Who to call for your painting estimate

Who To Call For Your Painting Estimate

When you first decide to paint anything around your home your first thought maybe can I do this myself? After realizing that your time can better be spent on other things or you would rather have a professional job done the question arises, who do you call?

You can ask friends who they have used in the past and their experience with companies or like me when I am looking for any service I open up Google and search painters.

You will get many results, some reputable companies, others not so, the service lead providers such as Home Advisor or Angie's List will show up. Remember most of the companies pay to be on those sites.

What you should be looking for is a company that from the start has great communication, let's face it most companies will give you the same paint job if you're speaking about the normal wall. It is the other things such as training their employees, do they even use employees and the backing of the work they do.

When you first call see how long it takes someone to get back to you if at all, that is a great indication if once your project starts how communication will go. I am not saying they will be at you beckon call but a professional company will either answer the phone or return a phone call during normal business hours promptly. If they don't you can assume they will certainly not once the project starts pr an issue arises.
Yes, an issue can happen, it happens to the best companies, sometimes that is their fault or issues out of their control. It's the sign of a great company when they don't run and hide but stand behind their work and complete or correct the contracted work. 

Are the crews trained? With our company, we offer a ton of training and it is required. From the start of the job to while it is going on and finishing our crews are trained to make this experience a great and professional one.

So when you're looking for a painting contractor look beyond the price, a low price does not usually make for the best job as also the high price may not either. Listen to what products will be used and why each company may have a different way of applying their paint or the method the project will be done.

Remember the way you're treated in that initial phone call will usually be a great sign of things to come.

The most asked questions about painting

Frequently asked painting questions

We get a ton of questions each day regarding a potential house painting project and to avoid and missed expectations it is a great idea to ask every question you may have.

A project can go wrong quickly if something was never communicated to your painting contractor and they start a project doing things they believe were correct and spoken about.
Nothing is worse than an unhappy client as they will make everyone else unhappy as well.
All the painters want to do and live for is at the end of the project to look back at a great job and a smiling client.

To alleviate this we write everything down in our proposals, record estimates, send videos, blogs, and many many emails. We try to overly communicate all of this info so there are no surprises once that project begins.

Here is a recent video we did on our YouTube channel, there are many other informative videos on there as well so make sure you click subscribe.
