Sergey was excellent. He was the lowest cost estimate we received, and he went above and beyond to provide great service (ontime, polite, flexible with extra requests). Clearly very knowledgeable, he quickly installed 3 overhead light fixtures (which included sanding one fixture to make it fit) and multiple dimmer switches. I would highly recommend him and hire him again. Thank you!

Harp and his team helped us take 2 adjacent dark closets and turn them into a single larger room that we’ll eventually transform into an office space. They removed boards that were on top of windows, knocked down the dividing wall and shelves, and patched things up so that they’re ready to paint. Same day service is no joke. I contacted Harp yesterday, we FaceTimed to show him the space, and he showed up today with his crew and completed the job in 4 hours. Couldn’t be happier to get this done so quickly. If you’ve got a project you’ve been thinking about, dive in with Harp and crew. They make it easy to take it one step at a time.

Brian and Sonny were fast, efficient, and incredibly helpful in completing tasks needed to prepare for a whole house interior painting. They removed multiple light fixtures and towel racks, a wall hutch and panel, fireplace mantel, and helped moved some heavy items in prep for the painters. Really easy to communicate with Brian, I would absolutely work with him again.

I needed some paint and other hauling. I decided at the same time I would get a new kitchen faucet installed. Every aspect was flawless and pleasant. Good communication, fast response, first rate work, and a fraction of the price of others. I will use for my other handyman needs.

Ever responded to my post for a time sensitive painting job very quickly, allowing me to give an overview of the work we needed done and get an idea of the cost right away. After a job walk that same night, we firmed up the quote and work was complete 2 days later! We live in an older flat, and the ceiling and walls needs a few crack repairs, which were done very well, smoothing out the lines and unevenness where it was needed most. The paint was done in 2 coats, which looks great. Also, we had done (and said we'd do) most of the wall hanging removal and decluttering of walls, but Ever and his crew were able to scoot away the big stuff and cover up furniture and surfaces, then put everything back / clean up well after the job was complete. Ever pretty much saved the day by coming through so quickly and doing such a great job. In terms of the price, we paid pretty much exactly what I'd expected for the job. I maybe could have gotten it done for a tiny bit less if I'd consulted with multiple contractors or haggled on price, but we had lost a couple of weeks going back and forth with a flaky contractor, and with Ever's help we are back on track with our design deadlines and beating the clock before we host relatives in our home for the holidays. It was all worth it and a quality job. Big thanks to Ever Molina painting!

Milko did a fantastic job on painting the interior of our house. He provided everything that we needed, worked very carefully and efficiently got the job done in only a days. He was pleasant, responsive, on time, and very reliable - even coming back after a few weeks to do any follow on touch ups that we requested. I’d highly recommend for any paint work and consider for other jobs as well!

I hired Mauricio to paint a single interior wall in an office building. He did a great job, and came by a day early to confirm the color choice. He was very professional and was easy to communicate with via text (we all know its the easiest way). I highly recommend Mauricio!

Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.

Eduardo and Jose were phenomenal, period. They painted our home in the Inner Sunset, and did a spectacular job. I am a very picky diva, and I am so very happy - thrilled - with their work. Eduardo and Jose sourced the scaffolding and even found us a roofer on very short notice when we agreed the roofing over our bay windows was in very poor condition. There were things I wanted - color and paint type and finish type - and Jose collaborated with me on everything. He did not hesitate to explain some technical elements of which I was unaware. I have had a lot of experience with painters, and I am adamant about using Benjamin Moore paint only. I have had instances where the painters swap in cheap paint even though I have specified exactly what I want. (It is absolutely imperative to use high quality paint or one is simply wasting money on labor.) Well, Eduardo and Jose are also firm believers in Benjamin Moore products, so it was a very happy collaboration!! Everything was very reasonable priced and transparent. The prep work was outstanding. This is a highly professional team, but also very friendly. Do not hesitate to hire them! I plan to ask for more services in the future! See photos below, the tan and brown on the left is the before photo, the photo on the right in pearl grey, deep brown, and blue lake is the after photo. The photos really do not do the house justice... the lustre and richness of the new paint over properly prepared surfaces - it is just gorgeous. Thank you so much, Eduardo and Jose!

Jerry did a great job repairing a broken sprinkler pipe in my lawn. He contacted me soon after I posted on Thumbtack, came by and quoted the job, then showed up when he said he would to do the work. The area where the work was done was left clean and the system once again works great. I highly recommend All Season for any type of lawn care or landscaping work.

My first try at Thumbtack so I was a little nervous and unsure what to expect. But I couldn’t be happier with Mr. Gutierrez who was responsive to my request, professional, reliable, and an absolute expert electrician. He worked quickly, had all of the necessary equipment and tools, and was extremely courteous and pleasant. He kept everything clean and tidy and that was important in my bedroom. I have +100% confidence in Mr. Gutierrez!

Marie did a quality job at a fair price. She was also really easy to work with. She had a clear pricing structure, she communicated regularly throughout the process, matched and purchased paint and materials, and had a great attitude. I was really nervous to have someone in my home whom I never met, but Marie was really great and trustworthy. Highly recommended!

We contacted Mike on Monday, he came to give us an estimate on Tuesday, and the job was done by the next Tuesday. Not only was he fast and flexible on timing, he was a pleasure to work with and the paint job was absolutely top notch. We could not be happier with Mike and his team and the job they did painting our apartment.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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
