Yes. Getting the Certificate of Insurance directly from the contractor’s insurance agent will provide you with assurance that the coverage is current. In addition to registering with the New Jersey – painting contractors are required to adhere to the following guidelines:
- The painting contractor is required to maintain statutory Worker’s Compensation insurance.
- The painting contractor must carry at least $500,000 Liability insurance per incident in order to be registered with New Jersey.
- If the painting contractor utilizes sub-contractors – they all must also meet the same insurance requirements.
If a painting contractor is unable to produce the appropriate insurance documents, do not hire them as you may be responsible for any injuries or other accidents that occur.
Painters who will give you a quote over the phone or via email without meeting you or visiting your property should be avoided. This is very unprofessional.
We do not give estimates over the phone. There are too many variables to simply give an accurate quote. We will meet you in person, ask you specific questions to gain a full understanding of your painting and wall covering needs and then provide you with a written detailed estimate including our detailed preparation and painting procedure for a typical home.
We provide each homeowner we meet with our written processes and this allows them to easily understand the cost of painting or installing new wallpaper or wall coverings for their home and to compare our proposal with another proposal.
