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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Should you wash walls before painting?

Yes, in most cases you’ll want to clean your wall before painters start. Washing walls before painting helps get rid of dirt and grime that could affect how the paint adheres, including primer. You can do this using a wall washer, especially if the top of the wall is hard to reach. 

The best way to clean walls is to use a solvent that won’t affect the surface underneath. Some experts recommend using a sponge, warm water and/or a mild detergent or soap. Abrasive washing may remove some of the current pain.

Cleaning painted walls should be done with care. If you’re not comfortable with washing the walls yourself, consider hiring a house cleaner near you.

Poor quality & knowledge of work. Not reliable and trustworthy. Had my interiors done with him. The interior door paint started chipping off in few weeks only. I would not recommend hiring him. I would like to update on Cleiton's work. As mentioned above we had some issues with his work, but Cleiton was very prompt to respond to the issues. He and his team worked hard to fix the issues. A big shout to the thumbtack team (especially Devon!). They made sure that to check the progress of the work.

Julie just finished interior painting job at our house. She did an excellent job with great finish. She was responsive to our questions and showed up as scheduled. She took care of minute details and finished the job with great quality and no mess anywhere. We had some confusion on the scope of the work and agreed upon price, but we sorted it out. Overall, very happy with her professionalism and the overall quality of work. I highly recommend Impression Painting and will definitely hire them again for any other painting project.

I chose S&K Painters not only for their reputation but due to their willingness to work with me and to come up with innovative solutions to some of the requests I had for them. Not only did they have an excellent price, but the work exceeded my expectations. During our final walk through they were more than accommodating in my requests on the final punch-list, they even agreed to replace all of the outlet covers in one of the bedrooms. They tried to clean off the old BLUE paint from the covers and although it looked ok, I asked if they could replace them instead and they accommodated. They did an excellent job of taping everything off and covering up all the floors appropriately. Last they did the work in the tight timeline I had requested. They completed a full interior paint job of our house, painted the front door (interior/exterior), painted all the railing – black (left the balusters white), replaced a patio door casing (one side only – which was a great solution as opposed to replacing the whole casing), and refinished the patio door threshold. I HIGHLY recommend S&K Painters for any of your work, they are easy and professional to work with.

After receiving quotes from more than 10 different painters in this area, I finally decided to hire J&B Painting Group to do my interior whole house painting project. In the first appointment, Jason and his partner came to check out the house, discussed the painting work with me in detail, gave good recommendations, and set up the right expectation of the result. During the actual work, they carefully masked/covered the unpainted areas, performed necessary prep work to fix cracks, holes, and broken tapes, sand unsmooth surfaces, add wall textures, and painted my house in two coats. They listened and addressed my feedback where I needed extra work. They were very punctual to start the work early in the day and communicated the daily progress clearly. They tried to accommodate my tight schedule and completed the project ahead of time. I am very happy and satisfied with their work. i will hire J&B Painting Group again in futute.

Pavel contracted to paint the entire interior of my house and cabinets. He did a great job with attention to detail. Was very quick to respond and very dependable. Pavel too the time to do proper masking and prep work to leave in impeccable finish on the walls. He also painted all my doors and windows and trim which was again a job well done with attention to detail which I expect. I was happy with his work and contracted him further to refinish my kitchen cabinets which came out great. Highly recommended Pavel for any job painting. - very easy to work with with great attitude - very professional with attempting to detail - will do whatever is needed to make the job right according to clients requirements - very reasonable and competitive quotes - very responsive

After interviewing about 10 different painters, we decided to go with Cam and Emily after meeting them in person during our home estimate. They painted the entire interior of our 3200 square foot home and we are very, very happy with the end result (the color and the quality of the work!) They strategically worked with us to paint the rooms in a certain order so we only had to stay in a hotel for a few days rather than the whole time. This made a huge difference for us because we have a toddler. Finally, Cam and Emily are simply very nice people to be around so we never felt inconvenienced or uncomfortable with having them in our home for 9 days. We highly recommend Cam and Emily and will definitely hire them again if we need any painting work in the future.

We hired Junior to paint the interior of our home (including the walls, ceiling, kitchen cabinets, and doors) and he did an excellent job. He is very customer-friendly and has a lot of patience, he listens to the customer and does whatever I ask him to do. He also provided additional services such as floor repair, roof cleaning, and deep cleaning for my home. We were very pleased with his services and highly suggest Junior for any House-related needs.

We worked with Felipe and his dad Izaias for multiple projects in our house. We are really happy with the work they did. Projects we hired them were for interior painting for the whole house, remodeling the fireplace wall and kitchen backsplash replacement. They are very detailed and precise in their craftsmanship and ensure high quality work. We also appreciate that they were open to all of our ideas and were able to customize the remodeling based on what we wanted. They were very communicative throughout and quick to respond. We highly recommend them and would work with them again for other projects in the future.
