    Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

    Interior Painting

    Professional interior painters can advise you when deciding on interior paint types, textures, and finishes, and can educate you on upkeep requirements to figure out what works best where. They'll prep, prime, and paint door frames, windows, moldings, cabinets, and trim. Some professionals offer wallpaper or textured finish removal for an added fee.

    Exterior Painting

    Before exterior painting, painters mend weathering damage, strip old coatings, seal leaks with caulk, and clean walls. They follow by painting window frames, fences, siding, trim, doors, decks, and additional outdoor areas.

    Additional Services

    Painting contractors may also provide the following extra services, depending on their training and skills:
    • 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 Tulsa

    When deciding on a house painting company, keep these key factors in mind.
    • Cost: Talk to a few painters to get price estimates. Be wary of unusually cheap prices compared to the average.
    • Guarantees: Ensure that you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand what’s covered and for how long.
    • Paint types: Your painting company can guide you through the different paint selections and their pros and cons to help you choose the best one for your needs. Certain paints, for instance, protect against weather damage more effectively or are more eco-friendly.
    • Qualifications: Confirm your painter is properly licensed to work in Tulsa and in the state of Oklahoma. Make sure your painter is properly bonded and insured, especially if they’re working with power equipment or on ladders. If your home was built before 1978, and you're worried about the possible presence of lead, you might look for a contractor who is certified by the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality.
    • Reputation and reviews: Get references from family and friends, or review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of local painters. You can also find customer reviews on websites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Tulsa?

    The price to paint your home will be determined by your home’s dimensions, the paint you choose, and the season. Painters typically bill more in the busy summer season. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, between $0.69 and $2.74 per square foot. Most homes have more interior surface area than exterior surface area, which means the cost to paint the interior will be more expensive than the cost to paint outside. The average cost of painting a 2,000-square-foot home in Tulsa is $3,426 for outside work and $1,370 to $5,482 for inside work. Some painters in Tulsa may offer alternative rates of $12.63 to $21.05 per hour. Packaging services together can help you save with these hourly rates. Having interior and exterior painting completed simultaneously instead of separately, for instance, may result in a lower bill.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Tulsa

    How long does it take to paint a room/house?

    It typically takes four to six hours to paint a 12-foot-by-12-foot room, which includes prepping, priming, painting, and cleaning. Multiply this estimate by the number of rooms you're painting to determine how long it will take to paint your house.

    Should you tip 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 open to negotiation, especially if you have quotes from multiple companies or a flexible timeline. Be friendly and polite if you plan to negotiate.

    Is hiring a professional painter worth it?

    Yes, it's worth it to get a professional painter. A lot of painting jobs can be handled on your own, but you’ll get better results faster if you hire a professional.

    What should a painting quote include?

    Painting quotes should list all areas to be prepped and painted, the approximate measurements of those surfaces, and the expected cost of labor and materials.
