Painting Services At A Fair Value

Most painting jobs are too big for one or two people to accomplish alone. That’s where hiring painting services comes in. It can, however, be a challenge to find Atlanta House Painters who can do the job quickly, and for a painting servicesreasonable price.

The first step in contracting painting services is to look up companies online. Find out if they are licensed and whether they are able to complete the work to your satisfaction. Check their references and get recommendations from people who have used them. Contact the Better Business Bureau about complaints and the state about any legal or financial woes.

Next, get estimates from two to three companies. Estimates should include: description of what you want, estimated cost of the completed project, estimated time frame for completion, beginning and ending dates, the brand of paint, special pricing (discounts, hidden costs or costs for unforeseen problems that invariably arise), if their work is guaranteed, if they offer custom painting and whether the company is insured.

1)      The first impression you get from the person doing the estimate will give you an idea of what to expect from the painters.

2)      One company takes longer to do the job, but has a record for getting it done right the first time. The other companies get the job done faster and have a history of  being called back at least once to fix problems – but it will cost less money.

3)      One company prefers more expensive paint which will raise the cost of the job. Ask yourself these questions: Will the paint last longer between paint jobs? Does it resist staining and chipping better than other paints? Will marks on the walls be easier to clean up than with other paints? If the answers to these questions are yes, then it may worth paying the extra cost.

4)      One company charges less for labor because they use painters with less experience, while the other companies charge higher labor for more experienced painters. Decide whether  you value paying more for the experienced painters or paying less for a “green” painter looking to gain more experience.

Ultimately, the value of painting services is based on what you value. The more homework you do up front, the more value you will receive in the end.
