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 does it cost to get the outside of your house painted?

You can expect to pay around $2,535 to get the outside of your house painted, though this cost will increase with larger house sizes (and decrease with smaller ones). The average hourly rate for exterior painters is $45 and ranges from $25-$75.

Wood, brick, stucco, vinyl, aluminum and stone each have their own set of demands. Contact exterior painters near you to get a detailed cost estimate for your house.

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.

The painters from Millan painting did an amazing job painting multiple rooms in my house. They carefully repaired and fixed all the holes and damage to the walls. They did an absolutely beautiful and clean paint job. They were affordable, friendly and professional. I will definitely hire them again. 100% recommend them to others!

Horacio was prompt when responding to the inquiry as well as coming out for the estimate. However, he was an hour late the first day for work. No call or text to advise. The 2nd and 3rd days—1/2 hour late. He never used my name when communicating while at my home—would only say “Hello?” to get my attention. We are also in the midst of a pandemic, and I had to remind him on several occasions to keep his mask on (he wore a mask upon arrival but took it off while in the house which was unacceptable and careless, not just for my/family safety, but for his own as well.) He painted an entertainment center which was just constructed as well as the ceiling upstairs and downstairs. The ent center had shelves and doors which were spray painted in the garage. Since they were the last thing he painted & were not dry before he left, he left some of the paint purchased for any touch ups that needed to be completed. Little did I know that he leaned all of the pieces on paper and, when fully dried and picked up, the paper tore off paint from several of the pieces. I am left to touch them up myself. I asked about the remaining paint from the ceiling and wall that was painted, but Horacio said he used “everything”, and that there was nothing left over. I find that hard to believe since there was paint left from the entertainment center—only for me to do my own touch ups. There was paint left on the floor in the upstairs bathroom as well as on my curtains, which he actually took down to complete the ceiling. All in all, the work completed was ok, but not leaving any of the paint I purchased and the additional touch ups I was left to do has left me dissatisfied. I was not satisfied with the overall completion of everything.

I contracted Rudy to paint my entire home that came with some changes because some areas of the home gave 20-25 ft ceilings and abstract angles. His rates are fair, he’s professional and responsive. I’d certainly hire Rudy again for future paint projects and would recommend him to anyone.

Never gave me his name actually. But he was very punctual & quick to respond in correspondence. My job consisted of just repainting certain areas on a double door for the office due to being able to see the priming near the window panels. After attempting to put as much paint as possible on the door creases in hopes of it weeping into the grooves, we decided to caulk it. However, when he removed the paint from the windows, I ended up with scratches on two of the window panels. A little disappointed as these are brand new doors.

I can say this young man was very good at painting and his personality is warm and professional. The work he done was amazing. The only down fall I had was that he arrived after our schedule time and had to step away to get supplies. But the work and price is the best. I would use him again in the future.

We contracted with John Mazzio to provide painting services for living room, kitchen & both upstairs & downstairs hallways including ceilings. The 1st most remarkable noteworthy experience was the 1st day work was scheduled, I overslept, missing Cosme completely! Despite sleeping like Rip Van Winkle on day 1, John still worked it out to complete the work b4 end of the week. Cosme is incredibly fast and does a great job! When Cosme was scheduled elsewhere, John Mazzio jumped in to complete the job 2 r satisfaction! As they were doing such a great job, we added on staining the stair rails! Both jobs were completed, to r satisfaction, including time frame! The price for the 2 "jobs" was fair & reasonable. We contracted his services vs. 2 other quotes from larger companies. We highly recommend John Mazzio, "Paint and Point, Inc.", and his crew! We will use again, as a matter of fact...John Mazzio is working on a quote 2 stain r kitchen cabinets!
