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.

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 Addison painters

Our overall experience with Dany's Painting (Daniel Peralta) was a very positive one. We are satisfied with the end results. The final price that we paid was higher than the original quote but that was in part due to the complexity of some of the spaces and room sizes... We were not satisfied with the original color we chose for one of the rooms and Daniel went out of his way to try to fix the color by mixing different paint colors that ended up turning out to be a really nice color and what we initially had in mind. He was pleasant & professional to work with. The did end up taking a bit longer than expected, in part due to us having purchased the wrong color and having to redo one of the rooms as well as his assistant unable to make it on one of the occasions and him having some car trouble other than that the rest of the time he was able to finish on time. We would highly recommend him and his company and will be working with him real soon to paint one other room for us as well as to correct a spot on the ceiling where the excisting paint tore off, once the painters tape was removed. He agreed to return to fix that at no additional cost and we are holding him to that and we'll be folllowing up with him soon to arrange that. Highly recommend for any paint job. One of our walls we had him do the metallic (special finish) paints that requires different painting technique and are extremely happy with the results.

Brian helped us get our house ready before we put it on the market. He came out to the house and spoke with my wife and me. He gave us a written estimate of all work and then went through all the estimate and explained any questions we had. The job consisted of installing a kitchen light fixture, drywall repair in kitchen, removing wallpaper, painting several rooms, repairing a railing on our deck, painting the front portion of our house and touching up some staining on some cabinets. It took them less than a week to complete the job. We were very impressed with the quality of the work and they were very prompt and thorough in all areas. Even 3 months after he had completed the work, we needed something else repaired to help us complete the inspection list on our pending sale of our house. Brian came out and took care of it free of charge which really made us quite happy. If I didn't move, I would hire Brian again for sure.

I recently hired Before and After Renovation to do a handful of home restorations such as painting and bathroom updates. I am incredibly happy with the outcome and would highly recommend Aldo Flores and his team to anyone looking to do the same for their home or business. Aldo made the quotation process, design process, and execution simple and laid back. The work was completed not only quickly but beautifully executed. These guys are amazing and I promise you will find their rates to be quite reasonable as well. I really cannot say enough wonderful things about them.
