Michael and his team did a great job at our new condo. Completely painted it from floor board to ceiling. He took off the popcorn and texted the ceiling. Painted on the cabinets and doors. I mean these guys made our place look brand new. Thanks a lot Michael's discount painting, a job well done!

Keith and his helper were on time and very professional. They did a fantastic job pressure washing. My house looks like it has a fresh coat of paint! I am even having them back to help with a small cosmetic change to the front of my house. I would def recommend this crew!

If I could select 5 areas instead of just 3 that I liked about Dave, I would! If you have the opportunity to hire Dave, consider yourself lucky. You’ll feel completely at ease that your project will happen on time and on budget with good communication. And having been a builder hiring and managing contractors for some 10 years on and off...this kind of contractor is rare. I first hired Dave to install the 22 windows in my new construction project. That went extremely well. Then I hired him to paint the house. I wasn’t ready as scheduled and he handled it professionally with understanding. We started 2 days later and he hit it hard. Then I hired him to complete the drywall, mud and tape for 1000sf. Those walls are perfectly smooth...no texture...straight corners. Then he tiled a bathroom with 2’ x 6” tiles and adjoining pebble stone mesh tile. IT IS PERFECT. When the last task was taking longer than expected, Dave’s wife and son jumped in and worked until 11pm to finish when promised. As I say, if you’re reading this then count yourself lucky to have happened across Dave.

Prompt / on-time as scheduled. Very impressed with the overall job of painting the room in two tones, along with the closet. Turned out great, as highly expected. Antonio worked at a good pace, while maintaining efficiency. His honesty and professionalism is highly admired. He was well prepared for the job. Will recommend him to others.

I originally called on DM Painting because I needed a small job done at one of the properties we manage. Donaldo came over to see the job and gave me an estimate. He was timely, polite and professional and when he returned to do the job the work was very well done. Since that first job I've hired DM Painting for several other jobs at different properties of ours and I couldn't be happier. His pricing is fair and Donaldo always makes an effort to correct any minor blemishes or touch ups that might have accidentally been overlooked. I highly recommend DM Painting and Donaldo and his crew. - Marc MG Real Estate Management Co.

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.

There are 5 different categories that Thumbtack is asking for feedback on: Work Quality, Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value, and Punctuality. Mancillas Painting is run by the name of Rudy Mancillas so my review will detail his delivery on the 5 different categories. Puncuality: On the initial quote visit he was on time. After he left, i did have to remind him twice to send me the quote. However, when we set the date to start he quoted 2 days job and start at 7. Both days he was on time and made alot of progress the first day staying till 5 pm!!! Value: I received 4 different quotes for the job. Mancillas came at a great price. 3 from Thumbtack and a off the books contractor. Rudy came in, quoted, and stuck by his numbers even with some extra requests and requirements on the fly!!! Much appreciated. Responsivess: It's very important that a contractor is reachable before, during, and after the job. Things can change during the whole ordeal and Rudy was responsive everytime I texted him for: confirmation, change request to the original, or other misc stuff, he was always responding! Professionalism: Professionalist and Honesty should be combined or Honesty can be it's own category. The biggest reason I chose Mancillas was because of his Professionalism on the initial visit and I felt like i trusted his honesty in the discussion for the job. During the whole project, he and his teams professionalism was superb!!! Always engaged, always confirming, and always communicating on the work to make sure i was always happy. Quality: This one is probably the most important, yes? At the end of the day, we pay someone to do quality work. Especially when it costs this much and the work is visible to everyone. The quality they provided excellent. At the end of the job, i found out that he does exterior painting and I have already chosen him to do the outside of my house next year!!! Thanks Rudy for the great work. Ronald

Edgar was great to work with. Very polite and professional. Did an outstanding job on my damaged (old house) plaster/lat interior wall which is no easy fix. He even did a few extra small repairs on adjacent walls and ceilings on the fly. The rooms were left spotless and time to complete the work was impressive. I would definitely hire SGP on my next job and you should too. Will (Ocean Beach)

I just had my entire house painted by Dan and I'm very happy with the work done. Dan and his crew are professional, courteous, punctual and do very professional and quality work. He is quick to respond to your phone calls and offers free in-home estimates to ensure your needs are met. Dan offers a wide variety of options and styles in painting your home, but there is never any pressure to up-sell you and his prices are more than fair and resonable. I'll continue to use Dan at A-Painting Company for all my future painting needs. Thank you Dan!!

Rudy was absolutely incredible! He was responsive, friendly, and most importantly: HONEST! He continued to ask me questions about my project to make sure he was providing the most accurate quote. He was able to squeeze me in within DAYS of providing me a quote and he arrived EARLY to look over the project once more. From there, he got started right away. I was extremely impressed with his quality of work and am so thankful for him and his service. He came to paint my fence and I was so impressed by his abilities, I hired him to come back and paint my whole house. If you have any painting project, Rudy is your guy! Trustworthy, reliable, professional and high quality work! 5 Stars!

Jose quickly got a job done in my house that I was unable to do myself. He showed up promptly at the specified time. And his charge was very reasonable. I will call him again the next time I have a repair job I'm unable to do.

Daniel did an awesome job painting my bathroom, changing out outlet/switches, replacing doorknob and installing towel racks. He kept in touch with me and let me know when he was coming. I so appreciate Daniel completing the job so quickly and leaving the bathroom cleaner than he found it.

Javier did a really nice job on painting our backyard fence, side fence and flower box. He was very responsive online and gave me a quote in advance. He also responded to my questions regarding the type of paint to get in advance. He took great care of my yard and left my plants in perfect condition. I definitely recommend him and will hire him again.

The owner of Rios Custom Carpentry, Erik, was very courteous & knowledgeable in what my husband & I wanted done, which was repainting our backyard shed's roof, repainting one of our bathrooms' vanity & medicine cabinet, & repainting the master bedroom's bathroom ceiling this past month (March of 2018). Since he did an excellent job on those projects, we re-hired him to repaint all of the doors & door frames inside our house!

Juan and his team did a fantastic job painting the exterior of our house and the interior. We had a very aggressive timeline to get everything done before we moved into the house and Juan made sure everything was done on time and got a few extra rooms painted as well! He had a very fair price and he and his team were very respectful and professional while at the house. We will definitely use Juan and his team again and highly recommend him!

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
