    Services Offered by Professional Painters

    Many painting services provide interior painting, exterior painting, and other services.

    Interior Painting

    Professional interior painters will guide you through various interior paints availible, paint finishes, and maintenance requirements to help you determine which paint is best for your space. They'll prep and paint your door frames, trim, cabinets, moldings, and windows, depending on what your project entails. Some painters will remove existing or outdated wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an additional fee.

    Exterior Painting

    Exterior work starts with painters repairing weather damaged areas, removing old paint, plugging leaks with caulk, and cleaning. They then apply paint to decks, window frames, siding, trim, doors, fences, and other outdoor areas.

    Additional Services

    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 Clarkstown

    As you assess house painting services, consider these key factors.
    • Cost: Request quotes from a few companies before deciding. Be cautious if one company offers substantially lower rates than the rest.
    • Guarantees: Get any guarantees in writing and ensure you understand what they cover and how long they last.
    • Paint types: Ask your painting contractor to explain paint selections in detail, covering the pros and cons of each. This will help you determine the best option for your project. Some paints have better weather resistance or use more environmentally friendly formulas.
    • Qualifications: Make sure the company you hire has the licensing required in Clarkstown and in the state of New York. All painters should be properly bonded and insured, especially if they’re working on a ladder or using power equipment. If your home was built before 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: Request references from family, friends, and neighbors, and check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of painters you’re considering. You can also find reviews on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Clarkstown?

    The price to paint your home will depend on your home’s square footage, the paint you choose, and the season. Painters oftentimes bill more in the busy summer season. The average price for both interior and exterior home painting in Clarkstown is $0.78 to $3.10 per square foot. Most homes have more interior space compared to exterior space, which results in higher indoor painting expenses compared to exterior painting costs. For a 2,000-square-foot home, expect to pay about $3,878 for exterior painting and anywhere from $1,551 to $6,205 for interior painting. Alternatively, painters in Clarkstown may charge between $15.59 and $25.99 per hour. Hourly rates may save you money, especially if you're bundling services. For example, if you get both your home’s interior and exterior painted at once, you’ll pay less overall than you would if you’d scheduled them separately.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Clarkstown

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

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

    Should you tip professional house painters?

    Painting companies don't generally expect tips, but it's polite to offer a small tip or a positive review after services. You can also offer snacks and drinks while the crew is working.

    Can you negotiate with painters?

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

    Is hiring a professional painter worth it?

    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?

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