Exceeded my expectations for painting a bathroom vanity white and refinishing a second vanity by sanding down prior stain and polyurethane and restaining. Took extra time to apply a third coat so the finish was darker like I had hope because I bought stain that was slightly too light. Very conscious of personal space and things, had tools and supplies required and cleaned up after. Would highly recommend and hire again.

Always punctual and polite, Bob and his crew are top notch! They make sure to do a thorough job of the work and asked us daily if we were satisfied with the work that was done. They put me at ease with their easy going, friendly personalities. The work place was always left clean for the next day and surprised me by doing little good deeds here and there. I would hire them again in a blink and would recommend them to anyone that is in need of paint work done in their home. It was really a pleasure to meet them.

After purchasing our first home- we were excited to paint everything on our own....I soon found out it was way too much for us to do with the time crunch we were working with- we started frantically seeking out help- so happy we came across D3 services!! They were amazing!! They willing worked with our schedule, came the very next day, and had it finished the following day! 2 decent sized bedrooms w/accent walls, a pretty large open concept living room/kitchen and two hallways!! We were so impressed with PJ, his painting skills and were very comfortable leaving him a key so he could work however long he wanted to. My boyfriend and I are looking forward to hiring them again to paint our basement and upper level of our home. Defiantly would recommend D3 Services to anyone looking for professional painters!!

John always does a top quality job. He has done house inspections for my real estate customers and is very thorough with his inspection and delivers a email report with excellent pictures of the items inspected. He also is a precision painter. He can paint without taping and still not mess up the lines. He also does electrical work, plumbing, etc. All is done with great expertise. His work and knowledge of the workings of houses is top shelf.

I contacted Matt and told him it was not an urgent issue but my shower drain was running slow. I told him if he could come out in the next week or two it would be nice, he was able to come out the next day and diagnose the drain issue and fix it. Had him look at other plumbing projects on the to do list. Would recommend.

This was a big project. We live in a ranch house with cathedral ceilings in living room. We contracted for painting of: Ceilings in LR, DR, kitchen, hallway to guest room, hallway going downstairs. Walls painted were LR, both hallways and kitchen. Not the DR because wallpapered. Wallpaper in kitchen below the chair rail was removed too and a border in the LR. Also, 11 doors were painted, the side shown, not inside. He also patched a hole in the front steel door and painted that and the wood around the garage and front threshold at No Charge. However, the wood trim will most likely need to be redone next Summer properly; sanding first then painted, but for the quick coverup was good. He buys his paint from Sherwin Williams at contractor pricing at $40 a can and we had to pay $494 in materials. I asked for all left over paint and a drop cloth that we paid for. I also asked for the receipts too. They started on a Tuesday and concluded by Thursday afternoon which pleasantly surprised us. Our last professional job was done in a week but they were much slower. In our last professional paint job, we bought Behr paint at Home Depot, 5 gallons of the same color. No ceilings were done then. I think that paint bought 12 years ago was $89? Mike likes Sherwin Williams and I'm glad they are a Cleveland company, but we'll see how it stands up in the next 10 years. We are a Behr paint family. The finish of the paint is supposed to be washable but it feels more flat but it isn't. We have two messy English Springers too. Always wear and tear in the home. We did have a choice to use Behr as well but went with his professional recommendation. The paint job was excellent and the reason I gave a 4 star versus 5 was because from the clean up sanding dust from patching nail holes and other larger holes. I had to clean all the chair rails and baseboards and little flicks of paint all over the wood floors and other floors. Just flicked them off with my nail. I just had carpets cleaned before they came and his helpers would walk over the hallway carpet without a runner on the carpet. I was freaking out a little and had to ask them to put down a drop cloth. They moved a curio cabinet, again not Mike, but his helper, and it got gouged on the bottom. I will do the touch up myself with stain. The paint on the ceilings, the walls and the doors were excellent. Mike caulked the window he painted too. So overall, it would be 4-1/2 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if that was an available choice. I would hire again.

We did hire Paul Decker to do some work at our house in Painesville Ohio. These jobs included replacing all the screens in the gazebo painting and also refinishing our deck. Mr. Decker was prompt and completed the job within a few days. Everything was neat and clean up was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable about how to accomplish the job and Helped us choose the proper screens for the gazebo. It looks much better without all of the old holes and wear signs. We also wanted a gate custom built for our deck. He manufactured this and painted it to match the rest of the railing around the deck and it works perfectly. The price was fair and I would highly recommend handyman services.

Eric did a great job. He was very knowledgeable of older homes and he did a lot of repair work. I got a lot more than just a coat of paint and I got the peace of mind that my house was being treated well. He was very personable and professional and I am working with him again on more rooms in my house.

it's a difficult job with a camped space, but he did relatively well, and the charge for the whole job is reasonable. there's a few spots missed on paint over though, but it doesn't matter much as an utility room.

I appreciate everything Ben did for our home. I hired him to paint a living room and a bathroom and both were done in a 3 day time period and it looks amazing. He had suggestions on paint colors and bought the paint at a discounted price. He works hard and I totally trusted having him in my house, even if I couldn't be there. Highly recommend.

Very neat work. He took good care of my furniture and carpet being careful not to get paint on them. It's been a few years since he has painted and the job was so professionally done it still looks good. I would definitely hire him again.

Very pleased with Make a Deal Painting. I built my home 12 years ago and their work was excellent beyond anything I could have imagined. They are professional,experienced, and when asked for an opinion it was better than the color schemes used by the original builder.I admit to being "old school at age 65" but this company did not fail in any area, job preparation, skill and respect within my home was exceptional. The responsiveness to detail was unquestioned, prior to leaving the crew took it upon themselves to sand and refinish a door not included and at no additional cost because, "it would be noticeable that the door was not included" and I was just awestruck...I pride myself on being able to pick out half ass from real craftsman..these guys are truly great and I urge their bidding your work.....

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost for an interior painter ranges between $450 and $900. Interior painters can tackle everything from complete color makeovers in each of your rooms to touching up an accent wall to painting pieces of furniture. The square footage and complexity of the project, along with the materials needed, are the main factors that will affect cost. Other factors include whether you supply the paint yourself or want the painter to do so, whether you move the furniture and do the prep work or ask them to do it, and whether any repair work is needed on the walls. Painting the ceiling and the trim will also have an effect on cost. The type of paint you choose can also raise or lower your house painting cost. A gallon of paint may range from $20 to over $100, depending on quality and brand. Ask your painter if they charge per hour or per square foot, and how much you can save by doing prep work (moving furniture, etc.) yourself.

How much does it cost to paint the interior of a house?

Interior house painting costs are calculated on a few key factors. Nationally, interior house painting projects range from $200 to $2,500. The wide price range indicates how much square footage, paint selection and labor can affect cost. One pro uses a laser to measure each room, subtracting the size of the doors and windows, and then bases the quote on the square footage of the actual surfaces to be painted. Painters may provide you with savings if you opt to paint your entire home rather than just having one room or an accent wall painted. For example, the average house painting cost for an 8x12 room with 8-foot ceilings is roughly $200, when contractor-grade paint is used. Painting ceilings, baseboards and frames can also affect cost. Pros may charge per linear foot to smooth and paint baseboards. In one area pros might charge 50 cents per linear foot to paint baseboards, while pros in another part of the country could charge $1.50 per linear foot for the same task. Painters may charge flat rates for painting door and window frames, with one charging $20-$25 and another $60 per door. Geography and regional costs to do business play a major role in the cost of interior painting. The same painter in a rural region has less to pay in taxes, transportation, insurance and overhead than they would in a major city like New York.

How much does a painter charge per room?

The cost to paint a room will vary based on the size of the room, the type of paint you select, any ceiling or trim work needed, and any repairs needed. If no repairs or other additional work is needed, painting a room with contractor-grade paint could range from $1 to $2 per square foot, including materials. Selecting a luxury paint (some cost more than $100 per gallon) will certainly increase your house painting costs. Here are some additional examples of average house painting costs, per room:

  • 12x12 room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 12x12 room with an 8-foot ceiling: about $100
  • 14x16 master bedroom with a 9-foot ceiling: about $150
  • 14x16 master bedroom with an 8-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 16x16 living room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $175
  • 16x16 living room with a 20-foot ceiling: starting at $225
