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.

Miguel did an amazing job on painting the exterior of my home. He was thorough and attentive to the details of what was required prior to painting. I appreciate the fact that he took his time as quality was certainly a priority to him. If you desire an affordable yet quality painter, Miguel should be your guy. I would refer anyone especially those close to me to Gonzalez Painting. I plan on hiring Miguel for future paint projects. Thanks Miguel for making my home look new again!!

Jim and his crew did a fantastic job painting our new home! Jim was very professional and knowledgeable about everything! He even came after hours to see our house and give us a free estimate for the paint job before we closed on the house. They spot check every square inch of where they paint and do a touch up. Would highly recommend this company!!

Jorge and his team were very professional from the beginning. The contract was broken down into an itemized statement of work and cost. The project (exterior house painting) was completed on time with all expectations met and exceeded. All J&L employees were courteous and friendly. I will be using J&L painting for future projects.

Last minute we decided to hire contractors to paint our 2600 sq ft house and kitchen cabinets. C. complete remodeling gave us the good quote and crew and jose were ready to work right away on the spot, also their painting was very good and detailed . Crew was extremely professional, always arriving on time in the morning and they finished the job in 3 days and even did some extra work without charge they painted ceilings. We highly recommend C Complete remodeling and we would definitely hire them for more work.

Mr. Bishop was very professional both before and during the project. I needed my living room painted from a very dark color to a very light one and I have very tall vaulted ceilings & walls. Before the paint project, I had a lot of questions and he answered all of them very promptly via email. He had all the necessary supplies and my living room looks AMAZING! The best part was that it only took ONE COAT - purchasing the higher price paint was very worth the money and I would not have known that without his recommendation. I will definitely be hiring him again and rest assured you will not be disappointed with his work.

I hired Restoration Painting to paint kitchen cabinets and remove and update kitchen backsplash. I chose this company based on the owners positive personality, willingness to do the exact work I was requesting without hesitation, and very reasonable prices. I leave a 2 star review based on an average of my experience; a 1 for the work, a 3 for the companies continued willingness to finish the tasks assigned and the owners attitude. To summarize the work, we had our backsplash replaced 3 separate times due to lack of and miscommunications of which tile should be going up, which left our sheet rock in a mess. There was no effort to try and repair Sheetrock until it was pinpointed and requested. I don’t use pinpointed lightly, any major or minor area that needed attention had to be pointed out by me. There was a huge lack of regard for any work that was subpar. The work took double the amount of time we were told it would take, not unusual, but mostly due to corrections. The cabinets were painted the backsplash was replaced (after I had to purchase the correct tile myself, should have done this on the front end) but this is what I am left with; cracks in 45% of the grout a day after the work was completed, broken tiles grouted to the wall, deck screws placed directly into the tile because of lost outlet covers that were not going to be replaced, one drawer completely broken, 4 cabinets put back on upside down, the baseboards not painted at all, putty all over the base of the cabinets walls and kitchen appliances, scratched paint, bubbled spray sheetrock, a broken disposal due to Sheetrock and grout particles being pushed into the sink, floors throughout the home smeared with paint, globs of paint dried that will have to be sanded and repainted on cabinets, a huge mess of Sheetrock and putty all over the counters and floors throughout the home, and to top it all off fast food trash in the kitchen and garage. Final summary of work, 5 days worth of 2 days of basic work and I’m going to now have to hire someone to come in and correct some (not all) of the work done. The total cost was reasonable and included materials, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Esteban is very kind. He is very friendly. He listens to your complaints very patiently. He came to my house on time all the time, which was very important for us. Initially, we asked Esteban to spray paint all the cabinets but due to the circumstances he was not able to do that and used rollers. As expected roller painting requires a more diligent effort, so he left lots of roller marks and streaks. We did not like the job. But he listened to us very carefully and accepted to redo the whole cabinets with spray paint. The final job was much better than before. As he honestly told us, a flawless job requires more hours of sanding, more hours of detailed work, so it means more man-hours. For my budget, I was not able to afford that so I can definitely recommend Restorationpainting if you are on a budget.

Issac came out and painted our living room and dining room, the previous owners of our house painted the walls a very bright blue and we wanted a very light tan color. Our walls also have rounded edges, making the job even more tedious. Issac came out Friday night at 6:30 and gave us an extremely reasonable quote to do the work and began promptly at 9 am Saturday morning. He worked until he had the job complete. He did an incredible job! He has a eye for perfection and we could not be anymore satisfied. When company came over to see our house, we had nothing but extremely positive comments as well as many requests for his business card. We already received a quote from him to do the rest of our house and will be using him again in the future. Very professional man and extremely pleased with the work he did for us.
