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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Should you wash walls before painting?

Yes, in most cases you’ll want to clean your wall before painters start. Washing walls before painting helps get rid of dirt and grime that could affect how the paint adheres, including primer. You can do this using a wall washer, especially if the top of the wall is hard to reach. 

The best way to clean walls is to use a solvent that won’t affect the surface underneath. Some experts recommend using a sponge, warm water and/or a mild detergent or soap. Abrasive washing may remove some of the current pain.

Cleaning painted walls should be done with care. If you’re not comfortable with washing the walls yourself, consider hiring a house cleaner near you.

If you're looking for a painter, Alex at AFP Painting is your guy. He and his team painted the entire interior of my house, and it looks great. I couldn't be happier. They were on time, responsive, professional and affordable. They did such an incredible job, I'm going to have them paint my kitchen cabinets as well. I highly recommend AFP Painting.

What a great experience! We needed painting done on the interior and exterior of our recently purchased home, and Joel came through! He was professional and punctual, reasonably priced, and did truly excellent work. We’re thrilled with the look of our freshly painted home!

Interior painting - walls looked great. Had to call back for a few minor items and cleanup was less than preferred. But Tim was quick to respond and dispatch people for the follow up work. Would use him again.

John did an awesome job painting our interior doors and changing out some hardware on them. He responded very quickly to my request, and was able to complete the entire job and cleanup in one day. He made sure that I was happy with the results, even as it meant changing the painting method. Would definitely hire again.

Did a solid job painting the interior of our house getting it ready to sell. We had the house cleaned before they painted- and it was still neat and tidy after they did their work! I should have paid a little better attention to the exact list we agreed to, but we were able to quickly resolve because communication is excellent with them by text!

Interior painting is always a challenge when you live in the space already. All About Wallz made this a very easy process for me. Lexie, the painter, was detailed, thorough, and delightful. Tim, the owner, was responsive and quick. My job was done in just two days—and done to perfection (and I'm picky!). They have earned my business for life. Don't hesitate to call for a great price and the highest quality work.

Gavin did a good job painting the rooms. He also agreed to replace 4 interior doors and 2 closet doors. On two of the doors, he cut them to short when I brought it to his attention he justified his error by claiming he cut them to the same measurements of the old doors (which were to short) I told him I didn't like that they were to short and the doors needed to be replaced and cut correctly at which time he told me I would need to pay for new doors. This was his error but he wanted me to pay for it. He ended up paying for one and I paid for the other. One of the doors he planed and took too much off and now there is a gap between the door jam and the door. When I brought it to his attention, he said he didn't do it and he didn’t fix it. (See picture below). The doors are painted different colors because he didn't use the paint I provided. I got so frustrated pointing out his mistakes and having to argue to get him to fix it that I finally just said, "never mind, I'll paint it myself" He had to keep coming back to finish work. we would make an appointment (which was never convenient for me, but only when it was good for him) and then night before he would cancel and want to reschedule. (I lost 2 days of work and gave up two weekends then he wouldn't show up.) The work still isn't done, and I have told him not to come back to my house and that I would hire someone else to finish the job. He sent me a message back using all caps " OK" then agreeing to come back at our agreed upon date and time. I refused! There are still doors that need to be hung and cut to fit, doorknobs that need to be put on (paid for them and never got them) and strike plates installed on 3 doors. He always showed up and smelt of cigarettes and marijuana. When it came time to pay, he said he forgot to charge me for the dump fee and added 75.00 and added an additional 20.00 for his time, the next time he showed up, he said he forgot to charge me for the extra door. Additionally, if you use a credit card to pay, he charges you 2.5% of the amount charged. I will never use him again. He is passive aggressive. Doesn't take accountability for his errors Doesn't keep his commitments to come back when he said he would. He got paid and didn't finish the job His invoices have no contact or company name listed for him I didn't get to see any of the receipts for the items he bought After being so frustrated with him, I looked up the his business name on the CCB and there is no active license for Aloha Custom Remodel and Renovation
