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.

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

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.

We hired Serna to paint our basement and could not be happier with the finished product. Rangel is extremely detail oriented and didn't blink an eye in fixing numerous imperfections that he discovered in our walls that were caused by the previous owners. He was respectful of our time constraints. He also made suggestions on how to use accent paint to make the basement look even better. I would highly recommend Serna and plan to use them again on my next paint project.

Carlos and his partner were on time, very professional. They did a wonderful job on the two rooms I asked them to paint for us. Very clean and neat, cleaned up after themselves. Will definitely be using them again for all of our painting needs! Thank you Carlos and Luis!

We really enjoyed working with Reynolds Painting. Super responsive, helpful, and easy to work with - not to mention well-priced and excellent quality work! We had patch work and painting done on our closet and master bedroom and would not hesitate to use Reynolds again the next time we need something similar done. Highly recommended!

Rangel and his team did a phenomenal job painting 3/4 of the interior, trim and ceilings of my 3300 sq ft home. Their level of professionalism as well as talent was beyond reproach and their flexibility was more than appreciated. Before they began, we discussed the order of painting and Rangel had no problems leaving one bedroom until last so that my boys' weren't disrupted during the school week. I also decided to add another room to the job and then decided to change the color of another wall. Rangel gladly made the requested changes without so much as a hiccup. The biggest form of compliment I've been told is a referral. I've already given a handful of friends Serna Painting's business card and I recommend them to anyone that wants a quality job done at a reasonable price! Call Serna Painting for a job done right!

Carlos and his team did a fantastic job painting our entire interior walls and trim. Not only did his work turn out flawlessly but he was the most reasonably priced of everyone we contacted. He was easy to work with, understood all my requests and was on time and courteous. I couldn't be happier with his work! I would 100% recommend Carlos to anyone looking for interior painting.

Contracted Chano and A Plus for an exterior house painting job that also entailed a fair bit of carpentry. Chano and the team did a great job, communicated well and overall I am very happy with the result and would hire them again.

Clyde and his team did an incredible job transforming a shabby 1950s kit home into our 2020 dream house. Their quote was incredibly fair, outlined everything we should expect, and surpassed our expectations. Our home was painted in record time and nearly everyone on our block has been over to compliment us. Clyde and his team helped us settle on color options, highlight our front door (not pictured), and helped us improve on the little things during our final walk-through, I cannot recommend CWN Advanced Painting enough!

Anthony was great to work with! He was knowledgeable, efficient and thorough. He was polite, helpful and reasonably priced for the high quality of work performed. He was able to stay within our budget, which was greatly appreciated. We had two rooms (including closets, trim, casings, doors, etc) that needed to be painted, with small repairs. He went above and beyond to provide the best service possible. He provided recommendations and even helped with the color choice in one room, and it looks great! We would definitely recommend Advanced Painting, and look forward to working with them again! Thank you Anthony for two great rooms!

Anthony and his team did a fantastic job. I felt extremely comfortable and he provided a great price on several large rooms. Also sent a follow up and offered touch ups after if needed. Finished in two days. I plan to hire again whenever I need another paint job! Thanks again! Chrissy
