Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

Interior Painting

Interior painting experts will review the different types of interior paint, types of paint finishes, and maintenance needs to help you determine what’s best for each room. Services could include prepping, priming, and painting moldings, windows, door frames, cabinets, and trim. Optional pre-painting groundwork such as stripping wallpaper or textured coatings may lead to additional charges.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Experienced painting contractors may also provide the following additional services, 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 Orange

When looking to hire a residential painting company, consider these key factors.

  • Cost: Get price quotes from at least three companies. Be wary of any contractor that quotes a substantially lower price than competitors.
  • Guarantees: Ask for guarantees in writing and ensure you understand which items are covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Ask your painting contractor to walk through paint selections in detail, including the positives and negatives of each. This will help you select the best option for your project. Some paints have better weather resistance or use more environmentally 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, especially if they’re working with power equipment or on ladders. If your home was built prior to 1978, and you're worried about the possible presence of lead, consider looking for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Obtain references from family, friends, and neighbors, or verify the Better Business Bureau (BBB) profiles of local painting companies. You can also find customer ratings on websites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Orange?

The cost to paint your home will vary based on your home’s size, the paint you pick, and the time of year. Painters oftentimes bill more in the busy summer season. In Orange, painting projects for both interiors and exteriors usually run $0.85 to $3.38 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 $4,230, while the interior will cost about $1,692 to $6,767. Orange's local painters may offer alternative rates of $17.90 to $29.83 per hour. Bundling exterior and interior painting services together may mean lower overall costs than if you'd split them into separate projects.
