The owner of the company, Tony Taracena, was very punctual when he met me to look at the work I wanted done and give me an estimate. He gave me a competitive price, but the focus - before, during, and after - was on my being happy with his work. For the duration of the project - painting 3 interior rooms, 2 hallways, and 1 bathroom (along with sanding/priming/painting woodwork) - he was communicative and responsive to my questions and concerns. And when I asked, he was also helpful about giving paint color advice, since I was vacillating between choices, but also considerate and judicious to keep this advice in line with my taste and parameters. The project lasted 3 days, and Tony had three painters with him. The team always arrived together, and they were always punctual. They were respectful of me and my home/space, and I didn't hesitate to run errands while they were here. From our initial meeting, I trusted Tony, and that extended to his team that he, in turn, supports and trusts. I liked all the young men who worked with him, although quiet and absolutely focused on their work. Oh - I did try to prepare for their arrival by getting paintings and pictures off the walls and moving furniture, etc., but they were happy to move the things that were too heavy for me or that I did not get to, and this was a real boon. I had gotten estimates from other companies, and not every company was willing to move things. Naturally, there's some inherent or potential liability to moving someone's stuff, for example, scratches on floors or on furniture, but we discussed concerns (large TV removal from the wall that we decided my husband would do, and we noted scratches that were already on the floor) and it all worked out very well. In the middle of the job when I requested some more work be added on, Tony accommodated and gave me more than a fair price on it. I felt that we worked in good homeowner/professional partnership, and that had/has a lot of value to me. My husband and I are both pleased with the quality of the work he did; it's beautiful, and I can't wait to get the rest of my house finished by his company in a few months. I've had other work done to my home previously and have not had it be such an efficient and seamless experience, and with Tony in the lead, it was also respectfully personable and unfailingly professional; he really values his relationship with his customers. I absolutely recommend Taracena's Painting.

Nilso is definitely one of the best, most reasonable, and most professional painters I've ever had the pleasure of hiring. I am a landlord and trust me when I tell you that there are plenty of risks when hiring a contractor you've never worked with before. Nilso is the type of contractor you don't need to worry about. You can trust him to take pride in every little detail of the work he does and once you agree on a price he will stick to it 100%. I would not hesitate to hire Nilso again on my next painting project. Thank you for doing a great job.

If I could post 6 stars, I would. Both Darcio Correa's services AND pricing were outstanding. These days, I recognize how unique that is. I was on a strict budget but wanted to paint my townhouse condo and spruce it up for renters. Darcio took the time to communicate back and forth with me to figure out the most economical approach to the job. He was extremely prompt, started the job exactly when we'd discussed and worked diligently to finish within 4 days. He was meticulous, tidy and very professional. I am so pleased with his work. The painting is lovely! I wish him all the best as he continues to help others spruce up their residences.

Reubert did an incredible job painting the high ceiling stairwell and entire first floor of my home. His quote was more than competitive and he worked extremely long hours to get the job done on our (VERY) short timeline. The quality of his work is absolutely outstanding. He really took the time to do his job well AND correct the mistakes of previous painters and contractors. I truly feel that he went above and beyond my expectations. I'll be going to him first and solely for all my future painting needs.

Lou has always been on time and the quality of his work has been great. Project has been hampered by rainy weather, not something Lou can control (if he could control the weather I'd give him at least 7 stars).

We had Felipe do painting of our entire 5-bedroom house as well as a multitude of repairs. He and his team do great, professional work at a very reasonable price. Felipe is kind, clean, calm, and a good listener. He was able to work seamlessly alongside a second renovation group that we had in the house at the same time without any issues or conflict. As well, he and his team worked around my 1-year-old and his nanny - one of his painters would even make cute faces and make him laugh as he was eating his lunch! Ultimately, Felipe is a great contractor and a super nice guy to boot. We’d hire him again in a heartbeat not only because of the quality work he does, but because he’s such a good guy.

Troy did a fantastic job painting our whole house: trim, ceilings and all walls. We also had a few rooms that needed plaster work and now they look flawless. We could not recommend Troy more. He gave us quotes right away and really worked with us on painting our house around our schedule. Troy was fast, reliable and the quality of his work is unsurpassable. He even recommended some great colors to put on our walls. Everyone who comes over compliments the paint. The house feels fresh and new. Troy goes above and beyond his job. He helped us find a local plumber because we had just moved to town. If you need a painter or a contractor I highly recommend Troy you will be not disappointed. We will definitely be calling him again in the future.

Received a number of quotes to paint the walls in our Summer home and Anthony came in very reasonable in comparison to others. His knowledge of supplies needed was great ( even offering his Pro discount when we were purchasing our Paint ) Arrived on time; however, was a little taken a back after a few minutes realizing his girlfriend did not have much painting knowledge. I would have rather paid a bit more to have cleaner lines and not have to scrub paint off our floors throughout ! Very large wall area above the stove in the kitchen was completely missed and is bright yellow. I have not found the time to get this re painted ! Anthony is a clean, honest, knowledgeable painter. I would recommend him ! Great guy !

Todd at Clark Custom Painting has been very professional and communicative of needs and expectations. His work is clean, professional and offers great experience in the paints needed for different applications. Lastly, he worked with us under difficult general contractor circumstances outside of our control and would gladly recommend him.

We searched for MONTHS for a contractor and met with so many people who were flaky, unprofessional, overpriced or disappeared. Ryan was the opposite of all of those things, and I'm so glad we found him (or rather, he found us on Thumbtack!). He built out our open loft into a bedroom and a second room/office. He also acted as general contractor and coordinated/oversaw the electrician and painters. Our project is almost finished and we have been so pleased. Ryan has always been courteous, reliable, timely, and respectful of us and our neighbors. I would not hesitate to hire him again or recommend him to anyone.

Carlos and his helper saved me...I was overseeing the painting for my daughter while she was out of town. The original painter cancelled, and Carlos and his helper stepped up and came after hours to get the job done before wood floors were being done the next day! Price was more than original painter, but well worth it for a late night of getting the job done! They even helped me move some stuff!!

We recently hired Northeast Construction to paint a room for us. Their painter was so quick and the job looks amazing! The initial contact with the owner was very professional. He came out personally and went over the job and had a painter here the next day. We were so impressed that we are having them paint a few more rooms and possibly some custom cabinets. A+!

Alex, the owner, is EXTREMELY good, professional. His response time was 30 minutes on an estimate and started and completed a project 24 hours later. I was immensely happy and he went out of his way to even do some additional spot work at no cost. His labor costs where fair and he also picked up the materials. I would recommend him for any job large, medium, or small. He IS the best painter I've ever worked with (and I used to be a painter back in college myself.)

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
