There are many resources available to you when you’re trying to locate additional options for painting contractors. However, there’s no guarantee that any of the random names that you’ll find in your local phone book or online will be reputable contractors. There are two excellence sources where we recommend you begin your search.
First is the Better Business Bureau. At your local BBB.org website you can search for Better Business Bureau Accredited Painting Contractors in your area. On their website you can check out the contractors’ BBB rating and review if they have had any previously unresolved complaints from customers.
Second is Angie's List. There are a myriad of websites that offer online reviews, but many of them are filled with bogus reviews - both good and bad - which prevent you from getting an accurate picture of the kind of company that you're interested in doing business with. Only Angie's List members pay for the privilege of joining a trusted online community where they know that the information they're getting from their fellow members has been verified, so they can be certain that the company they're selecting is reputable.
Finally, there's the FindAPainter.com website. This is one of the Painting & Decorating Contractors of America’s website where you can search for PDCA painters in your area. The PDCA is the painting industry’s premier trade organization. They work with architects, engineers, and industry specifiers to set the standards for the way that quality painting work should be done. PDCA painters and better educated in proper techniques as well as the latest technological advances in the industry. Most importantly, PDCA painters pledge to follow these quality standards so you can feel comfortable that you are selecting a professional that will give you the best value for your money and who doesn’t cut corners on your home.
