Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

Interior Painting

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

Exterior Painting

Exterior work starts with pros repairing weather damaged areas, removing old paint, plugging leaks with caulk, and cleaning. They then apply paint to doors, fences, window frames, decks, trim, siding, and other outdoor areas.

Additional Services

Painters may also offer the following services, depending on their skills and qualifications:

  • 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 San Leandro

When searching for a residential painting company, consider these key factors.

  • Cost: Talk to a few companies to get price estimates. Be wary of exceptionally cheap prices compared to the average.
  • Guarantees: Be certain you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand the scope and duration of coverage.
  • Paint types: Have your painter walk you through paint options and related advantages and disadvantages to ensure you select the best type for your project. Some paints, for example, are more eco-conscious or better at withstanding weather damage.
  • 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 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: Ask friends and neighbors for references, and look up each painter you’re considering on the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also browse review sites such as Trustpilot or Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in San Leandro?

The price of professional painting work varies by the dimensions of your home, the paint categories chosen, and the time of year. Most painters increase their rates during the summer due to increased demand. Both interior and exterior painting jobs typically cost between $0.92 and $3.69 per square foot. Most homes have more interior surface area than exterior, 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 San Leandro is $4,607 for outside work and $1,843 to $7,371 for inside work. Alternatively, painters in San Leandro might charge hourly rates between $20.37 and $33.96. Bundling services will usually reduce costs. It typically costs less to schedule interior and exterior painting together rather than as separate services.
