    Painting, Drywall

    "I was very pleased with the amount of time, and detail Carlos his son, helper and Dad did with refinishing our kitchen and laundry area cupboards. They were polite, always asking if I needed any touchups etc as they proceeded with the job. They were on time and finished the project when they said they would. I would recommend them, and next winter we are going to get a quote to paint the entire interior of our home."

    "Denis Rodriguez with Mr Doctor Painting is exceptional in every way. Superb work ethic, always on time, meticulous in his attention to detail, and extremely thoughtful. Ours was a challenging job because it was a small space overstuffed with furniture and boxes of stuff. In order to paint a wall, Denis and his assistant had to move everything out of the way, paint, then move it back. Nothing was broken or damaged, despite the intense hassle. And the final result is as good as it gets. Really great work. I recommend Denis and Mr Doctor Painting without reservation."

    Rivera's Quality Painting Logo
    Desert Hot Springs, CA·

    "We hired Rivera twice - first time was for painting nearly the entire interior of our house 4500+ sq ft (included walls, doors, trim, and ceilings which the previous owner had painted a very yellowish off white). Riveraâ s crew did an excellent job on that sizable job, so I hired them about a year later to paint the exterior of our home to update the brown to a lighter, more modern color. Both jobs were done within a reasonable budget, and timing was fine and as promised - the interior took a little extra time only because they ended up spending extra time to sand the doors (of previous dark brown oil paint that was being repainted bright white) so the new paint would adhere properly - the doors look fantastic and glossy.. I have recommended Tony to others several times, and I will hire them again when I have any future painting jobs."

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.

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.
