I have no idea what the going rates are in your area but to look for an hourly tradesman is unknowingly asking for trouble. Get solid bids/estimaes for projects. You could get a crooked guy that sounds great until he drags the project well past your intended price point by running up the hours. Or you could get an honest painter that does quality work and will go along with the hourly quote. Even if he's fair you may not feel he's done the work as fast as he could have. It's a recipe for a bad relationship that doesn't work out well as often as people like to think it can.
