Sandy W. says, "I have used R&B twice and have been more than satisfied. One time I had a few repairs/installations in my home that needed to be done and they were done promptly and efficiently--all was great! Another time, I had a very large desk that needed to be moved from one room to another. This required taking the door off of the first room to get the desk out. Even with the door off, it was a very narrow space to get the desk out. But they did it and I was and am very happy with the work R&B Restorations did for me. In addition to work quality, prefessionalism and responsiveness, they were punctual and their prices are very fair. I'll be calling them again when I have work to do in the house."See more

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

There was a mix communication for our first appt which was easily resolved. John and his wife was a pleasure to work with. His price by far beat all the other estimates that I received and his work is precise and clean cut. John painted my 18 ft foyer and kitchen, we were so impressed that we called him back to do 2 bathrooms. We have a custom build home and we will be calling John to paint all of our rooms.

Horrible Experience!!! I was looking to get 3 rooms and a small hallway painted, in my new home. My initial contact was a phone call from Jessica. She was very pleasant, sent me pictures from previous clients, and I scheduled an appointment for her to come out and evaluate my home for an estimate. I asked if the job would be completed in one day, because I knew of my hectic work schedule, and I was ensured that it would be. My appointment was scheduled for 9am. Due to delays on their end, Jessica and her partner Tony, didn’t arrive until about 11am. They evaluated the home and gave me an estimate for the job which I accepted. They left to get the paint mixed and returned about noon. In the midst of the delay, I confirmed a few more times that the job would be completed same day and was ensured that it would be. At about 7:30pm, Jessica asked what time she could come back the following day. I had to work the following 2 days, with no time to provide them access to the new home that I was not yet living in, so I was surprised by the question. I expressed my scheduling concerns to Jessica and she stated that they had about 3 hours of work left and would just finish the job that night. In the midst of that, Jessica and Tony must’ve had some type of issue with one another because Tony quit the job and was sitting outside, in the car, for the last 2 hours of work that was completed. Around 10pm(10 hours of them working)Jessica made a number of excuses as to why the job couldn’t be finished. Long story short, I paid a deposit of $500 to have my outlets painted over(they didn’t remove the outlet covers and only tape a few of them), paint on baseboards(poorly taped), paint of the floor(didn’t use drop cloth or plastic in all areas)and NOT ONE room complete, after 10 hours. I’m new to thumbtack and this first experience was a horrible one. These pictures are from how my home was left after the 10 hours of “work”. I have more but could only upload 4
