    Exterior/Interior Painting

    "Very efficient! We decided last minute to hire painters instead of doing it ourselves. We had cleaners and movers already scheduled and a short timeframe. We contacted Zach through Angie s List on Friday evening, he called within 15 minutes. We set up an appointment for an estimate the next morning at 9am, he had a crew there to start at 12 noon. They worked long days to get the job done by Tuesday at 3 pm. We had the main floor painted about 1300sq ft, including ceiling, trim, doors, windows & walls. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, closets, hallway, split level entry, living room and dining room. We have a little clean up to do around the edges, but over all we are very happy with the job and were quite amazed it was done in time!"

    "Carter and John communicated well. They let me know accurately when they would be here. They removed a pair of French doors and filled the hinge and latch spaces in the door frame. Their work is very neat. They also cleaned two skylights. They are friendly and gentlemanly and are a joy to have in the house. I asked them if they would like to build handrails for just two steps. They directed me immediately to a pair of handrails on Amazon that is far more attractive than I had dreamed of. I have ordered them, and they will be installed next week. I look forward to working with this company again."

    "This is a very nice young couple who does such beautiful work. I had a horrible, overgrown flowerbed in the front of my house that I have been overwhelmed with for at least two years. They came out quickly to view the project when I requested a quote and gave me a reasonable price. They were able to come back in just a few days and do the work. They trimmed the shrubs and rosebushes and cleaned out all the briars and leaves in just a couple of hours. It looks beautiful after they finished. I will definitely be hiring them again in the near future."

    "We hired Custom Painting to do exterior and interior work on our 4000 square foot rustic timber home, located on a steep lot. Often working up to 40 feet off the ground, Dario and his crew did an excellent job staining and sealing siding, trim, decks, soffits, and window frames. Inside, they sanded and sealed natural pine wainscoting, wood-wrapped windows and doors, railings, and a 25-foot central tree trunk post. We were impressed at the meticulous way the crew worked, leaving not a single ding or scratch on any of the adjacent drywall. Nothing was broken, and everything was left tidy. The crew were always courteous, professional, and punctual. And much quieter than any painters we’ve worked with previously! Communication was excellent – they notified us in advance when they’d be working, and regularly reviewed finished work and planning options. Pricing was very reasonable, and fully understood in advance. We highly recommend Custom Painting and will definitely use them again in the future!"

    "Michael truly went above and beyond to get our house looking FANTASTIC! We have hardiboard siding that got really grime-encrusted over the four years weâ  ve lived here and our screened in patio was nasty due to it serving as a makeshift chicken coop for six months. Now that Michael has finished pressure washing our house it looks impeccable! An impressive transformation honestly. He was very responsive to texts and easy to work with and initially came out to give us an estimate on the cost of painting our home. My husband and I greatly appreciated his honesty when he said the paint was actually still in decent shape and the house just needed to be pressure washed. His quotes, both for pressure washing and for painting, were more than fair. He was able to schedule our house for pressure washing very quickly and showed up in a timely manner for the job. He was incredibly helpful and assisted me in moving some things out of the way that I couldnâ  t move by myself due to a wrist fracture. He stayed until the job was done: the end result is a fantastic looking house and a very happy client. I very highly recommend Michael and his company Muse Paint & Power Wash!"

    "From start to finish, Juan and his crew were professional and flexible and showed a strong desire to make us happy. Pricing was very fair. At one point I changed my mind on color of my cedar shingles and had them repainted. Even with the extra work the job finished 8 days early. This company worked harder for me than any other contractor I have ever hired and I am beyond thrilled with the outcome. My home looks brand new. They were very clean and courteous. I will hire them again and would not hesitate to refer them."

    "Working with Travis Coyne was a pleasure. His professionalism in communications, arriving on time, and actually doing exactly what he told me he would be doing was so refreshing! He painted stairwell and interior walls that required a lot of ladder work and cutting in around doors, etc. He also painted my faux wood ceiling beams in my living room and they turned out great. I would definitely rehire Coyne Painting and recommend Travis to anyone who needs a 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.
