What Are the Rates of Hiring a Pro Painting Company?

The price for professional home painting services can alter based on many components. One of the largest impacts on price is the paint project’s size. Interior home painting services costs around $3.50 per square foot, while exterior house painting jobs can total, on average, $1.50 to $4 per square foot.

Why Height Increases Residential Painting Costs

When paint contractors have to paint higher surfaces on a residence to complete services, the total can rise. This is because paint contractors have to erect scaffolding and use ladders and other tools to reach higher surfaces. That is additional manual labor, which increases prices. Some professionals might also reimburse workers a premium to account for more dangerous work.

If painters must work above 8 feet, for example, the cost can rise by 30%, on average. Jobs that require working over 19 feet can increase costs by around 120%.

Other Elements That Impact House Painting Job Costs

Height and overall size are not the only factors that might impact price. Location plays a big role, as painting services cost more or less determined on the state and city you live in. The choice of paint also determines cost, as high-end or premium paint comes to more. If workers must do more prep work or repairs than anticipated, such as replacing rotten siding boards or double priming over a dark wall, the price might also rise.

A good way to understand what your house painting job may cost is to obtain prices from potential painters in Fenton.

Ideas to Make Sure You Hire a Painting Contractor That Meets Your Requirements

While there may be lots of painting contractors in Fenton, some won’t meet your residential painting standards. Take action when vetting painting contractors to ensure that the potential businesses on your list meet your needs.

When contacting painting professionals, be sure to ask if they have the licensing mandated by local authorities. This can vary a great deal by location, so check with area licensing boards to determine the necessary credentials that your chosen painting contractor should meet.

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.
