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 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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Very messy. Paint on floor, carpet and furniture. Asked to paint the AC intake air vent it I looks terrible. Could not open vent without scraping paint out of cracks so it would not stick together.

Avanzzo and the team did an amazing job painting my home. Rodrigo was very personable and on top of all our requests. He was very patient and supported us extremely well when we were selecting the paint color. The team was very dedicated and worked several hours to get the work done. We had a very pleasant surprise when we returned from vacation and the house was completely painted. Rodrigo was diligent and detailed oriented. I will hire Avanzzo painting services again in the future.

Painters were reliable and friendly. Did a decent job and had to do some extra painting due to Home Depot mixed the wrong paint. The only complaint is that they did not clean up throughly after the job was completed.

Super easy to communicate with about the project. Recommended fixing the cracks in the concrete before painting the driveway, and I couldn't be happier with the professional results. Very glad I listened to his advice and will likely hire again for more painting projects!

Bright Shield Painting Company just completed painting the exterior of our house. I'm not one to write a review but this one is well deserved. From start to finish Marcos and his team did an exceptional job. They were extremely reliable and went above and beyond! It is clear they love what they do as it shows in their work. The paint job completely transformed the look of our house and cannot stop admiring how beautiful it looks!!

I am super happy with the work provided by GH painting services. I hired Gustavo to paint all doors, trim, and floor boards in my home. Gustavo was very responsive, easy to communicate with, showed up on time, got the job done quickly and did excellent work. His price was very fair and everything was completed, exactly as we discussed. I have had many difficulties working with contractors on projects around my home so this painting project was a breath of fresh air! I would highly recommend Gustavo and will be using him for all of my future painting needs.

Excellent experience working with Juan and his crew to paint my entire house in Boca Raton. Juan was responsive from the moment I created my project on Thumbtack. They prepped, patches and painted the entire house within 3 days beginning to end, accommodated color and paint selections, and sent pics and videos throughout the process since I was out of town during the project. Highly recommend them and will use them again in a heartbeat!

He is affordable and works hard, does exactly what you agree on.

I needed them to paint urgently in a pinch. They delivered quickly, and then some. I cannot tell you how appreciative we are and how wonderful they are. I contacted them in the afternoon and needed them to paint same-day, and they made it happen! Great work! Nice people.
