Frequently Asked Questions

How much will it cost to paint my home?

The cost of your interior house painting project is simply our prediction of the cost of materials and labor for the project. The good news for you is we will never charge you more than we quoted, even if the project requires more time and materials than we predicted. A good general rule for the cost of interior house painting in Boise is about $1.50 – $2.50 per square foot for painting walls. That number will vary depending on the overall size and height of the project. Then the option to paint the trim and doors would be an additional cost. The best way to estimate a project is just to call us and have us take a look at it. Most estimates only take 15-20 minutes.

How long will it take to paint the interior or exterior of my house?

We can generally paint about 500 – 1,000 square feet of house per day when multiple colors are involved and up to 1,500 square feet of house when we are painting an interior just one color. We are happy to come by and take a look at your project and give you a more accurate estimation for your painting project. There are dozens of different way to add value to your driveway, sidewalk, and garage floor with the use of stains and epoxies.

Do I pay for my painting Boise project all up front, or a deposit and then the balance?

In most cases, the customer pays a small $250 deposit up front for scheduling purposes and then the balance upon completion of the painting project. This way, you know you aren’t paying for the work until you are completely satisfied!

What kinds of paint do you use?

Most of our paint we get from Sherwin Williams, Miller, Rodda, and Benjamin Moore. Just about every type of situation has a unique paint or coating matched to it. Part of our job is knowing the right types of paint for each and every situation. Just our line-up of the different primers we use is a list of 12 or more!

Do you hand brush/roll or spray?

We highly skilled and experienced at doing both. Spraying is a great application technique for painting when the surroundings and environment are conducive to it. Spraying allows for a very even application of the paint and often is efficient and cost effective. However, there are many circumstances when brush and rolling is a more effective way to apply the paint and penetrate the substrate, or when overspray and dust cannot be contained, brush and rolling the paint becomes the ideal method. Whatever the situation, our primary concern is making sure our customers are happy so we are always willing to go with your preference if you have one.

Are more expensive paints better?

Sometimes. Let me explain. What’s important is not spending as much as possible on paint but, instead, spending the right amount in order to get the right product. You can spend a lot of money on the top-rated exterior paint only to find out later a full body stain would have been more appropriate. The difference between more expensive paints is often an additive that is intended to perform a certain way. For example, if you have water stains on your woodwork, then it would be wise to use a stain blocking primer, however, if you were priming drywall, the extra money spent on a stain blocking primer would have been a waste. When it comes to exterior paints we recommend using the best! We use exterior paints that offer a lifetime guarantee!

What happens if the costs go over what you quoted me?

Only in the case of the scope of the project changing, or in other words, we decided to enlarge the project, would the initial estimate change. Otherwise, the price that was quoted for your painting project will not change!

Do you offer free quotes on painting projects?

What do I have to do to prepare the area you will be painting?

That varies with every job. On exterior repaints, we often ask the homeowner to do some tree and bush trimming for us, or we can provide the service for you. With interior painting, the homeowner generally moves the fragile small items and we are happy to move the larger items such as desks, dressers, and beds.
