How to Book Your Painting Estimate
When you want to obtain an estimate from Elite Trade Painting, we’ve made the process simple. All that you need to do is visit our website and click the “Get a Free Quote” button at the top right of the page. Then, you fill out the form and provide as much information as you can, and we’ll get in touch with you to set up a time to come give you a more accurate quote of your painting job. If you prefer to talk to someone, you can also call us at (877) 663-5483 to discuss your needs and get an estimate scheduled.
Keep in mind that although some people might want a verbal or written estimate before we see the property, while we can provide rough ideas on pricing, we will eventually need to do a site visit to provide a truly accurate quote. There are so many variables involved that any professional painter should take the time to inspect the job carefully before offering a quoted price. Otherwise, the pricing could be way off the actual project cost, and this creates unrealistic expectations and potential conflict. That is why we take our estimates seriously and are committed to transparency with every job we do.
How Much Does it Cost to Hire Painters?
The cost of painting your house depends entirely on the job – not only the square footage in question but whether the painting is happening on the interior or exterior of the home. Other factors play a role, as well. This is why the team at Elite Trade Painting cannot commit to rough estimates or “ballpark” jobs for people without a significant amount of information and in most cases a site inspection – we have a dedicated estimating process that works, and we use it for a reason. Providing a client with a clear cost for the project and the details on how it is being done and what areas are included is what we believe as a key to success and satisfied customers.
We can tell you that our professional painters are some of the best in the industry and we have rates that are comparable to other companies and painting services. Plus, we take pride in all that we do, and every job comes with our guarantee. If you want to find out just how affordable it can be to hire professional painters, contact us about an estimate. You might be surprised at what you find.
How Do We Estimate Interior Painting Jobs?
The interior estimation process starts with a walkthrough of the space being painted. Whether we’re painting one room or all of them, we’ll need to inspect the area. Some people want to send photos and room measurements, and that can work, but to get a 100% accurate estimate, we generally need to physically interact with the space to see how much work is involved and what the level of complexity is going to be.
We will walk through the space, inspecting the walls and perimeter for damage or any necessary repairs, as well as to determine exactly how much painting and prep will be required. Then, we’ll ask about things like moving furniture (you can do that yourself if you want), as well as other tasks that we can perform but that aren’t necessarily required. Once you decide on exactly what you want, we’ll go over the painting process, and then provide you with an estimate for the job.
How Do We Estimate Exterior Painting Jobs?
The exterior estimation has the same concerns as interior estimating, but the process of inspecting and determining a cost is a little different. We will consider preparation work (washing, scraping, caulking, priming, etc.), measurements of the house, number of windows, doors, and the accessibility of the areas to be painted. The type of siding or exterior finish your home has will impact the painting process and the cost, so that will be an important factor.
For example, aluminum and vinyl siding are easy to paint with very little preparation other than washing, but wood surfaces require more preparation before painting begins. We’ll include all of these variables in our estimate and ensure that you get an accurate quote.
What Does Our Painting Contract Include?
Your painting contract from Elite Trade Painting will include everything that you need from start to finish for your painting job, no matter how big or small it might be. We will ensure that your contract has the exact specifications of the job, including a full description of the area to be painted. We will fully describe the preparation process for each surface. We will also include a section on terms and conditions for the agreement, as well as the satisfaction guarantee that we give every customer. We’ll ensure that you understand exactly what we are doing and what you are doing before we agree to proceed.
Do You Handle Commercial Interior Painting?
Commercial interior painting is slightly different from traditional interior painting jobs. Therefore, it requires special expertise and a modified estimation process to ensure that the job is done right. We do have a dedicated team of commercial interior painters that can come to your business and provide an estimate of our services. The estimation process can be similar to residential estimation however we create a significant number of quotes based on plans provided by our commercial clients without onsite visits. There are also special timeframe considerations in place that are part of our commitment for every commercial project.
