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.

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 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.

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.

Proffix did a fantastic job on our interior paint job! I had been wanting to paint our bedroom for a long time but knew it would take me at least two days and a ton of frustration to get it done, and they not only gave me a competitive quote within minutes, but were able to get me on their schedule within two days! They did an amazing job (painting anything white is miserable), and I’m SO glad I hired them.

We reached out to Felipe for an estimate on interior and exterior house painting. From the time I contacted him to the time he left the house, he was very responsive to my questions and professional. Felipe was punctual in providing the estimate and answered every question I had.

Dmitry and his team were wonderful. They painted the interior of my home, including all the trim, in two days. They were efficient and very thorough. They had a quality assurance system in place where they checked each other's work for any imperfections and made sure everything was perfect. They were great to work with and I would definitely hire them again if I ever needed any other painting done.

Hello, I’m very happy to share a great experience. Too many times a company is hired to perform a service and what they promised was not delivered. We were looking for a paint company to paint the interior of our home. We had several estimates with similar prices. But we were looking for someone that could do the job and also truly care for the project they were doing. We settled on Perfect Tone Painting. From the moment Daniel and his team member arrived they were pleasant, professional and friendly. He promised to get the job started as soon as possible, which he did and kept the job within the duration promised. From the moment they hit our door they were professional and genuine. Daniel took us through our home and explained the scope of work in detail. The crew’s professionalism, courteousness, communication and willingness to keep us informed throughout the project was excellent. They were very organized, did a great cleanup and did a beautiful paint job!!! Most important, they always smiled, were positive and friendly. Mr and Mrs Fernandez-Orengo

We hired Nestor to paint the entire interior of our 2,000 square foot house which included: retexturing and painting 2-3 ceilings, removing wallpaper, and texturing 2 rooms to match pre-existing texture. In a few places a stain caused more than the agreed upon two coats to be needed and the texturing of one of the ceilings had to be redone done to more closely match the existing texture. In all of those cases Nestor did not try to increase the cost or talk me out of doing it. If I wasn't satisfied, he wasn't either. In addition this was a multi-part job because we didn't want to paint the kitchen until after we rehabbed and shifted our cabinets. Nestor worked around our schedule and came back when we needed him. It took a day just to remove the wall paper and they worked right through lunch. I was very impressed by the work ethic and positive demeanor of the entire crew. I felt comfortable leaving him in my house unsupervised and even gave him a door code so he could work when we were not there. He was honest and communicated in everything he did. I recommend him whole heartedly.
