4 Things to Know About Hiring a House Painter in Lancaster, PA


This is Todd with Todd A Hess Painting Company, and I’d like to speak with you now about some things you need to know if you’re hiring a painter in Lancaster, PA. There are four of them that are very important to us.

Number one would be, does the painting company have insurance? It’s sometimes overlooked, but we encourage people to ensure a painting contractor has insurance.

We also encourage customers to ask if the person does criminal background checks. Everybody in our company has criminal background checks done. The last thing you want is somebody inside your home with some criminal background that could put your family in danger.

We also have seen proposals with clients come in in the past, and it’s like, “Oh, we’re going to use Sherwin-Williams paint.” But they need to specify what line they will use for paint. So you could be duped and say, “Hey, they’re using Sherwin-Williams paint.” But it’s only a lower-end paint. It is different from the high-quality paint you want for the longevity of your project to last.

And the fourth and final one would be, does the painting contractor do the type of work you want to do often? And the reason why this is vitally important is we do large exterior projects with a lot of wood on them. Due to cost, some of these projects have yet to be done for 10, 15, 20, and 25 years. So when customers want to get these projects done, they want them to last for a while because it’s a significant investment. If you are in the market and looking to get a painting project done, please call us at (717) 881-5807.
