Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many professional painters provide interior and exterior painting, plus supplementary services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting experts will talk you through the different types of interior paint, types of paint finishes, and maintenance needs to help you determine what’s best for each room. Services may include prepping, priming, and painting moldings, trim, windows, cabinets, and door frames. Optional pre-painting preparation such as stripping wallpaper or textured coatings may lead to additional charges.

Exterior Painting

Professional painters start exterior jobs by repairing weather damage, stripping old paint, sealing leaks with caulk, and washing walls. They then paint decks, doors, window frames, fences, siding, trim, and other outdoor features.

Additional Services

Painters may also provide 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 Chula Vista

As you assess residential painting companies, consider these key factors.

  • Cost: Ask for estimates from at least three painters. Use caution if one installer's rates are much lower than others.
  • Guarantees: Make sure you get all guarantees in writing and that you know the scope and duration of coverage.
  • Paint types: Your painter can advise you on the different paint choices and their advantages and disadvantages to help you choose the best option for your needs. Certain paint types, for instance, protect against weather damage more effectively or are better for the environment.
  • 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 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 family, friends, and neighbors for references, or use the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website to review painters you’re considering. You can also read customer ratings on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Chula Vista?

The price of professional painting work varies by the square footage of your home, the paint categories chosen, and the season. Most painters increase their rates during the summer due to increased demand. The typical cost of both interior and exterior painting ranges from $0.85 to $3.40 per square foot. Since most homes have more inside than outside space, painting the interior is generally more expensive than painting the exterior. For a 2,000-square-foot home in Chula Vista, you can expect to pay around $4,253 to paint the outside and $1,701 to $6,804 to paint the interior. Some painters in Chula Vista may offer alternative rates of $18.05 to $30.08 per hour. Bundling exterior and interior painting services together may mean paying less overall than you would if you split them into separate projects.
