    Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

    Interior Painting

    Interior painting companies have the skills and training to aid you in picking out interior paints, textures, and finishes and can answer questions about the maintenance needs of your selections. This helps you find the right paint for your space. As part of the project, your provider will prep and paint moldings, windows, door frames, trim, and cabinets. Some (for an added fee) will strip wallpaper or textured surfaces prior to painting.

    Exterior Painting

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

    When looking to hire a house painting service, consider these key factors.
    • Cost: Get estimates from a few contractors before deciding. Be wary if one company offers substantially lower estimates than others.
    • Guarantees: Make sure you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand what’s covered and for how long.
    • Paint types: Ask your paint pro to explain various paint choices, including the benefits and drawbacks 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, especially 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 may want to look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
    • Reputation and reviews: Obtain references from friends and neighbors, or review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) listings of local painters. You can also read customer reviews on websites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Turlock?

    The price to paint your home will vary based on your home’s square footage, the paint you choose, and the month. Painters usually charge more in the busy summer season. The typical cost of both interior and exterior painting is about $0.86 to $3.44 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 Turlock, you can expect to pay around $4,304 to paint the exterior and $1,722 to $6,886 to paint the interior. Alternatively, painters in Turlock may charge hourly rates between $18.39 and $30.64. If you schedule exterior and interior painting together rather than as separate projects, you’ll likely pay less overall.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Turlock

    How long does it take to paint a room/house?

    It normally takes between four and six hours to paint a 12-foot-by-12-foot room, which includes prepping, priming, painting, and cleaning. Multiply that by the number of rooms you want to paint to figure out how long it will take to paint your house.

    Should you tip house painters?

    You're not expected to tip painters, but leaving a small tip or positive feedback on a reviews website is considered polite. Providing the crew with a simple breakfast or lunch is also worth considering to show your appreciation.

    Can you negotiate with professional painters?

    You can sometimes negotiate with professional painters, especially if you have a flexible timeline or have received multiple quotes to compare. If you plan to negotiate, remember to be polite and friendly.

    Is hiring a professional painter worth it?

    Yes, hiring a professional painter is worth it. While DIY painting can be very straightforward, a professional will get you better results in less time.

    What should a painting quote include?

    A painting quote should include a list of surfaces that need to be prepared and painted, the approximate dimensions of those surfaces, labor costs, and material costs.
