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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Mr. Scott was great. He is knowledgeable, kind & competent. He repaired the hole in my garage, made a good suggestion about paint color and did a fine job painting the garage interior. I will hire JS Painting again.

Alfredo was wonderful! We needed to paint our home fast and couldn’t have asked for a better person to take on the hefty task. He did so much, not only the paint but the pressure washing and replacing our rotten fascia boards as well. He was punctual and kind and kept us in the loop the entire time. I highly recommend him and his team and will hire him again for any of our future painting needs. Thanks a ton!

Mario is a very experienced and hard working painter. He and Diego did a great job painting my vaulted ceilings. They were very efficient and finished earlier than expected so I even got a discount off of their original bid. I would definitely recommend Marz painting.

Very happy with the final results. A good value and they are coming back to do a few spot touch ups that we noticed after the paint dried.

Kurt was great to work with. Showed up on time. He did a touch up job for me. 3 bedrooms/front den/living room/kitchen & hallways. Matched the color perfectly blending in the old Sherwin Williams flat paint with new Kelly Moore low sheen paint. Reliable & honest. I would definitely recommend him and I will keep his information as a reference in the future. Thanks Kurt!

Jeff and Paul are amazing! We needed our entertainment center and closet doors painted and they did an excellent job. They took time to make sure everything was done correctly and did not leave until everything was perfectly painted, put together, and cleaned up. The quality of their work really shows. They were easy to work with, showed up everyday with positive attitudes, and offered a reasonable price for their services. We will definitely be using them again!

James was amazing. We just purchased our 1st home and it was in desperate need of a full exterior paint job. James and his crew got to work right away. His attention to detail shows in all steps of the process. He made sure we were all set up. He replaced weather stripping, cut back some shrubbery, painted exterior doors that we didn't even think to paint, replaced a peep hole, mounted some exterior lights(These are all things you would not expect of a painter) His pricing was very competitive, and he did not skip out on proper prep work and masking. We would hire James again without any hesitation.

Jacob and his team performed beautifully. After another painter failed to show in the morning of my project, Jacob responded to my call in the morning and began painting at my house by early afternoon. Super work!

I contacted over 5 different painters off of Thumbtack. Journey was quick to answer, Gave me a quick and reasonable Price. Hired him the next day. I needed to get exterior paint finished before I left. He made sure to get everything done on time. There were cracks on the wall outside. He sealed them well, He also did all the exterior outside, Garage paint inside, and ceilings. Everything went smooth, always came on time, and he made sure to get everything completed. Usually, painters that I've hired before will leave small extra unfinished work. Not with Journey. Love his Work.

I originally contacted Osbaldo for a bid on painting and I ended up hiring him for the job plus some! He painted the whole interior of our home, replaced our counter tops with granite, replaced our kitchen sink, and put up our beautiful backsplash in the kitchen. I can't thank him enough for working with my crazy schedule and for doing such a great job. He's very trustworthy, respectful, hardworking, takes pride in his work, and his quotes are very reasonable. He also communicated well from the beginning and that's one of the reasons why I hired him in the first place. I'll definitely be calling him for our future home renovations!

Besides the affordability, the pro had provided a thorough and honest offer from the get-go. I was willing to take a risk with someone new to the site, transparent enough to justify the low cost to build up customers & reviews. Kyle included photos of past work & experience doing exactly the kind of project I needed for my house. He was punctual, respectful of our home, and a perfectionist at his craft -- every inch of my house covered beautifully with the exact paint I wanted, down to every trim specification. My exterior looks amazing! I would highly recommend Kyle's House Painting to anyone looking to get a fresh coat on their exterior property.
