Services Offered by Professional Painters

Most professional painting services offer interior and exterior painting, plus other services.

Interior Painting

Professional interior painting companies can advise you when deciding on interior paint types, textures, and finishes, and can educate you on maintenance requirements to determine what works best where. They can prep, prime, and paint door frames, trim, cabinets, moldings, and windows. Some professionals offer wallpaper or textured finish stripping for an added fee.

Exterior Painting

Painting pros 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, window frames, fences, siding, decks, and other outdoor elements.

Additional Services

Painting contractors may provide the following services as well, depending on their training 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 Woodlawn

Below is what you should consider while choosing which painting professional to hire:

  • Cost: Ask for pricing from a few companies before deciding. Be cautious if one company offers substantially lower estimates than others.
  • Guarantees: Request guarantees in writing and ensure you understand which items are covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Your painter can walk you through the different paint selections and their benefits and downsides to help you determine the best one for your needs. Certain paint types, for instance, withstand weather damage more effectively or are better for the environment.
  • 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 before 1978, and you're concerned about the presence of lead, you might look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Get family, friends, and neighbors to provide references, or use the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website to browse companies you’re considering. You can also browse customer ratings on sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Woodlawn?

What you'll pay to paint your house depends on its size, the kind of paint, and scheduling. Paint companies frequently charge higher prices between June and August. The typical cost of both interior and exterior painting averages $0.82 to $3.26 per square foot. Since most homes have more inside than outside space, painting the interior tends to cost more than painting the exterior. For a 2,000-square-foot home in Woodlawn, you can expect to pay around $4,078 to paint the outside and $1,631 to $6,525 to paint the interior. Alternatively, local Woodlawn painters may charge anywhere from $16.91 to $28.17 per hour. Hourly prices may save you money, especially if you're bundling services. For example, you'll pay less to have your home's exterior and interior painted together than you would if you’d scheduled them separately.
