    "If I had to describe Mike's work in one word, I would say 'meticulous'. We hired him to add wainscotting and wallpaper in our powder room. With any project, you have expectations of what the completed job would look like, and I must say he far surpassed my expectations. He did incredible work. It looks absolutely beautiful. In addition, he came when he said he would and kept me up to date on the project status. During the install, he maintained a neat and orderly job site and went above and beyond during the clean up at the end. This was the second time we worked with Mike, he previously added decorative moulding to the primary suite, and it won't be the last. I highly recommend him."

His work is perfect, his drywall and plaster work are wonderful and his painting even better, he is my number one call in case me or anyone that I know needs any work related to Drywall, painting, plaster."

    "Not only was Silas a pleasure to deal with, but his attention to detail was truly extraordinary. He restored my aging deck beyond what I thought was possible. I hired him to stain my deck, but what I got was really restoration. He trimed the shrubs encroaching on the deck, thoroughly pressure, washed it, spent over a day on his knees sanding the deck, replaced rotten boards and then gave it two sprayed on coats of stain. I will be hiring Silas again to do some interior painting for me as well. I canâ  t praise the quality of his work more."

    "We were thrilled with the work done by Green Shed Renovations! They fixed 3 outside doors for us. The work done was incredibly professional & the paint job was amazing! Josh & Issac were great-they were professional & made sure we were happy with the end result. We could not have asked for a better experience or work done to our exterior. We would definitely recommend them for any home project!"

    "Diego and his team at Vallen Pro are the best around! We needed all of the common areas of our home and our kitchen cabinets painted. It was a huge job. His team tackled two-story walls, vaulted ceilings, doors, window endless trim and wainscoting, crown molding, a tall brick fireplace, and knotty pine which is very difficult to paint over. Diego had the best price of all the quotes I sourced and was awesome to work with. He is great at keeping in constant contact so I never had any questions about what he and his team were doing â at the beginning of the day we would confirm next steps on the project, and at the end of the day we would review progress and make sure everything was perfect. I canâ t tell you how many times he said, â I want you to be 100% happyâ . I was nervous about having our kitchen cabinets painted but they look like theyâ re factory finish and Iâ m very happy with the final product. Heâ s meticulous with his work and takes great pride in the quality and end-result of his projects which is all you can ask for when trusting someone with your home."

    "He is very courteous, caring, professional, honest and above all meticulous with the work he has done for me at my home in the past year. I would and have highly recommended him to many of my relatives & friends. He has installed a complete shower and vanity in both of my bathrooms. He has also installed a multitude of outlets that were needed throughout my home. A motion light outside on my front porch was installed by him also. The house was built in 1926 so needless to say it has settled and a lot of wiring was ancient, not the easiest task but it was completed so efficiently and thoroughly beyond a doubt Mr. Delgado has a broad knowledge of home improvement techniques. He has also replaced outside doors that were broken and had to be adjusted and pieced in to level the houses settling condition. He is truly very smart and deals with all types of issues that to me seem impossible to complete without costing thousands of dollars but to my astonishment he has done the work within my means and a moderate amount of cost to me. I cannot reiterate enough how I would highly recommend him for any repairs or remodeling that is needed. I plan in the very near future to hire him for some much needed work inside and outside my home."

    "What a fabulous experience working with ColorLife Painting was. Father and Son duo, Ivo and Nick wowed us from the first conversation. This was a whole home interior paint. My wife and I were nervous. We weren't sure how to do it, or what the process was. They came to our home on time, listened to what we wanted, and made recommendations when we weren't sure about which direction to head with the project. I had a great feel from them right from the start. There was no pressure, and no attempt to up-sell us anything. Just a quick walk around, relaxed conversation, followed by what I believe was a GREAT quote for the job. Needless to say, my wife and I cancelled the rest of our planned visits, and went with ColorLife. Were we glad we did! They started the project a week later, arriving on time again, and getting right down to business, no messing around. I must mention that this was no easy job. They were attempting to take this home from 1962, to 2022. No easy feat. It must also be mentioned that we lived in the home with our kids while the job was done! Nick and Ivo were always careful and understanding of our situation, even though I'm quite sure this wasn't ideal for them. They never showed signs of being put out, trying to work around us. They would tell us the day before what to expect for the following day, and every step of the way, so there were no surprises! As the project unfolded, it became clear to my wife and I that our oak cabinets, being dated, would be an eyesore when the painting was complete, but really didn't want to replace them. I naively asked them if kitchen cabinets could be painted, and they replied, of course! They gave us a price which I later found out was about 1/5 of what it would have cost us to replace them. Even so, my wife wasn't sure. She was afraid of how it might look. Ivo and Nick offered a solution to help her decide. Two of the cabinets and drawers, were on the reverse side of the kitchen, located in the dining room. They said, if we were willing, they'd paint the 2 drawers and cabinets in the dining room, at little to no expense so we could judge. My wife agreed, and we were blown away. Our natural oak cabinets turned a beautiful white the next day! We were sold and gave them the green light. I must say, they were very methodical and efficient in their work. They showed up on time, each day, worked hard, while paying attention to detail. They worked very well together, as you might expect being father and son. Overall, I would highly recommend Ivo and Nick for any painting project you might have. Our home looks completely different, and is very appealing to the eye now, thanks to them. Their low key, easy going, no pressure manner won us over from the first conversation to the last hand shake. Don't hesitate to give these guys a call, and prepare to feel the same way my wife and I do. Thank you Nick and Ivo for a fabulous experience, under less than ideal circumstances! What a beautiful job you two did! David and Andrea"

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.
