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 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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

DGL Painting was very friendly, professional and responsive. I am selling my house so it was paramount to get the job done per the recent inspection and DGL Painting delivered an amazing result. Upon re-inspection, the appraiser came back and before even finishing he said, "wow, this looks incredible." When he left, the house passed with flying colors. DGL greatly exceeded our expectations. My family is in the process of acquiring other properties and DGL is going to be our very first pick for Painting projects going forward. You will not be disappointed, you will be highly satisfied by using DGL Painting.

I hired Twin painters to paint my living room, dining room and 4 bedrooms. He arrived on time and did an amazing job. He was able to complete all 6 rooms in 2 days. Pricing was very affordable as my husband and I are first time homebuyers and couldn’t afford a lot. Work quality was impeccable and will hire for future paint jobs in my home.

Steven did an awesome job painting my house before tenants moved in. I'm not in the area, so it can be stressful to get work done without overseeing it. But Steven took care of everything. He even finished my project early. He made sure all the little things were taken care of after the project, like clean up, etc. Would definitely recommend Steven for any painting projects.

I contacted HRR HOME IMPROVEMENT LLC to get Master Bedroom, Kitchen, Dining room, Family room painted. Remi, the owner provided me with a very good price and scheduled me promptly. The guys were on time as scheduled. They were professional. Not some creepy goons working on your home. The paint job was perfect. (razor sharp lines, no splatters, they covered everything up to ensure cleanliness, they make sure you have a walk through before they leave and touch up things to your satisfaction. There were no sloppy roller marks on the wall, my walls look amazing. They had quality tools for the job. They work fast! The eco friendly paint was so worth it. It didn't smell like toxic paint. The painters are polite and reinstalled plates, blinds, closet doors back to where they were and made sure they closed properly prior to leaving. Again, the workers and Remi make sure the job is up to par from what you were expecting. I am so happy I found these guys. I'm definitely a customer for life!

Mr. Fernandes did an excellent job painting my bedroom and staircase risers. When I first reached out, I had tried painting these areas my self. I did a terrible job and was worried. He was prompt with my responses and offered to see the areas in person on the same day as my request. He explained the work he would do, the quality of paint he would use, and even gave me tips and a small demo on how I could personally touch up areas that I did not hire him for. He ensured that all the areas were cleaned well before he left my home. I wish I could have given him even more money because the outcome of his work felt like a blessing. The work was definitely worth every penny. I'd hire him again for future projects. Thank you.

Mr. Roger Silva is definitely the certified, professional, all around painter in the business who is very punctual, who has the desire, determination, motivation to delivered nothing but the best as a painter. His quotes are reasonable. I am very picky and selective because I like quality but after Roger and his crew painted my living room and Master bedroom I knew right then and there I would recommend him to others and rehired him again to paint both the interior and exterior of my dwelling. Roger and his team are diligent, has positive attitude, skillful and they cleanup after themselves. My experience with him was positive. Thumbs up Roger!!! Great Job!!! Much Blessing....
