Our painters never expect tips. However, if you love the work that they did on your home, you are more than welcome to tip your painters. The industry standard is typically anywhere from 2-4% of the contract
We recommend Sherwin Williams products because they do more product testing than any other paint company and they stand behind their products. This means if there is ever a manufacturing defect, you can trust that Sherwin Williams will take care of you and your project. However, we can use any type of paint you prefer…this is your house, after all!
– Unlicensed usually means uninsured. If you use a contractor who is uninsured, it means the contractor has no way of reimbursing you for any property damage he or she causes. This means you end up paying the price. Likewise, if contractor carelessness leads to injury or damage to someone else’s property, the problem is likely to become yours.
– No coverage under the homeowner’s policy. Some homeowners believe it is safe to use an uninsured contractor, assuming that any damages incurred would be covered under their own insurance policies. However, this isn’t the case. Most homeowner policies require that any work to the property be done by licensed contractors; coverage is often specifically excluded for damages caused by “bootleg” contractors.
– Poor quality work. Not all unlicensed contractors do poor quality work. And not all poor quality work is done by unlicensed contractors. However, as a rule, if there’s shoddy work to be done, it’s usually done by unlicensed contractors. Because unlicensed contractors aren’t subject to meeting specific standards, they are often untrained, less experienced, and unqualified to do certain types of work.
