Google reviews are THE BEST WAY TO CHOOSE A PAINTER!
Choosing a painter (or any tradesman for that matter) is hard work.
You want a quality job, a person you can trust around your home, someone that you can communicate with, and a fair price.
Asking friends isn’t a bad way to find a good painter. But what your friends needed and what you need could be very, very different.
That’s why Reviews are so helpful.
It’s possible to find a person who had similar painting needs to you, who found a really great painting specialist for their needs. If, say, you have an interior full of cracks and peeling paint you will be looking for a 5 star rating and positive review for an expert in those problems.
But beware! Some reviews are fake.
Google probably has the most trustworthy reviews. It’s very hard to ‘game’ Google
Reviews. And if you get caught ... that’s the end of you, on Google anyway.
Other reviews can be found on Facebook, Product Review, Amazon, and many others.
You can find genuine reviews (and ignore fake reviews) by looking out for the following warning ‘suss’ signs.
So check out Google Reviews and any others, but watch out for fakes.
And after you meet a prospective painter the very best review you can get is a list of happy customers you can actually phone and talk to.
