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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Reviews for Kansas City painters

I was in a bind with needing a house painted ASAP due to cracked chipping paint. Donnie came out THAT day to assess the issues, and his crew was out the next day to finish painting the entire house in less than 48hours. Incredible job by a great crew of guys. I highly recommend Donnie for your painting needs- highly trusted. Our house looks like an entirely new home.

Nice work! But he uses flat paint... I think he should specify that when giving a bid. My preference is gloss paint. But I'm happy with the work!

I hired E&L Interior to paint two large accent walls in my apartment. They showed up on time and provided a very reasonable quote compared to the competition. Most importantly, they did a very thorough job making sure that both walls were painted with close attention to detail and ensured that I was happy with the end result before leaving. I would highly recommend E&L Interior Painting for anybody needing interior painting services!

He responded quickly and was easy to contact regarding the project. He painted 3 bedroom ceilings after we just had new carpet installed. He did excellent work and was very careful not to spill anything. Would highly recommend for future painting projects!

They did an AMAZING job painting our main living areas of our home. In and out in 3 days and everything was clean and tidy. They patched up some uneven areas and nail holes on the walls too. Would definitely use them again for another painting project in the future!

The job was done safely with attention to detail. After power-washing peeling paint was scraped and primed. Every joint was caulked. Some rotten places were repaired. Several suggestions offered were excellent. They painted then scraped and cleaned the windows. They were not fast but I liked the slow methodical safe approach.

After posting a need for some interior painting work on Thumbtack, Josh from C.F. Painting replied immediately, offering to drop by our home that day to provide an estimate. He came by, measured, gave us an estimate, and offered to start in a couple of days once we we accepted his proposal. The work took about 2-1/2 days. They matched our existing paint, taped off areas, removed hooks, patched gouges in the drywall, installed new baseboard, installed new faceplates as needed, painted and moved some of our stored items out of the way of the walls. We were on site for most of the work. Josh and his crew were prompt, trustworthy, detailed, and thorough. We would happily use them again to address the rest of our home.

Milt painted 5 rooms and is fixing some paneling. He is bar none the cleanest, most precise, and overal best painter I've ever hired, and I painted houses for 15 years. I highly recommend him. Fairly priced and fast. Honest and is a gentleman. I felt safe with he and his nephew in my home.

I will save you a lot of time by doing your homework for you! Let me first start by saying that I interviewed 5 painters and chose CF Painting which was the best decision I could have made. From the start, Josh was professional, timely and very responsive. I was impressed with the customization of the quote-each room was itemized and all details were in writing as we discussed during the walk through. We recently moved into an old home in Brookside and had almost the entire interior painted. It was a big project- multiple paint coats and a ton of wood work, sprayed our walk in closet/dining room/master toilet area, and had our original front door stripped and repainted. We also had to have some drywall repaired in our mudroom......but CF painting was the right team for the job. Josh's entire team was punctual, easy to communicate with and top-notch painters. A special thanks to Justin, Wes & EB for your detailed and thorough work. Josh was so easy to work with and so responsive during the entire project it put me at ease. We have recently had multiple out of town guests who have all raved about the paint job! Like I said, I did your homework for you. You won't be disappointed with CF Painting! We will definitely be using CF Painting next year for some exterior work and our 3rd floor! See just a few pics below!

This company was great. I had 4 companies with high reviews listed on Thumbtack come to our home to give estimates. I’m really happy we went with Tony’s company. He educated me on the painting process which helped weed out the competition. Tony was quick to respond all through the process, fair with the price, and sent out a hard working crew. The main guy on the painting crew’s name was Kevin. He and the other painters were very respectful, professional and receptive to feedback and asked questions before painting an area in question. I would definitely recommend this company to others.

I highly recommend CF Painting! Josh proactively reached out to me via Thumbtack message after I put in my work request to have my fireplace mantle and staircase handrails painted. From the start he was very professional and communicative, making it an easy process to get a price quote and schedule the project all via messaging (which made my life so much easier). Both Josh and one of his painters Michael were punctual, professional, and did a great job painting my mantle and staircase handrails from white to black. I love the before and after. They also did a great job keeping the work space clean and cleaning up after themselves when the job was done. It couldn't have been easier to hire and work with CF Painting, and I'm so happy with the results. I will definitely be hiring them for future projects!

Mr. Tim Miller - TMC Contractors was fantastic to work with! He's extremely detail oriented and listens closely to what you tell him you want done. They arrived exactly when promised, and did a perfect job painting the entire inside of our 2,000 sq ft home. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to others. My realtor was quite impressed with TMC also and told us that the painting looked terrific. Our home is currently for sale and can be viewed at Zillow.com - 7802 N Amoret Ave, Kansas City, MO. Check out Tim's great - whole house interior paint work. Thanks Tim!
