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.

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.

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 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.

Reviews for Savannah painters
Lynn M.
I had my kitchen cabinets, walls, trim and ceiling painted. They showed up every morning and worked until time was needed for the paint to dry. Matt was knowledgeable about matching the existing trim color. A job well done!

Matt did a great job painting our picket fence. He stuck to the estimate even though the coats of paint seemed to call for a lot more work. He cleaned up and was very tidy to not have overspray on anything. He was there when he said he’d be there and stayed in contact the whole way through with updates throughout the job. I would definitely hire Matt and the team again for any future painting projects. Very nice and easy to work with.

Bobby does excellent work. He replaced/worked on ceiling fans, recaulked tubs, painted two large bedrooms floor to ceiling, pressure washed and painted front steps, and removed kitchen cabinets and repaired the ceiling. Bobby is very thorough. We will definitely hire him again.

Great value for excellent work. Cody is trustworthy and dependable and wants to do the job right. He painted the exterior of my home, including my porch and doors. He also painted my bathroom and pressure washed my gutters and back deck. He was very helpful and willing to help out with small projects along the way (like re-caulking my bath tub). Would definitely work with Cody again!

We had our house painted to prepare for sale. Ken and RIta did an excellent job and were great to work with. They were prompt, provided a fair quote, communicated well, were responsive about touch-ups, and were all around professional and honest.

Matt is currently a one-man company and there are advantages to that fact. One, you can trust him alone in your home and two, he is friendly and thorough and he does the job right... even if it takes a little longer than the crews that come in and slap paint on the walls.

Matt was so helpful and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy. His team was very nice and professional. He even came back a couple weeks later to clean all the wood floors and try to remove any OLD paint left by the last owners.

Matt and his crew painted the exterior of my brick house and my front porch. They did an excellent job, price was very fair and their work far exceeded my expectations. I am very pleased with their work, the quality, and the response time to any questions I had. I posted before and after pictures.

Matt is a great professional and on top of that a nice guy. He got the apartment painted within a tight time frame prior to furniture delivery and getting set up for short term vacation rental. I have already hired him do do more outside work. I hope to have a long term relationship.

Would not recommend to use them at all. Had floors refinished and walls painted and will need to now redo the floors and both not professional. Took over 2 1/2 weeks with having to redo them twice and still horrible. Spots like the o es in the pictures all over. Outlet covers never taken off and edging choppy.

Eb and his crew were able to finish out abandoned exterior paint job and matched the colors very well. They were always on time and corresponded very well if there was a delay due to rain or weather. The crew worked all day long until it was dark on every occasion. Eb was happy to work and the crew was a joy to have around the house. Eb made the job very affordable to help us out around Christmas. Highly recommend them.

Mike was great - he contacted me through this portal, wasn't pushy, very honest and thorough. He painted my moms house in Savannah before she moved in and covered everything prior to starting work, provided all receipts and was finished in 10 days as projected. I live in Los Angeles so coordinating and insuring work was done correctly and honestly was a concern but my mom was happy so I am too. I would recommend Mike to anyone. I expected labor costs to be higher as well but they were as competitive as in LA.

Matt was a joy to work with! I would highly recommend him to anyone! He painted the entire upstairs of our rental property (living room, kitchen, dining room, 2 bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms). He was prompt, responded to our questions, answered our phone calls, and sent us many photographs as we no longer live locally. Matt went above and beyond - fixing issues with walls, caulking around stairs and crown molding, and fixing popcorn ceiling issues. I have worked with many contractors in the Savannah area before and Matt is THE best at responding quickly and getting the job done when he says he will. Hire him. You won't regret it.
