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.

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.

Is it worth it to hire a painter to paint my house's exterior?

It is nearly always worth it to hire a painter to paint your home’s exterior. While you may feel comfortable painting a small, one-story home, anything with multiple stories, dormers or other complexities are best left to a pro.

Additionally, it’s best to let the pros handle older homes. Any time extensive prep work is needed — such as repairing chipping, bubbling, cracking or peeling paint, or fixing caulking and substrate issues — a pro can  handle it.

Contact the best painters near you to start getting free estimates and planning your project.

Can I paint my own house exterior?

While you may choose to paint a door, ground-level window trim and other parts of your house’s exterior, it’s really a job best left to the professionals. One of the main reasons is experience. An experienced painter knows how to handle the prep work, spot problems and identify sources of future trouble, all while getting the job done more efficiently. They are also experienced with spending long hours on tall ladders. If you want high-quality work, it’s best to hire a professional painter near you

Should I pressure wash my house before painting?

Pressure washing your siding before painting is an efficient way to clean your house in preparation for receiving new paint. However, it must be done correctly to avoid causing water damage or damaging the siding itself. 

Depending on the PSI rating of your washer, you should stand far away enough from your house to avoid removing paint or etching into the siding itself. Also avoid injecting water behind the siding, which typically occurs when spraying upwards at a low angle. 

When in doubt, consider hiring a pressure washer near you before your painter paints your home’s exterior. Or, contact the best painters near you to see if they offer pressure washing services as well.

Micron did outstanding work on our exterior painting project for a reasonable price. They also kept me updated as a change in the weather caused their work schedule to change. Very professional.

Jose was great to work with, completed the exterior painting and limewashing job with expertise and efficiency. Only room for improvement is perhaps being a little more careful covering up landscaping around work area as not to get paint on plants etc. will definitely be calling him for future jobs

I requested Luis to pressure wash the house, paint the window shutters and front door. Luis did an excellent job. Luis even went the extra mile by doing touch up painting that was needed on the exterior door frame for the transoms that made the whole project even more outstanding once completed! I will recommend Luis to people I know that need painting done on their home.

Albert and team did an Amazing job on painting the exterior of my home. They were professional, timely and friendly. I received several quotes and were told of the types of paint they would used. I did my homework and check each on out. A Touch of A Brush offered the best quality paint. They promised and they delivered. I would highly recommend this team for your work and I look forward to working with them again on interior work.

Franklin and his workers were great. We used them to paint the exterior of our house. They were the most professional and respectful contractors with which I worked. They showed up on time, cleaned up trash everyday, respected our space and did a great job on painting. They were also a great price. I highly recommend them and would use them again!

We hired Gustavo to paint the chimney stack of our home, due to being unable to reach the high areas. He was very quick in scheduling a time to come and give us an estimate, as well as complete the project. Although rain delayed our project a couple times, Gustavo always made a point to touch base with us and set another time that worked with our schedule. He was prompt, professional and cleaned up the work area after completion. The paint job looks phenomenal and he took his time to ensure it was nothing less than that. Extremely grateful for Gustavo's painting services and we highly recommend him to others! He does interior/exterior painting as well as carpentry work. You won't be disappointed!

Dereck just finished painting the exterior of our house and my wife and I couldn't be more pleased with the job he did! We feel like we just moved into a brand new home! Dereck was so easy to work with throughout the entire process. He was able to provide a quote for us right away and his price was extremely reasonable. He was very responsive and offered helpful advice in selecting the paint color. He was really thorough and double checked all of his work to ensure he didn't miss anything. You could tell he really takes pride in the work he does. We will eventually be painting the interior of our house and I won't even entertain the idea of hiring someone other than Dereck!

Both John & Rose are very friendly and were instrumental in facilitating the completion of my exterior painting/pressure washing project. Rose even took the time to help me solve a Thumbtack specific issue, which she didn’t have to do. Pricing was super reasonable which allowed me to get a few more things done. I’m very pleased with the quality of John’s work and will definitely have more for him to do!

I hired DCrew Painting to paint the exterior of our single story home. I contacted several other painters on Thumbtack. I figured now is starting to be the busy season for outdoor painting, and I wouldn’t hear back right away, but Jonathan at DCrew contacted me immediately. Very professional. He arrived at our estimate appointment time promptly, and after looking at the house and measuring everything up, gave me the figure on the spot. No waiting! After the pressure washing was done, the painters came the next day, got straight to work, and stayed the entire day, to complete the project. They were very professional, and all 3 worked well together. We were thrilled with the color and the results. Several neighbors took notice of the great job and asked for their name. We could not have asked for better results!
