Case Study: My Experience With Services

Choosing a Professional House Painter If you’re in search of a painting contractor to give your home’s exterior a facelift, you have some things to consider. After all, there can be huge differences among these pros, and you need to know just how to assess the so you can make a smart choice. Start with two or three prospective contractors. Give these contractors a call and have them visit you in your home. It’s important for you to be there so you know just how much time they spent checking things out. Longer is better in most cases.
Understanding Painters
Let them know your expectations.
Understanding Painters
The quality and price of the job isn’t only affected by how many coats will be applied. Preparation also has a big role to play. If you’re going for total smoothness and evenness of the surface, with zero traces of earlier paint jobs, tell the contractors but be prepared for additional charges. Ask for a written estimate from every contractor on your shortlist This should include every single detail that affects the outcome of the project, from labor to surface preparation requirements to primer and paint coats and the rest. Call references and take a look at past work. If you get good feedback about the contractors, that’s clearly a positive sign. Don’t just leave it all to words though. Ask them if they would allow you to come and take a look at the contractors’ work. It’s best to inspect projects that were done several years ago so you can see how the quality is holding up. Consider the credentials of your prospects. Membership in a business association may not guarantee quality work, but it shows that the contractor is reliable and committed to the industry. Also take time to check if they have the necessary licenses (visit your state’s Contactor’s License Reference website) and whether they have a history of unresolved complaints with the Better Business Bureau or with your attorney-general’s office. Have a written contract and make sure it’s complete. A complete contract is one that has the contractor’s business details, such as name, office address and phone numbers (cellphone and landline) and license number, plus everything in the written estimate. Most importantly, this document should explicitly state the project’s start and end dates, and what are and what are not included. You shouldn’t be made to pay in full until you are finally satisfied with the outcome. A 10-15% deposit may be required. Don’t forget to get a copy of the contractor’s insurance certificates (liability and workers’ compensation). Without a doubt, an uninsured contractor is way too dangerous. Demand a guarantee. You should get a guarantee for chipping, excessive fading, peeling or any other quality issues within a period of two years after completion of the project. Lastly, keep in mind that paint warranty and labor warranty are separate.
