How to pick a contractor using a referral service for your Florida paint project

It’s important to pick the right contractor for the job when you’re painting your home because there’s more to painting than sprucing up the color. You’re going to want somebody who’s skilled at what they do and understands the importance of doing a great job. At UCI Paints, we take hiring a painter seriously so we offer a contractor referral service in Florida to help our neighbors find the right person for the job. If you’re not sure how to pick the right contractor for your project, keep reading as we have five things you should make sure you do when hiring painters.

Hire local

Local paint contractors have a strong understanding of how important it is to protect your home from the humid climate of South Florida. The intense humidity of the region can make it difficult for your home to stay free of mold, mildew, and moss. However, you can protect your home from these damaging organisms, which could save you thousands of dollars in repairs in the future.

Ask for previous work

When you’re searching for a contractor, you’re going to want to see what they’ve done in the past. Ask contractors for examples of their previous work so you can properly vet them. Those who are confident in their abilities and the work they’ve done will happily provide you with photos of jobs they’ve done so you can see the quality of their craft. This allows you to get a better idea of what the finished product will look like.

Ask for references

Every contractor you talk to will probably tell you that they’re the best at what they do. You can decide for yourself who is truly the best for your paint project. Ask for references so you’re able to get an outside opinion about why they’re the contractor you’re looking for. Previous customers will be open and honest with you about what they did and didn’t like about working with specific painters so you can make an educated decision for yourself.

Get estimates

There’s a balance between how much a service costs and the quality of a job. It’s best to speak with multiple contractors and get several estimates. You’ll be able to compare the services they’ll provide with the overall cost of your project. When you’re making your final hiring decision, consider your budget with the quotes that have been provided and weigh the pros and cons of each. You might find that the best deal doesn’t come from the estimate that’s cheapest.

Ask questions

Don’t be afraid to ask questions of a prospective contractor. Learn more about their process, their specific approach, and how they’ll handle any unique circumstances surrounding your job. Beyond learning about the contractor’s work, get to know them a bit. Decide if this is someone you’re comfortable bringing to your home around your family. Is this someone you can work with for the entire duration of your pain project? Consider the minutia of your project so it meets your expectations when it’s finished.
