    Services Offered by Professional Painters

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

    Interior Painting

    Professional painting contractors will guide you through different types of interior paints availible, paint finishes, and maintenance requirements to help you determine which paint works best for your space. They'll prime and paint your door frames, trim, windows, moldings, and cabinets, depending on what your project calls for. Some painters will remove existing or outdated wallpaper or textured finishings before painting for an additional fee.

    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 siding, window frames, decks, doors, fences, trim, and other outdoor elements.

    Additional Services

    Painting companies may also provide the following additional services, depending on their qualifications and experience:
    • 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 Kennewick

    When searching for a residential painting contractor, consider these key factors.
    • Cost: Talk to a few companies to get price estimates. Watch out for exceptionally cheap prices compared to the average.
    • Guarantees: Get a written copy of any guarantees and ensure you understand what they cover and how long they last.
    • Paint types: Ask your paint pro to go over various paint choices, including the pros and cons of each, so you can make an informed decision. Some options are designed for specific priorities, such as weather-resistant or eco-friendly formulas.
    • Qualifications: Painters in Washington must be licensed as specialty contractors by the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. In most cases, painters cannot employ subcontractors. The state requires contractors to be bonded and insured, and it's important to verify this information with the painter you hire, particularly if they’ll be working with power equipment or on ladders. If your home was built before 1978, and you're concerned about the presence of lead, you might look for a firm and a contractor that are certified by the Department of Commerce to work with lead-based paint.
    • Reputation and reviews: Ask friends and neighbors for references, and look up each painter 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 Kennewick?

    Home painting prices vary depending on project size, the paint you choose, and seasonal demand changes, with summer's busy months being the most expensive. The typical cost of both interior and exterior home painting in Kennewick is $0.69 to $2.74 per square foot. Most homes have greater interior space compared to exterior space, which leads to higher indoor painting costs compared to exterior painting costs. For a 2,000-square-foot home, expect to pay about $3,429 to paint the exterior, and anywhere from $1,372 to $5,486 to paint the interior. Some painters in Kennewick may offer alternative rates of $12.65 to $21.08 per hour. Packaging services together can help you save with these hourly rates. For example, your bill will likely be lower if you schedule interior and exterior painting together rather than as separate projects.

    Is it worth getting a professional painter?

    Yes, it's worth it to get a professional painter. While there are many painting jobs you can handle yourself, you'll get better results faster when you hire a professional.

    What should a painting quote include?
