1. Ask them for an estimate, but also ask them how they made that estimate. Ensure that it is not just an eyeball guess. Ask them how they may include their mistakes in the estimates. Look at the time frame for which they have sent you the estimate.

All painting contractors are not the same and some are more experienced than the others. Contractors that have years of experience at hand charge higher than the ones that have less experience. If a contractor is charging you less even though he is in the market for a long time, you better check the quality of work he is providing. The painters who will charge you more money for painting kitchen walls have a reasonable explanation of doing so – they know what they are doing and they are more professional. On the other hand painters who have less experience at hand do not know how to factor in all costs, and in the process they will charge the job most inaccurately. This eventually results in low quality jobs. In such cases it is possible that the painter uses low quality material, he does a rush job, and he doesn’t even return your phone calls if a problem exists after the work is over.
Check your contractor’s references. For that you should ask about his previous clients’ phone numbers. In case he doesn’t provide the numbers, it is better that you don’t hire him.
One of the best places to ask for contractor recommendation for painting kitchen walls is your local paint store. These people have a lot of insight on the professional level, expertise and quality of painting contractors. Everyday they deal with painting contractors with whom they speak. The local paint store people can tell you how well certain contractor is doing or how they deal with their clients etc.
It is important that you buy the paint yourself. This is because not all contractors are honest, and unfortunately when they will get the paint for you they may buy low-grade paint, while charging the same amount for their service. A low-grade paint costs less and in turn the contractor will lower his bid. Even though you see less money, you won’t notice the low quality paint. Thus it is best to buy your own paint. Don’t count on your contractor for painting kitchen walls every time!

"They scheduled an appointment with me to meet at my clients business that needed exterior paint work and were there on time. They also had no problem working with the paint brand that i had specified and even gave me some helpful tips on finishes for my project. A few days before the job was to be done, they called to let me know that rain was in the forecast and offered a reschedule date. Great paint job, Great communication, and Very polite A+ (Jamie K. from San Francisco) "
