Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

What should I expect from a painting contractor?

You should expect an estimate based on an actual examination of the house, as well as a plan for exactly what the painter will do. During the job, the painters should behave professionally while working as efficiently as possible to complete the job in a reasonable timeframe. Afterward, the only evidence of the paint job should be the paint itself — a professional contractor will clean up thoroughly once a job is done.

I had a great experience with Wilson painting. They were able to paint the interior of my condo on short notice and well under the budget of the competition. They are very quick to respond to emails and provided frequent updates about the status of the project. I’ll definitely be using them again for future painting projects!

After weeks of research in finding the best painter for my house, I could not be more happy with my decision to choose Bella Painting. They did everything the way I wanted. Their team was very skilled and professional. They were flexible and understanding, so it was easy to talk to them and communicate any extra requests to make sure the painting was perfect and just the way I wanted. As a perfectionist I could not find any flaws throughout the house. Their prices were the most reasonable out of all the paint companies I researched. They finished all the work and did not leave anything for me to clean up. They came in, did a perfect job, and left the house just as clean as it was before. I would comfortably recommend Bella Painting to all my friends.

Jake completed a large interior paint job for me in my home. He was very efficient and completed the project in the projected time. He was even able to add in another room I wanted painted at the last minute. Jake was responsive to all my questions and I appreciated his communication throughout the project, keeping me updated on his progress and any questions he had about the space. The quality of his work was great and his prices were very competitive with other contractors. I would highly recommend Jake’s painting services.

These guys did an excellent job painting the outdoor trim of the house. They repaired any damaged wood and caulked as needed. We also used them to paint several rooms in the house repairing holes in walls were needed. Everything came out great. They cleaned up everything even helping me by cutting up an old door to fit in the garbage. I would highly recommend.

I hired Roca's to do some exterior painting on my old brick house. Doors, trim, soffits and fascia boards all needed to be done. Roca's worked with me as I needed some gutter work done before the painting started and worked through Memorial Day weekend to get the job done. Roca's truly cares about their customers and made sure I was happy with the end result. Would hire again.

Responded quickly with a very fair and reasonable price. Scheduled the job showed up on time and knocked out two bedrooms rather quickly. I forgot I would need the closet painted as well and going from dark color to light that would require 3 coats was not a problem. It was included at a really great price. Would definitely recommend to everyone if you want fast, fairly priced, quality work go with USA construction and painting.

Ami is the best painter we’ve ever had come into our home. She is more prepared than anyone we’ve previously hired and is meticulous and hard working. I can’t believe how straight her lines are and how she didn’t mind going around a bunch of windows or painting the ceilings. We could not be happier and we hope to have her come back and paint more soon!! An absolute pleasure and true professional- great communication and shows up when she says she will be there!! Even handled getting locked out (by us by mistake) with grace, kindness, and patience. Thank you again!!! Everything was exactly as we asked and looked better than hoped for!!

The crew arrived on time, were polite and friendly, did a great job patching and painting my hallway, and gave the lowest priced bid we got. They also made sure I had ample time to inspect the work before even sending payment info. Would hire again!

Daniel did an excellent job painting and finished within the tight timeframe I needed the work down. He is very responsive and communicated with me throughout the whole process, sending photos as the work progressed. He also did an excellent job on repairing some window frame and drywall damage. I would definitely hire him again.

From the first time Hillary came out to give me a quote I liked her. She is no-nonsense, takes photos, asks questions. Her quote was written and itemized and fair. Mine was a fairly complicated painting job; with a little crowbar work, mudding, and sanding. She even removed two layers of wallpaper! She brought her team member, Scott and the worked quietly and steadily until it was done, 3 days later, as promised. I recommend Jane of All Trades highly! I will certainly call them again. 👍🏼
