Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many professional painters provide interior painting, exterior painting, and additional services.

Interior Painting

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

Exterior Painting

Painters start exterior jobs by fixing weather damage, removing old paint, sealing leaks with caulk, and cleaning walls. They then paint fences, window frames, decks, doors, siding, trim, and other outdoor features.

Additional Services

Experienced painters may provide the following services as well, depending on their expertise:

  • 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 Long Beach

Below are some factors to consider when deciding which residential painter to hire:

  • Cost: Request price estimates from at least three companies. Be wary of any contractor that offers a substantially cheaper rate than competitors.
  • Guarantees: Get a hard copy of your painter's guarantees and ensure you understand what they cover and how long they last.
  • Paint types: Have your contractor walk you through paint options and related pros and cons to ensure you select the right kind for your project. Some paints, for example, withstand weather damage better than others or are more eco-friendly.
  • 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 with power equipment or on ladders. If your home was built before 1978, and you're worried about the possible 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: Obtain references from friends and neighbors, or review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) listings of local painting companies. You can also browse customer reviews on websites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Long Beach?

Home painting rates vary depending on your home's surface area, the paint you choose, and seasonal demand changes, with the busy summer months being the most expensive. In Long Beach, painting projects for both interiors and exteriors typically cost $0.84 to $3.37 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior square footage, which leads to higher paint costs indoors versus outdoors. To paint a 2,000-square-foot house’s exterior runs approximately $4,218, while the interior will run about $1,687 to $6,749. Alternatively, local Long Beach painters may charge anywhere from $17.82 to $29.71 per hour. Hourly prices may save you money if you choose to bundle services. For example, you'll pay less to have your home's interior and exterior painted together than you would if you’d scheduled the projects separately.
