If you are looking to raise the value or improve the appearance of your home, it may be time for you to consider hiring a professional painter. Sure, you could paint your home yourself, but you will not be able to produce the same level of high quality results that a professional painter can produce. Professional painters literally paint for a living, so when you hire a pro, you can be sure you will get quality work.
You know you should hire a professional to paint your house, but where do you find one in your town?
1. Search Engines
The internet has made searching for any product or service as simple as typing a keyword into a search engine. Go to your favorite search engine, type "your city + painter" ( "Cleveland painter" for example) in the search box, and click search! You should get a list of professional painters who are serious enough about their business to get a website. On their website, you should be able to find their contact details. Give them a call and ask them to come to your home for a quote.
2. Paint Stores
Paint stores are a great place to find professional painters, but most people never think to look in paint stores! Start a normal conversation with a few people in your local paint store, and I am sure you will find at least one professional painter! Since you were friendly with the painter, you may even get a friendly discount!
Flyers are a wonderful way for any service provider to advertise their services locally. Keep an eye out for flyers hanging on telephone poles or walls. Also, be sure to check your mail before putting it into the "junk" pile. You may see a painter advertising their services with direct mail flyers.
Chances are, someone you know has hired a professional painter. Ask your family, friends, and co-workers to recommend a painter to you. I doubt they would recommend a painter who does not do good work.
5. Painter Directories
There are directories in just about every industry, including the paint industry. When searching for a painter, check the industry-specific directories for ratings and testimonials. Most directories are local, so you should not have to filter through a bunch of contractors who live far away from you.
