We contracted with Michael Delavega on Nov. 14, 2016 to paint the exterior of our 2800 sq.ft. home. Michael, Michelle and Jose did an outstanding job of listening to our wishes. The level of prep work was excellent, as well as the paint of our stucco, trim and aluminum garage doors. We had a problem selecting the right paint color for our garage doors, and their team went above and beyond to help us get it just right. The pride of their workmanship is obvious in all the little details they perform. As Michael says, "We want you to be 110% satisfied with your paint project". They are friendly and a pleasure to work with. Their pricing was fair and very competitive. We highly recommend Michael's Discount Painting!

We had David rip out our 27 year old shower and install a new, modern, tiled shower enclosure. The results were beautiful. We also had him rip out the old lightbox and install new lights, rip out the old vanity and install a new one, and then texture and paint the new drywall. It was all done very well. David was always punctual and conscientious, and worked long days to get our job done as quickly as possible. It looks great, at a fraction of the cost of what Home Depot or similar businesses charge.

Donaldo came out with 2 other men to paint our downstairs, stairwell and hallway. He gave me a good quote for the job. He came out Monday for the estimate and they started work on Tuesday. They did an excellent job. They even painted the trim and the door leading to the garage. I will definitely call them again when it's time to paint my upstairs rooms.

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.

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 from JP Custom Home Construction is a total pro. Courteous, punctual, and a great value. I scraped a popcorn ceiling in one of my bedrooms; Jose sanded, taped, texturized, painted, ran electric, and installed a ceiling fan/light. Amazing work. I will definitely be using this little company again!

I hired Hugh to retexture and paint my bathroom. He did that and so much more. He has so many skill sets. He was able to install my fan and light fixture, cleaned the grout, hung doors, installed my toilet, and fixed a plumbing leak. He is thoughtful, on-time and an all around good guy. Hugh is trustworthy and I highly recommend him. He is a stickler for detail and does quality work. Hooray!

I'm an interior designer and hired Eagle Finishing to refinish a wicker dining set for a client. It had a lot of damage, which they repaired flawlessly. It looks brand new. FYI their work is fabulous, but they are not punctual. You do need to follow up and prod them. Also, they were supposed to replace the casters but didn't order them in time to install before delivery. It is something we could do. My client and I overlooked these inconveniences because the quality of their work is exceptional.

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.

We were desperate for a painter to do a huge job painting the interior & exterior of our house so we could list it quickly. Juan and his excellent team worked through the weekend for us to help get the job done quickly. I couldn’t believe the amazing quality and speed of his work! I am recommending him to my realtor and everyone I know looking for a reliable, friendly painter who does top notch work! Thank you, Juan and your hard workers!!

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
