Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many professional painters provide interior painting, exterior painting, and extra services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting specialists will review the different types of interior paint, types of paint finishes, and maintenance needs to assist you in determining what’s best for each room. Services could include prepping, priming, and painting trim, door frames, windows, moldings, and cabinets. Optional pre-painting preparation such as removing wallpaper or textured coatings may lead to additional charges.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painters may also offer the following additional services, depending on their training and skills:

  • 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 Altadena

Below is what you should consider while choosing which residential painting company to hire:

  • Cost: Get estimates from a few companies before deciding. Be wary if one contractor offers substantially lower rates than others.
  • Guarantees: Make sure you get a written contract outlining any guarantees and that you understand the duration and scope of coverage.
  • Paint types: Ask your paint pro to go over paint selections in detail, covering the positives and negatives of each. This will help you select the best option for your project. Some paints have better weather resistance or use more environmentally friendly formulas.
  • Qualifications: Painters who work on jobs valued at over $500 must be licensed by the California Contractors State License Board. To obtain this license, a contractor must have proof of experience and must have workers' compensation insurance if they have employees. Any contractor you hire should be properly bonded and insured, particularly if they’re working on a ladder or using power equipment. If your home was built before 1978, and you're worried about the possible presence of lead, consider looking for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Get family, friends, and neighbors to provide references, or use the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website to browse companies you’re considering. You can also browse customer ratings on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Altadena?

The price to paint your home will vary based on your home’s square footage, the paint you select, and the season. Painters oftentimes quote more in the busy summer season. The typical price for both interior and exterior home painting in Altadena is $0.84 to $3.37 per square foot. Most homes have more interior space compared to exterior space, which results in higher indoor painting costs compared to exterior painting costs. For a 2,000-square-foot home, anticipate paying about $4,218 to paint the exterior, and anywhere from $1,687 to $6,749 to paint the interior. Alternatively, Altadena's local painters may charge hourly rates between $17.82 and $29.71. It usually costs less in total to schedule exterior and interior painting together rather than as separate services.
