Gabriel is absolutely incredible. He really took his time with my one bedroom apartment and it’s completely spotless. He went above and beyond to clean my place and I can’t thank him enough. He is so kind- not only just as someone who was cleaning my house but genuinely as a person. I felt so safe with him and was able to leave to leave the apartment to go run some errands while he was still there. My older brother has a very rare form of cancer and cannot walk and Gabriel helped me get him upstairs to the apartment after I went to go get him from an appointment. I didn’t ask him to do this. He offered. I truly cannot thank him enough for his generosity. I’ve already hired him for next week- I had that great of an experience. Thank you so much Gabriel and I look forward to next time!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does pressure washing cost in Atlanta?

If you’re searching for a pressure washing pro in Atlanta, you might see starting costs for as low as $50. But keep in mind your price depends on several variables, including whether you’re washing a home or a smaller surface (for example, a deck or patio furniture), as well as the size and height of your home. 

Pressure washing crews may need to bring ladders to reach two- or three-story buildings. Whether you have a water source available could be another factor, as well as whether you need additional areas cleaned like patios, driveways or roofs.

By contacting Atlanta’s best pressure washers, you can find out exactly how much this service will cost you.

Please note: All cost estimates are accurate at time of writing and are subject to change. For the most accurate, up-to-date cost estimates for your specific project, get free estimates from pros near you. 

Is it worth it to hire a professional pressure washer?

Yes, it’s often worth it to hire a pro to pressure wash your house or other surfaces. The main benefits of hiring a professional pressure washer include the pro’s ability to clean without damaging your home (removing the risk for personal injury) and their ability to spot problems before they occur. 

With DIY pressure washing, you can save money and get familiar with your house’s nooks and crannies. However, you run the risk of damaging your siding and your paint, falling off a ladder, hurting yourself with the high-pressure water and not spotting problems that an experienced pro would be able to spot.

Contact the top-rated pressure washing services near you to figure out if hiring a pro is the best option for you.

What is the best time of year to pressure wash your house?

A warm, sunny day is the best time of year to pressure wash your house. The warm sun will be able to dry out the house after washing. You should also consider pressure washing your home after the rainy, storm season has passed. Depending on where you live, this might be in the spring, summer or early fall.

Contact the best pressure washing services and pros to determine the best time to wash your home, and schedule an appointment.

How much does pressure washing cost per square foot?

The cost of hiring a pressure washer will depend on the square footage of your home, which translates to the square footage of your exterior walls. In general, expect to pay around $0.10-$0.17 per square foot of your property size. Ask the professional how much they charge per square foot of the surface itself. This can be helpful in estimating the cost to pressure wash driveways, decks, fences and roofs.

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 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.

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 do I find and hire a professional pressure washer?

An online search allows you to compare ratings and reviews for the best pressure washing services near you. Look for customer reviews with attached photos, as these showcase the work of the pro. Even better — look for photos of the surfaces and structures you need a pro to clean. This may include before-and-after photos of home exteriors, concrete driveways, sidewalks and more.

Once you’ve decided on a few professionals, request free cost estimates from at least three of them before you make your choice. 

How long does it take to pressure wash a house?

Pressure washing a house tends to take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. The larger the house, the longer it will take. It may also take an additional 15 to 30 minutes of setup time and pack time, and some time may be required to switch between applying the cleaning chemicals and rinsing them off. 

Ask the best pressure washers near you how long it might take to wash your home's exterior (or other surfaces), and get free estimates.

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.

Reviews for Atlanta paint preparers
Thumbtack Customer
NDC painters were hired to paint interior rooms in my home. Nelson & his team consistently arrived on time. He was very knowledgeable about their trade, adequately prepared, and pleasant to work with. They were Professionals in every sense of the word. I'll be the first to admit I can be difficult to please. I highly recommend NDC painting for your future painting needs.

I needed painting and a few other jobs done to prepare my home for sale. This was the best experience that I’ve had working with a contractor. Great communication, high-quality work and amazing value. I’d definitely use them again!

Kristen was absolutely amazing. She was very responsive and answered any question I had before hand. She holds herself to a very high standard and does amazing work. She makes sure that everything is prepared before she even starts painting. After she is done painting, she schedules another day to come back in case anything needs touching up. We were very happy and already recommended her to all our neighbors. She will definitely be our go-to girl for any other painting jobs in the future.

Rob & team showed up on time prepared and ready to work. They painted my 800 sq foot condo in about 8.5 hours. I was very impressed with the work that they did. Attention to detail, efficient and kind are just a few things that come to mind when thinking about Rob & team. Highly recommend!
