    "We hired Custom Painting to do exterior and interior work on our 4000 square foot rustic timber home, located on a steep lot. Often working up to 40 feet off the ground, Dario and his crew did an excellent job staining and sealing siding, trim, decks, soffits, and window frames. Inside, they sanded and sealed natural pine wainscoting, wood-wrapped windows and doors, railings, and a 25-foot central tree trunk post. We were impressed at the meticulous way the crew worked, leaving not a single ding or scratch on any of the adjacent drywall. Nothing was broken, and everything was left tidy. The crew were always courteous, professional, and punctual. And much quieter than any painters we’ve worked with previously! Communication was excellent – they notified us in advance when they’d be working, and regularly reviewed finished work and planning options. Pricing was very reasonable, and fully understood in advance. We highly recommend Custom Painting and will definitely use them again in the future!"

    "My sister and I hired Douglas Painting to paint the interior of the 70 year old home my parents left to us. He began work on Tuesday and was finished by a little after lunch time Friday. I have hired professional painters before but he is the best of them all. He is professional, does better than excellent work (the house looks like new on the inside now Wish I had before and after pictures.). He also helped us by painting our front porch and back deck as well as some "handyman" work my sister and I couldn't do. I can't say enough good things about how pleased my sister and I are with the completed project. If you are looking for a great painter who cares about the work he does and charges reasonable prices call Douglas Painting FIRST. You too will be happy with the results. Thank you Douglas Painting, Sarah"

    "David initially came to my house as part of a complete backsplash redo that Lowe's and service pros botched in my kitchen. Service Pros called him in to do the painting, upon speaking with him I found out he does sheetrock and I subsequently hired him to fix a crack in my popcorn ceiling. He did a great job on the repair and the popcorn he blew on the patch matched. I have since provided his number to two family members and would not hesitate to hire him again. He is prompt, reasonable and professional. Nice guy all around. If he can do it, he'll tell you, if he can't, he'll tell you. I find him trustworthy."

He was also able to see and fix problems from previous renovated areas of the project so that installation would be safe and last. He was very upfront about cost and let me know about the price of materials before starting his work. And he kept his work area very CLEAN!!

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.
