4 Questions to Ask your Painting Contractor

Hiring a professional painting contractor is an important decision when you consider that they will be performing work on what is likely your biggest life investment. Also worth mentioning is the fact that they will spend several days around your home and your family, so it’s important to find a contractor you can trust. Here are four questions to ask your painting contractor in Vancouver.

1. Do you subcontract any of your work?

This question is important because it is related to the accountability of the painters in your home. A painting company that uses only their own in-house painters has direct control over the hiring and training of their staff and has a continuing relationship with their painters. When a company hires subcontractors, their background and training are no known, and if something goes wrong, the subcontractors could be difficult to hold responsible.

2. What is your hiring process like?

Anyone can claim to be a painter as long as they have a vehicle and some supplies, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anyone should be trusted in your home. A reputable painting company will have a good hiring process including a background check and a painting test. When a company is able to say they have those two methods in place, you can be confident in the trustworthiness of the individuals in your home and their painting skills.

3. What kind of training do you provide your staff?

No one ever truly knows it all and learning is a part of maintaining an individual’s skillset. A reputable painting contractor should provide a program of regular training for both new and existing employees to accommodate for new products and techniques in the industry.

4. Who is the contact person during and after the project?

Organized management is crucial to any painting project. You need to know exactly who will be scheduling and supervising the work within your home, and who you can contact if you have any questions or concerns. In most cases, a reputable painting company will have a crew leader or lead painter on site during working hours that will oversee the daily work and answer any questions you may have.
