Painting Quote Checklist

Below are a few things to consider when getting a painting quotation to ensure that you only get the best quality service for a reasonable price.


Did you receive a written quotation?

The scope of work should be clearly defined including all areas to be painted and those excluded. The procedure should be outlined including the preparation to be undertaken, the type of paint and the number of coats to be used.


Has the company been in business for five years or more?

Statistics indicate that most contracting failures occur during the first few years of operation.


For your protection, is the job to be paid for only after substantial completion?

When a contractor asks for a deposit it is usually a sign of insufficient credit or under capitalisation; this could lead to problems.


When you called, did you get a company representative and was he/she on time? Were references offered?

This will help you determine the contractor's ability to perform.


Is the contractor properly insured?

We carry public liability of $10,000,000 for your protection.


Is the contractor licensed?

Where required by state law we carry the necessary licences.


Will the contractor offer a warranty on workmanship and materials and do you believe the warranty will be honoured if a problem occurs?


Is the contractor a member of the Master Painters Association?

Master Painters Melbourne - All members of the association will guarantee their work.
