Here Are 10 Critical Characteristics To Demand From Your Connecticut Painting Contractor

& 10 Great Reasons To Hire Connecticut Paint & Thermal Coatings
  1. Honesty:
    Defined as the quality of being honest. synonyms: integrity, uprightness, honorableness, honor, morality, morals, ethics, principles, high principles, righteousness, right-mindedness.  Connecticut Paint understands that building a business is synonymous with building trust and building trust begins with honesty. That is why we say what we are going to do and follow through by doing what we said.
  2. Integrity:
    Defined as the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.  “he is known to be a man of integrity”  synonyms: honesty, probity, rectitude, honor, good character, principle(s),  ethics, morals, righteousness, morality, virtue, decency, fairness, scrupulousness, sincerity, truthfulness, trustworthiness. Life isn’t perfect and neither is painting, there are always variables, and yes Murphy was a painter : ) What makes us different is the dedication to go the extra mile to make things right when something goes wrong.
  3.  Affordable:
    Defined as inexpensive; reasonably priced.  In this market we understand that you have to watch every penny.  We keep our prices very reasonable and Steve Schappert will work with you to point out cost saving
  4.  Quality:
    Defined as a high level of value or excellence by Merriam Webster  Connecticut Paint & Thermal Coatings is devoted to delivering the highest level of value regardless of whether you need our top of the line painting service for your castle or a quick coat of paint on the dog house
  5.  Professional:
    Characterized by or conforming to the technical or ethical standards of a profession.  2. exhibiting a courteous, conscientious, and generally businesslike manner in the workplace.  Connecticut Paint and Thermal Coatings strives to be the most professional painter in Connecticut.
  6.  Neat:
    Defined as free from dirt and disorder : habitually clean and orderly   synonyms: tidy, orderly, well ordered, in (good) order, shipshape, in apple-pie order, spick and span, uncluttered, straight, trim.  Painting is a dirty job, so we created checklists and employee manuals to guide our staff. We respect your home and do our best to keep it neat and tidy throughout the project.  We employee professional house cleaners that are available for the project our on a continual basis.
  7.  Courteous:
    Defined as polite, respectful, or considerate in manner.  synonyms: polite, well mannered, civil, respectful, well behaved, well bred, well spoken, mannerly.   We all live fast paced lives these days and we can forget to make that extra call because we are running late or to simply say thank you. We believe in the importance of courtesy and treating others the way we would like to be treated.
  8.  Licensed:
    Defined as having an official license. Hiring the right person to work on your most valuable asset is a big responsibility. Aside from the cost of the work and materials, if the job isn’t done well, you could find yourself with more problems than before. Each year, more consumers complain to the Department about home improvement issues than anything else.   Fly-by-night operators tarnish the home improvement market, scamming people out of thousands of dollars each year.  Registration of legitimate home improvement contractors, and encouraging consumers only to work with registered contractors, is helping to put the scammers out of business in Connecticut.  By law, all home improvement contractors and home improvement salespersons doing work in Connecticut must be registered with the Department of Consumer Protection. This includes painters.
  9. Insured for liability and workers compensation:
    a person whose interests are protected by an insurance policy;
    a person who contracts for an insurance policy that indemnifies him against loss of property or life or health etc.  It’s easy to get a liability insurance policy for a few hundred dollars each year, but ask if they carry Workers Comp.  Workers compensation protects the consumer and the employee against injury and financial loss.  If you hire a contractor without workers compensation and someone gets hurt, the home owner could get sued.  Connecticut Paint and Thermal Coatings uses honest to goodness employees, we pay an additional 20% over wages for workers compensation. Unlicensed and uninsured contractors are bad for everyone including themselves. If you want the job done right, don’t hire someone that is cutting corners before they start.
  10.  Home Improvement Guarantee Fund:
    The Department of Consumer Protection maintains the Home Improvement Guaranty Fund.  This pool of money was created and is replenished from annual assessments of registered contractors, and can be used to help satisfy an unpaid judgment to a homeowner. A homeowner may be eligible for up to $15,000 from the Fund if he or she had hired a registered home improvement contractor and the resulting problem meets certain criteria. Connecticut Paint and Thermal Coatings pays into the recovery fund each year making them a smart choice for your Connecticut Painter.
