Hiring a Painting Contractor
I would like to hire someone to paint my staircase and would like to know how to interview her/him to ensure they have the right experience and know the right products to use, etc.
None of my friends have painted their staircase and they do their own wall/trim painting so I am unable to get a referral. I can go to my local BM store and pick up a few business cards displayed on the counter but how do I know which person is best for my project?
I hired one painter from a store referral and she did a good job with painting rooms but not so well with painting doors (didn't brush in the right directions and left curved brushstrokes around corners; patching filler wasn't sanded down enough).
Any suggestions for how I should go about hiring someome?
