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.

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

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.

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.

We could not be more happy with our experience working with Eugene and his crew. They painted our exterior brick, windows and doors. We happily recommended him to our friends were also looking to paint the exterior of their home. They were extremely quick with the project and did an excellent job!! Thank you Eugene and crew!

BKC Painting did such a thorough job painting the exterior of our house. He worked for several days with an electric sander to get ALL the paint that was chipping off, caulked the house, and did 2 coats of paint. James is a great communicator and keeps you in the loop on progress. Would highly recommend BKC painting.

I will be coming back to Irish Pro Painting for any future projects. The price was incredibly reasonable, but more importantly, Eugene was very responsive and easy to work with. It was a one man project, and I didn't catch the gentleman's name, but he was very friendly and did an excellent job. It was a simple exterior garage paint job, but we are very pleased. Thank you Eugene & crew!

These guys were awesome. After deciding to go with them, I booked and they were able to move my job up the schedule and get it knocked out quickly. I was so pleased with the exterior that I got a bid for the interior as well, which they started the same day they finished the exterior and worked late into the night and through the weekend to get it taken care of. They were flexible, responsive and the price was great as well. Larry, Peter and crew are my new go-to painting crew in the Denver area.

Couldn’t be happier with the exterior paint work completed on my house today. I had high expectations from reading other reviews but the house is even better than I expected. The attention to detail and care of my property was amazing. Thank you very much Eugene and Jesus!

Eduardo and his crew were a joy to work with in doing very challenging exterior painting work on a vintage Tudor home in Wheat Ridge. The job verged on restoration work but they adapted and met all challenges involved with no cost overruns. They did not overmarket extra work, responded well to suggestions we had on certain parts of the job and the finished product is very good. I would hire them again in a heartbeat, and wished we'd hired them for inside painting which while OK was not up to par for professional class interior painting.

Nora was very responsive in answering my questions and was the first to show up to give us a bid on our reno house. We had 5 bids and her's was the lowest bid for exterior painting of a 3200 sq ft house. The crew showed up on time and worked till the job was completed. The did excellent work. Will use them again!

Michael, Alberto and crew were a pleasure to work with. Pricing was great. They fit me in the schedule and painted an exterior garage and several interior rooms on a quick turn. Communication was great -- I always new the status of the work. Everyone was careful inside and outside my home, and i'm very happy with the final results. I'd definitely call Michael and Homestar again, and welcome Alberto and crew back for future work.

I am so happy with the work that Jim has done for us. We had severe hail damage to our screens on our front porch and had removed ivy from our house that left damage to the exterior. He fixed everything, replaced the screens and painted the entire outside of our house. It looks beautiful, he was easy to work with and very professional. I will look no further the next time we need work done.

While the final project turned out very nice (exterior painting of our home) and Nora was very responsive and great to work with, there were some issues with the crew that were a little disappointing. I had to ask the crew to clean up debris that was left when they finished, and spots of paint were found on our patio furniture and on some of the door handles. We also have dogs, and the crew was not good about announcing when they had arrived and would open our gate without alerting us so we could bring our animals inside. There was also a worker that was coughing/hacking all day, was not wearing a mask (none of the crew wore masks or gloves, even when interacting with us), and left empty packs of Tamiflu in our yard, so clearly not well and should not have been working. This same worker also, when painting our front door and thus needing the door opened into our home, started smoking right outside the door and tried to hide the smoking when I asked him to put it out. Again, they did a good job, but I do not know that I would hire again.

After having used the same painting company for the past 10+ years I found they were no longer affordable, and I was a bit nervous about having to find another reliable, high quality company at a reasonable price. Imperial Painters quickly earned my trust and confidence. Alyssa spent a great deal of time with me during the estimate discussing options and explaining the work that needed to be done, which included some repair of the wood trim on our 108-year old brick home. The entire job included exterior painting, staining the deck and some interior touch ups. I am absolutely THRILLED with the painting job and the entire experience. The Production Manager Derek ensured that I had a crew that fit my expectations and needs. My crew leader, Jason, was extremely conscientious, communicative, reliable and professional. This is by far the best experience I have ever had in 18 years of hiring for home maintenance persons and companies. Additionally, the price we paid was the lowest of all the estimates I received—5 in total. Jason took great care with detail work that I imagine can be somewhat tedious, and the painters were conscientious about making sure the outside gates were closed to keep the dogs from slipping out (which has been a problem with other contractors). Imperial Painters are the embodiment of how a company should operate! Unfortunately it’s difficult these days to find contractors who value personal service, care about the customer and the job and demonstrate absolute integrity. Imperial does all of these, and I’m truly grateful for having found them.
