Painting Contractors Denver

There are a lot of painting contractors in Denver and the state of Colorado. As a potential customer you have many choices. The following is an 11 point guide line to choosing your contractor. This helpful article can be applied to almost any type of project. From commercial to residential, and interior to exterior. The following is industry straight talk from a Denver veteran of the painting business.

When embarking on any project, please consider the following.

  1. Always get 3 quotes from 3 separate contractors. Even if it is inconvenient and you have to schedule them on top of each other, this is vital. You will never regret the time you invest in getting informed and educated.

  2. Listen to every potential contractor. You can learn a lot about what you will receive simply by how the contractor speaks, listens and responds. If you don't get a good feeling about him, chances are that feeling will not go away throughout the course of your project.

  3. If they are late or do not call... do not hire them. The service you see at the beginning is most likely how the relationship will end.

  4. Ask lots of questions. This is the perfect time for you to learn about your project and the one who is performing the work.

  5. Always have a contract, read it and sign it. If you don't know where to get one or you don't have one... Google it. A good lawyer once told me that something is better than nothing! Get it in writing and on that CONTRACT! Remember that the palest ink is better than the sharpest memory!

  6. Pick your favorite contractor and call his references. I have never met a person that regretted doing this, but I have met plenty of people who have regretted not doing this!

  7. Remember that initial price should never be your deciding factor. Low bidder and best bidder are two different things. I have seen too many good people pick the low guy only to find out that he did not include something as simple as paint!

  8. Ask for a copy of his insurance policy If he has one it should be no problem. If he does not have one tell him to leave. As soon as he steps foot on your project you could be liable for any thing that happens. I have seen a $150,000 claim for a painter who tripped over a customer's curb.

  9. Inspect what you expect! Always inspect the work at the end of the project. It generally takes less than 30 minutes to review a job and I guarantee you will find something to touch-up or fix. This is time well spent!

  10. If the contractor offers a guarantee... GET IT IN WRITING!

  11. Do what you say you are going to do, when you say you're going to do it! Insist that your contractor do the same. Honesty and integrity are vital.

I feel so lucky to have met Roger, and am incredibly excited for him to begin work on the exterior painting of my house.
