    "I hired Chris to repaint my kitchen cabinets when I was remodeling my kitchen because it is less expensive than replacing them. Chris came and removed all the doors and drawer faces and took them to his shop to be sanded and finished. He came back to sand and finish the wall cabinets. He was very professional and protected my walls and countertops. He kept me informed every at every step of the process and had the job finished when he said and that the job only took a week. Chris is very professional and made sure my kitchen was usable through the hole process. I would recommend Chris to anyone thinking about a new look for their kitchen."

    Fences, Custom Fencing

    "We finally decided to look for someone to make repairs to our wooden fence that was damaged during hurricane Ida. After dealing with a few contractors that claimed my 5-year old fence needed to be replaced and not repaired, Speakeasy came by and said they can make the repairs. The repairs consisted of straightening about 10 4x4’s and replacing one that was snapped. The price to do this was outstanding just like their work ethic. They completed this work faster than expected without any issues. The work quality on these repairs is next to none. I would highly recommend Speakeasy Fencing for all your fencing needs big or small."

His pricing was very fair and he finished the job on time even with weather delay. I consider him to be very trustworthy and would highly recommend him. I will use him again in the future."

    "This was a very professional company. We hired them to repaint and refinish our kitchen cabinets. The crew did a fantastic job!. Every day there was a supervisor to check on the status of the job and to keep us updated. The crew was very clean and protected the surrounding walls and floors. The other areas of the house were taped off from the kitchen to prevent any dust from spreading. They worked hard and did a professional job! Would rehire them in a heartbeat. You will not be disappointed."

    "William was an absolute saint. I have had other roofing companies make promises and not follow through. I have had roofing companies knock on my door and felt in my gut they were being sneaky. I have even had other roofing companies say they can get insurance to pay for my roof but were not able to do that, we kept getting denied or only approved for repairs. William was fully transparent, and I could tell he was genuine and honest. He got my ENTIRE metal roof replaced through my homeowners insurance (I did not pay a dime, their inspector even found more things that could be considered storm damage around the house, and got to keep some money) and followed through on all his promises. I would recommend him to anyone who is considering getting their roof replaced through insurance. His crew was kind, smiling, and cleaned up my property soooo well! Office staff was friendly and helpful too!"

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.
