Hired Lopez painting to paint my dads home - living room, dining room, hallway and bedroom were painted. Neri and team did an awesome job!!! They arrived early, and finished on time. All was on budget. Lopez painting knows their craft - they're excellent painters. I highly recommend them, and plan to hire them for future paint jobs.

My experience with Fredy and his painters was great. Fredy is incredibly professional and responsible. He was available and responsive via text to confirm the work and communicate leading up to and during the work being done. He gave me the best quote for the work, and the job was completed on time. I was clear that I didn't need the walls repaired to perfection or sanded, etc. So the quality of the job reflects that - some spots were certainly repaired, and those were done well. There is one section of one of the rooms that doesn't look like it got a second coat of paint. There was also a small change based on a miscommunication -I needed 4 metal plates (about 8" by 3 feet long each) that were mounted to the wall also painted over. Initially, they were taped and not painted, so the guys had to rush in the last 3 hours or so to get them done and, understandably, the end product looks a bit sloppy. Fredy also helped me with a small spot on the front of the building that was marked with graffiti, which wasn't included in the original job. He went out of his way to match the paint himself and paint over the spot, and I appreciate so much the "above and beyond" effort. However, the color didn't end up matching so the front of our building is now 2-tone : / I was unable to be around during much of the work, so I basically just trusted the process and walked away. The guys were super trustworthy too, which is so important to me. With regards to the quality of the work, I am about 90% satisfied and would use them again for sure. I would just be more present next time to help sort out and manage the small things as they come up. Thank you Fredy!

I was looking for someone to paint my condo. I interviewed three painters and they all said they couldn't get to my job for three to four weeks! When I posted my job, Ed called me immediately. He said he could give me a quote the same day. His quote was very reasonable. He even said he could start the same day!! He finished the job earlier than he promised me and the work quality was amazing! I will hire him for my next project!!

Jarrod was quick to come to the rescue when my originally hired painters fell through. He painted my entire apartment for a great flat rate price, up front and no hidden costs. We discussed what I needed, he recommended the paint and went to work getting it finished. Wish I would have found him first, would have saved me time and trouble.

We hired Excel Construction to do a complete kitchen remodeling and enlarge the existing space by expanding the walls several feet to the patio area. The new kitchen included the installation of the upper and lower cabinets, new paint, new backsplash, marble counter top, LED lighting and new dishwasher, stove and range. Eyal, the project manager and Revital (the lady that we worked with in regards to all the documents, payments and permits) from the office who did an outstanding job helping us. During the work, we clearly noticed that they were always made sure that the costs will remain the same and won’t pass the budget that was set at first and they made sure the job was done accurately. All the sub-contractors that they employed for our house (carpenters, electricians, painters etc.) were outstanding, qualified and experienced. We were very fascinated that our project Eyal was able to complete the entire kitchen few days earlier than he promised us. We were always given a personal attention by Eyal, who was very good in communication and organized and by Revital. The new kitchen looks perfect and very useful and we strongly recommend them and we will hire them again for any remodeling project we may have.

Hebert takes great pride in what he does. He is careful and meticulous. He stands behind his work. He painted my entire loft in a day, including a dark contrast wall in the bathroom. We're talking 11' foot ceilings here. His paint job was so clean, I could see the imperfections of the previous painters where they overpainted onto cabinets and mirrors. Hebert came back a second time to touch up and area and even cleaned the previous painter's mistake from my mirror. And he was the only reasonable quote I received. He's honest, and likeable. I will only call from now on

Hiring Johnny has been the best decision I've ever made, in the past I've had hired many other painters who gave me cheap price but at the end I was very disappointed for their work was a terrible mess. Trusting Johnny with my home painting project is a decision I can make all over again, his price was extremely reasonable and his work is more than perfect. I am very happy to have my house painted the way he did, his expertise advise helped me through choosing the colors and picking the right paint. Johnny will now be my number one painter for all my upcoming projects, besides painting he knows carpentry, he fixed my bathroom door and medicine cabinet! I am very satisfied. If anyone thinks in painting call Johnny don't hesitate give him a call and he will make wonders with any project. Thank you Johnny -Maria Elena

Nelson is very professional and easy to work with. He definitely goes above and beyond. As far as quality of work is concerned the difference between painters we've used in the past and Nelson is like the difference between a car wash and auto detailing. And he is very reasonable with his pricing. Best of all though he takes pride in his work and shows up when he says he will. I would definitely use him again. As a matter of fact he will be doing another job for me later this summer.

Edwin and his team were great to deal with!! Very professional. I usually just do my own painting when needed, but this job involved very large/tall rooms and I thought it was best to have it done professionally. They actually did an unreal good job on the prep work, making sure the job looked nice and no mess was left behind. They even went above and beyond. We changed our mind mid way with one of the ceiling colors and they adjusted with no hassle. In fact, they agreed it would look better. I would hire them again without a doubt. In fact, I may do that before doing the work myself next time, because they do it quickly and it looks great.

I contacted Jerry about painting two bathrooms for me. They needed to be primered and painted relatively quickly. He was immediately responsive and friendly and worked with me to get the appointment set and offer a fair price. When he arrived, he worked efficiently and quickly and did a fantastic job. Jerry is a professional and also a kind human being. I would heartily recommend him for any project.

After Moshe, who said his name was DANIEL, and I came to an agreement, he said his guys would start on Saturday. Saturday a couple of guys who looked like painters (that is what I was having done) showed up and started to unload equipment. Another guy pulls up, on the phone, doesn't look like a painter, tells the other guys to pack it up. I ask what's going on, he says he never agreed to the price and they were going to have to get some one much cheaper! He leaves telling me that Daniel would be calling me. 2 hours go by no call, so I call him. No answer so I leave a message. Another 2 hours go by and I call again and I get him. He apologizes and says someone will be out Monday but by this time I have a bad feeling about all this. I want to cancel but he will not let me. He's coming out Monday to paint and if I don't play him he will sue I! So I hang up but decide to check his license number. It shows up as expired. He calls me back by accident so I ask him about it. He gives me another number and said he made a mistake! So far I wouldn't recommend this guy to anyone...

Favorite faux painter in LA! The French Brush has been recommended to me by a contractor, and I am so glad I found Carole Da-Cruz, who was able to execute my vision by creating beautiful and colorful accent walls in my home. Her unique faux finishes have added a lot of depth to my rooms. Carole is definitly very experienced, reliable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Amazing artistry. Loving it, and highly recommend The French Brush!

Bob showed up every day exactly on time . He worked quietly room to room always considerate of us living in the house, creating as little chaos as possible. He is a pro painter. Works alone efficiently and quickly. He preps, cleans then applies paint perfectly. He is easy to communicate with and amenable to changes. His price is extremely fair and he finished in the expected time. It was easy and stress less. The outcome beautiful.

Jonathan is an excellent painter and is probably one of the easiest people I have ever worked with. He was clear, precise, and spot on about his timeline. He listened and was incredibly agreeable with all of my requests. He was flexible, timely, and very professional. I CANNOT stress how transparent and easy he was to talk to. I truly felt taken care of and would highly recommend him.

William Wall has my painting business for life. He's super responsive, punctual, neat, and did a fantastic job on my exterior trim - the house looks amazing now. He even did several extras that weren't in the scope of the bid, just because it was the right way to do things. Pricing was extremely reasonable, and he used top quality paint, so the house will be looking good for a long time to come. He was also great with my large dogs, and they liked him right back. (He keeps gates closed too!!) Thanks, William - see you again next time I need a painter!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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
