What is a painting contractor?

A typical painting contractor can deal directly with the homeowner or work as a sub-contractor. Painting contractors are rarely large firms; many are one or two man operations while others may employ upwards of twenty painting pros.

Finding a great painter:

Painting contractors tend to work within their local area, as the term implies they focus on painting, but there are also those that will do minor repairs on drywall and plaster and hang wallpaper as well.

It is difficult to get accurate information about local painters; as a result, the majority of homeowners rely on “word of mouth.” Neighbors are a very good source for names and experiences. Some painters will put up a small sign where they are working. When you get positive comments and recommendations from people in the area, check the internet, the best San Antonio painter will have developed a significant web presence showing past jobs and providing details of the work they do.

Interviewing the painter:

Unlike interviewing an electrician or a plumber, you do not have to know or understand a highly technical vocabulary. The best house painters are very good at explaining what they will do, how they will do it and how long it will take. You will want to discuss such things as the paint quality, the time for preparation and painting, clean up after the job is finished, etc.
