People spend ages thinking about paint colour schemes, wallpapers and interior finishes such as carpets and flooring but don’t give the right attention to selecting the contractor. You could have the best interior design in place but if you choose the wrong contractor, your dreams can turn into a nightmare. This is particularly the case for commercial painting and decorating. If you are renovating your business, decorating your school or refurbishing a hospital ward you need to be certain that the contractors will do a good job, on time and to budget. These are our top 5 suggestions for helping you choose the right painting and decorating contractor for you:
1. Check out their reputation
A good contractor will have a good reputation. They will have plenty of clients that they are only too pleased to put you in touch with. Find out the contact details for a couple of commercial customers who are happy to be associated with the painting and decorating contractor works. E and M Services have a host of clients who offer testimonials about our work. Ensure that your contractor sticks to their promises, performs well and leaves a lasting positive memory.
2. Make sure that the contractor is insured and accredited
Ask the contractor to demonstrate their competency to carry out your work. Ensure they have suitable and sufficient insurances in place to be able to carry out your work. E and M Services have £10m Public Liability insurance and we always provide our insurance details to our clients . This means, that should the unthinkable happen, our insurance company will step in to resolve the issues. We are not just insured but we are members of Constructionline which assures our clients of our commitment to good health and safety.
3. Are they DBS Checked?
You can never be too careful. It is never a good idea to let just anyone into your premises. E and M Services carry out flooring and decorating works for lots of different schools, churches, hospitals and colleges in Coventry and Warwickshire and across the West Midlands. To make sure our staff are safe to work in these environments we carry out DBS vetting of our team. This gives us and our clients peace of mind. Always make sure that your contractors have the correct clearance to work on your premises.
4. Do they provide value for money?
There is a saying that not a single item exists that can not be made by someone else cheaper. It is always a good idea to get multiple quotations but buyer beware, the cheapest is often not the best. E and M Services offer great value for money, we complete our projects on time and to fixed prices. We use quality tradespeople who we would gladly have work in our own homes. We don’t skimp or look for shortcuts. We offer a premium services for a really competitive price. Lots of our clients come back to us time and again. Budget decorators can be a false economy. If they do not have the correct insurances, training, health and safety systems, qualifications or experience you could end up with a real messy job. Our team look after your premises like they were ours. We sheet up properly, we clean up after ourselves and we make sure the job is done properly. Make sure you get value for money out of your contractors, good quality paints and materials and experienced tradespeople.
5. Do they offer a guarantee?
A good painting and decorating contractor will want to leave you smiling from ear to ear from their work. In order to do this they should offer you a guarantee. Not only does E and M Services provide a first class service and quality products but we also offer a guarantee on our workmanship. If an experienced painter and decorator does a job for you the final finish should be exceptional.
