    Services Offered by Professional Painters

    Many painting companies offer interior painting, exterior painting, and additional services.

    Interior Painting

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

    Exterior Painting

    Before exterior painting, painters repair weathering damage, strip old coatings, seal leaks with caulk, and clean walls. They follow by painting decks, doors, window frames, trim, fences, siding, and additional outdoor surfaces.

    Additional Services

    Painting companies with the right qualifications and experience can also complete 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 Brookhaven

    When choosing a house painting company, keep these key considerations in mind.
    • Cost: Request price estimates from at least three providers. Be wary of any company that quotes a substantially lower price than others.
    • Guarantees: Make sure you get all guarantees in writing and that you understand the duration and scope of coverage.
    • Paint types: Have your painting pro 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-friendly or better at withstanding weather damage.
    • Qualifications: Make sure the company you hire has the licensing required in Brookhaven and in the state of New York. 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: Request references from friends and neighbors, and review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of providers you’re considering. You can also find reviews on sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Brookhaven?

    The price to paint your home will depend on your home’s square footage, the paint you choose, and the time of year. Painters oftentimes charge more in the busy summer season. In Brookhaven, painting projects for both interiors and exteriors typically cost $0.82 to $3.26 per square foot. Most homes have more interior square footage, which leads to higher paint costs than when painting the exterior. To paint a 2,000-square-foot house’s exterior runs approximately $4,078, while the interior will run about $1,631 to $6,525. Some Brookhaven painting providers may offer alternative rates of $16.91 to $28.17 per hour. Bundling services can help you save with these hourly rates. Having interior and exterior painting completed at the same time, for instance, may result in a lower bill.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Brookhaven

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

    It takes roughly four to six hours to paint a 12-foot-by-12-foot room. You can multiply this times the number of rooms to estimate how long the entire job will take. The total time includes prep work, priming, painting, and cleanup.

    Should you tip professional house painters?

    Professional house painters don't expect tips, but leaving a small tip or positive feedback on a reviews website is considered polite. You can offer your painters a small breakfast or lunch to show your appreciation.

    Can you negotiate with painters?

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

    Is it worth getting a professional painter?

    Yes, it's worth it to get a professional painter. While DIY painting can be very straightforward, a professional will get you better results in less time.

    What should a painting quote include?

    A painting quote should include all the surfaces that need to be prepared and painted, the approximate measurements of those surfaces, the cost of materials, and the cost of labor.
