Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

Soleil was everything you'd want in a painter. He provided exceptional quality for a fair price. He was quick and clean. I will certainly hire Soleil again for all my painting needs, both interior and exterior.

Had a great experience working with the crew at Galvez for painting the exterior of our home. The quality of the work was exceptional, and they were extremely reasonably priced. They connected me carpenter that worked on our porch and back deck replacing the deck boards and railings. They timed the painting to finish just after to touch up all the areas. Would highly recommend Galvez and will definitely reach out in the future. Thanks Medardo and team!

Antonio and his crew did an amazing job painting the exterior of my two family house. Antonio was one of the nicest contractors you’ll ever meet and I can’t say enough good things about him. You can’t find the quality and competitive prices that Antonio provides anywhere. I would highly recommend his company to anyone. It was an absolute pleasure to do business with Taracenas Painting!

Firmino and Pierre were a pleasure to work with and did an outstanding job. We hired them for full exterior painting of our house and garage (wood shingles, trim, foundation, window boxes, & doors), some wood rot repair and broken wood shingle replacement, and for interior painting of our three season porch (floor, wall and trim). They were appropriately diligent in their prep work, which included power-washing the exterior, sanding, priming on bare wood spots, taping, window wrapping, tarps, etc. They even assisted with moving furniture and landscaping materials to ensure they could access difficult to reach areas, and placed them all back when the job was completed. They checked in with us on design questions, and met all of our needs when we added on to the scope mid-project. We have young children under the age of 2.5, and with the summer weather they spent a lot of time outdoors while the work was under way. I was concerned about paint chips, debris and equipment in and around the house, but they did everything they could to limit disruption and ensure safety. They kept tools, paint and equipment in our garage when it wasn't in use, and cleaned/removed debris every single night with leaf blowers and brooms. Honestly, they went above and beyond in every aspect of their work. Firmino and Pierre communicated effectively and we are absolutely in love with the end product. We have (and will continue to) recommended him to everyone in our neighborhood. And needless to say, we will be enlisting them for all of our painting needs going forward.
