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.

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 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.

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.

They painted my townhouse quickly and efficiently. They worked with me on my schedule. I used them again to paint the interior walls and floor of my unfinished basement. Great work.

It was a pleasure to work with Indira and Marvin and the rest of the crew. They did a great job painting the interior of my home. They were very professional and accommodating. My husband and I are very pleased with the job and would work with them again in the future.

Marvin, his brother, and their employees were all wonderful. Their bid for our interior paint job--most rooms in the house, including bathroom and kitchen--was incredibly competitive, significantly lower than that of our other contractor who we had already hired to do some other structural work. Marvin was able to accommodate us according to our tight time-frame, so that the painting could be completed and the house deep-cleaned before move-in. They worked incredibly fast but were very proficient, and our other contractor even commented on how good of a job they did. In addition, they were incredibly nice, friendly, and Marvin was very clear and quick to respond to all communications. I highly recommend Marvin and R&D for any interior painting you may have, and will hire them again in the future!

Steve and Bruce of AJ Francis were excellent. They were terrific communicators, quoted the job competitively, and had impeccable attention to detail. I very highly recommend AJ Francis for any interior painting and will be recommending them among other condo owners in my building. I couldn't be happier with the final product.

Billy was very responsive, professional, and did a great job painting the interior of my house. He was able to estimate what materials I would need and then offered to go get them himself, which was a huge help. He made sure that he accommodated my schedule, but was able to get the house done much quicker than I had anticipated, and the house looks great. I will use him again for all painting I have in my house.

Julio and his team did an amazing job replacing our carpeted floors with laminate, and also painting the entire interior of the house. We had a tight turnaround time and Julio made it work. He was very responsive, on time, and respectful of our home. Good price for the high quality of work. Would hire him again!

As a Landlord, I used Juan and his crew to turnaround 3 vacant apartments for rental. My initial thought was it was just interior painting as there were some water stain in the ceiling and walls. I'm so glad I chose Juan as he was able to pinpoint and correct plumbing and other issues that would not have been evident to a layman. He could have just simply painted as agreed and finished the job sooner leaving me with unresolved issues down the line; instead, he wanted to do the work right and I'm so grateful for that work ethic. He's reliable, trustworthy, punctual and his price is very reasonable. I would definitely use him again in future projects! HIRE HIM, you won't be disappointed!
