Finding a Good House Painting Contractor in Raleigh
What You Need to Consider when Looking for a Painting Contractor
Every residential homeowner sooner or later needs to have their house painted and needs to find a trustworthy painting contractor or company. There are a few important things to keep in mind before you allow a local house painter onto your property and into your home. First Impressions are Important
Insurance, License and Bonding
Good Reviews and a Reputation for being Fair
Experience with the Type of Project You Need
A Price that You can Trust
First Impressions are Important
T-shirts, jeans, and work boots are appropriate attire for the job, however, the overall appearance should be neat. A painter wearing a tattered shirt or jeans with holes is not interested enough to make a good first impression. It makes one wonder what kind of attention to detail they will have while painting your home. Also, have a glance at the vehicle parked in your driveway - does it meets your expectations for someone working inside your home. Of all home improvement projects, painting probably demands more neatness - paint spilled on your carpet or floor is difficult to overcome.
Contractor Insurance, License and Bonding in Raleigh
In North Carolina a handyman or house painting contractor should have a business license and be able to show it to you. You should also ask for proof of liability insurance and bonding. No credible painter or contractor will mind being asked to prove his credibility - it shows their integrity.
Interior and Exterior Painting Reviews and a Good Reputation in Raleigh
Ask the painter for a recommendation. Before hiring a painting contractor, cross reference their information using a search engine on the internet. If a review or recommendation given by the contractor is not accurate, you might want to ask for a second review. A more experienced painter will also be able to provide you with examples of interior and exterior painting projects.
A Price that You can Trust
A reputable painting contractor will give you a price you can trust. Most contractor estimates give a 5-10% margin to cover the unexpected, but after that you need the confidence that your price is not going to change dramatically. Every now and then the contractor might find rotted wood or structural problems that were impossible to foresee - no handyman can guarantee against this and this is where the homeowner can feel some security IF they have already done the steps above to ensure the reliability of the handyman. You can always ask for a second opinion - have another contractor look at the "unexpected" problem to make sure the repairs merit the new price. Remember: painting ceilings and doors, or bare drywall, does take more time and/or more painting materials.

Our Craftsman Direct
Rep was very professional, kind and responsive. Due to our schedule, we chose to wait 2 1/2 weeks before starting the project though the Craftsman Direct team was available the week after receiving the quote....It looks brand new! The job was estimated to take 2-3 days and was actually completed in a day and a half....We will definitely use Craftsman Direct
again for future projects.
They were professional, friendly, very neat and considerate of our funiture and drapes, everything covered...Everything was spotless when they all left. Excellent job!...I smile every time I look at my ceilings!!
