Painting a house, whether it’s inside or out, is a big job. It requires plenty of experience, expertise, and the right equipment. Before you hire one of your local painting companies, you need to know how qualified and dedicated they are to getting the job done right. Fortunately, The Paint People have posted this helpful YouTube video entitled How to Pick a House Painter.
In it, they describe everything you should consider and ask your prospecting painting company before inviting them to do the job.
- How many coats of paint are included with each surface?
One layer is not enough. A complete job will include primer and at least two coats.
- What types of paint and products will you use?
Quality paint will last for years. Cheap paint won’t. Make sure you are getting what you are paying for.
- How well-trained/insured are your team members?
Painters should be as experienced as advertised, and they should be insured to protect you.
- May I see a portfolio of your work?
It’s a good idea to get some verification of quality work. Painters should have full-size color images of completed work.
Armed with this knowledge, you should be well on your way to hiring the right team to paint your home. Don’t forget to tune into The Paint People and subscribe for more great content.
