So, why not take time to hire a professional painting team to address one of the most important elements of the home’s appearance! After all, just because anyone can use a paintbrush doesn’t everyone should take the DIY approach to painting- especially something as important as the home’s exterior. For a job of this nature, you really should hire a professional painting company so you can know you will get the best just possible.
Of course, just because you contact a team that claims to be professional it doesn’t mean they are. It is vital that you do your due diligence and check out the crew before you sign a contract. Here are a few tips to consider when planning to hire a painting company:
- As you meet with the painters, be sure to be clear and specific about what you need painted, any expectations, and when you need the work started and completed by.
- Learn what their process is for a job. Do the scrape off old paint first, prepare the surface, prime, etc. Each of these are Must Do actions and a knowledgeable, professional team will do this because they know that is how you get the best results. Yes, it means more time invested but skipping these steps is not wise!
- Will they be protecting elements not painted? If there areas of the house’s structure you don’t want painted, find out what they will do to prevent this from occurring.
- Be sure to find out if they have any local places they have painted, then to follow up on checking those places out. Be wary if they don’t have any local recommendations or if you are unable to talk to the people for who they have worked.
- Find out about the quality of the paint they will be using. If you are unfamiliar with the brand, talk to others in the industry or even sales assistants at your local home store.
- Don’t sign anything until you are secure in your knowledge of the crew and that they will meet all the requirements you may have for the job.
