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.

What should I look for when choosing a painter?

When choosing a painter, pay attention to online reviews and ratings. Reviews with pictures are especially valuable, as these showcase the painter’s work. It’s also important to check whether your state requires licenses for painters — if it’s required, your contractor should be able to present their license. 

Finally, compare estimates and quotes from multiple painters near you. Take into consideration what each one guarantees with the job, including factors like higher-quality paint, extensive preparation and a good warranty.

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 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.

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.

Rudy proved to be a great pro. I hired him to paint my metal gate and fence, he showed up early and did meticulous and very careful work! He taped and protected the surroundings, walls and base and did a high quality paint job. I would hire him again.

Great job. The paint looks great. Went above and beyond. I was in the process of moving in and Hebert dealt with many of the people showing up throughout the day. More than he needed to do. Highly recommend.

We contacted 6 painter from Thumbtack and Ryan was the first to respond and come look at our home. He quickly sent us an estimate. Once at the home to to over colors and paperwork we were provided with cost of additional details we realized we needed. Once everything was discussed Ryan never tried to change our original quote and finished the work exactly when he promised. We are so happy that we chose Painting Cali for our painting needs and will refer him to anyone that asks for an excellent painter.

Allyson truly listened and really understood our concept and expectations. Great to work with; excellent communication. She painted on a corrugated water tank (not easy to do) and totally "knocked our logo out of the park" so to speak. We would definitely hire her again if the need arises. Thank you, Allyson, for your skill and expertise.

We hired Freddi and his team last summer to paint the interior of our home. Freddi was cost effective compared to the other estimates we received and completed the project sooner than estimated. Freddi and his team were professional and punctual. We were so happy with the end result we are looking to have Freddi complete another job for us.

I went with Melissa and Don because they had great reviews and I liked Melissa's personality from the start when I talked to her. Boy was I right! Going from a simple "patch these couple of holes over here" project into a full house paint and fix-ups remodel, Melissa and Don were absolutely amazing! They gave us reasonable quotes for all kinds of odd jobs around the house and came up with creative solutions each step of the way. They stuck to their quotes (we all know what I'm talking about here, hate it when that happens) and went above and beyond the call of duty!! To top it off, they were up front, genuine, nice, and fun to be around people (which is important when you're dealing with remodel and contractors). Go with DZ Handyman - you'll get a way better experience with these guys, they are skilled at what they do, they like it, and it shows (think even painting, etc.)! It's no wonder they have so many great reviews! Thanks a lot, Melissa & Don! - L&T

Working with Carlos was a great experience. From the moment I sent the Thumbtack request, his response time was close to "no wait time", his professionalism was superb, and his mannerism and business conduct was superior. He arrived on time, was open to the adjustments made after walking the job, and his skills and work ethic are exceptional. We were extremely pleased with the outcome of our masterbed and bath. We will be referring Carlos and we will be working with Carlos for all our future interior painting needs.

I am so happy with the wonderful work done by Cesar Torres, his Dad Carlos, and the rest of their team. They were always on time, worked hard, and were very careful to cover everything from ceiling to floor. I was on a tight deadline to have the house painted from top to bottom before moving in and they were able to juggle their schedule to jump right in and begin work immediately with a large crew. We worked together to identify the best color matches and the inside of my home is just gorgeous now. And their price was very competitive. THANK YOU CESAR, CARLOS and team!
