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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Prospect Park painters
Sharon S.
The painting was substandard. Many places you could see the old paint bleeding through. They were supposed to paint the ceiling in the master bedroom, but you could tell they did not paint the entire ceiling. They replaced some boards on our deck and the work was shoddy at best. Some parts of the deck were not even fastened down. There were irregular gaps in the boards and they were cut unevenly. They were very personable, but their work was not the quality we expected.

Professional, thorough, and competitively priced. After a year renovating our house, interior paint was the last step. They nailed it.

Scott Olberding of Big O Painting was a pleasure to deal with from the estimate phase through the finished painted interior. The work was a good value, top notch and he even came back to walk through his finished work to make sure we were satisfied. Quick, reliable work. Highly recommended.

Steven and his crew painted the outside of my house. They came out to my house multiple days to ensure the the job was done well. They monitored the weather to make sure conditions were ideal, and were in consistent communication with me regarding their schedule and progress. For the one error they made (painted my garage the wrong color) they made it right at no additional cost. Steven even put an extra coat on the garage during the final walk-through to ensure the quality of the job, even though I didn't request it. I have nothing but positives to report about their professionalism and quality, and I highly recommend their company to others.

This was one of the best experiences I've had with a contractor. The professionalism from the initial meeting to the projects conclusion was the best. We had a bank of shelves and base cabinets to paint. The quality of the work was great. The small work crew was respectful and hard working. This was truly a great experience.

Hired to paint two garages and trim, trim around exterior door and floor of wrap around porch. Friendly, courteous, efficient and timely. They also did the the exterior of two doors that I asked to be done at the last minute. Price reasonable. Very pleased. Would hire again.

John and his team did a fantastic job on our hone. They took their time in prepping the house, and made us aware of any areas that were damaged beyond what they could repair. They cleaned up at the end of each day as well as thoroughly cleaned up when they were completely finished. I will hire them again in a heartbeat for any painting projects that we may have in the future. Highly recommend!!
