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.

We paid to have our built in bookshelves painted. Once everything dried we noticed scratches, poor paint coverage, insides of cabinets not painted, underside of shelves not painted, hardware painted over. We will not use them again.

We needed to paint the front of our house. We live in a brick house and needed to paint the porch floor, ceiling, and house trim. Erick was responsive and fast. Would definitely recommend EJ Painting LLC!

L&G Contractor was able to meet my deadline and paint seven of my rooms in one day. The painting was well done, the workers polite, careful, and skilled, and the end product beautiful. The quoted price was extremely reasonable and included the paint! Would definitely work with this company again.

While I had a fine experience with Carlos the gentleman that came to get me an estimate, the final product is less than would be desired. Most importantly, the work was very sloppy - there are multiple splatters of paint in random spots, and A LOT of dried white paint on my non-white trim. At first I thought it was dust, but alas, it is dried paint! I also just found a big dried paint stain on my BRAND NEW carpet that I will have to scrub out (hopefully). The rest of the painting is just average, but the mess that was made it definitely a turn-off.

EJ and his team did a fabulous job painting the trim of my home. This was a very, very challenging job due to heights and the condition of the paint, but EJ and his team met the challenge head on. He was polite, on-time and professional throughout and at a reasonable price. Highly recommend hiring EJ Painting LLC.

Extremely professional and courteous with excellent communication. The quality of work was great and then went above and beyond (painting closets when that wasn't included). They also pick up the paint and extend their discount

We are having our first kid in May and chose to hire C&R to paint two rooms, after a thoughtful walkthrough. We love our home but now it’s truly become “ours” after some amazing painting and customizing work by the painting team. 10/10 would hire again!

Ricardo and his brother painted my bedroom. I provided them the paint label of the color I wanted and they picked up the paint from Home Depot, which was much appreciated. They came on short notice and finished painting the room in one day (walls, ceiling, trim, and doors). They were efficient, attentive to detail, and gave a very competitive price. I highly recommend their work to others looking for painters in the DC area. Thanks, Ricardo!

Hernan and his brother did an INCREDIBLE job painting my condo! They were right on time, worked quickly, and did perfect work.

Pristine seems to be a very professional organization. However, I do nothing the painting is one of its best services. The project manager, who also painted, is highly skilled in air quality and ventilation issues. But the painting services provided was quite poor. I had to point out very clear issues with the job, and even in the end I had to do significant patchwork.
