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 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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

American Dream Painting did a fabulous job repairing my daughter's bedroom. They painted the walls, ceiling and trim within a day. They were able to accommodate my schedule with very short notice. There cost was competitive. We have numerous other painting jobs that we will be requesting from them in the future.

USA Construction & Painting was very professional and punctual. They were able to repair minor to moderate wall damage as well as paint four (4) rooms and ceiling. I was very pleased with the quality of their work and would recommend their services.

We were very impressed with James and his crew. Pleasant and professional to work with. They nicely restored some “glittered” ceilings back to their original form and painted ceilings and trim work throughout the house. All at a very competitive price. Will certainly call on them for any future painting needs

Steve and his team were a pleasure to work with. I hired Superior Custom Painting to paint my basement ceiling, and they knocked it out of the park. They stayed in constant communication with me, made sure I understood the process, informed me of changes, and exceeded my expectations. I will absolutely be hiring them again.

I hired Wilson painting to power wash and paint the exterior of my house. They were always on time, cordial and very professional. The results are outstanding and the price very fair. They are not afraid of danger since they had to reach the top of the house with our patio on the way. I definitely reccomend them and I'll use them again for future project.

With my restricted time schedule since I am handicapped gave them a challenge regarding time restraints. They were able to work around the situation and the job was perfect including Tracy's suggestion of the paint color. We will definitely use them when we need another paint job done in our home.

My experience with Tracy Richardson and Creative Painters Plus was wonderful! I had major time limitations to get a bedroom and bathroom painted before having out-of-town company the next week. Tracy came over, assessed what I wanted painted and helped coordinate colors with me! That was really appreciated on my end. It was nice to have a "female" opinion on what I wanted to do. She had color choices with her and I picked them on the spot. Then, to my complete delight, had a painter to my house at the top of the next week. The painter that came was neat, professional and fast. I have had painting done professionally before and I was never so impressed. He cleaned everything up when he was fininished and you'd never know that he was there except for the great new painted rooms! Beautiful job, great experience.

I am in the process of selling my house and tried to touch up a few spots on the wall before our Open house with leftover paint. Unfortunately, I grabbed the wrong paint can. So I had dark paint spots all on my walls. John was quick to come assess the situation. He helped pick the perfect color to cover up my "oops" haha He was able to get someone out to me in 2 days. Ron was the painter who came out and he did a fantastic job!! It is obvious he actually cares about the work he does. I may have even snagged a few painting tips from him while observing him for a bit! It cost a little more than I had hoped, but honestly, the quality of work made it worth it. Thanks again John and Ron! I would recommend Prep Right 😊

I don’t usually write reviews but without a doubt I had to. Ascend painting has been by far the best company I’ve ever worked with on my home renovation. They went above and beyond what was expected and going the extra mile to make sure I was happy and taking on last minute requests to satisfy my needs. James set a straight schedule to meet my schedule and was on time, tentative and kept me updated every morning upon arrival and every evening upon leaving. Always kept in contact prior to beginning the job, during and ending. Made it very convenient that he was able to text and call whenever needed. James and his crew did a fantastic job of painting my house. The paint job was immaculate and done perfect. His pricing blew all other competitors out of the water. Made it very convenient that he brought all paint and materials with him. Did a great job covering carpet and furniture to protect it from paint. I will definitely be recommending him to my family and friends as well as anyone reading this review, as well as will be scheduling more work with him soon. Don’t waste your Time looking else where as I did the research for you. When it comes to pricing, quality, timing, professionals, and friendly faces this is your stop.

James and his crew did an amazing job painting the interior of our new house. James provided a detailed quote and called out areas that didnt need to be painted (certain ceilings and trim that were in good shape) to help us save costs. He and his team worked nights and the weekend to make sure the job was complete prior to the movers coming. I was impressed w his professionalism, transparency, and the quality of his work... and the kids love the the chalk walls in their rooms!

We had a tight deadline and CPP delivered a quality job on time. Having to select paint colors for such a big job was overwhelming to me, and Tracy's expertise with color selection helped steer us in the right direction. Thank you, to Tracy and your crew, for getting us into our new home for Christmas!
