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.

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.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

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.

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.

Perfection in painting. Rocky's keen eye's lend great attention to details. Professional and courteous. Punctual. Goes above and beyond what is asked of him. I can't say enough of how pleased my husband I of the job he did in our home. With the exception of 2 rooms, he painted the inside of our home and suggested other ideas that turned out beautiful. If there is a wait for his painting services, wait. It is worth the best painting job, ever. Thanks again Rocky. We look forward to working with you again.

We had a great experience with True Colors Custom Painting. Omar and his team were professional, thorough, and helped with every step of our deck painting project from stain selection to shade recommendations. They quoted fairly, finished the job promptly, and were communicative about arrival times and updates. When the project was completed Omar personally inspected the work. We are thrilled with our newly painted deck and highly recommend Omar and his team.

Outstanding workmanship, ontime and trustworthy. The owner Kane and his crew did a remarkable job painting the interior of my 1500 sq foot home at extremely short notice. I, being new to the area turned to Thumbtack to search for paint contractors and Kane promptly text me with a quote. I definitely will use again and recommend his company.

Omar and his team were a pleasure to have in our home! They are kind, considerate and friendly. That is all on top of a very high level of professionalism and quality of work. The project was a total home paint job, from doors to floors to ceilings and every bit of it looks great. This company is the total package and a perfect choice for your painting needs. I will be hiring them again.

I was moving into a new place and needed someone to come out right away and paint, before moving my stuff into the apartment. I was very pleased with the responsiveness, always considerate of our time crunch, and hard work by A.A painting. I also think it was a great value for the price. You should know I am a very picky customer, so a four star is a great rating from me. I think this painter is perfect for general painting and all spruce ups. You will be happy with this painter and his pricing . Thank you for doing our job well and in such a timely manner. Very much appreciate it!

Rockey did a great job, went above and beyond, and even cleaned the windows for me! Looking forward to having him back to paint the exterior this summer.

Donovan and his team did an outstanding job painting the interior walls and trim of my new home. The trim was originally stained and needed proper sanding/priming to allow for paint. The line work is outstanding throughout the house and his team was very careful with the newly finished floors. He also worked over a holiday to complete my job in a timely manner. Thanks for the hard work, guys!!

Alphonso and his team did an outstanding job painting my fence! I had gone through so many unresponsive painters and contractors find him was a blessing. He was here exactly when he said he would be or earlier. He did a fantastic job within my budget and I know it was done right the first time. I will absolutely be using him for future painting projects.

Rockey came out, looked at my job late one afternoon, provided me with a written estimate by the next morning, and was able to work my job into his schedule the following week. He was punctual, took great care to protect the floors and surface. He also corrected some mistakes left from a previous painter. Rockey also cleaned up after himself. We are looking forward to having him come back to paint the exterior of the house. Highly recommend Rockey J. Smith Painting!
