    "I am Nancy Brown, I live in Hoffman Estates, & I own a 2 bedroom condo. I wanted to express my deep appreciation to Angelo Riviso, {Angelo's Painting} for making my dull and boring home into a master piece, elegant & beautiful!! His excellent professional knowledge of how to decided the best matching colors for each rooms, and the best contrast to beautifying my home. Than he will give time to sort out what you really want so ultimately its your decision. Just to give idea of how he was everyday, he'd come in @ 7:45 am, smiling and asking me how I was or how your weekend was? He has a great personality even early morning! I would make a fresh pot of coffee, & than put on the At & t music. You could hear him singing & whistling in the background, so you could feel how dedicated & enjoying hard work, he is in improving my home to making it a master piece!! He's been painting for 30 years and it shows in everything he does. I was only going with the walls, but he said, "It would make a big difference" and he was so right with his suggestion. He cleaned the ceiling and used Classic White for the ceiling. It was awesome to look at and I actually cried when I saw it!! I was hooked after that and just let him do his master piece. My home looks and feels like a brand new home, and its so gorgeous that I am already purchasing new furniture for dining room & living room. His prices are so extremely reasonable that when you hear them, you say no way, & then you think that the paint isn't part of estimate, but, it is!! And they are outstanding prices. What Angelo did: Painted Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Hallway, Bathroom, Master bedroom & Vanity, Ceiling, Walls,& Trim, 2 Closets, and 2 window Sills. Also, I am having him back for another painting job, which is the guest bedroom, and for the very tiny master bedroom bathroom!! Than after that I'm having him beautify my 4 doors front and back. In conclusion: I want to say that I would never have anyone else touch my home except Angelo. He is a gentleman and inside and out knows he's stuff to making your home beautiful inside and out!!"

    "Had our roof replaced and went with dark gutters and downspouts. Was planning on waiting til spring to have the house painted, but the 60 degrees days we had this past week, I figured I’d try to see if anyone was available. NR painting replied almost immediately and was out the very next day for a free estimate. Noe was amazing to deal with, he gave great advice on colors and bombed out the house in 3 days. Phenomenal customer service and my house looks amazing. Absolute perfection. My neighbors haven’t stopped asking me for his number. Price was more than fair compared to what some of the neighbors paid for other painters. I will definitely be using NR painting in the future."

    "Owner, Marty, was wonderful to work with and so was his painter, Corey. Communication was a breeze and every thing was done professionally. Both owner, Marty, and Corey, the painter, were cordial, responsive, and professional. It was a pleasure doing business with Marty. They were also cooperative since I requested the work be done in a certain way and they agreed. I wouldn't hesitate to call them again if I need more painting done. This time, the job was on the small side - painting large kitchen island cabinets - but next time, it would likely be a much bigger job. I highly recommend using this company."

    "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 !"

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.
