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 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 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 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.

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.

Gerald and his team did a wonderful job painting our home. From the initial contact to the finished product everything was exceptional. Gerald was easy to get in touch with throughout the process and they finished everything ahead of schedule. Would definitely recommend Monster Paint Worx for any of your painting needs!

Was very impressed with Philip!! The price he charged to do our two story foyer was very reasonable. He put such care in the prepping before painting and I am very pleased with how it turned out. So pleased, I asked him back to paint another room. Would definitely recommend this young man and his crew to others. They are meticulous, professional and stayed in contact with me up to paint day.

I hired Cipriano Painting to paint my living room, dining room and hall going up stairs. We had just purchased the house, that had not been painted in about 20 years! They did a great job; arrived as agreed, cleaned up each day and finished as planned. I will use them again! They are all nice guys and Andy even walked my dog! Thanks again Mike, great job!

Trim painting and ceiling repair. Eric did a wonderful job painting our trim and it was done very timely manner. He went above and beyond the required work when he offered to fix a window sill for us. Will definitely be rehiring for more work in the future!

Worst job ever. He had never done a large job and brought a bunch of friends that had never hold a paint brush in their hands. The sprayed paint all over the floor, baseboards, ceiling ad ruined my ceiling, which I will have to get repainted.

I can't rave enough about Castellon's Painting. I recently purchased a new home and had to coordinate painting it with some other minor activities. Gennys and her crew were awesome. The quality of their workmanship was far greater than I expected. When an unexpected issue arose with the existing finish in a room, Castellon's took every measure to assure the issue was addressed, and never asked for a change to their quote. I have some prep work to do on the house we moved from before it can go on the market and there is no question that I will ask Castallon's to paint that home when we are ready. You will be grateful for engaging Castellon's to take care of your painting requirements.

There was a lot more to be desired. Sure the paint got painted on the walls and the entirety of the unit but the fill work was not on point at all. Some consideration and time should have been given a lot of the fill work. It was very rushed and not given much consideration. When the job was finished, the unit was a dusty mess. There was pikes of debris swept aside, paint splotches left on the floors and dust debris and paint splatter all over the bathroom. Most paint crews usually do clean up after themselves, replace electrical covers and re hang the blinds; that basically wasn't done; a mess was left behind. At one point during the week, one of the painters had to leave to go on a cleaning job somewhere 30-40 minutes away. They must have been really short staffed or no-staffed, because being in the service industry personally, one does the work they have in front of them, not leave to tend to other matters. What can I say it was a learning experience. There is a difference between just people who sling paint and people who are contractors and are attentive to the job at hand. It's over and done with.

On top of being an excellent painter, Joel really has an eye for what colors will look good in a room. He helped narrow down my color choices, which was the hardest part of this process for me. While painting, Joel and his team were diligent about protecting my furniture, rug, etc from potential paint splatters, which was much appreciated. The end result is beautiful - flawless walls with perfect edges. I will definitely use this company for all of my painting needs!

Painted entire house, upstairs and downstairs. 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. Eric and Joseph were very easy to work with. Eric came to the house ahead of the project to discuss color scheme (insightful, art background). He was quick to gather supplies, schedule the project and make adjustments as needed. For example, the paint store provided the wrong color for the large combined space of living and kitchen area. I was traveling and returned to see they finished about 75% of the space with the wrong color. Eric went straight to the store, had the issue corrected, returned with the correct paint and got started again. They worked on Saturday to keep the schedule on track. Every morning, someone was there early and as soon as we opened the door, the work was started. They fixed small little spots that my husband and I noticed and offered to come back to address anything in the 2 weeks after the job was finished. Unfortunately, even though we requested Zero VOC paint (because of my allergies and migraines), the base was Zero VOC, but the colorants were not. The fumes were difficult to have in the house as the paint dried. Eric and Joseph tried their best to use fans to direct the fumes outside. I have used actual Zero VOC paints in the past and they can be special-ordered and if I had to do the project again, I would definitely consider hiring Heritage but I would ensure we used Zero VOC paints.

Mike was a nice guy and responsive. However, ended up moving the original start date, painted wrong order of colors, and ultimately did a very sloppy job. Told us he would cover the new floors very well, but there were still paint drops on the floor. Left an attic window open, completely off the hinges. Job felt rushed. We would not recommend him.

I had three rooms painted along with window and door trim. The guys did a very nice job and it was done quickly within the stated time frame. I have no reservations recommending them for a painting job, other than the price. It was quite a bit more expensive than other quotes I received, however their timeline worked better for me and we were in a bit of a hurry. High quality work, though. Thanks!

Not the happiest customer but the job got done. The two men were very respectful and nice young men I can’t deny that. But trying to get the scheduling handled to get the job done was a hassle at times. Trying to get in touch etc. I paid for the job because it was completed but I do think they could improve on paying closer attention to detail. I specifically said “no paint on the floors” the job was to paint the trim. As you see in the pictures, I now have scrape paint off the floors and being that this is a flip house in the middle of being sold, it is frustrating. Again the painters were nice to me but the job was so so. But I do appreciate the painter doing work on some other pieces that we didn’t initially include in the price.
