If you’ve been looking for a professional house painter to tackle your interior and exterior projects, you should be on the lookout for a few key qualities. And, while you’ve undoubtedly seen signs around town for ‘cheap’ and ‘same-day’ painting, it pays to do a little research before making such an important decision. Your home is your oasis, it’s a sanctuary that deserves professional care and attention. You wouldn’t trust your vehicle to an amateur mechanic, right? So why trust your home to an amateur house painter? In today’s post, we’re going to take a close look at three qualities you’re definitely going to want your painting team to have.
An experienced, detail-oriented crew
Depending on the size of your project, your painter should come with a team. And, if they’re bringing a team, every member of that team should be experienced, focused, and professional. Before starting your project, ask your professional house painter how many people are on their team, how many years of experience they have, and what each member brings to the table.
A thorough written estimate
As they say, verbal agreements aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. A true professional will always provide you with a written estimate. This estimate should break down the cost of materials and labor. It should also outline the project’s major milestones, including when the surfaces will be prepped, when primer will be applied, and when the final coat will be completed.
A commitment to safety
If something happens during your project, you don’t want to be on the hook for damages. Always ask your residential painting team for proof of insurance and workers’ compensation. You’re hiring a professional to provide you with peace of mind. You shouldn’t have to worry or carry concerns about worst case scenarios.
