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.

I refer anyone who is looking to do some painting to DJ's painting. They did a great job on our home interior paint.

Luis and team were very good and did a great job. The only problem was they accidentally painted the outside trim with indoor paint. I looked at the paint after they were done and discovered it. They fixed it by adding another coat of outdoor Paint.

The Marz Painting Company did a fantastic job painting the exterior of a rehab project I'm working on. Mario was responsive, professional, and his work was fantastic. I highly encourage anyone who is considering having their home painted to contact Marz Painting Company. Thank's Mario! Matt & Jake

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.

I hired Chris, the owner of Capitol Painting to do the job of painting my small condo. I asked for the walls one color and trim another. He agreed to paint the kitchen cabinets too. There was no patching or ceiling work. His work was not that of a professional but rather someone that hadn't had much experience. He started the job last Tuesday and promised to finish by Friday. He brought in his kids to paint the cupboards. They didn't take the doors off and painted the doors and the hinges! The underside wasn't touched. I had trim paint on my walls and wall paint on my trim. He got paint on all my new door knobs and there is a lot he didn't finish. He came by today and i ended up asking him to leave as he was combative. He ran out of paint twice and in addition, not only do I have to buy more paint, (I gave him $500 dollars for paint), now I have to finish the job myself. I don't have the time for that as I work a full time job and am moving in within a week. Lessons learned the hard way.

Isaac was very professional and punctual. He and his team did a great job prepping the house for the paint job and replacing some boards with dry rot. When they started painting, the job was done in a day. The paint job looks great and I get a lot of compliments from my neighbors. If I have future painting needs, I will definitely hire Isaac again.

Charged an excessive amount of money and did the worst job I have ever seen walls were not painted completely texture was all over tile floors and paint also. Did not paint ceiling in bedroom or livingroom used 3 different colors of paint in the apartment and then could not even tell me what colors he had used. Will never use again. The worst job ever

We asked Pedros Painting to paint cabinets in a rental kitchen. He removed the cabinets and sanded and painted them. Came out amazing. Before and After pics posted. We asked Pedros Painting to paint the outside of the front of the building. He and his crew did an excellent job in replacing rotted siding and painting. He painted the inside walls of the front unit of our duplex, which came out excellent. He performed a full paint of the entire rental unit in the back of our duplex and did a good job! He is responsive, on time and offers great value. We were very happy with all the work he did for us. The last picture is Adees with paint on his teeth, hair and face. He is not afraid of hard work. He also communicates with the customer along the way to make sure everything is what the customer wants. At the end of the job, he again calls the customer to check on the work and he does more touch up so that the customer is happy. Thank you Adees!

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!

Stockdale painting was very professional, and worked well with me on choosing colors for our office. He was fast and efficient. I had a couple of areas that were not the usual painting situation and his work on those places was exceptional. Loved his work.

Blair was great! We did a kitchen remodel and he worked with the ever changing schedule of the other contractors. He did a beautiful job painting our old kitchen cabinets, taking great care to not get any paint where it did not belong. He even came back on a Saturday to attach new hinges (that were delayed in shipping) to the cabinets and rehang them. Blair is our person for any painting needs!!!!
