Antonio and his crew are hard workers and did an excellent job painting 5 rooms in our two-family house. Antonio is knowledgeable and saved us some money in recommending that he replaster and paint rather than replace 5 ceilings that needed repair, most likely because they had been painted with calcimine. He and his crew are pleasant and professional, and I recommend them highly.

I hired GHI to paint my upstair rooms. We met prior to the project and went over everything. His questions and suggestions were great. The work is now at completion and I could not be happier. He and his crew were most respectful to my space. They cleaned up every night before leaving. His work was beautiful. My living space upstairs is now clean and fresh. I highly recommend GHI. They are outstanding!

First impression is that you should meet Darcio Correa in person. He is a gentleman craftsman who is attentive to every need the homeowner desires and, as we learned, he takes an enormous amount of pride in delivering superior service. He plastered a kitchen wall for us where tile had been removed. The wall was not in good shape. When we returned home, the wall was 'paint ready' and no signs of what had been when we left that morning. He is an 'artist'. Darcio arrives on time, quotes a fair price, and is well experienced in a number of home handyman trades. Above & Beyond service.

Bob scraped and painted the deck in a few days and the deck looks great. He took the time to work with us and kept in communication. He cleaned up all the paint chips leaving the work site clean each day. He even made sure he had proper primer to work with for the job. We are very happy with the outcome.

I hired Reubert to paint the walls and trim of multiple rooms and a hallway. He came on time, did a great job, and did it for a great price. I was in the house working remotely part of the time, and you couldn't want a better person working in your home in that situation. Reubert is intelligent, pleasant, quiet, clean, and respectful. He goes above and beyond. I highly recommend him.

Gerry is awesome awesome awesome- professional, friendly, punctual, trustworthy, personable, reasonable, hard working, attentive to the client, and plain good person. He helped me paint my new place ( 3000 sq feet)...came out to see the property, gave a reasonable quote in a timely manner, met with me prior to the start of project, accommodated the paint brand and kinds I preferred, always with a smile, and met his deadline early. He left the place spotless and walked the property with me at the end to make sure I was content. Let’s put it this way- I’m not the kind of person who writes reviews, but I felt that his hard and quality work deserves recognition... sincerely, the whole process was so seamless that it puts a smile on my face. I’d hire him again in a heartbeat.

I hired Casey to update my kitchen and haul out the old kitchen. He installed new countertops, faucet, sink, backsplash, light fixtures, paint, crown molding and appliances. He kept his work space tidy and kept to himself. I was able to go about my days as normal, which I very much appreciated. When the job was finished I ended up with a trustworthy handy man for any future jobs and a BEAUTIFUL updated kitchen. He was also incredibly reasonable with his pricing. Hire him... you won’t regret it!!

We have now used Troy for several projects which include restoration, tiling of floors, painting inside walls, and painting exterior of house. In each case we were well pleased with his work and impressed both with his handling of the projects and their end results. For the first project (painting the interior walls), Troy took the extra effort to prep the walls by removing excess wall paper and backing, patched and skim coated. After painting the walls they looked beautiful - smooth, clean lines, damage spots no longer visible. The exterior paint job was also done well. Again, Troy took the time to prepare the surfaces - scraping shingles and trim work, fixing / repairing shingles, finding the right primer (due to the poor condition of the shingles and old peeling paint). And again, with a coat of paint and clean lines around the trim the house looks vibrant - the neighbors loved it and commented on the good job he did. Troy also tiled the bathroom and kitchen floors which look great. The projects were performed in a timely manner, the areas kept clean as Troy didn't just do a job but took ownership and managed the projects. Once Troy took the project I could relax knowing that any issues that arose would be handled, I would be kept informed with updates and timeframes, and in the end impressed.

I first hired Todd a little more than three years ago when I bought my first house. It was a stressful time because I was a new home owner and purchased a very old house. I hired Todd to remove the wallpaper in almost every room in my house, patch 100+ year old horse hair plaster, and prime every wall and paint every ceiling. Todd was on-time, on-budget, and regularly gave me updates. I hired him again to paint our back porch. In that instance, we also needed a good carpenter and Todd was able to recommend an excellent person. Then last year Todd returned to paint the new cabinets in my kitchen. More than a year later and with a lot of wear and tear, those kitchen cabinets look beautiful. Bottom line: I trust Todd. He has excellent judgement, accurate estimates, and I trust him in my house when I am not there.

Chad fixed a 35 year-old, cranky, crank-out, casement window in my home today. This was a very tricky project, and Chad went above and beyond: looking for solutions online, contacting the manufacturer, etc. Someone else might have given up, but he stuck with it. He doesn’t like not being able to figure out a problem. He is very courteous, wears booties in the house, cleans up everything when he’s finished (and believe me, not everyone does this). He fixed my window, and I would not hesitate to hire him again to do work in my home. Very fair pricing as well. Great service!

Carlos and the team at Carbea Patining are great! They were very professional, easy to communicate with, reliable, and did a great job painting our 20ft high living room. We had outdated paint and they made them look like new. Pricing was spot on and I would highly recommend. I hope to use them again soon for other projects.

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+!

I hired Alpha Painting to paint my daughter’s condo. Katarina was great scheduling as my daughter needed it painted quickly before she moved in. Christos and Marcos worked tirelessly and were able to paint all 5 rooms in a day! They did an amazing job and my daughter was thrilled. They are true professionals and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend them and will definitely be using them again in the near future!

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
