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.

Anthony's Painting took care of the interior painting of my house. They used 3 different types of paint (ceiling, walls, trim). I was extremely happy with the outcome and would definitely hire them again for my next painting project!

Lil’Bit Painting and Decorating came through for me on a last minute paint job. I needed to have chipped paint on a property I listed removed and repainted with less than one day’s notice. Lil’Bit Painting and Decorating responded quickly, arrived on time to give me an estimate and completed the job on time. In fact, the paint job they did exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend them to anyone needed a professional paint job.

For your next painting job look no further. Daniel did a phenomenal job! His matching of paint color to existing sun faded outdoor paint was 100% spot on! Can’t even tell that he did a painting job. It was blended in perfectly. He was very punctual and responsive to requests to get the job completed. I would hire him again in a heartbeat! Recommend him 1000%

I would highly recommend South Park Painting for any paint jobs you might need. Josh just completed our living room that has cathedral ceilings. It looks amazing. Hard working, honest, thorough, and the work is impeccable. I will be using him again for our exterior this Spring, and any other painting jobs that come up. 10/10.

We are very happy with our experience with myc services. They completed a large project for us - popcorn ceiling removal and painting in our 3500sq ft house. Aside from doing a great job on painting, they were extremely courteous, clean, and professional - all for a great rate. I highly recommend them will definitely use them for any other large painting jobs in the future!

I generally don’t take the time to write testimonials about companies or services. I decided to write this testimonial about All Painting Plus because I want to share with everyone just how impressed I am with the work this company did for me recently. All Painting Plus is very professional, they were great about communicating with me throughout the job, and they completed the work within the timeline estimated. All Painting Plus didn’t just go the extra mile, they went the extra five miles and truly did an exceptional job. They turned my homely little condo into a beautiful space. I have already spoken with them about a future painting job I need completed. I’ll definitely hire them again. If you are on the fence about who to hire for your next painting plus job, hire All Painting Plus – you will be happy you did.

From the time to the estimate to the time of finishing, LoCol Paint did an amazing job in painting our house. Great communication, affordable pricing, quality inspection by their Project Manager, Molly, and their painters did an outstanding job. Our house was an ugly yellow and needed a face lift. Their paint specialist helped us pick out a color scheme that really matched our style. We will be using them again for interior and will refer them to others. We are very satisfied with the outcome. Highly recommend!
