How to Hire a Painting Contractor for Your Home in the Southern United States

Residential Painting Contractor Southern United StatesIf you’ve decided to hire a painting contractor to repaint your home’s interior rooms or exterior walls, congratulations! A residential painting project may seem like a good DIY opportunity, but there are many missteps that someone who rarely paints might take, and sometimes those mistakes can lead to costly repairs. Hiring a highly experienced professional house painter who is better equipped to avoid those pitfalls can potentially save you money. It may also be a huge time-saver. If you’re like many homeowners today, you have a busy lifestyle, which means your painting project is likely to span several weekends while you carve out time here and there to tackle the many steps involved. This means you and your family could be living for months with the inconveniences caused by an unfinished project.

So, now that you’ve made the important decision to hire a painting contractor, how do you go about it? Whether you have an interior or exterior painting project in mind, choosing your contractor is a critical decision that you should make at the outset. Even if you want to repaint your house with the same color it sports now, you’ll want to discuss your plans with a residential painting professional before your project begins. Experienced house painters can use their expertise to help you select the best colors to complement your home and resist fading. They can also recommend the best type of paint for your specific project. For example, the ideal products for an exterior home painting project in a coastal area of the Southern United States may not be the same as those for a house that’s located in a drier climate.

In the meantime, here are some tips for hiring a residential painting professional:

Get a Detailed, Written Estimate

House painting projects, whether interior or exterior, typically require repairs and prep work before the first brush or roller touches a wall. Conscientious painting professionals will perform a thorough inspection of the project area, using their expertise to spot wood rot, cracks, and other damage that should be repaired before painting. You should receive a detailed, written estimate that includes the cost of prep work as well as the actual painting. Your estimate should include all paints, caulk, sealants, and other materials required for the job.

Insist on High-Quality Paint Products

The best residential painting professionals use high-quality paints from manufacturers like Sherwin-Williams®, PPG Pittsburgh Paints®, and Benjamin Moore®. The selection of high-performing paints is an important part of your project. A well-qualified painting professional should be able to recommend paints and other materials that are suited to your specific purpose. For example, if you’re having your bathroom repainted, you’ll want to choose an interior paint product that will stand up to heat and humidity.

Ask About Qualifications

It’s a good idea to hire a painting contractor that’s bonded and insured. For example, all Southern Painting companies maintain general liability policies, and each of our independent contractors is required to carry a minimum $10,000 assurance bond to provide customers with peace of mind. You’ll also want to find out how long the painting companies you’re considering for hire have been in business and the types of painting projects they have completed. Ask for references from previous customers.

Request a Labor Warranty

A residential painting project is a significant investment in your home. A workmanship warranty will not only provide you with the assurance that your investment is well protected, but it will also serve as evidence of the confidence a painting company has in the quality of its work. At Southern Painting, we offer an industry-leading 3-Year Limited Labor Warranty.

Lots of Satisfied Customers!

In fact, we’ve completed more than 100,000 residential painting jobs across the Southern United States since our founding in 1989.

What’s more, our painting professionals have extensive experience working with homeowners’ associations.

I can't believe the professional care we experienced with Southern Painting! The crew was very knowledgeable, experienced and took care of our older home like it was their own.

We needed to have some exterior and interior painting done and were also on a tight schedule. Southern painting did a great job and worked with our schedule. The house looks amazing! The entire process was very easy and everyone was friendly and professional.

I would definitely hire Southern Painting again. Professional, trustworthy and conscientious.

Absolutely phenomenal company to work with. Did a fantastic job and was very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend them to others!
