Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How can I find out if a painter is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a painter is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, visit your local jurisdiction or state’s government website for information.

The CISA website also provides a helpful resource: Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page is intended for a national audience and includes 16 different categories of critical infrastructure sectors. Some jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure, but not all of them do.

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.

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.

Do painters offer remote or virtual services?

Though painting has always been an in-person job, painters may be willing to offer some virtual help due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If you come across painters’ profiles that state they offer remote services, message the painters to see what those services include.

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.

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.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

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.

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.

Ezequiel and his Miracle Painting team performed a large basement painting job for me. They were professional, polite, and did an excellent job at reasonable price.

Worst experience, Lot of promise when came for quote. Says himself painter professional but did unprofessional work.. Left patches without paint, no removal of nails or electric outlets.. so paints looks incomplete.. Said 2 coats but told get primer and paint for 2 quote but later says paint is not good for one coat.. Primer was not applied equally all areas.. All tapes put to cover the doors nobs or others areas left as it is and was told that they cannot remove because of paint will come off.. But need to do it my self and seen same incomplete paint job.. I can send pictures ...Too many promise before work and not delivered.. Having said that .. Crown moulding person was awesome he did excellent job, accurate measurement and clean work..

I am extremely happy with the workmanship of Anahel and his workers. They arrived on time, did clean work and in a timely manner. He painted three of our bedrooms and two bathrooms. I definitely recommend Anahel for your painting needs.

Everything about Wilson and his crew was excellent! He was on time for our first meeting and gave me a quote shortly thereafter. My project was small—shadowbox molding and painting my diningroom. It is simply beautiful and was completed in a shorter amount of time than I was told. The crew was very pleasant and took alot of pride in their work! I will definitely hire them again! There are alot of painting companies but I’m sure none can compare to Navarro’s Painting!!

We arranged thru Miguel to have our foundation walls re-painted. Other contractors we contacted were only willing to simply scrape off the flaking paint but Miguel's first thought was to powerwash everything and then take care of any residual flaking before starting to paint. He provided a reasonable price for the job and was very flexible on the schedule as we had a conflict on the original job date. We would definitely recommend his services and will likely think of him if we have other requirements in the future.

Wow! That’s the word that best describes our experience with D&B Drywall and Painting. We had a very short window to get the interior of our house painted (ceilings, walls, trim, doors on 2 levels) and Jose and his team completed the work in 3 days. He was an absolute professional from the day he quoted the price, which was very, very reasonable , straight through to the end of the project. I’ve paid a higher price for lower quality work in the past so I consider D&B Drywall and Painting a real find. In fact we had them paint the foundation and the walk-up stairwell as well. The house looks beautiful and it’s ready to go on the market. We will definitely be using Jose and his team again!

I highly recommend Urbem Contracting! Rafael gave me a great price and produced a high quality paint job to my basement. He and his partner were extremely professional. They were on time, on budget, and easy to communicate with before, during, and after the project. The quality of the paint job was superb. I will definitely be using Urbem Contracting for many of my projects in the near future!!

Julio and his team of three men came on Thanksgiving Day and finished painting much of the common area walls in our townhome within six hours. Afterwards, they spent less than an hour cleaning up any paint droppings, sweeping floors, cleaning their equipment in our bathtub (our hose bibs were closed) and leaving the bathtub clean. Julio also quality-checked the paint job—which was certainly clean and very well-done—and even touched up the ceiling that got scuffed up by a ladder. All in all, we were very impressed with their speed and quality of work at a very reasonable price point.

José and his team did an excellent job repairing and repainting our ceiling - they were able to schedule us for a day that worked for us, took care of moving items and covering them to protect while painting, completed the work in one day, cleaned up as they left, and José checked in via phone call to confirm we were satisfied with the job. We'll definitely use José again for future painting needs!

My husband and I needed a few rooms in our new home painted last minute after we were overwhelmed trying to tackle the project ourselves. We were able to schedule an appointment on a Saturday after a walk through the day before. The crew showed up on time and the rooms look fantastic-all at a great price. We will definitely use them again for any other painting project that comes up!

Marcus & his team did a wonderful job painting all four floors of my townhome! I had two colors, one he had to mix himself. He was so careful to ensure it was mixed properly for each wall. Marcus also went out of his way to fix many things - dents in the wall from the banister placements, caulking issues, & they also painted all of the molding that needed touch-ups. I would definitely hire Marcus & his team for any future work!

Provided a fantastic service! Would definitely recommend and will likely be using again! They arrived right at 08:30 AM as he confirmed he would and went above and beyond in the prep for the painting. They corrected the inaccurately placed tape that we had put on the walls, and also moved the guest bed for us and covered it in tarp so that no stains would occur. They also moved the bed back into place after they had finished, none of which we requested! The paint job itself came out great, the corners and edges were all very meticulously done, the carpets remained clean, and they even did the ceiling and touched up the crown molding -- the room looks so good! We couldn't recommend them enough, and will be booking them again soon towards the end of the year when we re-paint our master bedroom. While his specialty is attic insulation, this job was done FAR better than we could have imagined, for an absolutely stellar rate.
