Services Offered by Professional Painters

Most professional painting companies offer interior and exterior painting, plus other services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting companies have the skills and training 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 choose the best paint for your space. As part of the project, your provider will prep and paint windows, cabinets, moldings, door frames, and trim. Some (for an added fee) will remove wallpaper or textured surfaces prior to painting.

Exterior Painting

Before exterior painting, painting contractors mend weathering damage, strip old coatings, seal leaks with caulk, and clean walls. They follow by painting window frames, siding, fences, doors, trim, decks, and additional outdoor elements.

Additional Services

Experienced painting contractors may also provide the following additional services, depending on their 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 Santa Rosa

Below are some factors to consider when choosing which painting professional to hire:

  • Cost: Ask for estimates from at least three providers. Be cautious of any company that quotes a substantially cheaper rate than competitors.
  • Guarantees: Request guarantees in writing and ensure you understand which items are covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Ask your paint pro to go over various paint choices, including the pros and cons of each, so you can make an informed decision. Some options are designed for specific priorities, such as weather-resistant or eco-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, particularly if they’re working on a ladder or using power equipment. If your home was built before 1978, and you're worried about the possible 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 references from family and friends, or check out the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of local painting companies. You can also find customer ratings on websites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Santa Rosa?

The cost to paint your home will depend on your home’s square footage, the paint you select, and the time of year. Painters typically charge more in the busy summer season. The typical cost of both interior and exterior painting is about $0.87 to $3.47 per square foot. Since most homes have greater interior than exterior space, painting the interior is generally more expensive than painting the exterior. For a 2,000-square-foot home in Santa Rosa, you can expect to pay around $4,338 to paint the outside and $1,735 to $6,941 to paint the interior. Santa Rosa's local painters may offer alternative rates from $18.61 to $31.02 per hour. Getting exterior and interior painting bundled together may mean paying less overall than you would if you split them into separate projects.
