    Services Offered by Professional Painters

    Many painting services provide interior and exterior painting, as well as other services.

    Interior Painting

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

    Exterior Painting

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

    Additional Services

    Painting companies with the right qualifications and experience can also take on additional work, such as the following:
    • 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 Rock Hill

    As you compare house painting services, consider these key factors.
    • Cost: Talk to a few companies to get price estimates. Watch out for unusually cheap prices compared to the average.
    • Guarantees: Be certain you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand the scope and duration of coverage.
    • Paint types: Ask your painter to explain various paint options, including the benefits and drawbacks of each, to help you make an informed decision. Some options cater to specific needs, such as weather-resistant or eco-friendly formulas.
    • Qualifications: Painters in South Carolina must be registered as specialty contractors by the Residential Builders Commission. Painters must be bonded for projects valued at more than $5,000, but you should always hire a painter who's fully bonded and insured, especially if they'll be working with power equipment or on ladders. If your home was built prior to 1978, and you're concerned about the presence of lead, you might look for a contractor who is licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
    • Reputation and reviews: Ask friends and neighbors for references, and look up each contractor you’re considering on the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You can also check ratings on review sites such as Trustpilot or Google Reviews.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Rock Hill?

    The cost to paint your home will depend on your home’s dimensions, the paint you choose, and the time of year. Painters typically quote more in the busy summer season. In Rock Hill, painting jobs for both interiors and exteriors usually run $0.90 to $3.60 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior square footage, which leads to higher paint costs indoors versus outdoors. To paint a 2,000-square-foot house’s exterior costs approximately $4,498, while the interior will cost about $1,799 to $7,198. Alternatively, Rock Hill's local painters may charge you an hourly rate between $19.66 and $32.77. Bundling services will usually reduce costs. If you schedule interior and exterior painting concurrently rather than as separate projects, you’ll likely pay less in total.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Rock Hill

    How long does painting a room/house take?

    It takes an average of four to six hours to paint a single 12-foot-by-12-foot room, which means you can multiply this times the number of rooms to figure out 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 painters?

    Some painters may be open to negotiation, particularly if you have a flexible timeline or have gotten multiple quotes. Be polite and friendly if you choose 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 include a lit of all areas that need to be prepped and painted, the approximate dimensions of those surfaces, and the expected cost of labor and materials.
