Why Hire A Professional To Paint Your Home?

We all like to save money, but before you decide to hire the least expensive painter or opt to "do it yourself,” consider these points that suggest the lowest price may not be the best value.

Painting can be hazardous work, whether it’s working on a ladder or dealing with solvents and dust. Hiring a professional contractor means you don’t have to worry about these problems.

Preparation And Painting
Getting the surface properly prepared makes all the difference. Professional contractors know the value of preparation and will do it right the first time.

Knowing Paints and How to Apply Them
The choices today are more complicated than just oil or latex, and professional contractors will know what works, how to use it, and what tools are right for the job, thus saving you the cost of buying the wrong products. Professional contractors utilize and partner with professional paint and coatings suppliers to help save you time and money.

Cleanup And Disposal
Hiring a professional contractor means you don’t have to worry about dealing with paint residues and other leftovers. Professionals know how to handle and dispose of hazardous wastes that may be part of the job for painting in Knoxville.

Choosing A Contractor

Always verify that the contractor is licensed and insured. Quality contracting firms will be only too happy to provide you with copies of their certificates of insurance.

Request A Written Contract
Reputable contractors will encourage the use of a written contract. This contract should clearly explain the scope of the work to be performed. It should also cover such items as surfaces to be painted, specific materials used, methods and extent of surface preparation, and payment procedures. Knowing the total scope of the work enables you to carefully evaluate the different bids you may receive with the proper information and keep them on a level playing field. The contract serves to protect both you and the contractor.

Invest Time in Verifying References
Obtain a list of references from the prospective contractor. This list should include the contact person, address, and telephone number of the previous client. Follow up on this list with a phone call. Be sure to ask whether the contractor and employees treated you professionally and with respect. Also, some of the projects should be at least a few years old. This will help you gauge the performance of the construction and materials used. Remember you are looking for long-term durability from the paint job. The use of high quality products is as important as the selection and performance of the contractor. Verifying references will provide a return on your project investment.

In Closing
Good contractors are very eager for your business. They are also very proud of their craftsmanship. Once you have made your selection, step back and give the professional room to execute the project. You have both done your homework, so give the professional the opportunity to meet and exceed your expectations. Here's to your successful painting in Maryville projects.
