    Services Offered by Professional Painters

    Most professional painters offer both interior and exterior painting, plus additional services.

    Interior Painting

    Professional interior painters will guide you through different types of interior paints availible, paint finishes, and maintenance requirements to help you decide which paint is best for your space. They'll prepare and paint your trim, door frames, moldings, cabinets, and windows, depending on what your project requires. Some painters will remove existing or outdated wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an additional fee.

    Exterior Painting

    Before exterior painting, painters mend weathering damage, strip old paint, seal leaks with caulk, and clean walls. They follow by painting siding, fences, doors, trim, window frames, decks, and additional outdoor areas.

    Additional Services

    Painting contractors may also offer the following services, depending on their training and experience:
    • Concrete staining
    • Crown molding installation and repair
    • Drywall and plaster repair
    • Popcorn ceiling removal
    • Pressure washing
    • Wallpaper hanging or removal

    How To Choose a Painter in Lake Havasu City

    Below is what you should consider while deciding which residential painter to hire:
    • Cost: Request quotes from a few companies before deciding. Be wary if one company offers substantially lower rates than others.
    • Guarantees: Get all guarantees in writing and ensure you understand which items are covered and for how long.
    • Paint types: Ask your paint pro to walk through paint selections in detail, including the positives and negatives of each. This will help you determine the best option for your project. Some paints have better weather resistance or use more environmentally friendly formulas.
    • Qualifications: Painters in Arizona must be licensed by the Registrar of Contractors to work on jobs valued at over $5,000. To obtain a license, painters must hold a surety bond, pass a knowledge exam, and provide proof of experience. In addition to the bond, always confirm that your painter has sufficient liability insurance, especially if they’re working with power equipment or on ladders. If your home was built before 1978, and you're concerned about the presence of lead, you might look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
    • Reputation and reviews: Ask for references from family and friends, and look at the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of providers you’re considering. You can also find ratings on sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Lake Havasu City?

    The price to paint your home will depend on your home’s square footage, the paint you choose, and the month. Painters generally charge more in the busy summer season. The typical price for both interior and exterior home painting in Lake Havasu City is $0.82 to $3.29 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior space than exterior space, which leads to higher indoor painting expenses compared to exterior painting costs. For a 2,000-square-foot home, expect to pay about $4,118 to paint the exterior, and anywhere from $1,647 to $6,589 to paint the interior. Lake Havasu City's local painters may offer alternative rates from $17.17 to $28.61 per hour. Bundling interior and exterior painting services together can mean lower overall costs than if you'd split them into separate projects.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Lake Havasu City

    How long does it take to paint a room/house?

    It takes approximately four to six hours to paint a 12-foot-by-12-foot room, and you can multiply this times the number of rooms you have to determine how long the entire job will take. This time estimate includes prep work, priming, painting, and cleanup.

    Should you tip house painters?

    You're not normally expected to tip painters, but it's polite to offer a small tip or a positive review for good service. Many homeowners also offer painters a simple breakfast or lunch while the crew is in their home.

    Can you negotiate with professional painters?

    You can sometimes negotiate with painting professionals, especially if you have a flexible timeline or have received multiple quotes to compare. If you choose to negotiate, remember to be friendly and polite.

    Is hiring a professional painter worth it?

    Yes, hiring a professional painter is worth it. While there are many painting jobs you can handle yourself, you'll get better results faster when you hire a professional.

    What should a painting quote include?

    A painting quote should include a lit of all areas that need to be prepped and painted, the approximate dimensions of those surfaces, and expected labor and material costs.
