Below are some of the most frequently asked questions by our clients.

Q: How does your pricing compare to other paint companies? A: We determine the price of the bid based on a thorough preparation and completion of your project, using the proper equipment, materials and techniques. Since we are very thorough and ‘detail oriented,’ we take the time to protect your furnishings and landscaping, and we only buy the highest quality materials and equipment we are usually higher priced than your ‘once over/slap-it-on and get it done’ type paint company. We invest the time to train each and every painter and supply them with all the proper tools they will need for the job. We would be happy to go over our pricing, in detail, to help you make an “apples to apples,” comparison with other licensed painting companies. Q: Do you have references? A: Yes we do. We have painted in almost every area of Whatcom and Skagit Counties. Since we pride ourselves on each and every job, we have a reference for you or a job site for you to visit, no matter where you are located. Also, visit our references section and feel free to ask for additional references. Q: I’ve heard that painters are a flaky group. Will you stay on the job once you begin? A: Yes, we will work consecutive week days until we finish your project. Each of our crews is trained in proper preparatory techniques, painting techniques, equipment management and proper safety techniques. Since we don’t have one crew for prep work, one for painting, and one for trim or finishing touch-ups, there will only be one crew on your job-site. That one crew will be knowledgeable on each part of the job, so that nothing is missed from start to finish. Q: Who does the painting and who will supervise the job? A: We have a thorough screening process, including a detailed background check before we hire each painter. Then we spend time with each individual painter to specifically train them in proper techniques, safety and equipment management. Since we rely so heavily on our reputation as a quality painting contractor, we only use our own professionals for each job. We always plan ahead to avoid any scheduling issues, allowing us not to ever rely on sub-contracting out our work. Q: What kind of paint do you use? A: We use Parker Paints, Benjamin Moore, Pittsburg Paints, Cloverdale/Rodda, Kelly Moore, Sherwin Williams and Pratt & Lambert painting products. We also use Amaron Industrial Coatings for our industrial projects and Floods or Superdeck for our decks and stains. However, the brand of product we use depends on customer preference and each specific project. Since we stand behind each and every job, we will only use the highest quality materials on your project. Q: Are you licensed and insured? A: Premier Coatings, Inc. is a registered contractor in the state of Washington. In order to be painters in Whatcom County and be a member of the BIA we must be licensed and bonded with General Liability and Workers Compensation policies. Because of our high safety standards and training we have the lowest accident rating that a painter can receive from the State of Washington! Our license number is PREMICI926C2, which can be verified at or by calling the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries at (800) 647-0982. Q: Are you a local contractor? A: Yes. The owner Joshua Griesse went to Western Washington University where he received his bachelor’s degree in Finance and Economics with a minor in Chemistry. He started Premier Coatings in 2003 during college as a way to finance his education. He graduated in 2006 and has been focused on providing quality painting and customer service ever since.
