At the beginning of the job the painter and estimator will meet together and review all the details as outlined and make sure all the steps necessary are in place to successfully complete your project. The painter will have a complete job description and write up as necessary to finish the project as outlined in the proposal. We will notify after the first day’s work if we need additional clarification or explanation of the details.
Performing the Job
Painting is all about the process. The order and sequence of events is crucial to the success of the project. Surface preparation is the key to a great paint job. We take great pride in ensuring the preparation is followed by the paint manufacturer’s specification and priming is complete before moving along. Owner and field supervisors inspect the work continually to ensure quality is maintained and everything is running smoothly according to plan. If there are changes during the project or items that need to be added, these will be addressed as “changes”.
At the end of the project we will ask you to inspect the work to ensure that nothing was overlooked and take care of any issues, we wish your complete satisfaction. When the job is complete we will ask you to complete a brief survey to get your feedback on the work and process. This survey helps us to continue to improve our painting process and service.
Before you decide to hire a painter, a friend who is handy, or do it yourself, there are some important things to consider. Price and inexperience probably are not the best value. Check out these concerns below and ask if they are capable.
The choices in paint and coatings today are more confusing than ever. Knowing what works, how it should be applied, what to use and do you have the right tools for the job are all valid concerns. Professional Contractors utilize and partner with professional paint, coating and wall finishing suppliers.
We recommend the following paint suppliers:
Getting the surface properly prepared is the key to a great project. As professionals we know what preparation is necessary to have the right results.
Painting can be hazardous work, whether it’s working on a ladder or dealing with dust, paints and solvents. Hiring a professional contractor means you don’t have to worry about these problems.
If your home or office was built before 1978, it may contain lead-based paint. Lead based paints can cause serious health effects when sanded or scraped in preparation for painting. Ask for an EPA Pamphlet, testing is easy and before you disturb your walls and trim, you have a right to know about your health.
Time after time we hear of homeowner complaints about a painter promising to complete an item or part of the offer with the price and then failing to get the project complete on the agreed upon price and time line. Don’t let this be you, demand a written proposal and contract. Clearly explain the scope and nature of the work to be performed. Written proposals separate proper painting practices from those of the one coat, splash and dash painters.
