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 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.

Wonderful experience with Mark and his team! He sourced the paint to match our existing trim paint and power washed the surface to make sure it was ready to paint!! The painting work itself was thorough and quick....and makes our 15-year old home look like new again! Would recommend highly!!

The price was great and Alex did a good job painting, just wished they'd caulked and treated big dents in dry wall first before painting. I thought that was standard or at least the caulking if nothing else. However not very good at cleaning up after themselves, there's several pots on the carpet, countertops, cabinets that I have to clean up and some paint on our TV. Nothing major but time consuming. Overall, good job painting!

The home I needed painted was in another state. Luckily I was able to view the job before I was billed. The coat was thin, the old paint was not scraped to create a smooth surface and the paint chips were left around the perimeter of the home. The company told me there were years of old paint and it was the best they could do. I requested another coat and it was added, the chips were cleaned up as requested,but I recommend to be on the property while the work is completed.

Jared is a detail oriented painter with a definite process; also a jack-of-all-trades and knowledgeable in several other areas. Jared came in after a horrible experience with a large painting company with a 5-person crew. He tackled the entire interior paint project fixing MANY, MANY errors and problems created by the other painting company. Super professional and focused.

I had Hefernans Home Services paint the interior of my home and power washed my house and cleaned my exterior windows. This company specializes more with exterior home services rather than painting. As for the interior painting goes, overall they performed satisfactory, however the exterior house and window washing had been done fantastically. I would recommend them.

These folks came all the way down from Lafayette to paint for me. The owner took some time with me to look over my place and gave me a great price to paint 5 walls. The crew were polite and engaging and they did a really nice job. Very clean and thorough. They were in and out of here under two hours. I’d highly recommend Tidy painting company!

Todd is a great guy. I was a bit skeptical at first, as I am not a trusting person. This company was such a pleasure to have taking care of my painting needs. Professional Painting will get all of my paint business in the future, as well as from a few of my colleagues who are currently in the market for quality paintwork. These guys go above and beyond consistently. Great guys, great company, great experience.

Working with TJ Painting was excellent. They did a very good job coming to help us paint our kitchen and bathroom as I am already expecting and trying to get ready to have my first child. One thing that I liked about TJ painting was their ability to work on time, arriving on time, touching up anything I noticed without complaining. Its really hard meeting people who are willing to work with you whom are supporting of your goals. Thank you TJ Painting. You guys did an excellent job! Keep it up!!

I contacted Juan about painting our new front door. I was under a deadline for install and he got it finished in a very quick fashion. His work was fantastic and his price was extremely accommodating. After the door, I needed a bedroom wall prepped and painted. He had it finished the next day. I am absolutely recommending him and his team to everyone in need of affordable and professional painting services.

We had an unfortunate experience with this company. The job estimate did not reflect the actual cost or time required. In addition, the job was poorly done and they took payment knowing the job was not completed (paint still showing through many areas, painters tape left up, electrical socket coverings not replaced). He also did not use a primer (even after specifically requesting this) thus requiring more paint and then asking us to reimburse him for the extra paint costs.
