Hire a Local Paint Contractor vs a National Chain

So, this is geared toward those looking to help and work with local businesses. We are hoping this will inspire you to hire a local paint contractor. We are a smaller paint contracting business specializing in interior painting, wallpaper, and cabinet painting located in Huntley, IL.

Although we look to grow, we love the fact that we can help people living in our area, other businesses in our area, some community groups, and non-profits in our area. 

350 project - Hire a Local Paint Contractor

The 3/50 Project

Save your local economy, three stores at a time. If half of the U.S. population spent $50 monthly in an independently owned business, their purchase would generate 42.6 billion dollars in revenue. For every $100 at these stores, $68 returns to your community through taxes, payroll, etc. If you spend it with a National Chain, only $43 is returned to our community. If you spend it online, NOTHING stays here.

Reasons to hire a local paint contractor

To be upfront, we have done work for national chains before, as they usually will get contracts for other national brands to do the remodeling nationwide.

But that is a different subject…we are here to talk about hiring a local paint contractor. Some of the reasons we give are:

  • The people we hire are from this area.
  • Each person we hire is given background checks for local, state, and federal backgrounds.
  • We train each person with the employees our customers rated as 5-star worthy!
  • Knowing your environment. We have had job sites with people from other states who don’t know how to fix drywall issues, such as smooth walls. (Almost half of the US uses texture surfaces, not smooth walls.)
  • As with the 3/50 project, the money spent here stays here.
  • We have a vested interest in doing a great job. We want your referrals and repeat business. When things get tough, we’re not closing and moving to a different state.

Use caution when hiring locally

We have given this example of knowing who you hire to our customers, but I don’t think we have ever put it on our blog/website. While we were looking to hire a painter a few years ago, we interviewed someone who lived here in Elgin. Everything seemed good until we did a Google search. His name and picture appeared at the top of the page: convicted sex offender. This same person had a bunch of people on Facebook that had left him reviews of great work, which is great for him, but as we’ll work in homes with all ages, by schools, home school families- we want you to trust the people that are working for us.

Use caution about who you hire when looking for a local paint contractor.

  • Are they insured?
  • Do they have workman’s comp insurance?
  • Who are they?
