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.

GC Painting was hired to paint me home. After a day of painting only the trim, I was informed that is all they intend to paint. They insisted the quote was for "only the trim" although I clearly stated I need my entire house painted. Needless to say we still do NOT have our house painted. After a month of back and forth we are now needing to move onto another professional.

I went on Thumbtack Sunday night to get my bedroom painted, and within one hour, Joe from Ortega Paint replied. He was polite, responsive and had a great rate. He also used his Benjamin Moore discount and purchased the paint. Joe showed up today (7/11/18) and did an amazing job. He was clean, polite, meticulous and did a great job painting my bedroom. I highly recommend Joe and Ortega Painting Co. to anyone looking for help with a paint job. Alex

Bobby of Paint/Pro did an excellent job painting the interior and exterior of a small newly constructed building, actually a yoga studio. He didn't complain about using several colors of paint and made some useful suggestions about how to paint certain areas. The paint job was neatly executed and he cleaned up everything when he finished. From beginning to end, Bobby was pleasant to work with and very professional in every aspect. I'll hire him again to do my next painting. Very highly recommended!

Jorge & his team did an amazing job painting my living room, dining room & master bedroom. They were extremely fast! I was amazed. They started at 9:30am and finished by 5pm with two coats of paint. The paint they chose is exactly what we wanted, white with no shine (matte). The paint job is perfect. The price was right.

Thank you, Tex Painting!! I hired Tex Painting to paint the exterior of my house. Scott was flexible with my schedule and made a late afternoon appointment for the initial quote and George was right on time for that quote. George was friendly, professional and explained the job thoroughly. I appreciated that I received a written quote that afternoon! The painter was meticulous and the end result is beautiful! What a difference a coat of paint makes! I highly recommend Tex Painting and would definitely hire them again.

They came on time. They were friendly. They did a great job painting our stupidly high ceilinged living room. I don't know if you've painted recently (we painted other smaller rooms) but it is hard work. We couldn't even imagine how to tackle it. So, I am impressed. They also dripped zero paint anywhere I can see. The price was fair and we are happy.

Pablo and Picasso Painting did an EXCELLENT job on painting 3 of our bedrooms! He was on time, responsive, and so nice to work with. His work is very meticulous and professional. I have used a lot of painters, and Picasso Painting is now at the top of my list! I highly recommend him, and am planning to hire him again very soon to paint my kitchen cabinets. You will not be disappointed!

I had a FANTASTIC experience with Fine Brush Painting (and would 100% recommend them again). George, the owner, provided us with a free quote and was honest/transparent about cost/paint needed/time it would take, etc. He was responsive & easy to get ahold of & got our painting complete SO quick (and around our schedule/availability). 10/10 would recommend Fine Brush Painting!
