Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

Interior Painting

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

Exterior Painting

Exterior work starts with painters mending weather damaged areas, stripping paint, plugging leaks with caulk, and cleaning. They then apply paint to fences, doors, decks, trim, window frames, siding, and other outdoor features.

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 Leyden

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

  • Cost: Contact a few companies to get price estimates. Watch out for exceptionally cheap prices compared to 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 explain various paint choices, including the pros and cons of each, to help you make an informed decision. Some options are designed for specific priorities, such as weather-resistant or eco-friendly formulas.
  • Qualifications: Ensure the company you hire has the licensing required in Leyden and in the state of Illinois. Make sure your painter is 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, consider looking for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Ask for references from friends and neighbors, and look at the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of painters you’re considering. You can also check ratings on sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Leyden?

The cost of professional painting work depends on the size of your home, the paint categories chosen, and the time of year. Most painters raise their rates during the summer in response to increased demand. In Leyden, painting projects for both interiors and exteriors usually run $0.89 to $3.55 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior square footage, which leads to higher paint costs inside versus outside. To paint a 2,000-square-foot house’s exterior costs approximately $4,441, while the interior will cost about $1,777 to $7,106. Some Leyden painting providers may offer alternative rates of $19.29 to $32.14 per hour. Packaging services together can help you save with these hourly rates. For example, you'll likely spend less if you schedule exterior and interior painting together rather than as separate projects.
