We hired Chano to paint the interior of our garage, and Chano also quoted on staining our wood deck. Chano was very professional, friendly and thorough during the quoting process and his team did excellent work. In fact, they were able to complete the job the same day Chano came out to quote. Highly recommend!

Right on, from start to finish. Prompt reply when I asked to get a quote/come see the project. Demo'd powder room floor, installed new marble floor tiles...was so happy with the work (it's beautiful) I asked to add on installing new faucet, and put in two new junction boxes for new lights/sconces I purchased. Was going to have Marek paint the room as well, but I'm undecided on colors! I have a small project in the kitchen I need done in the near future, and I will definitely have Marek do the work. Very neat & tidy during the project. Great communication with Gracie before/during/after the project.

Kris did two jobs for us. One was our fireplace the other a wall in my "girl cave". Both of these were nothing less than outstanding! The fireplace was the first and it was so beautiful it took my breath away, exceeded my expectations. Then he did an accent wall in my girl cave, the color and texture was so much better than the wallpaper that had previously be in there. It was so hard to believe it was paint! We are having him do another room. My husband and I consider the work he does art. Reasonably, priced, gorgeous work, great work ethic and on top of all that he is a charming and sweet person.

Will was, hands down, the most communicative person I’ve worked with when it comes to maintaining my rental property. He gave a fair price for repairing the walls and painting an old 3 bed / 2 bath and kept me up to date of status and sent photos of the progress throughout the week (without me asking). My building is an older brick 2 flat in Chicago and the many walls have cracked over time. After Will’s team spent 4 days in there it is hard to recognize. The team also did an excellent job cleaning and protecting my fixtures from paint (no paint on anywhere not requested). I will use Will and Victory 1 in the future for other units.

Joe did a great job painting my condo - the trim and paint look fantastic. After a quick phone call, Joe promptly came to my condo to review and provide a quote. I liked him right away: an honest, nice, professional guy. He explained the process, costs, and made much needed recommendations on the type of paint and color. Further, I needed a rush job and he accommodated me, working on the Saturday between XMAS & New Years! Finally, while painting, Joe repaired the things I had never gotten around to fixing, like the out of place light fixture and the detached smoke detector. I would definitely recommend him - thanks Joe!

I had BC remodel my basement... drywall, tape, mud and paint. I am very happy with the job. I had 3 quotes and he was the middle quote. The story goes you get what you pay for. I was very impressed with everything!! Prompt, very clean and excellent work. I will use BC in future for this old house. Thank you again!!

BEYOND EXCELLENT! I recently moved to a new place to live with my partner and our place needed some serious painting. I obtained a couple of estimates from a variety of painting companies, however, they all seemed over priced - based in my personal research.Upon discussing this with a friend, she suggested me to reach Charlie's painting to get a quote. My Experience As a Customer: Since day one when I contacted Charlie I knew he had to be the one to begin and complete the painting that my home urgently needed. Charlie was very nice, patient and respectful when I first contacted him via phone. I explained my budget and what I needed done in my home. He advised that before he could give me an estimate on the amount he would charge, he wanted to see the conditions of my place to ensure that the price/quote he was providing was fair. He was able to stop by my home in a quick turn around time after we spoke on the phone. When Charlie arrived to my house, he advised that what I was requesting and my budget would work for him! Those news were very exciting to me because again, I had struggled so much to find a painting company that would negotiate with me! I honestly think he knew how much I had struggled to find him! This is not the best part yet. I told Charlie my idea of how I wanted my house to be painted and he, in a very respectful manner, provided other ideas/suggestions that he believed would be good for my house. He provided ideas of having different colored rooms and the color choice itself was glorious! I could not be happier. Needless to say, the quality job provided was beyond expectations. My walls and ceilings look as professional as they can be! I WITHOUT A DOUBT will be recommitting and recommend Charlie's painting to ANYONE who is looking for professional paint job with reasonable prices. To be honest, I don't think there is anything that needs to be improved. The time taken to complete my home's painting was less than the estimated time Charlie's painting had advised of, the quality work was excellent, and the attitude and charisma that Charlie has is unique. Again, I recommend these services to anyone and everyone!

We had several projects completed yesterday. The workmanship was remarkable! Our deck has never looked so good, we also had a mailbox with a post in the ground installed, they went the extra mile and even added a brace on the ground for the post! They replaced and painted several boards and the door facing. The cleanup was exceptional! We plan to hire them to paint the inside of our home soon!

I recently moved and Chano and his team repainted my entire place. He came by first to look at the place to give me an estimate and was extremely helpful, suggesting paint colors when I asked for recommendations. The finished product was perfect, and I really appreciated the level of detail and care his team took. He really is a perfectionist and wants to make sure you are happy with the finished product. I would absolutely recommend anyone to him.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost for an interior painter ranges between $450 and $900. 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 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 $200 to $2,500. 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 a painter charge per room?

The cost to paint a room will vary based on the size of the room, the type of paint you select, any ceiling or trim work needed, and any repairs needed. If no repairs or other additional work is needed, painting a room with contractor-grade paint could range from $1 to $2 per square foot, including materials. Selecting a luxury paint (some cost more than $100 per gallon) will certainly increase your house painting costs. Here are some additional examples of average house painting costs, per room:

  • 12x12 room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 12x12 room with an 8-foot ceiling: about $100
  • 14x16 master bedroom with a 9-foot ceiling: about $150
  • 14x16 master bedroom with an 8-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 16x16 living room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $175
  • 16x16 living room with a 20-foot ceiling: starting at $225
