Important Questions to Ask Your Prospective Home Painter

The success of your interior or exterior painting project depends on the expertise of the contractor you hired. Thus, doing your due diligence is imperative when it comes to choosing the team you’ll be working with throughout the project. A crucial part of this process involves asking the right questions. Read on as we highlight them below. 

“Are you licensed and insured?” Make sure you ask your prospective home painting contractors about these important credentials. If they have a license, it means that they have met standards set by the city, county or state government when it comes to operating a business. The prospect should also carry insurance. With this, you can be sure that you are protected from being held liable for anything that may happen while the painting job is underway. These include property damage, accidental injury and non-payment of wages.

“Can I get a list of references?” It doesn’t matter if you are tackling roof repair or planning to repaint your home exterior. When it comes to home improvement, you must first learn what the prospective contractors’ previous customers have to say about them. By asking for a list of references, you can get a clear picture of how the pros deliver top-notch workmanship. Give each one of them a call and ask these questions:

  • Were you satisfied with the paint job?

  • Was the team courteous and professional throughout the project?

  • Would you recommend them?

“Do You Offer Other Services?” It is a luxury to work with a painting company that also specializes in other home improvement projects. Siding replacement, for instance, often goes hand-in-hand with exterior painting. With these two services available, you can rest assured that your home performs well under harsh weather conditions while maintaining its curb appeal.
