How to Choose a Painting Contractor

We know that choosing a painting contractor to trust with your home can be an intimidating and time-consuming process.

Among the most common fears that homeowners have when thinking about hiring a painting contractor are that:

  • The final price will be more than the quote
  • It won't look as good as they claim
  • The paint job won't last as long as they promise
  • They won't honor the warrranty
  • My final punch list will never get finished
Among the biggest frustrations they experienced after hiring a painting contractor were that:
  • They didn't return my calls promptly or stay in contact throughout the project
  • They didn't clean up
  • I couldn't get them to finish my punch list
