HOW DO THEY PLAN TO PREPARE THE SURFACE FOR PAINTING?
Proper prep work is the key to a long-lasting paint job. Make sure your contractor has a clear plan for washing, scraping, and sanding the surface.
WILL THEY PRIME BEFORE CAULKING AND PAINTING?
All bare surfaces require a primer; previously painted surfaces usually do not require a primer.
WHAT AREAS ARE THEY PLANNING TO CAULK?
The most common cause of paint failure is due to moisture from water going behind the paint. For that reason caulking all joints, seams, gaps, and cracks in the surface is a must to ensure a tight seal.
WHAT KIND OF PAINT DO THEY PLAN TO USE? WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS?
Good quality paint will be recommended by good painters, you probably don’t need the most expensive product, but don’t cheap out on this either. Make sure the painter can explain the benefits of the paint they are recommending.
Ask For a Quote?
Invite painters to look at the job and ask for a quote in writing or email. In the quote also ask then to specify the time it will take to complete the job. It can be a challenge living in a house that is covered with drape cloths. Make sure the contractors are quoting on the same specifications - areas to be painted, number of coats and so forth.
Execute a Contract
Execute a contract specifying the work to be done, total cost, payment schedule, start date, and estimated completion date. Be sure the contract includes the paint brands and colors to be used in each location, as well as the number of coats. Make sure the contract specifies that the painter is responsible for cleanup and the removal of paint from all surfaces (windows, floors).
