Check that your Painter and Decorator has been properly trained to deliver a professional service, especially when it comes to wallpapering.
Ask how long they have been working as a Painter and Decorator for, and ask to see examples of their work – these might be on their website or perhaps a portfolio they have with them.
Always get more than one quote, but don’t always go for the cheapest option. Quality does come at a price so it’s worth baring this in mind when deciding which Painter and Decorator to go with.
A recommendation is always good to reassure that you have chosen the right company – ask for two or three in the local area if you can. They may even let you take a look. After all, a Painter and Decorator who is proud of their work would be only to happy to show off his work and his customers would be happy too!
Make sure you pay for the work on completion and not before YOU are happy. Materials can be paid for upfront. This is common practice, especially on larger jobs.
