We selected Scott’s Painting Company to paint the interior/exterior of our church in Maple Heights. During our selection process, we knew we chose the right contractor right away! Scott met with our board and we were all completely impressed and confident that we had made the correct decision not only based on his presentation and his experience, but judged by his character and honesty. Not only did Scott and his crew exceed our expectations, but as a testament to his talents and job performance, several of our parishioners have hired Scott to paint their homes afterward. We highly recommend Scott’s Painting Company and wish him continued success in life and business. -- Pastor Bob
Sorry it is difficult to trust almost anyone in the trades. It is easier to do the work myself and not deal with strangers in and around my house. When I have to hire someone I tell them up front that I'll be checking every detail, pay extra to purchase the materials myself, and if they don't want the job - well good! I always fine someone who will work with me as I pay a bonus for that.

Exterior painting should do more than just look nice.  When done correctly, your fresh paint should help protect the rest of your home. From assisting in insulating your home from the sun’s rays to filling in cracks and sealing them, exterior home painting is one of the best steps in maintenance you can make for your house.  Realtors will tell you that painting your house is a sure way to add value and curb appeal! ​
So why not just paint your own home. I'm not a painter, so my wife and I take our time, buying the paint and supplies, and doing our own painting. Yes, we need to tape, and it's not perfect, but we get the satisfaction of seeing our completed work. Get the supplies, sliders for your furniture, and patience and go for it. That way YOU have control over the entire project.
I disagree with your criteria to hire a painter. A prompt returned call is nice but does not indicate the quality or fairness of the painter. As far as a written estimate, that should be more of a qualifier for the bid versus an evaluation criterion. I'm not sure one would have favorable results by hiring a painter on this basis. As far as the bidding process, change orders should ONLY be used if the customer requests additional scope (PMP 101). Angie's list should consider asking reviewers if/how much they were told to pay compared with the estimate. Unfortunately, there are a lot of contractors that are unethical and need to be accountable.

A qualified exterior house painter can walk you through the process of getting your house ready for a new coat of paint, from scraping and sanding to patching and priming. A pro can also recommend the best exterior paint for the job, whether your siding is wood, fiber cement, stucco, vinyl, or even metal. When it comes to getting the work done, your painter will arrive with all the tools and equipment needed to get the job done quickly, correctly and safely.
Not all people live where they can hire a painting contractor, like you describe. People who live in small towns can only hire painters who have a very small business, and do two or three paint jobs per week. In this case, you do have to be very careful, when you hire a painter, as we have several, in our area, who are out to make a fast buck anyway they can.
