5 questions to ask your Sydney painter
People decide to renovate their homes for different reasons. Perhaps the home is quite old and needs to be modernised a little, maybe you are trying to increase the value of your Sydney property with hopes of selling it in the near future, or perhaps you just feel that it is time for a fresh new look.
Regardless of your reasons, giving the home a fresh coat of paint is probably one of the quickest, easiest, and less expensive renovation projects that you can do.
In fact, painting is considered one of the most popular home renovation projects, and it has great returns for your money and time. While some people may decide that repainting is a renovation project that they can do themselves, others will prefer to hire a trusted, local painter for the project.
Before hiring a Sydney painter for your home renovation project, it is a good idea to ask a few questions to find out whether the painter has the right qualifications and experience for the job.
Some great questions we always recommend to ask include:
1. How long have you been in business?
It is a good idea to hire a Sydney painter who has been in business for at least three years. The painting industry typically has a high turnover rate, and anyone who has lasted three years or more will usually have a good client base that can recommend their work.
2. Are your employees experienced?
Of course, everybody has to start somewhere, even tradesmen, but ensure that the painting business you are talking to have a good team of skilled painters on hand. Check their certifications, qualifications, and training, and ensure that any trainee who may be working on your home is properly supervised at all times.
3. Are you insured?
It is extremely important that whomever you hire to paint your home, whether it is an individual or company has the necessary insurances in place for your protection.
All reputable and licensed painters will have at least basic policies in place such as public liability insurances.
4. What kind of advanced preparation will you do?
Find a painter who is willing to put some thought into your project, who will spend the time to properly set up, and who has a plan in place.
