Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

Interior Painting

Interior painting companies have the specialized knowledge to help you select interior paints, textures, and finishes of paint and can answer questions about the upkeep requirements of your selections. This helps you find the right paint for your space. As part of the project, your provider will prep and paint cabinets, moldings, trim, windows, and door frames. Some (for an extra fee) will remove wallpaper or textured surfaces prior to painting.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painters may also provide the following additional 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 Pittsburg

Below is what you should consider while deciding which residential painting company to hire:

  • Cost: Request price estimates from at least three companies. Be cautious of any company that quotes a substantially lower price than the average.
  • Guarantees: Get all guarantees in writing and ensure you understand which items are covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Have your painter walk you through paint options and related pros and cons to ensure you choose 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 on a ladder or using power equipment. 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 and friends, or check out the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of local painters. You can also find customer ratings on websites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Pittsburg?

The price to paint your home will vary based on your home’s square footage, the paint you choose, and the month. Painters generally quote more in the busy summer season. Both interior and exterior painting jobs typically cost between $0.91 and $3.62 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior surface area than exterior, which means the cost to paint inside will be more expensive than the cost to paint outside. The average price to paint a 2,000-square-foot home in Pittsburg is $4,530 for exterior work and $1,812 to $7,248 for inside work. Pittsburg's local painters may offer alternative rates from $19.87 to $33.11 per hour. Bundling exterior and interior painting services together may mean lower overall costs than if you'd split them into separate projects.
