A Contracted Painter Will Make Your Life Easier

Aug 30, 2008
When I went to put a fresh coat on my house I, like many other people, felt that I could accomplish the task myself with little trouble. Little did I know that painting requires a great amount of skill that can only be learned through practice. The patience and attention to detail it requires was beyond me.

Having tried and realized I did not possess the patience to complete this task, as I was only about 10% done and beat, I decided to try another approach and get a contracted painter to do the project. The contractor I hired was professional in nature, speaking to me in a professional tone, but also quite friendly at the same time. He and his team were also efficient in their work. They had about 4 or 5 guys working with them and the larger sized team allowed them to get the job done much more quickly than I would dreamed on my own. A contracted painter can have a bad reputation sometimes and avoiding these is very important.

I was quite cautious to avoid a contractor that would only give me headaches and cause me more stress than I was already experiencing. I have heard horror stories regarding a contracted painter that a friend hired a few years back. She told me that they appeared for the first day's work and nothing seemed out of place. However, when they failed to appear the rest of the week, naturally she grew concerned. When they finally showed up the following week, she told me that when she confronted the man in charge, he brushed her complaint aside by telling her about their other larger projects they had to attend to. Her experience with this contractor, they were also rude, sloppy and generally disrespectful to her home and lawn, persuaded me to do more research when finding a good painter.

Testimonials like this are not always available when you look into a painter's history. Often times painters will include testimonials in any ads they place or on their website, but not all of them do it. A lot can be determined about a contracted painter by your initial meeting with them. Not everybody makes the best first impressions, but throughout your first meeting, it is usually pretty easy to determine how a contractor will act through the time you hire them by the vibe you get from them. My own contractor turned out to be quite pleasant. They showed up on time, finished the project and were very kind to my lawn, something that as very important to me.

Be careful to hire a contracted painter who will provide excellent work, but also who is dependable and respectful. It is never any fun to deal with rude contractors who see you as just another project and may disrespect your home. Find a contractor who will respect you and your family and will show up on a regular basis until your project is complete. Avoid those who would blow off your house in favor of other larger project than your own.
