Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

What should I expect from a painting contractor?

You should expect an estimate based on an actual examination of the house, as well as a plan for exactly what the painter will do. During the job, the painters should behave professionally while working as efficiently as possible to complete the job in a reasonable timeframe. Afterward, the only evidence of the paint job should be the paint itself — a professional contractor will clean up thoroughly once a job is done.

Reviews for North Ridgeville painters

We had them come out to paint a room for us. The paint we got for some reason did not cover well which was no fault of them. He called another paint store and offered to go get a better paint and would come back in a few days to finish. We were prepared to buy paint and additional cost to fix. Not only have we never heard back from them to finish the job, but calls and texts to them have had no response from the fact that it appears that they have went one step further and blocked my number. I have waited a week or so in case something happened to them, but nothing. I have never had this issue and been even blocked. Simply disappointing

Mike is professional, personable, reliable, very customer service oriented, and does beautiful work! I have referred him to everyone I know that is looking for a painter - he was a reasonable estimate, finished the job early, and was very neat - not a drop of paint anywhere! I would use him again for my next painting project!

We recently had our kitchen cabinets painted by D3 Services and had a great experience! The guys were very professional and responsive throughout the entire process -- from getting an estimate and following through on the job. The entire project took 5 days (as planned) and we couldn't be happier with the results! They handled everything from purchasing the paint and products, to masking, removing the doors and hardware/hinges, spraying all paint (no brushing or rolling which was a huge plus for us!), and the reinstallation and clean-up. They were incredibly thorough, very polite, quiet, hard workers, on time and easy to deal with. We'd definitely recommend them to friends and family and consider them for future projects. The coolest part was that the same night they finished the job, they sent us a before/after video of the entire process to share! Keep up the good work guys!

I must have the same crew that the other negative reviewers had. Nice guy, but no sense of urgency to fix the numerous issues. I have expertienced similar issues as others to include numerous missed areas on exterior trim and shutters, no straight edges, paint on Windows and siding, sloppy taping and tape left behind on garage door opener, needs second coat as I can see through the first coat to wood underneath. Left me The extra paint which is great, however I need the paint on the areas I paid for not in the cans. Still waiting for him to return for 3rd trip to compete the job. Would not recommend at this time. I should have done my homework and looked at the reviews and the BBB website. I usually do before hiring contractors. Have pictures of the poor job and have provided them to the company. Go figure I get burned when I don't!

Estimated less than a week. Took over three weeks. Painter was ALWAYS late each day. Would say 7a and wouldn’t arrive until 11a One of the reviews said “yeah they threw paint on the wall, but not much else” is exactly true. One of the painters with the dreads, he was legit. The big one was lazy, constantly on his phone, and had to invite a friend and his brother just to help him “finish”. When I say finish, there was paint on my carper, tile, cabinets, and outlet covers. You could see that only the top half of the floor trim was painted. You get what you paid for. I had a Sherwin William contractor come and redo the entire house and WHAT. A. DIFFERENCE. House looked brand new. Wouldn’t let these people touch any of my rentals with a ten foot pole. Stay away. I will upload photos in a bit.

Fantastic service and very professional. We hired Reimagined to paint our entire first floor and upstairs hallway. They were always right on time and quickly fixed anything we pointed out. They helped us select colors that worked perfectly with what we had envisioned. We are thrilled with the service and will absolutely recommend them to our friends and family.
