Jack was very efficient, kind and got everything done that I had asked. I had him out together two end tables and a rolling rack, he got all of it accomplished in 1 hour and my items looked great! He brought all of his own tools so he did not need anything from me. I would highly recommend him for any of your handyman needs: he can, paint, assemble furniture, hang pictures or shelves and mount tv's so really anything you need can be taken care of.

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!

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.

We hired Honey Child's Carpet Cleaning to clean our sofa, chairs and ottoman. He was friendly, prompt and professional. He was able to come to our house the day I spoke to him and he was done in about 45-minutes. He did an excellent job and the price was fair! We highly recommend this service provider!

I hired Encopia to paint my entire loft apt, and I must say it was truly a fantastic experience from start to finish. Marcin worked some very long hours in order to get the job done on schedule. He was meticulous about every detail and the end result looks amazing. I actually requested additional be added to certain rooms and requested a few additional patch jobs midway through the project. He adapted to each of my request, and at the end of the job did not ask for additional compensation to cover the additional work. Marcin is a very hard working & very genuine guy whose years of painting experience really show in his work. I would highly recommend Ecopia painting and plan to use them for any and all of my future paint projects.

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.

Jacek was a godsend in the midst of my first home buying experience and major renovation project. I originally engaged Jacek to perform some wood restoration work on some wooden beams that run across ceiling of my living room. These pine beams were original from when the home was built in 1889 so I wanted a wood restoration specialist with experience in restoring older homes. Jacek fit this mold. The scope was quickly expanded upon seeing the quality of Jacek's work and the passion he had for painting, home renovation and also design work. I ended up having Jacek paint and repair the drywall in nearly every room in the new home I purchased. While time consuming, his attention to detail and insistence that each crack, imperfection or break in the drywall be repaired prior to painting paid HUGE dividends as the walls are now closer to the quality of a new construction home vs. a +125 year old house. Jacek was also able to help me source a reputable carpenter and drywaller (both of which did an outstanding job) for a fraction of the cost of what general contractors / carpenters from Angie's List were trying to charge. Jacek's price was also extremely reasonable in a world where many contractors are only focused on the bottom line and quality of work is an afterthought. While we did go over budget from the original estimate, the overages I paid to Jacek were WELL WORTH IT as he made sure the work was done properly before checking out and stayed a couple extra days to finish the last 5-10% of the work. Outstanding job Jacek. I'm also planning to post some before and after pics of Jacek's work in my West Town Home on the Unique Painting and Decorating Studio Facebook website (he needs more pictures of his work).

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!

Mickey was extremely punctual, for both the estimate and the painting project. I needed my living room, dining room and hallway painted. He did the whole project in about 3 hours, including cleaning, wall repair where needed and two coats of paint. He uses the best quality paint and the work was exceptional. The rooms look wonderful! He explained pricing carefully (during the estimate) and was able to do the job within a few days of the estimate. Excellent clean up as well. I’m extremely happy with the quality of his work and his extreme efficiency. I highly recommend Mickey and Interior Design Painting.

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.

A.N.G. Environmental gets 5 stars from us! Jose & Memo came out the same day we called and gave us a great quote. Rashad & Mario removed the tile the next day and arrived on time and were very courteous and professional. Jose came to inspect the job that same night and by the next day, the paint was dry and all of the asbestos had been removed. We hired another company to come in for the asbestos test and it came back 100% clear. We highly recommend Jose and his team!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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

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.
