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.

We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”
