choosing an exterior painting contractor you have to realize that most
house painters do both interior and exterior painting as well. As a
small one-man operation I have painted exterior some years non-stop
from spring till fall. I even had indoor projects lined up for rain
days some years.
Now if you live in a mansion you are not going to want a small one or
two-man crew painting your house. It
will take way too long. You need to call a larger painting company that
does residential painting. They will have enough painters on hand to
complete the job in weeks – not months.

right contractor to the right property although a
larger company can send out painters to do the work at a reasonable
The benefit of smaller painting contractors is you may get better
quality work as well as a better price since the owner(s) may do some
or all of the work themselves.
If the painting contractor has a crew, the hourly rate will naturally
be higher than a smaller one, two or three-man operation. You have the
contractors rate plus the painters’ hourly rate along with health
benefits and all the other things employers have to pay for.
