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 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 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 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.

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.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

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.

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.

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.

Did a great job of scraping and painting the eaves of my house. Very thin coats of paint on the rest, missed a lot of small spots. Poor cleanup of scraped paint. Lots of over spray on plants and broke some. Wads of paper in my bushes, left edging tape still stuck.

Mike's team did an excellent job including pressure washing first, caulking and taping then painting and ensured all the garbage was disposed of. In addition, they took paint samples from my home, perfectly matched the two colors, and when done, left me with leftover paint cans. I am a very satisfied customer.

Welchez Painting was so easy to work with from the first bid to the final walk thru. They arrived on time and provided exceptional painting and protection of carpet. Fernando patched a hole in the wall and blended and fixed the ceiling. His knowledge and experience is evident and matched by his strong work ethic. Hire this company and you will be so happy with the value, communication and beautiful paint job.

Super Painters did a super great job painting the walls of about eight rooms and patched, textured, and painted one ceiling. The owner and crew were punctual and professional, and they even helped complete a handyman job I asked them to do. The quality, speed, and attention to detail were all top notch. I highly recommend them for your next paint project!

Golden Painting Services seemed too good to be true, and they were. They came in roughly $2,000 less than all the other quotes, which they said was because they are a family owned business and never sub-contract out the work. And they said they'd paint our lattice above our deck, which seemed like a great deal. In the end, they sub-contracted the work with a painting crew that doesn't have much experience painting exteriors (which they admitted) and we got a very poor quality paint job. We have spray marks, we have chipping paint on our wood trim, and after 4 trips back for touch ups, we are still left with a crappy paint job. We ended up paying this company $400 less because we got tired of dealing with them and the sub-contracted painters. It was clear they didn't have the talent or ability to do the job correctly. I would strongly recommend against using them. Pay a little more and get the job done right.

Special Projects Plus painted the interior of my home. They painted all the walls, ceilings, and trim. We are living in the house and this presented challenges to my family members and the workers. They were very patient and flexible and worked well with us to make sure the job was done as quickly as possible. They first sent in a team of cleaners to make sure the walls were clean, the cob webs were removed, and everything was ready for painting. After the painting was complete, they sent in another cleaning crew who worked hard to get my house back into a state that it had not been for many years. The paint job was excellent! I recommend them to anyone. This company knows what they are doing. Very committed to customer satisfaction.

Marvin Wallace and his crew were OUTSTANDING in every category. We had them paint the entire interior of our home, and are so thrilled with the results. First of all, they did a great job on the painting itself and protected all the contents of our rooms perfectly. They were prompt, reliable, and professional...and also friendly! We had them painting in our home while we were out of town. We had full confidence and trust to leave our home and our project in their care, and they went above and beyond to communicate with us to report on the progress while we were away...including video chat updates, which we greatly appreciated. We would recommend Wallace Pro Paints to a friend in a heartbeat, and plan on hiring them again for future painting jobs!
