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.

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.

Mr. Stuart was prompt in giving me an estimate and completing the painting. He did an excellent job. I will use him again.

Jeff and his brother did a great job, although the price originally quoted turned out to be $100 more. I would have had others who quoted on the project come and give me their prices had I known there was a price difference in applying an oil based paint vs latex paint. They had to move a large entertainment piece of furniture. Did not notice until 2 days later that it was placed back too close to outside door. Jeff promised he would take care of the issue.

William and Stephanie were very professional and did a wonderful job repainting the trim and staining the doors and shutters on our house. We really enjoyed getting to know them and would recommend them to anyone! We will definitely be using them in the future for any of our other painting or staining needs.

Will recently painted my entire interior, including walls, trim, sheetrock and ceiling repairs, and other miscellaneous touchups. He was very prompt, completed the project as advised and did an excellent job! He even corrected problems that the previous painter created and was very helpful regarding other miscellaneous home projects. I will definitely use Will again. Very nice trustworthy person!

Jeff did a fantastic job! We recently hired Jeff to paint our house. He showed up on time each day. He was very easy to work with, his prices are very reasonable, and the quality of his work is excellent. My wife and I are very happy with the job he did and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a painter.

I have worked construction, overseen projects even hiked and hung drywall in multi story office buildings in my lifetime. I know a lot about what it takes to organize and follow through with a project without costly problems. This young man seems to understand that too. Within minutes of the post Jack (Eddie) Stuart was working hard to win the job and made contact right away giving me several references from industry guys I knew of and a few individuals i didn't but I could tell demanded quality work at a fair price. Seeing that Eddie is the son of the owner of a long time and successful painting company that services commercial and residential projects in our area, Eddie knew his stuff about what it takes to do the job right. His eagerness to see the job first hand, his eye opening walk through highlighting areas that were not as I expected was very appreciated. He helped me make my materials list, showed me real samples of paints I could use and left no stone unturned to ensure our business went smoothly without surprises. Stress free, big paint company quality with a small crew feel and price. It's a no brainer decision, in my opinion, to just call Eddie. Great job kid.
