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.

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.

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.

Guys from big League painting did a fantastic job painting our cabinets. They really care about quality of the work. They were thoroughly professional and very affordable. They finished the work in estimated time and cleaned up after themselves. If you are thinking about getting a paint job done, don't hesitate to hire them. We would be calling them for any of our future paint work.

Diego did an amazing job painting the interior of our home. We have 4 bedrooms, living room, dining, kitchen, and hall/stairwell painted. In addition, we also had our kitchen cabinets painted and handles placed on the cabinet doors/ drawers. Diego is a very skilled painter; he's detailed and thorough, he listened to what we wanted and he followed through.

Solid experience with Dominguez Painting. I contracted with them to paint my garage through Thumbtack and was very pleased with the service. Quote was provided relatively quickly and then an in-person estimate was provided a day later that was very reasonable. Job was completed 2 days after that. Extremely efficient and effective job done and I am very happy with the results.

The painting job was well done. Since he is also a handyman, we had him work on other jobs around the house which was very useful.

I hired Dominguez painting to come in and repaint my bedroom and master bath. What a difference after they had completed the job! From start to finish, they were so pleasant to work with and professional. They answered all of my questions and gave me a great rate. They were punctual and they came in did the work and were done in no time at all. I have a couple of more projects to be done and I will definitely be hiring Dominguez painting again. The quality of work is top notch! Thanks so much!!

Gerald and his team completed an interior painting of the property we are putting out for a sales - he was very easy to work with, always on time, and most of all did a great job cleaning up all mess & giving a new life to the house. I will definitely work again with him for any upcoming projects.

Anthony and his worker were very quick in responding to us. We needed to finish up our house and furniture that needed painting and they did an excellent job. They cleaned up nicely and actually left our place better than it started. I would definitely hire them for any future jobs.

I hired Mauricio for bedroom and bathroom wall painting. Mauricio is honest, diligent and professional. He completes his job with a pride. Removing wallpaper in my bathroom turned out to be a quite tedious job, but he and his team was very patient and through. I am very happy with the outcome. I'll definitely hire him again!

Alex was punctual including from the time he arrived for the inspection and quote. He is a hard and diligent worker who I would highly recommend. Alex painted several rooms in my house, I told him what I needed and he began to work and did not stop until he was finished. Again, I highly recommend him.

Jose was a perfectionist who not only did a great job painting our cabinets and interior house, he also helped guide us to make the best decisions for our unique situation. Jose was very flexible and made the entire process easy. I honestly can't wait to use him for my next project and we will definitely refer him to everyone we know.
