5 must-ask questions when hiring a painting contractor for your Atlanta, GA home

Jan 31st, 2016

 

When hiring an Atlanta, GA home painting contractor to do interior or exterior work on your residence, you want someone you can trust to do quality work at affordable pricing. You also want to choose someone who will take care while in your home as if it were their own.

But how do you know which is best?

Ask and compare 5 key questions before deciding which home painting contractor to hire.

1. How long have you been in the painting business?

Longevity is the first indicator of reliability in the painting business. An established local history of at least 5 years indicates time-honed expertise and follow through.

2. What product lines do you use?

The quality of paint a contractor uses speaks to the final quality of their work. Reputable painters use high-quality products from well-known brands such as Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore.

3. Do you perform work yourself or use subcontractors?

Shy away from a company who uses painting subcontractors. While subcontracted laborers may come cheap – they’re often inexperienced, unprofessional and unlicensed.

4. Do you have any references or awards?

A high-quality painter will have references you can contact to discuss their customer experiences, as well as a picture portfolio of past work. Local or online awards can also bolster their legitimacy.

5. What kind of guarantees do you hold your work to?

Lastly, determine what protection you’ll have once a paint job is complete. Dependable contractors should offer a warranty – in writing – covering both labor and materials.
