Interior Painting FAQ

How long does an interior painting job usually take?

Each interior painting job is unique and many different factors come into play to determine the length of time to complete.  Most jobs can be completed in less than a day. If there are many rooms to be painted, extensive prep work such as filling in holes and cracks in the walls and ceilings, many intricate details and colors, etc., the job can last up to 3 days.  We will determine the amount of time the job will take to complete and barring any unseen circumstances, will finish the job on schedule.  We understand that our clients expect for the work to be finished quickly while still adhering to the highest quality standards.

What steps do you take to ensure you don’t spill paint all over my home?

The key to a clean interior paint job is in proper preparation.  We prepare each room for painting by taping off areas that are not meant to be painted, and laying down plastic and canvas drop cloths.  Once the job is complete, we do a thorough inspection to ensure there are no paint drips or spots that got away from us.  In the very rare case that excess paint comes in contact with a surface that was not meant to be painted, we have the proper paint removal and cleaning supplies to fix it.

Can I be in the house while you’re painting?

Some customers prefer to leave the house while we are painting.  Others customers prefer to be home to check the job’s progress and be available in case we have questions.  Either way is fine with us.  However, if you plan on being in the house, just be aware that most paints emit a fairly strong odor that most people don’t like to be around.  Once we are finished for the day, it is usually safe to sleep in a room that has just been painted.  Just make sure to open some windows and let the room air out for a few hours.  Also, we recommend that our customers use low or no V.O.C. paint, which will decrease the amount of odor and toxic fumes emitted from the paint.

Can you help me pick out the paint?

Absolutely!  Our typical arrangement is for the client to purchase the paint.  We have built relationships with local vendors to offer our customers discounts on paint.  We can also advise you on the type of colors and finishes that will make your interior painting project look best.  We offer 3 options for our customers: 1.) You go to the store and purchase the paint and have it available to us when we start the job. 2.) You pick out the colors you want and we will pick the paint up and bring it with us to the job.  We will then invoice you for the cost of the paint once the job is complete. 3.) We will meet you at one of our local retailers: Home Depot, Sherwin Williams, or Benjamin Moore, and work with you to pick out the colors you’d like.

Do I need to move furniture before you arrive?

While it isn’t necessary for you to move any furniture before we arrive, it is very helpful.  The less furniture and obstacles in the room, the quicker we can paint, allowing you to get on with your day.  We understand some of our clients aren’t able to move furniture on their own.  Our team is more than happy to move furniture for you, but depending on the size of the job, there may be a small additional fee to be discussed at the time of the quote.

Do you offer any other services to complement my interior painting job?

We offer an array of services to help make your interior painting job stand out far beyond just changing the color of the walls.  We install all types of molding to include crown molding, chair rail molding, baseboard, and shoe molding.  We can paint horizontal and vertical stripes, two-tone, and faux finishes.  We can replace all your current light and electrical outlet covers.  We can install new door handles on your doors and closets.  We can hang new blinds or curtains.  The possibilities are endless.  Just ask us what you’d like to have done, and we will make it happen.

Helpful Tips for Choosing an Interior Painting Company

1.) Choose a painter you like and trust.  This may sound obvious, but a lot people skip this really crucial step.  You want someone who you can communicate with openly and honestly.  A good painter will ask you a lot of questions to ensure he knows exactly what you want done.  He will walk you through every step of the process and answer all of your questions.  You don’t want to end up going with the lowest bidder and then worry the whole time that he or she is going to steal something when you’re not looking.

2.) Find an interior painting company that has multiple reviews and references.  A company that has been around any longer than a few months should be able to provide references and you should be able to find reviews written about them.  Some of the most popular review sites include Yelp, Google+, and Thumbtack.

3.) Look for a painting company that offers a warranty.  Most companies do not guarantee their work.  Once the work is done, they will disappear, never to be heard from again.  At RJ Painting & Home Improvement, we offer a 3 year guarantee on all of our services.  We contact all of our customers after the job is finished to ensure that they are satisfied with the job, and we happily return to provide any touch-ups on our interior painting.

4.) Make sure they are insured.  Let’s face it, accidents happen.  If you work with an insured interior painting company, those accidents won’t come back to haunt you.  If you choose to go with an uninsured company, any accidents that happen on your property will have to be processed through your personal homeowners insurance.  This can cause your rates to go up, or even for your insurance company to cancel your policy for letting uninsured contractors work on your home.

Interior Painting Cost

The cost of interior painting varies significantly depending on the job.  Our professional team can evaluate your home in order to give you the most competitive prices.  Our pricing begins at $229 per standard room.  This includes walls and ceilings on a room no larger than 12x12x9.  We provide the tools and the labor to get your job done quickly and professionally.
