    Services Offered by Professional Painters

    Most painting companies offer both interior and exterior painting, as well as additional services.

    Interior Painting

    Professional painting contractors will advise you on various interior paint, finishes, and maintenance requirements to help you determine which paint is best for your space. They'll prime and paint your cabinets, door frames, moldings, windows, and trim, depending on what your project needs. Some painters will remove any existing wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an additional fee.

    Exterior Painting

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

    Additional Services

    Painting companies with the right qualifications and experience can also handle 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 Central Islip

    As you compare residential painting companies, consider these key factors.
    • Cost: Contact a few painters to get price estimates. Be wary of unusually cheap prices compared to the average.
    • Guarantees: Ask for 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 advantages and disadvantages to help you pick the best option for your needs. Certain paints, for instance, withstand weather damage more effectively or are more eco-friendly.
    • Qualifications: Confirm your painter is properly licensed to work in Central Islip and in the state of New York. Make sure your painter is properly bonded and insured, especially if they’re working on a ladder or using power equipment. If your home was built prior to 1978, and you're worried about the possible presence of lead, consider looking for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
    • Reputation and reviews: Obtain references from family, friends, and neighbors, or review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) profiles of local painting companies. You can also read customer ratings on websites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Central Islip?

    The price to paint your home will vary based on your home’s square footage, the paint you choose, and the season. Painters usually charge more in the busy summer season. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, between $0.82 and $3.26 per square foot. Most homes have more interior surface area than exterior, which means the cost to paint inside will be more expensive than the cost to paint the exterior. The average cost of painting a 2,000-square-foot home in Central Islip is $4,078 for exterior work and $1,631 to $6,525 for inside work. Alternatively, Central Islip's local painters might charge hourly rates between $16.91 and $28.17. Bundling services will usually reduce costs. It typically costs less to schedule exterior and interior painting together rather than as separate services.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Central Islip

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

    It takes an average of four to six hours to paint a single 12-foot-by-12-foot room, and you can multiply this by the number of rooms to figure out how long the entire job will take. This time estimate includes prep work, priming, painting, and cleanup.

    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 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 attempt to negotiate.

    Is hiring a professional painter worth it?

    Yes, it's worth it to get a professional painter. A lot of painting jobs can be handled on your own, but professionals can produce faster and better results.

    What should a painting quote include?

    A painting quote should list all areas that need to be prepped and painted, the approximate sizes of those surfaces, and the expected cost of labor and materials.
