Checklist for Hiring Local House Painters: An Angie’s List Guide to Hiring a Painter

Painting is one home improvement task many homeowners can do and do well. However, there are several reasons that it might be a good idea to hire Professional Local House Painters — experience, tools and responsibility.

Professional local house painters have done this before. It’s how they make their living. Through experience, they have learned tricks of the trade and the techniques used to get quality results. They are familiar with the type of paint to use in each situation, know what quality paint is right for each task and know how to achieve a perfectly straight edge – with or without the use of painter’s tape.

A professional paint crew will have the right tools for the job. Quality tools can make a difference in paint application and bear noticeable results. If you are only painting one room or do not plan to paint any additional areas of your home, it might not be wise to invest in tools that will only be used once. Professional local house painters will also have enough drop cloths and other protective equipment to ensure the area is kept clean.

A true professional understands that it is his or her responsibility to provide a quality job for the homeowner. Professionals also know that attention to detail is a part of the job. While a homeowner might leave a bit of paint on the window pane, a dedicated interior painter for hire will make sure that these small details are handled properly, because a perfect job is the best calling card.

The professional local house painters profession is not as tightly regulated as other trades, such as plumbing and electrical jobs. A license or certification is rarely required. Members can search for highly rated painters on Angie’s List and read member reviews of recent services, in addition to other research before hiring.

Don’t be afraid to ask the painter for references or for testimonials from previous clients. These references should give the prospective client a picture of how the work was done, the quality of the painting provided and timeliness for completing the contracted task.

Even so, it might be wise not to take a written letter at face value alone. Contact information should be provided so that you can interview the previous client on the phone or in person. It might be possible to go to the actual site and see the results for yourself.

It’s a good idea to ask about service after completion. For instance, if the homeowner discovers an area that wasn’t painted properly or was missed, they need to know how long after completion they are able to report this and have it corrected at no charge. If damage is discovered, what recourse for remediation is available?

While a license may not be required, the homeowner should only consider a painting company that is insured. The insurance should cover any injuries suffered by employees on the job, as well as injuries that might be suffered by the homeowners and their family members as a result of sloppy workmanship.
