Services Offered by Professional Painters

Many painting services offer both interior and exterior painting, plus additional services.

Interior Painting

Professional painters will advise you on various interior paints availible, paint finishes, and maintenance requirements to help you determine which paint works best for your space. They'll prepare and paint your moldings, door frames, windows, trim, and cabinets, based on what your project requires. Some painters will remove any existing wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an extra charge.

Exterior Painting

Professional painters will begin exterior work by mending weathering or damage, stripping old paint, sealing leaks with caulk, and cleaning walls. They will then paint doors, siding, trim, fences, window frames, decks, and other outdoor features.

Additional Services

Painting contractors may also offer the following 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 Franklin

Below are some factors to consider when deciding which residential painter to hire:

  • Cost: Ask for pricing from several contractors before deciding. Be cautious if one company offers substantially lower rates than others.
  • Guarantees: Be certain you get all guarantees in writing, and that you understand what’s covered and for how long.
  • Paint types: Your painter can guide you through the different paint selections and their benefits and downsides to help you pick the best option for your needs. Certain paints, for instance, resist weather damage more effectively or are better for the environment.
  • Qualifications: For most residential painting jobs, you'll want to hire a painter that has a Home Improvement License from the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance. A painter with this license can work on jobs valued between $3,000 and $25,000. Individuals or companies must be bonded and insured to apply, but it's important that you verify this information with any contractor working on your home. This is especially important if they'll be working on a ladder or using power equipment. 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 licensed by the EPA to work with lead-based paint.
  • Reputation and reviews: Get references from family and friends, and look at the Better Business Bureau (BBB) pages of companies you’re considering. You can also check reviews on sites such as Trustpilot and Google Reviews.

How Much Does Painting Cost in Franklin?

The cost of professional painting work varies by the size of your home, the paint brands chosen, and the season. Most painters raise their rates during the summer due to increased demand. Interior and exterior painting jobs both run, on average, between $0.95 and $3.79 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior surface area than exterior, which means the cost to paint inside will be greater than the cost to paint outside. The average price to paint a 2,000-square-foot home in Franklin is $4,736 for outside work and $1,894 to $7,577 for interior work. Alternatively, local Franklin painters may charge between $21.22 and $35.36 per hour. Hourly rates may save you money, especially if you're bundling services. For example, if you get both your home’s interior and exterior painted at once, you’ll pay less overall than you would if you’d scheduled them separately.
