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.

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 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.

We just had one room to paint that needed patching and a few coats of paint. Alex worked very hard and the room looks lovely.

The interior painting work done by Jorge and Proman is terrific! He painted our old, dark brown doors to white and they look great. His painting is precise, his bid was the best-priced, and he did the work in great timing. I will definitely hire him again!

Wasted no time in setting up and appointment to come out and give an estimate. Did a great looking job painting a room and touching up the paint on another wall.

Gongora Painting did a fantastic job painting our condo. They came out to take a look at our project quickly and provided an estimate at the same day. They then finished the work in the time agreed and the end result is incredible, we couldn't be happier! We would definitely hire Gongora Painting again!

It was so easy to set us, and the price was far better than the other quotes I received. I had an exterior paint job, and the house looked so much better afterwards! There was great attention to detail and they made sure I was happy with each part of the job. I will definitely use Mijangos Painting again if I need any painting done.

Jose and his crew did a phenomenal job painting the exterior of our vinyl windows. They were a cream color and after being painted by Seattle Painting they look brand new! We couldn't be happier with the outcome. Jose made sure everything was perfect and put in extra time and energy to ensure the job was done right. We will definitely hire this company again in the future! Thanks, Jose!

We were very pleased with the job Julie did for us. We weren't planning to paint our entire condominium, but Julie did such a great job that we kept asking her to do more and before we knew it she had painted the entire interior. Julie is fast, efficient, and easy to work with. We definitely plan to use her again for future painting projects.

I got a garage painting and epoxy flooring job done through DYC painting. David was very responsive to my request and was able to provide a quote just based on project description and photos. And he was able to come on a weekend and finish the entire job within half a day. The quality of work was great as well.

So happy that we hired Julie to repaint several rooms of our house! She's a great communicator, has tremendous work ethic (shows up on-time every day and puts in a full day's work), and is highly skilled at her craft (truly a PERFECTIONIST). This was a big job -- included painting walls AND ceilings in every room and also painting the tall walls/ceilings in the stairways. Julie's work was flawless and we couldn't be happier with the end result.

Cam was very responsive and punctual! He was quick to come out and give us an estimate. Was very accommodating to our wants/needs, took the time to help us to pick a paint color, and got everything completed on time. He was even able to patch up multiple random parts of the dry wall and it all looked seemless! Overall, he did an excellent job and we would not hesitate to call him again for any other painting needs that come up! Thanks again!!
