Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many painting services provide both interior and exterior painting, plus other services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting companies have the expertise to help you select interior paints, textures, and finishes of paint and can explain the upkeep requirements of your selections. This helps you find the best paint for your space. As part of the project, your provider will prep and paint door frames, moldings, trim, windows, and cabinets. Some (for an added fee) will strip wallpaper or textured surfaces prior to painting.

Exterior Painting

Painters start exterior jobs by fixing weather damage, stripping old paint, sealing leaks with caulk, and cleaning walls. They then paint decks, trim, window frames, doors, siding, fences, and other outdoor features.

Additional Services

Painting companies with the right qualifications and experience can also handle 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 Elgin

When choosing a house painting company, keep these key considerations in mind.

  • Cost: Get estimates from several contractors before deciding. Be wary if one company offers substantially lower rates than others.
  • Guarantees: Be certain you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand the scope and duration of coverage.
  • Paint types: Ask your painter to go over various paint options, including the positives and negatives of each, so you can make an informed decision. Some options are designed for specific needs, such as weather-resistant or eco-friendly formulas.
  • Qualifications: Make sure your painter is properly licensed to work in Elgin and in the state of Illinois. Make sure your painter is properly bonded and insured. This is especially important if they’re working on a ladder or using power equipment. 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: Get friends and neighbors to provide references, or use the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website to review providers you’re considering. You can also find customer ratings on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Elgin?

The cost of professional painting work is influenced by the dimensions of your home, the paint types chosen, and the time of year. Most painters raise their rates during the summer due to increased demand. Both interior and exterior painting jobs typically cost between $0.92 and $3.70 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 outside. The average price to paint a 2,000-square-foot home in Elgin is $4,624 for outside work and $1,850 to $7,399 for inside work. Alternatively, painters in Elgin might charge you an hourly rate between $20.49 and $34.14. Bundling services will usually reduce costs. It normally costs less to schedule interior and exterior painting at the same time rather than as separate services.
