How Much Do Painters Charge?

The price for expert home painting jobs can change based on several factors. One of the biggest factors in cost is the paint job’s size. Interior house painting work totals around $3.50 per square foot, while outdoor house painting services can cost, on average, $1.50 to $4 per square foot.

Why Height Increases House Painting Costs

When paint teams have to reach taller areas on a home to complete work, the total can increase. This is because paint teams have to erect scaffolding and use ladders and other equipment to reach higher areas. That’s additional manual labor, which increases costs. Some contractors might also reimburse employees an additional fee to account for riskier work.

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

Other Factors That Determine House Painting Job Prices

Height and overall size are not the only elements that can determine cost. Location plays a big role, as painting services cost more or less determined on the city and state you’re in. The option of paint also determines cost, as high-end or premium paint totals more. If workers must do more prep work or repairs than anticipated, such as double priming over a dark wall or replacing rotten siding boards, the price may also go up.

Common Jobs Painting Businesses Provide

Not all home painters do all sorts of house painting, so it’s necessary to understand what services are on offer and who you might turn to for them. Some house painters may only paint the outdoors of houses, while some might only do interior painting. Some might focus on decorative efforts, such as adding decorative accent walls or murals to spaces.

A lot of home painting professionals do interior wall painting. At its most basic, these jobs include priming and painting walls, including edgework, to ensure an expert-looking finish. Some professionals may also paint baseboards, molding, and ceilings, molding, ceilings, and baseboards, but it’s important to ask and not just assume.

Professionals that provide outside residential painting jobs paint the outside of residences, including siding, brick, and other surfaces. Double check with a business to make sure it will paint specialty surfaces should your residence has them.

When you’re searching for a tiny bit more creativity, you may want a contractor that does stenciling or other decorative painting. This specialty job might reduce the number of professionals you can work with and drive up the price. It’s especially vital that you go over a painter’s portfolio to comprehend if they can perform decorative work you’ll be happy with.

Providing as many specifics about your potential job as you can helps painting companies in Hattiesburg determine if they might be right for the job and offer an accurate estimate.

Frequently asked questions

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.
