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.

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 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.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

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.

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.

He was very careful with paint and took his time which didn’t take long at all. Gave me advice on how much paint to purchase. My walls came out great. Will book again!

Johnny did an excellent job painting our living room for a makeover! He didn't get paint on my furniture or floor. And he washed my windows to boot! I'll be hiring him again for a future project.

Donaldo came out with 2 other men to paint our downstairs, stairwell and hallway. He gave me a good quote for the job. He came out Monday for the estimate and they started work on Tuesday. They did an excellent job. They even painted the trim and the door leading to the garage. I will definitely call them again when it's time to paint my upstairs rooms.

Really happy with the service from Rudy. We didn't have the time to finish painting and were sick of having a half painted home. Mancillas Painting responded to us right away and we set up a time within a day or two for them to come give us an estimate on our entryway, hallway, and bathrooms. They did an excellent job and we are happy with the finished results! We would definitely recommend their services to anyone!

Johnny O is "your man" for as good a paint job as you will probably ever get. He painted the cabinets and walls in two baths, door frames, two bedrooms and an office. Also did some touch up work on previously painted cabinets. He did a beautiful job. He is very neat and attends to details. Also he "does" exactly as he says he will. He calls when he says he will and he is "on time!" I would highly recommend him. Great price also! I am looking forward to my complimentary exterior window washing which comes with the painting. Kay

We hired DM Painting to finally paint our living room and dining room. We just met Donald and during our interview, felt the most comfortable with him among all the rest of the painters we interviewed. They were on time, got the job done earlier than scheduled and most of all, we were able to trust them to paint our home while we worked. They did an excellent job and we were very happy with the results. We will definitely use them again!

Eddie and his team did a really great job painting our interior of the entire first floor and parts of my second floor. Eddie and his team arrived on time and did the entire job (two coats) by end of day. I will use Eddie’s help for all of my future painting needs.

The job got done quickly, and in a timely manner. Our furniture and personal items however, were not covered at all on the first day they sprayed paint. They were both apologetic and cleaned the floor. But we are still finding fine mist of white paint on wires, glasses, and other items that were not covered during the spray.

Manuel and his assistant are great. We had some interior painting of a dining room, living room, hallways with high ceilings, and the ceiling. It took them about 7 hours to get it all done. Plus they touched up the ceiling left behind by our shotty work. They were fast, professional, and really nice. The price was reasonable and Manuel was very flexible. As painting progressed, I realized the ceiling should be done, Manuel was willing to add on the extra work for a reasonable price. I will definitely be using them again.

Johnny was simply the very best. He responded very quickly to my inquiry and provided a quote right away. He was extremely helpful in determining what needed to be done without trying to up-charge me for my ignorance. He was very fair in pricing. He will definitely continue to get my business and I will recommend him to anyone looking for painting. He came in quoted the job of painting several walls in my house of 4 hours. He was thorough and fast. Finished under 4 and the walls look amazing!!!! Thanks Johnny!
