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.
