Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many professional painters provide both interior and exterior painting, as well as supplementary services.

Interior Painting

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

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Skilled painting crews with the right training and experience can also take on 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 Potomac

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

  • Cost: Get price ranges from at least three companies. Use caution if one installer's rates are much lower than others.
  • Guarantees: Make sure you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand what’s covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Have your painting pro walk you through paint options and related benefits and drawbacks to ensure you select the right kind for your project. Some paints, for example, are more eco-conscious or better at withstanding weather damage.
  • Qualifications: Painters in Maryland must be licensed by the Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC). To obtain an MHIC license, a contractor or business must be properly insured. Always ask for proof of insurance, especially if your painters will be working on a ladder or using power equipment. If your home was built prior to 1978, and you're concerned about the 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: Ask friends, family, and neighbors for references, and look up each business you’re considering on the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also browse review sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Potomac?

Home painting prices fluctuate depending on your home's surface area, the paint you choose, and seasonal demand changes, with the busy summer months being the most expensive. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, 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 the exterior. The average cost of painting a 2,000-square-foot home in Potomac is $4,736 for exterior work and $1,894 to $7,577 for interior work. Alternatively, local Potomac painters may charge anywhere from $21.22 to $35.36 per hour. Hourly rates may save you money if you choose to bundle services. For example, if you get both your home’s interior and exterior painted at once, you’ll pay less overall than you would if you’d scheduled them separately.
