    These days, so called contractors want money up front and most contractors either a) Take the money and run with it, or b) Jack the price up and ask for more later, or c) Do a very poor job and try to cut corner to save money, or d) Do not show up and delay the work day after day and you have to chase them.... THIS COMPANY specially "Cooper" is completely opposite of the above. - Highly trustworthy. - Very customer satisfaction focus. - Very professional - Pay very close attention to detail and quality of work. - He is very committed to do an excellent job and I was shocked. - He is a bit more expensive. But he estimates the price up front and does not change the price later. He collects at the end of the work. - He keeps you informed while working and keep you updated. - He provides receipts and send you pictures before and after work is done. - He gives you written contract clearly and itemized. - He is fast and if weather prevent him to get the work done. He informs you of delay and returns at first available opportunity. - they do all kind of work beside painting. I highly recommend them. Very good company! and great people.

What Are the Rates of Choosing a Professional Painting Company?

The average price of paint work for a home is $1.50 to $4 per square foot depending on a number of factors. One of the largest factors is the total surface area that requires paint. A larger home or room with more surface to paint needs more time and materials, which inflates the price.

Some other components that might make a difference with the total of residential painting services include:

  • Paint type and quality. Paint is not all priced equally, and choosing a more expensive sort of paint increases the overall price.
  • Prep services necessary. If painting professionals must prime walls or repair exterior boards or siding before they paint, the cost typically increases.
  • State. The prices for all services and goods change based on your location and state, and painting jobs are no different.
  • Height. If painting teams must build scaffolding or use other equipment to reach tall surfaces to paint, the cost can rise by up to 120%. The price rises as the height rises, so homes with cathedral ceilings or multiple stories are likely to total more to paint than a single-story house.

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.
