March 20th, 2017 Low Painting Bids–Tempting, But Costly In The End.

Spring time is already here! This is the season of renewal and rebirth. New beautiful flowers, new leaves on trees, people are out again–everything is sprouting back to life. And it is no different when it comes to your home. Most of us really love the idea of spring cleaning and everything looking fresh and new again, especially during the spring.

Spring time is already here! This is the season of renewal and rebirth. New beautiful flowers, new leaves on trees, people are out again–everything is sprouting back to life.

When it comes to painting, most believe that all you need is a paint and a brush. Well, au contrarie! A lot is involve with interior and exterior painting if you want your end result to be a beautiful, quality, and long-lasting interior or exterior paint job.  Bellow are a few points to consider before you hire a painting contractor. 

1. Most often than not, the most costly (and critical to the quality and longevity of your painting job) aspect of any interior or exterior painting project is the prep work quality. There is where the majority of the labor and attention goes to. Unfortunately, this is how many poor quality painting contractors cut their prices and low bids happen. Well, this is not the place to cut cost. It will definitely come back to hunt you. 

2. I am sure you have heard before the phrase, “you are as good as your employees.”  Well, this is definitely true when dealing with painters as most construction workers think they can paint. Painting is a craft and it takes years of training to achieve professional, artisan status. Jason Bertoniere Painting Contractor spend significant amounts of resources in training to convert good painters into master painters. 

3. Quality products are a must. High quality paint has the best resins (binders), extenders, pigments, solvents, and additives, which is absolutely essential to a long-lasting painting job.  I never quite understood why most painting contractors choose to use cheap, low quality products when materials account for the smallest percentage of the total budget. 

4. Another aspect to consider is warranties. A warranty is essentially a promise to stand behind a product or service that was provided.  And after investing money into your home, it offers a major peace of mind to know that if something goes wrong, your painting contractor will stand behind his/her work.  

5. Last but not least, insurance is something that all homeowners should ask for whenever they hire any contractor to do work in their homes. Hiring somebody without insurance is not a risk worth taking.
