Ask to see their license

The best thing to ask before anything else is to see their license. If the painter is reliable and professional, they will not hesitate to share with you their license. Making sure that their license is genuine and not expired will save you and everyone else from possible legal troubles if problem arises.

References from previous contracts

Someone who is confident yet humble enough with their skills will not hesitate to give you referrals of past jobs. Take the time to talk to previous clients and ask for feedback. Ask if they were satisfied or not. Knowing this will give you the assurance that they can do satisfactory work.

How long they have been in business.

This question should be paired up with asking to see their license. If your potential painter can establish how long they have been in business which assures you that: one, they are not a pop-up business trying to scam people, at the same time you can make sure that they actually have a business address.

Insurance against damage.

Making sure that they have insurance against damage is absolutely crucial. Despite any assurances from them, the future is always uncertain and if your painter has insurance against damage to your property will set your mind at ease and even theirs while they do their job.

Terms of Payment
