The Benefits of Hiring a Licensed and Insured Painter

When you hear the terms licensed and insured, you probably think about different service providers, like a roofer or plumber. But what about a painter that is licensed and insured? If you have high maintenance painting jobs in your home or commercial space, you’ll want a qualified painter for a couple of different reasons.

It Can Help You Save Money

When it comes to hazardous contracting jobs, a roofer or electrician may come to mind first, but think about the type of tasks painters perform, such as climbing up tall ladders  or dealing with solvents and chemicals. If the painter falls and gets injured, you could be the one paying for the accident out of your own pocket, costing you more down the road.

You Get What You Pay For

An unlicensed painter could be the equivalent to a completely inexperienced painter, which in the end could mean not only a poor painting job but the entire project could be ruined as well. If you hire an untrained painter, chances are they also won’t meet specific guidelines for your project and could end up costing you more than you originally budgeted. Not only can hiring a licensed painter from the start save you money down the line, but you’ll also see what you pay for in the quality of work you get.

Licensed and Insured Painters are Regulated by the Government

Hiring a licensed and insured painter means you’re hiring a company that’s held up to higher standards by the government. This also means that if you have any issues with the project, your painter has to put in the extra work until the project is fully complete. An unlicensed and uninsured painting company is not held up to these same standards, which not only means the quality of work could be lower, but they can also finish the job and leave when they see fit, leaving you no recourse.
