What Are the Rates of Choosing a Pro Painting Company?

The cost for professional home painting services can alter depending on many components. The paint job’s size is one of the largest cost factors. Interior residential painting work costs around $3.50 per square foot, while outside residential painting jobs can cost, on average, $1.50 to $4 per square foot.

How Height Ups Home Painting Costs

When paint contractors have to paint higher areas on a residence to complete work, the total can go up. This is because paint professionals have to put up scaffolding and use ladders and other tools to reach higher surfaces. That’s more manual labor, which raises prices. Some contractors might also pay employees an additional fee to account for riskier services.

When painters must work above 8 feet, for example, the cost can go up by 30%, on average. Services that necessitate working over 19 feet can drive prices by around 120%.

Other Elements That Impact Residential Painting Service Costs

Height and overall size aren’t the only components that can determine price. Location plays a big role, as painting services cost more or less determined on the state and city you’re in. The choice of paint also determines price, as premium or high-end paint totals more. If employees must perform more repair or prep work than expected, such as double priming over a dark wall or replacing rotten siding boards, the price may also rise.

Tips to Ensure You Hire a Painting Contractor Sufficient for Your Needs

While there may be lots of painting companies in Winston Salem, some won’t meet your residential painting needs. Take steps when vetting painting professionals to ensure that the potential businesses on your list meet your needs.

Finally, any painting company you consider for your project must have the availability to handle your painting project within the timeline you have in mind. If the painting contractor is not available until a later date, make sure that you’re comfortable with waiting. If you’re on a strict timeline, then waiting may not be feasible.

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.

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.
