Unfortunate things can happen if your painter is not an Experienced Painting Professional.
Anyone can call themselves a painter. Compared to some of the other skilled trades, painting does not require a lot of expensive tools and equipment to get started. An inexperienced person can spend a few hundred bucks on some buckets, brushes, rollers and a 6′ ladder, put some signs on their pickup truck, and bam, he’s magically in the “painting business.”
This “Handyman Painter” usually can find work, because his bids are lower. He can afford to under bid the jobs because doesn’t have anything invested – no experience or training, no business overhead, no license or insurance. He also cuts corners, sometimes deliberately and sometimes because he doesn’t know any better.
He under bids the project because he is clueless about what it takes to do a professional painting job. He doesn’t know what prep work is required to do the job right the first time. His inexperience doesn’t recognize potential trouble, or what causes the various underlying problems common with painting, or how to fix them. All he knows is how to slap paint on a wall.
His inexperience again, under estimates the materials for the job, and you end up with 1 coat of paint instead of 2 coats, or even worse he realizes there is no profit in the project, he asks for a draw and never shows back up, leaving you with an unfinished painting project.
He misses or skips the prep details like caulking, nail pops, priming, because it’s an extra step and he basically doesn’t care about anything but getting paid.
Unfortunately, his shortcuts and mistakes don’t show up right away. His amateur paint job may look ok at first, maybe it will last for a year or two. But what happens when the paint job starts to fail? Did he offer a warranty in writing? Is he willing to stand behind his work? Will he return your calls, if his phone hasn’t been disconnected? Is he even still in business?
