A contractor who knows these steps and which materials are required is essential to the longevity of your structure. Always ask for a list of materials that will be used on your project.

Always make sure all contractors are bidding, based on the same criteria. Often the lowest bid will cost YOU more in the long run!

Once a project is complete, the left over paints may be left for you, if you choose to keep them. Ask your professional how to safely store these products so that future touch ups will be possible. To dispose of these paints call your contractor, local paint supplier, or local recycling center to find out how to safely discard these materials.
