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.

This is my first experience hiring a painter. After being quoted a ridiculous price from one company, Marcos came along. He quoted me a reasonable rate. Little did I know, that he would be OUTSTANDING. On-time, informative and precise. If I have anything that needs painting, Km Painting is the first call I will make.

Juliano and his team are the best! We had some major damage from a leaky chimney and the roof making for a tricky painting job that they handled flawlessly. They were meticulous not only with the preps and painting but also with all the cleanup and putting furniture and art back in place. They always showed up on time and were very pleasant to have around (for 10 days). On top of all that the cost was extremely reasonable. They were well below some estimates I received. I highly, highly recommend them.

We initially hired Mister Painting for an interior job on an old apartment that was in need of some TLC. He and his crew made the place look new again. The work was clean and neat, he was punctual and very responsive to any issues that (inevitably) arise when dealing with such an old space. We were so pleased with his work that we decided to hire him for a SECOND job, this time painting the exterior of our home. Would highly recommend him. Pricing is reasonable, he’s incredibly nice and does great work. What’s not to like?

Arco Group renovated a 750 sq ft apartment we have. This included tiling, painting, installing flooring. Their price was very competitive and they were clean, neat and fast. We liked them so much, we hired them immediately for a second renovation in another home!

Kyle was answering my messages promptly and gave me a great quote. His business partners showed up on time and worked hard to complete the job in less time than I anticipated. They even did a second coat over some walls I had painted on my own. Offered to come back for any touch ups if needed as well. Highly recommend this company!!

Luis is a pleasure to work with. Not only he painted the walls in our house but he also put the basement floor tile in and saved our basement from some major flooding! He is very hard-working, humble, easy-going and responsive. Great value for the price paid. The only thing was that it took 2x longer than anticipated but overall, we're happy and planning on hiring him in the future again.

5 Stars all around. I can’t say enough great things about my experience with Tulio and his father. They were punctual, neat, communicative, and most of all professional. The attention to detail and the amazing job they did on painting the exterior of my home deserves 6 stars!!! I would highly, highly, highly recommend them to anyone. From the initial phone call to the last day on the job site they communicated every step of the way! We will, without a doubt, use them for future projects!!!

Jay and his team painted my entire townhouse and I’m really happy with it. Jay really understood my vision. The walls are nice and bright and the trim looks pristine. Thank goodness Jay knows all about finishes because I never considered that when I was choosing colors. He helped me choose the right finish for each area and it looks really good. I’ll probably hire him again to do touch ups or wallpaper. Overall I’m really happy with the final product.

Rome and his team did an AMAZING job on our new house. We hired Rome and his team to paint the full interior and to knock down a wall/create an open staircase to help with the flow of our new home. Rome was very easy to work with and him and his team got started right away. They made sure to finish the job before our move in date and we seriously couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I have recommended Rome to family and friends already and everyone has commented on how amazing his work is. As new home owners we have many upcoming projects and plan to hire Rome and his team for all of them. Looking forward to working with him again in the future
