    "This is the second time Iâ ve hired Momoâ s and will use them again. The first project was painting all the walls, ceiling and trim of my kitchen, dining room, entryway, front door, and stairwell with vaulted ceilings. I liked it so much I hired them again to paint my kitchen cabinets. Holy smokes, what a remarkably perfect result. Truly stunning and I get so many compliments. Erick was more than patient with me after I had to reschedule the job due to an emergency. Both jobs were completed with such meticulous care to details that youâ d think it was brand new construction. Both my home and myself were treated with exceptional kindness and professionalism. They took great care to clean up every day and keep my living a space as functional as possible throughout the process. The results alone are phenomenal but the customer service is above and beyond what most contractors could only dream of providing. Donâ t hesitate to reach out for an estimate because youâ ll see immediately why Momoâ s is the best."

    "I highly recommend Crowe Painting for drywall installation and painting. They worked with my very busy schedule, got everything done in a timely manner, and did a beautiful job reinstalling and painting my bathroom ceiling and upper walls. They also freshened the paint on the radiator, door and trim, even though it wasn't included on the scope of work. What a nice extra -- and a demonstration of attention to detail! From beginning to end, it was a great experience."

    "Above excellent. After 40+ years, it was way above time to paint. MJ was quick to respond, wonderful communication skills, price was very good, and work - excellent. I needed front/dining room, walls and celings repaired and painted, all trim (windows, doors, railings) painted, removed carpeting. He and Jana were so easy to work with I couldn't be more pleased. After the work was finished, he called to say he forgot to put a piece of furniture back, came the next day and graciously took down drapery rods which I had, after the fact, decided to remove. Perhaps sounding too gushy but so happy with the work, the personal experience and cannot find a complaint. Would/will recommend him withut hesitation."

    "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."

    "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."

    "John and Bash Painting did a great job repainting my decorating client's ketchup and mustard-colored walls, ceilings, and trim. Very nice, respectful, and prompt. John was patient with my indecisiveness regarding which white I liked best for the open areas, and I loved what we ended up choosing. My client's condo looks like a completely different home now. Great 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.
