Painter for a Day


As we’ve been serving our residential customers we’ve noticed that our customers sometimes need small painting jobs done. It may be a ceiling, or the walls in a room. It might be some fascia trim, or a few doors. The job may be too small to call for a quotation, but still it needs to be done!

We are pleased to offer:


You can have a Professional Painter  from M&I Painting and Remodeling  Crew come to your home and work for a day, under your direction. You supply the paint, and we’ll supply the professional labor to make your home look great!

1.What amount of work can a Painter for a Day get done?

Every home is different, and no two rooms, doors, or window frames are alike, and so it’s not possible to say specifically what he can accomplish. Some walls require significantly more repair, while others may involve cutting around difficult trim details. Even the color can substantially add to the labor  especially if it is a deep or accent color  But to give you a general idea, a professional painter would typically be able to:

  • Paint the walls, door and baseboards in typical bedroom, or
  • Paint approximately 4-5 doors and frames, both sides, or
  • Paint the baseboards in a small apartment, or
  • Paint the garage doors on a home, or
  • Stain and finish a newly installed front entry door, or
  • Paint the ceilings in 3 average sized bedrooms, or
  • Paint the walls in 2 average-sized rooms (excluding closets, trim & doors), or
  • Do minor wall repair and paint several walls, sections of baseboard, or closets

2.What happens if I need the Painter for Day for more than one day?

If the Painter has personal availability, he may be able to stay an extra hour or two on the day he working for you. If necessary, you can book the Painter for Day for a second day (at the Painter for Day daily rate), although it may be a little while before his schedule will be able to accommodate the second day.

3.What about additional materials that may be needed?

Sometimes additional caulking, wall repair, masking or other materials are needed to do the job right. If this is the case, either you can purchase the materials, or you can have our Painter purchase the materials.

4.What constitutes part of the Painter for Day’s work time, and what does not?

All the Painter’s time on site constitutes part of his work time, with the exception of his coffee and lunch break. Additionally, if he needs to leave the site to purchase more paint or materials on your behalf, this is part of his work day (you may want to minimize this by doing these errands yourself).

5.What if the Painter for Day finishes my work in less than a day?

Since our painter is booked for the entire day, and likely can’t fill the rest of his day with other paid hours, there is no refund for partial days of work.

6.Are there restrictions on what the Painter for Day can do?

The rate is based on work under 25′ in height, and the Painter being able to gain safe access to the work area. Also, some specialty finishes, such as faux and metallic finishes, and installing wall covering, are not available under the Painter for a day. The Painter for Day can do spray work, but there is an additional per day charge for the use of a spray machine, and the cost of whatever additional masking materials are used.

7.Basic painting equipment and materials that the Painter for Day will have with him:

  • Filler for minor wall dents & nail or screw holes
  • Caulking for minor cosmetic caulking (up to one tube)
  • Scrapers and filling knives
  • Basic sanding materials
  • Paint brushes, rollers, trays, roller extension
  • Drywall sealer & water borne primer for minor spot priming
  • Drop-cloths and rags
  • Masking materials for minor masking
  • Ladders to access up to 25′ (Customer must inform us of any work planned over 10′ in height so that we have the proper ladders with us.)
