What to know when choosing a painting contractor
Your time and effort is valuable and if you want to work with a professional painter for your next projects, the team here at DJB Services can definitely help. Using an expert painting contractor in Nelspruit takes the strain out of painting and decorating your house, but choosing the best painting contractor is an important decision that will require careful consideration.
Always ask painting contractors the following questions:
How long are you currently in operation?
Do you have insurance and bonding? (This can help decide if your contractor as well as any hired personnel are insured for injury and liability.)
Do you subcontract your projects or perform it yourself?
Can you provide references?
Do you offer written guarantees of your work?
What products would you use?
Be specific about the project
It’s wise to walk each painting contractor across the areas (outdoor or indoor) to become painted while discussing your requirements, especially any areas of the project that could impact the price. Be specific about which surfaces you want to have painted (walls, trims, moldings, ceilings, etc.) and also the paint colors and finishes you want to use.
Be sure to get at least three references from past customers and speak to them directly. If possible, visit references to observe the painter’s work in person and to find out how well it has held up as time passes. Here are some of our testimonials from our valued customers.
Look at the painting contract
Once you’ve settled on a specialist, request a written contract and check it carefully. As a consumer, you have the right to ask detailed questions about any items you need clarified. In particular, be sure to verify the examples below:
What exactly will be painted (house, trim, walls, molding, etc.)
Details on preparation and cleanup
Paint colors for each area to be painted
How the contractor will protect plants, patios, furniture, and other items
How much time the project can take, from start to finish
When and how the contractor is going to be paid
