How to Choose a Painting Contractor for Your Home

February 27, 2019

According to Angie's List, here are the most important factors you should consider before hiring a painting contractor for your home décor project.  

  • Experience

  • Employees versus subcontractors

  • Legal licensing

  • Preparation work

  • References

  • Formal estimate

  • Knowledge

  • Guarantee


Of course a very important consideration is cost.  Here is what Angies's List says about cost:


"Cost. Price is naturally a concern. Getting the lowest price should not be your first or only consideration. You want to get someone with skill, experience, who is properly licensed and insured, aware of safety issues and is a good worker. That will not likely be the individual with the lowest bid. It does not need to be the highest bid, either. Just make sure not to hire on price. Look at the whole picture. Painting contractors operate on very tight profit margins. You will hear of homeowners who hired college students, unlicensed individuals and teachers out of work in the summer and were happy with the work. If the price seems too good to be true, however, it probably is."


Now let's see how Grant Painting Group stacks up:



Grant Painting Group has been involved in the painting business for three generations and our current master painter Gerard Grant has over thirty years of painting experience. 


Employees versus subcontractors

We only work with highly skilled painting tradesmen who are professional and wear uniforms.  We do not hire students or subcontractors.


Legal licensing

All of our painters are fully insured by the WSIB and we carry $5 million dollars in liability insurance in order to protect customers in the event of accident or injury.


Preparation work

Our painters are very experienced in all aspects of prep work.



You can check our references here:  



Formal estimate

What we quote is what you pay. You will always know in advance what the job is going to cost and you will never pay more. The quote will never change and includes exact specifics of the work to be done including the type of paint to be used, the areas to be painted, and the number of coats of paint.



As mentioned, all our painters are very experienced and are professional tradesmen.  The are not using your home to learn on the job.



The Grant painting Group provides a full two year guarantee on all of our work. If you have any issues within that two year period we will fix it free of charge.


Finally, here are three points that we think should also be considered:


Do the workers clean the site after completion?

We will let Lou from Smithville answer that one:

"The job was done quick, professionally and the work site was left immaculate. They really did an amazing job."


Does the company offer colour consultation?

Grant Painting Group offers free colour consultation with Natalie Kurjancic



Does the painter use environmentally friendly material?

Grant Painting Group uses odorless and low VOC environmentally friendly paint.
