232,080. According to IBIS World, that's the number of painting and decorating businesses in the U.S. So how do you pick the right professional house painter from such a massive pool of service providers? By asking the right questions. Before hiring professional house painters, ask these four questions to help ensure a successful service.
References and samples of previous work can give you the confidence you have the right painters for your project. A professional and experienced painting company will have at least three relevant samples of previous work. They'll likely showcase their past work and testimonials on an online portfolio.
A professional painter has intimate knowledge of painting materials in the market and their impact on durability and finish. By asking the type of materials they use, you can assess the quality of their work. A knowledgeable professional knows what materials are most suitable for different surfaces. They also know which materials offer the best adhesion, resistance to wear and tear, and color retention.
Painting can significantly impact indoor quality depending on the painter's materials. Professional house painters will always take precautions to reduce this impact. For example, they can use paints with low volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They may also seal areas they are painting and ensure sufficient ventilation.
A professional painting team with experience with many projects has already established how long it typically takes for the painting process to be over. Asking for a time estimate can help you make arrangements for your family to ensure a seamless painting experience. A professional painting company will give you an estimate after considering your unique factors so they can be transparent and set reasonable expectations for you as a client.
