3 Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring A Painter

With fall just around the corner, many of us turn our attention to making visual improvements to our business, farm or home, including interior and exterior painting.  Knowing that many people are probably considering some sort of painting project, you may notice unfamiliar painters in your area looking for work.  Often they claim to have “excess” paint from another job in the area and are offering to use it up on your property along with deeply discounted labor.  The professional paint team at Gateway FS Construction Services call these painters “fly by night painters” and would like to caution our customers when considering hiring one of them.


There are many things to take into consideration before hiring a paint crew including these key points:

  1. Are they bonded and properly insured?  Many carry minimal to no insurance, meaning you would likely be liable if they are injured on your property.  This fact alone should be weighed seriously before entering into any type of contract.
  2. Will your property receive the proper preparation?  Most of the time “fly by night painters” simply spray paint directly on the surface to be painted with little or no surface preparation.  The paint will not last long under these conditions.
  3. Do they stand by their work and offer any type of warrantee?  By the time you notice that you have a problem with your paint job, these painters will be long gone.  In the long fun, you will end up spending more money having your property prepped properly and repainted correctly.
