Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many painting services offer interior and exterior painting, as well as other services.

Interior Painting

Professional 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 prep and paint your moldings, trim, windows, door frames, and cabinets, depending 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 Some painters will remove existing or outdated wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an extra charge.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, painters mend weathering damage, strip old paint, seal leaks with caulk, and clean walls. They follow by painting trim, fences, siding, doors, window frames, decks, and additional outdoor areas.

Additional Services

Painting companies with the right qualifications and experience can also take on additional work, such as the following:

  • 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 Redwood City

When choosing a painting service, keep these key factors in mind.

  • Cost: Talk to a few companies to get price estimates. Be wary of unusually cheap prices compared to the average.
  • Guarantees: Ask for guarantees in writing and ensure you understand which items are covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Your painter can guide you through the different paint choices and their pros and cons to help you choose the best one for your needs. Certain paint types, 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 prior to 1978, and you're concerned about the presence of lead, you might look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Get friends and neighbors to provide references, or use the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website to browse companies you’re considering. You can also read customer feedback on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Redwood City?

What you'll pay to paint your house depends on its square footage, the type of paint, and scheduling. Paint companies commonly charge higher prices during the summer. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, between $0.98 and $3.91 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 price to paint a 2,000-square-foot home in Redwood City is $4,890 for outside work and $1,956 to $7,824 for inside work. Some painters in Redwood City may offer alternative rates of $22.23 to $37.05 per hour. Packaging services together can help you save with these hourly rates. Having interior and exterior painting completed simultaneously instead of separately, for instance, may result in a lower bill.
