Tips to Finding the Best Painting Contractor for Your Home
When you're looking to hire a residential painting company to paint your home, there are some important considerations to be aware of. First of all, there is a big difference between painters who do residential painting versus those companies who cater primarily to commercial accounts.
House painting for residential customers, whether exterior or interior, requires a lot of care and sensitivity to the personal tastes of the homeowner. Their home is perhaps the greatest investment they have. A painting professional understands that their clients want to know if there is a moisture or ventilation problems, or if there's a better solution that will improve the look of their house. Many homeowners can do their own painting, but for the convenience, efficiency, and affordability they choose to hire a professional painting company.
For a short period of time a residential painter will be interrupting our life. It's important to hire a company that makes every effort to work carefully around obstacles and accommodates different schedules. Is the painter or painting company you are going to hire for your exterior home painting project aware that you have neighbors? Do the painters wear uniformed shirts? You might also want to ask if their employees are allowed to play loud music or swear in your home or yard. Remember, the painting contractors you hire are a reflection on your good judgment; or lack thereof!
When hiring residential painters, you should know that every residential painting project is different. Homeowners always have a list of two or three things to get done. Some painting companies have experienced carpenters who can add in a closet, put in a door, replace trim and siding or any other little project you'd like to see done.
Quality is so important when choosing a painting contractor. There are a wide variety of paint quality and types of paint on the market today. Be sure to ask the company what brand of paint they will be using. Some brands of paint have better warrantees than others. Especially when painting interior walls and trim, the better quality paint results in better coverage with less coats.
Preparation work is critical when painting a home exterior. Sometimes residential painting companies skip over the prep work to save time, but all this means is that the paint job they are doing won't last long. Finally, be sure to ask for references. Your due-diligence will pay off with a beautiful paint job that looks great and lasts for years to come.
