Best Questions to Ask a Painter Contractor
What guarantees and/or warranties can you give me? Are you a warranty agent for any brands?
These first two questions should only relate to services or good purchased directly from the service provider. Many products carry their own warranties, like roofing shingles or siding. It's useful to know what these warranties cover as well as how long they last. The "warranty agent" question is important, because often warranty agents work with the manufacturer to get you repairs under warranty at a much lower price.
How many contractors do you have working for you? How many vehicles are in your fleet?
This is important mostly for larger jobs. Clearly a two man operation is going to build a home much slower than a 15 man crew. This is also a good indication of the overall size of the Painting company, if that's an area of concern for you. The reason you may want to ask about the fleet is that fleet size is a good indicator of the mobility of the company. Mobility may not sound important, but it's hard for the Buford contractors to get to job sites if they lack appropriate vehicles.
Do you have any references that I can contact?
Always ask for references, and always check them. Keep in mind though that the only references you'll get are people who the contractor is certain will give him a good review. You'd also be well advised to check online review sources in Buford as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
Are you insured and/or bonded for Painting?
You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Georgia, because that means that any incidental damage they may do on your property will be a real hassle to recover compensation for. It is never wise to work with uninsured tradesmen of any kind. Most states also require that someone have insurance in order to be issued a trade license. If they say they're licensed but not insured, they're being less than truthful.
