    Services Offered by Professional Painters

    Most professional painters provide both interior and exterior painting, as well as additional services.

    Interior Painting

    Professional painters will guide you through various interior paints availible, paint finishes, and maintenance requirements to help you decide which paint is best for your space. They'll prime and paint your windows, cabinets, door frames, moldings, and trim, depending on what your project requires. Some painters will remove any existing wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an additional fee.

    Exterior Painting

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

    Additional Services

    Painters 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 Danville

    When searching for a house painting service, consider these key factors.
    • Cost: Get estimates from a few contractors before deciding. Be cautious if one contractor offers substantially lower rates than the rest.
    • Guarantees: Get a hard copy of your painter's guarantees and ensure you understand how long they last and what they cover.
    • Paint types: Have your contractor walk you through paint options and related benefits and drawbacks to ensure you choose the best type for your project. Some paints, for example, are more eco-conscious or better at withstanding weather damage.
    • Qualifications: Painters in Virginia must have a license from the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation. Make sure your painter is properly bonded and 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 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: Request references from friends and neighbors, and review the Better Business Bureau (BBB) profiles of painters you’re considering. You can also check reviews on sites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot.

    How Much Does Painting Cost in Danville?

    The price to paint your home will vary based on your home’s square footage, the paint you select, and the month. Painters typically quote more in the busy summer season. The typical cost of both interior and exterior painting averages $0.80 to $3.21 per square foot. Since most homes have greater interior than exterior space, painting the interior typically costs more than painting the exterior. For a 2,000-square-foot home in Danville, expect to pay around $4,015 to paint the outside and $1,606 to $6,424 to paint the interior. Alternatively, painters in Danville may charge anywhere from $16.49 to $27.49 per hour. Hourly prices 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.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Painting in Danville

    How long does painting a room/house take?

    It normally takes between four and six hours to paint a 12-foot-by-12-foot room. This estimate includes prepping, priming, painting, and cleaning. Multiply that by the number of rooms you're painting to figure out how long painting your house will take.

    Should you tip professional house painters?

    You're not expected to tip painters, but leaving a small tip or positive feedback on a reviews website is considered polite. Providing the crew with a simple breakfast or lunch is also worth considering to show your appreciation.

    Can you negotiate with painters?

    Some painters may be willing to negotiate, particularly if you have a flexible timeline or have gotten multiple quotes. Be friendly and polite if you attempt 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 professionals can produce faster and better results.

    What should a painting quote include?

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