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.

Reviews for Louisville painters

Total Package Painting did a great paint job in my entire home. The walls look very good. I'm very satisfied with their service.

Done Right was friendly, on time, and hard workers. They did a good job at painting our cabinets. The things that keep me from giving a 5-star review is that (us rushing them a little bit might be a factor) there was one area that failed to get painted, as well as areas of sloppiness with some paint in places it shouldn't be. The cabinets were originally painted well just in a bad color, and now it seems as if they have been painted just with slight less attention to detail. The job was done well, just not perfect.

We had a wonderful experience with Five Star Painting! Not only were they more affordable than the other companies we looked into, but they were also the most respectful and professional painters we’ve ever worked with. They spent a whole day prepping the house for the paint job and then finished the whole job in 2 days (painting a 3500 sq ft house and garage). They also covered our newly landscaped yard with sheets as they sprayed our house with paint which I greatly appreciated! We will definitely hire them in the future:)

HIRE THIS MAN. HIS WORK IS THE BEST. Jeff excelled at wall preparation (what needs to be done before the paint goes on). He made sure that the surface of the wall was as smooth as possible to make the paint job looked fantastic. I used a very dark paint color that shows every little blemish; Jeff did his best to make sure I was happy with the results. I will definitly be hiring him again for future projects and will certainly recommend him to anyone who needs painting done.

Our experience with James was great! We had been burned by another painter who started our deck and didn’t finish. James was very consultative and recommended to remove the previous paint, power wash the deck and hand paint the new color. He was very professional, on time and overall great to work with. We will definitely be using him for any painting needs in the future. Highly recommend.

They painted all of our interior doors and trim work. They started the job super quick and stayed on the ball until it was completed. Great quality, and they made us feel like our project was their number one priority. Will use them for our next painting project.

This couple was so quick to set an appointment to look at the space, provide a quote, and paint my home. They did an excellent job and even fixed a wall I had damaged trying to paint the week before. On top of doing a great job they were flexible and took last minute requests and followed up with me after to make sure I still liked the work they did. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a painting company.

We hired Leslie to paint the interior of a rental property. I initially chose her because of her quick responses and ability to provide a flat quote. She was able to start the work in the timeframe we needed. Over the entire project, she was very responsive and professional in her communications. She painted all the interior walls and trim. She did a fantastic job, above and beyond. I highly recommend Leslie. As a bonus, she is an artist that also paints murals.

Sergio did a great job, painting three rooms in 2 days. The prep work before the painting was detailed and made the final product look great. He also repaired a wall that required dry wall. Looks great. He left everything clean. Definitely recommend him.
