    Services Offered by Professional Painters

    Many professional painters provide both interior and exterior painting, as well as supplementary services.

    Interior Painting

    Professional interior painters will guide you through various interior paint, finishes, and maintenance requirements to help you determine which paint works best for your space. They'll prep and paint your windows, door frames, moldings, trim, and cabinets, based on what your project calls for. Some painters will remove any existing wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an extra charge.

    Exterior Painting

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

    Additional Services

    Skilled painting crews 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 Stamford

    When selecting a residential painting company, consider these key factors.
    • Cost: Get price quotes from at least three painters. Be cautious of any contractor that quotes a substantially lower price than the average.
    • Guarantees: Be certain you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand the scope and duration of coverage.
    • Paint types: Ask your painting contractor to go over paint selections in detail, covering the pros and cons of each. This will help you decide on the best option for your project. Some paints have better weather resistance or use more eco-friendly formulas.
    • Qualifications: Any contractor in Connecticut who works on contracts valued higher than $200 each or $1,000 total annually must register with the Department of Consumer Protection. Always verify that your contractor is 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 may want to look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
    • Reputation and reviews: Ask family and friends for references, or use the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website to browse painters you’re considering. You can also browse customer ratings on sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Stamford?

    The cost to paint your home will vary based on your home’s square footage, the paint you select, and the season. Painters usually charge more in the busy summer season. In Stamford, painting projects for both interiors and exteriors usually run $0.82 to $3.28 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior square footage, which leads to higher paint costs indoors versus outdoors. To paint a 2,000-square-foot house’s exterior runs approximately $4,104, while the interior will cost about $1,642 to $6,566. Alternatively, painters in Stamford may charge anywhere from $17.07 to $28.46 per hour. Hourly rates may save you money, especially if you're bundling services. For example, if you get both your home’s interior and exterior painted at once, you’ll pay less overall than you would if you’d scheduled them separately.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Stamford

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

    It typically takes between four and six hours to paint a 12-foot-by-12-foot room, which includes prepping, priming, painting, and cleaning. To figure out how long it would take to paint your house, multiply this figure by the number of rooms.

    Should you tip house painters?

    Painting companies don't generally expect tips, but it's polite to offer a small tip or a positive review for good service. You can also offer snacks and drinks while the crew is working.

    Can you negotiate with professional painters?

    You can sometimes negotiate with professional painters, especially if your timeline is flexible or if you've gotten multiple quotes for comparison. If you decide to negotiate, remember to be friendly and polite.

    Is it worth getting a professional painter?

    Yes, it's worth it to get a professional painter. While DIY painting can be very straightforward, you'll get better results faster when you hire a professional.

    What should a painting quote include?

    A painting quote should list all areas that need to be prepped and painted, the approximate measurements of those surfaces, and expected labor and material costs.
