If it’s the first time you’ve needed to hire a spraying contractor, knowing how to choose the best one for your needs can be daunting. We’ve put together some things to do and to look out for when you are trying to choose the most suitable onsite spraying company for your project.
Get more than one quote
Get in touch with several spraying contractors and ask for quotes. Reputable spraying contractors should provide these quotes free of charge.
Make sure that you provide the same details to each contractor so that the quotes you get back are easy to compare.
Remember that the lowest quote may not always be the best fit for your needs so consider the next few things on our list as well as cost.

Look for experience
Check how long the contractor has been in business and what sort of work they have completed in the past.
The first is important as any warranties that are offered will only remain valid whilst the company is still trading. A contractor who has operated repeatedly as different businesses in the past is likely to follow this pattern in future and won’t be able to honour any offered guarantees or warranties.
A contractor with experience in spraying the same sort of building or surface as the spraying project you have in mind is likely to be able to do a good job as they have past experience. This is particularly true for complex projects such as intumescent paint spraying.
Check trust signals
Can the contractor provide testimonials or quotes from past clients? A reputable spraying contractor should be happy to provide references which demonstrate their past work quality and professionalism.
A recommendation from another business is also an excellent trust signal: if someone is happy to refer a contractor to you, it is a sure sign of reliability.
Look for a professional contractor
A professional spraying contractor will have all the appropriate accreditation and insurance in place. Look for a contractor with accreditations such as:
- Safe Contractor
A professional contractor will communicate clearly, respond promptly to your questions, and demonstrate excellent attention to detail. These attributes should be clear to see in all of their communication with you, from their website and responding to your initial enquiry to providing a quote and answering your questions.
If you follow all of these steps, you should be confident in your choice and ready to hire the right spraying contractor for your project.
