Suggestions for Employing a Painting Contractor for Your Home Painting Job

Searching for the best painting contractor for your standards and job is an excellent way to ensure the most likely chance of success. Read more about some of the factors you should consider when hiring a painting company in Norristown.

When reaching out to painting professionals, don’t forget to ask if they have the credentials mandated by local authorities. This can vary a great deal by area, so check with local and state licensing boards to ascertain the threshold for certification that your selected painter must meet.

What Can You Hire a Painting Company to Do?

Residential painting companies offer a wide range of services, but not every company offers the same options. Some companies might concentrate on interior paint jobs, while some perform special interior paint jobs or decorative projects like murals in the bedroom.

Home Interior Painting Services

A selection of residential painting contractors will complete interior paint jobs. This includes priming and painting walls. Experienced painters usually tape off and otherwise prepare the room to prevent paint from spilling on other surfaces and perform edgework to guarantee an attractive end outcome.

If you hope for painters to paint other areas, including baseboards, ceilings, or molding, ask companies about these jobs before you employ them. Some may not offer the services and might charge extra fees.

Exterior Painting Services

Exterior residential painting businesses paint the outside of residences, including siding or other outdoor wall surfaces. Speak with potential painting contractors regarding the type of surface that needs painting, as this may alter the scope and price of the project. Some painting companies will handle big or towering houses and some won’t, as not all contractors have the scaffolding and workers necessary to paint two- or three-story homes.

Creative Home Painting Jobs

Creative house painting jobs involve decorative elements, such as specialty highlighted walls or murals. If you desire something along these lines, talk about it first with potential companies to learn if they might provide the job or recommend an artist who can paint with them.

Giving as many specifics about your potential job as you can helps painting companies in Norristown determine if they may be right for the work and offer a precise quote.

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.
