How to Choose the Right Painting Company

For any home improvement project, it is important to choose a trustworthy and reputable contractor. This is especially true when it comes to choosing a contractor to paint the interior or exterior of your house. Here at Prime Time Painting, we want our customers to rest assured that they are in good hands when they choose us as their painting contractor. To ensure that you, our valued customer, is as informed as possible, we have come up with a list of helpful hints for choosing the right painting company for you home improvement project.

Do Your Research
Make sure to spend some time looking into a painting contractor before you call them and ask them to come to your house. Take a few minutes to go through their website. First, check to see if they provide the service you are looking for. Then look around at some of their other pages. Look for an “About Us” page. Read through it and ask yourself, “Is this a company I want to do business with?”

Also check for reviews online. A painting company that has been in business for a long time and done well by its customers should have enough reviews for you to get a sense of the service they provide. Common sites to check are Yelp, Facebook, and Google, but also take a look at sites like the Better Business Bureau (BBB.org) and ChamberofCommerce.com.

Painting Estimates Should Always Be Free
Why should you pay a business for them to tell you how much they are going to charge you? It makes no sense, and you should not stand for it. At Prime Time Painting, we know that we have not won your business until the job is complete and you are fully satisfied. We know you have choices when it comes to painting contractors, and we consider it a privilege to come to your house and explain our services to you.

Painting Estimates Should Be Thorough
When it comes to a service at your home, don’t leave anything to chance. Who wants to spend a bunch of money only to find out they are only getting half of what they paid for? If you want it painted, make sure the estimator knows it and documents it. Don’t let the estimator brush anything aside, and don’t settle for assurances like, “Oh, we’ll figure it out.” Get it written down!

Painting Contractors Are Professionals
This applies to every interaction you have with your painting company. From the moment someone answers your call until the job is finished, you should expect the utmost curtesy and respect. Nobody would invite someone with ill manners and foul language to a family party, so why should it be different when it comes to work on your home? All of our employees at Prime Time Painting are trained professionals who take their trade seriously. We understand that without you, our valued customers, we would not be able to do what we love -paint houses with impeccable service.
