Thanks for pointing out that it would be helpful to ask friends and neighbors. As you said, they might know a painter that has serviced them before. I would suggest this to my cousin who just bought a property this month and plans to get the whole exterior repainted.

It’s great that you talked about how a professional painting contractor gives you a detailed work proposal. Recently, my wife and I realized our house’s exterior could use a fresh coat of paint. We believe our paint looks too damaged, so we’ll be sure to look for a professional’s help. Thanks for the advice on painting contractors and how to find one.
