Even experienced painters should need more than just a quick walkthrough of your home to get an idea of how much it will cost. ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS

How does the process work?
How much experience do you have with painting?
Do you do the job yourself or use subcontractors?
How big will the crew be?/How many painters will do the work?
Can you provide references?
Do you offer a written guarantee that the job will be done right or redone free of charge?
What type of paint do you use?
What paint type and colors do you recommend? How many coats will it take?
How long will the job take to finish?
When do I have to pay?
Do you clean up the painting mess when the job is finished?
Do I need to do any prep work before painting day?
GET A FEW ESTIMATES
After the inspection painting team reach your home, get written painting services quotation from each painting company. Estimates should be free and no-obligation, meaning you don’t have to hire the company just because they’ve given you a price estimate.
Getting the estimate in writing is key for you want to have a clear picture of what is included in the price: material costs, labor, the brand and type of paint, and a description of the scope of work. Compare your estimates and decide which one is the best for you. Keep in mind that it’s not just about price to look at, how long the job will take, the quality of the work, and the overall vibe you get from the company. LOOK AT PAST WORK
A good painter will usually have a portfolio of work for you to look over during the onsite estimate, either in a printed book or digital format. They may also have examples of recent work on their website or social media feeds so you can really dig in deep. When looking at before and after photos or just photos of completed jobs, take note of the quality of the work. (You shouldn’t be able to see any obvious flaws.)
