Your time is valuable!  Hire a professional painter for your next project😀

Using a professional painting contractor takes the stress out of painting your home. But finding the right one is an important decision that requires careful consideration.
Paintway give you the  following tips to hire the right professional for any painting project:

The best way to find a quality painting contractor is to get referrals from friends, neighbours, and acquaintances who have had good experiences with painting contractors in your area.

Get Quotes from at Least Two Contractors Paintway are always competitive with price.

If quotes differ widely from one another, ask what is not being done or where corners are being cut. Often the less you pay the quality will suffer. Cheap Price …Cheap Painting Job 🙂

Don’t be afraid to ask questions! The only silly question is the one that isn’t asked!

Always ask contractors the following questions:
How long have you been in business?
Do you have the proper/required licenses? (This varies by state, and some states may not require licensing.)
Do you have insurance? (This helps determine whether your contractor and any hired workers are insured for injury and liability.)
Can you provide references?
Do you offer written guarantees of your work?
What products do you use?

Be Specific About the Project
It’s a good idea to walk each potential contractor around the areas (indoor or outdoor) to be painted while discussing your needs, and particularly any aspects of the project that could affect the price. Be specific about which surfaces you want to have painted (walls, trims, moldings, ceilings, etc.) and the paint colours and finishes you want used.

As you meet with each contractor, pay attention to the following signs and behaviours:
Does the contractor project a sense of professionalism and experience?
Is the contractor courteous and business-like?
Is the contractor busy? (Good ones usually are.)
Does the contractor return phone calls and provide quotes in a timely manner?
Is the contractor on time for appointments?

Review the Contract
Once you’ve settled on a contractor, ask for a written contract and review it carefully. As a consumer, you have the right to ask detailed questions about any issues you need clarified. In particular, be sure to verify the following:
What exactly is being painted (house, trim, walls, moulding, etc.)
Details on preparation and cleanup We always CLEAN UP! Alot of Painters Don’t.
Paint colours for each area to be painted
How the contractor will protect plants, patios, furniture, or other items
How much time the project will take, from start to finish
When and how the contractor will be paid
Once you complete these steps, you’ll be ready to hire the right painting contractor—and enjoy your newly painted home.
