Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a painter during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to use virtual tools for communication. If you’re hiring local interior and exterior painters, contact them to see if they’ll set up a video call to assess your project. During this call, they can get a feel for what needs to be done and may be able to give you a price quote. 

Discuss potential plans and strategies for getting the work done safely. And ask whether they accept virtual or digital payments.

How can I find out if a painter is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a painter is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, visit your local jurisdiction or state’s government website for information.

The CISA website also provides a helpful resource: Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page is intended for a national audience and includes 16 different categories of critical infrastructure sectors. Some jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure, but not all of them do.

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.

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 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.

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.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

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.

Do painters offer remote or virtual services?

Though painting has always been an in-person job, painters may be willing to offer some virtual help due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If you come across painters’ profiles that state they offer remote services, message the painters to see what those services include.

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.

The project was a success. Andy was very professional and gave me a great price on an interior paint. On time and finished early, I would highly recommend Classic Painting!

Miguel rocks. Period. Do yourself a favor and have this guy complete your painting project. He painted our entire home interior (2700 sq ft). He is our official paint dude. Very glad we found him on Thumbtack.

Mr. gaytan and his crew did a phenomenal job painting the interior of our home! They had an enormous task and completed it quickly and cleanly. I have already booked Gaytan Paint & Services for some fence staining later this month.

Painted the entire interior of the house, including the garage. Did some minor sheet rock repair also. Andy was always on time, did a thorough job, including the clean up. He even helped move furniture around! He also left behind the unused paint for future use, if needed to touch up. The painting makes the house look like a completely different place! Great work, at a great price!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with ProCoat Painting on my house project. His estimate for the time it would take was right on point. Miguel and his associate did a fantastic job. They painted the entire interior of my home. Every room with crown molding and baseboards and a new paint color all walls. The detail in his work is phenomenal. I also asked him to paint my existing kitchen cabinets. They turned out a beautiful mahogany color. All in all, they did an incredible job, very courteous, very quiet, and very dependable work. I will be using his services again soon for painting in my garage.

I hired Robert from construction up for an interior painting project, he did an extremely amazing job. It was obvious how professional he was. He came there on time gave me the estimate the same day and started on the dates I requested. I highly recommend him also because he used high quality paint. Up construction is the company to work with if you are looking for a job to be done on time, want to get the best for your money, and want the best quality of work.

I highly recommend ProCoat to anyone looking for a very professional, skilled painting company. I had the whole interior of our house painted and am very pleased with the outcome as well as the time frame in which it was completed. Miguel the owner of this company has clearly found his calling. In addition, I also had a special "custom room" done.... with a double stripe around the middle of the room, it turned out amazing!! Thank you so much ProCoat for your hard work and great customer service!

We recently had a project completed by Santos and his crew it included walls, ceilings, trim and cabinets. From the beginning Santos was punctual, honest and dependable. During the project the entire crew worked efficiently to make sure everything was properly taped off and covered and the end result was a top notch interior paint job. I’m very pleased with the results I received and would highly recommend Santos.

Instead of helping me understand the process and help convince he basically said I am not the man for your job and took the easy way out. He wanted to only do one quote of spray paint on interior, when I asked for two he replied What I have described above. Never offered to explain or help customer understand or even come back with another price for two quotes. Says he has been doing this for 15 years but has t learnt to help customers understand the process. Don’t think he is serious about painting or doing what’s best for the customer.

DAC Enterprises recently completed a home beautification project for me that consisted of interior painting and general carpentry. The work DAC completed for me took four days, and this was the exact schedule estimate I was provided. Also, DAC provided an accurate price quote for the project. I was impressed by the professionalism, timely response to my questions and the quality of work I received from DAC. Daniel, the owner, and his staff were trustworthy and honest. I highly recommend DAC Enterprises for your project.

We can’t say enough good things about Miguel and his work ethic. He quoted us a very reasonable price to paint the interior of our new home and worked quickly. Miguel arrived on time every day and did his thing. His is one of my favorite people to have worked in my house as he is very pleasant and I could often hear him laughing at the random podcast he listens to. If I found an area which needed to be fixed, or a spot of dropped paint, he would quickly take care of it. I would hire Miguel for any job I have available in the future and highly recommend him! Thank you, Miguel!

Ron and his crew of Mighty Oak Home LLC did an excellent job in painting the entire interior of our home. He professionally detailed everything that was to be included in a written estimate and even went above and beyond everything that he stated he would do! We were so impressed with his work that we are using his services for many other projects in our remodel and also 2 other properties that we own. It's very hard to find a good contractor now-a-days, but with Mighty Oak Home, we found the BEST!

We had a 40 year old commercial building that need repair to the walls, new walls, and a lot of extra work. Martin met with my husband and said he was impressed with Martin immediately. We had gotten another price on doing the work as well. Martin was very reasonable and seemed very qualified to do the job so we hired him. He did a beautiful job on our building. He went totally out of his way to make sure we were happy with the job. It was such a pleasure working with him on this job. We plan on having our residential home, interior and exterior, painted and we will certainly be having him do the work. Thank you, Martin. If you need any painting done, you will do yourself a disservice by not meeting with Martin Gayton, talking to him, and getting a bid from him. You won't be sorry. He was respectful, courteous and accommodating throughout the entire job. Wanda and Alan Forshage
