Do You Know Who You’re Hiring?
When you choose a service company or contractor for a job, many homeowners will make their decision based on criteria such as price quotes, referrals, specials/discounts, or availability. For starters, at least, those are reasonable factors to consider. But, do they tell you enough about the people you’re hiring?
If you are taking bids on a painting project for your home, you will be hiring a business that will have access to your home as well as the responsibility to paint it. Before making any decisions, you should have all the information you need to make an informed choice that you won’t regret later.
With a project the size of a professional house painting, there is always the potential for things to go wrong, or complications to arise. Knowing before the work begins how those issues will be handled can save you a lot of grief down the road. You should have a clear understanding of who you are hiring, how they will approach the job, and what you can expect from them throughout the project and after the work is done.
5 Questions You Should Ask Your Painting Company
- Do you hire your own painters or do you subcontract the work?
Contractors will often subcontract work to reduce their overhead. By subbing out the work, they can avoid the cost of insurance, vehicle maintenance, and can pay a flat rate for another outfit to do the actual work.
The painting crew you hire to paint your house should have the experience and qualifications to do the job. Those attributes can only be guaranteed by the company you hire if they do their own hiring.
You should know who will be showing up at your house each day during the project and how they were hired, which leads us to the next question you should be asking…
- Do you perform background checks on your employees?
You can never be too careful about who you hire. Remember, these are people who will be coming into your home and working around your property throughout the painting project. A reputable professional painting company will take that extra step of screening its new hires to ensure their workers are trustworthy and safe.
- Are you and your employees insured?
Whether it’s an accidental injury to a worker or damage to your property, you should know if the company you hire has the necessary coverage. Employees should have workers’ compensation that will cover employees for accidents. The business should have adequate insurance to cover any damage to your property.
- How do you handle any structural defects that you find?
There’s always the chance that an area of your home may need more than just a fresh coat of paint. Something that had previously gone undetected, and is discovered during the painting job. Does your contractor have personnel on staff who can correct the problem so that the work can be completed properly?
- Do you have Better Business Bureau accreditation?
Accreditation with the BBB tells you that the company you hired maintains high standards, including customer complaint resolution. This is important because you want to know that if there’s a snag or problem with the work, you know you’re dealing with a reputable business that will do what needs to be done to meet your satisfaction.
