Here’s another factor to consider that has a huge impact on the success of your project: your painter’s vendor relationships.
Why Do Vendor Relationships Matter?
#1: Local Longevity
First, a strong relationship speaks volumes about your prospective painting company as a whole. Who do they work with, and are they locally vested? In other words, do they have strong roots with a successful track record? Relationships take time, so a proven partnership between a contractor and reputable vendors can instill a lot of confidence in the quality of their work.
#2: Access To Tools and Resources
A contractor with strong vendor relationships also has access to that vendor’s tools and resources. This might include specialized products for very specific applications (more on that below), color selection tools, rendering software, and more. In other words, you’ll enjoy exclusive access to these perks through your painter.
#3: Successful Product Selection
Part of a successful painting project is considering every variable, and your property’s unique needs. Your painting contractor should know who to call, and which vendor might be the best fit for you. A representative will then come out and help determine which product will perform the best, right down to ideal specifications for peak performance. It’s a science as much as an art, and close collaboration makes all the difference.
It all comes down to asking the right questions! As you meet with painters, don’t be afraid to ask who they work with and why. It’ll provide a lot of insight into their relationships, industry knowledge, and how much support you can expect every step of the way.
