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.

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.

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 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.

John, Daryl and his team were extremely professional and did a great job on painting all the interior walls, ceilings , trimmings and doors of my home. I would highly recommend them for any painting projects that you may have big or small.

It was such a pleasure working with Sam! He painted our entire house (interior), including all the cabinetry and did an amazing job. We are so pleased with the final outcome. He is also very professional and dependable. You can't go wrong with Felix and Sons. We will definitely be calling on him again for future projects.

We hired Jesus and his crew to paint the interior of our home. We were out of town and met him the initial appt to show him the rooms we needed painted and the colors. We were working with two primary colors and two accent colors. Very high ceilings and angled corners. We communicated via text and he was great keeping us updated. The team was there on time and completed the project on time. He was willing to add an additional room for a reasonable price. He did a wonderful job edging and cleaning up the work areas. The only issue was there a few spots where they didn't apply enough paint and the original color bled through. We touched up the areas ourselves as we didn't come back to the house for almost a month.

Mr Herrera provided the best service I’ve had in years! I’ve owned a few homes over the years in Allen and have been mostly disappointed with service providers. But not this time- I found a GEM.... The job was to paint the entire interior of my rent house that was a mess. I’m planning to move there so I wanted it done right. There was more than the usual prep-work needed due to renters. Luis was the only painter I inquired that would include the additional patch work in his regular bid. (The other two quotes I received: one would charge a lot more and the other refused to do it) Luis and his crew finished 2 days ahead of schedule and surprised me by making an empty space in the home into a functional closet. It is amazing! I am very picky yet during the walk thru I was so impressed as I found nothing wrong; that’s says so much! Wall to ceiling lines are so precise. No drips lines on woodwork. And his men cleaned up so well it left the home cleaner than when they arrived. Nothing sloppy about this work. It’s so refreshing to find a man who takes such pride in his work and remains humble. Mr Herrera is honest and easy to work with, he understands your vision quickly and can add great ideas. His prices are more than fair - you won’t find a better price nor will you find better quality workmanship. I found out he also provides other services. He is my go-to guy from now on.
