Common Mistakes When Hiring a Residential Painting Contractor

In today’s blog article we are going to discuss hiring a residential painting contractor, and the mistakes people make when hiring a painting contractor. There are definitely some best practices when hiring.


Your first mistake would be choosing a painting contractor with little experience. An experienced painting contractor will have a good idea how long the project will take and how much it will cost. Lack of experience on the part of the contractor can be problematic for both the contractor and client.


Another mistake is not checking the contractor’s references and reputation. The way to know if a contractor can be trusted is through word of mouth, online reviews, and/or seeing examples of previous work. If you hire someone out of the blue with no references or reputation, there is no way to know if the contractor knows what he or she is doing or if he/she will even finish the work.

Listening to the Contractor

A third important mistake would not listening to your contractor. If your contractor tells you that a certain type of paint or colour or technique is not appropriate for a specific application, you would do well to listen to the contractor. Because if you do not listen and the end result is not what you wanted, then that is not the contractor’s fault, and you would have to pay extra to have something redone.
