4 Things to be Aware of before Hiring a Painter
Tuesday, January 30, 2018

They say painting is an art, it is poetry, and it is something spiritual. Well, Picasso and Michelangelo might have gone that deep, but for an average person looking to paint his house, it might be a slightly different affair. Despite the loss of the theatrics, having your house painted is still an arduous task that requires considerable deliberations. This post helps you streamline your thoughts by providing you certain guidelines to follow.

1. It is important to know your requirements

Like with every other task you perform in everyday life, you must be aware of what work you need done. This could depend on the existing condition of the part you intend to have painted but its not hard to figure it out.

a. Specify the parts that need painting
Is it the interior or the exterior? Is it the entire house? Be as specific as you can about the work. Notice any major damages beforehand and determine which ones need repair and what kind of it.

b. Make sure the house is ready for painting
There are a lot of things that you need to do before your house is ready to be painted. Firstly, you have to be sure you’re going to have it painted. You’ll have to remove any furniture and fixtures on the walls and leave the room vacant for a couple days. Make sure you’re ready for all the hassle. 

2. Referrals are the most effective in finding the best service

Ask you trusted colleagues and family members of any services that they employed and what were their reviews about them. Only the ones that get a five-star rating from them are the most worthy of being called over to do the job for you.

3. Perform a thorough inspection of the credentials

Even after receiving a referral, make sure you perform your checks in order to be satisfied. Ask to see their complete portfolio and credentials, their previous work and clients and any other relevant information that you might think is important.

a. Go through previous clients
Once you’ve gotten the clientele from the service, make sure you contact them and get their reviews first hand to make sure you’re not duped. This lends further credibility to the previous referrals that you received.

b. Check for licenses, permits and ask for guarantees
It is important to check for the necessary documents that would be required by the person in order to perform the home painting job at your house without any complications with the law and to make sure you’re satisfied with the end result.

4. Determine if you’re comfortable with everything

Every person has their own experiences from a service provider depending on their own expectations. You’ve had a substantial interaction with the service provider and you’ll be able to determine whether you are comfortable with them or not. If not, you can always switch to other available options because being uncomfortable will lead to inconveniences later on.

Having a checklist of things that you should know before you start on your house painting job will help you greatly in order to determine the appropriate things to look for and those that you should know. It will also greatly benefit you in planning all related processes like your budget and convenience effectively.
