Services Offered by Professional Painters

Most painting companies provide both interior and exterior painting, as well as additional services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting specialists will review the different types of interior paint, types of paint finishes, and maintenance needs to assist you in deciding what’s best for each room. Services could include prepping, priming, and painting moldings, windows, door frames, trim, and cabinets. Optional pre-painting groundwork such as removing wallpaper or textured coatings may lead to additional charges.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painting contractors may also provide the following additional services, depending on their qualifications and 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 Homer

When choosing a painting service, keep these key factors in mind.

  • Cost: Get estimates from several companies before deciding. Be wary if one contractor gives substantially lower estimates than the rest.
  • Guarantees: Make sure you get a written contract outlining any guarantees and that you understand the scope and duration of coverage.
  • Paint types: Ask your painter to go over various paint choices, including the benefits and drawbacks of each, so you can make an informed decision. Some options cater to specific priorities, such as weather-resistant or eco-friendly formulas.
  • Qualifications: Verify your painter is properly licensed in Homer and in the state of Illinois. All painters should be properly bonded and insured. This is especially important if they’re working on a ladder or using power equipment. If your home was built prior to 1978, and you're worried about the possible presence of lead, consider looking 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 check ratings on review sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Homer?

The price of professional painting work varies by the dimensions of your home, the paint brands chosen, and the season. Most painters raise their rates during the summer due to increased demand. Both interior and exterior painting jobs typically cost between $0.95 and $3.79 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior surface area than exterior surface area, which means the cost to paint inside will be greater than the cost to paint outside. The average cost of painting a 2,000-square-foot home in Homer is $4,733 for outside work and $1,893 to $7,573 for inside work. Some painters in Homer may offer alternative rates of $21.20 to $35.33 per hour. Getting exterior and interior painting bundled together may mean lower overall costs than if you'd split them into separate projects.
