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.

Reviews for Manchester painters
Jill Z.
Christos was a pleasure to work with; on time, friendly, had a professional team to work with, worked long hours to get the job done. The only slight glitch was when they ran out of paint, which was due to the fact that they painted three, not two coats to get the job done right. But an extra gallon of paint let them finish the job. Thank you Christos and team!

The project was to paint the walls and trim in an apartment in Manchester, NH. She accomodated an earlier start date and finished the project on time and on budget. I was very pleased with her fine work and attention to detail. I will hire her for future painting jobs

Darcio painted my kitchen. His prices where reasonable and very much worth the price. He did a great job and in the time frame he said. He was very clean quiet and respectful. On the day he finished his work I ask him to give me a quote on another painting job which I will hire him for when I'm ready. I would recommend Darcio to other people looking for someone to work in their homes. Thank You again Darcio I love my freshly painted kitchen and I will be in touch for the next job. Laura

We had a painting need come up unexpectedly and needed it turned around quickly. Ting Painting responded quickly, assessed the job and quoted a reasonable price for the work. Jason and his team were responsive and flexible with some changes we made. Jim from Ting worked over a holiday weekend to meet our time frame needs. Quality of finished product is excellent. Crew members were all very friendly and professional, required no follow-up on our part. I could not be more satisfied with the finished product and the professionalism of Ting Painting.

Michelle helped transform my wallpapered kitchen to a more modern, painted kitchen in preparation to put our home on the market. I removed the wallpaper myself (ugh) but Michelle skim-coated and then painted, and it took about three days to complete the job. Michelle paid great attention to detail and always listened to my input about the project. The quality of her work was excellent and I would highly recommend her.

Very good job painting sunroom walls, ceiling and trim. Looks beautiful. Starting and ending earlier in the day would have worked better for my schedule.

Excellent job!! Anthony kept in contact with us from the day we agreed to hire him up to the day the job needed to be done. He's very polite and courteous. We hired him to paint 2 bedrooms and at the last minute we asked him to paint our living room too. He offered to do all 3 rooms for us at a fantastic rate and all 3 rooms came out beautiful. We will definitely hire him again!!

Mike showed up on time and did a great job painting my ceiling. He covered everything with drop cloths and was careful around the edges to ensure the walls weren't splattered. Would recommend.

Chris did touch up painting on the exterior of our house. He did it while we were away on vacation and when we returned he came back later that evening to do a walk around and touchup some additional spots we saw. He was great to work with and did a wonderful job for a fair price. We are getting ready to list our house so we didn't want to have any paint chipping. He told us if we have any trouble selling with an FHA loan due to rotting wood to call him back and he would be happy to give us a quote. He also gave us some tips on how to remove some paint we had previously spilt on our driveway. Overall he was great to work with and we were very happy with him!

We hired Michelle to paint the interior of our house. It was a rather large project and we were undecided on the colors to paint. Michelle was not only an excellent, efficient painter but she also helped us with the colors and more. Michelle finished the job in a timely manner. She was also very neat and never left a mess. Michelle herself was very pleasant and we enjoyed having her here. Also on two occasions Greg helped her with some of the work and once again he was excellent. Needless to say, the house looks beautiful thanks to Michelle. We have no reservations recommending Michelle and we will definitely have her back.

Michelle did a great job. She was very personable, willing to help me work color selection and other choices. She was thorough and my wals and ceilings look great. This is the first time I have ever had someone come in to do my painting and it was definitely worthwhile.

Can’t say enough about this company! I requested a quote to have the whole interior of my house painted on Wednesday. Lou came out the same day and the job was done two days later. Clean, professional work and the price was exactly right! We would hire them again for sure!!

Very happy with my experience working with Allison from start to finish. The whole process was so easy. She responded right away and we were able to schedule a time for her to paint a bedroom ASAP. The bedroom looks amazing! Highly recommend - she’s super easy to work with and does a great job.

From initial contact on Thumbtack to job completion, working with Michelle on painting our bedrooms and hallway was truly a pleasure. Michelle provided updated quotes quickly by email and stayed in contact every step of the way. Michelle was flexible on work times, kept a clean work environment with low footprint for the multi-day project. The quality that really shined is the vision that Michelle had from her initial inspection of the project, she was adeptly and artfully able to convey what the rooms could become with different color choices and had wonderful suggestions on how to save resources and complete the project within our budget. I would and will call Michelle again for future projects. This young Lady sells herself, have her take a look at your painting needs.

If I could leave 6 stars, I would. Michelle is a hardworking, knowledgeable and honest person. I needed help design and paint colors for 3 rooms and the results were awesome! She was a pleasure to work with and I was very comfortable having her in my home. I will definitely call here again for more projects and would highly recommend her.
