What Are The Most Important Questions To Ask Before I Hire A Professional Painter?

Painting your house is a big deal and it requires a lot of thought and consideration. Make sure you’re prepared to ask questions before, during, and after the estimate. To help you prepare for your project, I have included several important questions that will guide you through the decision-making process. 

Recommended reading:

What brand and what specific paint are you using? 

A professional painter should provide you with the brand of paint that they prefer. They should also offer you options and/or explain the different options so that you can decide which is best for your project. For example, we typically use Sherwin Williams and PPG paints. Within their line, we warranty Emerald, Duration, and SuperPaint options.

What colors will look good on my home?

Colors have the ability to create a mood for your home. They either enhance the look of your home or make it an eyesore. When selecting a color you should consider the look of the neighborhood, current trends, your roof color, and your personal preferences. 

Here at Heritage Custom Painting, we offer lots of color help. We have a dedicated color consultant that works with all of our clients to find the right color for their homes. To complement that, we have a virtual rendering service that helps clients visualize a color on their home before we actually apply paint. It’s a great service to see if a specific color is right for you!

Is there a warranty? 

Reputable painting contractors will offer a warranty. Your home is probably your greatest investment so be sure the work comes with a warranty. If a company does not offer a warranty, it’s typically a reflection of the poor quality of workmanship or the lack of quality paint. Heritage Custom Painting offers a best-in-class warranty.

Is the paint durable? 

Paint that is more durable is more costly upfront, but in the end, it’s more cost-efficient and saves you time. Cheaper paint will chip, the colors will fade and it will wear off quickly making your home an eyesore. Durable paint will save you money and give your home a vibrant, classy look. 

Do you have insurance? 

Reputable painting contractors will carry general liability insurance and worker’s compensation. It’s important for your contractor to have both of these so you are not liable for any damage or harm caused on your project. 

Speak with your painting contractor about these questions so you can make the best decision for you and your home.
