Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How can I find out if a painter is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To figure out whether a painter is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, visit your local jurisdiction or state’s government website for information.

The CISA website also provides a helpful resource: Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page is intended for a national audience and includes 16 different categories of critical infrastructure sectors. Some jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure, but not all of them do.

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.

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.

Do painters offer remote or virtual services?

Though painting has always been an in-person job, painters may be willing to offer some virtual help due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If you come across painters’ profiles that state they offer remote services, message the painters to see what those services include.

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.

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.

If you're ready to repaint the walls in your home, get free estimates from the best painters near you.

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 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.

Red Lion painting did a fantastic job painting our office. They communicated wonderfully and completed in the projected timeline. I am so happy with their attention to detail and feel they went above and beyond patching our walls before painting. Thank you Red Lion Painting!

We have hired MV painting twice for exterior painting. The 1st time to paint our deck, which is 2 stories tall, and the 2nd time to paint over 5000 ft² of our exterior including brick, shingles, soffits & doors. Prep work was excellent. They were prompt, clean, professional, worked hard and quickly, and just did a fantastic job over all. We plan on hiring MV Painting again to do some interior painting. Very happy!!

Don and his crew at Infinite did an amazing job on the exterior painting of our house. From power washing to prepping to painting and clean-up, everything was done very professionally. The job turned out great and the price was very competitive with other bids that I received. I would definitely recommend Infinite to anyone and will be using them again for all my future painting needs! You won't find a better painting crew around.

Dave and his team did an amazing job! The final look was so beautiful my sister just decided to repaint some places in her house - even though it was recently painted!!! The appearance is as if the entire place was spray painted because it is so smooth and even - no blemishes, drip/drop marks, or visible brush marks. In addition, Dave is extremely knowledgeable about quality paints, attention to detail and customer service. Highly recommend Aspen Ridge Painting!!!

POOR job! I have a bunch of photos, but just included a few. Job was priced to be a high end, yet 1) I have paint on the floor throughout many rooms 2) the lines where they taped bleed paint (definitely not crisp) 3) you can see the white paint through areas of the paint where they did not provide proper coverage 4) tape left on the wall and very WORST of all, 5) they must have set some sort of paint thinner/cleaner on my brand new shuffleboard and the stain is now wiping right off. I will work with Full Colors to receive compensation for damage. Will NOT recommend.

360 Painting fixed some drywall and painted my hallway and bathroom. They showed up on time and got it done very quickly and it looks great! I'll definitely be calling them for any future projects.

Infinite Painting did a terrific job painting my house. They power-washed, scraped, patched and painted the house, gables, trim, and front door. Don was great to work with -- super responsive, professional, prompt and did exactly what he said he would. The place looks great and I only regret I didn't do it sooner!

They did a full interior paint of my entire home. Ceilings, walls, trim and doors. They were great to work with. Communicated updates throughout the project. Cleaned up after themselves and finished early. Pride painting was very easy to work with. I would defintly work with them again on my next painting project. I am very happy I used them.

MV Painting crushed it on our office building. They were able to complete exterior and interior clean, prep, and paint in record time. They accommodated additional tasks that came up along the way. Very good painters, highly recommend.

We went w/5 Star because their bid was significantly less than the other bid we got. It didn't actually include appropriate prep work. We had them do the exterior of our house that had a lot of peeling paint, they power washed it and painted over it all which looks pretty shabby. They also painted all of the windows shut after being asked to be sure that didn't happen. They came back and remedied the situation, but that caused paint and the window sills inside to get cracked. If we weren't selling the home, I'd be extremely upset.

I rarely write raving reviews about contractors - but i can't say enough good things about DHC. They not only got it done despite a few problems, they did it very well. Exterior painting project, 2 story, 3 colors, late november. Good communication, well trained folks. They knew what to paint and what not to paint on my complicated and unique project. Great Job Derek, Kimberly and Francisco

I cannot give her enough stars! Best communication exchanges, best reliability and careful, quality work—she had to paint over dark green walls with a white paint and was able to do so in less than a day. Looks SO good!

Don couldn't be nicer! The paint looks awesome! My only complaint is I had just had the place cleaned and after they left there were sunflower seed shells on the floor and pee on the toilet seat and a few paint droppings on the hard wood floors. I had to clean the floors and toilets again. Literally the paint looks fabulous though and at a great price! I would use them again because Don was sooo nice!! Thanks again!

Great work ethic and quality of work. Very satisfied with the end results, we would highly recommend Red Rock Painting CO. Andy and his team always kept us informed of the key phases on the exterior home painting project. Craig & Anne-Marie
