Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many professional painters provide interior and exterior painting, plus additional services.

Interior Painting

Professional painting contractors will advise you on 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 windows, door frames, cabinets, trim, and moldings, 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 Some painters will remove existing or outdated wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an additional fee.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

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

Additional Services

Skilled painting crews with the right training and experience can also handle 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 Apex

When searching for a residential painting contractor, consider these key factors.

  • Cost: Request price estimates from at least three painters. Be wary of any contractor that quotes a substantially cheaper rate than the average.
  • Guarantees: Make sure you get a written contract outlining any guarantees and that you understand the scope and duration of coverage.
  • Paint types: Ask your painter to go over paint selections in detail, covering the benefits and downsides of each. This will help you select the best option for your project. Some paints have better weather resistance or use more environmentally friendly formulas.
  • Qualifications: The state of North Carolina only requires painters to hold a license if they work on jobs valued at more than $30,000. Your residential painter may not need a state license, but check whether there are any local requirements in Apex, and make sure any contractor who works on your property is properly 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 worried about the possible presence of lead, consider looking for a contractor who is certified by the Health Hazards Control Unit under the Division of Public Health.
  • Reputation and reviews: Ask for references from friends and neighbors, and check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) profiles of providers you’re considering. You can also find ratings on sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Apex?

How much you'll pay to paint your house depends on its square footage, the type of paint, and when the job is scheduled. Paint companies typically charge higher prices during the summer. In Apex, painting jobs for both interiors and exteriors usually run $0.82 to $3.29 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior square footage, which leads to higher paint costs indoors versus outdoors. To paint a 2,000-square-foot house’s exterior costs approximately $4,110, while the interior will run about $1,644 to $6,575. Apex's local painters may offer alternative rates of $17.11 to $28.52 per hour. Bundling exterior and interior painting services together can mean lower overall costs than if you'd split them into separate projects.
