The Not-So-Secret Reason for a Price Difference Between Professional Paint Contractors

We understand there are so many factors that go into the decision process of painting your home. Aside from color selection, hiring the right paint contractor is a crucial step in the preparation stage. Finding a painting contractor that will do the job successfully and within your budget is what we all desire. So why is there often a big price difference from one paint contractor to the next?

Hiring a paint contractor is something on which you shouldn’t cut corners. While the price difference with a low-cost contractor may be ideal for your budget, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re getting the best deal for your exterior or interior paint job. The lower cost may be from the lack of experience and knowledge the paint contractor brings to the job. In addition, licensing and insurance also raise costs. (Always double check to see that your paint contractor is licensed and insured. This protects the painter and YOU, the homeowner.) Other law-breaking practices, such as paying employees under the table, can drive lower costs.

In all, a truly professional paint contractor has professionally skilled employees that are well trained for the job. In addition, they will not skimp on the quality of work on your home. They use high-quality and long-lasting paint that will prevent problems in the future. They also have a well-rounded understanding of different techniques, such as priming, that will leave your home looking great.

The bottom line is that we want you to be smart when hiring a professional to do your residential paint job. At Smith and Company Painting we have seen many customers that have had horrible experiences as a result of choosing the “bargain” contractor. Don’t make this mistake, be smart, and you’ll have a paint job that you’ll be proud to show off!
