Most homeowners hire a professional paint contractor to manage exterior projects. It can be a time-consuming and tedious job for someone who is inexperienced.
Here are some tips on finding and hiring the right team to get the job done.
Collect Price Estimates From Paint Contractors
This is a time-consuming task, but well worth it. Exterior painting jobs in Denver can cost upwards of $6,000 with some companies, so you want to be sure you’re getting the best price possible.
If possible, seek written estimates from your paint contractor in order to ensure the number on your receipt matches the price you were promised.
Set Your Expectations
There can be a lot of preparation work involved in sprucing up your exterior, and these components will influence the cost of the job. Make sure you discuss your expectations with your paint contractor before settling on a price.
Any number of things can impact the cost of a job.
- Cracks and holes in the exterior that require patching
- Original paint color
- Size of the space
- Number of paint coats
- Time of year
All of these variables can change the amount of work, and thus, the net cost of your home improvement project.
Pro tip: It may be a good idea to request a home visit from your contractor. Once they inspect the home, they can provide a better estimate for you and their team. Meeting the pros before the job begins makes for a more seamless process.
Check Reviews and Past Work
Online reviews are some of the best resources to determine if your contractor is reliable and efficient. Check the company’s website or Google reviews to see how many stars they’ve received from past clients.
Take the extra step to review your contractor’s case studies and portfolio. A portfolio of past work proves the value of the work the team will provide as well as gives you an idea of the kinds of projects they usually handle. For example, commercial painters may have a different skill set than residential painters.
Obtain a Warranty
At Paint Denver, we provide a two-year painting warranty, but not all teams will.
A warrantee ensures satisfaction with every job and promises that your contractor will return to the job site If there are any imperfections or problems. Again, exterior painting can be a costly investment and you want to make sure you get the result you’re paying for.
