Choosing the Right Painting Contractor

Choosing the Right Painting Contractor

Selecting the right painting contractor can be tricky business—especially if you haven’t worked with one before—but so can painting your own kitchen cabinets. There are numerous Northern New Jersey painting businesses, so how do you choose the right one? We’ve provided some helpful tips on how to weed out the low quality painters and hone in on the one perfect for you:

Read Reviews and Listen to Recommendations

You can easily find reviews about a particular painting contractor on the internet. If a company has overall good reviews, they’ll likely do a good job for you. A bad review here and there isn’t a cause for alarm. But numerous bad reviews should make you wary, especially if multiple people discuss the same problem like unprofessionalism or project delays. Also, rely on your friends for recommendations. You probably already know someone who’s had to hire a painting company, and that person can be a good source of information.

Check Out the Company’s Website

A painting company’s website can often serve as a gauge for the quality of work they do. It’s easy to put up a cheap website. But if a company has invested in creating a website that’s easy-to-navigate and nice looking, it shows that they care about their projects. They want all of their work to be professional, whether it’s a painting project or their website. Go with painting businesses that will go the extra, and not ones that cut corners.

Look At Their Portfolio

A good painting company should have lots of examples of their work on their website. If a portfolio is not available, it could be a warning sign that they haven’t done enough jobs or the quality just isn’t there. Our portfolio is extremely visible on our website and features a wide range of projects.

While you are looking through the portfolio, see if you can find examples of previous jobs the company has done that matches the type of work you want. For instance, if you are considering painting your kitchen cabinets, search for photos that show the painters have done that type of project before.

Are they Insured and Licensed?

A painting company that’s serious about their work will have the proper insurance and licenses. A fully licensed painting company indicates that they met certain requirements, making them more reputable and giving you more peace of mind. If it’s not indicated on their website, reach out to the company and ask about their status. At Spectrum Painting, we are a full licensed and insured painting company and carry the state-mandated levels of liability and workers' compensation insurance—indicated prominently on our website.

People happy with our services

I have used Spectrum for almost 20 years, most recently for a carpentry project. The outcomes of all my jobs have been nothing other than excellent. The staff is the best part of Spectrum. Regardless of the job or who shows up, they are all friendly, courteous, listen to your needs and answer all questions willingly. They always confirm the job requirements and expectations before they start to make sure their expectations are in synch with ours. I have and will continue to recommend Spectrum to my friends.

Spectrum did a fabulous job. The team was excellent, professional, and thoroughly cleaned up when finished. I hired Spectrum to paint inside my garage & install a concrete coating floor. They also installed concrete coating by my outdoor entrance. Spectrum did a fabulous job. The team was excellent, professional, and thoroughly cleaned up when finished.

We hired Spectrum to paint, wallpaper, remove wallpaper, build a closet, remove popcorn ceilings, and other related jobs that came up. Each day I was greeted with a smile and handshake from the crew leader and his team. At the end of the day, their enthusiasm was as strong as it was in the morning. Just an amazing group of dedicated, hardworking people. They finished our condo in record time, covered our floors and furniture, what little we had. I am sorry that we have to stop at 5 stars. They deserve at least double that number! We moved into a condo and they were careful also about the common areas, putting down tarps and board to keep the dust off the rugs and not track onto the carpet. The building staff was so appreciative!

Had spectrum paint our new addition inside and out and the rest of our first floor. They really did a great job. They were very professional and all of the painters took pride in their work. They showed up pleasant and left at the end of each day with a smile. They cleaned up like they weren't even there. I would highly recommend them.

Spectrum Painting was recommended to us by our fence company when we recently installed a picket fence. They did a great job. They arrived punctually, were highly professional and make sure that the job was done properly. I would definitely recommend them and use them again!
