    "Look no further than to the Bob "The Builder", head of Turnkey Construction for your home renovation needs. Bob Mogan is a master craftsman and jack of all trades. Heà à à à ¢à à à à à à à às your framer, carpenter, electrician, plumber, etc. His daughter Rebecca has the eye for design and handles the finer details of paint, spackle, caulk, sanding, and finish work. Turnkey is a family team. Because of this youà à à à ¢à à à à à à à à re going to get great craftsmanship at a great price. But know that Bob runs a small operation (he does almost everything himself) and it will require the time needed to get the job done right. Bob has practically lived with us and become part of the family for more than 6 months typically working 6 days a week. So when you hire him, be ready to commit to constant professional work in your space with little pause. Bob has a network or suppliers who are the most affordable quality professionals in town. We tried to comparison shop and failed, donà à à à ¢à à à à à à à à t bother! We were universally impressed with the suppliers he set us up with. No job is too big for Bob! This grizzled gruff old Irishman renovated practically our entire home. He built and plumbed a full bath in our second story guest suite out of nothing, renovated another bathroom and bedroom, and built a second floor living room above our first floor adding valuable square footage, and painted the entire house on top of it all. The results and pictures tell the story! Plus, Bob created built in cabinets and shelves for us, installed moulding and trim, pocket and barn doors, finished attic space, ran media cables through walls, and more! Hereà à à à ¢à à à à à à à às my pro tip when working with Bob or any contractor: Download reference pictures of the kind of space youà à à à ¢à à à à à à à à re trying to create off of the internet so that they can visualize your idea and get all the details right. Contractors aren't mind-readers. Bob can create anything and will do it expertly, if you want it done a specific way be sure to overcommunicate with him so he knows exactly what you're going for. Bottom line: Turnkey Construction should be your go to renovation specialist in the Franklin area. Expert craftsmanship at an affordable price!"

    "For my job, Doug had to contend with one of the most difficult tasks for painters scraping, skim coating, sanding and painting a water-damaged 6x16 foot ceiling area. Anyone who has ever tried to hold their arms up for even 30 minutes would know what a painful job this was and which took 3 days to complete. To his credit, Doug never complained and never despaired of the job and, to my knowledge, did not even take more than a few moments of breaks every few hours (probably trying to get some circulation back). I found Doug to be thorough, diligent, exacting of his work, and extremely nice to be around. After a particularly long, 13 hour last day, Doug spent 2 ½ hours thoroughly cleaning my living room and did not leave until the room was spotless. I heartily recommend him without reservation."

Every day he would finish by cleaning up like he was never there. Just an overall great experience. We plan and hiring him again when we decide to paint the upstairs rooms"

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.
