Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How often should you paint your house's exterior?

Expert opinion is mixed, but the general range is five to 10 years. However, this depends on many factors. Houses in harsh climates with extreme temperatures, lots of dust or ice or intense sunlight may need more frequent paint jobs than those in temperate climates. Also, wood houses will need new paint more often due to the changes within the wood itself. You should also consider painting the outside of your house if you plan to sell it.

What is the best exterior house paint?

Acrylic paints are generally considered good options for today’s home exterior paint jobs. You can also choose an oil-based or latex (water-based) paint. Also, look into specialty paints for your doors, roof, gutters, siding and other exterior surfaces.

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.

What colors should I paint my house exterior?

You have many options when it comes to paint colors. For example, an off-white creates a traditional look, and it looks great with a bright door to contrast it. Yellow is a happy color that, while light blue is reminiscent of an oceanfront style. Gray houses are also on trend, providing a classy and neutral tone that remains warm and inviting.

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.

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.

Is it worth it to hire a painter to paint my house's exterior?

It is nearly always worth it to hire a painter to paint your home’s exterior. While you may feel comfortable painting a small, one-story home, anything with multiple stories, dormers or other complexities are best left to a pro.

Additionally, it’s best to let the pros handle older homes. Any time extensive prep work is needed — such as repairing chipping, bubbling, cracking or peeling paint, or fixing caulking and substrate issues — a pro can  handle it.

Can I paint my own house exterior?

While you may choose to paint a door, ground-level window trim and other parts of your house’s exterior, it’s really a job best left to the professionals. One of the main reasons is experience. An experienced painter knows how to handle the prep work, spot problems and identify sources of future trouble, all while getting the job done more efficiently. They are also experienced with spending long hours on tall ladders. If you want high-quality work, it’s best to hire a professional painter near you

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.

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.

Let me just say that Matt and his team at Pura Vida were AWESOME!!! We hired them to paint the exterior of our home and they went above and beyond to take care us, and consistently exceeded our expectations from start to finish. The team showed up bright and early every morning and were always very professional and tidy taking every precaution not to leave any mess. The only thing they left behind was a beautiful paint job that we were very pleased with. Matt was great at communicating with us every step of the way and answering all of our questions. We couldn’t have been happier with their work and their price. Would hire again in a second!! Thanks again to you Matt and your amazing team!
