[I ask because that is exactly what I do, except I don't have a lot of small print. I have a low price guarantee. I will meet or beat any price from a qualified contractor, or give the customer $100. A qualified contractor must be a member of a trade organization (I don't specify any particular group), must submit a written estimate with the same materials and scope of work, and must be insured. That's it.]
Love the idea Brian, thanks for sharing. I assume it's printed on your marketing material? Do customers comment about it when they call for an estimate?

Painters have always needed to be licensed in MI. It is nothing new. The government has just made it more difficult to get a license and might actually start enforcing it. If there is is enforcement it might hielp weed some out, but also HO's have to start caring. I have only been asked once if I am licensed or not, and they did not really care one way or the other.
I know licensing is nothing new. That is why I said " Here in MI they just started enforcing paint contractors "....... I think with the new licensing requirements that presenting the fact that you are licensed to the customer, is an advantage. Builders especially, as they can be fined for using unlicensed subs. As for homeowners caring, I try and make them care by letting them know I am licensed to do the work and maybe you should check to see if Joe Blow Painting is?
