    "Mr Chromik did plaster repairs from severe water damage and other wall smoothing and prep, primed and painted. He was efficient, clean in his work and detail oriented in both plaster repairs and painting. The two rooms look like new. He is smart and creative and very friendly. He simply did a terrific job. And very fairly priced."

    "Had Paintzen do a complete paint job of our brand new apartment, including painting our ugly wood cabinets a cute, modern blue AND wallpapering two walls. Everything was imbecile from start to finish. Exceptional communication throughout, I loved the ease of online booking/communications (so convenient for a working person), the painters were on-time and polite (and they finished a day early!), and the paint job is wonderful. It is now been 6 months and I do not regret using Paintzen one bit. Highly recommend!"

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.

    "Zac and his team did great work for us. They built additional cabinets for my desk and repaired wood flooring in a closet. I then hired them to replace my kitchen flooring. Zac is a pleasure to work with and wanted to make sure I was perfectly satisfied with everything and came by frequently to check on the projects.

    "Kris from Paradigm is absolutely phenomenal!!! I only have good things to say and I would 100% recommend him and his team. From everyone who came over to give me a quote, he was the nicest, most honest, patient and knowledgeable. He addressed all my concerns and made me feel at ease. I was looking for someone to paint over my whole apartment, remove the rust from my balcony rails and paint them over, as well as regrout my really old balcony tiles. Kris gave me a very reasonable quote, was very dedicated to my project and seemed to really care. He took his time to help me pick out the right colors and answer all my questions and follow ups. He got to work within the same week and during the process he kept me updated with pictures and would always respond to my texts/calls with detailed answers! I am very happy with the work he did to make my apartment look brand new! Kris is the best and I would definitely hire him again for any future projects!!"

    "The experience with Alexis and Youssef was incredible! Their professionalism, communication and expertise during the project was simply amazing. They were prompt right from the start with reaching out and scheduling time to come see our home and the work that needed to be completed. When we walked the project which initially included building a wall/closet in our primary bedroom, painting and removing popcorn ceilings, installing light fixtures and painting the first and 2nd floor, they were confident they could do it. When they started we also added fixing the stair cases/railing as they had probably 50+years of paint on them. Everyday they came bright and early and were very responsive and respectful of our space as we were living here while all the work was being completed. They worked weekends and evenings and were always so professional. The work they completed was transformative of our space, we cannot get over how amazing everything came out and are so thrilled with their attention to detail and very helpful recommendations. We will absolutely be working with them again and already have a list of projects we hope to get done in 2024!! We cannot thank them enough; we are so glad we met them and feel so great that we know we will have their contact for all the other things we hope to do next in our home."

First of all they were by far the most reasonably priced company out of every place I called. I was able to drop my doors off at their place and 2 days later I picked up perfectly primed and painted cabinet doors that looked brand new! They service and communication throughout the process was great and I am definitely considering hiring them again the next time we have a project come up. I am SO happy with my beautiful new cabinets!"

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.
