    "Jeff showed up at exactly the time he promised. Replaced existing ceiling fan (w/ light) with a new one. My wife asked if he could use the "dome" from the old fan/light and he was able to make it work!! Very friendly and professional. Excellent quality. Would use again in a heartbeat!!"

    "The quote process was very detailed and broke down price by room and substrate. This was useful since we were looking at getting trim, cabinets, walls and doors painted and ended up getting the entire downstairs painted. They were meticulous in their prep and execution and the result is great. The site lead EJ kept me in the loop on progress and what was next, reviewed the work before they finished and did a walk through with me when they finished. The team was on time every day and cleaned up their work area each day before they left."

    "We have worked with Aaron primarily on roofing (multiple repairs over the years to fix random leaks with holes in shingles and flashing, and more recently complete re-roof on our home.) Aaron tried to help us with an insurance claim for the reroof (which was ultimately denied, but Aaron tried). For that reroof, Aaron notified us when a price increase on shingles was going to happen the week before we were scheduled to be done, and made sure we got the shingles ordered at the reduced rate before the increase took effect. Saved us several hundred dollars, if not more. He also recently fixed some siding that a prior contractor, who replaced and repainted most of our siding, missed and/or did not properly handle. During that time with the other contractor, Aaron went out of his way to help us make sure the other company was residing to code/recommendations, Also, if communication is key for you (as it is for me), Aaron is one of the most communicative people I have worked with."

    "I am very impressed with this new company because of their process and end result. When I called, i was immediately given an appointment for them to come out to view the project. Later they provided an estimate via email. I got on their schedule quickly, and they were finished in less than a half day. I myself have painting experience, and I can tell you it was the best paint job Ive ever seen. They didnt cut corners, did all the prep you would expect, and the end result was outstanding. I will use this company again."

    "I was called back by someone to do an estimate right away. The estimator was thorough, took pictures with their iPad and highlighted the areas of the house that would need repair work in addition to the painting. The price was very fair for the amount of work. The painting team was exceptional. The lead walked around the house with me to understand everything that I wanted and was very clear about what they were going to do. They were always on time and worked through sporadic rain. They always cleaned up their materials and were very considerate. The real proof though was in the quality of their work. The house was beautiful, the attention to detail in the trim and doors was fantastic, and they went over and above on the deck restoration and staining they did. I would hire them again for any exterior project and highly recommend them."

    "I am so thankful I hired Henry at H&M Contractor for my bedroom and bathroom project. I live in a 1984 manufactured home so the walls are not drywall. They replaced the bedroom ceiling, painted my bedroom, and bathroom, installed crown moulding, baseboards, trim, and 3 nice two panel doors that they made work in my home and some other miscellaneous work. My bedroom and bathroom look awesome now. I am very happy with the results. Henry and his crew were always prompt, courteous, and professional. Henry communicated with me every step of the way. The whole project was drama free which I appreciated. They care about their work and want you to be happy. They are fantastic and I plan to use them for future projects."

Bill scheduled the work to be done the very next day after I called. He was here within a few minutes of the scheduled time, and even called to let me know that he was delayed and would be a few minutes late. I really appreciated that courtesy and the professionalism. His price was also better than any other I received. I would highly recommend Bill and ATG!"

    "We did two different projects with VMart. They hung and taped drywall in our one car garage. They did a great job with that project so we had them do a follow on project of having them paint the interior of our 2000 sf home. This was also done well. Victor is professional and very enjoyable to interact with which is part of the reason we will seek out his services for future projects. We do recommend VMart to others seeking the services they offer."

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.
