Be careful when hiring painting companies.

Hiring Painters Can be a scary process.

Caution When Hiring Painters

You have to be very careful hiring painting companies to do your work. They may seem professional, large and well known but a little-known trick of the trade is they will sub contract the work to a lower priced noninsured painting company. The only reason they do this is to make more money off of your project. They will not have to pay payroll taxes, workers compensation to their employees because they have none. They will have no idea who will be in your home until a day or so before the job starts and it will be whoever is available. You're risking your home and your project by trying to save a few dollars and making other people rich at that expense. When hiring these companies the major issue is they are uninsured, yes they may have liability insurance but if one of their painters was injured on your property and they find out they have no workers compensation guess who is responsible? Not just the painting company, you and your insurance and this could be a huge hit.



Make certain to not hire these "pro's"


It is hard enough to find contractors you can trust and now they are sneaking in uninsured subcontractors if they don’t know who will be at your home how can you be assured they can be trusted around your family and valuables?
The danger, of course, is the unknown, yes your project may come out great and that is gamble, is it worth taking?
When you hire a painting company ask if they will subcontract your job out and ask for a copy of their liability and workers comp insurance FROM their insurance agent, this should be sent directly to you from them because guess what? They will show you fake documents too.
