Hire A Professional Painter For Your Interior Painting

Posted on December 22, 2010 at 9:48 AM
The least expensive house painter that you can find or DIY may not be the best value and safest way to have the interior of your house painted. when making the decision to paint your homes interior going with the local handyman or hiring a professional house painting contractor there are a few things that you should keep in mind.

 1) Safety comes to my mind first and that should be the most important factor for you and your family. Painting can be hazardous work, whether it’s working on a ladder or dealing with solvents and dust. Hiring a professional contractor means that you can have piece of mind. If your home or business was built before 1978, chances are it contains lead-based paint, which can cause serious health effects when it is scraped or sanded in preparation for repainting. Painters and anyone whom will be disturbing the paint are required by federal law to be an EPA Certified Firm and have a certified renovator. A lead certified painting company will take the appropriate steps to protect you, your family, and their painters from the dangers of lead.
 
2) Proper preparation and quality paint will give you a long lasting paint job. Preparing the surfaces properly makes all the difference. A Professional Painting Contractor knows the value of preparation and will do it right.The choices today are more complicated than just oil or latex base coatings and professional house painters know what works, how to use it, and will have the right tools for the job.

3) Hiring a professional painting company means you don’t have to worry about dealing with paint residues and other leftovers. Professionals will know how to handle any hazardous wastes and any other materials that are left over. They will clean up your home at the end of the project and leave your house looking as if they where never there.

4) Always verify the contractor is licensed and insured. Quality contracting firms will be only too happy to provide you with copies of their certificates of insurance. Not all states and municipalities require licensing however business registration with your state and municipality is generally a minimum requirement.

5) A reputable painting contractor will encourage the use of a written contract. This contract should clearly explain the scope of the work to be performed. It should also cover such items as surfaces to be painted, methods and extent of surface preparation, time schedules for the project, and payment procedures. Knowing the total scope of the work enables you to carefully evaluate the different bids you may receive with the proper information and keep them on a level playing field. The contract serves to protect both you and the contractor.

6) Obtain a list of references from the prospective contractor. This list should include the contact person, address, and telephone number of the previous client. Follow up on this list with a phone call. Be sure to ask whether the contractor and employees treated you professionally and with respect. If possible, try to see the work that was done.
 
7) Discuss any guarantee or warranty programs the contractor may offer. Ask about the manufacturer's warranty on the products to be used on your project. Remember you are looking for long-term durability from the paint job. The use of high quality products is as important as the selection and performance of the contractor. Verifying references will provide a return on your project investment.

I agree that trying to do it yourself or hiring cheap is not always the best value. I had a buddy that tried to paint his entire house by himself to save money and he ended up having to get someone to do it for him. I heard that hiring a professional actually tends to save you money in the long run. I believe it after seeing the experience of my friend!

I really like what you said about preparing the wall before you paint it. My husband and I just moved into a new house, and we need to paint. The walls are all really dark colors, and I want to brighten things up. I'll be sure to clean them before hand, so when the painters come, they can start painting right away.

My husband and I have been remodeling our house for a while now, and the time has to come for us to have it painted. Neither of us are very handy with a brush, so it is probably best that we hire a professional to come in and do the job. We were just curious on how to find a great painter. I like how you pointed out that one thing to look for is a painter that will encourage us to have a written contract with them. This way we know what they plan on doing, like the time schedule for the project, which is great to know our timeline on when we can finish our remodel. Thanks for all the advice!

Nice blog to share. I agree with you with this fact that hiring a painting contractor is preferable rather than doing it by yourself. Professional painters are more experienced and know about the different color combinations as well. Keep blogging..

I am interested in repainting my daughter's room now that she's a teenager. I agree that hiring a professional painter will save me from worrying about the paint job. I want the paint to look good in her room without any residues or leftovers like you mentioned, so hiring a professional seems like the best option.

My aunt is looking to paint her home but does not have time due to the activities of her four kids. She is thinking about hiring a professional painting company to get the job done. It is good to know that by hiring the project done, my aunt will not have to worry about having to deal with paint residues and other leftovers. I will be sure to inform her. Thanks.

You make a really good point about proper preparation in the article and how it can lead to longer lasting paint. This really is one of the biggest reasons to hire a professional painting contractor to paint the inside of your home. After all, a professional will know how to exactly prepare your paint in order to make sure that it lasts as long as it can.
