Finding the Ideal Painter in Chicago

Below, we’ll look at the planning and considerations that go into finding the best painting company for your needs and why OnDemand Painters is the best choice in Chicago and surrounding Chicago neighborhoods.

Painting Project Considerations:

Before you pick the best contractor for your project, it’s a good idea to have a few things in mind:

Timeline to get the project completed

Do you have a specific deadline when the job needs to be completed?  A faster turnaround will most likely impact the price of the job, but due to availability it could also affect which contractor can take the job in the first place.   

Why OnDemand Painters:   We’re a flexible partner and will work with you to get the job done when you need it.  We can get you a quote in just 10 minutes and a crew on the job in as little as 24 hours.

Budget for the project

Getting the best contractor for the job doesn’t always mean you’ll spend the most, but it’s typical in this industry to pay more for experience and quality.  So if you have a tight budget, you may need to sacrifice on your timeline or scale back the scope of the project (#4).

Why OnDemand Painters:   We commit to being honest upfront about any costs or issues we see.  Once the job has started, if there are any surprises, we will work with you to define how that could impact the budget.

Any design or paint related preferences

If you have certain expectations around paint color, paint type, or design, it’s important to talk with the painting contractors about these things before you start the work.  You’ll be far happier at the end result and there won’t be any surprise increases in costs if the job scope starts to creep or the cost of materials goes up.   

Why OnDemand Painters:   We know the popular paint swatches and have years of experience helping our customers get the results they want.  We will work with you to get your house or business looking good and make sure it’s done right the first time.

Project scope

No painting job is exactly the same, so it’s important that you consider the details of your project so you get the result you expect from the local painter that you contract.  Here are a few questions for you to consider:

  • How many rooms do you need painted? 
  • What is the square footage of these areas? 
  • Do you have crown molding or do the rooms have any special architectural or design features that need to be considered?  
  • Do you have wallpaper that will need to be removed? 
  • Is there a risk of rot or structural damage that needs to be addressed before you can start painting?  
  • Do you want to include a deck staining or any additional painting in the project?

Why OnDemand Painters: We are a full service painting company that can do light construction, dry wall, and some structural repairs.  It’s all part of doing the job ri

Chicago Painters – What to look for:

Once you have your project more tightly defined, it’s time to find the right Chicago painters to get it done.  Below are some thing you should consider and look for:

Do they provide free estimates that are quick and work with your schedule?

This should be a given, but you never know…  Don’t waste your time with contractors who try to nickel and dime you just to give you an accurate quote.  Same goes for those that leave you waiting for days or even weeks to come spec out and give  you their quote.  

Why OnDemand Painters: We commit to getting you a quick quote and doing a quality job every time. 

Do they have a portfolio of projects and have specific ideas for you?

Ideally the Chicago painting contractors you consider for your painting projects will have done something similar to yours and come with ideas and expertise not just paint and paint brushes.   When you talk to them, explain the project and any specific things that may make it unique.  Ask them if they have had experience doing a project like this in the past and what they would recommend in their case.  

Why OnDemand Painters: We have a growing portfolio of projects right on our site and can provide more examples if needed. If you have a rough idea of what you want, but aren’t sure about specifics, no problem.  We’ll work with you to get the project done right.

Will they keep you informed of delays and unexpected costs?

Exterior painting jobs especially are prone to delays, because the painters must account for the weather.  If it’s too hot, cold, rainy, windy, or even too humid it may not be advisable to paint, because the paint could have problems adhering to the surface. Other times, unexpected problems like mold, rot, termites, or structural problems could be uncovered after a project has started. If any of these situations occur, a quality painting company will stop the project temporarily to address these issues and work with you to get the best outcome.

Why OnDemand Painters:  We strive toward honesty and integrity and pride ourselves on excellent communication both before, during and after the project.

What is the painting contractor’s expertise?

There are several different types of painters in the Chicagoland area including interior and exterior painters, handyman or specialty paint contractors that do faux finishes on walls or ceilings and those that focus exclusively on commercial painting projects, to name a few.  Once you figure out the scope of your project and any other specific needs, look for a contractor that will best match up.

Why OnDemand Painters:  We are a full service painting contractor and can do any type of project including interior and exterior painting.  It’s rare that an issue arises where we can’t do a job, because we don’t have the ability or expertise to do it.  If you have something very unique you need done, let us know and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you.

Does the contractor clean up after the job is finished?

The last thing  you want to do is have a professional house painter leave your property looking worse than when they started!  You will also need them to remove their construction materials and put all leftover paint back in the containers so that it doesn’t get into landfills, which can be quite expensive for homeowners if left on their own.

Why OnDemand Painters:  We take pride in the work we do and we believe that part of that involves the clean up afterwards.  We commit to making sure that our painters always clean up after themselves and leave your property looking better than when they came.

Will they repair damaged soffits, drywall, or trim while on the job?

Painting contractors sometimes do not take the time to fix any dents or holes in your walls, but it’s important that they are repaired before paint goes over them otherwise the repairs will be visible after you have a fresh coat of paint on top.

Why OnDemand Painters: Our commitment to doing the job right means that we will do the necessary prep work on all surfaces and any fixes that come with it.  If you know of something major that needs to be fixed, let’s talk about it.

Do they have liability insurance and are they licensed and bonded?

Since most people don’t carry homeowner’s insurance when doing renovations and painting jobs at home, make sure the painting contractor has a liability policy that protects both parties in case something were to happen while they are working.

Why OnDemand Painters: Our painters are well trained and are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something happens. 

Will they come to your area of Chicago?

Chicago is a big place, so just because they say the serve Chicago doesn’t mean they actually have a crew near you that can do the job.   It may be obvious, but it’s worth asking whether the Chicago painters you are considering will come your neighborhood or Chicago suburb. 

Why OnDemand Painters:  We likely have a crew near you, but if for some reason we don’t currently, we’ll be honest and let you know.   In addition to Chicago area zip codes we also serve the following suburbs.

Fence Painting & Staining in Chicago, Illinois

In addition to exterior painting of your house, we’ll also help keep your fence looking new and lasting longer through painting and staining. Painting your fence is the best way to protect its surface from rain, snow, sun rays and harsh weather conditions that can damage wood surfaces over time.

Staining on the other hand helps you bring out the natural beauty of your existing wood without necessarily painting it all white. Stains come in several colors and you can choose one that complements with your home exterior design color scheme as well as selecting an appropriate tone for emphasizing details such as knots on different parts of wooden fencing boards.

If you want both protection against weathering along with accentuating features such as knots then simply use paint first followed by staining afterward since stains don’t tend to last as long as paints.
