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.

Beautiful exterior painting of my Boulder home. Very reasonable pricing using high quality paints. Good attention to detail. Finished the job ASAP (lots of rain delays not his fault). Will refer him to friends and associates.

I hired Aaron owner of Detailed Painters to paint the exterior of my house, shed, and porch. He was very professional and he and his crew did an excellent job! In addition, he painted an inside bedroom and made the ceiling/wall paint lines crisp in other rooms that a different painter didn't do correctly. He was very responsive, repaired fascias as needed, reasonably priced and made sure I was completely satisfied with his work. I will hire him again soon for other projects I need done!

Erik did a good job with the painting, but never gave me a paid receipt for my cash payment for tax purposes and then went dark on me when I asked him for a receipt either by text or phone (three times). He did a great job on the painting so disappointed by the lack of follow up. He should have earned a 5.

Erica came out for an estimate to paint a bedroom and some partially finished doors and trim in our basement. She was communicative, punctual, and very knowledgeable about color and paint. Her bid was reasonable. We ended up going with another company simply because our schedules didn't align. We'll keep her in mind for future paining projects.

Levi and his crew provided excellent service. I had a short timeline to get a two rooms painted and ready to list my condo. Levi was responsive to all my questions, gave me a quick estimate and was able to schedule my job quickly. They were punctual and turned around two rooms in about 3 hours. The paint looks great!

The team at Super Painters was amazing!!! They painted our entire house in a very timely manner. They are extremely reasonably priced for the work they did. In addition to the paint, they also did drywall patching, removed decorative trim, and patched walls. Juan is also so lovely and wonderful to deal with. He communicated throughout the process and had no issue as we added new parts to the project. I will definitely use them again!

Amelia, Gustavo, and the entire Cruz Chapas Painting team were amazing! From day one, they showed professionalism and a passion for their work that was unmatched by any other company. They talked me through my estimate and what to expect, they tried to help me find a general contractor to do some external repairs before beginning the paint job, and they were so extremely thorough in their work and it very much shows. The finished product looks amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I was looking for someone to paint my entire two-bedroom apartment in downtown Boulder and found Uriel here on Thumbtack. Very, very happy I did. Uriel is very professional, and he was very helpful and easy to get a quote (via call and a visit). Very quick to start and finish the job. I just ha to pick a color, send the color code to Uriel and the next week he started the painting and finished in 3 days! He painted all the walls white - they were all different colors- and it looks absolutely beautiful. Uriel was prompt, neat and excellent. And the followup all the way through the project was 100% professional. I see no reason to look anywhere else if you are in the Boulder/Denver area. It's not often you get a quote and when everything is all said and done the price is the same as agreed on. Uriel stayed true to his word and did an amazing job!
