The Best Painting Companies in Broward County FL Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 


The state of Florida doesn't require painting contractors in Broward County FL to have any state license, so there is no state standard for competancy among painting companies.

So there is no guarantee that any particular commercial or house painter in Broward County FL is even competent, is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all commercial painters and house painters in Broward County FL who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as research phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, proof of liability insurance and workers comp insurance for your protection, good complaint record, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.



Things To Look For with Painters in Broward County FL

Preparation Work Should Be Done By The Painter
Preparing the surface that's to be painted (prep work) is critical because a poorly prepared surface won't hold paint properly no matter how good the paint is or how well it's applied.  The best painting companies in Broward County will do thorough prep work.  Preparing the surface can include pressure washing, possibly with a product that kills fungus and mildew, hand scraping surfaces, sanding, filling holes with caulk or epoxy filler, treating rusty nails, and removing wood rot. And prep work is labor time so the cheap painters in Broward County often promote cut-rate pricing because unknown to you, they're not preparing the surface like they should, and this can mean the paint begins to flake and chip within months, or comes off the next time your home or building is power washed. 


Paint Quality
Price quotes from painting companies in Broward County can differ and one reason might be the paint they're planning to use because paint costs can vary widely from $12 to $45 per gallon.  And it's not just about the brand. Every brand, even the best ones, have starter grades that aren't meant to last as long. In fact, the starter grade of a high quality brand will not perform as well as a higher grade paint within a less expensive brand.  These cheap paints can fade noticably in as little as a few months.

The best painting companies in Broward County will specify in writing the
1) Brand
2) Grade
3) Product number 

Getting that information allows you to see why price quotes might differ. Also, some painting contractors water down the paint in order to use less of it. It's another way that cheap painters in Broward County can appear like a bargain when they really aren't. So make sure the written bid includes the number of gallons to be used, and if it seems low compared to someone else, be sure to ask why.

The type of paint to be used also influences price quotes. Flat finish paints may be water based, where semi-gloss can be oil-based or latex-based paints. Oil-based is considered more durable so the sheen will last longer than for latex but oil-based paints should be used minimally in Florida due to the humidity which makes it more susceptible to mold, making latex paint usually the better option in Florida.  Many painting companies in Broward County FL have experience working with organic paints, no-VOC and low-VOC paints (Volatile Organic Compounds). These options can cost a little more but some consumers prefer these paints as more environmentally friendly, or better for interior painting since they can have less of a smell with less off-gassing of chemical components.  Other options include elastomeric paint, which can provide increased durability and flexibility but again, can be problematic in the humid Florida climate since if moisture gets behind the paint, it can't penetrate through to evaporate leading to bubbles.  A more recent alternative to elastomeric are so-called hybrid paints such as Sherman Williams Loxon XP with combines some of the durability of elastomeric with permiablity, being a semi-permiable paint that can prevent bubbling by allowing moisture evaporation.





Paint Application
Many painting companies in Broward County use only brushes and rollers, insisting that this traditional method means a longer lasting paint job because the paint adheres to the surface more completely, and allows for better detail work.  Other painting companies use airless sprayers, a modern method that can cut the time it takes to paint.  Some painting contractors might use a combination, starting with airless sprayers and then going over it with brushes and rollers.   


Color consultation
The best painters in Broward County will have seen different designs and color combinations over hundreds of previous painting jobs that they can share with you. They may also know what color combinations are among the latest trends in painting.   Some painting companies in Broward County provide virtual computer color consultation so you can really see the potential result of your choices. These devices have virtually eliminated the guesswork involved in optimizing your new color scheme.

If you have custom colors done, ask the painting contractors to provide you with a custom color card with actual samples of the paint that was used as a record for the future, including what brand and the exact mix formula. Then if you need touch ups in the future, you'll know the exact match for your existing paint. 

Labor
The owner of the painting company is a state-licensed painting contractor and may have years of industry experience, but what about the crew who will actually be doing the painting? The best painting companies use experienced, long-term employees and journeyman painters who know how to apply paint in a way that lasts for many years. Cheap painting companies often hire day laborers off the street with dubious levels of experience and whom the painting contractor doesn't even really know.


Faux Painting  in Broward County (Including Faux Finishing / Decorative Painting in Broward County)
Faux painting or faux finishing are terms used for a wide variety of decorative painting techniques. Sometimes the intent is for the painted surface to look like some other material such as marble (faux marble) or wood grain (faux wood). Decorative painters in Broward County are also who to call if you're looking for muralists (mural painters). These faux painters in Broward County can paint scenic murals, or ones that create an optical illusion (trompe l'oeil) such as painting the illusion of three-dimensional depth on that flat wall or ceiling.

Some painting contractors do offer faux painting services or decorative painting services in addition to their house painting. A company that is decorative painting or faux finish painting only, need not be a licensed painting contractor. However, all decorative painters in Broward County FL recommended by The Prime Buyer's Report still needed to show our research staff proof of general liability insurance, and if they have employees, proof of worker's comp insurance as protection for you.

Faux painting is more than just faux finishes and decorative finishes. Decorative painters in Broward County can create texturing effects too. Sponge painting (or ‘sponging') is one commonly used method of adding texture to fresh paint.

The cost of faux finishing & decorative painters in Broward County varies greatly depending on the skill and experience of the faux painters, the type of faux finish desired and on the complexity of decorative painting effects. Many good decorative painters in Broward County will want to see the space to get decorative painting treatment, in order to give you a detailed estimate for the faux finishing or decorative painting you desire.

Question To Ask Painting Companies in Broward County FL Before Hiring 


Before you hire painters, ask the following questions about their process, experience and qualifications:

• How long have the painting contractors been house painters or commercial painters in Broward County? (This is key because different places have varied rainfall, sunlight exposure, salt water spray, which can all affect choices in types of paint, amounts, or methods and substantial experience in your geographical area specifically means a greater chance they will be familiar with these aspects.)


• How many clients have the painting companies serviced in Broward County?


• Can the painting companies give you names and numbers you can call as references? (All painting  contractors in Broward County FL bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their customer references called  by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• How much experience do they have in the same kind of project as yours, such as same size of job, interiors versus exterior painting, residential versus commercial painting?


• How do they determine pricing?

• What application method will they be using, sprayers or brushes and rollers, and why?


•  Can the painters vouch that all their employees sent to your property are legal to work in the U.S.? (All painting companies bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• Do the commercial or residential painting contractors in Broward County have active workers' compensation and liability insurance? (All painting  companies bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already shown proof of insurance to our research staff.)


• Will the painting contractors provide written estimates and if so, will it detail the exact brand of paint, grade of paint within that brand, number of gallons to be applied, and number of coats to be applied,  allowing you to make accurate comparisons among bids? For the same purpose, will it specify how many hours of prep work will be done, what tasks are included in that prep work, i.e. sanding, filling small holes, removing rot, etc.?


• Do they give a written guarantee on their work, (aside from any manufacturer guarantees) and if so, what does it cover and for how long and can you see a copy?

• If the existing paint contains lead as is typical with paint applied many years ago, is the painting contractor EPA Lead Safe Certified for safe removal of the old paint and will they be following the required protocols to ensure your safety and avoid causing you legal liabilities from improper removal of lead paint?


• Do they do all of the work with their employees or do they hire subcontractors or anything? If so, what are the names of those subcontractors so you can research them?

• How long should it take to finish the painting once they begin?


• Are there any measures you should take before the painters show up (moving furniture, covering valuables, patching nail holes, etc.), or will the painting contractors provide such services?

• Does the owner personally hire and train their painting crew and how long have they worked for the company?



• How and when do the painting contractors clean up the job site?



• Will you have access to your home while the painters are working?

 •  Is the individual you're speaking to prior to signing a contract (and who might be making promises) the same one doing or managing the project, or will it be handed off to someone else and if so, who?

• Will they provide a written contract and will it detail the amount of paint to be used, the brand, the grade, the product number, the number of coats, and the number of hours to be spent preparing the surface?

When you've chosen  the best painters in Broward County FL for your specific needs, make sure they are licensed in good standing by the state of Florida or by Broward County. (All painting companies bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their county or state license verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
