How can you differentiate an amateur from a Professional Painter? An academic scroll or a University Degree does not guarantee that you have snagged yourself an expert. Here is how you can tell a wannabe painter from an experienced one.
Did you know that you do not have to work with a person to see that they are professional? The following qualities, Timeliness, Attention to Detail, Wealth of Experience, and Courtesy, are what you can spot in a Professional Painter even before working together.
What do we mean by that?
During your first appointment with the team, are they punctual? Or are they tardy? Even so, if there was a reason for them to be late, they could at least inform you so the appointment can be rescheduled. If your painter is okay to leave you in the dark and allow you to wait for them to show up, wake up. It would be best if you avoided this kind of person. How will they meet your deadlines if they can’t even ensure that they are on time for your first appointment? Besides, a painter should pay attention to detail. Would you want someone to paint over your walls sloppily? Before hiring a painter, you should test their ability to pay attention to detail. Show the painter a portion of your wall that is rough around the edges and possibly have nail holes.
Ask and observe how your painter examines the space. See what your painter suggests. For example, will he smoothen the surface with primer? Another quality that a painter, or rather, any decent human being, would need to be courteous. Need we say more? We bet that nobody would want to hire or work with someone that is ill-mannered and have no respect for you. We agree that experience should not be the basis you use to choose your painter. However, it would be a good quality to hold as an advantage. Why? Because an experienced painter should know the standards and best practices out there.
