Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Should I pressure wash my house before painting?

Pressure washing your siding before painting is an efficient way to clean your house in preparation for receiving new paint. However, it must be done correctly to avoid causing water damage or damaging the siding itself. 

Depending on the PSI rating of your washer, you should stand far away enough from your house to avoid removing paint or etching into the siding itself. Also avoid injecting water behind the siding, which typically occurs when spraying upwards at a low angle. 

When in doubt, consider hiring a pressure washer near you before your painter paints your home’s exterior. Or, contact the best painters near you to see if they offer pressure washing services as well.

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.

We had several professionals provide us with an estimate for exterior painting of our house. Elite PRO Painting was competitively priced, punctual, and great to work with. They were friendly, explained the process, and were responsive to all questions. I’ve had exterior painting done in the past on previous houses, and no one has been more respectful of the property or done such thorough clean up after the job was finished. My husband and I are so happy with the quality of the work Elite PRO did, we would use them again in a heartbeat. We made the right decision using Elite PRO.

Jeff and his son did an extremely professional and all around high quality job with re-painting the exterior of my home. Jeff brings a wealth of knowledge and an attitude to add the most value possible, while also understanding how to stay on a budget. He not only worked with me to find the perfect color, but did extensive prep work to repair some minor blemishes and wood rot all around the exterior. I highly recommend that you reach out to Jeff for any painting project!!

Taylor’s A+ Painting Review: Let me start off by saying that this company’s rating for us is A+++! We were looking for someone who got not only a good reputation on their reviews but someone who delivers the end result as excellent as how good the reviews were. Taylor & his team have good camaraderie. That alone speaks highly of them. True enough!! They did work diligently & professionally on our home exterior painting. They worked for 5 days making sure the prepping, pressure washing, caulking & exterior painting were done meticulously & without shortcuts — the quality of service we were definitely looking for. The type of paint they used is of high quality! The finished product of our home left us with 100% satisfaction! Their price point is competitive & fair. Taylor knows his craft so well, he is so detailed & explained every step of the process clearly. He will work with you on your specifics/requests. That meant a lot to us. We’ve scouted 3 painting co. and glad to have decided to choose them. They left us with good impression & a beautiful home exterior painting that we are confident will last for the next 8-10 years! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND them and we will definitely hire them again on our next home painting project!!

Juan power washed the entire house and painted the entrance door. He came back the next day to paint the exterior. Professional, flexible, pleasant to work with, he knows his stuff, he tells the pros and cons and consequences if you do this and that. The quality is outstanding. My realtor stopped by to see the house and was also very impressed. Thank you Juan

This was my first time using Thumbtack and I was not disappointed. I had a quick response and chose Luis. It was a small exterior paint job that required attention to detail because the HOA was watching. I supplied the paint he brought everything else needed to get the work done. He did a beautiful job. I am glad I found a painter I would use again.

Prime Touch Improvements certainly live up to their name! Rodney and his team did a fantastic job painting my home’s exterior trimming and front door. They were very accommodating as they were able to squeeze my job in during the holidays. I mostly appreciated the quality of professionalism. They arrived on time, worked throughout the day, and completed the job to my complete satisfaction! I would definitely use Prime Touch Improvements for both painting and home improvements again and recommend them to anyone!

Juan and his team were fast, friendly and paid attention to every detail. We had our entire exterior and interior painted within 7 days. He was great about communicating along the way and his prices are amazing. I have already recommended him to a few of my friends in the neighborhood and would do so for anyone who asks!

Since the moment they came by the house to do an estimate, I felt instantly comfortable and confident that they were the right fit. I expressed how I wanted to paint the exterior of the House and they delivered. Even when I was feeling nervous for such a big decision, they made me feel comfortable and the results were beautiful, thank you! Claudio showed up every day on time and worked diligently, not missing one detail.

My wife and I just bought our first home and already it needed serious work, especially on the paint. We were in a dilemma because we are both students and having spent majority of our savings on the house purchase, we were not sure if we would have enough capital to cover a new paint job (interior and exterior). Rafael from IGI Home Renovations was a God-sent to us. His asking price was beyond accommodating, and he was willing to match and even beat the price of his competitors to win our business. But the most impressive aspect of Rafael and his team was how quickly and efficiently they completed the paint job. To give you some perspective, I own a 4/2 with a 3-car garage, Mr. Rafael and his team completed the painting of both exterior and interior of my house in under two weeks. Please understand, this was by no means a rushed job; their attention to details was outstanding and the quality of their work speaks more volume than I can give credit. His professionalism and humility made me feel more certain about my selection. I would not hesitate to refer him to family and friends in need of new house paint or any renovation projects; I know I would be consulting his services in the new future as I already have many projects lined up for my new home. For your convenience I have added some before and after photos. Thank you for reading.

The paint in the exterior of our home was in need of updating. Hubby and I decided to make it a priority this year. We received several quotes and decided to proceed with IGI Home Renovations. Rafael was prompt for our appointment and really knew what he was talking about. His crew just completed our home and both men were friendly and respectful of our property. Most importantly they did an amazing job! We also had the sidewalk and driveway pressure washed as well. Although they are extremely old, they look 1000x better than they did. We are going to need to have the interior painted to match the amazing outside and we will be reaching out again! Thanks so much!
