    Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

    Interior Painting

    Professional interior painting contractors can assist you in deciding on interior paint types, textures, and finishes, and can educate you on upkeep requirements to figure out what works best where. They'll prep, prime, and paint trim, door frames, cabinets, moldings, and windows. Some professionals provide wallpaper or textured finish stripping for an extra fee.

    Exterior Painting

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

    Additional Services

    Painters with the right training may also provide the following additional services, depending on their 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 Wayne

    When selecting a residential painting company, consider these key factors.
    • Cost: Get price quotes from at least three providers. Be wary of any company that quotes a substantially cheaper rate than others.
    • Guarantees: Make sure you get all guarantees in writing and that you know the scope and duration of coverage.
    • Paint types: Ask your paint pro to go over paint selections in detail, covering the positives and negatives of each. This will help you select 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 confirm 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 worried about the possible 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: Obtain references from family and friends, or check out the Better Business Bureau (BBB) listings of local painting companies. You can also browse customer reviews on websites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Wayne?

    Home painting costs 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. The typical price for both interior and exterior house painting in Wayne is $0.83 to $3.32 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, anticipate paying about $4,144 to paint the exterior, and anywhere from $1,658 to $6,630 to paint the interior. Alternatively, painters in Wayne may charge hourly rates between $17.34 and $28.89. It typically costs less in total to schedule exterior and interior painting at the same time rather than as separate services.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Wayne

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

    It typically takes between four and six hours to paint a 12-foot-by-12-foot room, which includes prep work, priming, painting, and cleaning. To estimate how long it would take to paint your house, multiply this figure by the number of rooms.

    Should you tip house painters?

    You're not expected to tip painters, but a small tip or a positive review is often welcomed. Providing the crew with a simple breakfast or lunch is also worth considering to show your appreciation.

    Can you negotiate with professional painters?

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

    Is it worth getting a professional painter?

    Yes, hiring a professional painter is worth it. A lot of painting jobs can be handled on your own, but you’ll get better results faster if you hire a professional.

    What should a painting quote include?

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