Everything went great with Dzevad. He was quick to come out and provide an estimate for painting our shutters, garage door, trim, and front door. His price was great and he stuck to his quote. He started two weeks later and was completed in 3 days. My wife and I really like the job he did on the house. Before he started the paint chipping badly. He scraped off all the chipped paint and prepping the house to be painted. He was also extremely friendly and helpful during the entire process. He was even great with my young children (1.5 and 4 years old) who always felt the need to chat with him as he worked. I would definitely use Dzevad again.

It was a pleasure to work with Leo. Very pleased with his understanding of my unique project (preparing a house to sell w/o going overboard & $ crazy). He was able to address many things from repairing composite deck issues to painting kitchen cabinets, painting and repairing walls of multiple textures, bathroom work, basement cleaning and plumbing, new doors, etc.

I hired Austin to clean out my father's house (the accumulation of ~60 years of "stuff") and from our first interaction to the last, he was highly professional, pleasant, responsive, and punctual. I had to trust the person/company that I hired because I live four hours away. We met and walked through the house, he contacted me that evening with a quote, and came back the next day for a key. Austin and his crew completed the work in two days (including scraping and painting a workshop in the basement). We kept in touch via text, and my realtor checked the work once everything was completed. I would highly recommend Austin for estate clean out work!

I wanted my floors refinished. I had several companies look at them. They all said they were too far gone to be refinished since they were over 90 years old and had multiple layere of paint and finish on them. I had just about give up on the idea of redoing them. Jason came and evaluated them he informed me that yes they were old and had some issues , but they most definitely could be refinished. He came out and preformed what he does with his process . He said the would look good but they well exceeded my wildest expectations. They are absolutely beautiful. I am stund by the final outcome. This is you refinishing company. Thanks!

Chad's workmanship is meticulous. He came into a room in need of help with sanding, cutting trim, painting and it looks better than I could envision myself. His work was quick and spot on. If he didn't like it, he made it better. Will be hiring Chad again.

Met Jesse purchasing paint at Sherwin Williams. He was flexible with my schedule and fit me into his schedule soon after meeting. He initially painted a high stairwell and hall but was able to return in a couple of days to do additional work including ceiling drywall repair and trim painting. He was very professional but easy going and we easily negotiated a fair price. I would certainly consider him for future work.

Bill did a fantastic job hanging our art work as well as a dresser mirror. He made great suggestions on the best placement of our art and everything looks wonderful! He was a little early which I like, very prepared to work and extremely considerate of our home. Why struggle trying to hang your art? Would highly recommend and will use Bill for other projects

Recently I needed some drywall and painting work done in my house so I called Andrew to do the work as I had heard he was very skilled. I was very pleased with the quality of his work along with his friendly personality. The work was done in an efficient and thus timely manner. In addition to the work that I originally contacted him for, he was kind enough to help me with another issue that I was having that I had previously been unable to find anyone to help with. He is very knowledgeable in his work and a kind person as well. Strongly consider Andrew for any work that you need done in and around your house.

I did not know this man in any way before hiring him. I say that because I know many people write reviews for friends and family. I am 63 yrs old , a widow and have hired 4 handymen since my husband passed. THIS IS T H E B E S T handyman I have ever hired. I can not imagine that he deserves anything less than 5 stars from anyone. Attention to detail; patience to do a demanding job correctly, never took a break other than 20 minutes for lunch in a 9 HOUR PERIOD. Honest,Christian, responsible, professional, polite and cares 100% about how he does his work. Hiring again this coming week and hope to have him here for needed work as long as I can manage living in my home. Do NOT hesitate to hire Ron. Pay his mileage if you are asking him to drive a long distance, which I did. Time is Money ( P.T. Barnum) and Ron is cheap considering his skill and knowledge I leave 100% honest reviews here.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 $200 to $2,500. 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 does a painter charge per room?

The cost to paint a room will vary based on the size of the room, the type of paint you select, any ceiling or trim work needed, and any repairs needed. If no repairs or other additional work is needed, painting a room with contractor-grade paint could range from $1 to $2 per square foot, including materials. Selecting a luxury paint (some cost more than $100 per gallon) will certainly increase your house painting costs. Here are some additional examples of average house painting costs, per room:

  • 12x12 room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 12x12 room with an 8-foot ceiling: about $100
  • 14x16 master bedroom with a 9-foot ceiling: about $150
  • 14x16 master bedroom with an 8-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 16x16 living room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $175
  • 16x16 living room with a 20-foot ceiling: starting at $225

How much do painters cost?

The national average cost for an interior painter ranges between $450 and $900. 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.
