    Services Offered by Professional Painters

    Many painting services offer interior and exterior painting, as well as additional services.

    Interior Painting

    Interior painting specialists will review the different types of interior paint, types of paint finishes, and maintenance needs to help you determine what’s best for each room. Services may include prepping, priming, and painting cabinets, trim, door frames, moldings, and windows. Optional pre-painting groundwork such as removing wallpaper or textured coatings may lead to additional charges.

    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 window frames, doors, trim, siding, fences, decks, and other outdoor features.

    Additional Services

    Painting companies with the right qualifications and experience can also take on 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 Commack

    Below is what you should consider while deciding which residential painting company to hire:
    • Cost: Contact a few companies to get price estimates. Be wary of unusually cheap prices compared to the average.
    • Guarantees: Make sure you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand the scope and duration of coverage.
    • Paint types: Ask your painting contractor to go over various paint choices, including the pros and cons of each, so you can make an informed decision. Some options cater to specific needs, such as weather-resistant or eco-friendly formulas.
    • Qualifications: Make sure the company you hire has the licensing required in Commack 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 may want to look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
    • Reputation and reviews: Get references from family, friends, and neighbors, or check out the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of local painting companies. You can also read customer reviews on websites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Commack?

    What you'll pay to paint your house depends on its square footage, the type of paint, and the timing. Paint companies commonly charge higher prices between June and August. The typical cost of both interior and exterior house painting in Commack is $0.82 to $3.26 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior space than 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 $4,078 for exterior painting and anywhere from $1,631 to $6,525 for interior painting. Some Commack painting providers may offer alternative rates of $16.91 to $28.17 per hour. Packaging services together can help you save with these hourly rates. Having exterior and interior painting completed at the same time, for instance, may result in a lower bill.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Commack

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

    It takes approximately four to six hours to paint a 12-foot-by-12-foot room, which means you can multiply this times the number of rooms that need to be painted to determine how long the entire 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 after services. You can also offer snacks and drinks while the crew is working.

    Can you negotiate with painters?

    You can sometimes negotiate with professional painters, especially if you have a flexible timeline or have received multiple quotes for comparison. If you choose to negotiate, remember to be polite and friendly.

    Is it worth getting a professional painter?

    Yes, hiring a professional painter is worth it. DIY painting jobs are straightforward, but you’ll get better results faster if you hire a professional.

    What should a painting quote include?

    Painting quotes should include a list of surfaces that need to be prepared and painted, the approximate measurements of those surfaces, the cost of materials, and the cost of labor.
