    "Angelina is very professional. I needed some accent walls added as well as some refreshing of some old paint. She picked up the paint for me, came in and finished quickly. She did an amazing job with my space. I also have animals and she was so sweet about them being a littler overbearing when she first arrived. I couldnâ t recommend her enough!"

    "I have had Adrian paint for us on three separate occasions. As of now, he has probably painted every room in my house, including painting all of our oak trim white including crown molding, windows, railings. he does a great job, is very easy to work with, and very trustworthy. I even gave him a key to Home so he could paint while I was at work. Adrian was originally recommended to me by an interior designer, and I have also recommended him to other who have been very happy with his work"

    "Started the job when they said they would. Made me aware of a leak in the outdoor faucet pipe. They could have ignored it and I wouldn't have known about it and they could have just put the siding up over it. Then they fixed it. After they finished painting, a corner of the house was damaged by squirrels. Once the squirrels were caught and removed, they fixed the wood damage and repainted, with no charge. Had some finishing up issues, Jose took care of them all. I think the house looks great."

    "On time ! Very important. I had the doors, trim,ceiling and walls painted.I cannot believe my house looks so beautiful and is transformed. A fresh coat of paint on my doors made them look new and saved me a ton of cash because they don't have to be replaced. The entire team of painters were amazing...even the owner was on the job, cleaned up after them selves, very careful when moving furniture and everything was put back - pictures, metal little picture frame with beloved Disney picture and hung the surround sound speakers. I inspected the house on hands and knees. Perfect everywhere !"

    "JC Painting treated the wood paneling in the interior rooms of the house with oil-based "Kilz" and then painted all rooms with a high quality paint, off white on walls and white ceilings, leaving the original wood doors with wood framing. The job was very labor intensive, requiring much taping and care that the paint did not seep under the tape. The 4-man crew was terrific, always on time, starting early and working late in the day. Each worker had the ability to cut the paint line cleanly without getting paint on adjoining surfaces in nearly every area of the house. They were excellent!"

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.
