While tipping house painters is neither expected nor required, you may want to do so, especially if they exceeded your expectations in any way or went above and beyond for the job. How much? Some advocate tipping 15 to 2o percent, but on a $5,000 bill, that adds up to a whole lot. I like this advice I found in a Washington Post story better: It recommends a $10 to $20 tip, plus a glowing online review. “Even better than a tip, however, would be to give the painter a positive review on Yelp, HomeAdvisor or similar websites. And consider providing breakfast (coffee and doughnuts) or a pizza lunch for the crew.”

Look no further for an amazing painter in the Moreno Valley area. He gave me such a reasonable estimate on painting a backyard portico, that he ended up painting my entire house. Done expertly, efficiently, and beautifully! He did that so well that I asked him to repair and paint some interior small water damage stains. When his friendly crew finished, you absolutely could not tell there was a problem.
This has given me some great ideas for my kitchen and living room. I’m a little nervous about how to décor my whole room but I think this guide will help me a lot once I start with the work. Thomas May 26, 2017 Galelea Gordon April 04, 2017
Where you live can play a big factor in how lucrative your painting business can be. If you live in an area with high housing prices and with residents that have extra money to invest in home repairs, then you shouldn’t have any trouble finding work at fair rates. Homeowners associations often encourage and may even require homeowners to refresh the paint on the outside of their homes every few years. This means that if you keep your customers happy, they may keep coming back to you whenever they need a touch up. Drumming up new business is half the challenge, so if you can secure repeat customers, you’ll be off to a great start.

I’m not going to get any more into lead paint in this post; rather I will leave it at this: lead paint will add a significant cost to your exterior painting project due to laws about how to safely remove it.
To expand on the above, we’ve painted a bedroom that’s taken a few short hours and cost around $300 and then spent over a week painting a single bedroom with two painters with a total cost of over $5,000.
Is your home's exterior starting to lose its luster? As the first thing people see, your home may need a rejuvenating paint refresh! Find out the 6 signs that will tell you if it’s time to call our CertaPro Painters team.
The average cost to paint a small house sits between $700 and $1000, which is what most homeowners report spending. However, average cost may vary according to different factors, but the most influential factor is the size of your home. A 1,500 square-feet home will cost less to paint than, say, a 5,000 or 6,000 square-feet home. The number of stories your home has may increase the price, but $1,000 is a safe starting point.
If your home was built before 1978, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires your exterior paint to be checked for lead. Lead-based paint is toxic and the leading cause of lead poisoning. If your home tests positive for lead, the EPA recommends hiring a lead-safe contractor.
