So, you simply got several bids to repaint your house and you find that the costs are throughout the map. Some costs are even half that of others! What gives?

When hiring a company, it is common to encounter a confusing disparity of prices, and it might be there are true bargains to be found, but more frequently than not, really low prices mean suprisingly low value. So, evaluate all bids carefully, but scrutinize carefully those who are suspiciously low.



With that in mind, let's look at a nearly fool-proof method of hiring the most effective contractor:

1. References. Require them and utilize them! Make a set of questions and follow-up with one of these references; ask questions and listen carefully to the answers, they will be very revealing. Next, be in your car, and visit one or more recently completed project to inspect the contractor's finish work. If you learn paint spattered on the plants, disqualify the bidder.

2. Reputation. Talk with the area paint store and ask about reputability of the contractors bidding on your own project. If a contractor is well established they'll be well-known at their local paint store.

3. Appearances. Judge them - you're hiring an expert whose business is always to pay attention to details, so details matter, a lot. A company who doesn't make your time and effort to produce an excellent impression is unlikely to create results which make an excellent impression.

4. Communication. This really is so very important. A specialist contractor should communicate effectively and respectfully; proposals should be well detailed and include a step-by-step description of labor and a listing of all products that will be used on your project.

If a company hands you a proposal that skips over key details, they either don't want to include them or do not focus on details. Either way, a proposal to lacks details promises to supply less.



Be smart, get educated, and do your due diligence. Choose the most effective contractor you can afford, one who has good references, a great reputation, makes your time and painter tsawwassen effort to make a good impression and communicates well. You will undoubtedly be trusting them with your hard earned money and property, so choose well.
