    Areas Of Expertise: Siding, Roofing

    "They replaced a section of porch roof on our 1880 Victorian. That section is visible only from across the street and I didn't notice it until there were serious problems with the decking and rafters as well. Sonny gave a firm estimate of $3,000 with firm completion date for the repair, inluding gutters on the roof above, I had earlier had a verbal agreement for about the same price with a smaller operator who became progressively more vague on expected completion date. The job was completed as and when promised. Very professional job. This is a family firm, playing out the American dream for immigrants from Albania. It was a delight dealing with Sonny and hearing their story."

    Areas Of Expertise: Flooring, Painting

    "Mike is very reliable, easy to work with, flexible and very detailed and skilled when it comes to painting. He painted both our ceiling and walls in a few rooms, and we were very happy with both him and his work. I highly recommend him."

    "Jhefferson Rivera and his 7 person crew are amazing. Starting with the estimate, he came out and was very attentive to what we wanted and explained how he would achieve our desired results. The new shingles were dropped off a couple of weeks later. The day of the new roof his crew arrived at 6:15 AM and got right to work. First they protected all bushes and siding with large tarps, then five guys scraped off all the old shingles, while two women cleaned up all the debris. By 10:30 they were putting down the ice & water protector and the synthetic underlayment. When they started installing the new shingles it was like a well choreographed ballet, with each person knowing exactly what to do and doing it efficiently. This very polite, well trained crew had the new (40 square) roof completely installed by 7:00 PM, and had the entire yard cleaned up by 7:45 PM. The following day two of the guys returned to finish the ridge vent and the new flashing around the chimney. Then a day later the new gutters were installed. Jhefferson's wife Erika kept us informed at every step: from the contract, to the permit, to the inspection, to the shingle warrantee. Our town building inspector was very impressed by the quality of the job. We are extremely happy with the entire process, and highly recommend J&J Rivera Home Improvement for your new roof."

    "I highly recommend Shaun and his crew. We had an unusual situation—a previous siding job was terribly done by an unqualified contractor and needed to be fixed. The siding itself was in good condition but needed to be taken down and reinstalled correctly. Shaun agreed to take on the job, and the end result looks beautiful and is much more secure. They finished the job quickly and left the place cleaner than before. Shaun is professional, polite, and explained every step of the process in plain terms and answered all of our questions. I would definitely hire him again!"

Then they came back a few days later and sanded and sanded -- much more than we thought they would. They pointed out anything that needed to be replaced and offered to replace them if we wanted. They primed a whole lot more than we thought they would which was great. Then the paint and the trim paint. Great job!! Thanks John, Kelly, and Brian!"

    US Pro Construction, LLC Logo
    Vernon, CT·

    Areas Of Expertise: chimney Repair

    "HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS COMPANY! Our project was to repair, reinforce and reinstall the old deck foundation of two connected houses ï¼ just finished last week on Oct 21, 2022ï¼ . After contacting three companies, we ended up choosing US Pro Construction because of its reasonable price and great customer service.â ¨ Compared with other companies, US Construction moved much quickly and without delay. Jon and his partner Agim were on site the day after I called and gave construction plans and cost estimates for discussion. Every day, they worked on time but without rushing or taking any shortcuts. One of the things that really touched me was that the company was 35 mi away from my house, but they always showed up and started work at 8 oâ clock regardless of the weather. Jon and his team are professional, courteous, and are diligent workers. Also, they are more than willing to discuss every detail of the work they have to perform, and make ensure the client is happy and comfortable every step of the way. At the end of day, they also treated my yard with respect, picked up all the mess and cleaning everything up. I am very happy and satisfied with the quality of their work and completion on time. US Pro Construction, as long as they stay open, I will definitely hire them again if needed. Honesty, Integrity, and professionalism along with sales skills/pricing should be high on everyone's list, and US Pro Construction is the contractor you want to choose. You will not be disappointed."

    "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.

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.
