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.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

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.

Ecopia Painting quality of work is right on! Arrived with professional paint and tools to properly prepare the walls prior to painting over very dark paint. Great job and worth the price, would recommend to anyone looking for good work at a good price. Thank you!

Edmond and his team did a great and timely paint job for my condo. It looks great and he took time to address the details for what I needed. For my next paint job I will hire Fernandez Painting.

I had a quick turnaround for getting our new office painted and Dany's team was able to help right away. They painted our entire 5,000 square foot office with 3 different colors/types of paint including whiteboard paint. His team was very professional and Dany was very understanding with edits to the scope of work. Thanks for all of your help!

Professional and good communication. Painting was finished nicely in a timely fashion. Had an area of the wall patched where a curtain rod was, and let me tell you - after Markus finished patching and painting it, it looks like the curtain rod was never even there! Just on a side note, be sure to be clear whether you want the walls sanded before they're painted, as wall imperfections may show through the paint if not sanded.

Victory 1 Painting was respectful of my home. Crew prepped before starting to paint; covered furnishing, stairway, taped around frames, etc etc. I interviewed 3 other company's for the job & was annoyed after each meeting. The quotes were absolutely ridiculous. Often contractors quote based on appearance of home thus determining what they think you should be able to pay. Victory 1 Painting is the only company that actually measured the paint area & sent me a written quote couple of days later. The other paint company’s looked around & yelped out a figure 😱. The completed paint job by Victory 1 Painting is neat & beautiful. I am totally pleased. I would love to attach photos but, the house is not back in order. I will try to submit photos later.

Marcin from Ecopia was very professional through the whole process. I had Ecopia paint my bathroom and they took me through everything they would need to do to make it look great. The estimate was very fair and the actual painting was quick and clean. I highly recommend this painting company.

I can't recommend Ecopia Painting enough. They were very professional, polite, courteous, on-time, and did GREAT work. Ecopia "got" my painting project - its goals & objectives, and delivered exactly the solution I was after - at a very effective price. Five stars is not enough - 10 for Ecopia Painting!

Marcin did an excellent job in both painting quality and his patience/being honest when we discussed and chose colors. He is very friendly and nice. He listened carefully to our concerns and tried to help as much as possible, given that we had zero experience/knowledge in painting. He offered a quite reasonable price and listed each item in an organized and clear format, I appreciate his honesty. Marcin painted the wall quite carefully and flawlessly. He also made sure everything is back to place and clean after painting. I will definitely recommend Marcin to my friends and myself if I need paint another wall in the future ;)
