When building a home or remodelLing, should I hire a paint company directly or have the builders oversee the painting?

Builders and tradesmen can source painters and manage the painting. Although this can appear simpler and more cost effective on the onset, there are a few draw backs to this method.

  • Personally selecting an hiring a painting company yourself puts you in direct communication with them, giving you greater leverage and control over price, quality and timeline.
  • Without a middle man to take a portion of the profit, hiring a company direct is often cheaper.
  • When receiving a quote from a painting company, you can ask for it to be itemised. Itemisation of a job allows you to schedule what rooms or areas are a priority and what can be painted later, helping you to stay in budget and meet essential deadlines.
  • If you are involved, you can ensure the job is completed exactly how you wish and with the highest standards of quality.

For these reasons, we suggest hiring a paint company yourself if budget and quality are important to you.
