‘‘He's very straightforward and easy to deal with. There were no surprises when the bill came.

‘‘Basic painting, it's true, anybody could do. But if you want it to end up looking good, the prep has to really be good, and I thought they excelled at that.

‘‘I'm a repeat customer. I don't even bother to get other estimates now, because I'm just very happy with their job, and I know that his prices are fair.’’

--Alan Paul


‘‘For us, it mattered so much that we knew we had someone we trusted and felt good about.

‘‘It was obvious George knew what he was talking about, and then you see the results and that it has lasted, didn't peel. ... We totally would use him again. There's not even a question.’’

 --Laura Whitmire

Painting Costs: Why the Lowest Bid
Isn't Necessarily the Best Price

If you own a house with wood siding, one of the biggest costs of maintaining your home is keeping the paint looking fresh.

Unless you’re industrious and like to tackle big, messy jobs yourself, you’ll probably need to hire a house painter once every six or eight years. When the time comes to choose a painting contractor, how can you be sure you’re getting the best price?

You’ll obviously need to compare prices, and most customers get estimates from three or four painting companies.

But then what? Should you pick the painter who comes in with the lowest bid?

You could, but first consider the story of Laura Whitmire, a Maplewood, N.J., homeowner. Laura had her house painted the same month her neighbor did, and she got a firsthand look at the dangers of choosing the lowest estimate.

Although she paid a few hundred dollars more than her neighbor, Laura saved big n the long run.

Why? Within a year, her neighbor’s paint was peeling. Everywhere.

He had to hire a new painting contractor to re-paint his house, and his two paint jobs ended up costing a lot more than Laura’s one job did.
