Homeowners often tackle home improvement projects in the spring, and painting — both the interior and exterior — is a great return on investment. While painting is a common do-it-yourself task, many homeowners prefer to let professional painters handle it instead.
With almost 35 years experience, Hoffman Interior Painting in Montclair, NJ, recommends doing your research before hiring anyone to paint your home. When choosing a professional painter, ask these questions to find the best fit.
4 Questions to Ask Painters
1. What Kind of Experience Do You Have?
As with anything, experience matters. Look for an established company or painter who can provide references, and follow up with those references. Also, check the company’s rating with your local Better Business Bureau. A professional painter will have accreditations, such as membership in the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America. They will also be insured and should provide proof of insurance.
2. What Services Do You Provide?
Understand what services the professional painter offers before you hire them. For example, will they remove the wallpaper before they paint, or are you responsible for doing it? Will they clean up after themselves each day? Will they help you choose the color? Hoffman Interior Painting specializes in interior painting and does each of the above, using a seven-step process on each project to guarantee the best results.
3. What Kind of Materials Do You Use?
The quality of paint and painting tools can impact a finished project. Hoffman Interior Painting uses quality paints and materials, including non-toxic, low, and non-VOC paint that won’t break your budget.
4. Do You Guarantee Your Work?
Make sure any painter you hire is willing to take responsibility for poor work. Hoffman Interior Painting offers a three-year warranty on their paint jobs. That’s because they use a 20-point checklist to guarantee quality, and if customers aren’t happy, their painters won’t consider the job finished until they are.
