    "I took a chance and hired Mr. Handyman to fix my storm door. Kevin removed the door, worked his magic and reinstalled the door, and now it closes properly. I asked him if he did electrical work I needed a pagoda fixture that was in the ground near my driveway moved in about 3 feet. He dug a trench and installed the new pagoda fixture. I needed some wooden spindles from my deck reinstalled. He not only reinstalled them but reinforced all the spindles and also the railing. He was here for 5 hours. This is a great company...they sent an email with a picture of Kevin with his bio.A little pricy, they charge by the hour, but everything that needed fixing was fixed."

    Handyman

    "I was really impressed with the level of Brian and Michael's professionalism and integrity which is almost impossible to find nowadays and the way they approached my project, I knew I could trust them. I had a water leak from my second floor into my kitchen and hired them to repair the ceiling and wall after the plumber fixed a major leak. My kitchen cabinets also had to be reinstalled after the drywall repair. They did a perfect job of restoring my kitchen. i also asked them to take a look a my back yard deck which needed some support repair and not expecting this to be handled right away they actually fixed the deck in a matter of a few hours. This was a priceless experience and not only would i hire them again , I don"t think I would want anyone else to show up. Thank you again Brian and Michael you guys are the real deal!"

Not only did he remodel my kitchen (absolutely gorgeous, wish I could share pictures) but he also removed walls, changed headed/support beams, laid oak flooring & feathered in new oak, installed interior doors, painted, installed base and crown molding. He was trustworthy (this is huge for me) and very fair!! Looking around to see what other work I could have Dave come back to do!!"

    "Outstanding experience. Team Kumar and son, along with their merry band of craftsmen were wonderful. They took their time and displayed an amazing set of skills. They installed a tile kitchen floor, retiled a long entry way and installed a backsplash that contained a creative homespun design. I felt at home watching them create the magic. Watching them, a three job tile install was a choreographed work of art. This team is special and I will wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone and everyone looking for an expert tile installation."

    "This was a very professional company. We hired them to repaint and refinish our kitchen cabinets. The crew did a fantastic job!. Every day there was a supervisor to check on the status of the job and to keep us updated. The crew was very clean and protected the surrounding walls and floors. The other areas of the house were taped off from the kitchen to prevent any dust from spreading. They worked hard and did a professional job! Would rehire them in a heartbeat. You will not be disappointed."

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.
