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.

Painting the interior and all the cabinets in my house was a huge project and Tyler made sure the job was completed on time and it looks amazing. He would even stay late to make sure things stayed on track. I will be hiring them to paint my exterior in the future.

I am in the process of selling my home and the guys at EuroStyle Painting made so much of my stress going away. Mario and his team showed up right on time, and once we established the painting plan, work began right away. Their painting expertise is top-notch and they hold themselves to the highest standards; sharing that they are transplants from New York where they worked on some major NYC contracts. I was also stressing out over some minor repair items that I wasn't quite sure how to tackle, but Mario has a "I can do that" attitude and made all of my minor repairs look easy. I am already hiring him again to help me tie up a few more odds and ends that came up during my inspection, and I know that for the professionalism, value, and quality of work I am getting that my home is in good hands. I absolutely recommend EuroStyle Painting.

Bret is no joke! This guy does exceptional work. My fiancé and I previously bought a town home and the paint was atrocious. Bret came in and made this home brand new for us. He works fast but is a perfectionist. This was my first time using thumbtack and I am very happy with my experience thus far. I got extremely lucky with OMB painting and will refer them to all my friends and family. Thanks!

PWM Painting is the best of the best! We put an offer on a house that was contingent upon the sale of our current home. To our delight and surprise the sellers accepted, giving us 10 days to get our home ready for sale. I repeat TEN days! In swooped Paul and his amazing crew. They were there with us every step of the way, handling the exterior and interior painting of our home. Paul arrived bright and early every morning going over the days plan with us and his team. These guys went above and beyond for us, especially with our tight timeline; even offering suggestions about applying the correct type of paint on walking surfaces, and accepting requests for additional trim surfaces added in last minute. These guys were flexible with working around other contractors! I can’t say enough about how wonderful that was! (Many of our other contractors threatened to walk off our job site due to others working in the same area at the same time! :( Cough cough- carpet guys) not PMW; they were flexible and understanding! PMW’s team is Amazing- our pods were picked up from our front driveway the day of exterior paint, the landscaper had just laid new sod the day before and the pod driver completely tour up the sod along the edge of driveway during removal. Picasso (nick- name for a painter on the crew) got down on his hands and knees and helped me repair the grassy dirty mess! The entire PWM Painting crew is communicative, skilled, prepared, timely, reasonably priced, and top that off with friendly, cheerful and kind! These guys will take care of you every step of the way! And they do a beautiful job! Hire them! You won’t regret it! Thank you thank you PWM team! We couldn’t have done it without you!

I highly recommend MGM! I am very pleased with the qualify of the painting work done. They are punctual, polite, and take great pride in their work. They wanted to ensure I was happy with the job on the spot and also followed up to make sure I was satisfied. They even cleaned up after themselves better than they found it.

Julie is a pleasure to work with. She arrives on time, was able to complete my job in less time than she anticipated. I had a problem area that she presented great ideas and they worked out fantastic. Julie's estimates are in align with other painters and should I need more interior painting done, I would call her first.
