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.

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 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.

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.

DJ's painting did an excellent job on our interior painting. We initially hired them just to paint two bedrooms (including our nursery), but they did such a great job, we hired them again to paint our hallways, bathrooms, and stairwell. They were fast and efficient and worked with our availability. We will definitely call them again for any additional paint jobs in the future.

Blair Rowland painted the interior of my Tudor home, consisting of chalet type ceilings. His work is very professional, his pricing fair and his responsiveness above the norm for contractors. I will be using him again for future painting projects. I recommend him highly.

I solicited six bids to paint the entire interior of my new home. Selecting “A Better Choice Painting” truly was the BEST choice! Extremely organized, exceptionally professional, elegant work – I am genuinely satisfied with the services I received from A Better Choice Painting. Matt and Dominique are great communicators, and simply great people. After I install a new roof next spring, I am planning to contact A Better Choice Painting to paint the exterior of my new home. You should call them too! 

Blair did such an amazing job painting two interior rooms for us. He was very punctual with his response after I submitted a request for a painter through Thumbtack. He responded within about 20 minutes. His price was very reasonable and was great in working with our schedule. We had a couple of timing conflicts on our end and he was nothing but flexible with us which was great! Blair even touched up some paint from the previous paint job, which was not even part of our request. I would highly recommend Blair Rowland Painting for any paint job!

Chad (owner) has delivered a total and complete painting service/experience to us; onsite estimation, color suggestions based on his professional experiences/knowledge (he was like an interior designer!), detailed written contract, painting, and completion. It was a great experience. I must add this, "the entire process was STRESS FREE, every penny spent was worth it". It was a true professionalism. It's hard to find these days.

We had a great experience with Liam! He was quick to respond, gave me a reasonable price and his work was very meticulous and professional. He painted all the interior of our house and not only did he finish on time, but his painting was flawless. More importantly, he is a very nice guy, easy going and good company. Also, he was very flexible when coordinating with the other people working at the house at the same time. It was a pleasure and will not hesitate to call him again for any painting job!

The interior of the house we're moving into needed repainting. Mario and his crew from the Marz Painting Company finished the job in two days and did a great job! I really appreciate how quickly and cleanly they worked. Mario was very pleasant as well as professional. I recommend this company and would hire them again!

Larry was great. He called us to offer his interior painting services and was over to do an estimate in less than an hour. He primed all the walls the night before and finished in the morning. He was very professional and easy to get along with. He communicated with us very well through the whole process. I would definately recommend Larry and will be calling him in the future with any other projects I have. Highly recommended!!!

Osbaldo just finished a big job at our house that included interior painting (on some very tall walls), replaced the baseboards, repaired some drywall damage and he installed two ceiling fans (one using a 14' ladder -- I couldn't watch!) The house looks gorgeous, the quality of the work was excellent, and Osbaldo and his crew are exceedingly pleasant and professional. I will definitely hire Osbaldo again and will recommend him to my friends and family!

Luis and his crew were very professional. They removed my wallpaper in less than a day. He did the ceiling, walls and interior closet the next day. All the edges were knife straight and there were no paint spills anywhere. When I expressed some doubt about the finished color on one wall, Luis offered to repaint it with a different shade at no cost. I decided to live with my color selection but was impressed with his willingness to leave me a satisfied customer. He did.
