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.

Painted cabinets, sanded/caulked/painted. Did a great job, came back to apply an additional coat at no charge (just the cost of the paint)

I had a fantastic experience using Painting Plus 66. The painters were professional and friendly. They did an excellent job painting my bathroom in a bright fuchsia shade and they took their time to make sure it looked perfect. They were prompt and tidy. I highly recommend using Painting Plus 66 for any painting needs you have.

The painting job that we needed to be completed was in a huge time crunch. They were able to quote the project and get started immediately. It was finished on time and the paint job was perfect.

Top Tier Painting worked wonders on my new house! I had originally hired them only to paint the kitchen cabinets, and ended up that having them paint the whole house including the railings, banisters, mantle and all the walls! My house was very dated (as you can see from the before pics) and had a horrible paint job, but you would never be able to tell with how great Top Tier Painting made everything look. Michael's employee Rob was awesome both professionally and personally. He was respectful of my house and did his best; not because it was his job, but because he takes pride in his work. I will definitely be calling Michael and his crew in spring for them to paint the deck and fence! I 100%, absolutely recommend Top Tier to anyone needing anything painted!

I was very pleased with the work and the professionalism of Painting Plus 66 painters. They did a very good job painting and cleaning up after completion. I am very satisfied with my experience, and would recommend this company for any of your painting needs. They will be doing more work for me in the future.

His professionalism was great. The job is terrible! I felt like my wood should’ve been filled with wood filler, sanded down, primer and then painted. It just looks like they air brushed white paint over top of the gray paint that was originally there. It’s not smooth, paint already looks chipped and worn down. He told me that my wood was old hence why it looked like this. I wasn’t a satisfied customer!

We had a great experience with Mullins Fine Line. We had the entire upstairs of our house painted. They were easy to work with, reasonably priced and did a great job with the painting. This was a big job as we had not only the ceiling and walls but also doors and trim. I would be comfortable recommending them to anyone looking for quality interior painting.

Tim was very nice, however I get home to see that my ceiling has paint on it, my other wall which is also a different color also has a different color on it and my trim is blotchy and needs painted. I also noticed that the top of my ceiling is is not all the way painted and is very uneven. I am not happy with the work.

What a job! I had a lot of projects that required so many different skills and Top Tier exceeded our expectations in every sense. We needed wall repairs, walls spackled and painted, trim and baseboards sanded and painted, fireplaces and windowsills stripped and stained... they did it all and did it beautifully! All the guys were professional and courteous, knowledgable and skilled. I will hire Top Tier in future when I have another painting project!
