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.

Demetrio was probably the best contractor that I’ve worked with in terms of fast, reliable communication. Questions were always thoroughly answered within minutes. Our exterior home painting project was a little different than some. We did not want the eaves, gutters and downspouts painted. But everything else. So it required meticulous covering and protection to avoid from overspray while painting. There were no spills or mess created during the week long project. The exterior painting project was virtually flawless and our home is absolutely beautiful. One area required a little more attention and Demetrio responded quickly to resolve. In the end, I could not be any more satisfied with the quality of work, work ethic, and friendly communications. First-rate experience with Demetrio, his team, and with Thumbtack. If I need future painting, Demetrio will be who I call!

Very responsive. I put in a request for an estimate late at night, and he was able to come out the next day to paint our exterior doors. The doors look great, and now we are looking at other misc jobs in the house we might be able to hire them for. :)

Levan and his crew of painters (2) gentlemen were the quintessential pros! From the time I posted the project and received a response almost immediately to the final walk through around my house to view the exterior paint job, so nice to work with professionals that treat your house like their own! I had some concerns about my screens (dirty and old) and asked it they could remove them so the windows would benefit from the pressure washing in prepping for painting and it was a very last minute request Levan responded within minutes and said “no problem”. House looks great and it is a two story! He got the paint and they were done from start to finish in just under 2 days! Amazed and very pleased! I highly recommend US Painting for your painting needs! I will be calling on Levan for the interior paint job!

Let me just say that Nico is one of the best painters that I’ve come across. He painted the exterior of my home and he did an excellent job always accommodating to my schedule. He went above and beyond and even painted the porch at no extra cost. He’s very trustworthy and very easy to work with. I can not recommend him enough. As a busy mom, I wanted to have someone that I could trust. I was glad that I found it. Thanks!

I had a painter I used for years and was originally nervous to try somebody knew. Patricio and his crew were amazing. The nicest and hard working people They painted the exterior of my house and did an excellent job. They took exceptional care to wrap/tape everything off to protect area that weren't getting painted. These are professional painters who have a lot of experience and knowledge. These guys really know how to paint and they do it so well. I'm very happy with their work and plan on using them for future painting projects. And I'm recommending them to anybody who needs painters. I believe they are already going to work on my neighbors house. After she saw how great ofa job they did she wanted them to go her house.
