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 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.

Reviews for Ballwin painters

Would never use these guys again. They were not careful at all and dripped paint everywhere (carpet, wood floors)! Plus they didn’t paint all of our stairway and didn’t mask off any areas around doors. There were certain spots on the ceiling we had to remind them to touch up after they got paint on them.

I Can’t believe before and after paintings for a dry wall.Really appreciate Abbas for all his hard work,dedication,punctuality and responsibility. Initially he told might take 3 days but done in 1&1/2 day with a cleaner finishing touch. We got the garage dry wall painted and basement dry wall with a minimum price. I strongly recommend to go with A plus Painting.👍

Dave worked around the weather to get my outdoor paint job completed. He kept me up to date on when he could start (exterior painting in November takes some flexibility). He was very professional and exceeded expectations.

I am so glad that we chose Home Again Painting once we realized we were in over our heads on this project. We learned pretty quickly that painting is genuinely a labor of love; and Brittany was an exceptional choice to knock out the painting job for our new home. Brittany was responsive, professional and pleasant. She worked right around all of the contractors doing other jobs in our home and didn’t miss a beat. That’s all in addition to the fact that she does stellar work! She is officially my go-to for any future painting projects. *Photos coming as soon as the other contractors finish up.

Blake is a great guy who does a high quality painting job for a very reasonable cost. He takes his job seriously and pays a lot of attention to details. He works hard and long hours to make sure his customer is fully satisfied. He can do any size job. He works alone and doesn’t have much overhead cost like other vendors which makes him less expensive. He painted the interior of my 3000 sq ft house and did an excellent job. I will hire him again when I need any painting job.

I hired John for the shutters and the door. He did a fantastic job painting them. After I hired him for indoor painting, wall patching, installation of my cooktop and dishwasher…. Every time his work was perfectly done. I wish I knew him before it would save me a lot money and time. Thank you John so much for your help

I retained Mitch to paint the ceilings in my house which are both standard and cathedral. He sprayed the popcorn ceilings with custom tinted paint. *Meticulous in protecting my furniture/carpet/light fixtures/sidewalls with plastic and canvas tarps. Absolutely no damage or specs of paint anywhere. *Perfect even application applying both directions so end result is no spray lines but consistent even finish. *Fair and highly reasonable pricing. *Punctual and started/completed project on time and on date we agreed to. No jerking around. *Pleasant and easy-going personality, straight-forward, conscientious, and professional. *Strong work ethic. Worked hard at steady pace and did not poke around or cut corners. *Exceptional end product. Exceeded my expectation. I recommend Mitch without reservation.

Brian Johnson gave us a quote for painting a few rooms in our house. The day before he was scheduled to begin the job, he tripled the price. We were very disappointed in his lack of professionalism and frustrated that he wasted so much of our time. I would not recommend his company.

Aldi was a pleasure to have doing our painting project. His work was excellent, his demeanor so nice to work with, and his pricing and availability made it possible for us to complete our move-in. I have already asked to be put back on his schedule for another project. Do not hesitate to hire this man—he and his work are just fabulous.

I called Mike last week and today I have a freshly painted Master Bath. He did a great job and was in and out before noon. I had previously been quoted twice the amount Mike charged and was told it would take two men two days to do it. So happy I chose Mike for this job. Will use him again I’m sure.

Caesar Castro did exterior paint work for me. He answered messages very quickly, came to give an estimate at the time we planned and gave a very fair estimate. He was very polite and very professional. His work was done well, neatly and carefully. He was very willing to make minor changes in the work we planned and explained clearly about what he was doing. He is a hardworking young man trying hard to build his business. I would highly recommend him and would employ him again.
