Before you hire a painting company to complete any painting project on your home or business, you should take some time to research the company you are hiring.
Checking reviews and asking for references are all important to ensure you find a reputable, reliable painter for your project. However, it is not only about the quality of work they will provide. You also need to know more about the people that will be spending a few days or more working on your property.
Hiring practices at painting companies can be very different from one another. Before you hire a painting contractor to paint your home or office, take the time to ask about their salesman about the employees who will be on your property, to find out more about the people who could be working around your family and on your property. Here are some questions to ask your potential home painter.
Are Your Workers Employees or Subcontractors?
There is a big difference between an employee of the company and subcontractor, especially when it comes to liability. Subcontractors are not covered by the company you hired insurance. Which means if they do not have their own insurance, and they are injured or cause damage to your property, you may be liable, not the painting contractor. You want to make sure the company you hire has workers who are employed by the company because sometimes subcontractors can cut corners and not take as much pride in the job because it’s not their company who will be held liable.
Do You Perform Background Checks?
Unfortunately, there are many home improvement companies that hire employees that could have troubled pasts. You want a painting company that performs thorough background checks on their employees and hires people with integrity. Home painters and contractors that care about the safety and security of their customers will make sure their employees have no criminal backgrounds.
What Type of Training Do You Provide for Your Employees?
Painting is a skill that requires training and practice. Ask your painter what type of training they provide for their employees to ensure they have the skills and techniques needed to provide excellent work. The last thing you need is someone painting your home who is an ametuer.
Will There Be a Project Manager?
Will a crew of employees show up at your home or will they be under the supervision of a project manager? If so, what experience does the project manager have leading a team? Make sure the project manager also speaks english, so you can communicate clearly with him.
