Services Offered by Professional Painters

Most professional painting contractors offer both interior and exterior painting, as well as additional services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting pros will go over the different types of interior paint, types of paint finishes, and maintenance needs to help you determine what’s best for each room. Services may include prepping, priming, and painting windows, cabinets, trim, moldings, and door frames. Optional pre-painting preparation such as removing wallpaper or textured coatings may result in additional charges.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painters with the right training 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 Springfield

As you evaluate painting contractors, consider these key factors.

  • Cost: Ask for pricing from several contractors before deciding. Be wary if one company offers substantially lower estimates than the rest.
  • Guarantees: Request guarantees in writing and ensure you know which items are covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Ask your paint pro to go over different paint options, including the positives and negatives of each, so you can make an informed decision. Some options cater to specific needs, such as weather-resistant or eco-friendly formulas.
  • Qualifications: Make sure your painter is properly licensed in Springfield and in the state of Illinois. All painters should be properly bonded and insured. This is especially important if they’re working with power equipment or on ladders. 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: Request references from family and friends, and check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) profiles of providers you’re considering. You can also check reviews on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Springfield?

Home painting rates vary depending on the square footage, your paint selections, and seasonal demand changes, with summer's busy months being the most expensive. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, between $0.73 and $2.90 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior surface area than exterior surface area, which means the cost to paint inside will be more expensive than the cost to paint the exterior. The average price to paint a 2,000-square-foot home in Springfield is $3,629 for outside work and $1,452 to $5,807 for inside work. Alternatively, Springfield's local painters may charge hourly rates between $13.96 and $23.27. If you schedule exterior and interior painting concurrently rather than as separate projects, you’ll likely pay less in total.
