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 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 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.

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.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Westfield painters

The painters were pleasant. When I was asked about my satisfaction I informed Jesse of paint cracking and paint that was on the ceiling, railings and other surfaces. Although I received no response, they now claim they did respond. I think paint on the ceiling is certainly a quality issue they would want to address. I would not use this service again

Deb did a fantastic job and that's putting it lightly! Price was very reasonable and competitive with all other quotes. Wallpaper removal and painting were all done ahead of schedule. She even went above and beyond to match paint to our ceilings to touch up areas that were caused by dusty vents! She even sent pictures to show progress during the project. A pleasure to work with. Would recommend in a heartbeat and would use again for any additional projects we have that come up! Beyond pleased!

Zoe's Painting was amazing! I don't write reviews as often as I should, but absolutely had to in support of this crew! They messaged promptly and came out to see the job and quote. Very reasonable pricing and started the next day. Thorough prep work, taping, sanding, patching, covering and treated my home like it was their own family's. Great work ethic, super hard working, accommodating and went the extra mile several times to satisfy our needs. They were cheerful, and worked so well together that I felt really good after each day they were here. It would be impossible to only pick two top qualities but I was most impressed by their accountability and willingness to make sure everything was right! My only regret is I have but only one house to paint.

This company did an average job for an above average price. I had to chase them down to get them to finish the job, because they didn't show up when scheduled several days. Later, I found other areas they did, that needed to be corrected. I found that the paint was not very good. I also noted paint all over my brand new floor. Still, I bent over backwards to give the owner, Keenan, an opportunity to finish my project. I contacted him about touch up and repair issues, as well as issues that should have been corrected by him at no charge. I did not ask him at this point to honor his work. Instead, I offered to pay him to fix the work that should have been done right in the first place. I also gave him the job of painting my kitchen. We scheduled the first project, the repairs and touch up, for Friday June 18th, 2021. He never showed up and never called. Later that evening I found an email from him with an excuse as to what happened and asking me to please reschedule. I thought long and hard, and decided to give him the benefit of the doubt. I sent him a reply and we rescheduled for Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021. That was actually the day the kitchen was scheduled, so it was obviously behind schedule. I was very anxious to get the work done, because I had to go back to work in July. Wednesday came and went. No show, no call, no text. Thursday afternoon I received a very weak text apologizing that his guy couldn't get out to help me. Help me? Keenan was supposed to come himself and do the work. I won't be treated this way, especially when I am paying for work to be done. In the time he was working for me, he supposedly had an accident in his company truck, supposedly had his truck stolen, and had employees supposedly not show up. These were the excuses given for not showing up and not calling. I do NOT recommend this company at all.
