Tips for Communicating with Your Professional Painter
A new year is a great time for a new look for your home. Maybe you have decided that 2020 is the year to hire a professional painter to upgrade the interior and exterior of your home. Just remember that working with the right painter is key and communicating properly is needed for the process to go smooth!
Be Open About Your Expectations
You always want to make sure that you relay everything you want and what you expect from your painter. This means sitting down with them ahead of time and planning out the project. From the colors to the timeline, make sure that you are both on the same page. Which also means how you two should communicate. Do you prefer through email, through text or by a phone call? Also, discuss with your painter how much you want to be involved. Do you want them to check-in with you on every decision or just once a week? Once you speak with your painter about this, you can set a plan for the painting project!
Discuss Your Budget
One of the most important details to discuss is your budget. This is another thing to be completely honest and open about with your painter. How much are you wanting to spend on your painting project? Do you have any room to go over? Always discuss all of the details about your budget right away so that your painter will know what they are dealing with. Make sure to ALWAYS get estimates ahead of time so you know what to expect as well and let your painter know to alert you of any changes.
Supplies and Techniques
Don’t ever be afraid to ask questions! You should always feel comfortable asking your painter what type of supplies they are going to use. This means the type of paint and what type of brushes. In addition, ask them what techniques they use. You want to know about the process they are using, especially if it is going to impact your daily life by having to have certain areas of your home closed off for some time. This is why it is so important to always choose the right painter, one that has plenty of experience, is easy to work with, is always reliable and will produce high-quality work.
