Yes. Quality painting contractors have multiple references from past clients. We believe that a painting contractor should provide you with a list of at least 25 references – this prevents the contractor from giving you 3 or 4 “references” that are actually not real customers but friends or associates. Worry Free Painting provides a list of more than 100 references you can call. If a contractor is unable or unwilling to provide at least 25 references, that should be a warning sign.
