If your building is pre-1978 and your project disturbs more than 6 square feet of interior or 20 square feet of exterior, you must make sure that your painter is a Lead-Safe Certified Firm. Do-it-yourself homeowners and property managers using staff without certification risk stiff penalties.
Check references and ask questions. What type of paint and other materials will you use? What does the warranty cover? Does the proposal cover pulling permit if applicable? A professional painting job will save you money in the long term. Verify the license and insurance. Insist on getting materials and warranties in writing.
Is it important that my Florida House Painter is licensed & fully insured?
Painters climb ladders and work in awkward positions. Damage or injury caused by an uninsured painter can result in denial of coverage. Check appropriate local and state permitting and license requirements. You can be forced to demolish unpermitted work.
Make sure not to hire an uninsured painting contractor you dont want to be liable. Property Managers will not allow uninsured painters on their property. Smart homeowners wont either.
