    Services Offered by Professional Painters

    Most professional painting companies provide both interior and exterior painting, as well as other services.

    Interior Painting

    Professional interior painters can assist you in deciding on interior paint types, textures, and finishes, and can educate you on care 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 removal for an extra fee.

    Exterior Painting

    Painting pros will begin exterior work by fixing weathering or damage, stripping old paint, sealing potential leaks with caulk, and cleaning walls. They will then paint decks, doors, trim, siding, window frames, fences, and other outdoor elements.

    Additional Services

    Experienced painters may also offer the following services, 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 Fair Lawn

    Below are some factors to consider when choosing which painting professional to hire:
    • Cost: Get estimates from a few companies before deciding. Be wary if one company offers substantially lower rates than others.
    • Guarantees: Ask for guarantees in writing and ensure you know which items are covered and for how long.
    • Paint types: Ask your painter to walk through paint selections in detail, including the benefits and downsides of each. This will help you decide on the best option for your project. Some paints have better weather resistance or use more environmentally friendly formulas.
    • Qualifications: Painters in New Jersey must be licensed as a home improvement contractor by the Division of Consumer Affairs. To obtain this license, a contractor or business must be insured. Take the time to double check that your painter is properly bonded and insured, especially if they’re working with power equipment or on ladders. If your home was built before 1978, and you're concerned about the presence of lead, consider looking 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 painter you’re considering on the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also browse review sites such as Trustpilot or Google Reviews.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Fair Lawn?

    Home painting prices differ depending on your home's surface area, the paint you choose, and seasonal demand changes, with summer's busy months being the most expensive. Both interior and exterior painting jobs typically cost between $0.83 and $3.31 per square foot. Most homes have more 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 price to paint a 2,000-square-foot home in Fair Lawn is $4,138 for exterior work and $1,655 to $6,621 for inside work. Some Fair Lawn painting providers may offer alternative rates of $17.30 to $28.83 per hour. Packaging services together can lead to savings with these hourly rates. For example, your bill will likely be lower if you schedule interior and exterior painting together rather than as separate projects.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Fair Lawn

    How long does it take to paint a room/house?

    It takes approximately four to six hours to paint one 12-foot-by-12-foot room. You can multiply this by the number of rooms you're painting to estimate how long the job will take. This time estimate includes prep work, priming, painting, and cleanup.

    Should you tip professional house painters?

    You're not normally expected to tip painters, but it's polite to offer a small tip or a positive review for good service. You can also offer snacks and drinks while the crew is working.

    Can you negotiate with professional painters?

    Some painters may be willing to negotiate, particularly if you have quotes from multiple companies or a flexible timeline. Be friendly and polite if you choose to negotiate.

    Is hiring a professional painter worth it?

    Yes, it's worth it to get a professional painter. DIY painting jobs are straightforward, but professionals can produce faster and better results.

    What should a painting quote include?

    Painting quotes should list all areas that need to be prepped and painted, the approximate measurements of those surfaces, and expected labor and material costs.
