First and foremost, it’s important to look for a San Diego house painting company that is licensed, bonded, and insured. Hiring a licensed and bonded company gives you some recourse if the job isn’t completed, and using a company with insurance means that if anyone is injured, or if any damage is done to your property, you are not liable for the associated costs. You can check the status of a company by visiting the Contractors State License Board’s website. You can also find out how long a company has been in business on that same website.
Second, you want to find out who will be doing the actual painting at your home. Are they employees of the company or subcontractors? Have they been trained in proper house painting methods and in how to property protect your floors, furnishings, and landscaping? These are questions you definitely want to know the answers to before you hire a San Diego house painting company!
Third, ask about what type of paint they use. Some painting companies will try to save on costs by using lower-quality paint. Make sure you ask what type of paint will be used for your project and then do some research on its quality. If it’s important that low or no-VOC paint be used in your home, ask if they offer that option.
Of course, you’ll also want to compare prices among several painting companies, but don’t let price be the only determining factor in which company you choose. It’s important to take things like experience, quality, and reputation into consideration. As the saying goes, “Cheap work is never good, and good work is never cheap.”
