Tips to Finding a Good Painter

by

Renovating your home is not only about building new structures and giving our home a makeover. It includes a good paint job which makes a whole lot of difference in your space. When renovating, besides choosing the right colour or shade for your walls, you need a person who can ensure that they are properly applied. As such, you should find a painter who is up for the job and like any other experts in renovation, not EVERYONE who holds a brush can do it. Make a mental note on the following qualities when you are selecting your painter.

Experience Matters

– A good paint job can only be accomplished by someone who has many years of experience under his belt. Look for someone who has been doing this for many years (decades even). In painting, you are not looking for strength, but experience.

Track Record

– If possible, get recommendations from your friends or families because the good painters are usually found through word-of-mouth. They will rarely advertise because it is additional cost for them.

Painting Surfaces

– When speaking to the painter, you will be able to tell if he is able to work on any surfaces using different types of paints. Some painters are experts on wood but can be quite hopeless when it comes to metal surfaces. You need to check with the painter if he is comfortable with working on every type of surface you have in your new home.

Right Approach

– Ultimately, you should find a painter who is friendly and approachable. Signs can be seen from the start where you will notice how helpful the painter can be. Responsible painters will try to save paint for you by not using too much at places that cannot be seen. Get a quotation first, then decide on the cheapest and most value-for-money. Be prepared to say no if the situation arises.
