Michael's Discount Painting, painted the complete exterior of my home, he also painted much of the interior. I had high expectations and I wanted someone that would do quality work. Even with my high expectations, he exceeded them. He was very thorough, detailed, easy to communicate with, he understood what I was looking for in this project. I will use him again, and I will refer him to everyone I know. He gets the job done on time, on budget and with the quality that is hard to find these days. There is no question in my mind on who to use for any painting project that I have. I highly recommend Michael's Discount Painting you will not be disapointed!

I had a small exterior job to refresh some aged paint on the soffit and fascia of my home. The project unfortunately coincided with the summer heat but Cisco and his crew carried on like troopers. Everyone from 5 Star Painting was professional throughout the entire project and the finished product was terrific! I am impressed with the company and I highly recommend their services.

These guys are awesome! I sent out 10 estimates on yelp and they were half the price and did a fabulous job painting the entire interior of my home! John, the owner is very personable and doesn’t try to overcharge her oversell. He came and walked the premises and stayed with his same estimate he gave me initially. They had my house done within three days, their team is meticulous! So many companies are unreliable these days and these guys are not! I highly recommend their services for anyone needing a big job done in a short amount of time!! Super stoked!

We had water damage, a bizarre whole-ceiling light fixture a la 70s, damaged linoleum flooring, 1/4-1/2” brown grout lines. & more. Jason fixed it all beautifully, demoing, drywalling, painting, tiling, cleaning, & painting more. His work is impeccable, he is very neat, & he did it all in about 5 days. He was helpful when we ran into plumbing issues, & when asked to add on random details like replacing damaged casing, painting the grout (eco-friendly), & helping with the ceiling fan, he was obliging.

We are currently working with Ghiasi Designsand it’s been an amazing experience so far! Arash has done it for over 20 years, so anything from furniture selection and materials selection, he has been on point, not jeopardizing our own style but at the same time elevating us to another level of existence and challenging to truly transform life along with transforming space. Very patient, honest, and fun and easy to work with. People were very impressed with our choice of designer and his selections everywhere I went with him or taking his samples and our house is coming together beautifully. I am managing renovations myself and he has been tremendously helpful, kind and patient but honest when it comes to my questions of choices, placements. Although our contract was for design and furniture, not project management, when he kindly offered one of his subcontractors to me when I needed extensive lighting work in my house , I had a glimpse of the quality and a value that he could bring to the turn key and project managemebt contracts. Even during our initial phone consultation and then first fade to face meeting/2 hrs consultation I was impressed with how intuitive and sensitive Arash is to the needs of the client and also space solutions. We have eventually listened to most of his initial advice and the one I didn’t listen to, I looked back and thought: I should have listened. So if you hire Ghiasi Designs for your project, submit to his creative genius and enjoy the process!

If you want value for your money with a service and professionalism on the side, you have to hire Mancillas Painting. Rudy runs this club and he manages his projects well. Work Quality was great. Professionalism is outstanding. Responsiveness is like The Flash. The value is invaluable. And punctuality was on point. First day on the job Rudy had 8 guys helping to prep the rooms to paint! As the days went by he needed less and was able to complete the job ahead of schedule. I asked him for a couple small things that wasn't quoted and he was able to oblige. Upon completion of the project, he and his team cleaned up very nicely after themselves and did a final walk through. I do appreciate his skills and have already planned on using his team to paint my exterior next year!!! Thanks Rudy and team Ronald

Abraham is such a great person! He met me when promised and quickly scoped my project and gave me a fair quote. I had flooding and needed drywall, baseboard and re-painting done. Abraham matched the color or paint for my home perfectly. He went out of his way to find the unique baseboard in my home and made my house look great again! I was so impressed with Abraham that I also had him replace my garbage disposal which he also executed perfectly. I had written the check for a $100 more on accident and he followed up with me because he noticed my mistake and wanted to return the cash. He is a great person and talented at any home improvement job!

I found Chris when I was given one of his fliers by a friend who raved about his work. I only deal with licensed contractors, since I've been burned before and there's little recourse when they disappear or change their phone#, plus eventually I have a lot of work I want to get done and I want it all legit in case I need permits,etc... And licenses tell me a person has made the effort to put his time in, learn a trade, and become licensed. It's cost me more money to fix things that have been done sub-par over the years. The paint on my house trim was peeling and I could see the wood was becoming damaged in some areas, which means more money to fix rotted wood, so I was anxious to get the exterior paint done. I shopped around. Chris gave me a fair estimate, plus he was confident in his work and I saw the results at my neighbor's house. I loved that he was very respectful of my house, my yard, clean up, and his work was so clean! He gave me a head's up that some of the wood may be more damaged once he sanded the old paint. He showed me the damaged wood and gave me the option to fix it or not, which of course needed to be done. He replaced some old window sills and window frames. You can't even tell which ones he replaced! Everything matches the other windows! I couldn't be more pleased. After a few weeks I saved some money and was still so excited about the outside of my house finally getting done right that I decided to get some work done in the bathroom. My house is 90 yrs old, the interior walls have plaster not drywall, which many guys don't want to touch, but Chris said "No problem!" it's one of his specialities. He explained what's involved, wrote an estimate, and now I've got one bathroom done and it looks AWESOME! My husband is impressed. We're going to have a dinner party with friends to celebrate. Chris is a solid guy with good old fashioned work ethic. We have only great things to say about his work! After the new year we're going to save money and have a deck built so my husband can barbecue outdoors. Thumbs up times a hundred!

Steve did an amazing job on painting a room and bathroom for us. He was prompt to give us a fair bid, was able to do the work in a timely manner and is very professional. His work is top notch, he paints with clean lines and he cleans everything up nicely. I am planning to hire him again for additional interior painting jobs. Loved working with him.

Raul is doing a great job of painting and touching up the interior of our house, and staining some cabinets. He is not satisfied until he finds a perfect color match. He takes a more critical view of his own work than we do, and fixes every little blemish.

Jose was such a pleasure to work with. He and his team were always on time, worked diligently, and were very respectful of the home. Jose always showed up to the job with a smile and was always prompt to respond to phone calls and messages if any issues arose. You can tell he has pride in his work and values great customer service. I’m extremely happy with Tilt Up Painting and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to update their kitchen or home with some new paint. I love my “new” kitchen and can’t stop staring at it!

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
