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.

I had requested a Painter on the same day after another company left me hanging last Saturday Morning (6/13) - and couple of hours later Raul and his crew were there! Took estimates and came back couple of hours later to start working! His service is very reasonably priced and is willing to work with you! He was awesome and very accommodating - to me the most important thing is customer service/satisfaction which Raul definitely had and he was especially HONEST and will keep you informed - another bonus. We wanted to paint couple of rooms and the Living Rooms and part of the Kitchen, they went above and beyond our expectations. They were clean, professional, and were easy to work with - he even stayed until 2 AM one night (after my approval of course!) just to make sure he gets the job done in the best way - very thorough indeed! He will make sure you are happy and everything is done to your satisfaction. I will definitely hire him again and refer him to family and friends! Thank you Raul!

I hired Tracy Morgan Designs to paint the exterior of our home. Tracy helped me with colors and I couldn't be happier. I love the house. Leo and his team of painters were excellent. Professional service and reasonable price. I've already recommended them to our friends. Thank you for taking good care of our project

The painters were very professional and could tackle a rather difficult hallway that was narrow and high. They were on time, did an awesome painting job AND they were very flexible and included the scarping of popcorn ceiling after the initial quote was submitted. They cleaned every evening before they left so the project didn't affect our daily lives. Would highly recommend them!

Wayne painted the interior of our house. We had a horrible textured accent walls that other painters said they were not capable of fixing. Wayne and his crew fixed the wall no problem and did so on incredibly short notice. He was so friendly, accommodating, and clearly knew his craft. We would recommend Wayne in a heartbeat and plan to use him for additional jobs!

I recently had a painter not show up last minute before I moved furniture into my new house. I contacted Ron through this site and he came out the same to do an estimate the same day. He was able to finish the job before my furniture was moved in and also take care of some other jobs around the house. Ron is easy to talk to and does very good work at a reasonable price. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

We had to replace all the siding on our chimney last year because it had begun to rot and fall off. I had been looking for a painter to paint our chimney for months, but it seemed no one could be bothered to do the job. Mike came out to my house and offered me a quote that beat all the contractors who had previously bid on the job. He came back the very next day and had the job finished within 4 hours. Now the chimney looks great, and my wife and I couldn't be happier. Best of all, Mike was prompt, courteous, and a true professional throughout the entire process. He's done a high-quality job on our home, and he will be the first person I call for any future painting projects I have.

Very happy with the job Mondale and one of his crew members, Norman, did! I had a very short weekend to get a rental property ready for new tenants to move in and after my original painters fell through, I found Mondale and he came out the very next morning to paint literally half of our rental house (trim included)! They were extremely nice, respectful, and did a great job for a great price! They even helped out with stuff that they didn’t need to. We will definitely be calling them again.

I am so very pleased that I found a professional painter such as Courtney and his team to initialize and carry out my painting project. He gently guided me throughout my decision making as to color and sheen. The finished project couldn't have looked any better. He got the job done swiftly and in a very professional manner. Based on my experience, I think you will be very pleased with Courtney's group carrying out your project. I will definitely use The CS Painting Group again!

Overall good job. Painted all closets, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, living room, dining room, kitchen, foyer. Did a lot of sanding and wallpaper take down and wall repai that wasn't expected, but paid more than quote. Came back several times to fix items. Concerns: insist on painters tape to be used first time, area should be cleaned before leaving for day( sand dust everywhere) ceiling in kitchen still needs more sanding, but tired of painting. Get clear all these details before job is started.

Josh was a great professional and did a fantastic job. He came in for a project and gave me a very fair estimate on the project but also went above and beyond. He assessed the whole house and provided recommendations for other areas that needed attention and was honest on areas that I could delay if necessary. He also found some water damage none of the other painters noticed and midway through the project we ended up with a bathroom leak. He worked to get someone over that day to give me an estimate and stop the leak. He then gave me a very reasonable estimate to fix where the leak damaged part of the ceiling I was not going to paint previously. He also did all my repair work in my walls and seams for a great price and really went above and beyond to give a perfect touch to my ceilings. As a landlord living out of state, going with someone I trust is critical. Josh earned my trust and helped me to see the details and gave me a cost effective way to fix the problems. He understood my budget and really worked with me. He also knew how to address the areas where a few extra dollars could buy me a few more years of the paint. He also had great suggestions for colors and worked with me on how to make the project the best. He is a perfectionist, which is a great trait in a painter, but also has a laid back easy attitude to work with and was always professional. The whole house was painted in a short period of time and I will definitely use his service in the future!

NC Quality painters Professionals is an excellent company! Their painters are all knowledgeable, courteous, on-time, and open to answering any and all questions you may have. Their goal of customer satisfaction resulted in our project being completed by a team of experienced, highly professional painters and the results were amazing! The entire porch looks fresh and new again! Loose and peeling paint on the porch railings and posts was scraped, sanded, primered, and then painted. The cracks in the porch ceiling in front of the door were repaired with fiberglass tape and then sanded. The team went the extra mile and painted the entire ceiling to ensure continuity of color. We are extremely pleased with the results and will definitely use again! Highly recommend this company!

Kimberley and Patrick arrived early and was ready to go to work! They are very professional, knowledgeable, and very easy to talk to and work with. They kept me informed about the progress of the job throughout the entire process and WOW.....did they do an out of this world job! I couldn't have asked for any better results and still can't believe my eyes when I walk into the 3 bedrooms that they painted for us!!! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional painter at a very reasonable price and I am more than confident that you won't be disappointed cause these guys are the best!

Everything about this experience was excellent. Zach conducted the business end of the deal professionally and conscientiously. The painters were great! Jeff was the chief painter. He and his crew did a great job painting and completed the job on time. I would not hesitate to recommend or hire this team again. Bravo!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost for an interior painter ranges between $450 and $900. 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 paint the interior of a house?

Interior house painting costs are calculated on a few key factors. Nationally, interior house painting projects range from $200 to $2,500. 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 does a painter charge per room?

The cost to paint a room will vary based on the size of the room, the type of paint you select, any ceiling or trim work needed, and any repairs needed. If no repairs or other additional work is needed, painting a room with contractor-grade paint could range from $1 to $2 per square foot, including materials. Selecting a luxury paint (some cost more than $100 per gallon) will certainly increase your house painting costs. Here are some additional examples of average house painting costs, per room:

  • 12x12 room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 12x12 room with an 8-foot ceiling: about $100
  • 14x16 master bedroom with a 9-foot ceiling: about $150
  • 14x16 master bedroom with an 8-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 16x16 living room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $175
  • 16x16 living room with a 20-foot ceiling: starting at $225
