I hired Felipe to repair a drywall hole in my ceiling that had been cut out due to plumbing issues. He was able to come the next day and was on time, and even showed up a few minutes early. His price was very reasonable and he did an excellent job! He repaired the dry wall and painted over it after it had dried. The job was done so well that no one would even know that there was once a hole there. I am planning to paint multiple rooms in my home and will certainly be calling Felipe for the job. I would highly recommend!

Our gutters are full and it would take 1 hour 30 minutes to finish cleaning for something Jeff and Chelsea estimated for 30 minutes job but they took only the amount of money they estimated initially of 30 minutes work. Chelsea and Jeff are kind and professional people that I can trust working on my house for a reasonable price and quality job. I plan to continue working with them for many years to come! Thank you.

This was our first time hiring off thumbtack. Was very happy witj how quickly people started to respond. We had 4 people come ou and give quotes for tile backsplach and interior paint. We ultimately chose express painting for his knowledge and quick responses. I cant stand someone who doesn't return my calls. We are pleased with the house. One cause i didnt have to do it and two the price and it came out nicely. My only compalints with express painting are how they rush through. I was disappointed when i came hkme the first day to hear they were wrapping up and in my opinion it wasnt done. Lots of rushed and missing areas and old paint bleeding through. We spoke to the guys there and they had already put up most of the stuff. We explained to them that we were not happy and touch ups needed to be done. They called kris and he called us back right away and we explained how some parts were missing and he agreed to make them do it. I hated to watch them pack up but they said they had somewhere else to be. As we walked through the house with open eyes as they started to work again we noticed so much more. Corners that hadnt been repaired like we discussed. We told the main guy and you could see he wasnt happy as they knew fixing it would require them to come back to paint. We called kris who did not answer twice. We then sent a text messgae and he said he couldnt call right now but called his worker right in front of us. So i was a little disappointed about that. He then called us and i explained i didn't want to be rushed in the repairs wr felt like we needed to make. I mean we just spent 1150 on paint. I wanted it right. He assured me he wasnt rushing hut didnt wanna come back 6 times for touch ups which threw me off. I wa shoping to hear that he wanted it right. He told us to use blue tape and marl the areas of disappointment and they would return the next day to fix it. We spent time and did just that. They came and as i got home were wrapping up again. 98% of things were done. Still a few places werent fixed but we are getting carpet next week so we can paint the places oursleves at that time in case the carpet people make an scuffs. I would recommend him just remind them to slow down. I know time is money bit the interior is so important. You see it everyday and notice all the imperfections. We would hire him again for another project just for his willingness to return phone calls. I would have rated perfect if not the rush feeling we had

I recently hired Mr. Munoz to pressure wash and stain my deck, and to also paint half of my house. I wanted to let everyone know that he did a outstanding job, he finished in a timely manner, very professional and very trustworthy. He also gave us a very competitive quote. I even went to work while he worked in my home, my kids also loved him. Anytime I need anything I will only call Mr. Miguel from now on. Hope this is helpful.

Upon my initial contact with Cory, I wanted to install laminate wood flooring throughout my home. He thoroughly explained the process of removing the existing wood and carpet and the time-frame to get it all done. He was always prompt (working nonstop on some days) and delivered beyond my expectations. In the process, I added painting some rooms and repairs to some of the walls. Cory helped me to envision some additional changes to my home and I will definitely be using him for those projects in the near future.

Inmer was a joy to work with. He gave us a very fair price on our exterior paint job, and not only expertly painted our home but also fixed significant exterior damage and made it look new. His sharp eye for detail and strong work ethic really helped make house flipping a success. We've already hired him to do additional work. You may find cheaper painters, but you won't find a better value. Inmer doesn't send people to paint, he does the work himself with his team. You won't go wrong hiring him!

I hired Mr. Baynes to paint the interior of my house. It was a large job (including walls, ceilings, trim and doors). He did a wonderful job. He was on time each day, trustworthy (I was comfortable going to work while he painted). He cleaned everything up before leaving each day and kept in touch to let me know his progress. I would highly recommend Mr. Baynes and will certainly use him again for some other projects around my house.

We hired Tom to tile our laundry room and fix the ceiling in several places in our house, and his assistant Jeanelle to paint the first floor and upstairs bath. They did a great job, very prompt, reasonably priced, professional and I can't be more pleased with the outcome. We will be hiring Tom again to do our flooring and deck this Fall. He is highly rated for a reason- very easy to work with and a nice guy too.

Mr. Horne painted my home in such great timing. Not only did he paint my home, but he offered me deals for other home improvement jobs that I need done. I will most definitely be calling him back to work on my home for other things I need done.

Scott Specker and his Five Star Painting Team came in to remove the wallpaper from all the hallways in the building where my dental office is located in Hamilton Mill, Dacula Georgia. They did a great job! They told us exactly what to expect, how many days they were going to be there, what paint odors to expect, how they were going to get the job done and they did the work around our schedules. The paint they recommended is a vast improvement over the terrible wall paper that was here before we moved into our space. Super happy with their work and we would call them again to cover our painting needs. Dr. Colin P. Lentz, DDS Lanier Valley Dentistry

We were looking to have just a couple of rooms painted, we ended up having most of the house painted. They met us at our house early on a Sunday, which was very helpful. They did great work, and were flexible in their schedule to paint a few extra rooms that we added to the list. Very reliable painters and really nice people. We are going to have them paint more of our house when we get to those areas. I would highly recommend them to anyone I know.

I needed my front porch deck, trim and trellis pressure washed, painted, stained and sealed. Diward, the owner, and his team provided an on time project delivery that included professionalism, thorough work, and clean up. My deck and porch looked brand new again and I was able to put my home on the market and get multiple offers after one day. I also used C&R for my paint and staining of my side deck,fence and a major Sheetrock repair.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost for an interior painter ranges between $450 and $900. 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 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 $200 to $2,500. 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 a painter charge per room?

The cost to paint a room will vary based on the size of the room, the type of paint you select, any ceiling or trim work needed, and any repairs needed. If no repairs or other additional work is needed, painting a room with contractor-grade paint could range from $1 to $2 per square foot, including materials. Selecting a luxury paint (some cost more than $100 per gallon) will certainly increase your house painting costs. Here are some additional examples of average house painting costs, per room:

  • 12x12 room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 12x12 room with an 8-foot ceiling: about $100
  • 14x16 master bedroom with a 9-foot ceiling: about $150
  • 14x16 master bedroom with an 8-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 16x16 living room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $175
  • 16x16 living room with a 20-foot ceiling: starting at $225
