What To Consider When Choosing A Painting Company. We encourage people to get estimates from multiple painting companies as you would for any work being done to your home. Make sure to ask questions and read your estimate carefully to see exactly what you are getting. Always make sure your contracor is fully licensed and insured with WCB coverage. If they are not, they cannot gaurantee their work.
Beware of companies that use subcontractors. Unless you are hiring a general contractor for a remodel or a new build, hiring a painting company that employs the use of subcontractors is very risky. Make sure that if you hire a painting contractor, they use their own employees. Remember if your contractor isn't set up as a legitimate business, and has no liability insurance, if anything goes wrong, you will be liable.
Always get references. Reputable contractors will be happy to provide names and contact information of satisfied clients. If at all possible, try and get in to see a contractors actual work.
Check the Better Business Bureau for filed complaints.
Always get everything in writing. A written contract will specify what will be done to complete the job, associated costs, and the payment schedule. Warranty. Find out what type of warranty the contractor offers. A reputable contractor will warranty their work for a minimum of 3 years. Make sure the warranty is in writing.
