Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How can I find out if a painter is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a painter is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, visit your local jurisdiction or state’s government website for information.

The CISA website also provides a helpful resource: Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page is intended for a national audience and includes 16 different categories of critical infrastructure sectors. Some jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure, but not all of them do.

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.

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.

Do painters offer remote or virtual services?

Though painting has always been an in-person job, painters may be willing to offer some virtual help due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If you come across painters’ profiles that state they offer remote services, message the painters to see what those services include.

How much value does painting add to a house?

Due to a lack of data available, it’s hard to say whether painting your home’s interior or exterior will increase its value. But there are some important things to keep in mind. 

If you're thinking about selling your home, you might want to repaint areas that look especially worn, dull or chipped so your house looks fresh and new to potential buyers. On the other hand, it’s possible some potential buyers will repaint the home upon moving in. So if you have a limited budget, your money (and time) might be better invested in other types of home projects, such as remodeling your bathroom or kitchen, installing new floors or fixing broken appliances

When in doubt, check with your realtor before making a final decision.

How often should you paint your walls?

You should repaint your home interior once every few years, depending on the condition of the current paint.

Paint on walls fades over time, regardless of the room — it could happen in a bedroom, kitchen, dining room, living room or bathroom. However, paint that is exposed to more dirt, particularly flat or matte paint textures, may need repainting more frequently.

Areas of the bathroom or kitchen that routinely get touched may show signs of collecting dirt and grease over time. These would require more frequent painting.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

Do you tip painters?

Yes, it’s best practice to tip house painters if you’re pleased with their work. Painters perform detailed, skilled work that can last for many years, if not decades. 

Tipping house painters is good etiquette. You can base the tip on the size of the crew, and request the amount to be evenly divided. Or, you can leave a tip based on the size of the job and leave it up to the foreman to decide how it is distributed among the crew. Sometimes — especially with big projects — the painters on the job change during the course of the project, so it’s often customary to leave one tip for the whole job.

How long does it take to paint a room?

The length of time it takes to paint a room varies, depending on a couple of factors. For example, the size of the job makes a difference. With a small bedroom, or with only a wall or two that have to be painted, the job can be done in half a day. Larger jobs take longer.

Also, if there are several different colors being used, the job may take longer, as one may have to dry before the other is applied. A 12-by-12 room with one color may take a morning. With multiple colors, the job may stretch into the afternoon.

Before you hire an interior painter near you, ask them how long it will take to paint the room(s) in your home.

Ninja painting was extremely easy to work with. Easy to get a hold of, stayed in communication throughout the entire project, offered advice and assistance, willing to do more than was originally quoted and did I mention the painting looks perfect?? Highly recommended!

We had three rooms painted and are super happy with the results! Gilbert was very professional and helpful, he even offered to help with paint color selection. They finished the job in one day and it looks amazing! I would definitely hire them again for future projects.

Carlos and his wife were wonderful. They showed up when they said they would, were polite and helpful, did excellent work and were a great value. We discovered some paint smears on the floor after they left and they returned the next day and scrubbed the floor. I will use them again.

Felipe was phenomenal!!! We live out of state and have an investment property we are getting ready to sell. I requested quotes and he IMMEDIATELY reached out to me and gave me a quote sight unseen. He did match a slightly lower quote we got which pleased me since I got a very good feeling about him when we spoke on the phone the first time. My instinct was that he was very professional and responsive and he is. He found some additional areas that needed to be painted once he got there and gave us a VERY reasonable quote to paint/fix those areas of the ceilings. He also had to peel some wallpaper that hadn’t been removed and he didn’t charge us any extra. I’ve yet to see the job in person yet but he has been sending me before and after pictures and my husband and I are both VERY pleased!!! He has been in constant contact with me and was able to do this job within a few days of sending me the quote knowing that time was of the essence since we are trying to sell. I would HIGHLY recommend both this company and Felipe!!! We will definitely be using him again to paint our other condo down there. We lucked out since we were doing this from out of state. So grateful for the work, professionalism, cost and speed at which he was able to complete the job for us. THANK YOU!!! Laura Hobbs

I feel like we really lucked up with Nestor. He is trustworthy, professional, nice, extremely detail oriented and fast. He truly takes pride in his work. My husband and I were amazed how quick he painted the rooms in our new home. He was doing such an amazing job we asked him to removed popcorn ceilings and he had them down in a day. His rates are fair. I highly recommend Nestor. It's been a pleasure working with him.
