    "Pete and crew just completely repainted the interior of my 4000+ sq ft new home in Boulder. We communicated well via FaceTime while I was still in CA, and then throughout the completion of the job. He is meticulous in his prep work and attention to detail. I've never been happier with a painter! Pete was very honest about what needed painting but also about some areas where he felt the existing paint was just fine. I went much lighter color in most areas and he did as many coats as necessary. It also helped that he and his crew were really nice guys. I unexpectedly overlapped with them in the house for a few days due to cancelled travel due to COVID-19 and we managed to keep our social distancing, still communicate when needed, and all do our our work (I work from home) Thanks!"

    "Juan and his team were a pleasure to work with. They removed 3000 sq ft of popcorn ceiling, fixed drywall and repainted our entire home leaving the new home we bought that hadn't been updated for 30 years looking brand new. Their attention to detail and willingness to come back until the job was perfect was just what you need when you're remodeling a home. Highly recommend Super Painters in Denver!"

    "Gina and Mark from Fix. completed several carpentry and electrical tasks at my home. They were very knowledgeable, professional, thoughtful and courteous. Everything from the artwork they hung, the closet cabinetry they installed to the exterior flood light replacements they did were completed with accuracy and perfection. Mark definitely went above and beyond with my bathroom ceiling fan. The motor had been making an annoying noise for months. Instead of just replacing the entire unit, he took the time to inquire with the manufacturer regarding its warranty. They sent me a new motor replacement for free which he installed. They also thoroughly cleaned up after themselves. I highly recommend this awesome duo."

    "Luis did a great job. He took down a bar in the kitchen counter, opened up the wall attached to it, fixed something inside and sealed everything up again. The places looks as new, it is impossible to tell that there was some work done on that wall. Luis was also very friendly and thoroughly explained the work that was going on. Would definitely work with Luis again."

    "Alfredo was very prompt in responding to our needs and also very knowledgeable. He repaired our window cranks, installed quarter round in our kitchen and painted it, repaired two doors so that they open and close better, and varnished all our wood doors. He was very friendly at all times and a pleasure to have around."

    Sandra N. in December 2018


    "We hired AAB to paint four rooms in our home. They were prompt and paid attention to the small details, which we appreciated. I also appreciated that the owner of the company is involved in the inspection and work."

    "When I first bought a home, I thought painting would be the easy part of remodeling a house. Ha! If you want a quality painting project from a quality builder, these are the guys. Nate and his team are fast, they are efficient, they are cost-effective, and they will save you so much time and the project will look so much better than if you had done it yourself. In our remodel, Nate helped us paint walls and ceilings along with painting, sanding, and sealing baseboards and trim. Without hesitation we'd hire them again!"

    Peak Professional Painting, LLC Logo
    Lakewood, CO·

    Exterior Home or Structure - Paint or Stain

    "My time with peak pro was a great experience for a pianting project. My house was badly in need of a paint job since we moved in 2 years ago. Justin and his design team were a huge help in picking colors since we had no idea where to start. They came out and brought color samples and asked me questions about our style and what we thought we were looking for in order to find the perfect colors for our house. They did great and we love the colors. When it came time to paint the prep work ended up taking longer than expected but Daniel and Miguel did not lack in hard work to do it right. By the end of the project the 3 deck, siding and trim looked so great I had them do my interior which turned out awesome! They were very clean and efficient inside not cutting corners at all. They removed all outlets and light fixtures to be sure and do a thouorough job! Very impressed with the service and quality of work for a very fair price! Of the 3 bids I received they where in the middle of the road when it came to cost. Not the cheapest or the most expensive but fair!"

    "I hired Rhino garage floors and the owner Nathan, came out gave me a bud and I chose to hire him , he came out the first day to grind my concrete surface and explained the importance of this step and that it had to be done first before epoxy coatings could be done. I had no idea about the science of it all. Next day he came back out to make sure the surface was clean and ready to coat, and that's what he did. The epoxy coating and the vinyl chip coatings where complete, and look and felt amazing. The next day he came back out and did the polyaspartic clear coat on the top to finalize the job , all I can say is wow. My floor looks completely different from before! It really does make the entire area look and feel complete. This was an amazing experience."

Logan was very good about keeping me informed via emails and texts regarding the timeline. I recommend this company for your painting needs. He also mentioned that they repair drywall"

    "Firstly, its a local business, which I always appreciate. Second, my job was super tight, and they still took it! I had a few rooms I needed done on a single, specific day. Luis and his painters delivered. Luis himself is very responsive, which made setting things up really easy. On the day of the job, everyone arrived promptly and got to work. The final result was great, and after the touch ups, perfect. I will absolutely use them again."

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.
