Who doesn’t love a beautiful kitchen cabinet? Your cabinets are a major part of your kitchen, so you want them to look their best. However, just because your cabinets may be old or looking a little worn doesn’t mean you need to replace them in their entirety. A quality cabinet painting company can work magic when it comes to restoring the look and aesthetic quality of your cabinets. If you’re interested in such a service, here are some qualities you should look for in a professional cabinet painting company.
Any contractor you hire should have ample experience and expertise in the services you’re hoping to receive. Inquiring about how many years a company has been in business can be very telling about its success in the community. Ask your family and friends to recommend cabinet painting services they’ve used throughout the years.
Companies that have been around for a while have been able to stand the test of time and have the clientele to back it up. Building up a loyal following is no easy task, so when you find a business that’s revered by its customers, don’t wait to make an appointment. An experienced team will be able to complete the job in the most efficient way. This will leave you with long-lasting results you’re satisfied with for years to come.
You might think painting is a safe job, but accidents can happen in any type of work. If professionals are dealing with cabinets, a unit can fall or the tools they’re using may have a mishap or malfunction. The point is, that anything can happen, so a contractor should always have their own insurance. Before you sign any contract, ask for proof of their insurance so you can have peace of mind that you won’t be liable in case they have an accident. As long as the contractor has their own insurance, it’ll cover any of their medical or hospital stays, so you won’t be liable for it.
Always make sure you see good reviews about a contractor before hiring them. Even if you got a contractor by way of a personal referral, you should always go online and see what customer testimonials are saying about their work. After all, that referral may have dealt with that contractor a few years ago, and their services and quality may have changed in some way since then. It’s always a good idea to double-check the latest reviews to see if they’re still up to the standard of recommendation. Be sure to explore their website to see a comprehensive list of services and what other locals are saying about the company’s performance. Remember, customer service is very important, so be sure to keep an eye out for reviews that note how the service providers treated them upon doing the job.
A guarantee is another good type of insurance to get from your cabinet painter. When a client provides a guarantee of their work, it usually shows they have confidence in their ability to supply the right service you need. A guarantee is often a promise the painting contractor will give you back your money within a certain amount of time if you’re not satisfied with their work. A guarantee can also be a warranty that can last for a month, a year, or a few years in which the contractor agrees to come back to do repairs without additional fees if their initial work went wrong.
You shouldn’t rush your cabinet painter to do their job. After all, cabinet painting is a process that can take days or weeks to do properly. Understand how to clean the surface, and apply several layers of paint and protected sealant. Plus, these layers need time to dry in between, so don’t expect your cabinet painting to be done in a day. With that being said, you also don’t want the cabinet painter to labor too long on the job as it can affect your home and work life. Any type of kitchen work that’s being done can be loud and distracting. According to Zippia, more than 65% of American employees work remotely some or all of the time. A professional contractor can hopefully keep that in mind and not take too long to get the work done so your work and schedule aren’t disrupted.
Your cabinet painting company will be in your home for at least a few days or weeks. While you don’t need them to be your best friend, it’s still nice if the people who’ll be in your home are personable and approachable. After all, as their client, you should feel comfortable approaching the crew in case something is wrong or if they’re doing something you’re not a big fan of You should also be comfortable enough to congratulate them on a job well done. Plus, when you have a friendly contractor on deck, it can make you feel good that you hired a nice person who did a great job.
Expertise is the main quality any cabinet painting company should have. The quality of their work should easily shine through, whether it’s in portfolio samples that they show you, as well as in any referrals that they provide to you. If you call those peripherals, they should be able to account for the level of expertise shown in work done in their home. The contractor should also show their expertise when you’re speaking to them. When you’re asking them questions about cabinets, painting, and other related services, they should be able to answer your questions clearly and concisely. You don’t want to feel like you’re dealing with amateurs who are just winging it and don’t understand the materials or equipment they’re dealing with.
To further confirm their expertise, you should also check the contractor out on the Better Business Bureau’s website. The BBB will list any open complaints against a company. It also gives the company a letter grade from A through F. The site also lists the year the company was initiated and shows whether or not they’re registered with the BBB itself. In other words, if the company has a low letter grade such as D or F, and isn’t registered with the Better Business Bureau, that’s usually a red flag you should move on to a different option.
