Types of Services House Painting Contractors Offer?

Home painting professionals provide a wide array of services, but not every company offers the exact same options. Some professionals may zero in on interior paint jobs, while some handle special interior paint jobs or creative projects such as murals in the living room.

A lot of residential painting contractors do interior wall painting. At its most basic, these services include priming and painting walls, including edgework, to ensure an expert-looking finish. Some companies might also paint baseboards, molding, and ceilings, molding, ceilings, and baseboards, but it’s important to ask and not assume.

Companies that offer outdoor house painting jobs paint the exterior of homes, including brick, siding, and other surfaces. Double check with a business to make sure it will paint specialty surfaces should your house has them.

If you’re looking for a bit more creativity, you might want a contractor that does stenciling or other decorative painting. This specialty service might decrease the number of companies you might employ and increase the price. It’s especially vital that you review a painter’s portfolio to comprehend if they can do creative work you’ll be happy with.

Reaching out to possible painting businesses in Newark is the best way to find out if they might provide the services you require. Providing as many details as you can regarding your goals and preferences for the painting job may also help companies offer you the most valide estimate.

Tips to Guarantee You Hire a Painting Business Sufficient for Your Standards

While there may be many painting businesses in Newark, they won’t all meet your home painting requirements. Take steps when screening painting contractors to guarantee that the potential professionals on your list meet your needs.

Research Prior to Contacting Them

Begin with the information listed on HomeAdvisor, and then move on to do additional research about painting businesses you’re interested in. That may include:

  • Browsing the company’s website to look at what services it provides and whether it makes guarantees.
  • Browsing any online portfolios to see work the business has finished.
  • Looking through additional feedback on Google and social media.
  • Questioning friends and family for suggestions or if they know anything about a business you’re considering.
  • Reviewing the Better Business Bureau to make sure the contractor does not have any open issues.

Ask Plenty of Questions

Once you reach out to potential contractors, ask lots of questions. Find out what kind of work a professional offers and how they screen employees. Ask about timelines and budgets to guarantee the business is available when you need them. Ensure the professional uses the kind of paint you want and find out whether it contains the necessary tools to complete the project, including scaffolding, if required.

Ensure Businesses Are Experienced and Insured

Make an effort to find a business that has familiarity with services that coordinates with your project. Somebody who has only painted interior walls might not be aware how to perform outside paint jobs, for example. You should also always double check to guarantee contractors you work with have insurance coverage.

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.

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.
