    "I have had the pleasure of working with Chris Mikaska for 3 years for various projects around my home, and I must say that I am thoroughly impressed with his work. Chris is a true professional, who is prompt, communicative, and honest. He completed a wide range of projects for me, including faucet replacement, several light fixture installations, drywall repair, exhaust installation, door repair, door replacement, painting, and many others. Not only did he do an outstanding job with each project, but he also fixed bad work done by others. I even trusted Chris with my garage code so he could come in while I was away to do the work. He took great care with my property and made sure to clean up after himself, which was greatly appreciated. I was especially grateful for Chris's help in getting my home ready to sell. His work helped me sell my house quickly and for a great price. He made sure that every project was completed to the highest standard and exceeded my expectations. Overall, I highly recommend Chris Mikaska for any handyman services you may need. His professionalism, expertise, and attention to detail are truly exceptional. If you want high-quality work done right, Chris is the person to call."

I had the ceiling in the entire house patched and painted along with painting all my trim and baseboards white. The ceiling had a spot that wasn't cooperating with the patch work and Sadot stuck with it and made sure it was done correctly. I am extremely happy with my experience and the work he did. I will definitely call him again when I need more painting done."

    "My wife and I needed 8 sheets 4'X10' of drywall, tape and mud done to our kitchen. Daniel came out and gave us a price (in line with everyone else) and 1 day to install. When Daniel and his guys were here, they took the time to prep, paper off the floor, plastic over cabinets and plastic off the room to prevent dust from getting in adjacent rooms. Put on drywall, tape and mud to a primer ready quality, cleaned up, vaccum and wipe floors clean with water. The whole process started at 7am and completely done by 2:30pm. Ceiling and walls look great and I would definitely recommend them to everyone!!"

    "Rich, the owner, was very professional on the phone and arrived promptly for the appointment. We had just moved into a town home the previous day and were anxious to have all the white walls repainted in color. Rich quoted us a very reasonable price for the huge job of painting 10 rooms, including a 2-story living area. Although it was the beginning of his busy season, he was able to schedule a team to start the job the following morning. The painters arrived promptly and were very professional. They worked the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend to get the job done. The place looks great and we are very happy!"

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.
