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.

Highly recommended. We absolutely love our home now mostly because the paint made such a difference to us. He did an excellent job, was the right price for us, finished in great timing and was very professional. Painted the whole interior and some of exterior in 6 days. He was very nice and friendly. He worked well despite us moving in, unpacking and had kids running around. He even took our extra trash from the move to the dump for us! Went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and he did a good job. We will definitely be using this company again for our future painting needs. I have attached before and after pictures (before interior was cream and master was bright yellow-after is ancient marble (Sage) by SW. also added dark trim to the exterior of the house).

Amy was so quick to respond and willing to help me. She and Eva painted our kitchen cabinets. I reached out to her on a Thursday, and my kitchen was completely done by the next Thursday. Such a blessing! They were kind and trustworthy, and did a beautiful job in my kitchen. So worth it!

I hired Victor with short notice. I painted a great deal of my upstairs on my own...didn't want to pay someone for something I was able to do myself. It would be worth the cost (very reasonable) to have Victor to come and just finish the job. I hired him to do my kitchen...I didn't want to deal with can lighting, cabinets, fridge, oven. He came in and got the job done quickly and professionally. He cleaned up after himself and left my house cleaner than when he arrived, the finished work was wonderful. I will be hiring Victor again for other paint projects. Thanks for helping me out!

Erik answered our request right away and came out promptly. His bid was very reasonable and when we added more to the job, he wasn’t willing and didn’t overcharge us. I would highly recommend him for any painting/touch up job you have.

Shawn did an incredible job painting our house! He completed the entire project in the time we discussed, and did it well. We ended up finding more flaws in our walls than expected, but he was flexible and willing to take on the extra tasks. He did an excellent job, and we definitely recommend him!

Five Star did a great job painting the ceilings in our condo and I'm really happy with how they turned out! They were quick to respond and squeezed me into their schedule and I was able to have my project completed a week after meeting with them. I made some changes to my initial request and they were able to manage those changes and worked with me. The cost was more affordable then any of the other quotes we received. I would definitely recommend them!

WOW! Graceful Painters did an amazing job painting my entire 4200 sq ft home interior! They payed a lot of attention to the preparation and worked really hard to be sure I got the result I wanted! I’ve used a few painters since living in this house and I wished I had found Graceful Painters first! I will use them every time from here on out! Angel was the boss and went to great lengths to assure that he and his team did everything right… they were far and above my expectations!

This is the person I recommend you call--he is an artist and a gentleman.Tom is without a doubt, the best person I have ever hired to come work on my home. I purchased a large townhouse that had been trashed by renters. The place needed a complete makeover. There was a lot of commotion as many projects had to be coordinated by the various teams of workers. Through it all, Tom was pleasant and extremely helpful. The custom paint job he did is getting rave reviews, the kitchen cabinets look new and the trim and baseboards add the perfect finishing touches. Tom is detail oriented perfectionist who gives a lot more than he charges for. If you love your home, but can't spend a fortune, call Tom for an estimate. P.S. Other service people have tried to take advantage of single women, but Tom just gives extra help onsome "handyman" tasks! I could even go out of town and trust him with a key to my house.
