Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

What should I expect from a painting contractor?

You should expect an estimate based on an actual examination of the house, as well as a plan for exactly what the painter will do. During the job, the painters should behave professionally while working as efficiently as possible to complete the job in a reasonable timeframe. Afterward, the only evidence of the paint job should be the paint itself — a professional contractor will clean up thoroughly once a job is done.

Fernando and his crew did an awesome job painting my 2+ story home. What I really appreciated was Fernando's knowledge of paint and caulking, absolute professionalism and making sure I was happy with all aspects of the job. His pricing wasn't the lowest, but that's because his bid included a better paint than the competitors. Make sure you're comparing apples to apples with painters. Once this was taken into consideration, his was the best bid. He also gave me bids for different paints to better fit my budget. In the end I went with his recommendation and very glad I did. Looks awesome.

We contracted with Damas Painting and Construction to paint the exterior of our home. Fernando was great to work with, best communication I've ever had with a contractor. They consulted with us on color, planning and trim style. We were flexible on scheduling but Fernando and his team were on time and everything went according to plans. Our house looks great!

Vik is very responsive, which I really appreciated considering I had several questions every day for weeks leading up to painting. He and his team worked quickly, painting our entire 3,000 sq-foot house in 4 days, and they even vacuumed our carpets and moved furniture back to their place after they finished. We have hired them to come back next month to do our cabinets!

RCG Painting was hired to paint our interior office space in Tualatin OR, this included 3 offices and a main lobby. we required this space to be finished in a shorter than normal time frame and we were very pleased when Ricardo was able to accommodate that need. Ricardo was very responsive, really nice and easy to work with, great communication. Their prices are really good and their quality outstanding. I will definitely use them again in the future.

Efren gave me an estimate the same day I contacted him and set a date to start painting the cabinets. It involved a large kitchen and pantry, laundry room, office built-ins, two bathroom vanities, and two small doors in the bonus room. He showed up on time with 4 or 5 workers and they did an excellent job of masking off everything and protecting our newly installed floors and furniture. Efren and his team worked through the weekend to ensure we could get our house back as soon as possible. All of his crew were very friendly, and always greeted us with a smile. Efren even did a final walk through to make sure everything was up to standards and was willing to touch up anything that needed it. We were very happy with 504 painting, and all of our friends and family love the new painted cabinets. Highly recommend! Very good guy.

Efren and his team did a great job on interior painting and fixing ceiling in the kitchen area, I usually try to go by referrals from friends and family, but had a hard time to find someone who can get done everything I need in my time frame and one team! Well not only they finished everything on time ( literally in 3 days ) but also did such a beautiful job I cannot be thankful enough!

Ricardo Garica owner of RCG and his crew were very professional. I had the exterior of my home painted. RCG was always on time and always cleaned up when they left for the day. The price was very reasonable and they power washed my home, caulked where needed and replaced any dry rot around my windows . I have already recommended them to at least three others who will be using them in the future. I was extremely pleased they were OUTSTANDING!

We had 4 rooms painted, Tim and his crew did an excellent job! Bid was fair, and was able to start quickly. We had a week to complete work before we moved in, job was completed on time as promised. He and his crew even removed screws and mails, filled the holes, and retextured the wall to match perfectly. Interactions with him and his crew were all professional and courteous, all communication and details of the work were very clear. We will definitely hire again without any hesitation.

Vlad's response to my Thumbtack request for potential painters was impressive. I received an email within one hour of my request. We met later that week. After looking at the house, he provided an estimate before departing. I had 4 other painters. On average they provided their estimate two days after looking at the house. Timeliness and professionalism are very important to me. My impression of Vlad is great thus far. In about a couple of weeks, I will have my house painted by his business. More to follow...
