    Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

    Interior Painting

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

    Exterior Painting

    Painting pros will begin exterior work by fixing weathering or damage, removing old paint, sealing potential leaks with caulk, and cleaning walls. They will then paint doors, decks, window frames, trim, fences, siding, and other outdoor areas.

    Additional Services

    Skilled painting crews with the right training 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 Coram

    When deciding on a house painting company, keep these key factors in mind.
    • Cost: Get price ranges from at least three companies. Be cautious if one installer's rates are much lower than others.
    • Guarantees: Get all guarantees in writing and ensure you know which items are covered and for how long.
    • Paint types: Ask your painter to explain various paint choices, including the benefits and drawbacks of each, so you can make an informed decision. Some options are designed for specific priorities, such as weather-resistant or eco-friendly formulas.
    • Qualifications: Verify the company you hire has the licensing required in Coram and in the state of New York. Make sure your painter is 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: Get family, friends, and neighbors to provide references, or use the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website to browse providers you’re considering. You can also find customer feedback on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Coram?

    The price to paint your home will depend on your home’s size, the paint you choose, and the month. Painters usually bill more in the busy summer season. In Coram, painting jobs for both interiors and exteriors typically cost $0.82 to $3.26 per square foot. Most homes have greater 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 painters in Coram 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 Coram

    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 times the number of rooms that need to be painted to figure out 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 expected to tip painters, 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 professional painters?

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

    Is hiring a professional painter worth it?

    Yes, it's worth it to get a professional painter. While there are many painting jobs you can handle yourself, you'll get better results faster when you hire a professional.

    What should a painting quote include?

    Painting quotes should list all areas to be prepped and painted, the approximate dimensions of those surfaces, and expected labor and material costs.
