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.

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.

Reviews for Cleveland painters

The painting wasn't terrible but the outlet and light switch plates wouldn't have been taken off if my boyfriend wouldn't have mentioned it. Two nails were painted over instead of removed. The line between the baseboards and the walls are not crisp. The trim around the entry ways to rooms weren't painted white because in the contract I didn't say I wanted doors painted even tho this was just trim, there were no doors involved.

They were very good and very professional. They painted my home quickly and nicely, and really worked with me. If I need painting again I expect to call upon them first.

Donovan painted the entire house in one day. He did a great job. Even painting parts of the house that the original builder didn't do. Since I am currently out of state he sent me pictures of the completed job. His quote also came in about 500 dollars less than his closest competitor. I would definitely recommend Donovan to anyone needing their house painted.

My new home had a less than desirable paint job. I took a chance and hired a professional on thumbtack versus a big local painting company. I do not regret my decision! The work I received was excellent. Attention to detail was paid in all areas that were corrected and painted. Philip put me at ease from our first meeting. He was left alone to complete his work throughout the week with absolutely no issues. He is a true professional, and his dedication to his craft is reflected in his work!

If you need painting, Red Line is the company to call! Thomas is amazing and dedicated to ensuring customer satisfaction. He came the next day to give a free estimate. He was patient and kind and answered every question. I originally just wanted the kitchen painted but the price was right and I had them paint 3 rooms, a foyer, and hallway! He fixed a large crack that ran from the top of the door to the ceiling. He even helped move the heavier pieces of furniture! I am so pleased with the work, I had him give me an estimate on the master bedroom & bathroom & a guest bath. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Omar is a pleasure to work with as were his employees. This job was all exterior work. Some tasks required him to work on a 40 ft ladder. There were also 5 dormers to be patched, caulked and painted at a steep 2nd story pitch. The level of skills and effort required for my job was beyond that of most of the painters I talked to. He is very knowledgeable, has excellent attention to detail and doesn't cut corners just to get finished. It took a number weeks to complete due to weather issues, but it was worth the wait. I'm completely satisfied and planning to have him come back.
