Paint Contractor

What is a Painting Contractor?

Professional painting contractors are professional painters who work for a general contractor or are hired directly by a homeowner. Painting contractors are often a solo painting pro or a small painting company of 15-20 professional painters. Paint contractors mainly focus on painting, but some specialize in other areas like staining, wallpapering, and drywall repair.

How to Find A Professional Paint Contractor Near Me

Painting contractors tend to be local. While paint contractors concentrate on painting, some perform associated tasks such as plaster repairs, minor drywall work, trim and molding, and wallpapering.

Most professional painters are hired through “word of mouth”. Some painting contractors, like us, display signs on the lawns of houses they are working on.

How Do I Know They’re Good?

Reviews, references, and past projects are a great place to start. Facebook and Google reviews are great sites to see this information.

Time and time again, we pick up slack where our competitors, unfortunately, fall off. We understand the difficulties of getting some painting contractors to show up. And we can guarantee that this generalization does not apply to our painters. Each of our professional painters take great pride in their work and love what we do.

“Amazing Job”

5 / 5

“John did an amazing job on the drywall and painting for my new first-floor laundry and bathroom. I’m excited to move onto the flooring and everything else being installed. I’ve waited twenty years for this dream to happen and I couldn’t have done it without Mr. Conrad. Thank you!”
