Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many painting companies provide interior painting, exterior painting, and additional services.

Interior Painting

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

Exterior Painting

Painting pros will begin exterior work by mending weathering or damage, stripping old paint, sealing leaks with caulk, and cleaning walls. They will then paint decks, doors, siding, fences, window frames, trim, and other outdoor features.

Additional Services

Painting contractors may also offer the following services, depending on their skills and qualifications:

  • 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 Huntington Beach

When selecting a house painting service, consider these key factors.

  • Cost: Ask for estimates from at least three contractors. Use caution if one company's prices are significantly lower than the rest.
  • 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 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 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 might look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Ask for references from family and friends, and check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of providers you’re considering. You can also find ratings on sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Huntington Beach?

The price of professional painting work depends on the square footage of your home, the paint types chosen, and the season. Most painters raise their rates during the summer in response to increased demand. The typical cost of both interior and exterior painting averages $0.85 to $3.38 per square foot. Since most homes have more inside than outside space, painting the interior typically costs more than painting the exterior. For a 2,000-square-foot home in Huntington Beach, expect to pay around $4,230 to paint the outside and $1,692 to $6,767 to paint the interior. Some Huntington Beach painting providers may offer alternative rates of $17.90 to $29.83 per hour. Bundling services can help you save with these hourly rates. For example, you'll likely spend less if you schedule exterior and interior painting together rather than as separate projects.
