Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 does it cost to get the outside of your house painted?

You can expect to pay around $2,535 to get the outside of your house painted, though this cost will increase with larger house sizes (and decrease with smaller ones). The average hourly rate for exterior painters is $45 and ranges from $25-$75.

Wood, brick, stucco, vinyl, aluminum and stone each have their own set of demands. Contact exterior painters near you to get a detailed cost estimate for your house.

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.

What should I look for when choosing a painter?

When choosing a painter, pay attention to online reviews and ratings. Reviews with pictures are especially valuable, as these showcase the painter’s work. It’s also important to check whether your state requires licenses for painters — if it’s required, your contractor should be able to present their license. 

Finally, compare estimates and quotes from multiple painters near you. Take into consideration what each one guarantees with the job, including factors like higher-quality paint, extensive preparation and a good warranty.

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.

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.

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.

What should I expect from a painting contractor?

You should expect an estimate based on an actual examination of the house, as well as a plan for exactly what the painter will do. During the job, the painters should behave professionally while working as efficiently as possible to complete the job in a reasonable timeframe. Afterward, the only evidence of the paint job should be the paint itself — a professional contractor will clean up thoroughly once a job is done.

Paint job was not finished in a timely manner. Made a mess of my new floors and cabinets. Paint wasn’t applied evenly and there are streaks of old color showing through. Plenty of spaces that weren’t even painted because they were “hidden” and so painter cut corners.

I have used LGP Painting for two complete house paintings, total exterior and interior and they were outstanding both times. They were on time, finished and time and cleanup was perfect. The painting both inside and out was done with attention to detail and care. Baseboards were beautiful, lines were straight and coverage was excellent. I will use them again on any paint projects I have.

Had Molina's Painting paint the outside of our townhouse in the prescribed colors and it looks amazing! They were meticulous in covering all that did not require painting and ensured, and cleanup ensued with everything being returned to it's place. I have them on speed-dial for future jobs!

Philippe did an excellent job painting two oversized rooms a stark white with an extremely difficult-to work-with paint that required multiple coats of primer and paint to cover dark colors. He was patient, meticulous and polite giving a lot of attention to detail. I highly recommend Philippe if you would like a great paint job that’s done right by someone who brings positive energy into your home. Thank you Philippe!

Solid Work Painting just completed painting the exterior of my home. They did an excellent job. Francisco pays attention to details, even painted extra items I wasn't expecting included in price. His pricing was very fair and I'm very pleased with the results. He is also very professional, friendly and respectful of working space, leaving my yard cleaner than he found it. He did a complete walk around before and after to be sure my expectations were met. I will be using Solid Work Painting for my other big paint jobs and highly recommend him.

Hans did an incredible job painting the interior of my house. He was punctual and put up and my appointment changes several times. The price was fair and included the paint which I chose the color of. Hans had great recommendations and knows his work and industry well. I plan to refer and use Southwest Painting in the future. Thank you!

This company removed the popcorn ceilings and painted the entire interior of my home. Hans is a very hard worker who is timely both in keeping appointments and the time estimated to complete this project. He did a good job and I was pleased with his painting. My only concern was lack of overall and continuous protection of the floor. There are some paint drips, smudges and dried paint/drywall mud flakes that have been tracked over unprotected floors after the plastic was removed, but the work was still in progress. Hans gave me an excellent price and was able to begin the job in a timely manner. I would hire SW Painting again for any future projects.

They were great, got us scheduled quickly and ended up moving us up a few days! Painted a 25 foot high ceiling for us and did a great job covering the buttercup yellow the previous owner had painted the ceiling. Professional and affordable. Also did a stellar job taping and covering everything very thoroughly before painting.

Southwest Painting did an excellent job painting 2 bathrooms that needed two colors, ceilings & woodwork. I decided I wanted a different color for the bathroom. He went with me to select the color & helped with the choice at a reasonable extra rate. He is a real gem of a painter & I would absolutely recommend him & hire him again. He also painted doors, including 1 louvre door & did an excellent job. We had paint they no longer make; he suggested white, a perfectly elegant choice.

What a wonderful experience. Serrato Painting did the most amazing job. They were prompt right from the beginning. I was nervous because I needed painting on a lot of patches. I was concerned about everything blending properly. Luis went above and beyond. He’s a very precise painter. He matched the colors to perfection. They are neat and they leave everything cleaned up. He is efficient. I would trust Luis to paint my whole house.
