    "Brian power washed my home and front deck(and stained the deck) and built a new door for my crawl space entrance. He did a wonderful job on everything I asked, but more than that, he fixed little things as he went along that he saw needed fixing. Not only did he enhance the final outcome of project, he was very knowledgeable; he clearly cared about his work. I have many more things that need to be done and I will not hesitate to call him again to replace some siding, my front door and several other projects. I highly recommend him."

    "My wife and I were completely amazed by the quality of work, communication and price of A-1's work. Price: I had several people quote the job. The prices ranged from a little under A-1's price to nearly double. The high price was ridiculous, and the person couldnâ t explain why. My house is 20 years old, and every wall needed TLC. Jim, from A-1, understood that half the project was getting the walls and ceiling back into shape. He went through room by room and helped me understand what should be painted (walls, ceiling, and baseboard) and where I could hold off and save money (painting doors â mine were in pretty good shape). He developed a detailed quote and that was the exact price at the end of the job. Communication: Jim texted me several times leading up to the day the job started and then during the process to inform me about the status of the painters. I was never guessing when someone would show up or when the job would be complete. Quality: Wow. Shockingly good!!! There were less expensive painters, but it was clear from talking to Jim that he had many years of experience â as did the team he employed. Before the painters arrived, I told Jim that I needed to cut a 6â hole in the wall to secure some pipes the had broken free. No problem. The lead painter, John, created a patch and 30 mins later, the hole was gone. 60 minutes later, you couldnâ t tell that I had cut a hole. John went on to patch every hole, dent and corner bead that had broken free. My walls looked like they had chicken pox. John went over everything was an expert eye. Jim visited the site several times to ensure the team had everything they needed and that I was satisfied. I canâ t say enough about John, the lead painter. He was exceptional. Great attention to detail, fast, neat and very friendly. Clean-up. The team put cloth down on everything. With all the repairs, the cloth caught wall chips, mud and paint. On the last day, the team pulled these out, vacuumed everything and replaced all the furniture. Great attention to detail!!! I would recommend this contractor to all my friends and family!"

    "I have interviewed many contractors and hired Freddy Jimenez to paint my decks and also do wood ceilings. The work was amazing. The price was very reasonable. The owner, Freddy, worked so hard and was a perfectionist. The crew was neat and cleaned up after all work. I kidded him that I was lucky to get him and that he was more concerned how things looked than I was. I kept saying it looks great, and he said I want it perfect. Freddy has a great personality and knows so much for a young guy. Do no let age fool you, he is an artist. I would use him for all future jobs if he is available. As a matter of a fact, I would wait for him. I am having him back in the fall to paint the inside of my home. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY."

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.
