Painting your siding is a big job that requires skill and experience. An unsteady hand will definitely leave its mark on the finished coating. That’s why it’s best to leave this kind of work to a professional painter or siding contractor. However, it’s important to do your research before hiring any contractor. Here are the details you shouldn’t overlook: Portfolio Look for the painter’s portfolio, which should be easy to find on their website. This should give you a good idea of their level of expertise. Make sure to zoom in and examine the photos—the more detailed a paint job is, the higher the level of expertise of the painter. Online Reviews Keep in mind that any home improvement project is essentially a collaboration between you and your contractor, which is why qualifications alone aren’t enough. Whether it’s a roofing or paint job, the contractor you hire should also be easy to work with and display a high level of professionalism. Online reviews should give you an idea of the kind of customer services a contractor gives. Detailed Estimates Getting an estimate from a contractor is part of the budget-planning process. Estimates should always include a detailed breakdown of the costs, including the contractor’s rate per hour and the cost of each material. Hiring Tips Once you’ve made a shortlist of contractors, you should invite them each for an onsite visit. This allows you to get a feel of whether you’re comfortable working with them or not.
