Things To Consider When Hiring Painters

Painting is always a big job around any home and as a result the majority of homeowners elect to hire professionals for both interior and exterior painting. To ensure that you get the high quality job that you expect there are a few pointers that will ensure that you get the best painters in Oak Park.

   * Meet the painters: Perhaps the best reference sources are people you know, perhaps your neighbor, people you work with or family. Call at least three painting companies that come highly recommended. Arrange to have them visit you at home, let them assess the job. Pay attention to how much time they take to make this assessment, usually the longer time they take the more realistic the estimate will be. Ask each of the candidate companies how many painters they will use to do the work.

   * State your expectations: The price of the job includes more than just the paint; the key to an excellent job is the initial preparation. Don’t be afraid to tell the contractors what it is you expect.

   * Gather estimates: Ask each candidate to give you a detailed written proposal. The offer should include separate prices for labor and material. The estimate must also specify the number of coats of paint, primer and top cost as well as the name of the paint manufacturer. You should also expect the offer to include a detailed description of the surface preparation that will be carried out as well as the amount.

   * Contractor’s credentials: Make sure the company is licensed and carries liability insurance and workers comp. It never hurts to check with the local Better Business Bureau to see whether the contractor has any unattended to complaints.

Once you have decided the painters in Oak Park that you believe will give you the best job at a fair price get the estimate turned into a formal contract that includes such things as the down payment and the hold back until you are fully satisfied with the job.
