Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost to hire an interior painter ranges between $200-$2,700. 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 get the outside of your house painted?

You can expect to pay around $2,535 to get the outside of your house painted, though this cost will increase with larger house sizes (and decrease with smaller ones). The average hourly rate for exterior painters is $45 and ranges from $25-$75.

Wood, brick, stucco, vinyl, aluminum and stone each have their own set of demands. Contact exterior painters near you to get a detailed cost estimate for your house.

How much should interior painting cost per square foot?

You can expect a 12x12-foot average room with 8-foot ceilings to cost $100 to paint, while a 16x16-foot room with 9-foot ceilings could cost around $175. 

To calculate the cost of interior painting per square foot, measure the square footage of wall space and ceiling space of your room. From this, you can estimate the number of gallons of paint needed to cover the wall space and compare it to these figures. You can also ask interior painters near you to provide an estimate before you hire them.

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 $917 (for one room) to $4,893 (for eight rooms). 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 interior painters charge per hour?

You can expect to pay $50 per hour for interior painting. This price will change depending on a number of factors and may range between $30 and $160 per hour. Some factors include the height of the rooms, the complexity of the painting and more.

For an accurate cost estimate, request quotes from local painters and contractors.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Novielli Painting was wonderful to work with. Their foreman Jesse and his crew did an outstanding job. My house looks great. They removed wallpaper, repaired drywall and painted every room. Great team. Great job. Great value. We’ll definitely use them for our next painting needs.

They were great! Painted exterior of my vintage home that needed some extra TLC and did a great job. Very accommodating with time frame, work scope, paint samples, etc——trustworthy, friendly, and cleaned up after themselves. I will definitely use them when I’m ready to paint interior. Thank you ValleyPro!

The painting was done efficiently, after they left I found a few places of overspray and there was a misunderstanding of an area painted that was supposed to be left alone. I will say that the overall opinion of the work done was satisfactory too good!

We agreed on a reasonable price and they did a great job. They responded quickly to paint a gable that got overlooked and were willing to work around my schedule when doors needed to be painted and left ajar to properly dry. The only fault was one experienced by another customer who noted they too had to sweep up after the job but it’s my house and I have to do that often enough anyway. I recommend their work and plan on calling them again when I need interior painting done.

I was very impressed with Schlemann Painting! They are very nice, professional, and detail oriented. The biggest job they did for me was painting a red-brick fireplace white, and it looks fabulous. They arrived promptly, did a fantastic job, were delightful to talk to, and cleaned up after themselves. I can't recommend them highly enough. :)

I hired Olmos Painting to paint the trimming and garage doors of my home. He was responsive and did an outstanding job. He kept the work area clean and finished in a very timely manner. I secured 3 quotes prior to securing him and he was reasonably priced and definitely worth the value! I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thanks again Danny!

Jeremiah is the man. He does quality work at a fair price and he's super friendly. He painted my awful, rusty shed and the pictures speak for themselves. Thanks!

Jeremiah and team did a fabulous job on my living and dining room in a historic home with lots of crown molding, sash windows and interior doors. He was very communicative, punctual, and friendly. I’m now having him do the ceilings in those rooms to match the lovely new paint job😊

It was very pleasant dealing with Frank and Sam. I got a good price and the job was done in good time. It appears to be a good-quality job. However, the painters did not clean up after themselves, leaving chips of paint on the roof of the porch and in the flower beds. I have also asked for a written receipt (a week ago) and still have not received it.

I feel really fortunate to have found Jeramiah. His work is excellent! I am super picky and he responded to my every little request, even changing the paint color I picked for several rooms. Jeramiah was not the least expensive painter I got estimates from but if you want perfectly clean lines, and someone who shows up on time ( he even got my house done early) and can do stucco work & repairs, he is your guy. I am beyond pleased with his work. I can't wait until my floors are down and he comes back to do the baseboards! I will hire him again for the exterior after I recover from this. ;) Thank you Jeramiah!
