    "The men from Galo roofing came to my house to demolish and haul off an old play house. They finished the job in about two hours, as estimated, they cleaned up everything, and did an excellent job. I plan to hire them again to perform some repairs on a storage shed this spring. I would definitely recommend Galo roofing!"

    "Mr. Lopez far exceeded our expectations on pricing. He was very friendly and courteous, and worked around our schedule as well. He did fantastic work, painting walls and ceiling and crown moldings in our living room, kitchen including cabinets, the entry-way, stairway and upstairs hallway. He also provided a sub-contractor to repair dry walls at an excellent price and also totally satisfactory results. We have more painting to be done in the spring and there is no one else I'd even consider for the job. Top marks across the board."

Later they provided an estimate via email. I got on their schedule quickly, and they were finished in less than a half day.

    "I am so thankful I hired Henry at H&M Contractor for my bedroom and bathroom project. I live in a 1984 manufactured home so the walls are not drywall. They replaced the bedroom ceiling, painted my bedroom, and bathroom, installed crown moulding, baseboards, trim, and 3 nice two panel doors that they made work in my home and some other miscellaneous work. My bedroom and bathroom look awesome now. I am very happy with the results. Henry and his crew were always prompt, courteous, and professional. Henry communicated with me every step of the way. The whole project was drama free which I appreciated. They care about their work and want you to be happy. They are fantastic and I plan to use them for future projects."

    "We have worked with Aaron primarily on roofing (multiple repairs over the years to fix random leaks with holes in shingles and flashing, and more recently complete re-roof on our home.) Aaron tried to help us with an insurance claim for the reroof (which was ultimately denied, but Aaron tried). For that reroof, Aaron notified us when a price increase on shingles was going to happen the week before we were scheduled to be done, and made sure we got the shingles ordered at the reduced rate before the increase took effect. Saved us several hundred dollars, if not more. He also recently fixed some siding that a prior contractor, who replaced and repainted most of our siding, missed and/or did not properly handle. During that time with the other contractor, Aaron went out of his way to help us make sure the other company was residing to code/recommendations, Also, if communication is key for you (as it is for me), Aaron is one of the most communicative people I have worked with."

They did a great job with that project so we had them do a follow on project of having them paint the interior of our 2000 sf home. This was also done well. Victor is professional and very enjoyable to interact with which is part of the reason we will seek out his services for future projects. We do recommend VMart to others seeking the services they offer."

    "E3 Painting crew (Leo+2) completed a "rescue" painter/handyman project at my home including interior of 2-car garage, walls/trim & ceiling plus did a beautiful job of repainting exterior garage door. They were professional, fast & organized, cleaned up ... all this for very reasonable pricing. Satisfaction beyond homeowner expectations, partly because they took on a project that had been badly botched by a different contractor, and I was having a hard time finding a qualified company that was willing to "fix" a sad situation. The quality of their work restored my faith in Home Advisor service providers as well, so this is why I'm giving them a 5-Star review. Thanks E3 Painting for the great "re-do" of our garage arts & crafts studio and grandkids playroom space!! Greta."

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.
