Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost to hire an interior painter ranges between $200-$2,700. 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 get the outside of your house painted?

You can expect to pay around $2,535 to get the outside of your house painted, though this cost will increase with larger house sizes (and decrease with smaller ones). The average hourly rate for exterior painters is $45 and ranges from $25-$75.

Wood, brick, stucco, vinyl, aluminum and stone each have their own set of demands. Contact exterior painters near you to get a detailed cost estimate for your house.

How much should interior painting cost per square foot?

You can expect a 12x12-foot average room with 8-foot ceilings to cost $100 to paint, while a 16x16-foot room with 9-foot ceilings could cost around $175. 

To calculate the cost of interior painting per square foot, measure the square footage of wall space and ceiling space of your room. From this, you can estimate the number of gallons of paint needed to cover the wall space and compare it to these figures. You can also ask interior painters near you to provide an estimate before you hire them.

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 $917 (for one room) to $4,893 (for eight rooms). 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 interior painters charge per hour?

You can expect to pay $50 per hour for interior painting. This price will change depending on a number of factors and may range between $30 and $160 per hour. Some factors include the height of the rooms, the complexity of the painting and more.

For an accurate cost estimate, request quotes from local painters and contractors.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Needed work on my kitchen roof. Removal, patching and repainting. They showed up and did great work. Ensured not a drop of paint landed anywhere other than the roof. Patched up and evened the entire ceiling. Will recommend to anyone needing painting.

Lucas did an amazing job. He painted almost my whole place, about 1900 sq ft. Changed colors and painted baseboards in 3 bedrooms, hallway, stairs, and living rooms. Very professional and punctual. Would definitely recommend

Max and his brothers were polite as well as very careful while painting my kitchen cabinets. I am pleased with the quality of their work. They not only gave me the best bid but also the best type of products to use. A lacquer paint was used and it looks as if the cabinets came from the manufacturer this way.

Carlos was friendly, responsive, professional, and did great quality work. His bid came in significantly lower than the next two. I was selling a house and needed painting done in each room. He and his crew did everything in 7 rooms and ceiling and trim in another in a week's time. No one else estimated the job getting done that quickly, including a guy who was just going to spray it all the same color. I'm very happy we went with CCs Painting.

He did an awesome work painting the walls, trims, windows casing, ceiling and crown molding of one of my rooms. He changed from white to a dark color the entire room, including the closet. I will hire him for sure for future projects! His price is fair and his service is amazing! Thank you!

Angelica is not like me. I start my days early and work long days when I have a specific project or job to do. I like to under promise and overdeliver. Angelica does not start her day until later, and, when doing outside mural painting, the sun and the heat always slowed her down. This was a big project with a firm deadline. I had several quotes from Muralist’s that affirmed their belief that they could do the job with plenty of time to spare. Because of the time constraint ( that was really self imposed by starting late most of the days - however she did paint on until dark on many days: the first few days she had opportunity to work but decided she had enough time. As for the murals, the beach scene and the Hungarian countryside scene came out nice. One wall was not done in a “mural” sense, she thought it would look better to just paint shrubs and plants instead of a mural base and then all the shrubs and trees/flowers. She is a nice lady, talented, but much different work ethic. For those of us that get up early and work long hours and study, we look at work ethics differently. She also spent a lot of time on phone for important calls and text messages while she was trying to finish. I wish her well, she is talented and nice detail, but not completely satisfied. Ran out of time to do the whole project

I would recommend CoCos Painting to anyone who appreciates quality work at a reasonable price. Carlos called me right away, came out the same day to give me an estimate. He quoted me a reasonable price of all the work that I needed done. He and his crew were able to get started quickly, they showed up on time and did the work well and within the time frame promised. I will definitely use them again in the future and would recommend them to friends without hesitation.

The team of two men who came to give us an in-person quote went above and beyond to make sure that all of our needs were met. They were so helpful, offered extra ways to help us out (like replacing lights in the front of the house after the outside was freshly painted to add to curb appeal--they looked up inexpensive lights and then installed them for free!) and overall were extremely professional. They offered to come back at any point to redo any work we were dissatisfied with, and fit us into their busy schedule when we told them our deadline. These guys really helped us make our old house shine and were beyond kind! Great experience!!
