Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

What colors should I paint my house exterior?

You have many options when it comes to paint colors. For example, an off-white creates a traditional look, and it looks great with a bright door to contrast it. Yellow is a happy color that, while light blue is reminiscent of an oceanfront style. Gray houses are also on trend, providing a classy and neutral tone that remains warm and inviting.

How often should you paint your house's exterior?

Expert opinion is mixed, but the general range is five to 10 years. However, this depends on many factors. Houses in harsh climates with extreme temperatures, lots of dust or ice or intense sunlight may need more frequent paint jobs than those in temperate climates. Also, wood houses will need new paint more often due to the changes within the wood itself. You should also consider painting the outside of your house if you plan to sell it.

What is the best exterior house paint?

Acrylic paints are generally considered good options for today’s home exterior paint jobs. You can also choose an oil-based or latex (water-based) paint. Also, look into specialty paints for your doors, roof, gutters, siding and other exterior surfaces.

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.

What questions should I ask an exterior painter?

While painters’ online profiles provide helpful customer reviews and other information, it’s still important to ask the right questions. Ask whether they have sufficient workman’s compensation insurance to cover any injuries to avoid any potential financial liability. Get in writing the preparatory steps the painter takes to get the house ready for painting — simply painting on top of compromised paint won’t work. And does the work include a warranty? If the paint starts to fade, peel or crack soon after completion, you’ll want recourse.

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.

Should I pressure wash my house before painting?

Pressure washing your siding before painting is an efficient way to clean your house in preparation for receiving new paint. However, it must be done correctly to avoid causing water damage or damaging the siding itself. 

Depending on the PSI rating of your washer, you should stand far away enough from your house to avoid removing paint or etching into the siding itself. Also avoid injecting water behind the siding, which typically occurs when spraying upwards at a low angle. 

When in doubt, consider hiring a pressure washer near you before your painter paints your home’s exterior. Or, contact the best painters near you to see if they offer pressure washing services as well.

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.

Extremely pleased with the home exterior paint job done by Rene and his crew at USA painting! The prep work, powerwashing, wood repair, painting and clean-up was all first class, and all the guys were punctual, professional, and communicated well throughout the process. Price was very reasonable, too.

Bobby responded almost immediately to our request for exterior painting of the trim, doors and windows. He came out to do an estimate, and started painting that day. He was courteous, professional and FAST. The paint job looks amazing; we even had neighbors and friends ask for his business card. We will definitely use CornerStone Services in the future!

We had a great experience working with Jeff for our exterior home painting project. The quote was fair and thorough, his team showed when promised and did the job faster than estimated with no surprises or hidden costs. We have a historic home so we have our share of projects and contractors to hire and we’re disappointed that more of them don’t involve painting so that we could continue to work with pro painting.

John and his team did an amazing job painting the exterior of my home. They were flexible with my schedule and finished all in one day. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for someone who takes pride on his job and makes sure everything is finished as expected. I have worked with many contractors from thumbtack but Josh by far is one of the tops contractors I have hired. I will use them again if I need other painting jobs.

Miguel painted the exterior trim, gutters and over 35 wood windows/doors on our home. His communication during the entire project was outstanding. He always let us know what he was going to do and when he was going to do it. His pricing was very competitive and fair. His honesty is beyond reproach. For example, he found wood trim problems that we were not aware of and fixed them before he caulked/painted the wood. He could have just painted over the problem and we probably would have never noticed, but he ensured the work was done right. He takes pride in his work and wanted to make sure we were satisfied. We are very satisfied with the result! Our new paint job looks fantastic!

I had the exterior wood trim and shed painted. The prep work, clean up, and overall quality was very good. The company made me feel like a very valuable customer. They accommodated all my requests and quick to respond when I had questions. I quoted out my job to 5 paint companies and H & E was by far the best price. Also, I had a few spots with wood rot that were unable to paint. But H & E fix those small spots for me and little to no cost. I would recommend H & E hands down. Let them give you a quote.

Discipleship Painting was very attentive to all that I asked for. My mother passed and we are selling her home and we had to paint the whole interior and some of the exterior of the home. John spent a lot of time reviewing the job and walking the house with me and advising. I appreciated that very much. He calculated how much paint I would need to buy and told me exactly what to get. The team came in and prepped and were very thorough to protect floors and fixtures from the paint. They spent a lot of time doing this and I was very pleased. There were some repairs to the ceiling and he expertly made those repairs and made it look great. The painting itself was very clean and precise and I was very happy with the quality of work. He even installed a new door knob for a bathroom that was having issues (without charging me for it). John and his team did a great job. We realized after the job was finished that a couple of switch plates were accidentally left off and he came out to the house even after the job was finished and put those back up. John's very customer oriented and will do everything to make sure you're happy. I'm happy and I highly recommend that you hire Discipleship Painting. You will be happy too!

Carlos is professional and great at what he does. Always on time and incredibly friendly. He and his assistant, Michael, painted the exterior of my home including garage door and the front door. Really easy to work with. They are coming back to do an interior room next week and I'm excited because they do GREAT work!! Hire him! You won't be sorry. Carlos has very fair pricing. I hired him in the spot. Update: Carlos came back and painted my interior sunroom. It looks BEAUTIFUL!! I'm never losing his number. He is fast, CLEAN and reliable. Always on time and incredibly meticulous with his work. Best person I have ever hired.
