How To Select Painting Contractor

Selecting a painting contractor can be excruciating difficult. For one, how do you know they’re qualified to help assist you with deciding what colour you want to paint your house? And then there’s the worry that they won’t show up, or worse, they ruin your walls. Here’s a few ideas to help you:

  1. Make sure your painter offers a wide range of paint colours you can choose from. Ideally, they should be able to create any colour your heart is set on.
  2. Make sure they go over with you exactly how they are going to prepare your home or office for the job you have hired them to do.
  3. A final walk through is essential. If your company doesn’t offer one, ask them to hold one for you. Make sure everything has been completed.

Your time is valuable. Why not hire a professional painter for your next project?

Using a professional painting contractor takes the stress out of painting your home. But finding the right one is an important decision that requires careful consideration.

Painting Contractor Hiring Tips

Ask Around

The best way to find quality painting contractors is to get referrals from friends, neighbors, and acquaintances who have had good experiences with painting contractors in your area. You can also get referrals from your local Benjamin Moore paint store.

Get Estimates from at Least Three Contractors

When you receive contractor estimates, they should fall roughly within the same price range. If estimates differ widely from one another, ask what is not being done or
where corners are being cut.

Interview Each Candidate

Always ask contractors the following questions:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Do you have the proper/required licenses? (This varies by province, and some provinces may not require licensing.)
  • Do you have insurance and bonding? (This helps determine whether your contractor and any hired workers are insured for injury and liability.)
  • Are you a member of any national or local painting contractors’ associations?
  • Do you subcontract your work or perform it yourself?
  • Can you provide references?
  • Do you offer written guarantees of your work?
  • What products do you use?

 

Be Specific About the Project

It’s a good idea to walk each potential paint contractor around the areas (indoor or outdoor) to be painted while discussing your needs, and particularly any aspects of the project that could affect the price. Be specific about which surfaces you want to have painted (walls, trims, moldings, ceilings, etc.) and the paint colours and stain finishes you want used.

Pay Attention to Behavior

As you meet with each painter, pay attention to the following signs and behaviors:

  • Does the contractor project a sense of professionalism and experience?
  • Is the contractor courteous and business-like?
  • Is the contractor busy? (Good ones usually are.)
  • Does the contractor return phone calls and provide estimates in a timely manner?
  • Is the contractor on time for appointments?

Check References

Be sure to get at least three references from past customers and speak to them directly. If possible, visit references to evaluate the painter’s work in person and to see how well it has held up over time.

Review the Contract

Once you’ve settled on a painter, ask for a written contract and review it carefully. As a consumer, you have the right to ask detailed questions about any issues you need clarified. In particular, be sure to verify the following:

  • What exactly is being painted (house, trim, walls, molding, etc.)
  • Details on preparation and cleanup
  • Paint colours for each area to be painted
  • How the contractor will protect plants, patios, furniture, or other items
  • How much time the project will take, from start to finish
  • When and how the contractor will be paid

Once you complete these steps, you’ll be ready to hire the right painting contractor—and enjoy your newly painted home.

Tips: Choosing the right painting contractor

Ask Around

The best way to find a quality painting contractor is to get referrals from friends, your local paint store, and neighbours/acquaintances. People you trust will be able to share good and not so good experiences

Get Multiple Estimates

Each estimate should be very similar in price and guaranteed work. If the estimates differ greatly, ask what is not being completed. Make sure you understand exactly what is being quoted.

Check References

Make sure to get at least three references from past customers and speak to them directly. Also, ask the painting contractors if they have pictures of their previous work which they can show you.

Sign an Agreement

Be sure to have everything in writing. How many coats of paint on each wall, what colours and products are going to be used. Details on preparation and cleanup. How long will the project take, from start to finish. When and how the painting contractor will be paid.
