How to Pick a Good House Painting Contractor If you’re in search of a painting contractor to give your home’s exterior a facelift, you have some things to consider. Besides, these pros are not all created equal, so you have to know how to assess them and choose wisely. Start with two or three prospective contractors. Call in these contractors and make sure you’re home when they come for your initial meeting. You need to be there so you can see how long it took them to check things out. The longer, the better.

The quality and price of the job isn’t only affected by how many coats will be applied. Preparation is crucial as well. For instance, if you’re looking for totally smooth and even results – that is, free from any remnants of previous paint jobs – make it known to the contractors, and don’t be surprised if they charge you extra for it. 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. Talk to references and look at previous jobs. If you get good feedback from the contractors’ past clients, that’s obviously a good sign. Don’t just leave it all to words though. Politely ask them if you could personally come and see the contractors’ work. The older the projects, the better – you want to see how they’re holding up. Consider the credentials of your prospects. While membership in an industry association or local business group doesn’t guarantee good work, it shows that the contractor is committed and reliable. Also verify if the contractor has the right licenses (your state’s Contractor’s License Reference website) or any unresolved consumer complaints (Better Business Bureau and your state’s attorney-general’s office). Don’t proceed without a written and complete contract. 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 have to pay for the project in full until you are completely satisfied with the result. You may have to make a down payment of 10-15%. Make it a point to get a copy of the pro’s liability and workers’ compensation insurance certificates. Needless to say, never deal with an uninsured contractor. Get a guarantee. The contractor should give you a guarantee against peeling, flaking , blistering or any other quality issues within the first two years. Lastly, keep in mind that paint warranty and labor warranty are separate.
