What to look for in your contractor Sacramento?

 What to look for in your contractor Sacramento?

When looking for a contractor, whether it is for painting, remodeling, plumbing etc., informed customers will go through an interview process. But not all interview processes are the same. Some are looking for qualitycommunicationdiligence, and some are just searching for the right price.

 But how do companies decide on their price? 

 Two main factors go into a contractor’s price: material costs and labor. However, not all companies estimate their labor in the same manner. At Brooks Painting, we account for all facets of a job. One of the most important facets is prep time, specifically, what do we need to do before we start painting? Is there dry rot? Drywall repair? Sanding? Scraping? Caulking? All of our preparation procedures are included and detailed in your estimate. Our main goal is to ensure that your home is a “Sound Surface” before painting commences.  

 When considering your estimates and trying to decide which company is providing you with the “Right Price”, make sure that price includes and details what you want done. If your estimate does not include a detailed scope of work, in addition to a description of their process, how do you know what you are paying for? 

 Do your homework and ask questions. Make sure you understand what is provided and that it is communicated with you. After all, it is your home and your project.  

If you are looking for a reputable painting contractor in the Greater Sacramento Area, Brooks Painting is here to help you with all your painting needs. Let us provide you with an excellent experience and show you how contractors should work. We can help you with your interior & exterior painting, cabinet finishing, and commercial work. We work in Solano, Yolo, Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado Counties.  Call us at 530-753-5074 or visit our website to set up an estimate appointment.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

I wanted to have my kitchen cabinets painted but knew that that was a job that required skill and expertise. I called Brooks Painting and the experience from start to finish was perfect! Everyone I dealt with was personable and good at their jobs. They spent time answering questions, explaining the exact process, and did the work precisely as promised. They even did a few other small jobs (repairing and painting 2 water damaged ceilings) to perfection. And everything was neat and clean when they left! And the cabinets – better than I could have hoped for. Esteban is a master craftsman who was meticulous in every aspect of his work. The finish is smooth as glass with no imperfections. I couldn’t be happier!

Brooks Panting Inc. just finished painting the exterior of our house. The crew did a terrific job. The house is a mid century modern with redwood paneling and an unusual amount of trim work. The Brooks crew was efficient, the quality of the painting was exceptional and the work was completed on time! Because of the age of the house several panels needed to be replaced. Brooks had the expertise to closely match the new paneling with the old paneling. I would not hesitate to recommend this company. They are professionals!

We chose Brooks Painting based on their excellent reputation. It was an excellent choice! We had them do a complete exterior and almost complete interior painting of our two story house. They were done separately, while we were out of town. We are very pleased with the quality of the work. They even fixed up a few mistakes made by a crew that painted a portion of our interior ceilings a month prior (removal of asbestos popcorn ceiling), at no extra charge. Cleanup was great, also. They repaired some dry rot that was uncovered (extra charge, but worth it), and they even moved furniture back into place as well as put back the curtain rods that I had taken down, which wasn't expected. I highly recommend them, and will use them again for any future paint jobs.

Very professional, I appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was taken care of for my house! I really liked that Jaime stepped up and told me not to paint my front door like the house and then chose a color that worked great. Thank you!

Very professional, live up to their billing! [The] company was very cooperative, on top of everything. [They] followed through with their commitment.

My house is so beautiful now…great work. Courteous, prompt, awesome work.

Hiring Brooks Painting was an easy and professional process the whole way through, from the estimate to the completion of having my very high walls edged, where I was unable to reach them. Crew Leader Eric was prompt and super capable, which was a relief since he had to maneuver and climb a very tall ladder. He was also in the process of teaching a newer painter and I admired his positive and encouraging manner. In addition, he was willing to respond to my requests with ease. No regrets here! The edging looks amazing and only took 4 hours to complete.
