Adding a fresh coat of paint is a great way to liven up your spaces and protect surfaces from premature deterioration.  Whether you are painting a new building for the first time or repainting an old building, hire a painter in Sonoma County for the job.

There is no shortage of painters in our county. With so many options, it’s easy for a business owner to get overwhelmed and choose the wrong painter for their project. This could prove to be a costly mistake. An amateur is highly likely to make a mistake that can negatively affect paint performance and cut short its service life.

To help you make an informed decision, we have compiled a list of things to consider when hiring a painter.


Look for a professional who has experience managing projects similar to yours. Check if the contractor you are considering has specialized tools and equipment for the job.

Insurance and Licensing

Hiring a licensed contractor is not a guarantee that your project will be delivered on-time and on-budget. However, you can expect a licensed professional to provide standardized services.

Before hiring a painter, check their license to see if it is valid. If something’s amiss, do not hesitate to check the business with the local licensing authority.

Make sure the provider you are considering carries liability insurance. If you hire a painter that does not have liability insurance and someone on their team gets injured while working on your property, you may be held liable for damages.

Communication Skills

Every year so many painting projects get derailed or fail because the project owner and the painter were not on the same page or the painter did not understand the business owner’s vision properly and results fell short of expectations.

Look for an expert communicator with good listening skills. Someone who can ensure seamless communication. You will want to hire a professional who can effectively understand your needs, preferences, expectations and concerns and deliver an end product that ticks all the right boxes for you.


Before hiring a professional for your painting project, do your homework. Research them online to see what people are talking about them. Visit reputable review sites such as BBB reviews and Yelp to check online reviews. Visit their social media profiles and check comments on their posts.

If a friend or family member had hired them in the past, ask them about their experience working with the contractor and if they’d hire the professional for future projects.
