Getting your home painted is a big investment, and you want to know that it’ll be done the right way. At Crash of Rhinos, we create a detailed proposal folder for each and every job, because we want you to know ahead of time what you can expect from our team.
In this blog post, we’ll run through what our proposal folder actually contains, why it’s important, and—most importantly—what it looks like.
The 5 things our proposal folders contain
#1. Scope of work
Our scope of work contains a broad overview of the project, what we’ll be painting, and a breakdown of the process. We’ll also include a timeline for the work, and notes on what you can expect from us.
#2. Information about the paint
We’re proud to use high-quality Dunn-Edwards paint on every job we do. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for many other painting companies; they’ll often use “house” paint, which is often a blend of leftovers they can acquire on the cheap.
Dunn-Edwards is specially formulated to handle the intense UV radiation we get here in Phoenix. It’s tough, durable, fade-resistant, safe, and it’s perfect for stucco homes. We’ll share more information about the paint in your packet.
#3. Notes about the warranty
Crash of Rhinos has an outstanding warranty. Exterior painting companies are required by the state of Arizona to provide a 2-year warranty on their work. Other companies typically stick to that.
Not us. We offer a 7-year warranty on our exterior paint. We’re able to do this because of the high-quality paint we use and our superior prep process—which helps the paint better adhere to your walls.
All of the details about our warranty—including how to use it if your paint starts to fade—is included in our proposal folder.
#4. Insurance documentation
Never hire an exterior home painter who isn’t licensed, bonded, and insured. An uninsured painter or uninsured company is a major liability for you and your home. If the worker is injured on the job, they can come after you, the client! If the worker breaks something, or makes a mistake, there’s nothing to protect your property.
Worse yet, some home painters will tell you they’re insured, but not back it up with documents. But, unless you ask for proof and they provide it, you can never be really sure if that insurance is up-to-date, what exactly it covers, or if it’s even real.
Of course, we’re fully protected and insured—including with workman’s comp—for your protection and ours. In our packet, we’ll include documented proof of our insurance policies.
#5. Detailed contract
Finally, our proposal folder contains a detailed contract that breaks down what everything costs, what you’ll be getting, and more.
If you’re happy with everything else in the proposal, and you’re ready to get started, complete the contract and send it back to us.
