Services Offered by Professional Painters

Most professional painting companies provide interior painting, exterior painting, and additional services.

Interior Painting

Professional interior painters will advise you on different types of interior paints availible, paint finishes, and maintenance requirements to help you determine which paint works best for your space. They'll prime and paint your cabinets, door frames, moldings, windows, and trim, based on what your project requires. Some painters will remove existing or outdated wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an extra charge.

Exterior Painting

Before exterior painting, painting contractors fix weathering damage, strip old coatings, seal any leaks with caulk, and wash the walls. They follow by painting window frames, decks, siding, doors, trim, fences, and additional outdoor surfaces.

Additional Services

Painting companies may also offer the following extra services, depending on their qualifications and experience:

  • 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 Murrieta

When choosing a residential painting contractor, keep these key considerations in mind.

  • Cost: Ask for estimates from at least three providers. Be cautious of any company that quotes a substantially cheaper rate than the average.
  • Guarantees: Ensure that you get all guarantees in writing and that you understand the duration and scope of coverage.
  • Paint types: Your painting company can guide you through the different paint choices and their advantages and disadvantages to help you determine the best option for your needs. Certain paints, for instance, resist 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, 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: Ask friends and neighbors 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 Trustpilot or Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Murrieta?

The price to paint your home will be determined by your home’s square footage, the paint you select, and the time of year. Painters generally charge more in the busy summer season. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, between $0.81 and $3.25 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior surface area than exterior surface area, which means the cost to paint inside will be more expensive than the cost to paint the exterior. The average cost of painting a 2,000-square-foot home in Murrieta is $4,067 for outside work and $1,627 to $6,507 for interior work. Alternatively, painters in Murrieta may charge you an hourly rate between $16.83 and $28.05. Bundling services will usually reduce costs. It usually costs less to schedule exterior and interior painting together rather than as separate services.
