Jason was fantastic, and I highly recommend Mildew Magic Softwash. I had two projects -- the power/soft washing and cleaning of my driveway/front walkway and also cleaning and staining my back deck. From the initial free consultation and estimate to the finished product, and everything in between, Jason was responsive, professional, and offers high quality work at a competitive price. He never tried to "sell" me on anything I didn't need or want, but also took the time to talk with me to ensure we were on the same page with what I was looking for with both projects. I appreciated the customer service as well as the high quality work. I will absolutely go back for future projects without hesitation! Check out Mildew Magic Softwash!See more

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.

I hired Paintzilla at the last minute to paint our front porch and door. James was prompt, friendly, very professional. I hadn’t decided on paint colors when he arrived. I didn’t even have the paint yet. He was so patient and took time to show me color swatches. Made it much easier. Pleasure to work with. Front porch looks great.

I am so glad we went with James Painting! Santiago and the team did an incredible job, especially on such short notice. Such an amazing team, I had a great time getting to know them. They did a perfect paint job in such a short amount of time. I would highly recommend to anyone considering getting work done!

Amazing work! R&M quoted me on Thumbtack, met with me on a Friday and came back to clean and paint my kitchen the following Monday, all in one single day. I love my kitchen now! We had layers of grime around and on our stove, behind our fridge, on the walls, and on our cabinets, from the previous owners. And our kitchen was painted midnight blue, so it was incredibly dark aside from being dirty. I chose a bright aqua color and gave my paint chip to Ricardo on Friday, so he could pick up his paint brand of choice in that color. I didn't really have an opinion on paint brands, but he did thankfully! Ricardo and Monica (or Monique, apologies, I am terrible with names) came early on Monday and got to work on the grime. My kitchen looks SO AMAZINGLY clean and bright now. Also, we can use our stove again. There had been cooked on grime that was preventing us from using all of our stove top before, and we couldn't figure out how to clear it out ourselves.

Armando was professional in all interactions. His painters missed a few details but Armando made sure they were corrected. I will use APR Painting again in the future.

Did an amazing job. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the work they provided. I will continue to hire Mario for all of our painting needs. Our house looks amazing.

I was very pleased. Mario was punctual and professional, neat as a pin and clearly a very experienced painter. He was also friendly. I'd call him again for another painting project.

Overall, we were not thrilled with our experience with Roca's Painters. Jose always showed up on time, was very nice, and they finished the job in less time than they originally quoted. However, the quality of work was not great. There are several spots that we will have to go back and touch up and many areas where paint was dripped onto surfaces and not cleaned up including trim, our back splash, kitchen counter, and our stove. I don't think we'll be hiring them again for future painting needs.

Geo did a great job on my house and was very competitive with his quote. He worked around my schedule and everything was always cleaned by the time I got home. I hope to use him again to paint my exterior.

Geo did an excellent job at my house. The 4 rooms he painted look great! He was very professional and on time. The quote he gave me was a fair price for the work. I would recommend Geo to my friends and neighbors.

Mr. Diaz did such a great job! I already have plans to hire him in the new year to paint the rest of my home and remove the rest of my awful popcorn ceiling! Carlos was courteous, efficient and cleaned up the job as he went. Definitely recommend!

Roger and his crew are INCREDIBLE. They arrived and were hard at work from the second they got here. They were polite, courteous of our home, fast, and did a fantastic job on painting a tough space. Looking forward to hiring them again in the future. 10/10 recommend.

Lea is a nice person, however, I feel compelled to say that from the very beginning things went from bad to worse. Did we get the job for free? Yes, however what has not been mentioned are the following facts: Lea bid the job and said it would take 1 day to 1.5 days- She did not start on time ( a day late) do to a tragedy. No issue, we accommodated. The painter was late every single day, except for the last day. My Mother In Law was coming into town (which she knew when the job was quoted) and I was worried about the smell as she is elderly. Lea assured me not to worry as they use special low fume paint. The room still smells like paint and it has been nearly 2 weeks. It took 4 days and the job was not done in the manner it was supposed to be done. I had to pay for a hotel for my Mother in law for 3 nights, between that, the professional cleaners, etc the job was the furthest from free but actually cost me $375.00 more than what was quoted based on all of the mishaps. The paint cans were left open and on the floor when the painter left for the evening and there was paint on the comforter and wood floor. ALL of which pictures were furnished to Lea. Finally, she did, in fact, offer to send the painter back after all was said and done. However, if the professional painter cannot paint a bedroom in 4 days, I am not sure why I would want him to come back. It would have taken a full day to fix all of the mishaps. During the initial bid, I asked pointed and direct questions. You guys sand the window trims to assure the paint does not cake on, correct? I was assured and reassured that was the case. In the middle of the job I walked in and noticed nothing was sanded. I text her to ask, and she assured me they would do it, it didn't get done. There were several drips down all of the crown and the mantel. There was paint left all over the windows, and the inside and outside ceils, there are brush marks, and shadows in the room and the closet never got fully covered. Lastly, I want to say, Lea is a nice person. ALL companies have bad days, I am not negating all of the 5-star reviews, and I was not even going to go into detail, but when you reach out and attack a client who has been gracious, caring and accommodating to all of your companies needs and then you post that your client got a job for "free" its not only not the case, but completely a false depiction of the facts. This job cost me over $1k, and the worst issue is I have to get it scraped, sanded and repainted again... costing me even more time money.

Santiago is an AWESOME professional painter. He works at his own pace to ensure the job is done perfectly. He painted my wife’s office/ library cabinet and it is spectacular. The cabinets were a mohogany and we wanted them white and WOW!!what a job. Thanks Santiago! We will definitely use your services again!!!!
