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.

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 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.

Boba Painting did a great job painting the exterior of my home. Their workers were very professional. They were prompt, detailed orientied, careful with not getting paint on other surfaces (making sure to cover up any exterior items like lights and shrubs that was next to the house) and neat. I appreciate how they tried to get the work done as soon as possible and when it was possible since it was raining off and on when I schedule them. Can never tell with the weather. Anyway, I am very happy with the work they did and would highly recommend them to family and friends.

We contracted Marvin to paint the entire interior of our house- living room, family room, kitchen, 3 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms and all the doors and trims. Our living room has high ceilings with a lot of corners. and his crew did an excellent job. He suggested colors and brought us some samples to choose from. He was very patient with us. I would give him 5 stars for his patience. A few times, we became undecided about the colors to paint and he gave us some time to think about it. I am very detailed oriented and have to make sure that every corner line is straight and there are no paint streaks or anything like that. Marvin and his crew paid attention to my every request and made sure they got everything perfect. I am completely satisfied with his work and would hire him again when we are ready to paint our celings and do some exterior job. I would absolutely recommend him.

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!

I had sumbitted a project on Thumbtack for painting my house. Aria Painting was the first to respond to set up a time for an estimate. They were very responsive to my messages and texts, and very accommodating to scheduling a time to meet. They showed up on time for the meeting, which is a big plus since I had contacted a few other companies and they were either late or a no-show. They looked at the property and came back with a competitive bid. I was going to hire them but my brother, after a long discussion, wanted to use a company he had called and interviewed. I am sure they would have done a great job given they were very good with emails, text, being on time and answering any of my questions. If I have another painting job that doesn't need my brother's input I would hire them.

Marlon and his team did a great job on our project. We had a larger wall in our church chapel that needed to be painted and Marlon was able to complete the job within one day. He was very professional and responsive during the quoting and scheduling process. He was able to come to the site and provide an estimate and his suggestions before the project as well. His quote for the project was also very fair compared with other quotes we received. Our experience was very positive and would recommend to anyone with a painting project.

Juan was excellent, he completed the project ahead of schedule. Juan will clean after himself each day. He left everything nice and clean, and Juan made sure everything was placed back on its original location. He covered all our furniture, floors, marble counter tops and outlets. Juan even perform additional work he suggested at no additional cost to ensure the work was done properly and most importantly that we felt satisfied. My family and I love the end result. We are extremely happy to have hired Juan to paint the interior of our home’s kitchen/living-room, master bedroom, and hallway. Our places looks amazing!. As a result of his honest work, craftsmanship and professionalism we have now scheduled Juan to paint the exterior of our home. Plus referred him to our family members and dear friends.

needed small bathroom, bedroom and kitchen and laundry room completed. I have never seen a hard worker as Corey Lee is. He arrived every day at / around 8am, worked until 8pm - 9pm. Quiet, respectful and courteous. Was meticulous in his painting, and always made sure my family had access to the rooms. Particularly interested was my dog, Corey treated him as if the dog was his own. I offered to keep him in the kennel, and Corey had no problem with the dog. once dog felt comfortable with him, the dog laid down and rested the day away. I would recommend Corey to anyone who needs painting done. I plan on hiring him again in the near future as i have more work to be done. Oh, did i tell you he is reasonably priced and that always makes me happy, and his craftsmanship is superior. jt

A++++ job here!! Diego and his team were absolutely wonderful! Very trustworthy and gave a fair price for his work. I got several quotes and was SOOO happy that I went with JD & Son's. Their work was immaculate and they paid attention to detail. I appreciated having an expert at hand to answer questions and give a professional opinion. He also was handy with other things around the house so we were able to get TVs hung after the paint job. It saved me time from having to hire someone else for that separate job. Great work!!
