    Drywall & Plaster, Interior Painting

    "We were extremely satisfied with Oscar's work in our Master Bathroom and Kitchen. The bathroom cabinetry and baseboard work (painting, caulking and attaching quarter round trim) turned out beautifully. They also did excellent work totally refinishing our kitchen butcher block island (sanding, staining and applying a polyurethane sealant). They give very careful attention to detail and cleanliness (paper lining throughout bathroom and kitchen floors; also hanging plastic sheets in the kitchen to contain dust and debris). Their quality work is outstanding and we plan to use their services again in the spring for outdoor pressure washing and staining projects."

    "So pleased with the services provided by Painter1. I would highly recommend them. The proposal was laid out room-by-room and every item was individually priced. It was very transparent and easy to follow what was being charged for each room, celling, closet, etc. We had three different bids and Painter1 came in with the lowest bid. At the time we chose them they were offering a 15% discount. They have great customer service and response times and no hidden fees or add on charges. Charles White did our paining, if possible ask for him- he was amazing to work with. Charles went above and beyond to help us with a remodel of a house built in the late 70s. We ended up painting all of the interior, interior-trim, exterior, doors, and closets basically everything was updated. He was a true professional in helping us with colors, explaining lighting- assuring the colors we chose was actually going to be what we wanted. His craftsmanship is an art. Charles brings a little southern charm and 20 yrs of painting experience. Youll be thrilled with the results- honestly this house looks brand new after he was done painting."

    "We had a paint job performed last summer on our very very large home which was in need of a repaint job. My wife and I have only the highest accolades for the work relationship, communication, and quality of materials used. Professional is the word that exudes thorough our complete experience with this company. We have had many many compliments on the exterior paint job from our friends and family. It has been a year now and the job has held up and continues to please us. Several friends have asked us who painted our house and we always are more than happy to tell them of our experience. We highly recommend them for even a difficult house or painting project. As I mentioned before, our house was not simple, It has two full floors with full attic and basement and it is very large and high, making this a job indeed. We had several other painters that had checked the job out and ran away in fear. However, this was no problem whatsoever for this company. They are good workers and professionals that are great at what they do!"

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.
