    "After our own attempts to conceal 30 years of smoke damage from previous owners failed, we called Dripless, and we are so glad we did! They were able to completely eradicate the awful smell that was seeping from the old paint and really brought the home back to life. We will be using them for future projects and have already recommended them to multiple friends!"

    "John and his team were absolutely exceptional! If I could give more STARS I would! I am so so thankful I came across his company because our house turned out absolutely amazing. I mean the transformation was breath taking. We had just recently bought our home, but it definitely needed some TLC, along with new updates, such as all new window trim, baseboard trim and every room needed fresh paint. We certainly didnâ t give John an easy project as we wanted all our wood doors, and windows painted as well. Not to mention, multiple carpentry projects that came up along the way that John was so flexible and willing to tackle to make us happy. We originally had hired someone to install all new LVP in the entire home, but it wasnâ t installed right and seriously was a nightmare, but John came in and fixed that problem too and we are beyond grateful. We all know living in a house during any renovation- especially with two kids isnâ t enjoyable or easy, but I honestly can tell you that John was so down to earth to work with that he made it fun and enjoyable! John and his team always cleaned up after each day and made sure everything was put away nicely, so our kids wouldnâ t get hurt or get into anything. John and his team were so courteous with all our stuff and made sure everything was covered accordingly. We had endless amounts of damage on the wall from stripping wall paper to massive holes in the walls and John meticulously fixed it all!!! I mean it literally looks like a new house. If you are looking for a painter/carpenter- LOOK NO FURTHER! John certainly takes pride in his work and his ultimate goal was to make us happy and he sure accomplished that and more! I typically donâ t write reviews because life sometimes just gets too busy, but I felt I had to because of how happy I was with Johnâ s work. I hope this review can alleviate some of the stress from the difficult decisions that comes with finding someone incredibly talented and who you can trust. John will go above and beyond with any project you give him!!"

    "Jesus & Jesus did an excellent job. They painted my entire interior including closets and a room in the basement. I would definitely hire them again. They were very respectful of my house and even did a few extra things that needed to be done such as replacing missing baseboard. Nick (the owner) was here periodically watching over them and in touch with me almost daily. In all they were a great team. You can't go wrong with these guys!"

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.
