    furniture finish and repair

    "We had moved in our new home and had a nearly 100 year old Armoire that seemed out of place due to its condition. My wife thought it was worth keeping and suggested we get it refinished. I was skeptical. I thought it would be too costly and still not fit it with what I imagined for the room. Nevertheless, I looked up companies that indicated that they restored old furniture. Paul from White Owl returned my call and offered to come out and look at the piece. The other companies ask me to photograph the Armoire and based on that they estimated the cost. Paul came out and did a thorough examination of the piece. He was very knowledgeable about the different woods that were used in the construction of the piece. He also indicated that he could complete the job within 2 weeks, while the other firms said it would take from 6 weeks to 2 months. Again I was skeptical. Some of other firms I contacted were older and were known to me, but didnâ t seem to show the interest or the knowledge of my piece of furniture. Paulâ s estimate was neither the highest or the lowest we received. Ultimately, it came down to my wife and I trusting Paul. I am pleased to say our trust was not misplaced. Paul delivered our piece yesterday and I canâ t believe it looked better when purchased nearly a century ago. Itâ s a beautiful addition to our new home. All of the scratches and gouges from years of abuse are gone. The original brass hardware has been polished and looks wonderful. We werenâ t concerned so much about the interior, but thatâ s been refinished as well. I was curious about the company that made the piece. Paul researched the more the one hundred year old company and gave us a written history of the company. I wish my late uncle could see how beautifully restored his armoire is, it belonged to his mother. It was the one piece of furniture he kept from her home. I would recommend this company to anyone who has a piece of furniture that looks like itâ s seen itâ s best days. Not only has a piece of furniture been restored, but memories of family members who loved this piece of furniture have also been restored. Thank you White Owl Studio. Richard L. Catonsville, MD"

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.
