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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nilto and his team did a good job repairing drywall cracks and painting almost all of the interior walls in my house. He was very kind and easy to work with. I will call him again for any future painting jobs.

Hired Sam's team for an interior house painting project. Due to the curve of our stairs, we were unable to paint the stairwell, landing and second floor ceiling ourselves. Sam scheduled the painting quickly so it could be completed before Thanksgiving. His team was prompt and very thorough. The new paint looks wonderful, and I would certainly reach out to them again for any future projects.

CertaPro did a fabulous job on my interior home painting project. Maidelys came out to prepare the quote and returned a spec sheet that evening with a reasonable price. The painting team was also available for a quick turnaround. Ricardo and his team did a spectacular job. They filled holes, sanded, and painted five rooms in a single day! And the workmanship was incredible! Maidelys did an excellent job of coordinating the entire effort as well. I highly recommend CertaPro and will definitely use them again in the future.

Great experience! Our condo feels brand new again. We were working with a really tight budget due COVID layoffs and Jeffry was so accommodating.. He included paint for the trim and even painted our interior doors at no cost to us. The crew showed up at 8:30 and by 2:30 everything was done. We will definitely use this team for future projects!!

Amazing experience with Coloramma H&B Improvement. Allowing them to do our interior painting renovation project was 100% worth it. We are thankful to Carlos and his team for doing a wonderful job! Scheduled the estimate for the evening the same day. Surpassed our expectations on quality!

We recently had our interiors painted by Navarro's Painting. They did an EXCELLENT job! Wilson and his crew were friendly, professional and respectful of our home. They went above and beyond to ensure quality work was done. From ensuring proper drying time between coats to make sure the paint cured, to patching and repairing some minor wall damage we had in our skylights. I would absolutely recommend them to any neighbor, friend or coworker. In fact we are planning our next painting project now for them to come back.

Nilto provided a very reasonable estimate on an interior paint job. He was able to do the job within a few days of me contacting him. I'm very please with the quality of the work, and I'm already speaking with him about the next job I'd like for him to do.

We lucked out by working with Jandres Painting! They were a pleasure to work with. They communicated with us all along the project to understand our needs and help us understand the process. In fact, they expedited the project to ensure it worked with the rest of our move-in plans. They are incredibly hard working and take pride in their work, which looks amazing ! We will absolutely work with them in the future and recommend them to anyone looking for interior painting!

The entire process was very smooth. Maidelys came to our house the same day when I contacted her on Thumbtacks and she's very knowledgeable about what needs to be done. She also rest assured me that CertaPro will do a superb job painting the interior of my house and they did! Maidelys, Luis and his team took great care of our house and treated us like family. We wanted to paint our walls white and the walls were in dark color and rough shape but they spent the time to repair and smooth them out before painting. Combined with the excellent paint job, the place looks better than new. We are very happy with their work and I would definitely hire them again in the future on other paint projects.
