There are dozens of different painting companies around town, and most probably seem pretty similar at first glance. They all appear to offer the same services at almost the same rates. Unfortunately, that doesn’t necessarily mean each of them is a quality painting company in Vacaville, CA. The old adage “talk is cheap” applies to almost every business—especially in the painting industry.
It’s easy for painting companies to say they offer a particular service at a specific price. But as the customer, how can you be sure the company’s services will be delivered at the quoted rate? More importantly, will the painters do a quality job and complete the project on time? It’s tough to say. Thankfully, there are a few questions you can ask a painting company before you agree to let them paint the interior or exterior of your home.
Do you offer a warranty on your work?
While each painting company probably says they guarantee a quality job, it’s tough to determine whether or not that’s true. Guaranteeing quality without also backing that claim up with a warranty is nonsense. At Pro-Tech Painting & Decorating, LLC, all of our exterior services come with a 10-year warranty. You can sleep well knowing that we guarantee quality, or you’ll get your money back!
Do you have insurance?
There are two types of insurance each painting company in Vacaville, CA needs: comprehensive business liability and workers’ compensation. Comprehensive business liability protects your property from damage caused by a painter. If something terrible goes wrong during a painting job and your house is damaged, this type of insurance ensures you don’t end up paying for a mistake. While painting isn’t the most dangerous industry, accidents can occur. Falls from ladders and other high places aren’t common, but they do happen, and painters can get injured. Luckily, workers’ compensation covers you from paying a painter’s medical bills if he gets hurt on your property. We’re fully insured, so don’t worry about paying for any of our mistakes!
Do you have your own crew or do you hire subcontractors?
Painting companies, especially the less reputable ones, may be tempted to hire subcontractors to do jobs instead of hiring their own crew. Subcontractors are paid a fixed fee by the painting company, so they might end up cutting corners to get the job done as quickly as possible. Since they’re not actual employees, a company might not provide workers’ compensation. That’s not good! An employer might also not perform background checks on his subcontractors, so you never know who might be in your home.
What other services do you offer?
We believe a painting company in Vacaville, CA should be able to do more than just paint the walls of your home. That’s why we offer an array of services to best suit our customers’ needs. In addition to interior and exterior painting, we provide a variety of home improvement services, like dry rot repairs, waterproofing, door replacements and siding replacements.
