    Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

    Interior Painting

    Interior painting experts will go over the different types of interior paint, types of paint finishes, and maintenance needs to assist you in determining what’s best for each room. Services can include prepping, priming, and painting door frames, trim, cabinets, moldings, and windows. Optional pre-painting preparation such as stripping wallpaper or textured coatings may lead to additional charges.

    Exterior Painting

    Professional painters start exterior jobs by repairing weather damage, removing old paint, sealing leaks with caulk, and washing walls. They then paint decks, window frames, trim, siding, doors, fences, and other outdoor features.

    Additional Services

    Contractors that have 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 Orangetown

    As you assess residential painting companies, consider these key factors.
    • Cost: Get price quotes from at least three companies. Be cautious of any company that offers a substantially cheaper rate than competitors.
    • Guarantees: Get any guarantees in writing and ensure you confirm how long they last and what they cover.
    • Paint types: Ask your painter to explain paint selections in detail, covering the benefits and downsides of each. This will help you decide on the best option for your project. Some paints have better weather resistance or use more environmentally friendly formulas.
    • Qualifications: Ensure the company you hire has the licensing required in Orangetown and in the state of New York. All painters should be properly bonded and insured, especially 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, consider looking for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
    • Reputation and reviews: Get references from family and friends, and review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of painters you’re considering. You can also find reviews on sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Orangetown?

    Home painting costs differ depending on the square footage, your paint selections, and seasonal demand changes, with the busy summer months being the most expensive. Both interior and exterior painting jobs typically cost between $0.78 and $3.10 per square foot. Most homes have more interior surface area than exterior surface area, which means the cost to paint inside will be greater than the cost to paint the exterior. The average price to paint a 2,000-square-foot home in Orangetown is $3,878 for exterior work and $1,551 to $6,205 for interior work. Some painters in Orangetown may offer alternative rates of $15.59 to $25.99 per hour. Bundling services can help you save with these hourly rates. Having interior and exterior painting completed simultaneously instead of separately, for instance, may result in a lower bill.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Orangetown

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

    It typically takes between four and six hours to paint a 12-foot-by-12-foot room. This estimate includes prepping, priming, painting, and cleaning. Multiply this estimate by the number of rooms to be painted to determine how long it will take to paint your house.

    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 for good service. You can also offer snacks and drinks while the crew is working.

    Can you negotiate with painters?

    You can sometimes negotiate with painting professionals, particularly if your timeline is flexible or if you've gotten multiple quotes for comparison. If you plan to negotiate, remember to be friendly and polite.

    Is hiring a professional painter worth it?

    Yes, hiring a professional painter is worth it. While there are many painting jobs you can handle yourself, a professional will get you better results in less time.

    What should a painting quote include?

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