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.

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.

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.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

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.

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.

We wanted a really dark green paint over half-painted plaster walls, and Sal came out to paint it but it didn't cover really well... I think it was my fault because the room was about 50 degrees that day!! So he fixed it with no hassle and it looks amazing. Very responsive, easy to work with. I'm happy I hired him.

We couldn't be happier with the work John did in our home. John put up base and crown molding, he did a great job of matching our existing crown & base, and he freshened up our existing crown to where it looks brand new. He had great suggestions for choosing the right paint colors, and we are just thrilled with how our home looks. I have already recommended John to two of my co-workers. The next time we have any painting or other projects that need to be done we are definitely calling John.

Kirk did an excellent job painting my kitchen and living room and caulked my crown molding and touched up the trim. He was professional, courteous and experienced. His price was fair and his timetable for the job was accurate. I definitely will be using his services again and encourage others to hire him as well.

He showed up at the exact start time specified, came in, set up and began working right away. He was very courteous. He cleaned up every part of the house he worked in when finished , and I am extremely happy with the results. I would hire again to paint the other rooms in my house.

Outstanding service, polite and curtious. I had a bright red bedroom that needed primer and paint to go to a neutral cremé color + the ceiling. Joe arrived on time, explained everything to me, provided covering for the floors and furniture, sanded the walls and provided patch work for holes. Overall great service; super impressed with the job. Would definitely recommend to others!

I had my whole house and garage exterior painted. ***Wow*** my experience with this company far exceeded all expectations! Tracy, a color specialist, guided me into choosing the perfect colors that would 'contemporize' my worn n' tired looking black/white '79 colonial. The transformation was nothing short of amazing! I love it. The painter did a great job. He was timely, reliable and hard working. I am very happy with this company. Kudos to Tracy and the Painter on a job well done. I would definitely hire them again for future projects.
