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.

T&P General Construction is amazing. They were easy to communicate with and they exceeded our expectations with painting our sons room, even after the decals ruined the previous paint job. We can’t wait to hire them again for our kitchen.

I cannot say enough about how easy it was to work with Tony on my painting project. he was prompt, professional, worked according to my schedule and did a fantastic job. His price was very fair. In fact him and his crew did such a great job I am hiring him to paint both of my bedrooms within the next month. He painted my livingroom, hallway and dining area and my brand new plaster ceilings. I am beyond happy with the results

Antonio and his team painted our new home. We had an initial consult with Antonio and he pointed out areas that we hadn’t thought about. His team arrived and over two days - including a snowstorm! - they painted our entryway and exterior. We will definitely have them back for future jobs this year!

Working with S and M was so easy, from scheduling a home visit for a quote to the final touch of paint everything was so smooth. Selvin communicates well, shows up on time, even gave us ideas on how to finish some surfaces and save money. The paint job is great and they even finished sooner than expected. It was a pleasure to have them in our home and we'll be sure to recommend them to our family and friends.

What a great team. Tony and crew are extremely professional and all around nice people. We just brought a house that needed the entire first floor painted. Ceilings detail molding etc. Not only did they do a great job painting, but at the end of each day they cleaned the work area and neatly put their things away so we could use the rooms. We are extremely satisfied with the quality of the work and highly recommend them. When we get ready to do the second floor rooms we will be calling them

I needed an accent wall, my kitchen island, and my stairs repainted and he did a great job. He responded same day showed up at 10 am on superbowl Sunday and had everything painted in time so it was dry before a few friends came over. He did the job quickly and effectively and cleaned up the whole area. I would definitely recommend him and will probably reach out to him again.

Reached out from Kansas to Elisabeth to help my elderly dad back in Massachusetts get several rooms stripped of wallpaper, cracks repaired, and painted. She was quick to respond and was absolutely gracious and patient in all her communications with me, my elderly father, and my sister who is deaf and lives with my dad. Even more importantly, all the work she and her crew did was beautiful meticulous and completed even more quickly than she originally quoted. My father, who is a man of few words and notoriously hard to please, couldn’t say enough good things about the work Elisabeth and her team did for him. There were several details that we never even considered that were addressed and repaired. We would hire her back in a heartbeat and are actually planning on hiring her again for some exterior work ASAP. A++ job all round!
