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.

Wilmer has done a very good job with Painting my home. His crew were very clean and because I had a time restrain, they worked from 7:30 am to 7:30 2pm. Wilmer himself, spend many hours going through hundreds of paint samples and didn't give up on me until I was able to choose exactly the color I wanted. I am very thankful to him and his crew.

Ari did an absolutely amazing job repairing, painting and doing touch-ups of window, walls and baseboards throughout our house. He's a true professional: he is very responsive, confirmed our appointment promptly and is always on time. With great attention to the detail, the painting job was done to a perfection. My husband and I are beyond happy we found such a skilled painter like Ari and highly recommend him to anyone! On top of it, his work is so neat, there's no stains or spots to clean after he was done! His pricing was very reasonable too.

Victor offered the lowest bid for the interior + exterior painting jobs I needed done, and he had great reviews, so I went with him and was very pleased with the result! There were a couple places I asked him to touch up before he was finished, and the paint job could have been a bit neater (not sharp edges near the trim and a couple drip marks here and there but nothing that noticeable), but overall the job was very good, and his work is truly an excellent value. He was super responsive and reliable and I would choose him again for future jobs!

I needed my condo painted and utilized thumbtack to get estimates from several companies. Joe with Ghandour Builders was the only one to actually measure the rooms prior to giving an estimate. Joe's estimate was very competitive and I was impressed by the professionalism he showed when giving the estimate. Joe painted the condo in two days and it looks AMAZING! He contacted me each morning to let me know when he would be arriving and was very punctual each day. He did a great job and I would definitely use him again and will be referring him to all of my friends!

I hired Fredy to paint portions of a house prior to putting it on the market. Cannot say enough good things about this company! We started with a few small projects and kept adding to the list because the team was so fast and did such great work. Seriously the best choice I made!
