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.

We had Ale House Painting paint the exterior of our house recently. They also replaced portions of siding that were rotten. They did an excellent job. Alex and his crew were friendly and always kept us informed of their progress. We definitely recommend them and we would contact them again for our future painting needs.

Sistine Chapel did a great job painting the exterior of our house. They did it quickly, and it looks great. They worked with us on our timeline and were patient while we got our HOA approval. We're very happy with the quality and job overall. We'll definitely use Sistine Chapel for our next painting projects.

NDC Painting did an amazing job. They went above and beyond what I wanted. I just needed touch ups in my home and they were so detail oriented that they painted much more than I was expecting for the same low price. They made my house look brand new. I could really tell that they truly cared about the way I wanted the home to look because they put in the extra effort to make it look new. I will definitely hire NDC Painting again if I ever have any painting needs in the future, and I recommend them 100%!

Felipe re-painted a bedroom, bathroom, stairs and interior bedroom doors and door trim for 4 rooms, fixed a drywall issue in the shower area, and fixed the fascia and trim around my garage with bondo and repainting. He was always on time, worked hard, and did an excellent job. The painting was great, the drywall and fascia repairs look amazing. I am selling my house, but otherwise I would definitely be calling him in the future.

Five star service!!!! I have been dealing with this paint project for months with another contractor. My house has been left unfinished for months. I came across W&C using Thumbtack. Wilmer came out the next day and gave me a detailed quote. The crew made this paint project effortless. From start to finish I was given step by step updates. Crew was friendly and very professional. Turnaround time was awesome! Would definitely recommend W&C!

Chris and his team did an awesome job with painting and carpeting at my house. I had several quotes from different Contractors and his was the lowest. I was extremely happy with the quality of work and how quickly everything was done. I would highly recommend Express Painting & Remodeling to all of my friends or anyone who has various home projects since they do pretty much everything! I will certainly hire Chris again and would support his Business to grow and succeed! Thank you for the great job done, Chris!

Fresh Coat did a wonderful job painting the exterior of our home. We made an appointment with Alan for a quote and he was there on time, and very professional and not trying to oversell us. I do not do business with anyone that makes me feel like I am being pressured. Alan took the time to go over all the details, colors and timeline. With all the rain we have had we were not expecting our house to get painted for a week or so, but what a surprise it was to come home and the house was almost completed ahead of time. The guys doing the work were very nice and would show us what they had done that day and ask if we saw anything missed or that needed attention. They cleaned up prior to leaving for the day and let us know what the plan was for the next day. Alan would also come by daily to see how it looked and also ask if we were satisfied with the work so far. We would recommend Fresh Coat to anyone needing a home painted. Patty & Earl Smith

I was in a pinch. Attempting to do this myself and my home being on the market for sale, it was my intention to do a little touch up painting around my windows. Well, as my luck would have it, I brushed the wrong color on and knew that I had a showing the next day and an open house to follow, so, I got on Thumbtack and got in touch with Express....explained my situation and they had someone out the very next morning to re-paint my window seals in front of my home. Prior to Darrin leaving, a fellow neighbor was so impressed while walking her dog that she stopped to not only compliment, but to get a business card for any future needs that she'd have on her home. I totally recommend this company to anyone who needs painting done.

Damian painted my 2 story foyer, kitchen, dining room, and did a few drywall patches for small holes as we prepped our house for sale. He was very responsive, professional and took great pride in his work to make sure everything was completed to my satisfaction. The final product looked great, and we got a 1st day offer on our home!

We were in need of painting our new house and Douglas and Carolin delivered a fantastic experience. They were thoughtful, courteous, and went out of their way to make sure we were 100% satisfied with the work that was done. Douglas even went above and beyond and helped me with an electrical issue we ran into with our outdoor sconces. I can’t say enough about them and the work they did and we would absolutely refer them to anyone.
