-Before you do anything to call up or email a person you have found who specializes in exterior painting, make sure to do a little search into their background. Make sure this painter has a happy customer base, has plenty of references because you do not want to be next on a list of people he or she has disappointed either with their painting work or by committing a crime such as taking your money and not delivering some or all of the mutually agreed upon work.

-After making sure you have chosen a reputable contractor be sure to communicate very well with him or her in regards to exactly what kind of work you need done by them, Tell them all about the exterior of your home, what kind of paint is on it currently, the condition of the old paint, the surface area that needs to be painting, how tall your structure is or how much of the exterior needs painting if not all.

-After communicating the basics with your painter then discuss costs.
