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 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 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 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.

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.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

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.

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.

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.

I had a very positive experience with H&M Painting. Humberto was very helpful, easy to work with, and efficient. The quote for interior painting was very reasonable compared to others we recieved and included the cost of paint which I appreciated. The finished product looks great. I plan to use H&M for future painting projects. I'd definitely recommend!

We had a great experience. Our basement was painted in record time and the job looks professional. Mark was responsive and helpful, giving suggestions regarding the type of paint he recommended for our project and also brought along large paint swatches when he gave us a quote. I would definitely use Mark in the future for additional painting projects and would recommend him to others.

Beth did an outstanding work with painting the interior walls in our house. She worked with us on the schedule for painting all the different rooms and was very patient when we had to select the colors, even provided some feedback on the color selection. She is honest and does an excellent work and completed the painting on time. We really like the new paint in our house and Beth did a great job. She did come back to finish touching up few spots. I highly recommend Beth for any painting services.

Had them come back out twice. Edging still a mess. Sloppy-paint splatters on flooring and furniture, and had to unclog massive amounts of dry paint from laundry sink. After spending thousands, I will spend a good Amount of my Christmas break fixing paint. Deeply disappointing.

We used Project Painting for painting the exterior of our house and for painting two bathrooms. I am giving them 4 stars because I had to have them come back a couple times and repaint some interior areas. Francis was great about this. He also coordinated contractors to fix some exterior wood areas that had rotted. He replace them and painted those areas. I liked how he coordinated everything and we didn’t have to find contractors to do the work.

I really went out on a limb, put all of my eggs in one basket. Got a new house, wanted the bedrooms painted quickly. Found Shawn, read his reviews and just went with him - didn't look at any other painters. WOW, did I luck out! Shawn has a wonderful personality and did a great job painting my 3 bedrooms. In fact, I am about to contact him and see when he can come back and do more painting! If you have painting to get done, I would definitely hire Shawn. Please wait until all my painting projects are done though. :)

We hired Marcia to paint a large portion of our new home before we moved in. She is kind and very responsive, but I cannot recommend hiring her for painting. Here is a summary of our experience: - Attention to detail: lines between walls and ceiling were not clean, and there was a lot of paint on the woodwork. She explained that this was due to paint bleeding through the tape, but I would expect someone to proactively clean this up. Family members cleaned a good deal of this up after Marcia left. There were also areas where we could see large brush strokes, unblended paint, and spotty coverage. - Cleanliness: We found paint splatters on the floor (including the carpet) and sinks that we spent time removing. - Transparency: We thought Marcia was doing all the work, but she had individuals come without asking us. We only knew this because a relative happened to be in our home when someone arrived before Marcia. - Inappropriate painting. We found a wall that someone had painted large letters on. Not only is this unsettling and not OK, but we now must pay someone to sand and repaint this wall. (picture attached) Marcia came back to fix some things, but we can still see areas that need to be fixed. There was also paint scraps all over the floor that dried because they weren’t cleaned up by her and we needed to pick them off the floor (picture attached). The remainder of the house was painted by someone else at a lower cost and with higher quality.
