Points to Consider When Hiring a Kennesaw House Painting Contractor
When hiring a local Kennesaw house painter, make sure you are hiring a professional interior or exterior house painter who has had experience with the type of painting you need done. A handyman or “jack-of-all-trades” may be able to handle a very minor painting job, such as painting shutters after he repairs a window, but when you need a large interior or exterior home surface painted, you can only rely on professionals.
To find the professional Kennesaw house painting team you need, start with the internet, read reviews – keep in mind some are fake – and check the Better Business Bureau, then get recommendations from your neighbors, and as well as state and local departments of consumer protection. Make sure that there are no outstanding consumer complaints against the contractor or painter whom you are considering.
Licensed & Insured Kennesaw Painter
Also, be sure to work with only licensed, insured and bonded Kennesaw house painters, especially if the painter must use ladders, spray guns or other potentially hazardous equipment. Most professional house painters are indeed licensed by the state or city in which they operate, carry liability insurance and workman’s comp and most are also bonded. However, be sure to check that all licenses and insurance certificates are indeed up-to-date; any reliable house painter will be only too happy to show you a copy of his license and insurance.
You may want to choose colors yourself, or you may want to use a large Kennesaw painting contractor firm that includes a decorator who will help you choose the colors that are best for your home decor. Make sure that the painter has access to enough paint in the necessary colors to finish the job, especially if he is using custom colors.
All custom colors should be mixed in sufficient quantities for the job before the painter even starts. Mixing additional colors later on may not result in the exact same color and the difference in colors will be very noticeable when the job is finished and the paint has dried.
Surface Prep Necessary for Proper House Painting
Finally, make sure the professional painter properly prepares the surface to be painted. In damp climates, and especially with older homes, this may include cleaning the walls thoroughly to remove any traces of mildew or mold that may have grown on the walls. New outdoor surfaces, such as recently installed shutters or doors, may also need preparation before they are actually painted.
Painting large interior or exterior surfaces requires a true professional Kennesaw house painter. Find an experienced and recommended house painter or painting contractor to insure that your painting work will be completed professionally and will last for as long as possible.
