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.

Nick and his Crew did a fabulous job! They painted the exterior of our house and stained our fence and we couldn't be happier. They finished on schedule and cleaned up every evening. We'll be calling on Bear Creek Painting for all our future painting needs!

PPP Paint did a great job painting several rooms in my house. They showed up on time everyday. Newman, the paint leader wanted everything perfect and spent extra time ensuring the job was done well. I am very pleased with the final results.

Unless you paint often it can be easy to forget how challenging it is. We were attempting to paint on our own and made quite a mess. Oscar was professional, customer focused, and dedicated to our project. We went from blue walls to white walls. Make sure you prime before you paint. The paint and primer combo gets quite expensive. Oscar also painted our walnut vanity compass blue. The finish is good but not as smooth as we would like. I believe a sander would have made a difference. This project took 2 days to complete.

The outside of my home needed some much needed attention. URI came out and listened to my concerns about some wood that looked like it was rotting and paint that was weather worn. He and his helper ended up replacing all of the rotting wood, fixing trim and painting the whole house in two days! Everyone comments how good it looks and every time I pull up I have a huge smile. The price was great and so was the work!

Outstanding is an understatement. My ceilings are over 20 ft tall. I had several painters tell me they couldn't do it. The ones who said they could, were willing to do it for the price of a mid sized car. Not only did Wifredo take on the challenge, he did it at a reasonable price. I am convinced there is no company out there that could have done a better job. He paid attention to details as if he were painting his own house. Take it from a perfectionist...look no further than The World of Painting and Services.

Pro Masters did such a phenomenal job on replacing fascia boards, adding gutters, and replacing siding spots. They also painted the whole house in a very short time. We highly recommend them for any project you need done.

These guys did a great job. They pressure washed the house, re-caulked all the joints, replaced rotted wood, painted, and cleaned up in about a day and a half. The house looks great. Thanks to Alex, Roberto, and the rest of their team. A job well done.

An incredible transformation of the super 70s cabinets we had. In love with the direction our kitchen is going in now! Luke and team were extremely punctual, polite, and broke down everything for us to see the value we were getting. Wouldn’t hesitate to call again. Workmanship was impeccable, and they even locked my house up for me when I couldn’t be there at the end of the job. Thank you Pro Painting!!

We were looking for someone with respected quality when it came to paint as we about to remodel our kitchen cabinets to white as we knew the task is daunting to do ourselves, so we came across EVER and a few others. Upon sending a photo of our kitchen on this platform, Ever offered me a quote the same day. We wanted to added other details done, like backsplash and handles and he was really accommodating and helpful in that area as well. The estimate was very reasonable and within our budget so decided to go ahead. Ever was punctual and came with his team on the day they promised and they executed their time really well. They showed good workmanship and knew what they were doing. Ever paid alot of attention to details and he used a real high quality primer and paint. Above all, the cabinets look amazing, in less than a week and I would hire him again. Below is before and After.

They have been professional, showed up on time and completed everything we discussed, in a timely manner. The quality of work has been great and we are more than happy with it all. They also gave us a great price! Will definitely be using them again. We've worked with many contractors and often been disappointed. We are relieved to finally find a good company! Thank you ML Carpet and Painting!
