Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

How many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

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.

Painting exterior trim and replacing gutters
S. T.
I hired him to paint the interior of a rental property. I asked for 2 coats of paint, trim, walls and ceiling. Additionally I asked for a wallboard repair and a ceiling knockdown and texture. They showed up on time. I believe I received only one coat of paint on the walls, ceiling and trim. There were MANY missed spots that would not be showing thru if there were 2 coats. Much of the trim was not painted. The windows were painted shut. I asked them to open them. They missed 3 windows I had to open myself. Many drips, runs and missed areas in the painting. The requested knockdown and texture looks like an amateur did it. They painted the built in draws in place and painted them shut. They put the blinds back in the holders but didn't secure them. In all I have spent 5 days correcting the mistakes, problems and repainting. They are NOT professional painters. LOTS of errors. I should have done the job myself. I did go over some of the problems prior to paying them. I just missed SO many. They are nice guys. However, I will not be using them again for painting. They also left a mess in the kitchen where they cleaned brushes as well as many paint drips on the floors and counters. Did not replace the electrical covers. Yes they were the low bidder. I got what I paid for. A VERY poor job.

Konrad and his crew did an excellent job on painting the exterior of my house. They were all very professional and courteous. Cleaned up where they had scraped paint off and where they had to replace the lumber that had rotted. Have had many compliments from the neighbors as how well the house looked. Would recommend him very highly.

I’m sorry to say that I cannot recommend John, local Renaissance man. He was hard to paint the interior walls of my home, trim and bathroom cabinet doors and drawers. He wrote up the description of what he would do and the bid. In the description of the work he would do he listed trim. Later he tried to tell me that I did not ask him to do the trim and was going to charge me $200 extra to do it. I was pretty sure I had mentioned the trim so I went back and looked at his description of his work that he himself wrote. He had included the trim in that. I pointed it out to him and he claimed that he did not remember it that way in that that was a typo. I explain to him what a typo is and that was not a typo. I felt bad for him and agreed to meet him in the middle and paid $100 towards the trim job. He quoted that the job would take him 12 days. He started on July 14 and ended on August 5. He left nails in the wall and painted over them. He ripped a towel bar out of the wall and did not repair the large hole left in the wall.I have pictures. He painted only halfway down behind my washer and dryer and did not paint behind the refrigerator. He told me the refrigerator was massive and he could not move it. I told him that it was on wheels and it was relatively easy to pull out. I have done it. He told me he benchpresses 300 pounds and he couldn’t do it. We told him that it was unacceptable not to paint behind the appliances. He did paint behind them finally. He lost hardware that belongs on some drawers and also the towel bars. He has since found the hardware. And I was able to find the towel bars and had a friend put them up and repair the wall. He added $90 to his final invoice. When we ask him what that was for he said that he had done some extra things. He was told that he was not asked to do anything extra and he did not ask if he could do anything extra so he would not be paid that $90 and he was not. He also asked for an advance of the last half of his pay. He did not get that either. He claimed that I told him my ceilings were standard height. I did not tell him that. My ceilings in the living area are 10 feet high. He was in my house give me a bid, he had eyes and glasses. It just makes him look ignorant to say that he didn’t know my ceilings were 10 foot high. Good Lord all you have to do is look up. I left a list of unacceptably things. He did attempy

I needed my trim painted quick. I got a quick response and John was over the same day to look over the job. He took measurements and and came up with a fair price. While he initially quoted 3 days, he over delivered and got it done in a day and the house looks amazing. I would definitely recommend him, attentive to my request and feed back, he is also friendly and easy to talk to.

It was very refreshing to find a professional who quoted me a fair price on all the work I wanted completed. This included painting all rooms, ceilings, doors, and trim in the house, minor plumbing, installation of light fixtures, and renovation of a bathroom. Homemakers and Handymen were on time, within budget, and the quality of work was superior!!! After completion of the project they cleaned up and met with me to ensure I was completely satisfied with the job. I would highly encourage and recommend Homemakers and Handymen for any type of work to be done.
