The first step to a successful painting project is choosing a reliable house painter to complete the job. When doing research on local painters, consider these four things before hiring a painting company:

4 Things to Consider Before Hiring a Painting Company

Does the painter have years of relevant experience? Choosing a painting company who has completed projects similar to yours will ensure they have the knowledge and understanding of your project type. Select a local painter with experience in residential homes, rather than a painting company who works
strictly on commercial office buildings. The painter should be able to recommend materials and techniques that work best for your project type.

Formal Estimate
Does the contractor provide a formal estimate? Meeting with the painting contractor in person will ensure that they have a full understanding of your home and the project at hand. The contractor should provide a written estimate and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Are you hiring a professional painting company? Though hiring a professional painter may not be the cheapest option, it is the best option and will save you a lot of time and effort. The painting crew should arrive in uniform and on time to prepare the project effectively. Once the job is complete, a full cleanup should be performed.

Online Reviews
Does the house painter have a reputable online reputation? Online reviews are like today’s reference list. It allows you to get an understanding of how the painting company works and what you can expect from your experience with them. Read through the reviews on various sites like, Google, Yelp and Facebook. Choose a local painting company with over 4-stars.
