    Interior Painting or Staining, Popcorn Acoustic Ceiling Texture - Apply or Remove, Drywall - Install and Repair

    "We are extremely happy with the work that Brooks did for us. He was hired to paint the walls, closets, trim and doors. He was professional and took great care in prepping the painting projects which included some patching, sanding and drywall repair. We were surprised to hear that he could paint our old bathroom tile (1950's) and our ugly kitchen cupboards too. What a transformation. The finished painting jobs gave the house an amazing facelift. Since we were preparing our house to sell we asked him to replace the original tile ceiling in our basement and then recessed lighting was added. He framed in the basement, installing drywall to make a homey family room. That finished project not only looked great but it increased the value of our home. We had a timeline for completion and Brooks' commitment and respect, gave us the assurance that he would accommodate and he was there every step of the way. He communicated frequently, asking specifics prior to moving ahead with ahead with a task, by phone, text and/or email. He was committed to us and when we asked if he could do a 'few' extra projects, he was on task and did a wonderful job. The big projects and extra jobs were all finished on time. We still can't believe how well everything turned out. Our house listed for sale on a Friday and we received 5 offers that same weekend! If you're looking for a painter, drywall or ceiling install/repair contractor, you need to look no farther! We have the utmost respect for Brooks and he is your guy. Brooks is available for small and large jobs. Contact him today for a quote - you won't be disappointed. Tom and Jan"

    "We had a great experience with Durahome Painting Plus. Our project involved repairing cracks and ice dam damage in a first floor bedroom; applying skim coats to the walls and ceilings; adding picture rail; and finally priming and painting the walls, ceiling and trim. Cody was professional, detail-oriented, and very responsive, as was his painting and plastering crew. They were also very good about covering the floors throughout our house to minimize mess and damage, and they did a great job cleaning up once the project was finished. There were a few minor flaws in the skim coat and paint job but nothing that really required a redo, especially given that they were working with old plaster and trim with many previous layers of paint. This company provides quality service at a fair price - we will definitely use them for future projects and we would recommend them to anyone in need of interior or exterior painting services."

I interviewed several paint crews for this job but I was most impressed with A Lasting Impression. Ryan was very thorough and noticed alot of things the other painters missed. He had great ideas for saving money and his crew was able to assist us with other jobs around the house as well. They did an excellent job and met every deadline I set. We ordered all new carpet and they worked long hours to get the painting done before the carpet arrived. I will be hiring them again in the future and would give them my highest recommendation."

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.
