    Tile Specialist, Drywall Install And Repair, Plaster Install and Repair

    "I hired Austin who owns/works with A+ Maintenance to paint the living room in my $700K home. My living room is not just four walls and a ceiling; it has 10 lumens in each door of French doors going into a formal sitting room, another door with 15 lumens going into my home office, a brick fireplace from floor to ceiling, a door-sized window with French door-style plantation shutters looking out onto my patio, and another door going into my kitchen. It has beautiful base and crown molding around the entire room, befitting of a home of this quality. Austin and his partner, Steven, took on all of the challenges, they listened well to what I wanted, they asked the right questions, they communicated extremely well with me and each other, and 5 working days later, they delivered to me a product that is absolutely stunning in its appearance and a room that I am extremely proud of. The walls are without any blemishes, the moldings, the French doors, the louvers on the plantation shutters, the brick fireplace, and the other doors are all gorgeous and finished at a level that simply elevates the entire home. I would absolutely recommend these two professional painters to anyone for any painting project they need to have done in their home. I enjoyed having them in my own home and will call on them again to do future projectsâ ¦"

    "Victor's Team LLC replaced all the dry wall in my condo after a very cold spell burst 2 water pipes while I was out of town, After the dry wall was installed it was sanded and primed for painting then painted. The walls and ceilings look like new again! Victor was very informative about the whole process and was able to answer my many questions. Victor and his teams were always on time and worked hard and long to finish the project quickly. I would recommend him to friends who needed drywall repair/installation and painting."

    "I met Rodis and his wife Esmeralda on a Thursday to for an estimate. They were on time, guaged the nature of the work, and gathered details required for an estimate. Esmeralda also helped to give me tips on some finishing touches I can do myself, as well as, helped ensure the paint colors would work in the space. I leaned heavily on Esmeralda's interior design skill to ensure the two paints I chose would work well and she did and absolutely outstanding job reccomending which walls should be painted which color. Rodis provided me a very reasonable estimate by the next day and after providing some work examples, I chose to hire them. We agreed on a date and they showed up on-time, well-prepared, and engaged. Esmeralda paid close attention to detail and even moved my appliances so they could paint behind them - a detail I missed. They were considerate with my furniture, friendly, and did an absolutely outstanding job. Once wrapped up, they cleaned up everything, which was done beyond my expectation, and had me do a walk-through. Renovation Plus went above and beyond on this job and tailored their service to my needs. I would absolutely do business with them again in the future and reccomend anyone considering them to allow them opportunity to work with you. I'm beyond pleased with the entire seamless transaction, quality of the work, and time to complete. Thank you Rodis and Esmeralda!"

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.
