Calgary Painters - Choosing The
Best Calgary House Painter
5 Factors To Consider When Hiring Calgary Painters
#1 – Before you even begin contacting Calgary painters, you should know the size and scope of the work you want them to do. If you’re painting or redesigning the entire interior of your house, you’re going to need a larger crew to come by. But if you’re only planning on having some of the walls changed colour, a single-operator might be right for you. Determine the scope of your work so you can know which Calgary painters and renovation agencies will be able to meet your needs.
#2 – Now you’re ready to start calling contractors. The first question you’ll want to ask is if they have a business license. Calgary painters without a business license leave you no recourse if they take off with your money. A business license also ensures that your contractor is beholden to certain standards of business practice, and will likely do a more professional job.
#3 – Next you’ll want to ask after insurance. A good contractor will have insurance to prevent both themselves and their customers from being open to costs from damages.
#4 – Get your contractor to provide you with a list of references. Once you’ve got references you’ll be able to ask them plenty of questions and ensure they’re legitimate. Another way to research a potential contractor is to go online and check if there are customer reviews. Another measure you can take is contacting the Better Business Bureau or your local Chamber of Commerce to see if there are any complaints with your contractor.
#5 – Lastly, make sure your contractor isn’t asking for too much up front. A legitimate contractor will only need 10-15% for materials. Contractors that ask for the bulk of their estimate upfront might be operating an illegitimate business. However if everything else checks out, let your better judgement guide you through the last part of the transaction.
