    "Saul Marquez and his crew from Marquez Home Improvement saved the day after a water overflow problem from the upstairs bath caused damage to the first level below. The overflow poured through air vents and light fixtures into the downstairs kitchen and dining room. They had the highest recommendations, gave me the best bid, handled the job with ease, expertise and honesty and finished in 6 days, before the first insurance check arrived! They always showed up on time, finished ahead of schedule and did outstanding, focused work. The place looks great ! It was then I realized the exterior needed attention also. So, they painted it. Without question, the value of the home has increased!"

    "Now living in my Golden Years, I have had many opportunities to experience contractors of all sorts working on and in my home. Without hesitation, I would consider David Stanley Residential & Commercial Painters among the (if not THE) best I have ever dealt with. I needed exterior painting and minor repairs and this is one of the many companies I researched. I was reluctant to use them at first since their ratings were not as favorable as many others. Nevertheless, when I saw the work they had done in the neighborhood (including work done for my next-door neighbor), I was impressed. Before, during, and after the project, this companyâ s performance ticked off every single box for things I look for in a contractor: excellent communication, reasonable cost, high- quality materials, meticulous workmanship, attention to detail, excellent cleanup, and professional & friendly employees. The most impressive quality to me, however, as compared to similar contractors Iâ ve used over the years, was their work ethic. It was the first contractor I can ever recall who put in a full dayâ s work every day of the week. Others Iâ ve used would start mid-morning and finish for the day in mid-afternoon and frequently did not work Fridays. David Stanley and his crew literally worked from daylight to dark every day until the project was done. I like that. At the projectâ s end, I told Mr. Stanley how pleased I was but also how reluctant I had been based on his lukewarm reviews. He told me he had many very well-satisfied customers, but few took the time to write reviews. I agree and it is unfortunate that many people have no problem making the effort to complain, but choose too often not to report their good and successful experiences. This review is intended to give credit where credit is due."

    "Alvin and one of his crew, Reggie, painted our laundry room, kitchen, hallway, hall bath and a utility closet, 4 doors and all the trim and base boards. They also refinished some stained cabinets and touched up some worn areas as well. It was a pleasure to have both of these gentleman in my home. They were polite, professional, incredibly neat and quietly went about their work over a period of 2 1/2 days. When they were finished there was not one drop of paint in the wrong place. Reggie who has been with Alvin for 10 years is a master at painting trim. When I did a final check of the project everything was perfect. I definitely recommend this company and plan to hire them in the future."

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.
