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 to required to achieve a properly painted surface.
See Industry Standards

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Your Budget Counts

When working with a Craftsman Painter Rep or Color Designer, they'll take into account your budget for the project. It's best to have all decision makers present for the estimate and proposal discussions, so that 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.
