    Interior and Exterior Painting

    "Branden( owner) was very professional and informative. His staff was courteous, on time and did a great job. They came out within a couple of days of calling and helped fixed a kitchen that needed a lot of work. My bedroom ceiling and walls were very poor looking and now look wonderful. I am very pleased and highly recommend Elliott"s Painting. Very pleased"

    "Ivan, Sarai, Ismael and others were fantastic to work with. I hired New Generation to paint the interior of my condo. They did a fantastic job and I'm so very pleased with the results. I had lots of questions and they were very patient with me. They explained the steps they would take and I learned a lot about different grades of paint, wall textures, etc. Outstanding customer service. Punctual as well. Will hire them again when I get my kitchen cabinets done next year. If you need any painting work done, I HIGHLY recommend New Generation Painting. You won't be disappointed."

    "We highly recommend Gabino and his team s services. Not only was the price competitive, but they were very attentive, candid, and knowledgeable. From going through our existing supplies to see what was usable for the paint job to going to a famous, home appliance store with us to select high quality paint to protecting our furnishings while painting our front door and gates, his team was top-notch. Gabino even went above and beyond and helped us install new door seals and door knobs free of charge. We would gladly hire his team for future jobs."

    "Paradise Painting did an excellent job repainting the exterior of my house. Adrian was very professional in all aspects of the job. Major prep was needed on the wood siding in the front. He did not rush the job, making sure the walls were fully dry and prepped before applying the paint. Excellent clean up afterwards. I would definitely reuse them again."

    Deb W. in March 2022


    "Precise Touch is the BEST! They repainted our badly weathered trim and facia boards. The surfaces were in really bad shape. They did a very thorough job on the prep work, scraping, filling and priming. When they did the finish coat they masked areas that other painters might have merely "cut in" with a brush. The result far exceeds my expectations. If you need a professional, excellent painter...THIS IS IT!"

    "OMG, this is hands down the best contractor team you will ever have the pleasure of working for you should you decide to use them. They can do any type of work you need. We had them pull old carpet, put in hardwood floors, paint, put in crown molding. Paint the outside of the house, fix the garage before painting, fix the back door and front door, so they are airtight, fix the white picket fence, move the mailbox and re-post it, put in a ceiling fan, install electrical lines, paint the porch, fix some cabinets, put in a beam on the porch, and so on as part of some remodeling. I could not possibly have had all this work done if they had not been extremely reasonable. I love the guys on this team. I trust every single one of them and Rolando has a better personality than any contractor I have ever worked with. Not only that he is honest and trustworthy. He does not ask for anything up front. Their work speaks for itself. All I can say is that I hate even posting this because I do not want them so busy I cannot get them to come back to my house. Honestly, these are the guys you want."

    "I am so very happy I went with this company. Their work is amazing. Their guys are very good painters. Some of the best I have seen. Sung is extremely professional and reasonable with his prices. You get more than your moneys worth. My home looks so beautiful now. Thank you to Sung and his Father and the amazing crew Jeison, Marc and Ronald. Iâ m also in the trades (Plumber). Sung was the first and only one that was not trying to swindle me. Old school business practices where men work for their money. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Kevin West."

    "We have had some storm damage on our singles since El Nino hit us in 2018. Ever since, weâ ve been having leaks, and I honestly didnâ t bother getting it fixed. That was a big mistake on my end because recently weâ ve been experiencing some mold growth in our attic & ceiling. Thatâ s when I made the call to Journey Builders, and they ended up repairing my shingles and taking care of the mold problem.

    "I've had J&D Painting do two different jobs for me: first, a complete exterior painting of my house; and secondly, the removal of a popcorn ceiling, retexturing and repainting of the ceiling, and then painting of that room. Work was excellent, people arrived on time, and it easy to work with David and the team members. What I also liked was that when during the exterior painting I needed some stucco work, and also needed replacement of the old gutters and some roof repair, David had excellent contacts. And prices were reasonable!"

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.
