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.

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 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.

Should I pressure wash my house before painting?

Pressure washing your siding before painting is an efficient way to clean your house in preparation for receiving new paint. However, it must be done correctly to avoid causing water damage or damaging the siding itself. 

Depending on the PSI rating of your washer, you should stand far away enough from your house to avoid removing paint or etching into the siding itself. Also avoid injecting water behind the siding, which typically occurs when spraying upwards at a low angle. 

When in doubt, consider hiring a pressure washer near you before your painter paints your home’s exterior. Or, contact the best painters near you to see if they offer pressure washing services as well.

Reviews for Tempe exterior painters
Sophie b.
Contractor very responsive to review work and provide quote for exterior painting job. Work started on time. Dunn Edwards paint paper samples from pallets did not translate well into real colors, there was a need to choose exterior trim color three times. Contractor did not do any of the painting, used a pro painters who worked very hard. Overall paint results estimate 9 out of 10. Three stars overall for the following reasons: 1) Contractor rushed to finish the job at the end of day 3. Left numerous paint spots and a couple of overspray areas, as well as masking material on roof. 2) Dumped paint job debris in our alley trashcan and our recycle bin when it should have been carted off . 3) Instead of confirming new exterior trim colors by buying small sample, contractor purchased full compliant of paint and at the end of the job expected us to pay for 6 extra gallons of paint we will never use. Overall a good result.

We asked Eddie to paint one side of our house and we couldn't be happier. He did a fantastic job matching the paint and painting our house. We called him 4 days ago and he was able to fit us in his schedule right away. We will definitely call him again for exterior or interior paint jobs in the future! Very professional and punctual too!

I had paint peeling all the way around the base of the house due to moisture damage. Dario provided a favorable quote and showed up when he said he would to do the job. Dario pulled the rock back and laid paper to catch the debris. He cleaned up after himself as he worked and was very neat in spite of the messy job of scraping off paint. He scraped all the loose paint clean and then pressure washed the area. He then sealed the concrete and finished the job with a fresh coat of paint. There were several areas on the front of the house, which were textured that he had to fill in with concrete patch and re-texture. Dario told me he could do the job right. And he exceeded my expectations, so he won my trust. He says he can also re-stain our kitchen cabinets to meet my wife's expectations. I believe he can, so we are waiting for his quote. I'll review him on that job if he wins the bid. For now, he is highly recommended for any exterior wall repair and any paint job.
