How to Avoid Bad Painting Contractors

The best way to ensure that you do not get a bad painting contractor is not to hire a bad one in the first place. To do that, there are a number of steps that you need to take and some homework you must do. The first thing you should do is gather the names of some painting contractors from those who have recently had work done in their homes. Then, take those names and go online. You should take the time to look over the website for each company. Be sure to check to see that they are licensed and insured. The next step is to check the Better Business Bureau to see how they stand. You should also look for reviews on social media sites like Yelp and Facebook.

Once you have narrowed your selection down to three or four painting contractors, call each and ask for an estimate on the work to be done. Do not accept any quotes over the phone. Be sure to ask whether the company has a crew or will be using subcontractors. You should also ask if you need to supply the paint or if it is included in the cost. Then, go for the painting contractor you feel the most comfortable with. However, be careful if you choose the lowest bid as you tend to get what you pay for. Finally, do not pay in full until the job is completed to your satisfaction.

How to Deal with Bad Painting Contractors

If you take all of these steps and still end up hating the job that your painting contractor does at your home, there are a number of things you can do to try and rectify the situation. First, calmly discuss the situation with the representative. If you get nowhere talking to the company, then be sure to document everything. Read and reread your contract and take plenty of pictures to record the issues. Then, fire the painting contractor, kick yourself for not hiring Ordonez Construction Inc. in the first place and call us to fix the job. We will not let you down. Once the job is complete to your satisfaction, you can then take the original contractor to small claims court to recoup your costs.
