    "I hired the Wright Miller for a couple home projects involving deck staining, wood filling, and painting my inside door casing. I was not only happy with the outcome for all three, but especially impressed at the before and after difference of the rotting wood that was replaced in one area and filled in another. My decks now look brand new and beautiful, and I could not be happier. While Deen did all of the difficult labor, I felt like I was in charge the entire time. Moreover, he kept me informed during the whole process and didn't accept payment until the job was finished to my liking. He really cares about the projects he takes on and his customers. To be sure, he not only dropped the price down a bit, but he also has made arrangements to survey the decks every 6 months until a year after the completion of the project. Some handyman services charge for an estimate or for a visit, but not the Wright Miller! All of their estimates are at no charge to the customer, which is a win-win. The Wright Miller will be my go-to for all future home projects."

    "We hired Will to replace a damaged plaster ceiling with drywall in a bedroom to prepare it to be a nursery. He also painted the walls of the room. Will and his guys were professional, friendly, and communicated well, and were very respectful of our home, including going above and beyond to clean the soot from the old insulation off of surfaces in the hallway, etc at the end of each day. We needed to make a scheduling change at the last minute and Will was understanding and accommodating. None of this stuff matters though if the end result isn't good, but the level of professionalism usually matches the quality of the work. In this case, that holds true. We are very happy with the work that Will and the guys did and definitely recommend them to others."

Living room, dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms, one bathroom, two powder rooms, five closets, stairway to basement, and basement game room. Also did ceilings in entire house. Two coats on everything and a variety of different colors. I would recommend Ray and his crew of six for any large painting project. They were very friendly and polite and did an outstanding job."

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.

    Comment: My small bathroom needs to be repainted. I had it painted about 5 years ago, and the person did a lousy job, using only one coat of paint. The baseboards were neglected and need to be painted, too. I have several other paint jobs at the house that I'd love to get quotes for in the future (including a large stairwell and some exterior trim painting), but I'm on a budget and starting small.
