"My husband and I have used this company for various projects to date. They are by far a stand out company and someone you would send to your grandmothers’ house blindly to do work. They are very knowledgeable and can help guide you through color choices and types of paint. I find that that they hold a very high level of integrity. They will go above and beyond. Its refreshing to know when I hire them I do not have to watch them. I can give them a job, they will advise me on the best process or paint or color and once I give them the okay, undoubtedly it will be done properly. Our first experience with this company has held true to every experience we have had with them. We purchased a home and a move in date just 3 days before Christmas. We did not know about this particular company however had met them at the paint store as we started our project and I found them to be very open and friendly, just goo character. I was immediately impressed and it stuck with me. We had already hired another company to do our work. With 6 weeks to get our project done, the other company had extreme difficulty meeting any deadline and the work was by far unsatisfactory, jagged lines, patchy areas and unpainted areas we were told were painted. It put us in a very difficult position to meet our move in date. We made the decision to let this other company go. In turn I called painters I had met in the store the one day, STP Painting. I explained the situation and had them come over and look at the mess created and left for us to deal with. Paint on woodwork, terribly jagged edges around all the ceilings and so many more things they had to correct or repaint. At this point we had only two weeks and we were supposed to move in. They went out of their way to get us in our house by the deadline so our family could enjoy Christmas in our new home as we all had planned. They squeezed us in. Working nights, early mornings, spare moments and weekends -to help us. The company was very professional and I still cannot believe the amount of work they accomplished in that short time, all levels the house is around 4200 sq. ft. They were incredible, all of them. Since that project we hired them to paint the exterior and interior of another home and I cannot compliment them enough. We have had so many positive comments on the exterior of that home by passer byers and how quickly it was accomplished. We have referred them numerous times to our friends all of which are very satisfied as well. We have them on the slate to do other work for us again. I look forward to always working them. Fair, honest knowledgeable and just great people. STP Painting is the best, and I’ve been around a long time! "

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 $200 to $2,500. 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 do painters cost?

The national average cost for an interior painter ranges between $450 and $900. 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 does a painter charge per room?

The cost to paint a room will vary based on the size of the room, the type of paint you select, any ceiling or trim work needed, and any repairs needed. If no repairs or other additional work is needed, painting a room with contractor-grade paint could range from $1 to $2 per square foot, including materials. Selecting a luxury paint (some cost more than $100 per gallon) will certainly increase your house painting costs. Here are some additional examples of average house painting costs, per room:

  • 12x12 room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 12x12 room with an 8-foot ceiling: about $100
  • 14x16 master bedroom with a 9-foot ceiling: about $150
  • 14x16 master bedroom with an 8-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 16x16 living room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $175
  • 16x16 living room with a 20-foot ceiling: starting at $225
