NYC Apartment Painters
Belle R. rated

Oh my gosh, these guys were so fantastic. I just can't say enough about what they did for our apartment. I must've gushed about them to a million people - they deserve every bit of good press! My partner and I hired NYC Apartment Painters to redo our home. It's not a very big space but we've got several hard-to-access walls in weird shapes (typical of small NYC apartments squeezed in between air shafts and stairwells and whatnot). Over the years we messed around with colors and textures and tools to reach those corners, and then we got too lazy to retouch or fix up or change. The walls were a complete mess. When we called up these guys they were professional, easygoing and utterly undaunted. My partner is also a bit of a waffler and goes on quite a bit, and the guy on the phone (and in person) were so patient. Getting a quote and making the appointment was easy, no red tape or extra sales pitches. The painters came on time, finished earlier than quoted, and left everything spotlessly clean. They moved everything back to where they were originally. Everything was neat and beautifully done. We loved the result. I fought my partner on hiring painters - sure, we could do everything ourselves, right? - but no, we couldn't have done nearly a tenth of the job these guys did. I'm so happy to have found them and would hire them again and again.

We had a great experience with their crew. They painted the interior of most of our apartment (4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms), had them repaint doors, windows and everything else. Their work was well done and thorough, and they had no problem adapting when I threw last minute requests at them. For example, while they were there, I asked them to remove the brass frame around my fireplace, which they did at no cost. I also asked if they could tighten the bannister on our stairs and rebuild our back steps. They did both for very reasonable costs. The only critique that I'd had of working with them was that they didn't provide an itemized breakdown of the costs in an invoice. However, when I typed it up and asked them to confirm, they did so, so at least I have some record of the work they did. I would probably use them again on future projects, though. They're very hard workers and eager to do any projects I threw at them.

I highly recommend Painters NYC!!!! It`s the third painting company to work on my house and I will definitely work with Tim and his crew again. They did our master bedroom (remove wallpaper of the walls, clean up the surface, skim coat walls to smooth, repair cracks, nail pops on ceiling and walls, prime walls), master closet and dining room. I made the mistake of not buying enough paint, so Tim also strategized where to paint first in case the job could not be completed on the first visit. After I brought more paint, the painters finished the job earlier than I expected. I must say I could not be more pleased when they painted the stair risers as well- just because they were working in those areas already and thought the juxtaposition of the newly painted and not painted didn't look so great. Overall, the job was done very well and I would use them again.

Painted dining room, kitchen, great room, 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. All work was completed within one week. The team was incredibly professional and trustworthy. According to the estimate and my requests the guys were able to complete the entire job within a narrow window of time. The crew showed up on time, started right away and finished in the time frame. When the job was complete they cleaned everything up. I could say I found them to be communicative and responsive throughout the process, with quick exchanges on paint selection in particular. The actual paint job itself was excellent making it look like we have brand new walls in our house. All went just as it was explained to me so I am very pleased with the results. Definitely would hire them again.

Our Offices Look amazing. 5 star manhattan company.

JB Painters recently finished painting our office in the financial district in manhattan. The attention to detail and organization of the staff by the owner john, was amazing. He gave us a very decent estimate for painting our 14,000 square feet office space. John came to give us an estimate the same day that we called him an was able to start four days later. He had a crew of 7 guys daily and he was always at site and kept us updated daily. They are fully insured and john is very organized and puts attention to detail. They are based in midtown manhattan and the entire process from start to finish was very smooth and relaxed. If you are looking for a proffessional painting company this is your best option.Highly recommend John and his crew.

Reliable,Professional and Organized.

We chose JB Painters to paint our new apartment in Midtown. Jonathan was a pleasure to work with, he and his crew were polite, professional and easy to communicate with.They were able to visit me and gave me an estimate the same day. They were on-time each day and finished ahead of schedule. They were extremely considerate of our new floors - there was not a single speck of paint out of place. I think our apartment was cleaner when he left than when he started! He even came back for touch-ups after the job was fully payed.We also appreciated that he was able to accomodate our tight schedule,excellent company. His price was very competitive and delivered high end job. If you need a professional Painting job done this is the way to go.

2 painters from Painters NYC provided interior painting services. Tim the foreman contacted me within 4 hours and we scheduled an appointment for the next week. The painters showed up on time on the day we scheduled for. They prepare the walls to ensure that they were smooth with plaster, sanding and then paint. I must say I've had several sets of painters come to my house in recent months - I was most pleased with Painters NYC. They were the cleanest (no drops of fine splatters of paint on my wood floors) and the borders between the wall and baseboard showed clean lines. The paint job looks great. I would hire them again!

Tim was very attentive and knowledgeable on the phone. He answered all my questions, helped with a color matching issue that I had and advised me on the proper paint to use for each surface. Overall very pleased with Painters NYC `s service. The team that came to my house presented themselves prompt, were clean and well dressed. My only concern was they were a bit rushed on the last day and didn't put everything back correctly, i.e. a shelving unit. Though this was a very minor concern and something they addressed after we informed them. I would hire these guys again and plan to do so to paint my kitchen.

Highly Recommend JB Manhattan Painters.

Jonathan was fantastic to deal with. From beginning to end he was always there to respond to emails, phone calls, extremely reliable and trustworthy. Best of all, my apartment walls look great! I can't wait for my friends and family to come over to my apartment now. Jonathan had a crew that worked while I was at work and they left the windows open so that by the time I got home each day, I could sleep in my room and go about my business as usual! He was such a nice guy and I give him my highest recommendation! I look forward to calling JB Painters again for any future job.

Rcommended Painters.

Although our apartment had many cracks, chipped, and missing areas of stucco Jonathan and his team of 5 workers attacked them and now it is hard to find where they existed. Each morning the guys showed up quitely at 8 am and when they left every evening they cleaned up and left no mess. Believe it or not, having painters working on our apartment for about two weeks was not a problem what-so-ever. If you are looking for a professional painting company, JB Painters is the one to use. It would be hard for me to use anyone else in the future.

Did You Know?

Painting can be a significant undertaking, whether you're painting just one room or an entire home. While some people like to take on this project themselves, many choose to hire professionals to ensure the task is completed correctly.

Types of Interior Paint

Matte Paint

Matte paint doesn't have a shiny quality when it dries, which many homeowners prefer for their interior walls. This is the most popular style of paint for homes. It covers up irregularities in the wall well but is also easily blemished.

Matte Enamel Paint

Matte enamel paint has all the positive qualities of matte paint but will last longer and isn't scuffed as easily.

Gloss Paint

Gloss paint will dry with a shine to it and is the second-most popular choice for interior wall paint. The shiny quality highlights imperfections in a surface, so people tend to stay away from it when painting wood.

Semi-Gloss Paint

Semi-gloss is also shiny but less so than gloss paint. It's more commonly used on trim than on walls.

Satin Paint

Satin falls somewhere between gloss and matte in terms of shininess. It will highlight imperfections well, like gloss, but is easy to clean.

Eggshell Paint

Eggshell is also between gloss and matte on the shininess scale, but it won't highlight imperfections quite as much as satin, semi-gloss, or gloss.

Types of Exterior Paint

Exterior paints have similar choices for finishes as interior paints, but the pros and cons can be different for outdoor use.

Gloss Paint

Though gloss paint will make imperfections easily seen, it will also hold up to the elements the best. This paint is best suited for areas of a home or building that are frequently used, like door frames.

Semi-Gloss Paint

Semi-gloss paint is similarly long-lasting but isn't as shiny as gloss.

Satin Paint

Satin paint is commonly used for siding but will display irregularities underneath if the siding isn't in good shape.

Flat Paint

Flat paint is the best choice if painting over siding that has many dents, scrapes, or other imperfections.

Oil-Based Paint

If you're repainting a home that has been previously painted with oil-based paint, your best bet is to stick with this option. Water-based paint layered over old oil-based paint will peel easily.

Water-Based Paint

Water-based paint, or latex paint, dries quickly and cleans up easily, making it the preferred paint for a home's exterior. It will also expand when warm and contract when cool, which means it will hold up in all types of weather.

Hiring a Painter

When embarking on a project as big as painting your home, it's important to know ahead of time what kind of quality you can expect from the painters you hire. Don't settle for the first one you find or the cheapest option. Instead, do your homework to be sure that you hire a trustworthy professional who knows how to paint a house well.

The first thing you'll do when hiring a painter is request quotes from three or four in your area. If you reach out to too many, you'll wind up wasting time narrowing down your list; too few and you may not end up with the best quality or right price.

The typical price range for an interior paint job is between $400 and $4,120, with the average falling around $1,670, depending on the scope of the project and paint requests. It will typically cost around $380 to $790 to paint a typical 10-by​-12 foot room.

The cost to paint a home's exterior is a little higher: between $730 and $5,600, with an average of $2,624. The typical home of between 500 and 1,500 square feet will generally cost between $1,000 and $3,000, but this will change depending on the number of stories and home location.

If a quote seems high, ask the contractor what is increasing the price point. Perhaps it's something that can be negotiated, or maybe this business is just overpricing their services. On the other hand, be skeptical of any price points that seem unfathomably low. There could be a reason their prices are below the industry norm - perhaps their quality standards are uncommonly low, too.

Once you have quotes, conduct an over-the-phone interview with your prospects. Some important questions to ask your painter include:

1. Do you have insurance?

It's never a good idea to hire a contractor whose business isn't properly insured. Ask both about comprehensive business liability insurance and workers' compensation, and don't be hesitant to ask for proof. If you are unsure of the validity of the insurance, you can also call the insurance company to double-check that it is an active policy.

2. Do you have a warranty?

Not offering a warranty is a red flag, and you may want to be cautious about hiring a company that doesn't provide one. If they have a warranty, ask how long it lasts, and what it covers. Additionally, you'll want to get the warranty in writing should you need to refer to it later.

3. Who, specifically, will be in my house, and can I trust them?

You always have a right to know who will be entering your home. If the person you are speaking with says he or she will not be personally supervising the project, ask who will be, what their role is, and how long they've been with the company.

Also, don't be afraid to ask if the painters are trustworthy people. Unfortunately, there are plenty of cases where a painter has stolen items from a home or caused damage to the house or injury to the homeowner. Subcontractors may not be as skilled as employees, and the contractor you're hiring may not have much experience working with them, making them more of a risk. Additionally, ask if the painters are employees or subcontractors, and what the screening or hiring process is like. If the company conducts background checks, that's a good sign. 

4. What kind of training do your employees receive?

If the contractor makes a point to train new hires on safety techniques as well as quality standards on the job, you're probably in good hands.

5. What kind of paint will you use?

The quality of the paint will affect how good the walls look when the project is completed. If your contractor says they plan on using a paint you don't like, feel free to request an alternative.

6. How long have you been in business, and do you have references?

A well-established company will have more experience and likely more references for you to reach out to than a new company that's just getting off the ground. Be sure to ask for references so you can speak to former customers about their experience working with the painter. When speaking to these people, ask about:

  • Whether they had issues with the crew
  • If the painters were messy or neat
  • How the paint has held up since the project was completed

7. How much wall prep is included in the price?

For a long-lasting paint job, a clean wall is crucial. Ask how they plan to clean your walls, if at all, before getting started. A high-quality company will thoroughly prepare a wall so that the paint will lay smoothly and last a long time.

8. Are you active in the community and are you involved in any trade organizations?

Community involvement shows the company:

  • Is established and well-known
  • Cares about its customers
  • Is confident in their work

Additionally, being active in trade organizations indicates it is likely up to date on the latest industry best practices and that the company is dedicated to its trade. Also, a Better Bureau Business membership demonstrates the company is stable, confident, and willing to let potential customers check them out before hiring them.

Trade Organizations for Painters

If the company you hire is involved in a trade organization, it shows they take pride in their work, and are dedicated to providing quality service. Some top trade organizations painters might be a part of include:

Painting and Decorating Contractors of America

PDCA connects painters and home decorators through local chapters and councils. The organization also provides webinars, educational videos, and podcasts so members can stay up to date on the latest best practices and news.

American Coatings Association

The ACA doesn't focus on best practices so much as it does on best products. The nonprofit is dedicated to research and development of high-quality paint products as well as sustainability issues.

Finishing Contractors Association

The FCA has members that are painters as well as professionals who focus on flooring, drywall, and other elements to home construction and renovation.

Better Business Bureau

The BBB isn't a painter-specific group but rather an organization that is dedicated to ensuring that consumers can access information about anyone they do business with. The BBB also rates companies based on a Standards of Trust scale, which goes from A+ to F. A company doesn't have to be a member to get a grade, and it's a good idea to check to see how your contractor is scored as well as its membership status.
