Because it is an important part of home ownership to protect your home investment, it’s time to let your home have a paint job, especially when it’s more than 5 years old, knowing that 5 years is just enough period for the surfaces of interior and, especially, the exterior of the house be given a fresh paint outlook.
If you’re satisfied with how your house was painted by the paint contractor or subcontractor, when it was newly-built, then you don’t have a problem of calling them up again to do a repainting job; however, if you’re not that satisfied and you want a fresh approach to repaint your house, consider these steps in looking for a residential painting company.
Find a good paint contractor through the grapevine, who are your friends, family members, neighbors who have a satisfactory experience with a paint contractor; find a good one from paint stores, one who is highly recommended by the store; and through the Internet websites and read each site’s reviews on their services, all these approaches should help you easily narrow down your list of paint contractors.
Why Experts Aren’t As Bad As You Think
Before listing down your chosen paint contractors, it is important to note that it is better to have a paint contractor whose business is in your state, because it is difficult to recoup your investment if the contractor failed to meet the contract’s agreement or neglected a lot of his supposed services. As soon as you have narrowed down the list to paint contractors who are in your state, check from them on the following information: a contractor’s license, a certificate of insurance for their staff, member of a local or national association of paint contractors. Information from the Better Business Bureau reveals a company’s legitimate business and if there are valid complaints on the contractor’s company, which must be noted down in your list.
6 Facts About Experts Everyone Thinks Are True
At least have two or three contractors, when you have further narrowed down your list after a process of elimination, and invite each one on separate schedules to your home and let him inspect the areas, surfaces, and fixtures that you want to be repainted and inquire on the following: the kind of paint that will be used, the number of coatings, personal protection equipment available for staff, payment proposal, a company’s brochure on their services to their customers complete with photos.
As soon as you have finally chosen a paint contractor who you believe will be effective to do the repainting job, both you and the contractor must draw up a contract, reflecting on the following: details on paint preparation and clean up; areas to be painted and your preferred colors; period of the painting job in which the specific dates must be reflected; applicable warranty; price quotation of the repainting job.
