I originally hired Cruz to put up a fence. However, I quickly realized he was skilled at other areas including painting and home improvement/repair. He did an excellent job putting up my fence, painting it, as well as fixing a few things inside my house in the kitchen and living room. He was extremely professional and his work quality was great. Would definitely hire him again if I need any help with home improvement. Highly recommended for any and all home repair, fencing, and painting!

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.

For this job Omar came within 20 minutes of my job posting. We had a difficult situation with installing our window blinds because they were not the perfect for within windows. He came up with the smartest solution that we didn't think initially. That saved us time and work and blinds look better than before. He gladly agreed to finish some other work around the house within the same hour too. We ended up hiring for our plumbing job as well. He excelled in that as well. We are planning to hire him for our floor installation too.

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!

Vyron and his team did an excellent job for my hallway bathroom and molding and doors for three other rooms. They did a pretty awesome job in tiling our bath room and fixing the drain problem considering our tile is quite big. They are very polite and easy to work with and they do show cares to our home and was able to fulfill all our requests with high quality job. Vyron also came back to finish a bunch of small stuff and brought me the leftover paint I needed and two duct covers they accidentally sprayed when painting the door. This is true customer service and will definitely use again or recommend to friends!

Mauricio was very prompt with giving an estimate and starting when I needed it. He was helpful in offering solutions for things like enclosing a ugly vent and suggestions for baseboards for my garage painting project. His work was very well done and he paid attention to the details. Thanks, Mauricio and team!

Martin and his crew are rock stars of interior house painting. Moved into a rental with many rooms of seriously hellacious colors on the wals. Changed only a couple rooms (rental), going from dark and foreboding to light and energetic colors. Martin and crew managed the transition well, took good care while taping, covering, and working. Beautiful results with dedication and commitment. When I purchase a home, Martin is my guy!

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 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.

Daniel Luna replied quickly with my quote request to repair the leak in our roof.He was able to accommodate me to his busy schedule last Saturday in a long holiday weekend. His quote price is reasonable for the tile roof repair. He took picture of the damage tile and took picture of the work he did. So far I don’t see any leak in my roof but he told me to call him right away if there is any. He is easy to deal with and knowledgeable with what he does. I will use him with my next project in my house. He is punctual and has the professionalism attitude towards his work.

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.

SkyBlue Builders did an excellent job painting our home's backyard fence. They did a thorough pressure wash of the whole surface area without any shortcuts. They painted the whole area to perfection as well. Highly recommend general contract work from SkyBlue Builder Inc.!

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
