Harp and his team communicated well and got the job done (painting). They also proactively identified some additional areas that needed work and took care of those as well.

Ricardo was wonderful. He did an amazing job of painting my bedroom, was quick and clean and left the space tidier than he found it. I would absolutely recommend him and will use him again for my next project (assuming that he is available)... Brilliant.

We will absolutely recommend and use Elemeno Painting for painting projects! Thank you Keith!!

We were really pleased with the work Matt did. We had a handful of projects that he completed for us: -Painting and installing trim and a dowel in our laundry -Adding reinforcements, a bike hook and shelving to a storage unit -Hanging floating kitchen shelves He has a great attention to detail when it comes to things like tight seams, clean edges and making things level. He was also on time, friendly, polite and cleaned up after himself. I will note that while we did pay the amount he initially quoted us, it worked out to more than his listed rate of $50/hr, but still seemed reasonable for the job. We'd be happy to use Matt again for future projects!

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

Mauricio came to my home and provided an estimate to paint my Master Bedroom, Closet, Bathroom and Family Room. The price was very reasonable and Mauricio gave me a detailed explanation on how the job would be completed and a time frame. Mauricio and his crew showed up on time and completed the job in record time! They were very professional and neat! He also completed some repair work for me outside of painting. A Big Bonus! I am definitely pleased with the outcome and would hire them again!

Fantastic experience working with Jasper. I purchased a plain wood dresser and wanted it stained, painted, and with new hardware. Fast and easy communication, quick turn around on the project, and the work completed was of high quality. Would absolutely recommend him.

We had a great experience working with Victor from C&C Painting. He was willing to work with us when choosing paint color, purchasing products, and doing extra work when necessary. He always showed up on time and was incredibly responsive. He was professional and followed up to make sure we were happy with his work. We enjoyed working with him and would recommend him and his crew any time!

Eduardo and his crew did an amazing job drywalling and painting our cabin in our backyard. I chose Eduardo because he had a great idea on how to improve my vaulted ceiling, which was really important to me. As the job progressed, Eduardo had other helpful ideas which made for a better finished product. I have also hired him to install baseboards and a barn door, which is currently in progress! I was able to communicate well with Eduardo, his English is pretty good. His son, Jose, speaks perfect English, so you can always follow up with him to make sure things are clear and properly communicated. I have already hired Eduardo to do another project and plan to hire him again in the future. Thanks Thumbtack, for helping me find Eduardo!

Richard helped me design and remodel some features of my home before selling. Richard has a great eye for design and is able to construct as well. Richard and his team poured a new (black) concrete driveway, built me a new lateral cedar stained fence and painted the exterior of my home navy blue. This lead to a quick sale above asking, Thanks!

Diego is an incredible painter and handyman. We had Diego paint the entire interior of our house. Four bedrooms, two baths, dining room, kitchen, living room, and two hallways. He came out to the house three times before beginning the job to discuss the work and make sure he understood exactly what we wanted. He was flexible when we wanted to add on painting our front stairs and porch. He helped us with lighting fixtures and gave us many tips and suggestions around what colors to paint. He is very professional and the quality of his work is outstanding. He’s also the most communicative professional I’ve worked with. He called us every night to let us know where he was with the work and what his plan was for the next day. Would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Andrew was thorough and prompt. He recommended and installed ceiling speakers; fixed a bunch of patch holes that a previous contractor neglected to patch; recommended and acquired paints and materials. When a job was out of his comfortable skill set he let us know. As an aside, he looks a little older then his profile picture, which was a little offsetting at first. That said with age comes experience, and he has a wealth of skills and the right attitude. I would definitely recommend working with him again, and will be running future projects by him as well.

Mike of Lamorinda Painting delivered excellent customer service. He did a beautiful job painting our house in Martinez within the committed timeframe. He replaced the dry rot trim boards, filled the cracks and gaps and prepared the exterior surface to ensure proper adhesion of paint. Mike worked well with our tenants living in the house; they said he was very courteous. A couple of the homeowners in the neighborhood stopped by and commented on the beautiful paint job. Based on our positive experience with Mike, we would not hesitate to hire Lamorinda Painting for any future painting.

I hired Juan to remove the popcorn texture from my condo and to prep the ceiling for painting. The whole job took about 2 and a half days. I was very impressed with how professional and punctual Juan was. Juan's work exceeded my expectations and I would love to work with him again in the future. Keep up the good work, Juan!

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
