How Much Do Home Painting Companies Charge?

The usual cost of paint services for your home is $1.50 to $4 per square foot based on a multitude of components. Among the biggest factors is the complete surface area that requires paint. A larger house or room with more area to paint needs more materials and time, which inflates the cost.

Why Height Ups Residential Painting Costs

When paint teams have to reach higher surfaces on a home to complete services, the total can go up. This is because paint professionals must put up scaffolding and use ladders and additional tools to reach higher surfaces. That’s additional manual labor, which increases prices. Some businesses may also reward workers a premium to account for riskier services.

If painters must work above 8 feet, for example, the cost can go up by 30%, on average. Services that necessitate working above 19 feet can drive prices by around 120%.

Some Other Elements That Impact House Painting Job Costs

Height and overall size aren’t the only factors that may determine cost. Location makes a big difference, as painting services cost more or less depending on the state and city you live in. The choice of paint also determines price, as premium or high-end paint totals more. If workers must do more repair or prep work than anticipated, such as replacing rotten siding boards or double priming over a dark wall, the price might also rise.

The best way to understand what your house painting gig might cost is to get estimates from prospective painting pros in Longwood.

What Can You Hire a Painting Company to Do?

House painters do a whole lot more than slather your exterior siding or walls with a new paint color. Some painting professionals might add accent walls or add decorative displays, for instance, and others might also offer pressure washing work for outdoor siding.

Interior Painting Jobs

A selection of home painting professionals will engage in interior paint projects. That includes priming and painting walls. Professional painters usually tape off and otherwise prepare the room to prevent paint from splashing on other areas and perform edgework to guarantee an attractive final outcome.

Should you expect painters to paint other surfaces, including ceilings, baseboards, or molding, ask businesses about these jobs before you hire them. Some might not provide the services and might charge extra fees.

Outdoor Painting Services

Exterior house painting companies paint the outside of homes, including siding or other outdoor wall areas. Talk to possible painting professionals regarding the kind of area that requires painting, as this can change the size and price of the project. Some painting businesses will handle large or tall homes and some won’t, as not all professionals have the workers and scaffolding needed to paint multi-story houses.

Creative Home Painting Jobs

Decorative home painting work includes decorative components, such as specialty accent walls or murals. If you have your heart set on something like this, talk about it first and foremost with possible professionals to discover if they might offer the service or suggest an artist who can paint alongside them.

If speaking to possible house painting businesses in Longwood, detail what type of painting you’re looking for. The contractor can tell you whether or not they provide those services.

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.
