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.

24 Hour Painting was excellent. We used them for a painting/patching of our existing Shed (wood siding). Very responsive and reasonable. Would use them again.

This review is for both the work provided and the coordination by Serviz, Inc. My request was for 2 rooms to be painted. I spoke with Serviz, Inc about needing to have the work done on a certain date and they assured me that the person would arrive on that date and be ready to paint. The day arrived and the guy was just there to look at the job and confirm the price, he had a full day of jobs to view and couldn't do the job until that night. He brought a friend but couldn't finish and had to come back the following day. Unfortunately their combined workmanship was disappointing. There was paint on my hardwood floors, paint splattered on doors and patches of no paint that were discovered after they left. I wouldn't use a service like Serviz again because I don't think they prepare the actual workers with the correct information and then the workers are left fixing the situation.

Would definitely hire for any of my painting needs! Nery was at the house right on time, and finished the paint job a lot faster than I expected, while still doing an amazing job. He cleaned up and fanned the rooms out afterword. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thanks, Nery!

Nelson painted my kitchen. He had to sand down some of the walls to smooth them out, he put new texture on the walls to match the current texture and was very careful not to get any paint on our new kitchen cabinets. Did a great job with taping around the cabinets.

I was amazed at the quality of work, how timely the crew was, the value and the professionalism. I highly recommend 24hr. painting to anyone who is in need of painting the interior of their home. I have heavy furniture and cats, and moving our items and working around the cats was not an issue. I wish Fredy and his crew much success!

I hired Nelson to paint our living room, with beamed ceilings and a lot of trim. His price was excellent. He was able to come a few days after I put my project up on thumbtack. He worked quickly, recommended excellent paint, was very professional, and best of all, our living room is completely transformed and beautiful. We already have a plan in place to bring him back for a few more rooms and once we can afford it, we plan to have him paint the exterior. Highly recommend!

Holy smokes did Cesar and his team do an outstanding job! We would rate 6/5 stats if we could. We had our popcorn ceilings removed, the whole house painted (except a small bath we can experiment painting on our own), and the texture evened out everywhere, since 40 years of patch jobs were really showing. The trim just pops against the wall color! We are more than pleased with this work and will reach out immediately should our self-painting experiment go wrong. They were invested in making sure things turned out the best, not just doing a job. The quality, craftsmanship, and professionalism were above and beyond what we expected.

Highly Recommended! We will definitely be using James and his team again. They were so friendly, very punctual, honest guys and did a phenomenal job. Our cinderblock wall was once covered by Ivy and with a new fence installation, it was exposed and bare... very uneasy on the eyes. James and his team painted it so beautifully as well as pressure washed and cleaned the area thoroughly. We will definitely be using them for any future exterior painting and pressure washing needed in the future. Thanks again!

Working with Jay and his crew was a great experience. They were always on time, cleaned up after themselves and the end product was excellent. Not only that, they finished in three days. I would recommend him to anyone thinking of painting the interior of your house.

Scott and his team absolutely knocked out paint job out of the park. We were on a tight time schedule and the guys kicked it up, worked a couple of long days and delivered an amazing result. Could possibly be happier and we will be looking for opportunities to work with them again. Highly recommend.

Absolutely fantastic experience with Desmon. On extremely short notice, for a multi-room painting job, he responded quickly, put in a fair bid, showed up on time, came ready to work with a positive attitude and stayed till the job was done. And the job matched all expectations. We'd hire him again in a second. Thank you Desmon.

Forget having to decide which painter to choose from on the thumbtack app for your projects. Unique Painting is easily the #1 choice. The service surpassed my expectations. Walter replied back with such grace and professionalism and offered the best deal for the doors I needed painted. I submitted a request via thumbtack and Walter agreed to accept my job with a 1-day notice. He offered me an attractive price that beat 7-8 other contractors and was very professional when we communicated. Everything I listed that needed to be done with prepping the door prior to painting, he responded quickly and assured me that it will be done. And indeed he kept his word. I’ve been renovating my property these past couple months, and every contractor has been late from half and hour to even more than 2 hours. But Walter and Walter Jr. arrived before the scheduled appointment, and greeted me with genuine kindness. From that point on, I knew their service was a 100% going to meet my expectations. The finished job amazed me. They were very precise and made sure they met all my specific needs. I have partial OCD so I can be very meticulous on how things are done on my property, and Walter and Walter Jr. were kind to cater to my needs and with great patience. Additionally, my fiancé is huge on interior design and she was impressed as it met her expectations as well. From the 1-day notice, the affordable price, the professionalism, the punctuality, the kindness, and the level of skill they have in their craft, Unique Painting has easily been my top contractor in the past few years. It was an overall phenomenal experience selecting them for my project. Will definitely reach out to them again in the future. A++

I hired Zoltan to repaint about half of the interior of our home, and I am extremely happy with the results. He was very professional, courteous, on time, and left our house cleaner than when he arrived! We used Behr paint and he had good advice about what product lines and sheens would work best for us. 5 stars all around!

Starting with how he handled the quoting process Jay was professional and responsive. He actually read my requested quote and then asked all the right relevant questions to make sure he was giving me an accurate number. When they arrived Jay and his assistant were polite, neat and professional and did a first class job painting for me. I will be using him again and I will recommend him to my friends and colleagues.
Joanna H.
We had an amazing experience working with Jay! He was able to get the work done in a timely manner, and did stellar work - we seriously have never worked with a more precise and tidy painter. We are so happy with how our gate and door turned out, and he did a great job installing molding on our exterior window and painting it. He is truly a great guy and we couldn't recommend him more!

I can't emphasize enough on how awesome of a team they were. They were extremely honest very polite clean and great quality of work. I have had many people come to my house and do work but I will never bring anyone back in only Robin and Ceasar from now on. I'm so happy to finally find 2 people in this world who are so honest with price and work. On top of that the paint work and cleanliness is #1. Don't go with anyone else trust me I'm picky and I'm very very very pleased. Thank you guys!!
