Many homeowners have wondered ” how do I find a reputable house painter nearby My place?”

Well, If you’re looking to paint your home, you want to use a decorating company you can trust.

After all, it’s important that any painter-decorator you use turns up on time, doesn’t make a mess, and most importantly, doesn’t overcharge.

Here at PaintBuddy&Co, we have over ten years of experience in the painting industry and would like to share our thoughts on choosing a reliable house painter.

In this article, we will look at what makes a house painter trustworthy and how you can find the right house painting company for your needs.

We’ll also be looking at how you can become a reputable house painter yourself.

What makes a reputable house painter?

The word ‘reputable’ means different things to different people. When we think of the word, we think of someone who is trustworthy and dependable, and that won’t let you down.

We believe a reputable house painter has the following qualities:

  • Provides a fair price and does not try to overquote
  • Arrives on time
  • polite and courteous
  • Listens to their customers and takes their specific needs into consideration
  • Takes their time and doesn’t rush
  • Someone who cleans up thoroughly when the work is done
  • Someone who owns up if they make a mistake
  • Who has all the relevant qualifications and accreditations (for example, insurance certificates)

How do I find a reputable house painter?

The best way to find a reputable house painter is to ask around!

Ask your friends and family who they have used to decorate their home, and if they would recommend them to you.

Alternatively, local social media groups and online forums can give you good, impartial recommendations.

If you’ve found a painter-decorator that you like the look of, don’t be afraid to ask for testimonials. A good house painter will be more than happy to tell you about projects they have completed for satisfied customers.

Top tips for looking for a house painter

If you still need a little extra guidance to help find the perfect house painting company, here are some additional tips.

  • Do your research. Painting your home is a big investment, and you want to take the time to make sure you have chosen the right house painter.
  • Put a list of questions together you want to ask. For example, how long do they think the project will take?

    Will they provide all the materials?

    Do you need to cover the carpets and furniture beforehand, or will they do this for you?
  • Don’t worry about asking too many questions. A reputable house painter will answer all of your questions for you
  • Don’t settle on the first quote. It’s always recommended that you get three quotes for the work you want before you choose which house painter you want to go with

How to become a house painter

If you’re wondering how to get into house painting as a career, we’ve put together some guidance to help.

Connor and his team were very professional in completing the painting of our bedroom and stairwell. All care was observed in protecting furniture and inclusions with plastic covers. We would recommend them to anyone requiring a problem free job.

The service Connor and his team provided was beyond amazing! The attention to detail, timeliness and cleaning up...just awesome! It's the little things that make a difference and you don't notice them until someone else fixes them for you! :) Great value for painting both interior and exterior of our house and the comments we have received on the quality just keep on coming. My neighbour even commented how non-intrusive, tidy and friendly the team were....she even asked for Connor's number so she can get her house done as well. Word of mouth and results speak volumes. Thanks again Connor and team, we are so happy with the result. (David and Michael)

Very happy with Connor and his team. Connor was very responsive and reliable. The work began exactly the day he said and was completed neatly and efficiently as per the quote. In fact he accommodated a change that was not in the quote. It was a pleasure to work with him and his team and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
