Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How often should you paint your house's exterior?

Expert opinion is mixed, but the general range is five to 10 years. However, this depends on many factors. Houses in harsh climates with extreme temperatures, lots of dust or ice or intense sunlight may need more frequent paint jobs than those in temperate climates. Also, wood houses will need new paint more often due to the changes within the wood itself. You should also consider painting the outside of your house if you plan to sell it.

What is the best exterior house paint?

Acrylic paints are generally considered good options for today’s home exterior paint jobs. You can also choose an oil-based or latex (water-based) paint. Also, look into specialty paints for your doors, roof, gutters, siding and other exterior surfaces.

What colors should I paint my house exterior?

You have many options when it comes to paint colors. For example, an off-white creates a traditional look, and it looks great with a bright door to contrast it. Yellow is a happy color that, while light blue is reminiscent of an oceanfront style. Gray houses are also on trend, providing a classy and neutral tone that remains warm and inviting.

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.

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.

What questions should I ask an exterior painter?

While painters’ online profiles provide helpful customer reviews and other information, it’s still important to ask the right questions. Ask whether they have sufficient workman’s compensation insurance to cover any injuries to avoid any potential financial liability. Get in writing the preparatory steps the painter takes to get the house ready for painting — simply painting on top of compromised paint won’t work. And does the work include a warranty? If the paint starts to fade, peel or crack soon after completion, you’ll want recourse.

How long does it take to paint a home’s exterior?

Painting a house exterior generally takes three to five days. The first day consists of cleaning away dirt, dust, loose paint, pollen, mildew and other surface contaminants. This must dry completely. The second day — and it could be more than just a day, depending on the condition of the house — is for preparation like stripping, sanding and priming. The next two to three days are for painting.

Is it worth it to hire a painter to paint my house's exterior?

It is nearly always worth it to hire a painter to paint your home’s exterior. While you may feel comfortable painting a small, one-story home, anything with multiple stories, dormers or other complexities are best left to a pro.

Additionally, it’s best to let the pros handle older homes. Any time extensive prep work is needed — such as repairing chipping, bubbling, cracking or peeling paint, or fixing caulking and substrate issues — a pro can  handle it.

Dan W.
I had received estimates from about 5 painters to paint the exterior of my house, and for one reason or another I was not completely happy with any of them. As a last resort I went onto Thumbtack to try my luck there, and among the responses that I got, ProEdge painters stood out from the rest. I sent them a few questions by email and they immediately responded, so I decided to give them a call and set up an appointment for them to come over and give me an estimate. JC from ProEdge came over the next morning and walked around my house to take a look. He was very knowledgeable and professional, answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have areas over my screen enclosure that is difficult to clean and paint. Other painters told me they would have to remove the screen, but JC told me it would be no problem to leave the screens in place. He also had no problem using the specific brand of paint that I asked for. Our house is not easy to paint -- we have 21 windows, 6 set of sliders, and 9 doors including the large garage door. JC wrote up an estimate before leaving, explaining all of the options, at a very reasonable and fair price. I had a short discussion with my wife and almost immediately decided to hire him. Despite some permitting issues with the city that I live in, JC was able to begin painting the following week. He estimated it would take 3 days. The first day he and his crew power washed the entire house and did the patch work. He spent the next 2 days doing the actual painting but was not quite done at that point, so he spent most of the 4th day going around making sure that everything was perfect, cleaned up, and left the way that he found it. Even though I live in central Palm Beach county and JC works out of South Broward, he showed up close to 8AM every morning and worked all day. I have to say that I'm extremely satisfied with the work that ProEdge painters did. The house looks fantastic and I've received a lot of compliments from my neighbors. I won't hesitate to recommend them in the future.
