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.

Awesome working with Jody who sent Ben over to paint. I had some very tall vaulted ceilings that I needed help painting and lots of delicate trim work. Ben was detailed and intentional to do a good job. He was also quick and got a lot done in the six hours I had him help me. I would highly recommend them if you need help painting!

I only had one bedroom painted but Jose bid the job fairly and was prompt. He did a very good job and I look forward to using him again since I own rental properties that often need painting between tenants.

I would never hire this painter again! bad, bad, bad We hired Ruiz to paint the interior of our home, walls, ceiling and woodwork. All of the paint on the wood surfaces, doors, moldings, fireplace mantel is peeling off. We had purchased a quality paint from Miller Paint for him to use. When we called Ruiz to come back to look at this problem he kept blaming the paint, said it was not good quality. He said it needed to be primed. SO, WHY DIDN"T HE PRIME? He never mentioned this before he started. When we asked why he didn't he acts like he doesn't understand what your saying. He will not come back and take care of this problem. Stay away from this contractor unless you want to throw your money out the window!

I had a great experience booking Diaz Professional Painting to paint the exterior of my house. They were friendly and professional throughout all of my communications with them. When they showed up, they carefully explained the process and were flexible when I changed my mind on colors. They exceeded my expectations and my neighbors have complimented our house and the work they have done.

We would give Damas Painting 6 or 7 stars if we could. Fernando and his crew were extraordinarily attentive to every detail of our project. All work and associated costs were explained in great detail before the painting began. The Damas crew was great about notification, follow-up, and even helped with our color selection. The job was completed as promised, on time and on budget. And, best of all -- our house looks better than it has in 15 years.

If you need a painter look no further. Jose was prompt and did great work for a reasonable price. I had a 2 bedroom condo unit painted and he got it done super quick. Thanks Jose!

Jose is amazing to work with. I always do my research when it comes to bids and quality. We had our entire home repainted inside and this was no small task. Jose exceeded our expectations and was wonderful to work with. Will be hiring him for all future painting projects.

Nelson was the first contractor to contact me. He called only 10 minutes after posting my request. He was only a few minutes away and came right out. He walked the job and explained in detail how he would handle our paint job. He also offered us color consulting at no extra charge by the paint supplier. It was very helpful. His estimate came in the very next day, very close to what I had figured it would be on my own. Nelson and his crew were efficient. They did a great job and cleaned up well when they were done. We very much recommend Novo Remodeling.

The Paint4Less Painters did a very high quality job for a great price. They came on time, painted the living room, dining room, entry hall in a day including removing wall paper! They really paid attention to detail. Tony communicated well throughout and they left the house tidy! I would highly recommend Paint4Less!
