Hire a True Professional

You want to make sure you’re hiring a professional painter  If they have many years of experience, they should be ready to take on any project that you have for them. Make sure you are clear on the scope of your project. Does it include surface preparation and other prep work? Does their contract include material costs like primer and paint and all the way to the drop cloths?

Paintzen’s painters are true professionals and can start painting your space in as little as a week.

What’s the Cost

Perhaps the most important part of the process is knowing what a house painter charges. Paintzen provides a house painting quote rather than an a written estimate (that so many other painters provide), so you will know upfront what you will be paying for your professional paint project.
