    2. They should have both business liability & worker's compensation insurance.
    3. They should at least a couple of hundreds of dollars in liability coverage.

     

    2. Will your staff or subcontractors work for us?

    Ask them if their workers are staff members or subcontractors.

    • There are pros & cons to hire company which has its own staff versus the painting company that does work through subcontractor.
    • Staff members are less likely to cut corners. They will have insurance cover.
    • The contractor will know the people on their payroll, which means greater safety.

     

    3. What type of materials do you use?

    • The quality of paint materials will affect your home’s looks.
    • It will also affect how long the paintwork will last.
    • Ask them about the coatings they will be using.

     

    4. Do you train your staff

    Ask the contractor if their staff receives training.

    • Regular training helps reduce mistakes and mishaps.
    • It helps deliver quality results in their work.
    • It also means that your home will be painted in time.
    • Also check if they receive safety training.

     

    5. Do you offer any warranty?

    You must also ask about a warranty.

    • A warranty of 1 to 3 years is more common.
