How To Choose a Painter in Poughkeepsie

When looking to hire a residential painting company, consider these key factors.

  • Cost: Request quotes from at least three companies. Be cautious if one company's prices are significantly lower than the rest.
  • Guarantees: Ensure that you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand what’s covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Ask your painter to explain various paint options, including the pros and cons of each, so you can make an informed decision. Some options are designed for specific needs, such as weather-resistant or eco-friendly formulas.
  • Qualifications: Make sure the company you hire has the licensing required in Poughkeepsie and in the state of New York. Make sure your painter is properly bonded and insured. This is especially important if they’re working on a ladder or using power equipment. If your home was built prior to 1978, and you're concerned about the 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) profiles of companies you’re considering. You can also check reviews on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Poughkeepsie?

The cost to paint your home will depend on your home’s square footage, the paint you select, and the time of year. Painters oftentimes quote more in the busy summer season. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, between $0.84 and $3.37 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior surface area than exterior, which means the cost to paint inside will be greater than the cost to paint the exterior. The average cost of painting a 2,000-square-foot home in Poughkeepsie is $4,207 for outside work and $1,683 to $6,731 for inside work. Alternatively, painters in Poughkeepsie may charge between $17.75 and $29.58 per hour. Hourly rates may save you money if you choose to bundle services. For example, if you get both your home’s exterior and interior painted at once, you’ll pay less overall than you would if you’d scheduled the projects separately.
