Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.
