Some help on painting contractor quote please
We're in the middle of a pretty major renovation, and my GC's paint contractor just gave the quote for the work. He has asked me to review it and discuss it directly with the painter.
Before I do that, I'd like some insight about standard practices with paint contractors. I've always done my own painting but because of the scope of this project and the cathedral ceilings, it's beyond my capabilities.
Here's the bones of the quote and some questions I have:
1. Two coats of SW Pro Mar 200 to drywall -- Any thoughts on this paint? I typically use Benjamin Moore paints, but if a painter is happier working with SW, I'm OK with it as long as it's quality stuff. Because of the height of this room it will hopefully be decades before we're faced with painting again.
2. Two coats SW Pro Classic oil satin to all doors and trim -- I'm not a fan of oil paint for various reasons and really don't want my trim done in oil paint. Is this a make-or-break thing with paint contractors? I know some have strong opinions about oil paint on trim (personally, I've done a lot of trim in my house with high quality waterborne paints including FPE and BM Aura and I've been more than happy with it).
There is a two-year warranty on labor and material and they remove all the light switches, etc., and clean up.
Is there anything else I need to be asking when talking with him about the quote?
Your views on it are very much appreciated.
