    "He did more than expected, he took care of the prep work. He was the most budget friendly of the estimates I received. Once he started he did not stop and do other work elsewhere. We had a little bit of a language barrier, but we did fine writing instructions and expectations. I have more work for him here and will be reaching out to him shortly."

From full siding replacement, fence installation, deck repairs and rebuild, to gutter installation, stair repairs, masonry, and basement clean outs. Always fair pricing and ensures you are happy with the finished product!"

    Josh B. in February 2023


    "A little late here. Bruno made a purchase from my business and I helped him with the install. I was impressed with him as a person and hired him and his crew to do some remodeling at my shop. My wife and I then decided it was finally time to do our kitchen and we now had our contractor. This was early/mid 2021 during the nightmare disruptions in supply chain. Bruno came over and completely designed the renovation of our 1940â s kitchen. He immediately got us in touch with cabinet, counter and appliance suppliers and everything came together seamlessly. The process was incredibly coordinated and organized as this was a major project, we even added a few other projects along the way without any wrinkles. The room completely gutted to the studs and expanded so it was a major project. The quality of work and professionalism still amazes me 2 years later and I still walk into our kitchen 2 years later and itâ s still breathtaking. This is an award winning project that is magazine worthy. Finally, at the end of each day when they leave they leave your area so clean you wouldnâ t even know that they were their working hard all day."

    "I had Erick fix damage from pipes bursting this winter. He patched smoothed and painted my living room and dining room as well as replaced trim and smoothed and painted our old textured ceilings in our upstairs while sanding and refinishing all of our floors. I went into this process apprehensive after having several terrible experiences with contractors and construction previously. After finishing this project I immediately asked Erick what other things they do because I plan on using them again in the future for bathroom and kitchen remodel."

    "Having Mercy Painting with Eric and his crew was a fantastic renovation process. Hiring Mercy was the best decision we’ve made for work done on a home built in 1832. Our bedroom was transformed, in a week, from a total mess to a totally relaxing and peaceful space. From new ceiling, to reframing closets, adding moldings, paint, hung new closet doors, amazing workmanship. On time every day, true professionalism, old school manners and just wonderful. Very reasonable rates. Our expectations were exceeded. Also I couldn’t get the globe back on the ceiling fixture and he returned as a favor to take care of it. Who else does that? We’re looking forward to having him back for more renovating. Thanks Eric and Mercy Painting ?% with 5 plus stars Bob C North End Boston"

    "Not only was Silas a pleasure to deal with, but his attention to detail was truly extraordinary. He restored my aging deck beyond what I thought was possible. I hired him to stain my deck, but what I got was really restoration. He trimed the shrubs encroaching on the deck, thoroughly pressure, washed it, spent over a day on his knees sanding the deck, replaced rotten boards and then gave it two sprayed on coats of stain. I will be hiring Silas again to do some interior painting for me as well. I canâ  t praise the quality of his work more."

    "Diego and his team at Vallen Pro are the best around! We needed all of the common areas of our home and our kitchen cabinets painted. It was a huge job. His team tackled two-story walls, vaulted ceilings, doors, window endless trim and wainscoting, crown molding, a tall brick fireplace, and knotty pine which is very difficult to paint over. Diego had the best price of all the quotes I sourced and was awesome to work with. He is great at keeping in constant contact so I never had any questions about what he and his team were doing â at the beginning of the day we would confirm next steps on the project, and at the end of the day we would review progress and make sure everything was perfect. I canâ t tell you how many times he said, â I want you to be 100% happyâ . I was nervous about having our kitchen cabinets painted but they look like theyâ re factory finish and Iâ m very happy with the final product. Heâ s meticulous with his work and takes great pride in the quality and end-result of his projects which is all you can ask for when trusting someone with your home."

    "Mine was not just a repair. Substantial work to correct serious flaws in the original construction was needed. Not only did they correct the original flaws. They made significant improvements. Finally, they really knew what they were doing when it came time to install the deck boards to fit around existing concrete structures. JUST PERFECT. Highly recommended them."

    "George did a painstaking restoration and repair job on 100+ year old window sashes, frames and doors. Not only are the windows now outstanding to look at, but they really function. Before his work, the top window would fall down if unlocked and the bottom half of the wondow wouldn't stay up...I'd have to prop things. We live in a historic district where changing out windows is limited, and this was a great fix! He painted a paneled room, including the ceiling, which now looks amazingly good. George also repaired/resurfaced all of my second floor trim. He is polite, thorough, and an artisan. His prices are very reasonable. RECOMMENDED!"

    "In a time where thereâ s so many options at our disposal, sometimes itâ s hard to choose the right person for a job. I had to repaint 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 hallways to a new modern color. James was professional, courteous and diligent, while also not breaking the bank.

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.
