Services Offered by Professional Painters

Most professional painting services offer interior and exterior painting, plus other services.

Interior Painting

Professional interior painters will guide you through various interior paints availible, paint finishes, and maintenance requirements to help you determine which paint works best for your space. They'll prepare and paint your cabinets, trim, moldings, door frames, and windows, depending on what your project calls for. Some painters will remove any existing wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an extra charge.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painting contractors may also offer the following extra services, depending on their qualifications 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 Castro Valley

When selecting a residential painting company, consider these key factors.

  • Cost: Talk to a few companies to get price estimates. Be wary of unusually cheap prices compared to the average.
  • Guarantees: Ensure that 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 determine 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 with power equipment or on ladders. If your home was built prior to 1978, and you're worried about the possible presence of lead, you might look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Obtain references from family, friends, and neighbors, or check out the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of local painting companies. You can also read customer ratings on websites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Castro Valley?

Most homes have greater interior surface area than exterior surface area, which means the cost to paint inside will be more expensive than the cost to paint outside.
