HOW MUCH SHOULD HOME PAINTING COST?
This is a very good question! The importance of selecting a professional painting company/contractor cannot be overstated. One of the hard realities of this is the importance of the bidding process. It is important that jobs be priced fairly but responsibly. Contractors who underbid rarely do quality work. Contractors who overbid usually do quality work, but at a premium. Many homeowners have experienced both.
Angie's List, Smart Asset, Home Advisor, and a few other pricing websites have determined that the correct pricing for reputable, licensed and insured painting work in your area, should cost between "$3 and $4 per square foot, if doing ceiling walls and trim" according to Smart Asset, and "between $370 and $790 per bedroom" when painting a home, according to Angies List.
OUR PRICES for our Northern Virginia Painting company Charles Graves Painting, tend to be competitive with other equally established, licensed companies of equally high quality. Prices can change depending on time of year, and the year, as labor costs change over time- give us a call to schedule your free estimate!
Generally speaking, it is industry recommended to compare up to 3 estimates with licensed contractors- Their qualifications can be determined by checking license and insurance with DPOR or seeing the certificate; checking their recommendations and reviews; seeing their standing with BBB; asking for references; and examining the quality of their work, with pictures, videos, or on-site examinations of ongoing projects (we can oblige all of this, upon request!). Remember that contractors in Virginia *are required by law* to show you their license, either by having it on their website (ours is) or a copy in person. This is for your safety and benefit!
We offer free estimates! We just ask that our customers please make sure that our pricing is in-line with your expectations prior to scheduling an estimate, so that the time of everyone is best served.
We can price projects with or without paint, depending on circumstances, selections, and customer request. We also offer DESIGN CONSULTATIONS for every customer. On all jobs, we will pick up and transport all materials for you if they aren't already delivered- and measure for exact amounts- and give professional guidance on paint/material selections.
Because of crew size, design consultations and our process, we do have a minimum project cost of $2000. We appreciate your understanding!
For other pricing: Based on project. The bigger the project, the better the discount. We specialize in larger projects but will often take smaller ones as well. Call us at 703-953-4631 for a free, no obligation estimate!
WE WILL PRICE MATCH ALL LICENSED COMPETITOR'S PRICES FOR EQUAL WORK SCOPE!
*Competitors must be fully licensed and insured, with workers comp, to operate in your area of residence, with equivalent classifications and shown quality. Equal prices for comparable quotes with equal work scope, materials, and warranty. All quotes to match must be current and in writing, and given within the past 14 days. Price matching is at the discretion of Charles Graves Painting, based on these factors, and we will not match equal prices if competitor is doing less work, skipping prep steps, isn't licensed, or doesn't provide warranty.
