Painting Contract Bids – which one will you choose?

Choose Wisely

“I’m not rich enough to buy cheap things”

This saying holds true with so many things in life, and is even truer today! This is so true when it comes to painting your Tucson Home.

The main reason we paint our homes is to weather proof and protect our homes from the harsh Tucson weather. Premium quality paints will protect our homes from the elements; the decorative value is just a bonus. If you fall for the trick of buying cheap paint thinking you’re saving money, nothing could be further from the truth. You’re wasting your money, the cheap paint will not do what you bought it to do.

Think about this when hiring a Tucson Painting Contractor. Low bidders cut corners on surface preparation by either completely skipping steps in the preparation process or using inferior products. If your Tucson home is not prepared properly the paint will not weather well. Within a few years, the inferior paint job will become obvious, an experienced eye can detect an inferior paint job even sooner. Then you will have to hire another Painting Contractor, hopefully a reputable one this time, who will do the job right the first time. Then you will be pay the increased material and labor cost of the future.

Some additional food for thought when the low bidders paint job begins to breakdown and fail will he be around to honor the warranty. A low bidder may not even make enough profit in the job to afford to stay in business. If he is still in business he may not be able to afford it. Something else to think about, the registrar of Contractors only requires we guarantee our work for 2 years, that’s it 2 years. It’s very easy to get a paint job to last that long after the two years the low bidder is no responsible for his work.

These are some of the unforeseen issues that can arise when the low bidder is hired. Often times a closer look will reveal the real value and peace of mind will be found in the higher bidder. This is why when we paint an exterior we use a premium acrylic paint that has a 15 manufacturer warranty at a minimum. A warranty from a solid company, one of the nation’s largest paint manufacturer’s! This is real peace of mind and true value! In my next post I will outline the steps we take when we paint and why they add to the value and life of the job.
