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.

Reviews for Highland painters

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.

Erick and Alfredo did a great job painting our interior. They were always contactable when needed. As a former General Contractor, I would recommend "Galindo Exterior Painting LLC", for all your painting needs.

I had a good experience with Fresh Look Painting and I would be willing to recommend them to anyone I know who needs interior paint work done. Eduardo was prompt and got the job done in one day. He was quick to respond to texts and calls. And the painting quality was good. When they were done, we walked through together looking for areas that needed touch-ups, and very few did. I enjoy my new walls, and I am glad that I hired Fresh Look Painting to paint them.

Mike and the PSI team executed the hand-paint project perfectly, and in a timely manor. I would recommend them to anyone in the Denver area for a mural/paint project.

The painting was great but I don't appreciate that they used the bathtub to rinse everything then didn't clean the bathtub out so I now have paint stained all over it.

We had a great experience with Exemplary Painting. Their price was very reasonable and they were able to start painting 5 days after bidding the project and finish our 1600 SF condo (walls only) prior to us moving in. Their work was really clean (no paint spots anywhere) and the paint lines along the trim and the ceiling were great! We will definitely call them to come out for any additional projects and highly recommend them.

Eugene was the absolute best to work with - responsive, timely, and very cost competitive. I had him paint a black wall and it turned out perfect, which I feel is tricky with a dark color! I will hire Irish Pro Painting for all of my future painting needs. Plus, he's Irish! :)

I hired Steve to paint an accent wall in our living room, and he did a fantastic job painting it. I then rehired him to paint an accent wall in our master bedroom and bathroom, and he again did a great job. I'll most likely be hiring him again for future projects.

the house looks pretty good minus some attention to detail. They left a lot of paint chips on the ground and didn't even attempt to clean the chips off my roof. Some paint globs that were scraped off on to my porch, they just painted over and they chip off easily leaving a bare spot. No respect of personal property. They used the My latter that was in my back yard, and got paint on it. When cleaning out one of their paint buckets, they splattered watered down paint all over my brand new custom picnic table and concrete patio. I had to call them back out to clean it off and it still wont come off my picnic table. Now I'm wondering who's going to pay to re-stain my table. Would not recommend them to anyone.

They painted over some horrible wood panneling and it looks much better than it did. However, there was paint of my wood trim, paint on my carpet and some on my door handles. I also think some parts needed a second coat becasue I can see where there was calk used to patch holes. I'll probabaly go over it myself.

We had a great experience with JM Painting! They were able to start on our exterior painting job (garage and carriage house) right away and finished up exactly on time. They did a fantastic job working with us on the many colors we wanted for various parts of the buildings and they color matched our stucco perfectly. I highly recommend JM Painting and we will definitely use them again!

I needed a condo painted quickly before new tenants arrived and Nabil was quick to respond and get the work done. He was very affordable for the work performed. He even painted a built in book shelf that I was not expecting to be done. And he was able to cover up poor painting jobs from previous tenants hitting the ceilings in the corners. Great job! I would highly recommend.
