Benefits of hiring a painter

People with busy lives or those who do not consider themselves do-it-yourselfers may need to hire a professional painter when building a new home or giving an existing one a thorough makeover.
Professional painters and contractors usually offer a variety of services, which may include painting both interior and exterior surfaces and hanging wall coverings. Some may even treat wood surfaces and carry out minor repairs.
Most paint contractors have their clients’ best interests in mind and understand the importance of doing a good job. This starts with offering a written bid or quote, which should include all details about the work that needs to be done, estimated time to complete the assignment, hourly rates/rate by project, and if the paint, primers and finishes are included. An experienced and licensed painter will also gladly provide references from former clients or jobs he successfully completed in the past years.
Often the person giving the estimate will not be the painter. When hiring a qualified and skilled paint contractor, try talking to the actual painter who is going to do the job to see if he can offer suggestions, and to see if you feel he is proficient. Real professionals stay informed of advances in their field by subscribing to painting trade magazines, attending manufacturers’ training courses and other educational events, and by working closely with manufacturers’ representatives. A licensed contractor will pay attention to all these details, because he not only wants to perform an excellent job, but wants you to refer him to friends and family, and keep him in mind when it is time for another home make-over.
