We all know the old saying in Realestate, it's location,location,location!
After years of being self-employed I've seen lot's of people come and go in any given industry, and that applies to the painting industry.
My point is with the advent of technology, 'anybody' can now an post ad on an internet billboard and be up and running as a business. I'm not saying there are not some great people behind those businesses, but much of the time there intent is just to make a little money and move on. That being said, I think most customers are at-least looking for accountability and good work from there paint contractor. One of the easiest way to pick through the weeds and find a great match for you is to verify that the business is local. If the business doesn't have a website and can't be found on a google search in your local area, you could be asking for trouble. Look for past reviews of the company and read them. Of course nobody's perfect, but has the company replied to a 'bad review' in a timely matter. Misunderstandings do happen between client and business quite often. That's why it's important to set expectations early on in the estimate phase. Make sure your getting an 'estimate' and it covers all the areas discussed with your house painter. Make sure the price you have agreed is iron clad, the last thing you need is any surprises. In conclusion when you verify a paint company on-line and read there reviews, and most importantly, 'location' your less likely to run into problems. A paint contractor like any other service business is less likely to want negative criticism when they can be held accountable especially in there own back yard. Common sense still makes for better business. And don't forget not everybody rolls equally, don't hesitate to call us for all your painting needs.
