    "Wonderful experience! Sunnyside Painting recently painted the entire interior of my home. They take pride in their work, showed up on time, had great communication, and were priced fairly. The rooms that I had painted turned out beautifully. I changed my mind with one color and Sunnyside was extremely accommodating with this change. Gene, Andre, and the entire team were friendly, professional, and trustworthy. I fully recommend them for any paint job that you have."

    "Although I missed our first appointment, Gilbert was willing to circle back and meet me. He was on time and gave a professional estimate prior to having the crew come work. Although conditions were just barely manageable, raining after the snowy days in January and they finished the work to save my wall from more dry rot. They replaced the plywood, applied the proper vapor barrier and waited for dry conditions to paint with the color of one of the old boards they took with them to match. I had a few other areas that the roofers goofed up with paint and they are going to come back and do that for me at their hourly rate. I should have asked how much that was but anyway I'm sure it will be fair. :-) Vicki"

    "I was extremely happy with the work done by D&N. Eusebio was a delight to work with. He gave me a very fair estimate on the work, and did a great job. One thing I really appreciated was him noticing and alerting me to some wood rot that could have been a hazard. He was able to do the repair in addition to the great paint job. Again, very fair estimate and quality work. Highly recommend and have told several friends about D&N. I will definitely hire again for future painting jobs."

    "We hired Pinnacle for a concrete project and a fence project. Andrew and Mike came up with creative solutions to make both projects work in spite of uneven ground, rocks in the clay, and a sloping property line. The concrete pad next to the deck is a beautiful home for our new hot tub - and they installed a French drain too! The horizontal plank fence surrounding our property is absolutely gorgeous and expertly constructed. 100 degree weather understandably added some time to the fence project but they worked hard when they could and the results are beautiful. Bids were very detailed, contracts signed electronically, great communication before and during projects, creative modifications and solutions, and very friendly and professional. Highly recommend. Looking forward to hiring Pinnacle for ongoing projects."

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.
