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.

Nick is a very nice guy and easy to work with on the project. He completed painting of several rooms on a whole house renovation. I would highly recommend him for any painting project.

Joe and Daniel did an excellent job of updating my dining room. The project started out as painting the dining room, but Joe and Daniel did much more than just paint the room. They gave my ceiling, which was definitely showing its age, a facelift that made it look new again. They installed my new drum pendant, tolerating my indecision on how high to hang it with incredible patience. My 67 year-old house always provides unique challenges to anyone who works on it, but Joe and Daniel conquered all those challenges good-naturedly. And they did a great job of painting too! I love my new dining room and look forward to hosting my family in it for Thanksgiving dinner this year. I will definitely use Joe and Daniel for future projects and I recommend them to anyone looking for a painting contractor.

Donnie and his crew were an absolute joy to work with. We had our trim repainted and they did a phenomenal job at a competitive bid in a timely fashion. His entire crew was very friendly and hard working. Donnie made sure to communicate with us regularly and that we were happy with everything before they were done. Would highly recommend them to anyone for paint work. We will certainly look to them first for any of our future paint work needs.

Extremely rude. Zero communication. Planned on a job and instead of calling and communicating he picks up his phone angry —- tells me he left the site and needed paint hours ago. I’m sorry we were under the impression you were doing prep work there was no need for the negative confrontation.

Milt did a wonderful job painting our nursery. He got started just a few days after I contacted him, and finished the job promptly. He is very dedicated to his work. In fact, when he came by to verify his estimate, he actually took some of the built-in shelving home so that he could begin that part of the project right away. I wish I could post pictures to display his attention to detail. We utilized 3 different bright colors in a small room. All the corners are perfect. He even touched up mistakes from our prior painting such as where the old color was on the baseboards, ceiling, etc. I would definitely recommend him and would hire him again.

John recently painted our kitchen cabinets. He did the work while we were out of town; we trusted him completely with access to our home. He worked quickly and completed the project on time. We love the way the cabinets turned out and felt that his price was very fair! We would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

In an age when it can be difficult to find a professional contractor, working with Chris at PTS was refreshing. Not only did Chris over communicate project status, he made multiple trips to our property to make sure the work was complete and we were happy. His staff was equally as cordial and punctual. Our project was an entire home interior paint job. If you're looking for anything similar, checkout PTS.

SUCH a great find! I got 3 different quotes for painting the inside of my prairie village house, and all of them were backed up until January. SO I took a chance on thumbtack - and modern colors bc they had no previous reviews on this app. Jared came out and gave me a quote (much less than the previous 3 referrals), and like the crazy person I am, I called all of their references to make sure this wasn't too good to be true! They did an awesome job. Nice honest people ... 🙌❤️
