The most important questions to ask:
:: Always ask for references
:: Obtain a bid
:: Ask for a warranty
:: Ask what brand of paint will be used
Also ask about:
:: Length of time to complete the job
:: What will be done for cleanup
:: And, ask if the painter is insured
Keep your search local. Ideally it's best to find a painter who lives and has references nearby. Mr. Epps did a great job in outlining questions you should ask a prospective painter. However, I suggest that you make sure that the quote they offer is always for TWO coats of paint. Single coats usually don't last very long. Best of luck.
He's painted 2 rental unit interiors, 1 flip interior/exterior, and the exterior of our home in Louisville,
I've referred him to friends and clients and others appreciate his quality and price.
Good questions to ask are things like:
-How long have you been in business?
-May I have addresses of recent work you've done?
-Will you plan on rolling the paint or spraying?
-What brand of paint will you use?
-Will you do one or two coats?
-What kind of pre painting prep work will you do?
-Will your crew stay on the job from beginning to end without leaving for another job?
-Why should I choose you over another painter?
If he isn't forthcoming on both issues, forget it.
I'd particularly want to see work done at least a couple of years ago to see how it has held up.
