PLEASE BE AWARE THAT MOST PAINTING COMPANIES ARE NOT PROPERLY INSURED OR NOT INSURED AT ALL!
When painting interior and exterior residential or commercial properties, the workers who perform the painting must be covered under workers compensation code. Workers who have workers compensation Exemption are basically not covered by insurance. And that only makes you responsible for any accident that happens when performing a job on your property.
Got a cheap price? Now you know why.
Don’t play with fire – DO NOT hire a company who is not properly insured. If an accident occurs, you will be liable for both the medical and legal expenses which could be astronomical!
In order to help you search and find out about our coverage for worker's compensation and Liability insurance we provide you the official direct numbers where you can find out more about it. You will be surprised by how many companies are not even “insured”.
Worker’s Comp: (866) 873-0386
Liability Insurance: (407) 788-3000
When a painting company has its own painters the level of professionalism, communication and systematic production on the job site works flawless from the beginning to the end of the project. In the other hand if you use a contractor that then uses a subcontractor, you have no direct control over the quality of subcontractors' work, insurance, responsibility and liabilities. Subcontractors may not appreciate your business, and may lack the motivation and commitment of permanent staff. If you hire a contractor that hire subcontractors, make sure the subcontractors have current certificate of competency for the trade they are performing, workmen’s compensation and liability insurance.
Your contractor should be willing to give you the supplier’s name and telephone number for all products they recommend. You have a right to know what products will be used in your home.
When you are making renovations to your property you are investing time and money. And the only way to protect your investment for the long run and buy with confidence is hiring a painting company that provides you a warranty on the products and labor for the services that you are paying for.
Finally, make sure you compare warranties with all companies you interview to finish your painting project. You want to enjoy the results for many years to come!
