How to Choose a Painting Contractor

Jun 25, 2012

Over the last thirty years Three Brothers Painting has been in business, we’ve seen many painting companies come and go in the Atlanta area. Our company began with a crew of only five people, and have since grown to over 80 employees. We believe that growth is because we don’t use sub-contractors for our jobs, and insist on training and supervising our current employees for safety, quality and knowledge of new skills and products. If you’re currently looking for a painting contractor, here are some helpful hints about choosing a trustworthy company.

Is the Contractor Insured? Always request to see a copy of your contractor’s insurance certificate. Be wary of companies who charge considerably lower than their competitors. They may not carry liability or workman’s comp, and thus, do not have to incorporate that into their prices. You always want to make sure you are protected in the event of an accident in your home. Three Brothers Painting interior room

Request References: A contractor should be willing to provide you references of recent jobs and of past jobs so you can see how their work has aged. You may want to request references in your area so you can see the work for yourself. Often, a homeowner will be so proud of their home’s new look that they will be more than willing to show it off.

Stability: Check the company’s history and how long they’ve been in business. This will help ensure  the company will be around for years to come in the event that touch ups or anything that may arise can be addressed in your home. The length of time a painting contractor has been in business can also say a lot about their quality of work.

Be Wary of Upfront Fees: A reputable contractor shouldn’t have to use your money to buy materials to start your job. Keep in mind that there are cases where homeowners are swindled out of that initial payment, never to hear from their contractor again. We stress to research the contractor’s history and methods to ensure you are making an informed decision when choosing somebody to work on your biggest investment.

At Three Brothers Painting, we believe in completing a great quality job first. If you’re interested in painting the interior or exterior of your home, don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule an appointment!
