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.

I highly recommend DJ'S Painting! Luis the owner is very professional and takes pride in his companies work. I had them paint my whole interior house along with my kitchen cabinets. Everything turned out perfect! The staff was extremely courteous. Omar was a pleasure, he was very responsive to all of my request. I have already recommended them to three friends and I will be hiring them to paint the exterior of my home. DJ'S Painting will not disappoint!

Menera Painting did an outstanding job painting my kitchen cabinets. They arrived each day at the stated time and completed the job within the time frame stated in the bid. I would absolutely recommend them for any painting job. I've already given their name to several people interested in having some work done.

Tim has been a great help on a mural project that was 1/2 way finished when he started. I needed someone to takeover the existing "ocean scene". He has been reliable, friendly, and professional. He is also very talented as an artist. He has painted birds, crabs, waves, trees, and flowers on my walls and ceiling. There is about 1 more day of painting left. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

We had an appointment set up for him to give us an estimate on painting the outside of our house. He never showed up, didn't email or call. It's been 5 days now.

Mike Cabe has done a great job for us. Our house in Folsom looks amazing. He took the extra time to explain all of the points of the painting project. He worked with us on the exact color of the paint and the look we were after. We had some wood damage on the trim and siding Mike was able to quote and repair these for us. Mike was always on time and finished the job as scheduled. He was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend his services to others. Thank you again Mike, Phil And Vicky Matheus

Rodney did an amazing job on the exterior of my house. He was very responsive and punctual and the price was much less than a number of other bids I got from other contractors. I'd recommend, and have already recommended, Rodney to anyone looking to have their house painted.

BP Painting was super easy to work with. They were prompt, friendly, helpful, clean and very customer focused. They understood my project was very budget sensitive and worked with me on figuring out how I could get the most bang for my buck. They even followed up with a phone call after to make sure I was pleased with the work.

Price was fair, response was fast. Downside, left several unpainted spots, didn’t mask so our wood floors have splatter around the entire house, light fixtures. Doesn’t cut with masking so it’s that soft line from your base to walls. Preference, but in a lot of areas just looks lazy and incomplete. I’ve got a high walk in the staircase that absolutely needed another coat. You see the white coming through the yellow he painted. A rail wall completely missed painting right in the middle about 1/4 of it. He took all the blinds down, then after saying he’d put them all back up left most of them down. A week later I’m still putting blinds back up and cleaning up after him. He won’t respond to my text since he got paid. Not confident I would use him again. Maybe in a pinch if I’m desperate. Just too many cut corners and seems to not care after the project to make anything right.

Tim was outstanding! I was so stressed out with the color of paint I chose. Tim helped me to not only chose a better suited color for my main living areas, after he started the job, but designed a custom color for me at NO charge that was absolutely gorgeous!! He took all the stress and anxiety away with not one complaint as to what a pain I must have been in dealing with. Most definitely a challenging customer. But he took on the challenge and was so pleasant with a professional demeanor and great personality. I would highly recommend him to anyone whether you have a discerning eye or are easily satisfied. Tim is the guy. Great on price, too! And he guarantees all his work. Give him a call. I know you will be more than pleased with the quality of workmanship, care and concern he displays on the job. Five stars all the way...and no, I do not know him from previously or am related in any way. Just very happy and impressed.
