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 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 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.

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.

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.

Cesar and team did a fantastic job in a very short amount of time. I had work that needed to be done rather quickly and Cesar organized his team right away to ensure he met my timeline. He was professional, very honest and the work is top notch. Cesar stands by his work and made sure that I was completely happy with everything. I would highly recommend Cesar Torres for any of your painting needs, they did an exceptional job, I would have given over 5 stars if allowed.

long story short.. this man (LOREN) is money hungry & comes off as a fraud. I just needed my bedframe repainted. The only pro was, he priced that at $300 and was willing to take $250. I had to pay a deposit first of $150 so i did. anyway, we scheduled for Tuesday morning at 10am. Then, he suddenly moved it to 11:30am as i had to text him first. If i never texted him, i would’ve never knew. Then he moved it to 2pm. At this point, this was a huge inconvenience as i just moved to LA & had to miss work because i couldn’t let him & his “crew” paint, while i wasn’t there. THEN.. he moved it to 4pm which was a mess at this point. I received a phone call stating “he was outside” but it wasn’t even him. It was a man, who he later stated is his “employee” but really is his business partner. That sweet man confirmed he was his business partner. He was so nice and i don’t know why LOREN downplays his position. Loren cones of skeptical like it’s very weird. Anyway, Loren “ employee” was even baffled how unorganized he was! He arrived not knowing what he had to paint because Loren never told him then informed me that he couldn’t even paint my bed, due to lack of appropriate items he needed to use for the task! He then called Loren and Loren tells him he’s going to call me.. knowing he (Loren) looked unprofessional and IS wrong. At this point i cried and called Loren, urging him to refund me in a nice tone. I honestly should’ve cursed him out from the start, but as a woman of God.. I’ve remained calm. He said ok and we hunged up. Before his “employee” left, I did inform his “employee” I’ll directly pay him instead since he was so nice and I was desperate to get my bed repainted but i changed my mind because i was over this whole situation. I stored his “employee” number just in case though, since he was so professional. More professional than Loren. So I just threw away my bedframe. Anyway.. Hours went by & he still NEVER refunded me. I’ve patiently waited then “TRIPLE TEXTED HIM” to beg for my own MONEY back. He kept saying, “ I’m going to call you.” I just knew he was up to B/S. He ends up calling me and states, “ Hey Mimi. Sorry about today. i promise I’ll get the job done this time tomorrow” like huh? I asked for my refund and you proceed to ignore that and think there’s still business going on after all this? You’re crazy. I’ve immediately tell him nicely, “No. Just give my full refund of deposit please.” He proceeds to make he feel uncomfortable and literally harass me to say yes so he can still get paid to do the job. He wouldn’t take NO FOR NO. As a black woman, I’ve felt SO walked over & disrespected. I proceed to finally yell at him until he realized, he had no choice but to refund me. So he finally did. I ended up buying paint that he wanted me to buy as well... but he refused to refund the paint lol he states “because he already had his employee buy the paint” lol what a liar. This “business of his” is unprofessional. May God bless him. Please be careful before booking him!
