Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost to hire an interior painter ranges between $200-$2,700. Interior painters can tackle everything from complete color makeovers in each of your rooms to touching up an accent wall to painting pieces of furniture. The square footage and complexity of the project, along with the materials needed, are the main factors that will affect cost. Other factors include whether you supply the paint yourself or want the painter to do so, whether you move the furniture and do the prep work or ask them to do it, and whether any repair work is needed on the walls.

Painting the ceiling and the trim will also have an effect on cost. The type of paint you choose can also raise or lower your house painting cost. A gallon of paint may range from $20 to over $100, depending on quality and brand. Ask your painter if they charge per hour or per square foot, and how much you can save by doing prep work (moving furniture, etc.) yourself.

How much should interior painting cost per square foot?

You can expect a 12x12-foot average room with 8-foot ceilings to cost $100 to paint, while a 16x16-foot room with 9-foot ceilings could cost around $175. 

To calculate the cost of interior painting per square foot, measure the square footage of wall space and ceiling space of your room. From this, you can estimate the number of gallons of paint needed to cover the wall space and compare it to these figures. You can also ask interior painters near you to provide an estimate before you hire them.

How much does it cost to paint the interior of a house?

Interior house painting costs are calculated on a few key factors. Nationally, interior house painting projects range from $917 (for one room) to $4,893 (for eight rooms). The wide price range indicates how much square footage, paint selection and labor can affect cost. One pro uses a laser to measure each room, subtracting the size of the doors and windows, and then bases the quote on the square footage of the actual surfaces to be painted.

Painters may provide you with savings if you opt to paint your entire home rather than just having one room or an accent wall painted. For example, the average house painting cost for an 8x12 room with 8-foot ceilings is roughly $200, when contractor-grade paint is used. Painting ceilings, baseboards and frames can also affect cost. Pros may charge per linear foot to smooth and paint baseboards.

In one area, pros might charge 50 cents per linear foot to paint baseboards, while pros in another part of the country could charge $1.50 per linear foot for the same task. Painters may charge flat rates for painting door and window frames, with one charging $20-$25 and another $60 per door. Geography and regional costs to do business play a major role in the cost of interior painting. The same painter in a rural region has less to pay in taxes, transportation, insurance and overhead than they would in a major city like New York.

How much do interior painters charge per hour?

You can expect to pay $50 per hour for interior painting. This price will change depending on a number of factors and may range between $30 and $160 per hour. Some factors include the height of the rooms, the complexity of the painting and more.

For an accurate cost estimate, request quotes from local painters and contractors.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Should you wash walls before painting?

Yes, in most cases you’ll want to clean your wall before painters start. Washing walls before painting helps get rid of dirt and grime that could affect how the paint adheres, including primer. You can do this using a wall washer, especially if the top of the wall is hard to reach. 

The best way to clean walls is to use a solvent that won’t affect the surface underneath. Some experts recommend using a sponge, warm water and/or a mild detergent or soap. Abrasive washing may remove some of the current pain.

Cleaning painted walls should be done with care. If you’re not comfortable with washing the walls yourself, consider hiring a house cleaner near you.

Ray and his crew have been working with us on projects for the last couple months, and I would highly recommend for interior paint and drywall. He is timely and responsive to all our jobs, and he was very flexible to work around our family’s schedule. He painted the interior of our house and patched a dog door as the first project. Second project was to paint our kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room cabinets which turned out awesome! Lastly, was painting our fireplace. All turned out great and we’d definitely hire Ray and his team in the future!

Finesse painting did a great job painting the interior of my house, and did so for a reasonable price. They were courteous, professional, and fast. Nick was upfront about the cost for the job, and repaired all of the holes I had in my drywall. There were areas where curtain rods were removed, and Nick took care of them as well. If I need painting done again, I'll be sure to hire Finesse painting.

We had the entire interior of the house re-painted. There were a lot of different colors, metallic paint, high gloss paint, it was kaleidoscope. They put whatever amount of coats of paint needed for a particular area. Albert replaced an inset shrine on one wall and you can't tell it was there to begin with. The entire crew were very nice, very courteous and very professional. They were prompt, worked until 6 one night and all day Saturday to finish the job. I will definitely use them again, and will recommend them to anyone who's looking for a good painting company. They're awesome!

Though I did not end up selecting them (I had an immediate need to get interior painting done on a house for sale), Maya Blue was prompt, professional and courteous in coming out to take measurements and give a written quote. Their pricing was fair and the same as the firm that was selected. I would definitely consider them for my next project.

What an absolutely amazing job Luke did on my interior! I set out to get several bids for the job. Eco-Life was by far the most responsive and competitive. I was pleasantly surprised when the service was even better than the initial contact. My house looks amazing. He was a true professional, did a great job and I have already asked him to come back and paint 2 rooms i had not intended to paint but dang it.. he makes it so easy.

We had to paint 3 different colors in two different rooms and are very happy with the work and job that was done. He was flexible with his time and worked around our schedules nicely. Additionally, my wife wanted one of the walls changed to a different color (through no fault of his own) and came back out for an affordable price a second time around. I will use him in the future with all interior painting needs. Note - our walls were very textured and he did a great job making it look neat.

So glad I chose Valdez Professional Painters to do some interior painting for us. Luis did an awesome job over a 2-day period and he did not miss anything. He was very professional, on time and the quality of his work was exceptional. He will be my go-to painter going forward and will be highly recommended to friends and family. Thank you for making Luis a part of your Thumbtack professionals.

Albert and his crew did an excellent job of painting the interior of our whole house. I was in desperate need of painter (at a short notice) so I can put my house up for sale. Albert promptly responded to my inquiry and started on the job promptly. He was very professional, and very pleasant to work with. His crew left the house - with light fixtures, blinds, switch board all promptly put back in their place. The crew finished the job in 2 days and that helped me stay in track for putting the house in the market. I would highly recommend these guys!

I hired Albert and his company to paint the interior of my almost 2000-square foot home. My decision to hire his company was based on several things: 1) Albert responded to my post on Thumbtack almost immediately, 2) he provided me with a very reasonable quote for the job (I had received bids that were lower and higher than Albert's), and 3) the extensive amount of glowing reviews on Thumbtack regarding his services. I was not disappointed. The job lasted four full days from approximately 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The crew was always punctual (even when coming back from lunch), and continuously worked the entire day. They were also very respectful and exhibited much patience when it came to my small dog, Marco. He's a barker, but the guys never showed anything but patience and friendliness towards him. More importantly, however, is the high quality of their work. I reviewed every room before the job was completed and had only a few requests for touch-ups. Those requests were met without complaint or annoyance. They were completed promptly and to my satisfaction. I am very happy with the new look of my house. I would definitely use Albert's services again and would highly recommend his company to anyone.
