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.

Reviews for Bellevue painters

I had an excellent experience with this painting company! Friendly and responsive staff. They did a great job painting my house.

Saul and Andres did a great job. We first hired them for painting the ceiling of our deck. It was not planned, but on the same day, he painted another small room.
Alan I.
Hired for entire exterior paint of my house. Pleasure to work with Israel. Professional, excellent quality work and would hire him again if I ever needed painting again.
Kazuho O.
I am really happy with the work that Art of Painting did for our interior. True professionals. Their services started with a consultation from the type of paint, to how the different spaces could be best painted, and how to problem solve situations as the work started to move forward. Our space has numerous problems that were not foreseen, and for each problem, the team identified them proactively, thought through solutions and discussed them with me before moving forward. In many instances, they went way above and beyond painting work, so that the paint finish can be great. Their price was very reasonable for the high quality and speed of the work. I would hire them again for any other painting work going forward.

Cam and Emily painted the exterior of our 3600 square foot house in three days, under budget and with tremendous quality. They were extraordinarily flexible getting this done for us - we were in the middle of a remodel when we first talked about the project and had no firm deadlines to get the house painted. When all of that changed and we needed to have the house painted within 10 days because of a wedding reception being held at the house - they made it happen! They had great suggestions on colors and where to use base color versus trim color. They were very careful with the new stained glass that had been created surrounding the front doors - not a spot of paint on any of the panels. And always with graciousness and smiles on their faces. This team is a true find and we will use them again, gladly!

Pleasure working with Jorge. Excellent communication. Very responsive. Got our home painted as scheduled. Good value. Will hire him again.

Bogdan was very prompt and responsive to my queries regarding the painting job for our media room (walls & Ceiling). Ivan the painter was pleasant to work with. Though he arrived late on all days he did a reasonable job. Ivan covered the walls with one coat of dark paint but some of the areas were patchy. When I contacted them again Bogdan agreed to send Ivan for a second coat in some of the areas. Reason for a 3 star rating - End result is so much better but some of the areas are still patchy, there were few areas where the paint got on the carpet and punctuality.

We were happy with how our exterior paint job came out to be. Victor has good experience with painting and he and his team were able to deliver what we wanted. They were accommodative and flexible with our requests. Although Victor ran into certain circumstances out of his control with lead to delays, he was able to work through it and finish the job as promised.

Iris and Rudy are some of the most kind and professional contractors I have worked with. They are excellent communicators, punctual, extremely hardworking, friendly, and multitalented. I love supporting a family business. We hired them to clean and paint our garage. Iris and her team came first and cleared and cleaned the space. They were so efficient and did quality work. Rudy and his team came to do the painting and they were flexible, easy to work with, had a good knowledge of products for the various painting surfaces. They went the extra mile for me to make it an easy experience. They were even open to adding a few small projects (constructing a wood pile holder, painting a playhouse) to the quote and offered very fair pricing for these additions. I would definitely hire them again for more work and learned Iris’ team does organizing in addition to cleaning and Rudy does carpentry, framing, and much more!

I am very tardy in writing this review for William and his team. They did a fabulous job painting my entire house interior in Bellevue and were friendly and nice to work with and have around my two grade-school age kids. They were accommodating when I changed my mind about a paint color and we had to redo the foyer after they started. I would definitely recommend them!

We went with eco home painting for painting the interior of our home. It started with getting an estimate for the project and Leo was prompt in his communication, and provided competitive pricing. He did a good job at the project. He also took up additional unexpected dry wall work that was initially not plan of our proposal for reasonable additional costs. He takes in feedback of the customer and works upon it and ensures customer satisfaction and happiness in his work
