WELCOME TO ARBIS PAINTING
hy paint? The answer is pretty obvious. Painting preserves and
beautifies. This is the Pacific Northwest. Wood and other materials are
subject to a daily assault from the elements on the exterior. This is not to
mention the assault from constant exposure to human and pet activity on the
interior. The best way to prevent the degradation of any part of the structure of
your house, inside, or out, is to create a barrier. This barrier to the weather is
what we call paint.
A good Vancouver house painting contractor will take you step-by-step through
the process of painting your home's interior and exterior. At Arbis Painting, we
begin with giving you some background information about what will be needed to
complete the job, and also exactly what will be involved. We can introduce you to
the different options, like types of paint available. If you are interested in eco-
friendly paints we can introduce you to zero or low VOC paints.
Painting the interior of a home can go a long way toward livening up living spaces
with relatively little expense. Painting the exterior seems like it would be a
marathon job, but done properly it will protect, and beautify, a home for years. At
Arbis Painting, we know your time is valuable, so why not hire a professional
painter for your next project and spend your time the way you'd like?
Using a professional painting contractor like Arbis Painting takes the stress out of painting the exterior,

Use these tips to narrow down your choices and ensure you get the right Vancouver house painting Contractor for your project.
CHECK CREDENTIALS ____________________________________________________________________________
Always ask contractors the following questions:
How long have you been in business?
Do you have the proper/required licenses?
Do you have insurance and bonding? (whether your contractor and any hired workers are insured for injury and liability.)
Are you a member of any national or local painting contractors' associations?
Do you subcontract your work or perform it yourself?
Can you provide references?
Do you offer written guarantees of your work?
PAY ATTENTION TO BEHAVIOR _____________________________________________________________
Pay attention to the following signs and behaviors when speaking to contractors:
Does the contractor project a sense of professionalism and experience?
Is the contractor courteous and business-like?
Is the contractor busy? (Good ones usually are.)
Does the contractor return phone calls and provide estimates in a timely manner?
Is the contractor on time for appointments?
Be sure to get at least three references from past customers and speak to them directly. If possible, visit references to evaluate the painter's work in
person and to see how well it has held up over time.
HIRING THE CONTRACTOR ________________________________________________________________________
Select three or more good candidates to choose from and see how they compare.
Get Estimates from at Least Three Contractors.
When you receive contractor estimates, they should fall roughly within the same price range. If estimates are widely different from one another, be
wary of contractors who bid too high or too low. Ask about what is not being done, and where corners are being cut.
The more specific and clear you are about your project needs, the more precise your contractor's estimate will be.
It's a good idea to walk each potential contractor around the areas (indoor or outdoor) to be painted while discussing your needs, as well as any
aspects of your project that could affect the price.
For example, let the contractor know exactly which surfaces should be painted (walls, trims, moldings, ceilings, etc.) and which paint colors and
finishes you want used.
REVIEW THE CONTRACT
Once you've settled on a contractor, don't fail to take the time to review your
contract—and ask questions about any details for which you need clarification. Be
sure to verify the following:
The specifics on what is to be painted (house, trim, walls, molding, etc.)
Details on preparation and cleanup
Paint colors for each area to be painted
How the contractor will protect plants, patios, furniture, or other items
How much time the project will take, from start to end
When and how the contractor will be paid
