Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many professional painters offer interior and exterior painting, plus supplementary services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting experts will talk you through the different types of interior paint, types of paint finishes, and maintenance needs to help you determine what’s best for each room. Services may include prepping, priming, and painting windows, moldings, cabinets, trim, and door frames. Optional pre-painting groundwork such as removing wallpaper or textured coatings may result in additional charges.

Exterior Painting

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

Additional Services

Painters may provide the following services as well, depending on their expertise:

  • 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 Gastonia

As you compare painting contractors, 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 others.
  • Guarantees: Ensure that you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand the scope and duration of coverage.
  • Paint types: Ask your painting contractor to go over paint selections in detail, covering the positives and negatives of each. This will help you determine 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 Gastonia, 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 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 family, friends, and neighbors, and check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) profiles of providers you’re considering. You can also check reviews on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Gastonia?

How much you'll pay to paint your house is influenced by its size, the type of paint, and when the job is scheduled. Paint companies frequently charge higher prices during the summer. The typical cost of both interior and exterior painting ranges from $0.86 to $3.42 per square foot. Since most homes have greater interior than exterior space, painting the interior typically costs more than painting the exterior. For a 2,000-square-foot home in Gastonia, expect to pay around $4,281 to paint the exterior and $1,712 to $6,850 to paint the interior. Alternatively, Gastonia's local painters might charge hourly rates between $18.24 and $30.39. If you schedule interior and exterior painting together rather than as separate projects, you’ll likely pay less in total.
