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.

We had a last minute paint job needed on a new home and The Best Painters came in and saved the day!! They worked so hard to get all of our interior paint (walls and baseboards) completed before the movers showed up and even managed to paint some complicated ceiling beams. We were so impressed with their speed and the interior looks stunning. Very happy with the work they did and will definitely be using them in the future.

Quite simply, Albert saved the day! We underestimated our interior painting plan and realized we needed an expert, quick! Within 10 minutes of posting my project, Albert responded. I reviewed his profile and was skeptical with how good his reviews were, but it's true -- he and his crew are TOP notch. 5 stars ***** Friendly, asked great questions, timely, and detail oriented. He displayed great knowledge of interior painting...basically, he IS a painting professional. Would hire him in a heart beat if needed.

Brian painted our entire 1400 sq foot house, ceiling, interior doors and garage. He did an awesome job, cleaned up after himself every day and at the end of the job, places where the paint dried weird, Brian was more than happy to redo it so I was happy. Our house looks amazing! I would highly recommend Brian.

Quality Painting completed multiple projects on the home I own in Scottsdale. These included: Complete exterior house painting, interior painting and several woodwork repairs. Daniel provided a competitive bid, purchased all paint and materials, and completed the project on time, and within budget. They were extremely professional, and went above and beyond my expectations. Daniel even took my screens to have them replaced and picked them up to install them! We will definitely hire them again. They did a fantastic job, and the house looks great! I have absolutely no reservations in recommending them.

Hired Finesse for interior painting of the whole house. I was disappointed when the job took longer than quoted and it disrupted the entire schedule of other work to be completed prior to our move in. Had to have the house cleaned again and just heard today from a neighbor that they dumped paint? on their property. Got tired of hearing excuses and how they weren't making $ on the job (their quote was close to other two I received). They left equipment and all the empty paint containers for us to deal with. I would not hire them again.

Hired Lupe and his team for my interior/exterior painting job...while at first I was a bit skeptical because the job got started a bit slow they really made up for it at the end. I am extremely happy with the amount of quality they put into their work...making sure that I was happy with each and every piece they finished. I would recommend these guys for literally any painting project and will be referring anyone I know to them as it's hard to find such trustworthy professionals!

The quality of work was high and I would easily hire them again. You can be confident with hiring Alex and team to perform your painting work.

Great service and work quality. Nate responded pretty quickly and gave me a reasonable quote. He explained me the options that could work best for me as I had few patches on my wall and did not wanted to go with whole interior painting. He got the job done pretty well for what I wanted in a reasonable time.
