What to Look for When Hiring a Painting Company

Hiring someone to paint the interior or exterior of your home can be a daunting task. The painting industry is vulnerable to anyone with a paintbrush as no formal training, or licensing is necessary. 

When looking for a professional home painter, there are a few things you should focus on to ensure you are getting top-notch service and results.

Finding Someone You Trust

There is nothing better than an old-fashioned word-of-mouth reference. Asking a trusted friend or general contractor for a recommendation is a wise place to start, followed by some online research and reviews of previous customers. It would be strange for a company not to have a review profile and should be considered a red flag. A reputable company will provide you with a portfolio of their past projects; this way, you can determine their experience level and quality of work.

Once you have narrowed your search to a shortlist, invite them over for an onsite bid and conversation. You can communicate your expectations, get a sense of their work ethic, and agree to a timeline for your project. While cost is something to consider when hiring a professional painting company, you should also keep in mind some line items are worth paying more for, such as quality of products and attention to detail such as prep and cleanup of the project. Some companies even guarantee their work; this is always a good sign they take pride in their services and stand by their work.

Hiring Someone Who Understands Your Vision

Whether you have a crisp vision for your project or a vague idea for something new, the wisdom of a professional painting company always comes in handy. Experts will make recommendations specific to your project and point out issues you may have overlooked. Professionals can detail a plan for specific issues like lead, bubbling, or cracking paint. Look for a company with a good understanding of the industry. They should be educated in current trends, hues that work well together, and ways to accomplish the overall look you are trying to achieve. Some experts may even specialize in new and modern homes or older, more historic ones. 

Choosing Someone Who Can be Flexible with You

It’s not always easy to compare quotes from different companies. Some companies pay their crews less, use cheaper products, don’t do as much prep, or may not fix any issues that could take away from the integrity of their work. It’s essential to secure a company that works with you and helps you determine what you can and cannot leave out of your budget. Being upfront about a timeline and sticking to it is another way a trusted painter will accommodate your project. They should constantly communicate their progress, setbacks, and daily start and end times to be flexible to you and your projects schedule.

“I can’t say enough great things about Chad and his crew. They were punctual throughout the entire project and very attentive to detail. This is the first time I’ve hired a painter and they far exceeded my expectations.”

We used Chad for an insurance claim to repaint our house after we received hail damage. Our house had been painted just 2 years prior when we purchased it and moved in but the quality of the previous painter was sub par at with another opportunity to have our house painted, I wanted to ensure that it was done right. Chad and his crew delivered just that and completely blew my expectations out of the water. To say that they did an incredible job isn't saying enough, the quality that we received was as if Chad was painting his own home. No exterior surface was left untouched and they used high grade products to do the job right. The communication was incredible and if available, he always answered or called me right back after leaving a message. He was fast acting on the paperwork I needed to complete my insurance claim and even personally delivered the signed documents that I required. He walked me through all the steps of his painting process and even gave me confidence that I was going with the right company before the work even started. I was blown away with the finished product and before calling the job complete, we walked around my entire home, with him encouraging me to point out any imperfections that I saw so that his crew could address them on the spot ensuring that I was pleased....but needless to say, I found NONE! Chad will be my first an only call for any future painting projects and he should be yours too!
