In addition to coatings, the quality of other materials matters too. For example, the quality of calk your contractor uses impacts its lifespan. The bottom line is that you should ask for details about the products that will be used on your project while also making sure that the contractor understands what they are using and why.

You’re not expecting to paint entire houses on your own, are you? Once you’ve got your business set up, it’s time to figure out whether you want to hire employees or use subcontractors instead. If you choose the former option, you’ll have to buy equipment and supplies for your own workers to use—but you’ll retain control over your business. If you choose to use subcontractors, who are essentially professional freelance painters, you won’t have to buy materials—but you’ll lose some control over your business.
• One room or the whole house? Applying one coat in one room is a reasonable DIY Saturday project (especially if you have help and beer). Multiply the time spent moving furniture, prepping walls and sanding old trim by the number of rooms in the house, and you might want to hire real help. It's the same outside. You can probably tackle one shady garage wall that needs a little scraping and sanding plus a coat of paint, but covering all surfaces of the house is usually best left to a pro.
My experience with FreshySites has been wonderful! The team has been professional, accommodating, patient, and... responsive. And the manager of my project, a joy to work with! As I’m a writer with a number of published books and another one forthcoming, my team had to incorporate quite a bit of text in a well-designed, inviting, and “fresh” way. I’m really happy with the results! The website has been garnering compliments but equally important, I’m confident FreshySites will be there for me whenever a question or future need arises. A+!—Joanna Higginsread more
We are very happy with the exterior painting done by Mayco Painting on our house. They were very professional and courteous, did excellent prep work, and their technique of spray painting and backbrushing creates quality results that really show. They cleaned up every day, and the job was started and completed on schedule. We'll hire them again to paint interiors.

If you’re like me, you waited with bated breath to find out Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year (spoiler alert: It’s greenery!) and were instantly inspired to switch up your wall colors so you could use that gorgeous, springtime shade of green.
Request the name and contact of their insurer. Even if the contractor presents you with a certificate of insurance, they could call right after your meeting and cancel. Call the insurer yourself to make sure that their insurance is up to date.
“Put a rubber band around the paint can so you have something to cleanly scrape excess paint off your brush,” he says. “You don’t want to scrape it against the can’s opening because the paint will seep into the seal, making it harder to close. The rubber band will also just drip the excess paint back into the can, limiting your waste of paint.”
I would definitely recommend Mayco Panting to anyone who needs their house painted. They communicated well, and were very professional and thorough. I've received many complements on the job they did.
