Services Offered by Professional Painters

Most professional painting companies provide interior and exterior painting, plus other services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting companies have the skills and training to help you select interior paints, textures, and finishes of paint and can answer questions about the maintenance needs of your selections. This helps you choose the right paint for your space. As part of the project, your provider will prime and paint cabinets, door frames, moldings, windows, and trim. Some (for an additional fee) will strip wallpaper or textured surfaces prior to painting.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Experienced painters may also offer the following services, depending on their expertise:

  • 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 Elkhart

Below are some factors to consider when choosing which painting professional to hire:

  • Cost: Contact a few painters to get price estimates. Be wary of unusually 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 different paint choices, including the benefits and drawbacks 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 the company you hire has the licensing required in Elkhart and in the state of Indiana. 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 prior to 1978, and you're worried about the possible presence of lead, you might 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, and look up each business 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 Elkhart?

The price to paint your home will be determined by your home’s square footage, the paint you choose, and the time of year. Painters oftentimes quote more in the busy summer season. The average price for both interior and exterior home painting in Elkhart is $0.93 to $3.72 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior space compared to exterior space, which results in higher indoor painting costs compared to exterior painting costs. For a 2,000-square-foot home, expect to pay about $4,644 for exterior painting and anywhere from $1,858 to $7,431 for interior painting. Some Elkhart painting providers may offer alternative rates of $20.62 to $34.36 per hour. Packaging services together can help you save with these hourly rates. For example, you'll likely spend less if you schedule interior and exterior painting together rather than as separate projects.
