Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many painting companies offer interior, exterior, and additional services.

Interior Painting

Interior painting companies have the specialized knowledge to help you choose interior paints, textures, and finishes of paint and can answer questions about the upkeep requirements of your choices. This helps you find the best paint for your space. As part of the project, your provider will prep and paint trim, moldings, door frames, windows, and cabinets. Some (for an added fee) will strip wallpaper or textured surfaces prior to painting.

Exterior Painting

Exterior work starts with pros mending weather damaged areas, removing old paint, plugging leaks with caulk, and cleaning. They then apply paint to siding, window frames, decks, fences, doors, trim, and other outdoor areas.

Additional Services

Painting companies may also offer 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 Albany

As you assess house painting services, consider these key factors.

  • Cost: Request price estimates from at least three companies. Be cautious of any contractor that offers a substantially cheaper rate than others.
  • Guarantees: Get all guarantees in writing and ensure you understand which items are covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Have your painting pro walk you through paint options and related benefits and drawbacks to ensure you select the right kind for your project. Some paints, for example, are more eco-conscious or better at withstanding weather damage.
  • Qualifications: Painters in Oregon must be licensed by the Oregon Construction Contractors Board. To obtain a license, a contractor must pass a knowledge exam and provide proof of insurance. We recommend always asking for proof of insurance yourself, particularly if contractors will be working with power equipment or on ladders. 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 trained and certified to work with lead-based paint under Oregon’s Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule.
  • Reputation and reviews: Ask friends, family, and neighbors for references, and look up each provider you’re considering on the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also browse review sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Albany?

Home painting prices vary depending on project size, your paint selections, and seasonal demand changes, with summer's busy months being the most expensive. Both interior and exterior painting jobs typically cost between $0.78 and $3.11 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 outside. The average price to paint a 2,000-square-foot home in Albany is $3,887 for exterior work and $1,555 to $6,218 for interior work. Alternatively, painters in Albany may charge anywhere from $15.65 to $26.08 per hour. Hourly rates may save you money if you choose to bundle services. For example, you'll pay less to have your home's exterior and interior painted together than you would if you’d scheduled them separately.
