It is a very common practice for Painters to ask for money before any work starts. They will tell you that it is for materials. Don't fall for this, alot of people have been taken by painters who will do not do a good job.'
Our payment policy is as follows:
Payments may be made by cash, check, master card, or visa.
Payments are due when:
First ½ when job is ½ complete. This is when the pressure washing, scraping , caulking, and priming are complete.
Second ½ when job is 100% complete. If it is not possible to complete a walk through for any reason within 3 days of completion 90% is due and 10% may be held until the walk through and punch list are completed.
If other payment arrangements are needed we are happy to try to accommodate these prior to work beginning.
This hopefully protects both parties involved.
Never pay before work has been done!!!
