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.

From the first interaction, Jose was very quick to respond. I am very happy with the job he did in painting the interior of my home. Jose knows his craft well and was helpful to me as I was making a few final decisions regarding paint products. I would use Jose again in future and recommend him to my friends and family.

On a whim, we decided to sell our home to buy another. We needed to list it fast. Unfortunately there were three rooms in need of plaster repair and a new paint job. And repairs and touch up on two staircases where baby gates had caused damage. Wes of Millertyme painting came through in a big way. He worked on his day off, repaired all rooms and staircases, repainted all three rooms, perfectly matched the existing paint color for the staircases and did it all in one day. All by himself. Work quality and professionalism were impeccable. We were able to list our home and show it at least a week earlier than anticipated. Thanx Wes on a job well done!

These guys were great! I loved how efficient they were at painting and they were super nice. We had them paint our exterior and it was awesome to have a paint specialist come out and help pick our colors. I gave them 4 stars because we had them come out after the final walkthrough and touch up some places. The painter didn’t tape off areas very well for the touch up because you can see the lines aren’t very clean. He must have been in a rush, and it’s not something I would call them back to fix again, but enough to make me fix it myself. Overall, they were great and efficient and our house looks 100% better than before:)

Sabu and his team were amazing! They worked super quickly and did exactly we wanted. We had them paint a black accent wall in our basement and we love how it turned out!

Dave did a great job with our home. Dave and his team put in new baseboards and casing and painted the walls and ceilings in our hall, entry and 3 bedrooms. Dave also recommended some additions that elevated the look of our home and finished everything off nicely. His team paid close attention to details and did an amazing job making sure we had even and crisp lines with our paint. Everything looks fantastic and we love how it turned out. I am confident that we wouldn't have gotten the beautiful results that we did without Dave’s input and experience.

Very impressed. Ivette worked really hard to match a 10 year old paint and it looks great. They also fixed and covered crazy colors in the kids' rooms to get the house ready to sell. It looks amazing. They did a great job. They were also fast, efficient, and on time. Highly recommend.

He responded quickly and came out right away to do a free estimate. His price was very fair and was able to do our job a few days later. Quick, clean, and great work patching and repainting the trim on our home. He even did a great job marching the paint.

We are very happy of the work that Ricky did for us in our basement. We recently finished our basement and Ricky and his crew did all of the painting as well as for a built in entertainment center on the main floor. Quality work, quality materials and they were also responsive when it came to touch ups.

Alan was a breeze and a joy to work with! I can honestly say we've never worked with a better tradesman. He was responsive, professional, and excellent at his job. Our painting project presented some challenges, which he was forthright about, and accomplished it in a way that exceeded our expectations. We're already referring him to friends and will definitely hire him again.

Don is a very professional guy with good pricing. He's easy to work with and he did a great job with our cabinets and painting our whole house. If we had any type of problem, Don was very good about getting it taken care of and fixed. I defiantly recommend him. Don't waste your time with other painters.
Josh A.
Jose and his team did an amazing job in our basement. I had a few quotes from people that didn’t even come out to my house. Jose was willing to come out and then even beat a quote from another company. I really appreciate the work Jose did and will reach out to him if I have any other painting projects. Thank you again Jose.

Ricky and his team did a great job. My place had a lot of dark colors and I wanted it lighter and was worried the dark colors would show through but Ricky and his team primed all the walls and the light color looks amazing. He was always on time and did a great job cleaning up after. He's quote was very competitive and painted 3 floors at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend him.
