Typical Services Painting Contractors Provide

Home painting companies provide a wide array of projects, but not all companies provide the exact same options. Some businesses may concentrate on interior paint services, while others perform special interior paint jobs or decorative services such as murals in the living room.

Home Interior Painting Services

A selection of house painting contractors will complete interior paint jobs. That includes priming and painting walls. Experienced painters usually mark off and otherwise prep the room to prevent paint from splashing on other surfaces and perform edgework to ensure an attractive completed outcome.

Should you hope for painters to paint other surfaces, including ceilings, baseboards, or molding, ask businesses about these jobs before you work with them. Some may not provide the services and may charge extra.

Exterior Painting Jobs

Exterior house painting businesses paint the outside of homes, such as siding or other outer wall surfaces. Speak with potential painting companies about the type of surface that needs painting, as this can change the scope and price of the job. Some painting contractors will take on large or tall houses and some won’t, as not all companies have the workers and scaffolding necessary to paint two- or three-story houses.

Creative Residential Painting Services

Decorative residential painting jobs involve decorative elements, such as specialty highlighted walls or murals. Should you desire something like this, speak about it first with potential contractors to find out if they might provide the work or suggest an artist who can paint alongside them.

When talking to possible house painting contractors in Bedford, explain what sort of painting you’re looking for. The company can tell you whether or not they provide those projects.

Average Charges Related to Professional Paint Companies

The sort of painting services, preferred brand or sort of paint, and measurements of the surface needing paint all play a role in how much interior or outside paintwork might fetch. Painting over uneven materials —such as brick—or bold colors that might require multiple coats can cost more than painting over pastel or flat areas.

Typically, interior house painting jobs totals about $3.50 per square foot. Exterior house painting totals $1.50 to $4 per square foot, usually.

Why Height Increases House Painting Costs

When paint contractors have to reach higher areas on a residence to finish services, the total can go up. This is because paint contractors must erect scaffolding and use ladders and other tools to reach taller areas. That is additional manual labor, which increases prices. Some businesses might also reimburse employees a premium to account for riskier work.

If painters have to work above 8 feet, for example, the cost can rise by 30%, on average. Jobs that necessitate working above 19 feet can increase prices by around 120%.

Some Other Factors That Impact Home Painting Service Costs

Height and overall size aren’t the only factors that may impact price. Location makes a big difference, as painting jobs cost more or less depending on the city and state you’re in. The choice of paint also impacts price, as premium or high-end paint comes to more. If employees must do more prep work or repairs than anticipated, such as replacing rotten siding boards or double priming over a dark wall, the price may also go up.

Reach out to prospective painters in Bedford to gauge what your gig may cost.

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.
