    "Highly recommend Nick and Dandi Home Restoration. Needed gutters installed plus additional repairs to a door frame and siding due to water exposure. Estimate was reasonable and additional cost of wood for unexpected and extensive fascia/soffit repair was minimal. The gutter installation team did excellent work. Hard working, professional, detail oriented and responsive. Final Result: Very satisfied and highly recommend."

    "I had the pleasure of working with both Chad and Frank on our interior home painting project. We had our entire downstairs done by them which included 2 story living room, coffered ceilings, tray ceilings, and kitchen cabinet painting to name a few. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the end result! They were great to work with, and their crew was also very nice. Our next project will definitely be going through All Pro Painting!"

    "Adrienne's Artistic Accents were incredible. She went above and beyond with her services. She saved us a lot of extra expenses we did not need at the time. We were in need of interior paint for our house. We signed an agreement on Tuesday and they started the following day on Wednesday. She texts daily when they started and endedà  forà  theà  day. The paint job looks like 10 or 11 people worked on the house, when in reality it was only two. Adrienne was extremely knowledgeable regarding the paint schemes in the house, and really guided us in the process. Very pleased with the amount of work they were able to complete in a week's time. Everyoneà  that has visited our home has shared how wonderfulà  it looks. A true testamentà  of a job well done.à Â"

    "I am so thankful I hired Henry at H&M Contractor for my bedroom and bathroom project. I live in a 1984 manufactured home so the walls are not drywall. They replaced the bedroom ceiling, painted my bedroom, and bathroom, installed crown moulding, baseboards, trim, and 3 nice two panel doors that they made work in my home and some other miscellaneous work. My bedroom and bathroom look awesome now. I am very happy with the results. Henry and his crew were always prompt, courteous, and professional. Henry communicated with me every step of the way. The whole project was drama free which I appreciated. They care about their work and want you to be happy. They are fantastic and I plan to use them for future projects."

    "I recently hired Oleksii to convert my small shed into an office, handling both the drywall installation and painting. From the outset, Oleksii impressed me with his punctuality and professionalism. He meticulously installed the drywall, ensuring every panel was perfectly aligned, and the seams were flawlessly taped and sanded. His painting work was equally impressive, with a keen eye for detail that resulted in a bright, evenly-coated space that's both inviting and ideal for long hours of work. Throughout the project, Oleksii was not only technically skilled but also exceptionally friendly and courteous. He was proactive in communication, always keeping me updated and eagerly addressing any questions. His recommendations on materials were spot-on, emphasizing durability and aesthetics. Oleksii completed the project on time, maintaining a clean and organized workspace throughout. His dedication and friendly demeanor made the entire process enjoyable and stress-free. I am thrilled with my new office space and highly recommend Oleksii for his outstanding quality of work and professional integrity."

    "We had multiple jobs around our home, listed below. Andres is honest, fair, prompt, communicative and just a lovely person to work with. He makes sure all of the details are wrapped up and takes well-earned pride in his work. We have already hired him for another large job and have quite a long list of future jobs as well. Just an absolute delight to work with him. As to the work he did, while we called Andres about painting our kitchen cabinets, he ended up doing several of the projects on our list. In addition to painting cabinets, he installed a vent hood, removed old and installed new backsplash tile, removed a large framed TV cabinet/mantel and replaced it with a beautiful stone fireplace surround + mantel, repaired and repainted our large front porch, replaced an exterior door that had rotted AND pressure washed the entire house exterior. EXCELLENT experience."

    "We did two different projects with VMart. They hung and taped drywall in our one car garage. They did a great job with that project so we had them do a follow on project of having them paint the interior of our 2000 sf home. This was also done well. Victor is professional and very enjoyable to interact with which is part of the reason we will seek out his services for future projects. We do recommend VMart to others seeking the services they offer."

He completed the job quickly with fair pricing. Great job. I am looking forward to working with again. He performed caulking around my kitchen cabinets, countertops, and bathroom accessories. He installed a new door sweep and weather stripped the front and garage entry door. He patched the drywall in the bedroom and painted. Clint P. Wake Forest,N.C."

    "We checked out 4 other painting companies before deciding on Southwind Painting, Inc. Howie (owner) was very easy to work with. He was upfront when giving us an estimate. He & his assistant were on time every morning & got right to work. They were friendly & courteous & would check with us every day to make sure we were happy with their days work. The job (small foyer, living room, kitchen & eating area, hallway & all the trim work in every area) was completed in 2 1/2 days. When finishing up, they did small touch ups on things that were not expected so the job looked finished & complete. And just as side note, Howie did offer the lowest estimate but also offered more work for the cost. Definitely would hire this company again."

    "I wish there were more than 5 stars! I couldn't be happier with Mario and his partner's work. They were on courteous, on time, brought high quality paint, which they included in their low price, and painted beyond my expectations. They smoothed out the walls before painting, and also painted trim and baseboards. Their work is shear professionalism and done to perfection! They clearly take pride in what they do! They wear booties, protect your furniture and carpets, and have hands like surgeons. I would go on and on - but will stop here and say that if you land on Mario Osario, you should look no further! Do yourself a favor and hire him! He is AMAZING! I am thrilled with my choice of Osario's painting and will recommend them every time someone asks about a high quality painter!"

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.
