If I hire a painter to prime and paint the doors, because the old paint was peeling, is it included to paint the door and the wood trim around the door? The painter I hired just painted the door without painting the trim around it. Now I have all the trim around 5 doors still peeling. Is the painter has to responsible for that?
I would say yes, as this is what I would include on the proposal. Did you get a written proposal or bid for the painting? Does it include the door frames?
It is very important to get a fully detailed written proposal (contract) and understand all that is included before agreeing to pay for the work. The proposal is the only prof you have to what is included or not included in any paint job.
