Services Offered by Professional Painters

Most professional painting contractors provide interior and exterior painting, plus other services.

Interior Painting

Professional interior painting companies can assist you in deciding on interior paint types, textures, and finishes, and can educate you on care requirements to figure out what works best where. They'll prep, prime, and paint moldings, windows, cabinets, trim, and door frames. Some professionals provide wallpaper or textured finish stripping for an added fee.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painters may also offer the following extra 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 Colton

As you evaluate painting contractors, 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 painting contractor to explain various paint options, including the pros and cons of each, to help you make an informed decision. Some options are designed for specific needs, such as weather-resistant or eco-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 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: 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 find customer ratings on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Colton?

The cost of professional painting work is influenced by the square footage of your home, the paint brands 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 averages $0.79 to $3.15 per square foot. Since most homes have greater interior than exterior space, painting the interior typically costs more than painting the exterior. For a 2,000-square-foot home in Colton, you can expect to pay around $3,941 to paint the outside and $1,576 to $6,305 to paint the interior. Some painters in Colton may offer alternative rates of $16.00 to $26.68 per hour. Packaging services together can help you save with these hourly rates. For example, you'll likely spend less if you schedule interior and exterior painting together rather than as separate projects.
