Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost to hire an interior painter ranges between $200-$2,700. Interior painters can tackle everything from complete color makeovers in each of your rooms to touching up an accent wall to painting pieces of furniture. The square footage and complexity of the project, along with the materials needed, are the main factors that will affect cost. Other factors include whether you supply the paint yourself or want the painter to do so, whether you move the furniture and do the prep work or ask them to do it, and whether any repair work is needed on the walls.

Painting the ceiling and the trim will also have an effect on cost. The type of paint you choose can also raise or lower your house painting cost. A gallon of paint may range from $20 to over $100, depending on quality and brand. Ask your painter if they charge per hour or per square foot, and how much you can save by doing prep work (moving furniture, etc.) yourself.

How much should interior painting cost per square foot?

You can expect a 12x12-foot average room with 8-foot ceilings to cost $100 to paint, while a 16x16-foot room with 9-foot ceilings could cost around $175. 

To calculate the cost of interior painting per square foot, measure the square footage of wall space and ceiling space of your room. From this, you can estimate the number of gallons of paint needed to cover the wall space and compare it to these figures. You can also ask interior painters near you to provide an estimate before you hire them.

How much does it cost to paint the interior of a house?

Interior house painting costs are calculated on a few key factors. Nationally, interior house painting projects range from $917 (for one room) to $4,893 (for eight rooms). The wide price range indicates how much square footage, paint selection and labor can affect cost. One pro uses a laser to measure each room, subtracting the size of the doors and windows, and then bases the quote on the square footage of the actual surfaces to be painted.

Painters may provide you with savings if you opt to paint your entire home rather than just having one room or an accent wall painted. For example, the average house painting cost for an 8x12 room with 8-foot ceilings is roughly $200, when contractor-grade paint is used. Painting ceilings, baseboards and frames can also affect cost. Pros may charge per linear foot to smooth and paint baseboards.

In one area, pros might charge 50 cents per linear foot to paint baseboards, while pros in another part of the country could charge $1.50 per linear foot for the same task. Painters may charge flat rates for painting door and window frames, with one charging $20-$25 and another $60 per door. Geography and regional costs to do business play a major role in the cost of interior painting. The same painter in a rural region has less to pay in taxes, transportation, insurance and overhead than they would in a major city like New York.

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 much do interior painters charge per hour?

You can expect to pay $50 per hour for interior painting. This price will change depending on a number of factors and may range between $30 and $160 per hour. Some factors include the height of the rooms, the complexity of the painting and more.

For an accurate cost estimate, request quotes from local painters and contractors.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Reviews for Tamarac painters
Kelly B.
I hired Miami Painting services to paint two rooms. They were very responsive and helpful however the overall paint job was messy. They didn’t tape ceiling areas or moldings and I found specs of paint everywhere. Even on my cabinets I had painted a few days before. Initially the paint job looked ok but now I realize lines are uneven.

Paolo is a hard worker and very professional. However, he lacks experience about painting. He did not paint inside the windows and left paint stains on the carpet.

LLC was absolutely the best paint job I have ever had. I usually do my own painting. They were clean,not one drop of paint on furniture or rugs. Wonderful. I would highly suggest they hire them for any painting job. Sincerely,Nancy

The quality of work was not good. We agreed on white paint to cover the previous blue paint. However, when they completed job, I could still see blue paint peeking through. Also, they didn't tape off outlets properly and cover necessary appliances. Paint was sprayed all over my counter top and stove. Lastly, they couldn't estimate how much paint they would need for the job so I kept having to run to store to buy more paint. In my opinion, they are not professional painters but handyman painters. Just my honest review, no disrespect intended.

Karen was excellent. She offered a very fair and reasonable price quote for an exterior paint job and roof. The end result was spectacular! Wow, what a transformation. 360 painting used very high quality paint (Sherman Williams), and she was able to match the paint color to exactly the color scheme that I wanted. I’ve hired several painters on different projects before, and this was by far the best job and best quality that I’ve ever had. Kudos to 360 painting. Great job!!

I couldn't be happier with my experience with 360 Painting. Karen and her team are professional, punctual and detail oriented. I had the exterior of my home painted last year and have never received so many compliments. Karen gave me good advice when prompted, but was otherwise very respectful of my ideas and brought them to life beautifully. For any painting needs, do not hesitate to contact 360 Painting !

Paint job was good but the carpet was flipped over in the garage that hid the spilled paint. If they cleaned it before leaving the job the rating would have been 4 stars. Yvonne W

While I am happy that they didn’t get any paint on the new floors and I like the new neutral color, there is cracking and flaking paint that they just painted over. My husband hates this and now I have to spend more money to find someone that can fix this before we list our house.

I originally hired Angel to paint a small portion on my ceiling. Angel was friendly and courteous and did an excellent job on my ceiling. I immediately thought of Angel when I needed to paint my interior doors. Once again, Angel proved to be friendly, efficient, and extremely meticulous. I will hire him again for painting and Powerwashing.
