Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many professional painters offer interior and exterior painting, plus supplementary 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 best paint for your space. As part of the project, your provider will prime and paint moldings, cabinets, trim, door frames, and windows. Some (for an extra fee) will remove wallpaper or textured surfaces prior to painting.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painters may also provide the following extra 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 Kentwood

Below is what you should consider while choosing which residential painter to hire:

  • Cost: Ask for estimates from at least three providers. Be wary of any contractor that offers a substantially cheaper rate than competitors.
  • Guarantees: Get a written copy of any guarantees and ensure you confirm how long they last and what they cover.
  • Paint types: Have your contractor walk you through paint options and related pros and cons 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: Verify your painter is properly licensed to work in Kentwood and in the state of Michigan. 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 for references from friends and neighbors, and look at the Better Business Bureau (BBB) profiles of providers you’re considering. You can also find ratings on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Kentwood?

How much you'll pay to paint your house is influenced by its size, the kind of paint, and the timing of the job. Paint companies frequently charge higher prices during the summer. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, between $0.87 and $3.46 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior surface area than exterior surface area, which means the cost to paint the interior will be greater than the cost to paint outside. The average cost of painting a 2,000-square-foot home in Kentwood is $4,330 for outside work and $1,732 to $6,928 for interior work. Alternatively, Kentwood's local painters may charge hourly rates between $18.55 and $30.92. It usually costs less in total to schedule interior and exterior painting together rather than as separate services.
