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 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 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.

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 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.

I was looking for someone to paint the waiting area, bathroom, and hallway of my massage clinic. I called three different companies with high ratings on Thumbtack for estimates. The first one never showed up. The second one was nice but out of my budget. Along with paint, I needed drywall repair. I was quoted one price without the drywall repair and one with the repair. Also, the quote didn't include the paint, that would be extra. PPP Paint Services' estimate cut the second companies quote in half and included paint, drywall repair and the paint to do the job. They didn't give me two quotes, they automatically assumed the cost of the paint and the drywall repair. The other company said it would take three days, PPP Paint Services had it done in less than seven hours! The job was done quickly, professionally and flawlessly! I will definitely be calling them again when I decide to finish the rest of the clinic.

My classroom walls were lime green and royal blue. This company painted over those dark walls with beautiful light blue paint, worked quickly, and worked to ensure that the job was done wel and that I was satisfied. I am very happy with my new walls and would recommend Bear Creek Painting Inc. to anyone!

Rigo Painting did an exceptional job on the exterior of my 2,000 sq.ft. home. They were always on time, worked consistently, and finished the job in less than two days. On review, I have not found any area of Rigo's performance that I do not consider far above expectations. I recommend Rigo Painting to anyone considering exterior painting and I am sure they will perform just as well on the interior. I look forward to hiring Rigo Painting again when I have an indoor project.

From start to finish, Steve was the example of professionalism. He was upfront and honest about every detail of our paint project. My husband and I didn't know as much about paint as we thought we did. Steve explained the differences and why he chose one brand over another and it made complete sense. The rooms we chose to have painted went from just okay to absolutely amazing. I don't feel there is anything Steve could have done better because the work he did was perfect in my opinion. I will definitely recommend him to any and everyone I know. We will use him again for any future paint jobs as well.

Kevin did an amazing job painting our house. He and his partner got the job done in two days and did the job for the best price that I was quoted. He used quality paint from Sherwin Williams, provided the receipt for transparency and was friendly and progressional throughout the process. Hire him before someone else does!

Herrera did an excellent job painting kitchen cabinets and painting 2 other rooms. Cleaned up after he was finished. He was very helpful with helping me decide which finish I needed in the different rooms. I am planning to getting some tile and floor work done next with this company. Great job.
