    "Jose, who owns jc painting, painted the exterior of our 3000 ft.² home in June and then we had to come back and painted all of our 11 rooms in our house and finished this morning. Jose did an excellent job, he showed up every morning at 7 oâ clock with his crew, cleaned up at the end of every day and did a great job. My wife had him do four walls with the venetian finish, similar to a diamond finish, and she absolutely loves the way the walls look.I have used a lot of painters in the last 35 years and by far Jose has done the best job."

    Landscaping, lawn care

    "Jose was extremely pleasant to work with. He listened to the concerns I had with a tree that was struck by lightening and did an excellent job with removing dead or dying limbs and branches. Clean up and hauling away debris was excellent. He even took the time to show and explain to a concerned neighbor what he was doing and why it needed to be done that way. I appreciated that because my neighbor (who knows much more about this than I do) was able to assure me that Jose was doing the right thing. One of the most important things that Jose happened to be available immediately while others couldn’t schedule for 10 days. I appreciate him for really listening to what I wanted. He also removed weeds from my landscape and replaced a small concrete slab that had deteriorated. I will use him for work in the future and I highly recommend him."

    "We hired Javier and his crew (Juan and Cesar) to redo our wood floors (sand, seal, and coat) and to repaint our ceilings in the downstairs. We were so happy with their paint job that we extended the job to do most of the walls. In all their work, they were efficient, doing an excellent job. They also did a careful job in covering surfaces to minimize the dust and they cleaned up afterwards. On the floor, we were originally unhappy with the color of the stain they used, and Javier made a special trip to Albuquerque to consult with the wholesaler. He gave us two final examples and we chose one that came out beautifully closely matching what we had before. One of the reasons we went with All Star flooring was that they agreed to move all the furniture that was necessary, and to replace it back when the work was done. They did this with care and worked to minimize the effect on us, allowing us to use our living space as much as possible. In both the painting and the floor work, they inspected with us to find any missed spots which they corrected quickly. All in all, we were very pleased with the work they did and can highly recommend them to others. We will bring them back to do more painting in the future."

    "When I put in an inquiry they responded immediately. Any communication I had with them was responded to quickly. They were punctual everyday and cleaned up after themselves daily. We were very pleased with the way everything turned out. Their workmanship was excellent. The tile work we had done was a backsplash in our kitchen and the tile surround in the tub-shower area. I would recommend this company."

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.
