Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a painter during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to use virtual tools for communication. If you’re hiring local interior and exterior painters, contact them to see if they’ll set up a video call to assess your project. During this call, they can get a feel for what needs to be done and may be able to give you a price quote. 

Discuss potential plans and strategies for getting the work done safely. And ask whether they accept virtual or digital payments.

How can I find out if a painter is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a painter is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, visit your local jurisdiction or state’s government website for information.

The CISA website also provides a helpful resource: Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page is intended for a national audience and includes 16 different categories of critical infrastructure sectors. Some jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure, but not all of them do.

Can I use digital payments to pay for painting services?

Many painters accept digital payments through Venmo, Square Cash, Google Pay, PayPal, Zelle and others. Due to COVID-19, others may quickly adopt this technology to maintain social distancing practices and follow health recommendations.

Contact professionals beforehand to ensure they’re able to accept digital payments and continue to follow safety guidelines throughout your interactions. Compare local interior and exterior painters’ profiles to see which types of payments they accept.

Does a painter need to enter my home?

If you’re hiring an exterior painter, the painter will likely not need to enter your home. But for interior paint jobs, the painter will need to enter your home.

When talking to potential painters, discuss a strategy to make sure you and the painter(s) stay safe while they’re completing the job in your home. Or, you might want to discuss scheduling the paint job at a later date.

Do painters offer remote or virtual services?

Though painting has always been an in-person job, painters may be willing to offer some virtual help due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If you come across painters’ profiles that state they offer remote services, message the painters to see what those services include.

How much value does painting add to a house?

Due to a lack of data available, it’s hard to say whether painting your home’s interior or exterior will increase its value. But there are some important things to keep in mind. 

If you're thinking about selling your home, you might want to repaint areas that look especially worn, dull or chipped so your house looks fresh and new to potential buyers. On the other hand, it’s possible some potential buyers will repaint the home upon moving in. So if you have a limited budget, your money (and time) might be better invested in other types of home projects, such as remodeling your bathroom or kitchen, installing new floors or fixing broken appliances

When in doubt, check with your realtor before making a final decision.

How often should you paint your walls?

You should repaint your home interior once every few years, depending on the condition of the current paint.

Paint on walls fades over time, regardless of the room — it could happen in a bedroom, kitchen, dining room, living room or bathroom. However, paint that is exposed to more dirt, particularly flat or matte paint textures, may need repainting more frequently.

Areas of the bathroom or kitchen that routinely get touched may show signs of collecting dirt and grease over time. These would require more frequent painting.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

How long does it take to paint a room?

The length of time it takes to paint a room varies, depending on a couple of factors. For example, the size of the job makes a difference. With a small bedroom, or with only a wall or two that have to be painted, the job can be done in half a day. Larger jobs take longer.

Also, if there are several different colors being used, the job may take longer, as one may have to dry before the other is applied. A 12-by-12 room with one color may take a morning. With multiple colors, the job may stretch into the afternoon.

Before you hire an interior painter near you, ask them how long it will take to paint the room(s) in your home.

Do you tip painters?

Yes, it’s best practice to tip house painters if you’re pleased with their work. Painters perform detailed, skilled work that can last for many years, if not decades. 

Tipping house painters is good etiquette. You can base the tip on the size of the crew, and request the amount to be evenly divided. Or, you can leave a tip based on the size of the job and leave it up to the foreman to decide how it is distributed among the crew. Sometimes — especially with big projects — the painters on the job change during the course of the project, so it’s often customary to leave one tip for the whole job.

Great work! They got our apartment painted within 2 days of my calling them. They came to the paint store to help us & painted the whole apartment in a very timely manner.

Champagne’s Reliable Painting just finished repainting our two bathrooms. The job required that wall paper be removed before the walls could be painted. Which was not an easy job. Corey did an excellent job. Our bathrooms look great. He was very reasonable, courteous, clean, and on time. I will use Champagne Reliable Painting again.

He did not do the painting like he led me to believe during the initial conversation. He sent a painter over to look at the job. His price was way too high initially. But I made an offer and they accepted it and did a very nice job of painting. There was a mixup in paints,but they paid for the replacement psint that was necessary to correct their error. I would use the painter again

I had my kitchen, foyer, stairwell, and trim painted. Overall, I am satisfied with the outcome and the service. Gabriel returned to apply another coat when I contacted him and indicated that I was not satisfied with the final appearance after the paint dried.

Gabriel did a perfect job painting my house. He pays attention to detail from prep work to pressure washing to caulking. His painting was meticulous. He fixed the hardware on my front door and a broken fence, which weren't even part of the contract. I will be hiring him again when I have to paint the interior of my house. He has a wide skill set and was very enjoyable to work with.

Medrano and his employees are nice, however I had to have them come back 3 times to finish painting. It's actually still not done, I have paint on my carpet, and roller fuzz on a few walls. I suppose this is what I get for hiring a stranger from the internet.

Randy did a great job on an interior painting project at my home. He provided an onsite evaluation including a written proposal, and his attention to detail and follow up were impressive. Randy is an upfront and honest man, and I would recommend him for any painting project you may need.

Julian did a great job painting a sign for our fraternity. He handled all materials, was responsive to our requests, and got it done in a very timely manner. He's very creative and will help you with the design and provide a rough draft prior to painting. The sign looks great and was reasonably priced. Everybody loves it.

Rolando and crew did a wonderful job painting the exterior of our house! We are very pleased with the work they did, and they are very nice and easy to work with. I could tell they really want to make their customers happy and do the job right! Our house is old (built in 1950) with wood siding so it took a lot of paint. Rolando made sure he stuck with the original estimate even though it actually required more paint than we initially thought. We are very happy and will use his service again in the future if we ever need any work done. Thank you!

I called to set up an estimate with Rolando for painting my kitchen & exterior awning & railings - we set a time for him to come by to view the scope of work. He never showed or called again. A couple weeks later he texted asking if I still needed painting. I responded yes & reminded him of the scope of work. He never responded. I cannot recommend this vendor.

Josh did wall and ceiling patchwork, painted the entire condo, pressure washed the deck, installed a ceiling fan, and changed out the socket covers and doorknobs. He transformed the place.

Corey and his team at Champagne’s Reliable Painting answered my request for an estimate immediately and professionally, always responded quickly to my messages and calls, and went to my property only a day after I first contacted them for my free estimate. They were an absolute pleasure to work with. Their estimate was much lower than the competition for the exact same work with the exact same brand of paint (Sherman Williams). I even threw in a couple last minute tasks that they added in at a fair price without extending the original timeline. The painters were on time and communicative, and according to my neighbor, folks were stopping on the sidewalk to tell them how great it looked. Highly recommend and will use Corey and his team at Champagne’s Reliable Painting again!!
