Ani is super amazing! We had Ani for our son's 4th Birthday party. We were really impressed and happy with her face/palm painting and ballooning skills. She arrived promptly, was great with both the kids and the grown ups. Kids were really happy and thrilled with their painted faces/hands and different balloon creations. Having Ani in our son's birthday party really made our party extra fun and entertaining. Thank you Ani! Highly recommended her to my friends and families.

We found Salinas home remodeling services most helpful in several ways. Services done for us included electrical wiring, plumbing installation, wall and ceiling painting with texture applications. Also, bathtub, sink and appliance installation. All work was done at high standards. Note: we also experienced generous and positive attitudes from soft spoken professionals, and received on time service. Above all, we have memories of his installation process that are most rewarding. Thank You, Mr. Vyron Salinas and his helper Pablo. Yours truly, Nicholas Adkins

Ever was wonderful to work with. He was quick to respond to my request to paint my living room ceiling and wall. The job he did was very professional and turned out better than I hoped. He patched up the irregularities on the surface before priming and painting. He even noticed areas elsewhere that benefited from his work. You can tell that he cares about his work and will do an excellent job!

Gustavo and his crew did excellent work. He was professional and prompt with communication. They were diligent with their work. After loading all of the dirt into the truck to be hauled, they cleaned up our property with a blower and left it looking very good. We would definitely recommend them and want to hire them in the future for projects.

This was my first foray into interior painting, and Mauricio was very patient, conscientious and thorough. He walked me through the process so I understood what he'd be doing every day, and provided a very accurate timing guideline. He asked questions that left me feeling confident he understood the job. There was a lot of coordinating since he was painting a space that was already lived in, and he was very careful and clean with all of my belongings. Awesome. Highly recommend. He's my go-to painter now.

We just had the exterior of our house in Pacifica painted. We absolutely loved the work done by Marlon and his crew . Marlon, took his time and listened to exactly what we wanted and then did an excellent job. They took their time and did not rush though the project. Very happy and would highly recommend them. Don't look any further than JO painting. You definitely get what you pay for. So very happy that we went with J O painting. :)

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.

Diego and Carla of Ulloas Painting were fantastic. Their level of professionalism, the expertise of their painting, the speed with which they worked, and their great prices make them stand out as professional painters. I had a deadline to paint the inside of my house and part of the exterior to put my house on the market. Diego and Carla started right away, finished ahead of the deadline, did multiple coats of paint where needed, were totally fine with me adding more rooms for them to paint, and the paint job is perfectly executed. They worked neatly, they were a pleasure to have in my home. I believe they undercharged for their high quality of work so I paid them extra. They're that good. I will always and only hire Carla and Diego in the future if possible. 5 stars all the way.

I am extremely satisfied with Diego and his company. I hired him to paint 4 bedrooms and a hallway. At the last minute, I added a bathroom as well. He was able to get all the work done in 3 days - which included all the prep work, moving furniture, etc. The end result is fantastic, would use him again for any painting projects I'd have.

We hired Lifetime Remodeling in the summer of 2017 to do a first floor addition to our home in Millbrae. The project involved adding 400 square feet to our house, which included expanding the living room and adding a new bedroom and a new bathroom. It was wonderful working with Sam and his team at every step of the way. Their bid was very competitive compared to the many others I got, and the estimated time for completion (about four months) was much shorter than most of the other quotes. Lifetime's responsive customer service and attention to detail made our lives so much easier. Here are just a few examples of things they did to minimize our stress. When strong winds blew the construction fence over during off hours, they came out here quickly to get it back up and weigh it down with sandbags. When it came time to block off the parts of the house being demolished, they helped us move furniture and cover it carefully so that it would not get damaged or dirty during construction. When they needed to move the wiring for our internet access, they made sure to reconnect it promptly. The temporary wall they built was very sturdy and effective at blocking out dust, so we had no problem continuing to live in the house throughout the construction. Sam also closely inspected all the work and often caught adjustments to be made that I did not notice. For example, even though the interior painting looked fine to me, Sam decided that he wanted another coat. When we did point out other things that needed adjusting, such as leveling out certain fixtures, the team promptly fixed them. When I asked for a different design for our recessed lighting at the last minute, even after some of them had already been installed, Sam accommodated the request. Sam checked in with me often, so I always felt well informed about the next steps coming up and what I needed to plan for. This was awesome because I learned that it can be agonizing to pick out tiles, hardwood, hardware, etc. for a project like this, especially for someone like me doing it for the first time. It was also helpful to have Sam's recommendations for suppliers for the finishes and fixtures. We were really impressed that Lifetime finished the project pretty much right on schedule and with absolutely no cost overruns. To make this happen, most days, Lifetime had a team of two to four workers here by 8 a.m., and they worked steadily for the entire day. They also often worked on weekends. After Lifetime finished the addition to the house, we ended up also hiring them to do landscaping for our front yard and replacing our concrete driveway with paver stones. They also did a great job on this, and we are so happy with and amazed by how our house looks now. Remodeling inevitably involves many hard decisions and a lot of time, energy, and money invested by the homeowner! The last thing you need is a contractor who adds unnecessary stress, yet it seemed like everyone I talked to had horror stories about their contractors. We are so grateful that Sam and Lifetime made it a wonderful experience for us.

Mike and he crew were great! They were very flexible about timing so we did not have to close down our business. They changed a very dark room to nice fresh white paint, patched a lot of old screw holes, and gave my business a very clean look. We have extremely high open rafter ceilings that they were able to work around and made sure it looked spotless. They also did a great job of covering everything and putting paper on the flooring so that there was not a drop of paint anywhere. We will definitely be using them again! I highly recommend Lamorinda Painting

Manuel and his team did an excellent job with painting the interior of our house. They were always punctual, professional and finished the work on time as promised. Their quoted price was very reasonable and the lowest. The price included both labor and paint and yet lower than others. We selected the paint brand too! Highly recommend them. Will gladly use them for future paint needs

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
