Planning to apply a new exterior coating for your home? It’s one of the few home improvement projects that you should always hire a professional to do because it’s very tricky and complex work. In this post, Mid-South Coating lists four questions to always ask an exterior coating contractor before hiring them.
1. Do You Have Insurance?
Always ask if your prospective contractor has insurance. Your painting contractor should have two types: comprehensive business liability and worker’s compensation. The former protects you from property damage while the latter protects you and their workers from liability. We also suggest calling the insurance carrier of the contractor to see if their insurance is still valid.
2. What Kind of Materials Do You Use?
Your exterior coating isn’t just for curb appeal. It also plays a role in protecting your home and even making it more energy-efficient. Our coating company uses the TEX-COTE® coating, which is a top-of-the-line material that helps cool your home down. Not only are you beautifying and protecting your house, you’re also lowering your energy costs!
3. Will You Be Using Workers or Subcontractors?
Always ask if your prospective contractor will be doing the job themselves or will hire a subcontractor. Some home improvement projects do require subcontractors, but exterior coating isn’t one of them. When you work with our team, you have the peace of mind knowing that the team handling your coating project is ours. We don’t use subcontractors because we can do the job perfectly fine on our own.
4. Do Your Employees Receive Training?
This is a question that you should ask any home improvement contractor. Your choice of contractor should have regular training so that they stay updated with the unique demands of every project. Our team undergoes constant training, and we have a proven track record of success and happy customers.
