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.

I hired Castellon Painting to paint 2 areas in my home, and I am so pleased with the result/quality and professionalism of Gennys and her foreman. I highly recommend Castellon Painting.

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!

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.

Joe was very mindful of the reasoning for my interior painting. Not only did he and his crew provide an excellent service, he went beyond that and suggested things that I had overlooked or never even considered. I highly recommend New Outlook for ANY painting job that you need.

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.
