    "William was professional and personable while working to complete repairing and staining our deck, repair, cement, and stain our shed, repair the gutter on our shed, and replace the flashing on our front gutter. He had all the solutions to my problems and completed all requested work in a week. We are very pleased with the time, energy, and skill William put into our three very different house projects. He respected our time and property while working on our home. He was very communicative with any needs or questions if they arose. We would recommend him to anyone for their deck repair/staining, gutters, and siding work."

    "I canâ t say enough good things about this company. I had my entire condo painted, including ceilings, trim and doors. David stayed in touch before, during and throughout the project, which was delayed at one point because I had Covid. The painter was professional, courteous, prompt, efficient and an excellent painter and completed the job in 6 days. The price was very reasonable for such a large job. Iâ ve had many positive comments about his work from friends and family. I would use this company again and definitely recommend them."

    "Larry and his helper really had their work cut out for them and they were meticulous and did a fabulous job. Larry moved a drop ceiling for me and trimmed everything out with crown molding. He also replaced the door to my attic. They worked around my three dogs stealing their tools (and shoes). They cleaned up after themselves every day. He was very thorough and creative. It wasn't once and done, no matter what. He would do and redo things until it was perfect. The communication was excellent and he kept me informed through the entire process. I am having them come out to give me another estimate because I was so happy. The price was terrific as well. I cannot say enough positive things about this company! I trust them and I know they are honest."

    "A-1 and Charles Elliott did a wonderful job. They prepped and painted all my interior walls, baseboards, window trim , doors and ceilings including the insides of closets. The work was finished neatly. Clean-up was good and Charles has the tendency to do just a little extra. I am thoroughly satisfied with the outcome and with the price."

Friendly, detailed-oriented, readily available for any and all questions and offered sound advice about other issues they would around the house without any pressure to buy. They did an excellent job on all of my exterior doors and shutters and some minor foundation workâ ¦even touched up my carport poles, front lawn light and porch column.

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.
