In this era of digital media, any painting contractor is likely to have an online presence. Take some time to visit their social media pages, google pages and take a look to see their customer reviews and recent projects. It is important to see what the ratings of these companies are, as this can be a good indicator of their quality of work. If there have been consistent or significant complaints against the company, this may be a red flag that is worth looking into more.
This is also a good time to get quotes from the different companies which you are looking into. Getting quotes from multiple companies will give you a good indication of the ballpark amount you should expect to pay and help rule out companies that quote either too high or too low prices!
As you complete your research for a painting contractor, it is vital to ask for references and take the time to contact past clients of the company. This will give you a good idea on the quality of their work, their commitment to customer satisfaction, and if their customers would recommend them for future projects. Remember, a good painting contractor will be more than happy to provide you with references and their contact information. If your contractor is unwilling to provide this information, it may be a red flag which you should watch out for.
A professional commercial painting contractor should generally have adequate public liability insurance and have the province’s workers compensation coverage (WSIB) needed to operate in the province. This is a good indicator of whether or not the company is legitimate and willing to comply with local laws. People often go with an unlicensed painter to save on costs. However, this can open your commercial business up to a lot of liabilities. Your company will also lose the right to report the company or request a refund should the paint job fail to meet your expectations.
