    "Julio is a very talented painter. He did a great job prepping the ceiling and walls after my contractor had done a poor job of spackling. He then primed and painted the walls and trim. Also primed over varnished wood trim and painted it white. Excellent job!"

    "I hired Jeremy to paint my kitchen cabinets. Jeremy and the boys were true professionals from start to finish. He was super responsive from the get-go and walked me through every step of the way. He s a true professional who doesn t settle for anything less than perfect. He accommodated my crazy work schedule and dealt with my psychosis and eased all my worst case scenario fears. His workers are diligent and take great care to keep your home clean throughout the process. He has all the answers because he s done it a thousand times before. I highly recommend this service."

    "I was totally satisfied -- in fact, delighted -- with Javier @ Frondoyer Painting. He was responsive, courteous, meticulous, honest, and very professional. And his pricing was substantially less than the two other painters who were also referred by HomeAdvisor.com. I would highly recommend this gentleman for interior house painting, and wall or ceiling repairs. He even replaced a door, and matched the stain color and finish perfectly. Great job, Javier!"

    "This was a very professional company. We hired them to repaint and refinish our kitchen cabinets. The crew did a fantastic job!. Every day there was a supervisor to check on the status of the job and to keep us updated. The crew was very clean and protected the surrounding walls and floors. The other areas of the house were taped off from the kitchen to prevent any dust from spreading. They worked hard and did a professional job! Would rehire them in a heartbeat. You will not be disappointed."

    "I had a great experience with this company. We had a significant storage project where they installed several built in closets. This included a large kitchen pantry, entryway closet, linen closet, and closet for our bedroom. All of the closets looked like actual structures that had always been there. Additionally, their team was professional, on time, and pleasant to be around. I already have plans to use them for future projects."

    "Bright Smart was very professional and timely. They explained the project in detail, gave me good advice, they did all the legwork for permits, etc. on time and gave me a very reasonable quote. The new service drop and enclosure look very high quality; the service panel and cable management they did inside is very organized and neat. They also took the time to figure out what devices were controlled by each circuit and labelled them all clearly. They explained what I could add with the extra space in the panel and the types of breakers I would need to purchase. They were quick and efficient with their work and professional. They took full control of scheduling of the inspection and making sure everything was done correctly. I would not hesitate to use Bright Smart again. Gianmarco and another young guy worked on the project; great guys."

    "I did my homework on Home Advisor and decided to meet with Art & Roseanne of ARC Painting & Refinishing. When they came to our home to give us an estimate and we felt like we knew each other for many years . We liked them immediately and felt they were experienced and honest so we went with our gut and hired them to refinish our 50 year old custom cabinets. The Cabinets were structurally in great shape but in desperate need of a good painting. Color was discussed in great detail and Roseanne brought a number of color boards to hang up in the room for a few days to help us select the best color for our kitchen. Once the color was decided, all the cabinet doors and drawers were removed and brought to their shop to be stripped and sprayed off site, while the frames were done in house by hand. We had some conflicts with scheduling with another contractor working in the home at the same time and Art and Roseanne were happy to work with us when rescheduling was necessary. They also did an excellent job on the all the hardware for the cabinets. Roseanne put a special trim on the doors to give them a slightly distressed look which is very attractive. They were particularly meticulous in putting up the doors once they were finished to be sure they fit properly which can be a very time consuming process with older cabinets. We also had them paint 4 of our rooms and a stairwell, walls and ceilings. They are extremely neat and always cleaned up at the end of their workday. They love animals so your pets are not a problem to them! I would recommend them in a heartbeat and will use them again when the time comes for additional work."

In total we had our hardwood floors redone after they were water damaged; repainted our first floor, installed a new island and retiled our fireplace. They also installed new screen doors on the front and back of our house. They worked quickly but diligently. We are very happy with the results and are planning to use them again for our next home project!"

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.
