Explore The Market Widely Extensively
The first thing you need to do is to explore widely. Do not settle for the very first contractor that you find on the internet. Seek as many options as possible, keeping in mind that the more options that you have the higher chances of finding the very best contractors for a good price. To this end, conduct an extensive internet search to come up with a list of all painters rendering their services in Auckland and the surrounding areas.
Aside from conducting an internet search, make a point of asking your friends, family, and workmates for referrals to good painters. This is especially helpful when the individuals you ask have had their roof painted in the recent past.
The next task is to review the performance of the prospective companies. For contractors with an internet presence, you can use their online review. Alternatively, you can ask each company to give its referrals of past clients to find out the kind of experience that past clients had. This will help you narrow down the companies to work with.
Ensure Every Prospective Contractor Operate Legally
After narrowing down the contractors to work with, you need to find out whether the remaining companies operate legally and whether they are insured. As such, you need to seek information on licenses and insurance coverage for both the painter and third-party coverage.
Take Matters Of Pricing Into Consideration
Finally, solicit quotes from the remaining contractors. Different contractors have different pricing modalities. There are contractors who price their work on an hourly basis while there are contractors that price their work based on the roof surface area. As such, you need to read the fine print of every quote and consider every aspect of the quote in determining whether the quote is good for you or not.
However, you should refrain from choosing a contractor based on their pricing alone. You should consider matters of quality of workmanship as you need to ensure that at the end of the project, the work done is done to your satisfaction. More importantly, the paint should last long.
