A few things we have learned over the years:
When you pay your hard-earned money to a painting company it’s fair to expect them to perform at or above your expectations. They are going to disrupt your routine for the entire time they are working on your home. This means their work must be efficient and neat. They must protect your belongings and honor agreed upon timeframes. A company’s experience, manpower, equipment and systems directly equate to a successful paint job resulting in less disruption to your valuable time.
-Preparation is critical to a successful job. Professional painters know how to prepare a job so the finish coat will have no flaws and protect the surface for years.
– There are many mistakes inexperienced painters make. This is especially true when painting and staining woodwork, cabinets and doors, painting bathrooms, working with deep colors and going over repaired surfaces.
– It’s critical that the estimator is an experienced painter. A positive experience starts with the estimator. Inexperience and unprofessional behavior will result in frustration and sub-par work. Put simply, everyone working on your job needs enough experience to know what steps are necessary to assure a successful outcome.
– On most projects, reputable painting company’s bids will come in within 10-15% of each other. Some companies are better than others in specific areas but we all have similar expenses. If you receive a bid that seems to good to be true it likely is.
