Let’s take a look at those terms and why they matter as you search for someone to tackle your upcoming paint project.


What it means – Just like any insurance, having an insured painting contractor means that if something goes wrong with your project, they are covered for any damages to your home or business. Ask to see your painter’s insurance and do not hesitate to call their insurance company to be sure their coverage is current and the limit is high enough to protect you and your home.

Why it matters to you – Hopefully nothing goes wrong when it comes to your painting project. To be safe, your painter’s insurance will cover damages to your home, or unfortunate mistakes they ma encounter. This insurance also covers any injuries that may happen on the job site and ensures that you will not be liable to cover medical bills or health issues incurred at your home or business.


What it means – A certified painter has received special training on how to safely handle special-needs projects such as lead paint. They will have the training and know-how to safely tackle your home’s projects and ensure the safety, beauty and air quality of your dwelling or business.

Why it matters to you – If you have any lead paint, it is essential that you choose someone who is certified to handle it, especially when dealing with interior paint. Talk to them about their training and methods so that you are comfortable with the work being done.

Before deciding on a Sarasota painter for your project, be sure to do your homework and ask them about their training, methods and insurance. Ask to see examples of their recent work if they’re not already available online. Be sure to get a copy of these documents on file and save all estimates, price quotes and communication from your painter.
