All paint manufactures come with a product warranty.

Not all contractors offer, and stand behind, a workmanship warranty.

Paint manufacturer warranty are useful when a product fails however worthless if the contractor doesn’t provide a workmanship warranty against defects related to how the surface was prepped and the product was applied.

 It’s no secret that most paint jobs fail as a result of poor workmanship. Over the years, we’ve seen contractors using wrong materials, following incorrect application techniques, and applying paint under improper weather conditions.

Considering that the majority cost of a whole paint contract is labor, the workmanship warranty provided by the contractor is much more important than the product warranty offered by the manufacturer.
