Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How often should you paint your house's exterior?

Expert opinion is mixed, but the general range is five to 10 years. However, this depends on many factors. Houses in harsh climates with extreme temperatures, lots of dust or ice or intense sunlight may need more frequent paint jobs than those in temperate climates. Also, wood houses will need new paint more often due to the changes within the wood itself. You should also consider painting the outside of your house if you plan to sell it.

What is the best exterior house paint?

Acrylic paints are generally considered good options for today’s home exterior paint jobs. You can also choose an oil-based or latex (water-based) paint. Also, look into specialty paints for your doors, roof, gutters, siding and other exterior surfaces.

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.

What colors should I paint my house exterior?

You have many options when it comes to paint colors. For example, an off-white creates a traditional look, and it looks great with a bright door to contrast it. Yellow is a happy color that, while light blue is reminiscent of an oceanfront style. Gray houses are also on trend, providing a classy and neutral tone that remains warm and inviting.

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.

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.

Is it worth it to hire a painter to paint my house's exterior?

It is nearly always worth it to hire a painter to paint your home’s exterior. While you may feel comfortable painting a small, one-story home, anything with multiple stories, dormers or other complexities are best left to a pro.

Additionally, it’s best to let the pros handle older homes. Any time extensive prep work is needed — such as repairing chipping, bubbling, cracking or peeling paint, or fixing caulking and substrate issues — a pro can  handle it.

Can I paint my own house exterior?

While you may choose to paint a door, ground-level window trim and other parts of your house’s exterior, it’s really a job best left to the professionals. One of the main reasons is experience. An experienced painter knows how to handle the prep work, spot problems and identify sources of future trouble, all while getting the job done more efficiently. They are also experienced with spending long hours on tall ladders. If you want high-quality work, it’s best to hire a professional painter near you

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a painter during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to use virtual tools for communication. If you’re hiring local interior and exterior painters, contact them to see if they’ll set up a video call to assess your project. During this call, they can get a feel for what needs to be done and may be able to give you a price quote. 

Discuss potential plans and strategies for getting the work done safely. And ask whether they accept virtual or digital payments.

Incredibly impressed by the exterior painting of our house. They power-washed and painted the outside (brick and wood), as well as the shutters and door. Everything looks clean and well-done. Very competitively priced. They even put up our new mailbox. Will absolutely use them again for any of our painting needs.

Derek & his painting crew did a great, (and quick job) of getting the old lakehouse painted on the exterior before the rainstorms plowed through the lake areas! He was also very observant, and had good suggestions in the estimate. I would recommend him to anyone.

Marcos did a fantastic job painting our house. He was very helpful with providing an on-site quote and was responsive to all of our questions about what paint to buy and how the process would go. He painted the front exterior and 3 interior rooms all for a fair price. And the best part is that we love how it all turned out! Highly recommend!

Thank you, Tex Painting!! I hired Tex Painting to paint the exterior of my house. Scott was flexible with my schedule and made a late afternoon appointment for the initial quote and George was right on time for that quote. George was friendly, professional and explained the job thoroughly. I appreciated that I received a written quote that afternoon! The painter was meticulous and the end result is beautiful! What a difference a coat of paint makes! I highly recommend Tex Painting and would definitely hire them again.

We had a terrific experience working with 5 Point Paint Pros for our exterior paint project! They were incredibly professional and truly provided a value-added service. Sam even set up a color consultant appointment with a notable designer. Their paint job transformed our house from dated and boring to a modern and bold! I would highly recommend 5 Point!

From beginning with receiving a quote until the end of the service, everyone we dealt with was extremely professional. We had our entire exterior painted. They fixed and replaced and rotted boards, filled any imperfections on the siding and fascia, removed any old nails, unneeded wires, power washed the exterior, etc, before painting. The crew worked very fast and cleaned any messes afterwards. Our house was finished in 3 days! There was even a misunderstanding with the quote and they fixed it quickly and didn’t charge us an arm and a leg or try to update us with anything! We are so happy with the finished paint job. Our house looks amazing!

had the exterior of two 4-plexes painted. Both required significant caulking and trim repair to prevent leaks. Caulking, trim repair, and painting were all done to my satisfaction. Rick was punctual, communicated well, and was easy to work with. I would certainly use them again and would recommend them to others.

Johnny and his crew did amazing work at a great price. Hired for exterior and interior painting. They had a very high attention to detail and noticed some things I hadn’t and worked with me to make sure they were included in the job within my budget. They went above and beyond, making sure to remove shelves to paint inside closets and didn’t get any paint on the cabinet hardware. Very impressed. I will definitely hire them again for painting, and possibly tile or floor work as well.

Martin and his crew just completed painting the exterior of our home and it turned out great. Their prep work and attention to detail on our brick home was noticeable, and the end result is exactly what we envisioned. Martin is terrific and I highly recommend his services.

Everyone should hire Derek and his team. They are professional, courteous, on time, and honest. And more than fair when it comes to estimates. They tackled my exterior home paint project like champs, and it came out beautiful! I couldn't be happier. Thank you, Derek!!

Derek responded quickly to my request. My 75-year-old house was in great need of a facelift. He and his team repaired siding, stained the deck, and did a nice job painting the exterior. He addressed everything listed in the estimate and charged a fair price.

Sky-Lan did a very professional job of painting the exterior of our two-story home. Several neighbors have seen the quality of work and requested bids for their homes. The owner, Skylar Landry, was on the job site every day which allowed me to make some changes in how I wanted the window trim to be painted. Overall, I found Sky-Lan to be an excellent company to work with.
