What Can I Expect When I Hire a Professional House Painter?

Every fine restaurant has individual characteristics that set it apart from others; nevertheless, there is a standard of service that you can expect to be consistent from one excellent restaurant to another. A similar concept is true of house painters. While each company varies slightly in its procedures and emphases, any excellent house painting contractor will provide you with certain standards of quality.

Reliable Communication

If you have ever tried to work with an uncommunicative contractor, you know the frustration that ensues. However, a true professional emphasizes communication. This means they ask you the right questions to understand your expectations, and they communicate this to everyone who is involved in your project.

Additionally, a great painting company will tell you clearly what days they will be coming, and what times they will be arriving and leaving, so you know what to expect and what arrangements to make.

Excellent Care for Your Home

There are various ways a thoughtful house painter will go above and beyond to protect your home. For example, they may wear disposable shoe coverings or lay down clean drop cloths in the areas where they walk, keeping your floors clean and protected.

Another aspect of caring for your home is keeping a tidy work environment. While a paint job will require some tools and equipment to be spread out, it will be kept safe and orderly. At the end of each day, the site will be cleaned up to avoid inconvenience to you.

One way you can help your painter is if there is a small area where some tools and equipment can be tidily stored in the home overnight. That reduces the cleanup and setup time each day, allowing your painters to be more efficient in his or her work. However, if you would prefer not to have anything left in the home during non-work hours, a professional painter respects that.

Responsiveness to Your Concerns

As your project progresses, if you have questions about safety or concerns about how the project is turning out, an excellent house painter is always ready to address them with you thoroughly. There is flexibility for changes in the plan, and a willingness to go back to parts of the project that don’t meet your desires

Even after a house painting project is complete, a reputable painting company stands behind their work with a warranty, giving you peace of mind regarding your painting investment.

Customer Reviews

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

— Beth Marx & Melissa Kirsch

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”
