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 Bulls Head painters

This has truly been one of the "BEST" experiences that I have had having my home painted! Cleber was punctual for the initial assessment as well as painting day. He finished the job in record time and left NO mess. Very professional and VERY reasonably priced. I will only use him going forward for all my painting needs and several friends have already asked for his information for their painting jobs. A true professional!

Painting is not just putting paint on a surface. It is a highly skilled trade and when executed well, an art. Sergio and his team are both masters and artists. I contacted him at the last minute and he was responsive, professional and understanding. He did exterior painting of a garage and sanding, staining and refinishing a pair of wooden entry doors. Everything his team did exceeded my expectations and came out beautifully. He is very experienced in all aspects of exterior and interior painting and a really easy person to talk to and deal with. His crew comes early and leaves your place cleaner than when they started. For fantastic painting search no further call now!

Silva was awesome! He knew exactly what he was doing. He showed up on time and brought necessary tools for the job. All I did was supply the paint. He was very neat and respectful of my home. He covered floors and furniture. Even better, he works fast. He didn't even need tape. He cut everything by hand and was meticulous I had an issue with my paint not being well mixed at the store, and Silva recognized that right away. Silva was wonderful and came back to fix all issues with paint even though it was the stores fault! You can tell he takes his work seriously and wants to ensure the end result of his work is too notch! I highly recommend him and will be using him for other paint projects very soon.

Jean was great, from scheduling through completion. He was excellent with communication, respectful, and obliging when I added extra work. He was thorough and finished the painting tasks even faster than I thought he would. Whether it be my next painting project or just a little handy man project, when I need help again in the future I’ll be sure to reach back out to Jean.

Working with Pete was great. Very professional, knowledgable, and was willing to make suggestions when asked. He works diligently and greets you with a smile and a strong handshake. We had extra paint, and I appreciated him doing the most he could with what we already had opened. He saved me money that way and let me know I could return the extra paint. It was a great savings. He did not rush and paid attention to detail and it shows. Hes a very neat painter. He did not make me waste money on supplies we didnt need. He was considerate in that way by making the paint stretch and it looks gorgeous! I've worked with others who had me buy tons of material, opened them and barely or never used it and I could not take it back. I am very satisfied with the job. Hes an honest and fair guy, will do business again very soon!

Mason Elite was the right choice for my painting job, very competitive prices, job done when promised, there attention to detail was excellent. Prep to completion done neatly. All safety measures were taken performing in high work areas. Worked Saturday and Sunday to meet my schedule. These guys like what they do and this reflected on the final product. Highly recommended.

Vlad responded to my request for a quote to paint my living room within hours of my request. He made himself available for a phone conversation and we were able to set a date the same day I submitted my request for bids. Vlad was able to work around my schedule and was punctual. Vlad also was able to trouble shoot and resolve some unexpected issues. Vlad left the site clean and organized. I highly recommend working with Vlad and look forward to working with him on future projects!
