What to Look for When Hiring a Painting Professional

While there may be lots of painting professionals in Bradenton, they won’t all meet your house painting requirements. Take steps when evaluating painting contractors to make sure that the potential professionals on your list meet your needs.

Research Prior to Reaching Out

Begin with the info available on HomeAdvisor, and then move on to do more research about painting contractors you’re interested in. That may include:

  • Looking at the professional’s webpage to view what work it provides and whether it ensures service.
  • Browsing any online portfolios to see work the business has done.
  • Looking through additional feedback on Google and social media.
  • Questioning friends and family for referrals or if they are familiar with a professional you’re interested in.
  • Checking with the Better Business Bureau to ensure the business doesn’t have any unsettled issues.

Ask Plenty of Questions

Once you contact possible professionals, ask many questions. Question what type of work a professional offers and how they vet employees. Ask about timelines and budgets to make sure the company is able to work according to your schedule. Ensure the professional uses the type of paint you desire and question whether it contains the correct equipment to finish the job, including scaffolding, if required.

Ensure Professionals Are Insured and Experienced

Try to locate a business that has familiarity with work that coordinates with your job. Somebody who has only painted interior walls might not know how to cope with outside paint jobs, for example. You ought to also always check to guarantee professionals you hire have insurance coverage.

What Are Typical Services a Painting Company Provides?

Not all house painters perform all types of home painting, so it’s necessary to understand what services are provided and who you may turn to for those services. Some house painters may only paint the outside of houses, while some may specialize in interior painting. Some may only perform creative efforts, such as adding murals or decorative accent walls to rooms.

Interior Painting Jobs

Many house painting services will complete interior paint projects. This includes priming and painting walls. Experienced painters typically tape off and otherwise prepare the room to prevent paint from splashing on other areas and engage in edgework to ensure a visually appealing final outcome.

If you hope for painters to paint other surfaces, including ceilings, baseboards, or molding, ask businesses about these services before you work with them. Some might not provide that type of work and might charge extra fees.

Outdoor Painting Services

Exterior home painting professionals paint the outside of homes, including siding or other outdoor wall surfaces. Speak with potential painting professionals about the sort of area that needs painting, as this may alter the scope and price of the project. Some painting professionals will take on big or tall residences and some won’t, as not all companies have the scaffolding and workers needed to paint multi-story residences.

Creative Home Painting Services

Creative house painting jobs includes decorative components, such as specialty highlighted walls or murals. Should you desire something along these lines, speak about it first and foremost with potential companies to learn if they can provide the work or recommend an artist who can work alongside them.

Reaching out to potential painting businesses in Bradenton is the best way to discover if they may provide the work you need. Providing as many characteristics as you can regarding your preferences and goals for the painting job might also help companies offer you the most precise estimate.

Interior painting makes for a doable DIY project. You can save some money and get a real sense of accomplishment by doing this yourself. And, with the right prep work – covering, taping and scraping – it’s fairly forgiving. But it takes a lot of time to move furniture, tape trim, prep the surface and cover your floor, let alone apply the actual paint. Instead, save yourself the time and hassle and find a local interior painter.

Leave exterior painting to the pros. Not only do you need to worry about the type and quality of the paint, you’ll also likely need a ladder and considerably more prep work. You’ll likely need additional equipment like ladders, scaffolding and possibly a paint sprayer. It’s almost cheaper to just hire a pro. Talk to a local exterior house painter about your project.

  1. Do your research. Understand what to expect and what to look for in a pro. Look at paint types, prices and costs.
    1. Interior home painting costs $1,000-$2,800
    2. Exterior painting costs $1,700-$4,100
    3. Painting a ceiling costs $150-$350
    4. Painting cabinets costs $350-$1,200
    5. Trim painting costs $500-$1,500
    6. Calculate paint coverage
  2. Call pros for site inspections and estimates. Always get three to five estimates.
  3. Check references, compare quotes, look at past work. After you have estimates in hand, do one final pass to compare the contractors.
  4. Sign a contract with the pro of your choice. You might need to make a down payment, usually 25% to 50% of the total project cost to cover material costs, but not all pros require this. Don’t pay for the entire project upfront.

  • A complete inspection. Each pro takes a walk around your home to evaluate the condition of your current paint, the size of the job and any obstacles for accessing the site. They do this to see how much prep work they’ll need and estimate how long the job will take. The more thorough the inspection, the more accurate the quote.
  • Color consultation. Expect each contractor to have varying color options and suggestions. However, you have the final say.
  • Listen to the pro – they’re experts after all – but don’t get pushed into a color combination or finish type that you don’t want. Understand the different exterior paints or interior paint choices before your pro arrives.
  • A rough estimate or complete quote. Finishing contractors vary here. Usually, they can quote straightforward projects on the spot. But some may need to take it back to their shop to run numbers and give you a detailed estimate with costs broken out. Neither method is better than the other, but just make sure to get multiple quotes.

  1. How long have you been in business? A long business history helps you avoid shoddy companies. It’s hard for a service business to stay in business if they don’t do good work.
  2. Are you licensed and insured? Not all states require a license for painting homes, but many do. Always use one that’s insured.
  3. Do you belong to any professional organizations? You’ll find many online, like the Painting Contractors Association or the Finishing Contractors Association?
  4. Do you have other work I can look at? Always check a portfolio or, in the case of painters, it’s better to look at work they did a few years ago to see how well it’s held up.
  5. How long will the job take? Get a rough estimate but get it in writing.
  6. How many people are in your crew? This is especially important if you work remotely. More people generally means more noise, but they’ll be done faster.
  7. Will I be in the way if I’m home during the painting? You usually won’t be in the way, but this question helps you understand what to expect while they’re working. They’ll need to lay down coverings and do a lot of prep work.
  8. Do you guarantee your work? Never hire a painter who doesn’t guarantee their work. This often means they’ll rush the prep work, since peeling never happens right away.
  9. What type of paint do you use, and how long is it rated to last? Different rooms need different paint and the exterior needs exterior paint. It comes in different grades with different guaranteed lifetimes.
  10. Can you supply a written estimate and contract? Never use a painter who isn’t willing to put his work in writing.
