On time, fast work, estimate was accurate. Lightly scraped the house (requires touch up paint) and fence a little bit trying to get large truck down my (admittedly extremely narrow) driveway. Would have been perfect otherwise.

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.

I hired Bundled to paint my place, do minor handyman work I am not capable of myself, and to clean my apartment after all the services. Bundled responded quickly to my request on thumbtack and provided a detailed quote for all the services. I live in a pretty large 2 bedroom, with 14 foot ceilings, it took them 3 days to finish all the work. They did a great job painting, and even had an interior designer to help pick out a color that would work well in my space. I also had them do some minor work like hang up shelves and my television. After all that was done they came in a cleaned, the girl did a great job, really got all that grease off my stove, which I can never seem to do myself. I am very happy with my service, and would highly recommend Bundled to anyone looking to get some work done on their home. I will definitely keep using them for cleaning, and again if I decided to do more work in my place.

Very satisfied with the paint job they did. The gentleman were very easy to work with and gave me professional advice on what I could do next in other rooms. Good price for professional work! Definitely using them again for more house projects and referring them to my friend and neighbors.

We had a great experience working with Will and his team at V1Painting. From the start we were very impressed with Will's professionalism and responsiveness. We messaged briefly through the app and Will was able to come over that same day to provide a quote. We used V1Painting to paint the entirety, (walls, trim, ceilings) of our 2 bedroom condo and they did a great job. They ensured all the surfaces were prepped properly prior to painting and covered all of our floors and belongings from damage. At the end of the day and project they made sure to clean up after themselves and put everything back where it was originally. My husband and I were in a time crunch as we wanted to get all the painting done before we had the movers deliver our furniture. The whole process, from submitting the project to finish, took less than a week. Will was very flexible with the timing and our work schedules. He was always on time. The team did a great job. I would 100% use them again for any painting I needed done and would recommend them to others as well. I have zero complaints.

We hired Kosterna Construction to strip the prior partially completed stain/ paint from a 40 foot pedestrian bridge we have in our backyard. While the previous job was very difficult to get off the crew was able to get it off then to seal/ protect/ improve the look of the bridge! It looks great! I wish we had done this project sooner! We also had the crew power wash the garage and driveway while they were here as well. Overall very reasonably priced and they did great work! We will call them again when we have future work!

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.

Two weeks ago I got four quotes for painting three rooms ranging from $600 - $2100. One was a referral from a colleague that ended up $500 more than others. Ram Renovation & Design were not the lowest quote, but with excellent Thumbtack ratings we wanted someone we could trust. After comparing quotes with Ram (Raul), they came down on their original price to $1100 including paint. Raul promptly communicated with me, got the paint color and sheen we wanted in Sherwin Williams Super Paint and I felt comfortable leaving his crew alone. They were very quick and the walls are perfectly painted. We highly recommend their work and plan on using Ram Renovation & Design again in the future. Thanks Raul!

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, has been my painter or I should say artist, for many years. He is truly a craftsman and restoration artist. I have a Victorian home with a lot of plaster and wood detail which Jacek has restored and painted. He has worked on many projects for me and is currently painting the wood and stucco on the outside of my home. He is meticulous and passionate about his work. He is prompt and very organized and keeps a very clean work area. I would not ever have anyone else paint for me. Jacek is a true master.

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.

He was a nice guy. Quality of work was below okay (I had to retouch/paint the wall my self). He asked for more money midway (even though we agreed to the price before he started the job). Did not do everything because I said no to paying more money. And now he will not reply to my calls/messages to come and complete the job. Wait to pay him after he completes everything. Took him 2 weeks for something that should take 2-3 days. Because he runs back and forth between other jobs. I would not hire him again. Make sure you get the price written on paper for things he will do (in detail) if you hire him. I hate to leave a negative review but yea.

I just needed some touch up paint work done, including trim and doors. I had a special event planned and was hoping, but not expecting them to be able to get to me, since I waited until the last minute to call, but THEY DID!!!! Mission accomplished with no mess and no clean up! The guys were tedious neat and quick. I will be calling again!

I could not decide on color, and after studying the color choices and picking several, they came with samples to apply to the wall for me to choose from. After picking out my living room color, he bought the paint and started to apply it to the walls. I walked in and he saw my face and said "you don;t like it do you" I said "no" and together we selected another color that I truly love. He was awesome!

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
