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 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 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.

We recently closed on our new home and had Steve and his crew come out and help with the overwhelming task of painting. They painted the walls in three bedrooms, the kitchen, and main living areas. Steve and his workers were extremely courteous, professional, and patient with all of our questions. They even helped put wallplates back up after they were done painting. They also got everything done in less than a day so we could start moving furniture in, which was a huge help. We will definitely be using Steve again for future painting needs and would gladly recommend his company to anyone. Thank you so very much!

I recommend Fadi. He was punctual and did a good job. The paint we got for the job wasn't enough; he went out of his way to get more paint to finish the job. My home looks airier, and I am pleased with it. Thanks, Fadi, looking forward to working with you again.

The job was scrape, texture & paint all ceilings and repair and paint interior walls. Estimator Liliana was a pleasure to work with. The two man crew sent to do all this - not so much. They can paint and cut in for changing colors very well. The lost stars are for preparation and cleanup following the work. Instead of removing switch plates an door hardware, they masked it leaving the old color behind. Ceiling scrape is a messy job. They did minimal cleanup leaving LOTS of fine plaster dust on floors an other horizontal surfaces. Despite multiple reminders, some repairs did not happen. Bigger problem was use of enamel paint on doors with extreme levels of VOC's still airing out. Biggest problem was small crew. What was a five day task became two weeks. Even though the house was vacant and unfurnished. They did hold to the quoted price. The challenges were all in execution of the work.

Excellent paint job. Very neat, zero mess, very professional looking results when they finished. They worked tirelessly to get everything right. The exterior of my house was in very poor shape. We had some rotted soffits in some areas, some rot around the garage doors, and the wooden exterior on the chimney need fixed. Next Door fixed all that with professional care and then painted my house with a quality exterior paint. I want to thank Robert and Fernando and his crew for such an outstanding job! They did everything for a fair price. I will absolutely call them back for any future needs - Robert S. Piece

Overall, work is acceptable a few stray paints here and there. Painters were difficult to understand but were polite and tried to get a good finished job. Cleaned up the floor and helped in replacing frames on walls.

They did an excellent job overall! Came on time, very courteous and took great care to ensure that they did a quality job. They even went and exchanged the paint that was purchased because it didn't match correctly. Hard working and very reasonably priced! Would recommend to anyone!

Working with Juan and his crew was a pleasure. We started a home remodel last year, so we’ve worked with a lot of contractors, including painters! Of all the contractors, Juan has been the best! He is professional, punctual, and friendly! The quality of his work is really great and he will fix any issues on the spot - that’s huge! He completed our project on time and in budget. No lost days. I highly recommend Juan for your paint project. He is Amazing!
