    "I hired Tom to replace the stairs that go from my garage up to my kitchen door. The steps I had were not up to code (steep and uneven) causing me to fall a few times (I have a bad back and chronic pain). He gave me an estimate to replace them that was right in line with what I was hoping for. The new steps are pressure-treated wood, and now I have 3 steps and a landing. So much better! I don't even need my cane or to use the railing to haul myself up like with the old steps! I've asked him to replace my basement stairs, too, and he may even do my attic insulation. A great contractor! I'm glad I found him!"

    "I would highly recommend T&A Painting. Great patin job! Efficient at setting up appointments and notifying you. I even called for a small touchup spot after they were paid and I was called back the same day and the next day the painter was there. It is so nice to have work done by someone who takes real pride in their work."

    "Mike and his crew were very professional and presented a positive appearance. It was easy to talk with him and he is quite knowledgeable in many facets of the job to be done. He doesn't take shortcuts, but he doesn't try to add on additional steps that other larger contractors try to sell. I have have or had homes in NC, NV, CO, UT, and NY. I have dealings with contractors like Lowe's, Home Depot, and other large contractors and subcontractors on everything from roofs down to tree roots; Mike will definitely be on my future projects. I'm sorry that I didn't find him before. He's also prior MILITARY, and that may have a lot to do with it."

    Roofing

    "We noticed a leak in the ceiling of our garage - it was early Nov in upstate NY - cold, wet, windy - we were lucky that the leak was away from the living areas of the house - Elite's folks came out promptly to assess the problem (damage to the roof decking above the garage) , gave an estimate that was reasonable and gave me a window of time when they could do the work that was within a few days - the only caveats were my own insurance claim issue and the weather. As soon as I was ready with my issues they put us on their schedule and were on site 2 days later - in spite of an unexpected snow fall of 5-8 inches that left the roof covered with snow. They cleared the roof of snow in the area of the leak and began the process of peeling back the roofing to track the full extent of the leak. The damage was more extensive than initially thought but they worked to fully ID the problem and made sure everything was structurally sound before making the work area water and weather tight for the night. This took until 7 pm ... about 2 and half hours after dark. The next morning they returned around 7:30 am and worked through early afternoon to get the damage areas fully repaired and the roofing replaced. The damage that was not view-able until the roofing was taken apart was more severe than what could be seen before hand. The original estimate obviously could not address this and there was an increase from the estimate to the final invoice. I believe the increase was more than fair. These folks were prompt, polite, and neat - including cleaning up the area after work was completed. The price was right and work excellent. Over the 4-5 days since the work was done we've had rain and there is absolutely no sign of the problem that existed before . I would be saying 'great job if they did this in reasonable weather conditions. The weather was miserable and they still did the work with an exceptional result. This was a great relief for us ... thank you to Paul and Vlad and the Elite crew."

    Roofing

    "My husband came home from work at 5:30pm and noticed immediately a problem with our home's roof. The top of the roof ridge vent was ripped off and shingles were missing. He immediately got on the phone and was connected with Royal Construction's owner Angelo Mitchell. He was at our home within 10 minutes. The forecast was for heavy downpours of over two inches the next day, and it did that day and the next day after that. That very night Angelo came to our home he provided a temporary patch to cover the hole in our roof. It kept our home from further damage. We decided then to hire him to replace our roof. His crew was amazing. They're very hard workers and very professional. They found the needed to replace the decking due to mold and age of the wood decking. Angelo gave us a fair price and the work was completed the same day. We have a large roof and they actually had two crews come and complete the work in one day. We are very pleased with the results. Our neighbor commented how nice the new roof looked and what a hard-working crew we had to do it. I would highly recommend this company."

Frequently asked questions

Painters usually price a job by the square feet of the project. Sometimes they’ll include flat fees for fixed expenses, like overhead and permits.

We make finding a painter easy. Simple use our directory to find a painter. Here you can browse local pros, check their reviews and do your first screening without ever having to call. We’ve also prescreened all the pros for you, to give you peace of mind.

Interior painting makes for a doable DIY project. You can save some money and get a real sense of accomplishment by doing this yourself. And, with the right prep work – covering, taping and scraping – it’s fairly forgiving. But it takes a lot of time to move furniture, tape trim, prep the surface and cover your floor, let alone apply the actual paint. Instead, save yourself the time and hassle and find a local interior painter.

Leave exterior painting to the pros. Not only do you need to worry about the type and quality of the paint, you’ll also likely need a ladder and considerably more prep work. You’ll likely need additional equipment like ladders, scaffolding and possibly a paint sprayer. It’s almost cheaper to just hire a pro. Talk to a local exterior house painter about your project.

  1. Do your research. Understand what to expect and what to look for in a pro. Look at paint types, prices and costs.
    1. Interior home painting costs $1,000-$2,800
    2. Exterior painting costs $1,700-$4,100
    3. Painting a ceiling costs $150-$350
    4. Painting cabinets costs $350-$1,200
    5. Trim painting costs $500-$1,500
    6. Calculate paint coverage
  2. Call pros for site inspections and estimates. Always get three to five estimates.
  3. Check references, compare quotes, look at past work. After you have estimates in hand, do one final pass to compare the contractors.
  4. Sign a contract with the pro of your choice. You might need to make a down payment, usually 25% to 50% of the total project cost to cover material costs, but not all pros require this. Don’t pay for the entire project upfront.

  • A complete inspection. Each pro takes a walk around your home to evaluate the condition of your current paint, the size of the job and any obstacles for accessing the site. They do this to see how much prep work they’ll need and estimate how long the job will take. The more thorough the inspection, the more accurate the quote.
  • Color consultation. Expect each contractor to have varying color options and suggestions. However, you have the final say.
  • Listen to the pro – they’re experts after all – but don’t get pushed into a color combination or finish type that you don’t want. Understand the different exterior paints or interior paint choices before your pro arrives.
  • A rough estimate or complete quote. Finishing contractors vary here. Usually, they can quote straightforward projects on the spot. But some may need to take it back to their shop to run numbers and give you a detailed estimate with costs broken out. Neither method is better than the other, but just make sure to get multiple quotes.

  1. How long have you been in business? A long business history helps you avoid shoddy companies. It’s hard for a service business to stay in business if they don’t do good work.
  2. Are you licensed and insured? Not all states require a license for painting homes, but many do. Always use one that’s insured.
  3. Do you belong to any professional organizations? You’ll find many online, like the Painting Contractors Association or the Finishing Contractors Association?
  4. Do you have other work I can look at? Always check a portfolio or, in the case of painters, it’s better to look at work they did a few years ago to see how well it’s held up.
  5. How long will the job take? Get a rough estimate but get it in writing.
  6. How many people are in your crew? This is especially important if you work remotely. More people generally means more noise, but they’ll be done faster.
  7. Will I be in the way if I’m home during the painting? You usually won’t be in the way, but this question helps you understand what to expect while they’re working. They’ll need to lay down coverings and do a lot of prep work.
  8. Do you guarantee your work? Never hire a painter who doesn’t guarantee their work. This often means they’ll rush the prep work, since peeling never happens right away.
  9. What type of paint do you use, and how long is it rated to last? Different rooms need different paint and the exterior needs exterior paint. It comes in different grades with different guaranteed lifetimes.
  10. Can you supply a written estimate and contract? Never use a painter who isn’t willing to put his work in writing.
