s portfolio! This will show you the quality of work they provide. Just make sure they aren’t using stock photos that don’t belong to them, normally these photos will have the employees on the job in them.

Finally, be sure to get a written copy of the estimate and amount of time the job should take. There can always been unforeseen issues with anything, such as a weather issue for an outdoor job. Having the information on paper should help with any possible conflicts.
