Have you decided to renovate your home or your business but you're on a budget? Painting is the best and the most cost-effective way to make your home or business looking fresh and brand new. It takes the best painting contractors in Danville to achieve the most satisfying paint job.

Hiring the best painters in your area might be a little overwhelming because you are faced with hundreds of painting contractors, and that's understandable. But in order to make a process a little easier and less of a burden, you have to come up with the right questions that will get you the right information about the painting contractors you're interested to hire.

1. “Do you have the right experience?”

One of the things that most clients are looking for in a painting contractor is their experience. Not just experience, but the right experience. If you have specific jobs that you want to be done at present and in the future, then you should pick a contractor that will be able to handle such types of jobs. The best way to ask contractors is that how much experience they have in either commercial or residential painting or both. You should also ask them for a few examples of the homes and/or businesses that they have worked on in the past. For instance, if you own an apartment complex, make sure that they have handled jobs of roughly the same size and scope sometime before.

2. “Do you have insurance?”

This is one of the questions that you should never forget asking. Painting can be a dangerous job, especially when it involves working with heights as well as inhaling noxious paints, varnishes, primers, and other coatings. There can be a high risk involved and there is a possibility of accidents that can affect all involved – the painters, yourself as a client and your property. That's why it is important for a painter to have insurance coverage as a protection in case of emergencies. Ask contractors for proofs of both liability insurance and worker's compensation insurance. If you hire a contractor that is not insured, you could be held liable for the injuries that can happen to their employees while working in your space, and you cannot be compensated when a painter damages or steals your property.

3. “Do you provide references?”

Aside from relying on reviews from the Internet, you should also ask references from the contractors that you're interested to hire. Reputable and professional contractors are confident in their work and so they are ready to provide you with positive feedback from clients they have worked for before. When you contact their previous clients, who are satisfied with their work, they will be even happy to recommend the contractors to you.

If the contractors can’t provide you the references or refuse to do so, then you should look somewhere else.

4. “Can you provide a complete estimate?”

Any reputable and professional contractor is ready to provide you a complete and accurate estimate. If they can’t provide you an estimate or if they refuse to do so, then you should look for another option. Estimates are important because they allow you to assess the project thoroughly – the scope and timeline as well as costs for paints, materials, and labor – and to determine if the project will fit your budget.

When painting contractors can give you satisfactory answers, that will enable you to narrow down your list of the ones that you want to work with. The process has become much easier by then, and you will end up hiring the best painting contractors in Danville who will provide you the most satisfying painting job that will make your property look good for many years to come.
