    Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

    Interior Painting

    Professional interior painting companies can help you decide on interior paint types, textures, and finishes, and can educate you on maintenance requirements to figure out what works best where. They'll prep, prime, and paint trim, moldings, door frames, windows, and cabinets. Some professionals provide wallpaper or textured finish removal for an extra fee.

    Exterior Painting

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

    Additional Services

    Experienced painting contractors may also provide the following additional services, 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 Mooresville

    Below are some factors to consider when choosing which residential painter to hire:
    • Cost: Get price ranges from at least three companies. Use caution if one provider's estimates are significantly lower than others.
    • Guarantees: Be certain you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand what’s covered and for how long.
    • Paint types: Ask your paint pro to go over 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: 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 Mooresville, 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, consider looking for a contractor who is certified by the Health Hazards Control Unit under the Division of Public Health.
    • Reputation and reviews: Obtain references from friends and neighbors, or review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of local painters. You can also find customer ratings on websites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Mooresville?

    Home painting rates vary depending on your home's surface area, the paint you choose, and seasonal demand changes, with the busy summer months being the most expensive. In Mooresville, painting projects for both interiors and exteriors usually run $0.76 to $3.05 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior square footage, which leads to higher paint costs inside versus outside. To paint a 2,000-square-foot house’s exterior runs approximately $3,818, while the interior will run about $1,527 to $6,109. Mooresville's local painters may offer alternative rates from $15.20 to $25.33 per hour. Bundling exterior and interior painting services together can mean paying less overall than you would if you split them into separate projects.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Mooresville

    How long does painting a room/house take?

    It takes about four to six hours to paint a single 12-foot-by-12-foot room, and you can multiply this by the number of rooms that need to be painted to determine how long the job will take. This time estimate includes prep work, priming, painting, and cleanup.

    Should you tip professional house painters?

    Painting companies don't generally expect tips, but many people choose to offer a small tip or a positive review after services. You can also offer snacks and drinks while the crew is working.

    Can you negotiate with professional painters?

    Some professional painters may be willing to negotiate, particularly if you have quotes from multiple companies or a flexible timeline. Be polite and friendly if you plan to negotiate.

    Is it worth getting a professional painter?

    Yes, it's worth it to get a professional painter. DIY painting jobs are straightforward, but you’ll get better results faster if you hire a professional.

    What should a painting quote include?

    A painting quote should include all the surfaces that need to be prepared and painted, the approximate dimensions of those surfaces, labor costs, and material costs.
