How to Choose the Right Painting Contractor Based on Time and Quality of Work

Choosing the right painting service can be a difficult thing to do especially if you want to hire one for a big commercial or residential improvement project. As a consumer, it is understandable that all you want to have is the highest quality output in exchange for the money that you invest. The dilemma is that the most affordable painting estimate isn’t usually the best value. With the absence of right information, consumers like you can be simply misled by too good to be true price alone.

Time vs. Quality

The time is money saying might be an old adage, but it does hold true when it comes to painting your commercial or residential property. The painting estimate’s bottom line basically reflects the required period of time to complete the project. While this is not always the case, you can assume that a costly painting estimate would allow a much longer period of time to totally complete the painting job. Conversely, a more affordable estimate would reflect a much quicker completion of the painting project.

On the other hand, not all painting service providers have the same point of view of what a professional painting job should really be. As a matter of fact, some painting contractors are focusing on delivering high quality service, while others focus on the time needed to complete a certain painting project. A typical painting quotation and estimate can include thorough covering and masking, professional paint application, meticulous surface preparation, as well as the utilization of premium quality paints. However, painting contractors that specialize in providing affordable services to their customers prefer to use time saving techniques of service. Painting preparation is a painting component in which a considerable amount of time can be saved. Another way to keep your painting project low of costs is to opt for cheaper grade paints and painting service, but you should be ready for the consequence the quality of the output may bring.

Furthermore, the result of a painting job is not only based on the time spend in order to complete it. A reputable painting company that employs highly skilled, talented as well knowledgeable painters that can work efficiently and effectively can be able to provide a better painting service in the same amount in the same time frame as a poorly run painting contractor that has much higher rate of employee turnover.

Therefore, before you seek the help of a particular painting company, you should also take into account all your budget expectations and outcome. After you have come up with the right outcome and budget plan, look for the most reliable and professional painting contractor that could best match your own preferences. A very cheap estimate for a painting project may not totally meet or exceed your expectations of quality service. Thus, a painting project proposal that is primarily based on the quality of work might be a budget buster. When you hire professional commercial painters, it is essential that you weigh first the time and quality of work that they can be able to offer you.

How to Find the Right Painting Contractor

Choosing the right painting company to help you beautify and protect your home of commercial building can be one of the most overwhelming tasks you will ever do in your whole life, especially if you have never tried hiring anyone to do a big commercial or residential property improvement project before. The most ideal way to seek a reputable painting company is through the referral process. Your family members, friends, as well as colleagues are certainly the most trustworthy and reliable sources for recommendations. Some reputable general contractors in your location can also be a good source for references.

Painting Contractor

Additional sources for reliable painting contractor referrals include different painting contractor associations and networks. A lot of these organizations have a requirement that only a properly insured and licensed painting contractor is allowed to join. However, since these referral networks types don’t commonly establish personal relationships with their member, they only offer very little information regarding with the work and business practices of the company.

The Selection Process

One common practice that most people do whenever they hire a contractor or a service is to obtain at least 3 estimates. It is certainly a good idea since from there, you can be able to discuss the project with every potential contractor that you have shortlisted. When you discuss with the potential contractor the details of your painting project, make sure to discuss your concerns, expectations and any aspects of the job that might affect the price in order to avoid hidden charges.

In order to choose the right painting company, make sure that you ask these following questions:

  • What kinds of painting jobs do you usually perform? (You can ask about residential repaints, new homes under construction, commercial space, apartments etc. Ask further about their experiences.)
  • How long have the painting company been in the painting industry?
  • Does the painting company have the required or proper bonding and licenses? (While some states might not require licensing, some still do so this is a very important question to ask from a certain painting contractor)
  • Does the painting company have the proper liability insurance policies and workers compensation?
  • Does the painting company subcontract work?
  • Can the painting contractor provide at least 2 or 3 references?
  • Does the painting company offer a written guarantee of their services?

You can also ask the painting contractor to give you a detailed painting estimate. You should also request necessary information about the following aspects:

  • what is to be serviced
  • extent of the preparation of the surface
  • what paint application method will be used
  • number of paint coats
  • kinds of paints and finishes
  • exact number of painters
  • estimated to have the painting project completed

You can also follow up the client referrals from every painting company. Try to get an idea about the job satisfaction rate of their previous customers.

Final Thoughts

Do your best to find the right painting contractor – whether residential or commercial painters – that is a good match for your painting project. Try to find the most experienced, professional and reputable one so you can rest worry free knowing that your property is in good hands.
