WOW - I've had a lot of projects over the years, but this was my BEST experienced. Jose is a real professional with a great team. Quick to respond to needs. Excellent work and I mean excellent. Clean, quiet, professional... Jose responded quickly to my request, texted me when he was near arriving, gave me good advice on the quality of paint I needed and when I asked, he gave me his artist-like opinion. He doesn't only have quality work but he has a real eye for color in environment and cares about his work. I have already recommended him to three people and will use him again for painting but also have asked him to do some other projects that aren't painting because his team is so skilled in so many other areas too!

Michael and Michelle are a great team!Their painters were neat , polite and respectful.The exterior house paint job took less than a week and the pricing was the best I could find. We were looking to replace the front door after the paint job and Michael promised us that he will come back to paint the door after we had it installed! Talk about great customer service. Overall , his team did an excellent job for such a competitive price :)

She was on time and very very good. I would highly recommend. This was a very dirty home that had not been lived in for awhile so was a deep clean.

Eddie and his team of painters were highly professional and did a wonderful job painting the entire interior of my home in 2 days. They were always on time and worked non stop to complete the project on schedule. Their work ethic was second to none, and they did a beautiful job painting my home for a reasonable rate. I am so glad I hired Eddie, and I highly recommend his work.

I would recommend Antonio for painting! He was professional, fast and he paid attention to detail Plus, what I liked most, he cared about my reaction. He really wanted me to love the paint and finished product. I just bought a condo and I wanted it to be beautiful and that mattered to Antonio. He did a great job! Thank you Antonio!

We just purchased a new home that needs quite a bit of work. We found Matthew here on thumbtack and he was exteremly responsive so we planned a (free) consult for interior wall painting. He started and finished exactly on schedule and his work was excellent. As we continue to work on our home, I am certain we will be contctimg Matthew again.

As God is my witness you need to put your trust in Dean and Kim the Happy Painters. They did my home in Venitian a Plaster with accent walls and painted base boards. This Venitian Plaster process is just that, it's a process of troweling on 3-4 coats of plaster. Trust me, I thought I might tackle this job myself, however, after seeing what the process is, it would've taken me a year. I had 5 bids for this project and 3 people wouldn't even bid. Dean wasn't the cheapest but came across as the most competent and that's very important to me. The job came out great beyond my expectations. Dean will be posting pictures of this job for future prospects. I will help Deans customers with any questions they May have along with my cell number. If you want a quality job at a reasonable price then call Dean the Happy Painter.

Jason and is team were excellent to work with. Had a bad experience with another painter, Jason showed up on time with 8 guys to knock the job out and fix all the mistakes. The quality of his team's work is very good as well. Will definitely hire them again the first opportunity I get!

There are 5 different categories that Thumbtack is asking for feedback on: Work Quality, Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value, and Punctuality. Mancillas Painting is run by the name of Rudy Mancillas so my review will detail his delivery on the 5 different categories. Puncuality: On the initial quote visit he was on time. After he left, i did have to remind him twice to send me the quote. However, when we set the date to start he quoted 2 days job and start at 7. Both days he was on time and made alot of progress the first day staying till 5 pm!!! Value: I received 4 different quotes for the job. Mancillas came at a great price. 3 from Thumbtack and a off the books contractor. Rudy came in, quoted, and stuck by his numbers even with some extra requests and requirements on the fly!!! Much appreciated. Responsivess: It's very important that a contractor is reachable before, during, and after the job. Things can change during the whole ordeal and Rudy was responsive everytime I texted him for: confirmation, change request to the original, or other misc stuff, he was always responding! Professionalism: Professionalist and Honesty should be combined or Honesty can be it's own category. The biggest reason I chose Mancillas was because of his Professionalism on the initial visit and I felt like i trusted his honesty in the discussion for the job. During the whole project, he and his teams professionalism was superb!!! Always engaged, always confirming, and always communicating on the work to make sure i was always happy. Quality: This one is probably the most important, yes? At the end of the day, we pay someone to do quality work. Especially when it costs this much and the work is visible to everyone. The quality they provided excellent. At the end of the job, i found out that he does exterior painting and I have already chosen him to do the outside of my house next year!!! Thanks Rudy for the great work. Ronald

Daniel and his team were awesome! I posted on Thumbtack that I needed a last minute painter ASAP, and he responded about ten minutes after my post saying he could help. I then called him, and he said he could get someone from his team to come out first thing in the morning, which was exactly what I needed as I was scheduled to move out of my apartment that same day. I had already done two coats of paint on my own and definitely realized I needed a professional to finish up the job. The next morning, one of his guys showed up right on time and got the job done in a little over an hour. He was quick and did a fantastic job on my room! If I ever need a painter in the future, Daniel will definitely be the person I call!

Would highly recommend Mancillas Painting for any interior home project! Professional painters who made the entire process easy and painless for the homeowner. Able to fit the painting into my schedule quickly after the initial walk-through/estimate. Did an outstanding job on the new accent wall!

We found our handyman! He did an excellent job completing the tasks we have for him- even provided an affordable solution to a home aesthetic issue we have since we bought our house. Awesome multi-tasker, he knew how to prioritize work such that he did work that would take longest time first and was able to complete other tasks concurrently. Stephanie is very responsive and coordinated the project well.

This young man, Carlos, re-painted my San Diego home when we purchased it in 2013. He did a wonderful job and was very polite and professional throughout. We had several different colors in different rooms/areas and he did a fabulous job blending. We were eager to move in so punctuality was big for us, and he always arrived as scheduled (unlike our tile guy who was a nightmare). Finding a good painter was hard. Many residential painters flaked when we called for quotes. I'm so happy to see that he is actually a business owner now of his own Painting Company, because then he was working for someone else's house painting business at that time. Now we're looking to get some baseboards and our two bathroom cabinets painted and hoping he's available to provide services again. Highly recommend! Oh, and of the quotes we did get, he was by far the most competitive and affordable painter we met with.

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 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.

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
