    "I highly recommend Crowe Painting for drywall installation and painting. They worked with my very busy schedule, got everything done in a timely manner, and did a beautiful job reinstalling and painting my bathroom ceiling and upper walls. They also freshened the paint on the radiator, door and trim, even though it wasn't included on the scope of work. What a nice extra -- and a demonstration of attention to detail! From beginning to end, it was a great experience."

    "I cannot say enough good things about Abraham and his team. They were indispensible during a challenging and stressful move. Not only did they do a superb job of installing a ceiling fan to an 18ft ceiling, multiple patch repairs, seamlessly replacing and installing bathroom extractor fans that into non standard sized spaces, filling countless nail holes and repainting, and reattaching a dislodged dishwasher, Abraham did all of this amidst the chaos of a move and made MULTIPLE trips to Home Depot to color match paints when I provided the wrong cans. He was patient, thorough, and went WAY above and beyond any expectations in both service, execution, and generosity. If you have anything you need done in your home, make these guys your first call!"

    "I purchased two surface mount Murphy doors because I needed some additional bookcases. I was only looking for estimates to gauge whether I would install them in my home. Within a few minutes of putting the project on Angi, I received a text and a call. The pro's were ringing my doorbell within 30 minutes and we had an estimate within the hour. The guys removed the existing doors, moved the Murphy doors from my detached garage to the second floor of my home, went to Home Depot for missing parts and flawlessly installed the doors even though the wall and the floors were not level. Another estimator told me it would take 3 days to finish the project. The project was completed in one day and I am very happy with the results. I will definitely hire them again."

    "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."

    "Above excellent. After 40+ years, it was way above time to paint. MJ was quick to respond, wonderful communication skills, price was very good, and work - excellent. I needed front/dining room, walls and celings repaired and painted, all trim (windows, doors, railings) painted, removed carpeting. He and Jana were so easy to work with I couldn't be more pleased. After the work was finished, he called to say he forgot to put a piece of furniture back, came the next day and graciously took down drapery rods which I had, after the fact, decided to remove. Perhaps sounding too gushy but so happy with the work, the personal experience and cannot find a complaint. Would/will recommend him withut hesitation."

    "I cannot say enough wonderful things about Juan and his crew. We had an extensive project that including painting all of the trim, windows & doors in our home, repairing plaster cracks, regular drywall repair and painting of the whole house. Juanâ s team was meticulous with preparation of the space. We just had our floors done and they laid and taped brown construction paper throughout. The amount of time they spent focusing on the details made all of the difference. Our walls look brand new and the quality of the painting is top notch. His whole crew is full of hard-working talented painters and friendly guys. Could not recommend him enough! Scope of project: -painted all walls and ceilings -painted two staircases (risers, banisters, posts etc) -painted all of the doors in our home -painted all of the trim -painted all of the windows -painted picture rails -repaired plaster cracks -replaced water damaged ceiling"

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.
