    Painting, Drywall

    "The Gramajo team did a fantastic job with our interior painting project! Diego was very responsive and able to provide an estimate for our project the next day. They were flexible to accommodate our desired start date and offered a very competitive price. The team was on time and very professional. We appreciated the quality of their work (i.e., prep work to fix existing cracks and imperfections and clean paint lines along the ceiling and trim), as well as how clean they left our house after the project was complete. I would not hesitate to use them for another paint project in the future."

    Painting, Fence Repairs, General Handyman

    "Vince is very professional, friendly, and doesnt try to take advantage of you. I had a few small jobs that needed attention to detail to repair and Vince did a magnificent job at sizing up the work and providing a solution. He was very flexible with his time, often adjusting his schedule to come in the later evenings to complete work. Once I needed to adjust the schedule due to a planned outing with my family and he was able to do so. He is a great man to get along with and he informed me of progress every step of the way through the job. He's very careful and thorough. I look forward to doing more work with Vince and as a realtor, I'm positive I will have clients who will require his services. Great job all around."

    "I hired Paint the DMV to paint my exterior siding (Hardee board) and trim that also included doing some minor repair work and replacing the caulking. In addition, they mudded and sanded and painted my two car garage. The quality of the work was outstanding. The painters from Paint the DMV were very detailed oriented and cleaned up every day. In addition to the quality work, the customer communication and service was excellent. Marvin contacted me in advance of the project to lay out the schedule and arrival times. When they said the would be there at 0830AM - they arrived at 08:15AM. Marvin kept up on the weather and if rain was coming he coordinated schedule changes directly with me and did a close out call every day. I would definitely recommend Paint the DMV and I plan to use them on future projects."

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.
