Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How often should you paint your house's exterior?

Expert opinion is mixed, but the general range is five to 10 years. However, this depends on many factors. Houses in harsh climates with extreme temperatures, lots of dust or ice or intense sunlight may need more frequent paint jobs than those in temperate climates. Also, wood houses will need new paint more often due to the changes within the wood itself. You should also consider painting the outside of your house if you plan to sell it.

What is the best exterior house paint?

Acrylic paints are generally considered good options for today’s home exterior paint jobs. You can also choose an oil-based or latex (water-based) paint. Also, look into specialty paints for your doors, roof, gutters, siding and other exterior surfaces.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

What colors should I paint my house exterior?

You have many options when it comes to paint colors. For example, an off-white creates a traditional look, and it looks great with a bright door to contrast it. Yellow is a happy color that, while light blue is reminiscent of an oceanfront style. Gray houses are also on trend, providing a classy and neutral tone that remains warm and inviting.

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.

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.

Is it worth it to hire a painter to paint my house's exterior?

It is nearly always worth it to hire a painter to paint your home’s exterior. While you may feel comfortable painting a small, one-story home, anything with multiple stories, dormers or other complexities are best left to a pro.

Additionally, it’s best to let the pros handle older homes. Any time extensive prep work is needed — such as repairing chipping, bubbling, cracking or peeling paint, or fixing caulking and substrate issues — a pro can  handle it.

Can I paint my own house exterior?

While you may choose to paint a door, ground-level window trim and other parts of your house’s exterior, it’s really a job best left to the professionals. One of the main reasons is experience. An experienced painter knows how to handle the prep work, spot problems and identify sources of future trouble, all while getting the job done more efficiently. They are also experienced with spending long hours on tall ladders. If you want high-quality work, it’s best to hire a professional painter near you

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.

Very impressed and happy with the paint job by Lupe and his crew. I had a complete exterior paint job done including my block walls and everything was done with care and quality. They took the time to make sure everything was properly taped off and protected and did a great job painting, even in the wind. Thank you very much.

J & J Painting did a beautiful job! They responded immediately to my inquiry, came the next morning and provided an extremely fair quote. I hired them on the spot to repaint the entire exterior of my house including re-finishing and painting my pergola structure, and they did an absolutely beautiful job! I would strongly recommend them to anyone!

Eddie is extremely professional. He responded quickly with his quote. We had a change in what we originally wanted, and Eddie responded immediately with a new quote. The job was started and completed within the time frame that he stated. We had the entire exterior of our home painted, and the workmanship was excellent. Any future painting needs that we have, we will definitely use Eddie again.

A relatively small paint job - 168 feet of an exterior patio. He was the first, and only of 9 Thumbtack possible painters who actually gave me a quote based on the picture and measurements I'd provided. The other eight wanted a phone call, and I don't have time for that. His initial quote seemed reasonable. Then I asked him to get the paint which has the chemicals in it so that walking on it in the summer wouldn't feel like walking on coals. Not cheap paint, two gallons for two coats = $100. In all, from request to job being done was three days, and very reasonable. He is easy to work with. He did what he said he would do, was timely, and all for a good price. I would use him again.

Roger, Omar (aka Oscar) and Jesus (all brothers) were delightful, proficient, and clearly talented, dedicated professional painters. Great attention to details & utmost customer satisfaction evident immediately. I could not be happier with the finished product of my home exterior. Best paint job I’ve had in 40 years AND definitely not the most expensive. Again I thank you all for great job, but especially you Roger for your hard work!
