What Are Some Common Things You Can Hire a Painting Company to Do?

House painting businesses provide a wide range of services, but not every company offers the same options. Some companies might focus on interior paint services, while some perform special interior paint jobs or creative jobs like murals in the kitchen.

Home Interior Painting Jobs

Many house painting contractors will complete interior paint projects. This includes priming and painting walls. Professional painters usually mark off and otherwise prep the room to prevent paint from spilling on other areas and complete edgework to guarantee an attractive completed outcome.

Should you hope for painters to paint other areas, including baseboards, ceilings, or molding, ask contractors about these jobs before you employ them. Some may not offer that type of work and might charge extra.

Outdoor Painting Jobs

Exterior home painting professionals paint the outside of residences, including siding or other exterior wall surfaces. Speak with possible painting companies regarding the kind of surface that requires painting, as this can change the scope and price of the project. Some painting contractors will handle big or towering homes and some won’t, as not all companies have the scaffolding and workers needed to paint two- or three-story homes.

Creative House Painting Work

Decorative house painting jobs includes decorative elements, such as specialty accent walls or murals. Should you desire something along these lines, talk about it first and foremost with potential businesses to learn if they can provide the job or recommend an artist who can paint with them.

Providing as many specifics about your potential project as you can helps painting businesses in Austin decide if they may be suitable for the job and offer an accurate estimate.

What to Look for When Contracting a Painting Company

While there may be lots of painting professionals in Austin, some won’t meet your house painting requirements. Take steps when evaluating painting professionals to make sure that the potential contractors on your short list meet your needs.

Research Prior to Contacting Them

Begin with the info listed on HomeAdvisor, and then move on to do additional research about painting professionals you’re interested in. That may involve:

  • Browsing the company’s webpage to see which types of jobs it offers and whether it ensures service.
  • Browsing any online portfolios to see projects the business has performed.
  • Reading additional feedback on Google and social media.
  • Requesting family and friends for suggestions or if they are familiar with a company you’re interested in.
  • Checking with the Better Business Bureau to guarantee the professional does not have any open issues.

Ask the Right Questions

Once you reach out to possible contractors, ask many questions. Question what kind of work a company provides and how they screen employees. Ask about timelines and budgets to make sure the business is available when you need them. Guarantee the business utilizes the kind of paint you want and ask whether or not it has the necessary equipment to complete the job, including scaffolding, if needed.

Ensure Professionals Are Insured and Experienced

Make an effort to find a business that has experience with jobs that coordinates with your project. Somebody who has only painted interior walls might not be aware how to cope with exterior paint projects, for example. You ought to also always double check to make sure contractors you employ have insurance.

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.

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.
