Choosing a Paint Contractor For Your Frederick Home – What You Need to Know

Hiring a Painting Contractor

When looking for a professional to handle your painting, it can be hard to know which companies you can trust to do a good job. After all, your home is usually your biggest investment and you want to be sure that the job is done well.

Residential paint contractors can make your house painting projects go quickly and smoothly and can give you great results…if you hire the right one. The opposite is also possible, they can  leave you with less than stellar results, charge more than you expected or take longer to complete the project than they should. That’s why it is so important to know what you are getting into before you hire someone.

Check Their Credentials

Good paint contractors should have a license (although some states do not require licensing). You also should ask how long they have been in business and whether or not they have insurance. Maryland licenses are available on the DLLR website.

You can also ask whether they belong to any professional organizations such as your local Chamber of Commerce or any paint-specific associations or organizations. You should be able to get a good idea of how well established they are and how seriously they take their business. Make sure to check out Angie’s List for reviews.
Do They Guarantee Their Work?

Find out if they offer any guarantees or warranties on their work. If they are willing to offer a guarantee then they more than likely do quality work.

Check Out Their Reputation and References

The best way to make sure that a company or individual painter is really qualified and will stand behind their promises before hiring them is to look into their reputation & references. To learn more about residential paint contractors before hiring them, including where to find real customer reviews, who to ask for recommendations, and how to get insight into their past work and experience, there are several sources:

  • Home Advisor
  • Google Places Reviews: Search “Your city residential painters”
  • Yelp
  • Your City website, ours is
  • Better Business Bureau, check for complaints
  • Superpages, Yellowpages, Manta.
