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.

I have decided to hire them to paint the exterior of my home also and can’t wait to see the finished job🙂I just moved to Florida and so glad I had a great experience with the first company I had to hire.

Mike is a highly competent painter who provides excellent painting service and delivers maximum customer satisfaction. I was moving out of my previous residence and I had to get some paint job done so that I could get my security deposit back from the landlord. It was an emergency situation and I had only 1 day left till I my move-out date, so I contacted Mike for an urgent service request the night before. Mike was very prompt in his communication and he happily accommodated me in his schedule the very next morning. True to his word, Mike showed up exactly on time. Mike completed the paint job perfectly within such a short time and the end result was greatly impressive! From the beginning to the end of his visit, I could clearly tell that Mike is a very genuine and knowledgeable person in his profession. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking for a high quality painting service.

Not only did he do a fabulous paint job, he also installed and painted base moulding. I will be asking Rob to help with future projects as he is very skilled in many areas! Thank you, Rob!

John, the owner, is super nice and easy to deal with. He always made himself available via phone, text, and email and would respond promptly. The price was fair and the quality of the service impeccable. The head painter went out of his way to stay late to finish the interior rims of my doors for me so I would not have to take time off of work to be home for that. I love the colors that I chose and the quality of the paint really accentuates the boldness of the colors. I have received many compliments! I would highly recommend White Sands Industries for any painting services that you are looking to have completed.

I recently hired M&A to paint the exterior of my house. I was changing the color of the house and the trim. I got 4 bids from contractors and although they were the highest, I chose them primarily because Aurelia was the most professional and thorough of any of the others that quoted me a price. She told me exactly what they were going to do and how they were going to do it. When I asked her why her paint quantity estimate was such much higher then everyone else, she explained that they were going to apply two full coats by sprayer and roller. She ended up being spot on with the amount of paint needed. They showed up on the date we agreed to and were there at the time we discussed. They finished when they said they would and did a fantastic job. If you're looking for someone on the cheap, they might not be for you. If you're looking for a professional job from start to finish and something you'll feel good about when they are done, give them a call. I give M&A my highest recommendation!
