House painters have the ability to transform your living space into a beautiful retreat. But, at the same time, they can also turn your home into a chaotic mess of undecorated walls and half-empty paint cans. Here’s what you need to know to get the best service from your house painters.


5 Important Questions to Ask Your Local House Painters


1 How will my home be prepared for the project?

 It is important to understand how the painters will prepare your house for painting and what they expect of you to ensure the success of the project. Here are some of the questions to ask:

  • Will they move furniture and cover the work area?
  • Do they know exactly how to prepare your surfaces for paint application?
  • Do you need to prepare your house and family in specific ways?


Your contractor should be able to provide information that will help you to not only give them proper access to finish the project on time but that will also help to keep your family (including children and pets) from hampering the progress of the work.


2 What does the project consist of?

 Setting out clear parameters for the project is an important part of the process, and it will help avoid any miscommunications. So ask your contractor to specify the following:

  • Which areas will be painted
  • What materials will be used for each area


They should also be able to indicate:

  • How many staff members will have access
  • Who will be cleaning up after the project concludes
  • How long the project should take


3 What are the costs involved?

 To keep in line with your budget, you will need to get an estimation from the contractor for the materials (with the specific grade or quality of paint that will be used) and any other costs that will be charged during the project. You should ask the contractor to provide you with information on the best type of paint for the specific areas and for alternatives if the material is not within your budget.


4 Do you have references?

 If you are working with a reliable contractor they should be able to provide you with references that you can contact to verify the quality of their workmanship and level of service they provide.


5 Do you offer a warranty?

 It is also important to ask your contractor if they offer a warranty on the work delivered and for how long it will be valid. Ask specifically about instances that may nullify the warranty to avoid any potential issues when/if damage occurs.
