Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost to hire an interior painter ranges between $200-$2,700. 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 should interior painting cost per square foot?

You can expect a 12x12-foot average room with 8-foot ceilings to cost $100 to paint, while a 16x16-foot room with 9-foot ceilings could cost around $175. 

To calculate the cost of interior painting per square foot, measure the square footage of wall space and ceiling space of your room. From this, you can estimate the number of gallons of paint needed to cover the wall space and compare it to these figures. You can also ask interior painters near you to provide an estimate before you hire them.

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 $917 (for one room) to $4,893 (for eight rooms). 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 it cost to get the outside of your house painted?

You can expect to pay around $2,535 to get the outside of your house painted, though this cost will increase with larger house sizes (and decrease with smaller ones). The average hourly rate for exterior painters is $45 and ranges from $25-$75.

Wood, brick, stucco, vinyl, aluminum and stone each have their own set of demands. Contact exterior painters near you to get a detailed cost estimate for your house.

How much do interior painters charge per hour?

You can expect to pay $50 per hour for interior painting. This price will change depending on a number of factors and may range between $30 and $160 per hour. Some factors include the height of the rooms, the complexity of the painting and more.

For an accurate cost estimate, request quotes from local painters and contractors.

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.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

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.

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.

What should I look for when choosing a painter?

When choosing a painter, pay attention to online reviews and ratings. Reviews with pictures are especially valuable, as these showcase the painter’s work. It’s also important to check whether your state requires licenses for painters — if it’s required, your contractor should be able to present their license. 

Finally, compare estimates and quotes from multiple painters near you. Take into consideration what each one guarantees with the job, including factors like higher-quality paint, extensive preparation and a good warranty.

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!

Wow! Very nice young professional men. Yuri came to give me an estimate & he was very reasonably priced. It even included the paint. I hired Westland to paint 3 bedrooms, hallways & stairwell, kitchen & one wall in my living/dining room. I own a semi-attached house. Moldings around the windows & doors & the baseboard heating covers were also painted. This was an extra job but so worth it. No closets or bathrooms were painted since these were recently done. Yuri & Andy did an amazing job in my home. They were so polite. I was comfortable with them in my house. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs painting in their home. A job well done by these guys. Attached are some photos.

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.

Bernard contacted me with an hour of my request for a quote. He came to see the project and gave me a quote the next day. He also was very flexible when I needed to change the date of the project. On the day of the project, he came on time and started working immediately. He and his coworker taped and covered my floors. They were neat and clean. The paint job was excellent. 2 coats of paint on walls, ceiling and trim. I highly recommend Bernard and his team. I’ve already asked for quotes on my next project. Before pics on left after on the right.

Initially, I was going to take on painting myself but I knew it would be a lot of trial and error on my end. I needed a professional to come and paint all the wooden doors/frames in my new home. Dwayne was extremely responsive, punctual, and professional all throughout the process. Even after we went through all the paint cans and I said, “hmm that should be good enough, I’m not too picky about it”, he offered to come back and touch up to make sure I am fully satisfied with the results. He was efficient, knew what he was doing, and even offered his professional insight into viable options, why it shouldn’t be this way or that, etc. (it made choosing material to buy so much easier). And his rate — super fair. I felt he truly cared about his work and customers. Would highly recommend his business/service and am looking forward to hiring again for other miscellaneous projects! Thank you so, so much! And happy holidays to you and your family! :)
