Discover the Proper House Painting Business in Mobile for Your Interior or Exterior Painting Project

A professional paint project can offer many advantages for your house. An outdoor paint job might elevate curb appeal and the value of your home, and new paint in an inside space can make it new to you again. To obtain these advantages, though, you first have to hire the correct paint business in Mobile for your project.

You can find everything you require to search for an expert residential painter at HomeAdvisor. Begin by entering your ZIP code and answering a few questions pertaining to your possible painting job.

We use that information to pare down the results so we can supply a curated list of potential home painting professionals in your hometown. From that list, you can go over reviews and view photographs of projects that painting services have completed previously. That information helps you make a final list of contenders who are a fit for your project. From there, you can reach out to get estimates.

What Are Typical Services a Painting Company Provides?

Not all house painters perform the same types of residential painting, so it’s important to understand what services are provided and who you may turn to for them. Some house painters may only paint the outdoors of houses, while others may focus on interior painting. Some might specialize in decorative projects, such as adding murals or decorative accent walls to rooms.

Standard services house painting professionals offer include:

  • Painting interior walls. All interior paint companies paint interior walls, typically in colors of your choosing. Ask whether or not a professional works with scaffolding if you have high walls or cathedral ceilings, as not all professionals take on those sorts of services.
  • Painting interior baseboards, ceilings, and other areas. Many interior painting professionals paint baseboards, ceilings, molding, and other inner structure facets as desired.
  • Creative or decorative painting. Some painting professionals do highlighted walls with special painting ministrations, such as feathering or marbling. A few might also provide stenciling or mural services to increase the beauty of walls.
  • Outside painting. Outdoor painting professionals paint outside walls and surfaces like eaves or fascia. Do not assume that a professional does both interior and outer painting—always ask to guarantee both jobs are included if you intend to contract the same company to paint the interior and outside of your house.

If speaking to possible home painting companies in Mobile, delve into what type of painting you’re looking for. The business 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.

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.
