Services Offered by Professional Painters

Most professional painting contractors provide both interior and exterior painting, as well as additional services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting companies have the skills and training to aid you in picking out interior paints, textures, and finishes of paint and can answer questions about the upkeep requirements of your selections. This helps you find the right paint for your space. As part of the project, your provider will prep and paint trim, cabinets, moldings, door frames, and windows. Some (for an extra fee) will remove wallpaper or textured surfaces prior to painting.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painting contractors may provide the following services as well, depending on their skills and qualifications:

  • 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 Fuquay-Varina

Below are some factors to consider when selecting which residential painting company to hire:

  • Cost: Talk to a few painters to get price estimates. Watch out for exceptionally cheap prices compared to the average.
  • Guarantees: Get any guarantees in writing and ensure you confirm how long they last and what they cover.
  • Paint types: Your painting pro can advise you on the different paint options and their advantages and disadvantages to help you determine the best one for your needs. Certain paint types, for instance, protect against weather damage more effectively or are better for the environment.
  • 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 Fuquay-Varina, 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 before 1978, and you're concerned about the presence of lead, you might look for a contractor who is certified by the Health Hazards Control Unit under the Division of Public Health.
  • Reputation and reviews: Get references from friends and neighbors, or review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) listings of local painters. You can also read customer ratings on websites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Fuquay-Varina?

The cost of professional painting work varies by the square footage of your home, the paint types chosen, and the time of year. Most painters increase their rates during the summer in response to increased demand. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, between $0.82 and $3.29 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior surface area than exterior, which means the cost to paint the interior will be greater than the cost to paint the exterior. The average price to paint a 2,000-square-foot home in Fuquay-Varina is $4,110 for outside work and $1,644 to $6,575 for interior work. Alternatively, painters in Fuquay-Varina may charge anywhere from $17.11 to $28.52 per hour. Hourly prices may save you money, especially if you're bundling services. For example, if you get both your home’s interior and exterior painted at once, you’ll pay less overall than you would if you’d scheduled them separately.
