Your Budget Counts

When working with a Craftsman Painter Rep or Color Designer, they'll take into account your budget for the project.

We can help you plan and prioritize a scope of work that fits neatly with your budget needs.

While we take seriously the compensation of our painters, we still believe that painting should be accessible to all.

Make sure to ask about promotional seasonal discounts to help you paint the home of your dreams.

For home buyers and sellers, talk to your Realtor about our special VIP benefits we give realtor clients.

Craftsman Painter makes it easy to afford high quality painting.

What influences the cost of painting your house?


Have your walls seen better days?

As proud members of the Painting Contractors Association, we follow PCA Industry Standards to determine the level of prep required to achieve a properly painted surface.

What level of prep do you desire?

Choosing Prep Level

Level of prep impacts pricing because more prep takes more time and care. We recommend choosing level 3 or above for best results. But choosing level 1 or 2 may save money on your project.

  • Level 1 Surface Preparation

    Basic: Clean the walls, then paint. This is ideal for "like new" surfaces.

  • Level 2 Surface Preparation

    Standard: Limited patching, then paint. Ideal for "very good" surfaces.

  • Level 3 Surface Preparation

    Superior [Recommended]: Thorough patching, then paint. Ideal for "good" surfaces.

  • Level 4 Surface Preparation

    Supreme: Extensive patching, then paint. Ideal for "poor" surfaces.

  • Level 5 Surface Preparation

    Restoration: Replace drywall or woodwork, then paint. Ideal for damaged surfaces.
