Considerate and Respectful

We work efficiently in furnished and unfurnished spaces, including homes where artwork, children and pets are present. When hiring we prioritize attitude, skill and ownership. You simply will not find a more courteous or polite paint crew.  Catchlight is an EPA Lead-Safe Certified residential painting company, trained to carefully manage projects where lead paint is a concern.

How Much Will My Interior Painting Project Cost?

Customers frequently call requesting over the phone pricing. Truth is, house painting is custom work, so it’s difficult to estimate cost prior to viewing the space and discussing your objectives. Are there significant holes and cracks in need of repair? What is the condition of the ceiling and trim? Are there windows, built-in cabinets, radiators and closets to paint or paint around? Is lead paint a factor? Will the new color be significantly darker or lighter than the existing color? Is your goal to freshen or thoroughly restore the space? Knowing answers to such questions does make a rough estimate possible by phone, but nothing takes the place of meeting with a Catchlight estimator – free of charge.

Catchlight Pricing And Value

Catchlight is not a budget painting company. Our customers tend to be house proud homeowners who value a job well done.  It takes time, skill and experience to produce results that are beautiful, durable, and guaranteed to last.  Because thorough surface preparation is critical to achieving a strong bond between a surface and newly applied finish, Catchlight proposals include a greater amount of time for surface preparation than many of our competitor’s proposals.

In addition, Catchlight crew members are legal, drug tested, their backgrounds are checked, and they are full-time professional painters, not part-timers. They earn a living wage that reflects their expertise, skill and professional commitment to our craft. Nearly anyone can paint, but few paint with the level of technical expertise, efficiency and service excellence that our crew exemplify on each and every project.

In short, our interior painting services produce superb results at a fair price. We are happy to work within your budget, we offer a winter discount from late fall through early spring, and we welcome inquiries regarding our work process and hourly rate.
