The people of Indore love beauty and cleanliness around them and this is evident in the way the city is planned and structured with attractively painted houses and neat streets. With a rich history as the capital of erstwhile Holkar rulers, the city’s landscape is dotted with historical buildings and modern homes. Anyone that looks at the attractive buildings and structures that have changed through the ages will recognize the taste of this city’s residents for color and design. Indore painters are evolved and experienced craftsmen that can distinguish between seasoned homeowners that have carried out several painting tasks in the past and a first timer struggling with choices of colors and finishes and provide advisory services wherever required to ensure complete satisfaction for customers.
Choosing the right painter for Indore house is critical to make it look the way you envision it. Exterior and interior painting assignments need different kinds of expertise so select wisely based on past experience. Here are some tips to help choose the right painting contractor for your dream home.
Verify references – When you call an Indore painter for checking out your house to give an estimate based on measurements get a list of references from each one of them. Take time out to call all their past clients and ask how was the work, if they completed the project on time or if they faced any issues. It would also be advisable to ask them for client references of projects done 4-5 years ago to see how they are holding up. This way you can be sure of hiring a reliable painter for the first time without regret.
Get multiple estimates - Ask every painter that you contact for the job for a detailed estimate that has summary of labor, cost of materials, number of primer and paint coats, brands of paints and cleaning materials and complete details of the job that is to be carried out. Make detailed plans with the Indore painter about what color and type of paint that you want to apply for each wall and door for it to be long lasting. Remember that cheap paints may save you money today but they won’t last long and may not be washable so not worth the expense.
Demand detailed contract – Never start work without a detailed contract that has details of the painting contractor’s name, address, contact numbers, work duration, completion date and details of staff that will be part of the project. Check if he has some kind of workers’ insurance so that you don’t end up paying if a worker falls down and gets hurt or damages your property or neighbor’s property by spilling paint.
Make payment in installments - Never make more than 20 percent advance as otherwise it is very likely that the painter may disappear with the advance. Take time out to go paint shopping with the contractor to ensure that the right type of materials are being brought and you also get an idea of different kinds of paints and applications styles in the market.
To have a home that is painted to your satisfaction and meets your décor goals take an active part in the entire process by following these steps even if the entire painting process is carried out by a contractor.
If you want the best paint for your house that does not compromise on appearance and finish but also fits within the budget then you have to calculate paint cost carefully with the help of an expert. The interior painting services is calculated on per square foot basis and the branded paint companies also train their affiliate painters to give separate quotes for paint that will be required and labor.
Indore painters affiliated to branded paint firms charge anywhere between Rs. 21- Rs. 35 per day/per individual while local painting contractors will charge between Rs. 15 to Rs. 27. Add charges of putty and one coat of primer to prepare base of wall followed by two coats of paint. Under these circumstances the cost of a home of 800 sq ft will cost around Rs. 60000 with branded paints while local painters will charge around Rs. 50000 – 55000.
