David met me at Home Depot, helped me select the right products for the job I asked him to do (replace two doors) and then followed me home to get started. He found out pretty quickly that because I had unusual metal doors/frames and my door cut outs were an inch smaller than usual that the job would be a bit more work than anticipated. We renegotiated the price a little but I was still very comfortable with his fee. Fast forward about six working hours and he was done and the doors look great. The painter and dry waller came the next morning and the finished product looks fantastic. One thing I think is especially worth pointing out is that when the doors first went in neither were aligned perfectly but David knew exactly what to do to fix them and now I only wish all my doors were fitted so flushly.

Best painter ever: prompt, professional, kind, and we felt very comfortable with him in our home. Other painters ignored or overbid us. Rudy came in at the last minute, and did a wonderful job, for a fraction of anyone else's price. We hired him to do more work same day, and probably much more in the future. If you are lucky enough to be able to hire him, do it with no hesitation, and consider yourself lucky to have found him.

🎨Hired for Interior Paint: I’m very happy w the outcome!! Mauricio is very professional. Gave me a quote the next day and was available to paint on the days that I requested. Very fair price and he and his team patched up all the holes in the walls and put back the texture before painting. He was the only one of all the painters who offered to do that since he also specializes in dry wall. He gave a very honest and professional opinion of which walls should be the main colors vs the accent wall. His team paints very fast and accurately but they don’t cut corners. He painted my whole place in 2 days (to let the paint dry between coats) where as the other painters said they would only do it in 1 day... which I felt was too rushed. I’d definitely hire Mauricio and his team again!! 👍🏽😁

Mark is competent, flexible, and pleasant. His rates are reasonable too. He installed curtains, towel racks, and a cat tree. He hung a very large painting, fixed broken blinds, and reconfigured furniture. He did all of this with competence and precision. Very happy with his work and will certainly hire him again.

We hired her for a birthday party with 20 or so 4 year-olds. Every child who wanted a face paint got one and they were all happy with the result. She's professional, courteous, great with kids, and her work is very beautiful. I've met a few face painters and she is one of the best I've met. I would definitely hire her again!!

Allan was outstanding. He responded quickly to my request and gave me a very good estimate. We wanted the job to be done the following week and he made it happen. Allan had another job he had to attend to, so he sub contract this out to Omar Madrid of Madrid Painters. Oh my gosh, Omar is the hardest working man I have ever seen. In the blistering heat wave, he redid out ceilings and painted the whole interior in less time than what was expected. I would definitely hire these two gentlemen again.

Everything about Marlon is great. Not only did he show up on time for the estimate, but he was the only one of four painters to actually give me an estimate broken down the way I asked for. My assistant manager tells me the job looks great and I'm happy for my new tenants! Thank you thumbtack!

I needed to re-paint two rooms to their original color before moving out. Marvin and his crew arrived on time, did the job and also helped me repair some wall nail holes and some stains in the stairs. Thank you Marvin.

Diego did an amazing job painting the interior of our home. We have 4 bedrooms, living room, dining, kitchen, and hall/stairwell painted. In addition, we also had our kitchen cabinets painted and handles placed on the cabinet doors/ drawers. Diego is a very skilled painter; he's detailed and thorough, he listened to what we wanted and he followed through.

This was my first time using Thumbtack and I'm impressed with the easy of use and communication with the pro. Manuel responded quickly to my questions and texts through Thumbtack. I made a request on a Saturday. Manuel came to my house Sunday morning to bid the job. We set up an appointment for Wednesday of the same week and the job was finished on the same day. The job was small, 1 child's bedroom about 10'x10'. It included the walls, ceiling, and door/casing. He was on time for each meeting and was very nice. He accommodated me by using the paint brand of my choice (Behr) even though he suggested Kelly-Moore. I'm a DIYer, but my husband encouraged me to hire a painter to knock out the job. With my schedule, this would have dragged on for a couple weekends, if I did it myself. Boy, does it feel good to have a project finished, done well, and completed at a fair price! I highly recommend Manuel. :)

Royal Painting is the real deal! Jonathan got immediately to us after our request. He made the appointment and was on time, and was able to give me a written bid immediately. With Royal Painting , there was no job that they could not handle. My home is older, had a lot of old wallpaper, I could not take off, and had some dry wall issues that badly needed repair. I had 2 other painters come to give me a bid, but never called me back , after looking at the job. Johnathan was able to schedule my job and complete it in a timely manner .His employees were exceptionaly professional. They were on the job at 8:00am, and left at 5:00pm. Very clean , very meticulous . Just like you want a professional painters to be. My home went from old and dated, to fresh and new again! I wish I had done this years ago! Thank You Johnathan and your crew @ Royal Painting!!

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
