Whether it’s a detailed interior work or an entire exterior paint job, house painting needs to be done right the first time. However, there are dozens of painting contractors in Fremont from which to choose. Finding the right one can be a pretty challenging proposition. So, to make things easier, here are some ways to find the right painting contractor for your job.
Ask for recommendations from friends and neighbors.
If you have friends and neighbors who have hired professional paint jobs in the past, ask them about their experience. They may invite you to their home to show you the finished work. They will recommend these contractors for your project if they’re happy with the job.
Word of mouth is often a painting contractor’s best and most valuable form of advertising. Contractors who do the best service will have the best word of mouth.
Look for customer reviews online.
Most people search the Internet for local painting contractors, checking out customer reviews, ratings, and testimonials. You may want to take online reviews with a grain of salt. If your gut feels that this review is honest and written by a genuine customer, trust it. However, it may not be accurate if the review is overly glowing.
Any painting contractor with a good reputation on the Internet should also be a good and trustworthy contractor in real life.
Be sure to ask pertinent questions to your contractor.
Choosing the right contractor may be dizzying. To ensure you hire the best contractor, make a list of questions to ask contractors you interview, including the following:
- Do you have the proper licenses?
- Are you bonded and insured?
- How many years have you been in business?
- Do you employ your workers, or do you subcontract?
- What products do you use?
- Do you offer any warranties or guarantees?
- Can you provide references?
It can’t be overstated, though, how important it is to ensure that you’re hiring a contractor with a valid license, general liability insurance, and worker’s compensation insurance. You may also want to consider hiring a contractor who does more than paint. Custom Painting, Inc.’s team of skilled employees has years of daily experience in doing more than just painting. If you’re thinking of adding custom crown molding, we have the expertise needed to install crown molding and transform the look of your entire home.
Ask for solid references from satisfied customers.
Most reputable painting contractors will provide references from their satisfied clients. Use these references to contact happy clients, who will chat about their experiences for a few minutes. Maybe they even want to invite you to their homes so that you can inspect the latest job by the contractor and see if it still holds up well.
Get a detailed and accurate estimate.
Be sure to request an estimate from a potential contractor. You should ask for estimates from at least three different contractors.
