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.

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.

Spectrum Painting just completed an interior paint job in my new home and I could not be any happier with the results! From the very first contact, the team at Spectrum Painting was very friendly and professional. I received an estimate very quickly and had the job scheduled and completed in no time to at all. The team arrived right on time, explained the process to me, and took a great deal of care in covering my property to be sure it was not damaged in the process. The job was completed in one day and there was virtually no mess left behind. I would recommend Spectrum to anyone in need of a paint job and will be sure to use them again for my next project!

From the moment Rich and I started our conversations, I knew Spectrum was different, anyone can "talk" about trust and excellence....then I met our crew…. (Hector, Marci, CJ, Ryan, Oldemar) Each of you with your individual and collective contribution treated our home with the utmost of care. Taking time to ensure that we were satisfied with the work throughout the entire job, working through all the timing with the floors, making recommendations that would enhance the rooms– absolutely love the crown molding - and being courteous and professional. Thank you for making our vision even better....until our next adventure.

We had Spectrum Painting power wash and paint the outside of our house. They did such a fantastic job that we tripled the scope of the project during the process and the results are phenomenal. We wound up having them do the siding, window trim, doors, lights and much more. The end results is better then I expected. The entire Spectrum team was amazing throughout the process and on several occasions went above and beyond. I would highly recommend them.

I feel like I have a new Kitchen and would highly recommend them for any Job. Marcin was on time each day, very Professional, Friendly and did a Fabulous Job. Even with Covid the men were very careful, wore masks and closed off my kitchen from the rest of my home. The Price was very reasonable.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Spectrum Painting to do some painting and papering of two rooms. Everyone I worked with was pleasant and professional. Appointments were kept and on time which is huge when you have a busy schedule. The quality of work was excellent! Not only did José and his crew do a great job, but he cleaned up the work area so you couldn't even tell they were there! And, they were done in one day! I will definitely use Spectrum Painting again and would never hesitate to recommend them to anyone. And, their little thank gift was a very nice touch!

Each and every employee is professional, courteous and does meticulous work. The attention to detail is amazing and the care they take in the cleanup process is to be commended. I actually think they left my house cleaner than when they started the work. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give them a 20!!! Completely exceeded my expectations!
