    "I was hesitant hiring someone I didn't know but Artur showed me examples of his work. I am so glad we chose him! He did a fantastic job, showed up every day on time and never left early. He went above and beyond requests. The tiles in my basement & bathroom are perfect and within budget. I will be recommending him to our circle of friends in the future!"

    "We hired Optimus Primers and could not be happier. We have high standards and all of our expectations were met. We recently put in brand new wood floors and wanted painters who are NEAT and that is what we got. No paint on our wood floors, detailed oriented painters. The painters were respectful and very professional. Mr. Demitri Sevastos the owner of Optimus Primers was wonderful to work with. He is professional, showed up every day on site, delivered us what we asked for and followed through. We will be having them back again for our next project. We had a very big project which included staircase of over 100 spindles, risers, front door, molding and much more. A+++ Very happy!!!"

    "Super impressed with the speed/quality of work and attention to every detail. Doing a complete gut renovation of your home isnâ t easy, but I know Iâ m in good hands with Jakob and LI Developers. My home isnâ t huge, but every inch of it is well thought out and being used properly now. Jakob made suggestions I had no idea were possible and has increased the functionality of our available space. With Jakob youâ re getting a contractor, a visionary and perfectionist all in one. He takes pride in his work and reputation, heâ ll make sure the job is done right. We had to wait a few weeks for him to get started on our job, but it was worth the wait. Our gut renovation consisted of a new roof, siding, doors, windows, floors, moldings, paint, kitchen, bathrooms, electrical, plumbing, hvac, new driveway, tree removal, porch with pavers, side patio pavers and backyard patio pavers. Whatever it is you need Jakob can get it done, donâ t waste another minute and book him!"

    "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."

    "We really lucked out when we hired Luan to replace our deck. He is professional, punctual and hard-working. Luan was very open about pricing and the amount he quoted was the amount he billed. We had this old, neglected screened-in porch that I couldn't wait to get rid of. Luan tore down our old porch and helped us create the deck of our dreams. We are SO happy with our deck now that we spend a lot more time in our yard. We can't wait to hire him to do more projects around our home! Hire him. You will not regret it."

    "I had an excellent experience with Polanco Bros. In scheduling the winterization of my sprinkler system on the eve of a 20 degree temperature drop, the company's representative was very accomodating to work with me to provide next day service. The contractor, Tony, came during the window promised and got the job done quickly. Also, he was very polite. I will likely use this company again."

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.
