Guide to Hiring a Professional Painter

Hiring the right painter is an incredibly important task. The last thing you want is to end up with a poor professional who does a shoddy job painting your home. Not only can this make your home look aesthetically displeasing, but a poor job means that you will have to get it repainted sooner. The following is a guide that will help you find and work with a professional painter.

Keep in Mind the Costs – There are a number of costs involved with having your home painted. Make sure you consider the costs of labor, the costs of the paint as well as other supplies, and the price that the painter will charge based on the amount of work and skill required. Keep all of this in mind when comparing different professional painters.

Recommendations – One of the best ways to find a respected professional painter is by asking around. Ask friends and family members for recommendations. If they recommend you someone, don’t just take their word for it. Ask to see the job the painter did so you can judge for yourself. What your friend thought was a good job may not seem like a good job to you.

Deciding Your Designs – Have a good idea of what colors and finishes you want to use for the different areas in your home before you speak with a painter. Don’t be afraid to ask the painter for his or her opinions, but do not let the painter make the decision, since you may not end up being happy with it.

Ask for Samples – Before blindly choosing a color, ask to see a couple of samples so that you know what it will look like.

Additional Requests – Don’t be afraid to ask for special requests. For example, if there is a specific brand of paint you prefer, such as a brand that is more environmentally friendly, let the painter know.

The Contract – Make sure everything you have discussed, from the costs and materials used to the time of completion, are written down in a contract and signed by both parties.

Make Necessary Repairs First – Before having your walls painted, make sure that you have any structural issues repaired first.

Prepare the Area Being Painted – You’re going to want to take everything off the wall that is being painted. You should also move things such as rugs or smaller pieces of furniture to another room. Furniture that cannot be moved, such as larger couches or tables, should be covered with plastic sheeting to avoid accidental paint splatter.

Have the Area Cleaned – Once the painting is done, make sure painter and any of his or her crew cleans up the area.

Keep these tips in mind when working with a professional painter.
