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.

Esteban did an excellent job with our house. The minute he came in for an initial assessment, he walked us through the whole house providing details on what needs to be fixed and how he plans to go about it before he starts the painting assignment. Once, he fixed everything he did a flawless painting job. We had painted multiple dark color samples on our walls which he had to prime and double coat over as an additional add on. He was very accommodating and worked with us to ensure we could get other projects done at the house and he diligently did touchups to the wall paint once those were over. He also painted our stair railings which had to be done twice since the paint got a little stained after the hard wood floors were stained. The best thing about Esteban was that when we did the walk through I told him about all the touchups and he took care of every one of them. I could not find a single wall in the house that was not perfectly painted once Esteban was done with his project. I would definitely recommend him not only for his painting expertise but the sheer diligence with which he does his work.

Very disappointed. We scheduled a time and day for him to come and help us with painting, and re-confirmed the date a couple days beforehand. He never showed up, never called, and never offered an apology or explanation. If we'd known he wasn't going to come, we could have booked someone else. We're on a tight deadline to get the painting done, which we now can't meet because of this.

Al was great to work with. He showed up on time, and did he job for me at very competitive prices. He also came back to make updates to the paint job once I told him that there were things that I needed redone/retouched, because they became obvious only after I saw it under sunlight. He had no hesitations coming back, and I was impressed by his commitment towards his clients. Will work with him again in future.

Hilde and Rudy did a fantastic job on painting our 3bedroom apartment rental. They arrived on time every morning and did the job very quickly. Our renters left our brand new construction rental property as mess after they moved out on us. Hilde and Rudy gave us a great, competitive price and did a very professional job. Hide even offered for us to hire her cleaning crew which made the apartment look new again. l definitely use their services again.

David was super responsive. He was able to come give me an accurate quote in person hours after we first made contact through Thumbtack. I booked him for the very next morning! He completed the job (painting an entire 1 bedroom apartment) in 1.5 days! The work quality is excellent, fast and he left the place clean. He was the best price and value for the the job compared to at least 4-5 other competitors. He is not only a painter, his company is a full service general contractor with electrical and plumbing license. I’m so glad I found DVMG. I will definitely be using him for all future property repairs. Definitely 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you David!
