Hiring professionals to paint your home or business is not a daily job. It can feel awkward and awkward if you don’t know what to look for. They are all the same. After all, if a painting company advertises a service somewhere, should they be professional? And if they are all experts, the only difference you can choose is the price. Right?
Only if it’s so easy. In fact, painters and painter contractors are as varied and varied as the choice of meals in an international food court. If so, how can you tell bad people good things? Or, more importantly, is it wrong in what works for you? And before you hire a painter, don’t you like the answers to these questions?
Answers are most often found in the picture estimates you write. Of course, price matters. But that’s an estimate process and a final written estimate that tells you what to expect for your money. In other words, if you know the signs.
7 Warning written picture quotes are giving up against painters
- That much painter quote. Do the details in the picture quote reflect what you want and what the painter wants? You may have told the estimator where you would like a quote, but did you discuss how to prepare it and what material? If you don’t know how to ask, you can fill in the blanks with unexpected shortenings and incomplete finishing.
- That much blanket quote quote. It’s too common to see quotes about paintings where claims are as simple as: Paint all rooms at this address for $XXXX.xx Awesome! Everything in the house will be painted for one low price. complete! But is it? Be careful with the quotes if there are too few details. This makes a great escape route for the painter whenever the painting doesn’t live up to the vision you conceived.
- That much brand paint quote. Using top brand names always looks great in pictorial quotes. You’ve heard the name, so I think there’s a certain credibility associated with the manufacture of a particular paint. And in many cases, you will be right. But do you know that the world’s largest and best paint manufacturers make great paints and paints that don’t? In a nutshell, what does the painting finely estimate during the paint job? Written estimates may be disclosed to the interpretation if not discussed during the evaluation evaluation (usually how the painter’s interpretation affects the wall).
- That much low ball quote. If the price is too good, you can tell the truth. Or at least this phrase will sound familiar. However, when making the final decision on which painter to hire for a project, you can see that great quote when everyone else is "too expensive". Now the feelings go on and you can’t save all your money! But before you sign the painter’s quote, ask yourself: Do you honestly believe that this painter knows that all other contractors give up his work much less? Do you know better about information that others don’t have? The possibilities are small and not worth the risk.
- That much no warranty quote. All the details sound great, but they won’t be provided unless the problem is resolved. You paid for the paint job without a guarantee, now can you afford to revise and repaint the job? And even if you can afford it, do you really want to pay twice and the expected picture result will take twice as long?
- That much non-standard quote. When deciding what makes up a properly painted surface, you need to create a fabrication standard so that you have the same frame of reference as the painter. Otherwise, it is subjective to the eye of the beholder. The painting industry standard, issued by the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA), is used to protect painting customers and painting contractors as needed. It maintains the standards set by the painting industry, judging professionally finished surfaces, defining different levels of preparation, and providing the means of finishing that professional painters must adhere to. Even if you’re not dealing with PDCA members, it’s the painting industry standard and a good contractor will at least let you know if you have any questions about your work.
- That much where is the evidence quote. Picture estimates are read as if a painter took words straight from his mouth and heart. But if other customers with similar painting projects don’t back it up, will they end up making sure they can do what they claim to be? There are many painters and painting contractors competing for your business. You owe yourself to see if you have any mention of removing the expert from the shortcomings.
