What Are Typical Services a Painting Company Provides?

House painting businesses provide a wide array of projects, but not every company offers the same options. Some contractors may focus on interior paint jobs, while others perform special interior paint services or decorative jobs such as murals in the kitchen.

Many house painting professionals do interior wall painting. At its most basic, these jobs consist of priming and painting walls, including edgework, to ensure a professional-looking finish. Some businesses might also paint baseboards, molding, and ceilings, molding, ceilings, and baseboards, but it’s vital to ask and not assume.

Companies that provide exterior home painting services paint the outside of homes, including brick, siding, and other surfaces. Double check with a contractor to guarantee it will paint specialty surfaces if your house has them.

When you’re looking for a tiny bit more creativity, you might want a contractor that does stenciling or other decorative painting. This specialty job might decrease the number of businesses you might employ and drive up the cost. It’s especially important that you look at a painter’s portfolio to understand if they can perform decorative work you’ll be content with.

Reaching out to potential painting contractors in Greensboro is the best way to learn if they can offer the work you need. Offering as many attributes as you can regarding your preferences and goals for the painting job might also help contractors give you the most accurate estimate.

Average Prices Related to Professional Paint Services

The cost for expert residential painting services can vary depending on several factors. One of the biggest factors in price is the paint project’s size. Interior home painting work costs around $3.50 per square foot, while outdoor home painting services can total, on average, $1.50 to $4 per square foot.

Height can raise the price of your project. For outdoor painting, jobs that require working above 8 feet can cost 30 percent more, while jobs that necessitate working above 19 feet can total 120 percent more. This extra cost is typically due to paint contractors bringing in and erecting scaffolding and compensating workers more for the raised danger.

Some other elements in how much interior or outdoor residential painting come to include:

  • Locale. Like other goods and services, residential painting is more pricy in some states, regions, and localities.
  • Needed prep work. The more painting professionals must do to get your walls or home exterior prepared for paint, the more the job may cost.
  • Paint quality. More expensive paint typically leads to higher overall costs for your project.

One way to determine what your home painting job may cost is to ask for prices from potential painters in Greensboro.

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.
