That painting party they had on the last episode of your favorite TV show is easier said than done. While a fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest ways to spruce up your home, do-it-yourself projects are time consuming, and finding a reliable painter is always a challenge.

With Paintzen, a new service available in Boston, the process is faster and easier. Once only available in New York and San Fransisco, Paintzen cuts the work of booking, scheduling, and paying painters. The site offers price quotes for home and office painting, 24 hours a day.

Through a quick series of questions, you’ll choose the kind of painting you need, be it interior or exterior, estimate the layout and size of the space, and specify the ceiling height. Painting ceilings, baseboards, moldings, and door frames can also be factored into the estimate. The company will also supply the paint, if needed. They work exclusively with Benjamin Moore, so the ever-popular Fenway Collection, with Green Monster and Foul Pole Yellow, is available.

After a painter is selected, booking and scheduling takes place through the site. All painters have background checks and are insured by Paintzen. In addition to the painting, they’ll bring supplies and handle wall prep and cleanup.
