    "Was extremely good at his craft at a very good rate. Provided all of his own tools had lots of gear and equipment tailored to drywall and making the process clean and efficient. Heâ s very trustworthy and fair as I had many power tools and high value items around left unattended while he worked and didnâ t have to think twice about anything happening to them. Overall Iâ d hire him again. Was exactly was I was looking for. Had him mud sand prime and paint our laundry room and he did a great job."

    "We hired professional painter when we bought our home. We had walls, trims, and railings. He did an amazing job. Very thorough. I did not find any missed spots. On top of that, he is very clean. Other than the smell of fresh paint, you would never know you had a contractor in the house. Highly recommend!"

    Ewa N. in August 2022


    "Steve is fantastic. The company has veritas in the name for a reason, because heâ s honest. Steve did a few small projects for us around the house and everything was great. There was even one small item I didnâ t know how to fix. Apparently it was super easy and instead of charging me, Steve gave me suggestions to do it myself. Took 10 mins and saved me a bunch of money. This is truth. Hire Steve."

    "Started the job when they said they would. Made me aware of a leak in the outdoor faucet pipe. They could have ignored it and I wouldn't have known about it and they could have just put the siding up over it. Then they fixed it. After they finished painting, a corner of the house was damaged by squirrels. Once the squirrels were caught and removed, they fixed the wood damage and repainted, with no charge. Had some finishing up issues, Jose took care of them all. I think the house looks great."

    "I am Nancy Brown, I live in Hoffman Estates, & I own a 2 bedroom condo. I wanted to express my deep appreciation to Angelo Riviso, {Angelo's Painting} for making my dull and boring home into a master piece, elegant & beautiful!! His excellent professional knowledge of how to decided the best matching colors for each rooms, and the best contrast to beautifying my home. Than he will give time to sort out what you really want so ultimately its your decision. Just to give idea of how he was everyday, he'd come in @ 7:45 am, smiling and asking me how I was or how your weekend was? He has a great personality even early morning! I would make a fresh pot of coffee, & than put on the At & t music. You could hear him singing & whistling in the background, so you could feel how dedicated & enjoying hard work, he is in improving my home to making it a master piece!! He's been painting for 30 years and it shows in everything he does. I was only going with the walls, but he said, "It would make a big difference" and he was so right with his suggestion. He cleaned the ceiling and used Classic White for the ceiling. It was awesome to look at and I actually cried when I saw it!! I was hooked after that and just let him do his master piece. My home looks and feels like a brand new home, and its so gorgeous that I am already purchasing new furniture for dining room & living room. His prices are so extremely reasonable that when you hear them, you say no way, & then you think that the paint isn't part of estimate, but, it is!! And they are outstanding prices. What Angelo did: Painted Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Hallway, Bathroom, Master bedroom & Vanity, Ceiling, Walls,& Trim, 2 Closets, and 2 window Sills. Also, I am having him back for another painting job, which is the guest bedroom, and for the very tiny master bedroom bathroom!! Than after that I'm having him beautify my 4 doors front and back. In conclusion: I want to say that I would never have anyone else touch my home except Angelo. He is a gentleman and inside and out knows he's stuff to making your home beautiful inside and out!!"

    "We hired Brian Flowers to repaint our kitchen cabinets. He came out on a Thursday and was able to start the job the following Monday. His price was fair and definitely worth all the work he did for us. Brian was reliable and trustworthy. We can tell that he takes pride in his work because he sanded the cabinets many times and also painted and touched up the cabinets until they looked perfect. Many contractors are out to just get your money, but Brian truly cared about the quality of work he was putting into his job.He is extremely friendly and easy to work with.We will definitely use Brian for other jobs and we would recommend him to anyone. Thank you, Brian! We are so happy with our cabinets!"

    "My wife and I needed 8 sheets 4'X10' of drywall, tape and mud done to our kitchen. Daniel came out and gave us a price (in line with everyone else) and 1 day to install. When Daniel and his guys were here, they took the time to prep, paper off the floor, plastic over cabinets and plastic off the room to prevent dust from getting in adjacent rooms. Put on drywall, tape and mud to a primer ready quality, cleaned up, vaccum and wipe floors clean with water. The whole process started at 7am and completely done by 2:30pm. Ceiling and walls look great and I would definitely recommend them to everyone!!"

    "Honestly one of the best experiences i have had working with someone. From the first step on talking on the phone through Angie's list till the finishing of the job, I am very pleased. Firstly, communication and knowledge of the job was quite extensive. He helped explain the process and used the best materials for the job. Time and effectiveness was absolutely amazing. Finishing the whole house paint in 1.5 days and the kitchen cabinet in 2 days. He would show up with this team everyday on time and work diligently. I was never disturbed while they were here. Thirdly, the work ethic is just absolutely amazing. They went above and beyond for every request. If I had some comments after the job was done, Nerman would listen diligently and help fix it. He made sure we were satisfied with the job, and that we are. Also, very clean and nothing got dirty either. They covered the whole area very smoothly and I did not have to worry about cleaning. I hired him for first painting the house, then rehired him for the cabinets, and planning on rehiring him again for exterior painting. Truly, words cannot describe how happy I am with the job."

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.
