Finding a company that does quality work for a fair price with honesty and integrity can be a challenge, whether you need a mechanic, an accountant, or an interior painter. Here in Gaithersburg, there are so many options to choose from, but how do you know you will be pleased with the results? In the case of a painting contractor, there are some helpful clues that can help you evaluate your options. Let's take a look at them, so you can choose your interior painter with confidence!
A transparent painting company is one that openly offers you all the information you need to make a wise choice. Those details include items such as...
- A written estimate that specifies the quality of paint, the level of surface preparation, the number of paint coats, the exact surfaces that will be painted, and everything else relevant to the scope of the project.
- Proof of liability insurance and Worker's Compensation insurance.
- Evidence of local and state licensing.
- Any credentials related to the work they will perform, such as Lead-Safe Certification from the EPA.
It seems like everyone has heard nightmare stories about painting contractors who collected a large deposit and then never showed up for the job, or an interior painter who made a significant mistake and would not respond to requests to fix it. How do you know if you are getting a reliable house painter or a fly-by-night charlatan?
This is one of the strengths of online review services, such as Google Reviews, Yelp, Angie's List, and HomeAdvisor. These reviews give you the chance to hear from other Gaithersburg residents about their experiences with the same company. You can also take a glance at their rating on the Better Business Bureau website.
Additionally, take a look at how long the contractor has been in business. If it is a family-run painting company that has been operating in the same area for decades, you can usually assume you are working with someone who will strive to maintain an excellent reputation.
Finally, you can also evaluate how reliable the company seems during your first interactions with them, before you sign a contract. For example, how prompt are they about responding to communication? Are they timely in arriving for their estimate appointment? Is the estimator polite and helpful, without being pushy?
