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.

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Cape Coral painters
Debra C.
I cannot say enough about the incredible paint job that Nikity Painting supplied for us. We had the exterior of the house painted. Paula walked patiently through the process with us. She helped us pick our colors and the provided samples that she put on the house to make sure we were happy with the colors that we had chosen. All the cracks were filled, chipped paint was sanded down and they pulled the dirt away from the foundation so they could paint below the dirt and rock line. Then they painted on a sealer and 2 coats of paint. The price was more than fair and I absolutely love the finished product. Thank you Nikity Painting!

Interior Painting of Family Room. They did an excellent job and offered suggestions that led us to painting our Kitchen. Both Palau her husband Luis and their co-worker were excellent. They mover furniture, cleaned and offered to vacuum the entire area they painted. You could not have found a better Company. Terry A. Brown

EDU LLC Painting was on time and professional. They were so quiet there was a point my wife and I thought we missed that they may have step out for lunch. I went to the room and they were Painting. Then Eduardo returned and escorted me to the room to discuss any issues with their work. I found no issues and then I discussed the next room I wanted him to paint, which again I thought his price including the paint was extremely fair. I can see no reason to change Painting company's and expect them to paint the entire interior. I like that Eduardo doesn't have a salesman pitch and doesn't try to do more work than what I want to do. Finding anyone honest, fair and trustworthy is a hard thing to do these days but I found them.

JMB did a great job on painting the interior and exterior and pool deck of my home. Great attention to detail and work quality. Had a couple of additional things to paint and they did it no extra charge. Even helped me put up a ceiling fan while waiting for rain to stop. I would definitely recommend them for any of your painting and pressure washing needs.

I am very pleased with everything done from the responsiveness of the quote request, to the starting on the pre determined start date, to the completion of the project. Everyone on the cleaning and painting team was very courteous and professional. They did a good job covering up what didn’t get painted and cleaning up after painting. They were all a try joy to work with and I would highly recommend them.

This company was thorough and detailed in their proposal to paint the all woodwork, ceilings and walls in our 1969 home. Painted the A/C vents in ceilings too. Nice work. Excellent follow-up and fairly priced. I'd use them again.

I hired them to paint the interior of my house and their quote was the lowest and very detailed. They used Benjamin Moore paints just like they stated and did 2 full coats, the best part is after the job was done they went around with a cloth cleaning up any marks on the molding and tile. Would definitely use them again.

My house came out beautifully and I’m very happy with the paint job they did. However, the team left tape and debris throughout my lawn. They also got paint in multiple areas of my grass and driveway. Lastly, the team took an additional day than what was previously discussed. Other than that I love the finished product.

I originally choose Nikity painting to paint the exterior of my home. I was happy with the responsiveness of Paula and the quote I was given. The exterior turned out nicely other than a few minor issues that I did not mention as I was able to clean up myself. A month later, I went with Nikity painting again, this time to paint the interior of my home but I did not receive the same quality of work. While trying to set up a time for the project to start, responses weren't as quick as before and I had to ask multiple time for a start date. I left town to allow them the space to paint (I *DO* trust Paula and her crew in my home without me being there). Upon arriving back home, I was disappointed to see the job that was done. There was paint on the white door trim and cabinets, over spray on appliances, vents above the doors were installed upside down and all three had wall paint on them, multiple spots on the walls were not completely painted, runs on the walls, outlet covers were mismatched, and a outdoor hose sprayer was covered in white paint and left broken with the water running. I brought this up to Paula and she was quick to respond and apologetic and wanted to make it right. She sent me a message saying she would be over "before lunchtime for sure" It wasn't until after 1pm that I received a message saying that she's still coming over, but it wouldn't be until later in the day (around 230). We had to reschedule for the next day due to a work schedule conflict. Paula came over the next day to fix the problems and replace the hose sprayer. After they left from fixing the errors, my wife noticed there were still problems from the original issues that were only half fixed (not all paint on trim was repainted and runs on the wall from repainting). This is something that I did not bring up to her as it was able to correct by us. Paula and crew are very nice and respectful. I'm not sure what happened from the first job to the second...maybe overwhelmed with work?

We hired Quality VIP Multi Services to paint the inside of our home and to install epoxy on our garage floor. We couldn't be more pleased. They are committed to doing the best job possible. What impressed us the most was their attention to detail. I know there are many fine companies that do painting and install epoxy, but we are convinced we hired the best of the best.
