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 $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 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 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 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 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. 

Get started on your painting project, and 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 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.

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.

The Paint Guy was such a pleasure to work with. Not only was the job done nicely and in a timely manner, but he is very responsive! Our nursery was nicely painted and he also installed wallpaper! Highly recommend The Paint Guy.

Isaiah's Pro Painting were GREAT! Neat, professional, on time. My wife and I were very pleased with the entire experience with Isaiah. Isaiah professional painting has become our go to painters. We have recommended Isaiah to our close friends and family who were considering painting their homes. Why would anyone try a sizable paint job themselves, when Isaiah Professional Painting are just a click or a call away?

Having my kitchen cabinets painted from a dark color to white was a very unsettling thing for me, but Dambrack painting company made me feel comfortable with this project. I would recommend Dambrak to fulfill your painting needs.

Mike came in and repainted my kitchen for me after recently having it painted by someone else. The paint used the first time was the wrong type of finish that you would want to use in a kitchen. Mike is very knowledgeable and provided the pros and cons of using different types of paint for each room. His many years of painting experience are evident. He also provided a reasonable price for the job completed and provided prompt communication. Will definitely be using him for my future painting projects!

We hired Dambrak Painting to paint our hallway, foyer, staircases and basement. Their work is PHENOMENAL! From the quoting process to the paint selection and implementation, everything was explained, detailed and executed fully. I didn't take before photos (silly me) but am including the afters. I highly recommend them!

Rudy was great!! He showed up to look at the space to be painted and provided an estimate. Upon return he and his team prepared the area and got to work. Any areas of concern were handled promptly and to our satisfaction. Call RUDY PAINTING for all your painting needs— you won’t be disappointed!!

I had a very positive experience working with Dambrak Painting for an exterior paint job. Rafael was extremely responsive and communicative throughout the process. The cost was affordable and was much better than estimates I had received from other services (I shopped around quite a bit and other services were charging almost double the price of Dambrak). The paint job on my aluminum siding makes it look like a new house! Overall, I am extremely happy with my experience with Dambrak Painting and I would highly recommend the service for future paint work.

Several spots missed and globs of paint down walls. Said he’d come back to do touch ups and ghosted me instead. Literally just didn’t show and stopped answering all messages. Missed complete areas of walls and trim paint is all over my wall paint that I now have to fix. Would not recommend.

My wife and I decided to try In Living Colour Painting and are glad we did! We only planned to have our family room painting, but received a fair estimate to also have our 2nd level hallway painted also. Shantae and staff were awesome! She was very professional from our introductory call and throughout the entire job. We are now planning to hire In Living Colour again to paint our bedroom. You’d be doing yourself a favor by hiring Shantae and crew!

Artech first attempt at the painting I hired them to do was incredibly awful. It was a huge mess, paint slopped everywhere. Some trim was painted halfway with gloss and halfway with flat and looked ridiculous. They came back to fix up the job and unfortunately for me, it's still awful. There is paint smeared on my new floors and on new light fixtures. They painted over electrical outlets. They made a huge mess of the entire job. It looks AWFUL. I have attached some photos of some of the mess they made. I am horrified and I will need to hire someone else to re-do the entire job. I am the world's worst painter and I could have done better by myself.
