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 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 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.

We hired 2 Lady Painters for painting kitchen cabinets and bar area. They did a very good job and assisted us with paint color, hinges, and other accessories. Highly recommend them.

Mitch helped me with painting two closets. He came on time and with COVID he kept mask on and maintained safe distance. He is very professional and delivered great quality work. I am ready to give him another painting project. I would recommend him with any paint work. I have attached before and after pictures with this review.

Brittany was very responsive. I needed to get my living, dining, and family rooms painted before Thanksgiving. She was able to provide me with an estimate and started immediately. Job well done! Brittany will be painting the remainder of my home in early 2021.

Mj was able to get into our house and get the work done in a very timely manner. The work was good, but some improvement was needed once he had left the house. There were a couple spots throughout that got painted to quick and weren’t completely covered in paint. He also missed one of the ceilings in the nook of our fireplace. He did paint our banister and railing for no additional cost. Overall, he was easy to work with and did good work.

Blake was a pleasure to work with! Painted my front door a nice slate gray it looks beautiful. He was professional and knowledgeable I will use him in the future for more projects

Contemporary was here two weeks ago to paint a ceiling. Still cleaning up white paint splatter. They managed to even get splatter on my brand new DeWalt cordless drill that I had used to take down two shelves to make the job easier. Crazy thing was, the drill was in a room that was NOT being painted!!!! When I asked one crew member about removing a piece of plastic from my kitchen island so I could eat lunch, his response was "let me do that since that's all the plastic we have". Splatter on floor, kitchen counter tops, range, refrigerator and light fixtures. If you are going for the spotted look, these are your guy's.

They arrived and got to work immediately the i through a wrench in it. I needed to change the paint color. It was too dark. They patiently adjusted the color until I was happy. The rooms look fabulous! Well done.

Book this guy! He and his crew did a fantastic job! Quality painting, polite, and conscientious! He's a young entrepreneur, another reason to book him. The primary reason, though, is that they did a great job and did it quickly!

My cabinets look amazing and it was an easy process. I was worried about the smell, not an issue at all and there was only one day where I couldn’t access my cabinets. The job is so professional, no one would believe these cabinets have been painted. I would highly recommend Vintage Workshop!

Jadyn was great to work with. I contacted him on a weekend and he responded quickly to my questions about getting my 2nd floor painted. That same day he sent me a quote. Jadyn arrived on time and completed his work thoroughly. He was very professional and I will definitely recommend him to friends and family!

If you would like to know what service you MAY get, take the time to read this. Dalton was 1.5 hours late to the quote meeting time. Granted, he did call and say he would be 45 minutes late as he was finishing at a job (totally understandable), but he was still an additional 45 minutes late thereafter. The quote was good, less than half of the other guys but he lacked professionalism. I went with him out of urgency and price. He agreed he could start on a Saturday between 8-9am. He showed up at 10 or 10:30 am saying his "buddy" was supposed to pick him up. In addition, he was at Home depot getting supplies, another reason he was late. When I worked construction, getting supplies was on my time. We were required to be at the job site at the start time. He proceeded to prep the walls well and fill all the holes, but then took an hour and a half lunch. This caused him to stay until 6 pm, then eating into my evening and daily activities as I was not comfortable with leaving him alone at my house (this was not due to him in any way, I just wouldn't leave anyone home alone in my house that I am not familiar with). He agreed to arrive again between 8 and 9 on Sunday to finish the Job. He arrived at 10 am again and claimed he had a flat tire. We spoke in the morning about my disappointment in the amount of paint on the edges of the window trim, ceiling, and floor. I expressed this was only a mud room and okay, but will be completely unacceptable in the master bath. I said "I don't care if you need to tape or what, but paint cannot be anywhere on our freshly painted trim." About 3 pm I walk in the room and see dried drips on the front of the white trim, and all along the edge of the door trim, all the way out to the face. His response: "I was going to caulk". I am by no means a pro contractor, but caulk does not cover to full depth of trim. In addition, he completely failed to prime and paint below the counter-top in the little seating area between the bathroom sinks where a stool might go. At this point, I asked him to leave as I now had to touch up multiple areas and finish the paint job in the master bath. Dalton was late to each appointment and failed to meet my specifications on acceptable quality. In addition, he showed poor time management skills and, most importantly, my dog seemed a little concerned with him being in our house.

Leah Pruitt is a master artist! I was a bit skeptical that she would actually be able to turn my bland, black fireplace into the faux marble centerpiece I had imagined, but what a success! I showed her sample design pictures I liked, and I had looked at 35+ paint options. Leah is a true professional, and still listened to my suggestions as she worked. The finished product impresses me more every time I walk past it. Leah finished it in two-thirds of the planned time-frame, too. I am thrilled ... can't wait for everyone in my family to see it. Thanks, Leah!!!
