We’d like to hope you would consider us whenever you make your decision to hire a painting contractor, but putting that aside, there are a few things I’d like to tell you as you consider the right painter for your needs:
1. The term “cookie cutter paint jobs” is unknown in the field of professional painting. Every job is unique: the size of the walls, the “gingerbread” molding, the design of the frames around the windows… I could go on. You should consider a seasoned pro who can take on the challenge of your unique house design.
2. Ask about a paint warranty, and get it in writing. See if it has a reasonable amount of time before expiring – I would say 3 years is sufficient. Make sure you understand the warranty’s limitations as well.
3. Check with the Better Business Bureau (we’re proud members). Look for contractors with no bad comments or judgments. This is valuable, because the BBB keeps records as far back as 3 years on Knoxville area contractors, including non-members.
