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.

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.

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.

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.

I can write a full page of experience here with him and almost all terrible. I agreed him to paint my whole house. I even purchased the paint he wanted with other materials. House was left empty so he can easily move around. He left the job after 1 week as incomplete. He sprayed/dripped ton of paint on my floors (wood and tile). Everywhere is a mess. Walls look cloudy with unpainted areas. Parts of walls not painted at all. I had to go back and paint more than handful of doors myself. He messed up my bathroom cabinets as he was supposed to paint but he didn't even bother removing bad coating (easy as you can remove in 2 minutes). Left some of the cabinets not painted. He left a truckload of paint related trash in my garage. He messed up my accessories for hanging towels etc. kitchen cabinets messed up from paint spraying. He didnt get his masking (very few he did by the way). He painted over fire and smoke alarms. He painted over switches and door knobs. I have to change many of them. He painted over light frames. My bathrooms looked like construction area after he left.i am sure i left some out. And by the way i paid him what we agreed minus $400 after he told me he didn’t deserve. It has been 4 days and I am still working on to clean up his mess. Hired 3 people crew to clean the house. Ling story short stay away.

We chose CR Painting out of 3 because of the work ethics put forth. They were hired for texture repair and painting 4 rooms. Not only did they repair, they took initiative to repair small details. They were professional, punctual, and completed extensive wall texture repairs and 4 rooms with 4 different colors in 3 days. We are more than pleased and satisfied with CR Painting and hope to work with them again in the future. I only wish we had before pic, but attached are most of the results.

Gustavo and his crew did awesome work for me. A prior contractor did a poor job on my new construction work. I was in need of someone asap to fix it up and get me ready for inspection. I told them I needed it done fast. They came out same day and painted and sealed next day. Excellent and efficient work. They painted and sealed my outdoor cabinets and shelving and painted my bathroom ceiling and all doors. I highly recommend them and they had fair prices.

I give high marks to Steven Paul in all categories for my project of having the interior of my house painted; the communication, the ideas and solutions for achieving my goals; the selection of materials, the quality of work and the cost. If you have a project for painting, look no further. I would definitely choose Steven of Paintworks again.

I didn’t use Tonio for a cabinet painting project so I thought I would use him on several new doors I needed painting. I specifically asked him prior to accepting his bid if he had a sprayer for the doors because I wanted a nice smooth professional finish. He said yes. 1st issue was the price he quoted did not include the paint. This house project was a complete refurbish and I never had a previous contractor quote a job that did not include what was necessary to do the job. So I had to go to Home Depot to buy the paint while he prepped the doors. 2nd issue was he used a roller on the doors. He said he sprayed them but finishes the doors with a roller?! I asked why the doors weren’t smooth but had a textured appearance. He said it would look smooth after they dried. (They did not.) 3rd I had to show him all the places on the doors where he missed. The doors were unevenly coated and were not professionally done at all. 4th he was very sloppy with the paint. There were paint splotches on the garage floor, driveway, even on my newly painted walls. I had to repaint several places on the walls were paint was removed by the doors he leaned against them. I had to repaint several places on several doors after he left to try to make them look better. Tonio agreed to come back to paint the last door but didn’t come as promised. He put me off for another week. I told him never mind thinking I would do it myself. I had paid him previously for all 8 doors so I requested a refund. He said he would send it but didn’t. I contacted him again to advise I didn’t receive it but no response. Tonio seems like a nice guy and his reviews are great. But for me his work is very amateurish. He is not a professional painter. I guess I will have to go through Thumbtack to get my refund.
