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. 

If you’re thinking about getting your home painted, contact the best exterior painters near you to ask questions and get free estimates.

Can I paint my own house exterior?

While you may choose to paint a door, ground-level window trim and other parts of your house’s exterior, it’s really a job best left to the professionals. One of the main reasons is experience. An experienced painter knows how to handle the prep work, spot problems and identify sources of future trouble, all while getting the job done more efficiently. They are also experienced with spending long hours on tall ladders. If you want high-quality work, it’s best to hire a professional painter near you

We hired I Paint USA to paint the exterior of our home a couple months ago and we couldn't be happier with the end result. We were having a party in less than two weeks and asked if they could have the project completed prior to that time. Marcelo was extremely accommodating and he and his crew were able to start the following week. In three short days they were able to pressure clean and pretreat the exterior, fix any cracks and cosmetic imperfections, prime and paint the larger areas, paint the trim in a contrasting color, and paint four exterior doors and the metal window frames black. They used high quality exterior paint from Sherman Williams with a 30 year warranty. The price was very fair, especially for the quality of the work they did. I would recommend them to my friends and family without hesitation. I am very happy that we chose I Paint USA for the job!

Great service from beginning to end. Reasonably priced for removing bahama shutters, power washing exterior of house and pool patio area and then painting entire exterior. Got the job done in less than a week. Would highly recommend.

Extremely happy with their work. The exterior painting of the house came out even better than expected. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to my friends and family. They’re easy to work with and with great integrity which is tough to find these days.

I hired William to Paint the exterior of my house and he went above and beyond to get the job done. The wife and I are both very happy with the final product. Have already recommended him to 3 people and it’s only been hours since he finished with the house.

Earl (owner) was a pleasure to work with. He is very friendly and communicates well, and his prices are affordable. He painted my entire house exterior of 2,000 sq ft, including the driveway, walkways, and overhangs, and didn't miss a single detail. I will definitely hire again for my next project - it's beautiful! Thank you Earl!!

The end result was ok but I’m definitely not happy with this company. Took over a month to finish painting the exterior of my house. Everything was painted over without fixing the walls. I had to tell them to fix the walls and repaint as planned. I had to constantly ask to fix and repaint or retouch the areas that were not done well. They left stains all over that they were supposed to remove. Even that part was not done well and I had to do it myself. Regular trash was thrown in the recycle bin and was never removed as promised. Overall messy and not very professional work. There was a young crew doing the job. They were nice but not supervised as they should have. Would not recommend, would not re-hire.
