Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

Interior Painting

Interior painting companies have the skills and training to aid you in picking out interior paints, textures, and finishes of paint and can answer questions about the upkeep requirements of your choices. This helps you find the best paint for your space. As part of the project, your provider will prep and paint trim, moldings, windows, door frames, and cabinets. Some (for an added fee) will strip wallpaper or textured surfaces prior to painting.

Exterior Painting

Exterior work starts with pros repairing weather damaged areas, removing old paint, plugging leaks with caulk, and cleaning. They then apply paint to fences, doors, decks, window frames, trim, siding, and other outdoor areas.

Additional Services

Painting companies 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 El Monte

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

  • Cost: Ask for pricing from a few contractors before deciding. Be wary if one company offers substantially lower estimates than others.
  • Guarantees: Ensure that you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand the scope and duration of coverage.
  • Paint types: Ask your paint pro to explain different paint choices, including the benefits and drawbacks of each, to help you make an informed decision. Some options cater to specific priorities, 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 prior to 1978, and you're concerned about the presence of lead, you may want to look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Ask family and friends for references, and look up each contractor you’re considering on the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check ratings on review sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

How Much Does Painting Cost in El Monte?

What you'll pay to paint your house is influenced by its size, the kind of paint, and the timing of the job. Paint companies often charge higher prices during the summer. The typical cost of both interior and exterior painting averages $0.84 to $3.37 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 El Monte, expect to pay around $4,218 to paint the outside and $1,687 to $6,749 to paint the interior. Some El Monte painting providers may offer alternative rates of $17.82 to $29.71 per hour. Bundling services can lead to savings with these hourly rates. Having exterior and interior painting completed at the same time, for instance, may result in a lower bill.
