Somerset Painting & Professional Home Improvements
Somerset Painting is outstanding!! I found them a few months ago (based on already excellent reviews) to help paint some rooms in my new house. Rick, the company’s owner, came over and gave me an estimate. The price was reasonable (especially compared to other estimates I received at the same time), and scheduling was fast and easy. They did a great job painting those rooms and made my kids very happy with the new paint colors. The quality of the work was outstanding, and they were very clean.Then last week I had a "painting emergency." I was trying to fix up my old house to get it on the market. I patched numerous nail holes in lots of walls throughout the house and then used paint that I had sitting around to paint over the patchwork. Although the paint I used was labeled for specific rooms, it was mislabeled by some different painters that I had used years back. The paint did not match and looked horrible! I was in a huge bind since my foyer, kitchen, family room and every hallway looked awful due to my mistake, and it was not presentable for people looking to buy. I immediately called Rick at Somerset Painting to see if he could help. Rick understood my dilemma and was out the same day to give me an estimate. His estimate was very reasonable, and his team was out the very next day to repaint all of those rooms/halls. It was a quite a job, but Rick and his team got it done very fast. Not only did they complete the job quickly, but the job was done perfectly and exceeded my expectations. I will be hiring Somerset Painting again in the future for sure. They take pride in their work and are very professional. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs painting!
Tips & Advices
For a long-lasting paint job, a clean wall is crucial. Ask how they plan to clean your walls, if at all, before getting started. A high-quality company will thoroughly prepare a wall so that the paint will lay smoothly and last a long time.
Yes. A well-established company will have more experience and likely more references for you to reach out to than a new company that's just getting off the ground. Be sure to ask for references so you can speak to former customers about their experience working with the painter. When speaking to these people, ask about:
  • Whether they had issues with the crew
  • If the painters were messy or neat
  • How the paint has held up since the project was completed
The quality of the paint will affect how good the walls look when the project is completed. If your contractor says they plan on using a paint you don't like, feel free to request an alternative.
If the contractor makes a point to train new hires on safety techniques as well as quality standards on the job, you're probably in good hands.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of cases where a painter has stolen items from a home or caused damage to the house or injury to the homeowner. Subcontractors may not be as skilled as employees, and the contractor you're hiring may not have much experience working with them, making them more of a risk. Additionally, ask if the painters are employees or subcontractors, and what the screening or hiring process is like.
