Lifesaver! Steve was professional and punctual. The custom paint job looks awesome! Not only does it look amazing, but he was super efficient, too! He was very accommodating to my crazy schedule and so nice! He's a man of integrity and is fair in his prices. He helped me out on some other repairs around the house and we are already scheduling a second project! Super excited. Thanks so much, Steve! Can't wait to start on that fireplace!

I am very happy with Whitestone and the window cleaning and painting services they provided me. They were very professional. I believe they went above and beyond to make a very stressfull painting situation less stressful by their kindness, patience and helpfulness. I would highly recommend them to anyone that was in need of any type of services that they give. Helen, Carlos and Luis were the ones that I had personal contact with and they were very polite and helpful. I appreciate their customer care and concern. I will use them again in the future because I believe they are a company with integrity. Everything they said they would do they fulfilled.

Bill arrived promptly, well-prepared to complete cleaning 1000+ sg ft of carpeting. Courteous, professional, and focused, Bill cleaned the carpet beautifully, removing stains I thought were permanent. Bill's prices are reasonable, and his work is exceptional. He earned my highest recommendation; I will certainly hire Bill again and refer my friends to him. Outstanding. Thanks, Bill.

Chris painted the exterior of our 2000 sq. ft. two story house in Bakersfield in May of 2015. He did a wonderful job with the preparation and painting over a period of almost two weeks. He was very meticulous; we are thoroughly pleased with his work! If you would like to see our house, contact us at and we'll arrange a time to see the finished product. A big plus in having Chris take on such a major job is the ease of working with him. His primary objective is to make sure the homeowner is totally pleased.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 $200 to $2,500. 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 does a painter charge per room?

The cost to paint a room will vary based on the size of the room, the type of paint you select, any ceiling or trim work needed, and any repairs needed. If no repairs or other additional work is needed, painting a room with contractor-grade paint could range from $1 to $2 per square foot, including materials. Selecting a luxury paint (some cost more than $100 per gallon) will certainly increase your house painting costs. Here are some additional examples of average house painting costs, per room:

  • 12x12 room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 12x12 room with an 8-foot ceiling: about $100
  • 14x16 master bedroom with a 9-foot ceiling: about $150
  • 14x16 master bedroom with an 8-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 16x16 living room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $175
  • 16x16 living room with a 20-foot ceiling: starting at $225

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost for an interior painter ranges between $450 and $900. 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.
