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.

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.

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.

Excellent painting work

John did an amazing job painting my home! We hired J&T Painting Plus to paint our entire home, including our kitchen cabinets. John and his partner were a pleasure to work with and were very professional. They showed up as promised and finished the job on time, and the paint job is beautiful. I couldn't be happier. We will be calling J&T again for all of our future paint jobs. These are the best painters I have worked with in Tallahassee. Thank you, John!

The owner of the company, Jorge, is a consummate professional! He accomplished everything he promised, and in record time. I needed the interior of my newly purchased home painted in 1 and 1/2 days, prior to carpet being laid and the movers arriving with our furniture. Jorge promised me this could be done with no problems. We met and I gave him my color choices and he picked up the paint and the house looks like a brand new home! He uses quality paints (Sherwin Williams) and brushes, and the painters are experts at what they do! I couldn't be happier, and already have plans to have him come and do more work for us. He is a AMAZING!

DO NOT WAST YOUR TIME Painter showed on time (9am) walked through areas to be painted and left. Company said he’d be back at 6pm, which he did with another painter. Both immediately left to get equipment and never returned. Company thought they were at the house painting. Said would have them there at 9am next morning. No show. Received message from company that they couldn’t contact painters, but had arranged for different painters to be there at 10am next morning. Early next morning was told painter not coming. Asked to come on Saturday because they want to be there with the painter. Agreed and on Friday night confirmed they and painter still coming. 30 minutes after agreed time receive text company rep is just down the street and painter on the way. 30 minutes after that no no one has arrived. Sent text that will use a different company. So I spent 6 days working with them and not a drop of paint is on the walls.

I had all my walls painted and my brown doors and trim changed to white, it was a big undertaking and they never complained. I'm very nit picky but no matter what I found, they fixed it until I was pleased with it. I was treated with respect and courtesy and that's hard to find these days.

We hired the Elzys to paint the interior of 2 Tallahassee homes with very high vaulted ceilings in living rooms, and covering a very dark color with off-white colors. The cost was very reasonable, We found the Elzys provided professional and reliable and careful work. We are very happy with the results, and plan to use their services again. Thank you Divine Hands!

Absolutely outstanding in every way. Great price, great work, very efficient. Finished the entire exterior painting job in a day and a half. So easy to work with and communicated everything he needed from us. Everything was completely professional and excellent quality. In this day and age, finding someone as good as Jorge is very rare. I would recommend him and his company to anyone.

Jorge was budget, on time, and on top when it comes to quality of work. We has the complete exterior of the house painted and once we saw the quality of work that was being completed, contracted for many additional services. I cannot overemphasis how pleased I am with the work that was completed. I cannot recommend him enough. He was friendly, professional, and went above and beyond what was asked.

They work very hard and continuous without breaks. I had to insist that they drink bottled water. They were friendly. We had all doors, frames and trim work done inside home, garage painted including inside of windows, 2 columns on front porch plus the shutters outdoors. It looks so clean. I do not regret choice I made after interviewing them. JS Handyman does other handy work, too, if needed.

Mr. Elzy at Divine Hands Handyman Services was excellent. The services he provided were better than I expected. He came out to look at the space and provide a more accurate quote, which was wonderful because there were no surprises in the cost at the end of the job. He was also very accurate with time and finished in a timely manner. What I like most about Mr. Elzy and Divine Hands Handyman Services is that they respected my home. He handled my furniture, paintings, and floors with care. There was no mess to clean afterward. I would recommend Divine Hand Handyman Services, and I will certainly use them again.
