Paint Contractor Huntley, IL

Written by David | March 6, 2024

If you are searching for a painter- you have landed in the right spot! know I have have used those same words for plumbers, electricians and septic contractors. Personally, I think D’franco Painting & Wallpaper is the best paint contractor in the Huntley area.  Here is a video that goes into one reason that we are different!

Is there a difference between painters?

As much as I hate to say this, the answer really is – It depends. Can there be that much of a difference? O Oh yes! . These are the top questions you should be asking:

  • Are you insured?
  • Do you use Subcontractors or have employees?
  • Do you have workman’s compensation?
  • How soon can you do our work?
  • What kind of paints do you use?
  • Do your crews speak English or can communicate clearly while the project is happening?
  • Have you done ____ before?
  • Does the company have any on line or Google Reviews?
  • Finally, how much will it cost?

It doesn’t matter if you are looking for a paint contractor in Crystal Lake, Geneva, Pingree Grove, or South Elgin.  The right person for the right job is really up to you.  Just make sure you are comparing apples to apples. If you have one estimate that includes paint and the other does not, or if one person is quoting dutch boy and another is using Sherwin Willaims Emerald paint- there will be a difference in cost.

How should I pick a Painter?

I am speaking on behalf of D’franco Painting & Wallpaper, and what my wife looks for when we have to hire a contractor for our home.

Do they have a website, google reviews or referrals from the local paint stores? How long they have been in business? How much experience do they have? Most importantly – do I trust them?

Are you covered? We have to carry several types of insurance to protect our employees, our company and you the customer. In Illinois, some of these insurances can be expensive. Workman’s comp for example- if someone is hurt- who pays for that injury of it takes place at your home? Other trades need to be licensed – painters right now do not.

How much experience do they have? We pride ourselves in experience and our online reviews.  We want you to know how many times we have done a project. All you have to do is check out our Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and of course our website.

Do they have their information on their vehicle when they show up? Most of Our work vehicles have our logos, and company information. I like to see when people show up, they take pride in who they are as a business. It helps to establish trust as well, as you know who is in your driveway or parking in front of your house. Your neighbors can relax knowing who or what the car is in your driveway or in front of their house as to who is parking out front. (We do however use Subcontracotrs, that you can see on our team member page.)

Best ways to search for Paint Contractors?

Obviously, google is the top of the list but there are other ways to find good, reputable, and quality people. Don’t limit yourself when the “best painter near me” is not actually right in your home town. Good contractors travel. Google also varies search results so a top ranked contracotr may not sho wup today but will in 1 hour. Do they have google verified? That is another great thing to search for.

  • Have you asked your local paint store, or a few in the area? I usually ask 3 people
  • Ask people you know, work with or family
  • I have called people from the number on a work vehicle before
  • There are a lot of people using Facebook as well
