No matter the size of your house painting project, you want to know you're leaving it in good hands when hiring a painting contractor. The only way to know for sure is to ask all the right questions—from qualifications to the final cost projection. Residents in and around Anchorage, AK will find all of the right answers at Alaska Painting & Construction, which has built a solid reputation for providing the most thorough and affordable home remodeling services available.
As for what you should ask, here are five key questions to get you started:
Are Your Workers Licensed & Insured?
The first questions to pop up will likely be whether or not the painting contractor is licensed with fully insured workers. A license indicates that certain standards will be met in the house painting process, and insured workers mean that the homeowner won't be held financially liable for any injury that occurs during the project.
How Do You Handle Prep & Cleanup?
Whether you're hiring a contractor for interior or exterior paint work, you want to know how they plan on completing the task. Preparation is just as important as the actual painting, so you should ask about the details of their process. Similarly, it helps to be confident about how thorough their cleanup will be. The last thing you want is a painting contractor that leaves a big mess behind.
How Long Will The Job Take?
The length of time for a job can depend on a number of factors—from the amount of workers sent to handle the task to any weather conditions that may hinder exterior work. It's worth getting a rough idea of how long they expect to take before you commit.
Can I Get An Estimate On The Final Cost?
A good deal of your expectations will come down to how much the entire project ends up costing. Keep in mind that low or high prices do not guarantee the same level of quality, and it's more important to find a contractor who is open about all of the included costs. Request an estimate in advance, and do your best to know everything you're going to want them to do before finalizing.
Does Your Work Come With A Guarantee?
Speaking of guarantees, any roofing contractor worth their salt will offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee to all their clients. You can look into more specific warranties in the process, but top-notch service that the contractor is willing to bet on is key.
The ultimate sign of a reliable roofer will simply be anyone who is open to honestly answering all of these questions and more.
