Trusting the care associated with your home to someone is an intimate endeavor. You may know that you have rooms you want painted, a deck you want restored, or know that the exterior of your home needs updating.

Before you start your search by asking friends and family for a referral or searching the internet, it’s important to understand the difference between a painter and a Painting Contractor.

Simply, it’s kind of like the difference between an Optician who greets you at an optical and helps you choose frames best suited for you versus an Optometrist. The Optometrist is a Doctor, the person who will perform your eye exam, check for issues and also write a prescription for any needed correction. Because of the Optometrist’s training, required licensing and expertise, they have a better overview and ability to meet your eye care needs.
