    "Very professional from start to finish. I have hired painters for two other homes in the past three years. One of them also bid this project. Above and Beyond bid nearly the same price but their level of house prep and overall quality was MUCH higher. I would definitely hire them again. Very detailed and with extensive knowledge of prepping and products on the market. End result is excellent."

    "We have used the Emerald crew to paint two homes. Each was a whole house (interior and exterior) paint job and they turned out wonderful. However, the care they used with painting the kitchen and bathroom cabinets (remodel work) produced a finished product in our present home that far exceeded our expectations."

    "I hired Adrian of ADI Painting initially for an exterior paint only. The scope grew to include an interior whole house paint job (inclusive of doors) and kitchen cabinet respray due to the honesty, competence and partnership that he, his brother and their crew engendered. I would not look anywhere else for my painting needs now or in the future. The ADI Painting crew oats attention to details, provides you their honest opinions and recommendations and makes the walkthrough a breeze, largely because there is nothing to fix after the job is complete."

    "We very much enjoyed working with Ihor and the rest of the Yelson crew. They worked quickly but without cutting corners, addressing the smallest of details with an eye for perfection. Our basement flooring project required quite a bit of leveling with cement, which created some unique problems, but each hurdle was considered carefully and at times creatively to produce a quality and long-lasting result. We were so pleased with their work that we immediately hired them for another project refreshing our tired front deck. Very professional, personable, and highly recommendable."

    "We are very pleased with the painting work our contractor, SHANCO Restoration Services, performed on our home recently. Our two-story home, including the basement, was originally constructed in 1990. We moved to this house in 2014. The house was apparently last painted in 2011 and the paint and siding itself were still in pretty good shape, except the color didnâ t suit us. To ensure our expectations were met, we prepared a detailed Scope of Work upon which bids were solicited (including the make, â model,â and color of paint to be used). We required 2 coats of both the base color and the trim color. We received 6 wide-ranging bids. Although its bid was â middle-of-the-pack,â SHANCOâ s bid actually incorporated our Scope into its bid document, which gave us confidence our desires would be followed. So we awarded them the contract. Most of the house has LP composite siding, so the painters had to be very careful when pressure washing. Although the old paint wasnâ t pealing, the high bidder actually wanted to strip the old paint; this process would likely have required us to fully re-side the house given the fragility of the LP siding! The cleaning, masking and painting work took only 5 days! The size of SHANCOâ s highly-qualified crews varied, depending on the work required any particular day. And as expected, the workers were very cooperative in following the Scope, right down to the smallest detail for masking trim boundaries. They tarped-over adjacent landscaping, concrete surfaces and our new TREX deck to prevent over-spray. The workers were very professional, competent, and friendly to us. They graciously touched-up areas we pointed out. When the painting was completed, they were very diligent in removing all masking materials and cleaning our yard and concrete surfaces of debris. We definitely recommend SHANCO to anyone with an exterior painting project, and we would be happy to use them in the future!"

    "James was quick to provide a quote, and to do the work. His bid was also less than another we had received. We had an old heating duct removed from a wall in our living room, as well as sconces hardwired in and were therefore left with some holes to have patched up—but it was quick work for James. He was punctual and a great communicator. He did a fantastic job. Once we paint we won't even know there was a repair. He's also a pleasure to chat with. I recommend him highly. He also does lots of other work beyond drywall so there's no doubt we'll hire him for our next projects. (I've included before and after photos for your viewing pleasure)."

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.
