When looking for a painting contractor, there are a few key aspects to consider. The first thing to look for when deciding on a painter is insurance. College Pro Painters comes with $2,000,000 liability insurance to make sure the homeowner and their property is always protected against any issues that could come up. They also carry full workers’ compensation for the employees who do the actual painting. Another thing to request from a contractor is before and after pictures of previous work, as well as references from past clients. Any reputable contractor working in your area should have similar jobs they can share with you – to build confidence, or perhaps even to give you ideas about what you might like to do on your own home. Finally, the most important thing to take note of is the person. If there is even a shadow of a doubt that something might be “fishy” about the contractor, or the work the contractor is promising, get a second quote – in other words, check your gut. With my College Pro Painters franchise, I make sure to outline everything that will be done, in detail, and take note of anything special that the client wishes to have done. This eliminates any confusion and makes the experience as stress free as possible.
To summarize: look for security, quality & a trustworthy individual.
