    Hiring a licensed and insured painter

    Painters & Decorators

    How can I double check that a painter or painting company is both licensed and insured? Do they tend to also come with references?

    "Any decorator worth their while can supply you a copy of their insurance certificate and will supply you details to get references fro previous jobs and clients.
    Most decorators are happy to supply these if asked for.

    Hope that helps Claire@G&M"

    "nope! only if the project is under the guide line for that preference, which means if the materials are expensive or discounted to get off the shelf to hand or if the budgets and completion is way off as was agree at the beginning of the contract"

    "Not sure what you mean by licensed but insurance can be checked as there should be a policy document/certificate with the details of what’s insured you can ask to see that . Good tradespeople can always provide references

    "You can ask them for proof of insurance and they should be able to show you a hard copy or digital copy and they should be able to supply references upon request"

    "I usually give all my clients a copy of my insurance certificate will ALL my quotes sent out. It’s something I regards as a necessity! If I do any dodgy work my clients can claim on my insurance, so what does that result in? The answer...
    I’m meticulous in anything I do, I’m neat and tidy in clients homes and always diligent. Ask for insurance details"
