"Scott is a true professional. He is organized, fast, accurate, reliable and punctual. He runs Paintmasters LLC and it looks he is a Lonely Wolf. He is helped sometimes by his wife, but mainly he works alone. He takes pride in his profession and he likes the job well done. He has high standards and he does not skip steps in the painting process. That will give you more bang for your buck. I met Scott in May 2015 when I was in the process to select a painter to paint my entire house in Munster, IN. Scott’s price was $300 over what I determined to be the market price by getting 5 quotes from 5 painters. Unfortunately, at that time I did not select Scott based on the $300 price difference. I selected Bargain Professional Painting LLC from Chesterton ran by Mike Gallemore. The painting job was “completed” from July 26, 2016 to August 5, 2015. It took twice as long as discussed; the quality was poor and under any acceptable standards. The main reason was the absence of skill, skipping steps in the painting process and lack of quality standards. But this review is about Scott. I called Scott and he jumped on board to retouch and repaint the entire house, walls, trim and baseboards and make repairs missed by the prior painter. He is still in the process of completing the job, but I was able to see the difference between these two painters. One like Mike who is using less skilled employees to do the job and have a high rate of misses and one like Scott who is working alone and takes responsibility and pride for every inch of paint. Please feel free to ask Scott about my phone number and I will be more than glad to give you additional details or you can stop by my house to see his work when he finishes next week. Thank you, Scott! Sorin, Munster, IN"

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 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 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
