I would say pretty much any contractor would agree to use Behr paint for a 60 house deal - course, they might or might not put a company (as opposed to manufacturer) warranty on it - I would not.


I would say most of the Angies Listed Painters might be too small for this job - you probably need to google for commercial painting companies, then check for any reviews on AL or Yelp or such. And for that size job, I would certainly put in a contingency that is you find their performance is substandard at any time, the contract can be terminated after the house they are working on painting at the time. I would also require a single test house or two be done initially before you commit to the 60 house deal. That way if they can't do a decent job on the first house (which they certainly will do their best work on because it is a performance test leading to the rest ofthe 60), or start slipping as they move on, you can shorten the contract.


Bear in mind, unless giving a LONG window for completion, they will have multiple crews working it,, so one might do good work but another (particularly if hired just for this job) might not, so will need frequent drive-bys to be sure they are keeping up to snuff - and not doing things like working on wet surfaces or failing to prep the surfaces or such, which the specifications should spell out provisions to protect against. Might well be worth having an architect/engineer form prepare a a specification (along with the needed listing of colors and locations on each house) to keep them toeing the mark.
