What Are the Costs of Hiring a Professional Painting Company?

The cost for expert house painting services can vary based on many elements. One of the largest factors in price is the paint job’s size. Interior house painting work comes to around $3.50 per square foot, while outdoor home painting jobs can cost, on average, $1.50 to $4 per square foot.

Some other elements that might impact the total of residential painting jobs include:

  • Paint type and quality. Paint is not all priced equally, and choosing a more expensive kind of paint increases the total cost.
  • Prep work necessary. If painting contractors must repair exterior boards or siding or prime walls before they paint, the price typically goes up.
  • State. The costs for all services and goods vary depending on your location and state, and painting jobs are no exception.
  • Height. If painting teams must build scaffolding or use other tools to reach tall areas to paint, the price can increase by up to 120%. The cost rises as the height increases, so residences with cathedral ceilings or multiple stories are most likely to cost more to paint than a single-story home.

One way to get a feel for what your home painting job might cost is to ask for estimates from prospective painters in Pueblo.

What Types of Services Do House Painting Contractors Provide?

House painters do a whole lot more than paint your exterior siding or walls with a new color. Some painting businesses might add accent walls or add creative displays, for instance, and some may also offer pressure washing services for outside siding.

Many house painting contractors do interior wall painting. At its core, these jobs consist of priming and painting walls, incorporating edgework, to ensure an expert-looking finish. Some contractors might also paint ceilings, molding, and baseboards, but it’s vital to ask and not just assume.

Contractors that offer exterior house painting services paint the outside of homes, including siding, brick, and other surfaces. Double check with a business to ensure it will paint specialty surfaces should your house has them.

If you’re searching for a bit more flair, you may want a contractor that does stenciling or other decorative painting. This specialty job might reduce how many contractors you can work with and increase the price. It’s especially vital that you go over a painter’s portfolio to understand if they can do creative work you’ll be content with.

Reaching out to potential painting contractors in Pueblo is the best way to find out if they may offer the work you need. Providing as many attributes as you can about your preferences and goals for the painting job might also help companies provide you the most valide 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.
