    Residential & Commercial Painting

    "We could not be happier with Reggie and his team! The work they did on our cabinets, walls, trim and ceiling is outstanding. They brought our vision to life... our kitchen cabinets now look high end and custom, and the walls, ceiling, and trim look so great that I don't want to hang pictures or put holes in their work! Reggie and his crew were always prompt, friendly, and hard working, and they made sure to clean up when finished. There were no unexpected costs and our project ended up costing what we were quoted. They even went the extra mile and painted our doors, as well as fixed a loose front door handle on their way out on the last day! That obviously wasn't in the scope of their work but was such a courteous gesture. We HIGHLY recommend Hitchens Painting for all of your painting projects!"

    "My husband and I have dealt with Blue Hen Vinyl since 1983. At that time he sided our house. Since then he has installed new windows, new doors and new roof. This year (2018) we had him reside the garage to match the house. Also this year we were in need of a shed and since we are up in years could not construct the foundation ourselves. We turned to Bill to see if he would be willing to construct it for us. We wanted a wood foundation. After investigating what all was involved in completing the task properly he told us he would do it. When the man came to install the shed he was very impressed with how level and solid the foundation was. We have always been satisfied with Bill's work. He is always on the job himself and is very meticulous with his work. I'm sure we will be calling on him again in the future."

    "Joel and the team are great!! Very professional and they did an amazing job! I hired them to paint the basement originally. Because of their great work and great pricing, I used them on the front hallway, dining room, kitchen, bonus room, garage and front porch and windows! They are GREAT!! Even hung a new light fixture in the kitchen for me. You will not be disappointed by Joel and his team. His schedule and timing to get all this done was amazing!

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.
