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.

Contact the best painters near you to start getting free estimates and planning your project.

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.

My house exterior paint job is beautiful. All the houses in my cul-de-sac have been repainted since the July 2016 hail storm. My paint job is by far the best. These guys were in and out in an extraordinarily short period of time. Truly impressive! Thank you All Painting Plus for the outstanding job!

I appreciated a response within an hour from this company. Brothers Colton and Chad offered amazing customer service and kept me informed every step of the way. Their entire crew did an exceptional job painting the exterior of my home and were very attentive to detail. Fair price too! Highly recommend LoCOl Paint.

Mr. Clark and his team painted the exterior and interior of my new home. I am incredibly satisfied with the work they did and equally impressed by their work ethic and knowledge of their profession. I would use them again in a heartbeat!

Art and Fancy Painters were professional, reliable and flexible. I had a rental that needed exterior paint and repairs. It was a bigger job than just exterior paint. On top of the complexity of the project, Art and his crew had to work with a non-compliant tenant. In spite of the obstacles, he and his crew did a great job, followed up on all outstanding items and finished on time. I have hired many painters for my rentals over the years and haven't been happy with the quality of the work and the reliability of the crew. That was not the case with Fancy Painters. I highly recommend Art and Fancy Painters.

Entire exterior power washed, prepped, primed and painted. Used three different colors. Deck rail prepped and painted. Composite deck floor cleaned and stained beautifully. Professional approach from first contact to final walk through. Fulfilled all promises, made and met all commitments. Very thorough and detailed. Experienced group with responsible workers. I could tell they cared about my home from first introduction. Next time I need painting I will call Fancy Paint Painters!

Overall the experience with Fancy Painters exceeded my expectations. We used them for a change to our exterior paint color on our home. Art and his crew were very respectful to all of the members of my family and worked very well around my family's comings and goings. The products that were used on our house were top notch and highly recommended by Art. Art scheduled a color consultation with a sherwin Williams representative (we recommend this to anyone considering a paint job) which helped us to pick the perfect colors. At every turn Art and his crew were very accommodating in order meet our wants and needs. Very good job!!! The paint job has completely changed the feel and look of our home and we could not be happier. Thank you Art and his crew!

My husband and I hired Anthony's Painting, May 2017 for exterior paint on our home . Biggest mistake ever. My husbands a Vet and I thought we could help out a Vet. The first day of the 2 men crew being there, I pulled up to my house for lunch ,and the "lead" guy was blocking my drive way, and I had to wait for him to realize I wanted to park in MY drive way , they guy did not look professional at all , he looked like a "thug". One of the painter was leaning on one of my vehicles, and the other painter had his shirt off VERY UNPROFESSIONAL, this is just the first day in.At the end of the first day, the painters did not clean up there was paint chips all over the place, (I have grandchildren and dogs) The second day there were paint chips in my dogs water bowl and all over the outside kennel.The crew scraped the house, and left big dips, grooves, holes (i don't know what you would call it) all over the house. They said they filled in the dips with caulking on the house and applied the painted over them, leaving the dips very VISIBLE. Dripped( I don't know what) all down the steps on the porch it might be paint thinner????.I spoke with Steve the lead, and told him how unhappy I was about the way the house looked ,He said due to the age of the house that's the best they could do. I am no painter but I am sure that wood can be replaced, I was never asked if we wanted the wood to be replace. They did not fill in the holes that were made from scraping the house.A week in a half into the job, the owner Anthony came out to do a walk around ,I pointed out several things that were wrong with the house. The holes in the house the paint that was dripped all over the brick on the house, which Anthony stated that the painted dripped on the brick was prior to his painters ( I have lived in this house for 10+ years ) I would have noticed paint drippings prior to Anthony's painting company coming on my property. Anthony (the owner) stated that the holes in the house from the painters scraping need to be fixed. He would have the painters come back on Monday 22,2017 or Tuesday May 23, 2017.Friday May 19th, 2017 when the temperature was below 40 degrees, I had painters at my house re-caulking and painting????????? Not a painter but know it has to be warmer than that.No Anthony though. I had his secretary Amy show up at my residence wanting to do a walk around. At this point I am done with this company, nothing was done as stated, I still have big dips on my house , I still have paint all over my brick siding, paint chips, brick on the house painted that should have NEVER been painted,oil stains on stepping stones. While Amy (secretary) and Steve (lead) were at my home to do another walk around Amy stated she did not bring my warranty with her????????? Or a receipt book to write me a receipt of monies collected??????????????????. Thank God I have cameras and she was being video record when taking the cash payment.

Anthony's crew was very professional. We did a change of color on the exterior of our house, plus stain of the outside of our fence. They were very patient in our lengthy decision making of the right color; we went through 10 colors! They came and put the colors on the house for us every time we changed our mind. They were very patient with the payment process as it was also lengthy and required extensive paperwork though my insurance company. They came back to finish the job of painting a replacement garage door after delivery and installation were delayed. They worked around my fiance's sleep schedule since he works night. I would highly recommend Anthony's painting.He was very easy to speak and discuss the process with. We have had several compliments on the new color and quality of the workmanship from our neighbors. He was not the cheapest estimate but we felt he was the best value. We were not disappointed.
