Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many painting services offer interior, exterior, and additional services.

Interior Painting

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

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painting companies 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 Lincoln

When selecting a house painting company, keep these key factors in mind.

  • Cost: Ask for estimates from at least three painters. Be cautious if one installer's rates are much lower than others.
  • Guarantees: Get any guarantees in writing and ensure you confirm how long they last and what they cover.
  • Paint types: Your painting pro can walk you through the different paint selections and their advantages and disadvantages to help you choose the best one 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, especially 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, consider looking for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Get references from family and friends, and review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) profiles of companies you’re considering. You can also check reviews on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Lincoln?

The price to paint your home will be determined by your home’s dimensions, the paint you choose, and the month. Painters typically quote more in the busy summer season. In Lincoln, painting projects for both interiors and exteriors typically cost $0.87 to $3.49 per square foot. Most homes have more interior square footage, which leads to higher paint costs than when painting the homes exterior. To paint a 2,000-square-foot house’s exterior runs approximately $4,361, while the interior will run about $1,744 to $6,978. Lincoln's local painters may offer alternative rates from $18.76 to $31.27 per hour. Bundling interior and exterior painting services together can mean lower overall costs than if you'd split them into separate projects.
