King is an experienced carpenter, who I've had work for me on 2 separate projects. In the first project he remodelled my basement bathroom. The job was started by another team, but King came along -- finishing out the job, and correcting mistakes the first crew had made. On the second job, King did the majority of the work for approximately 800sqft of basement remodel. Doing framing, drywall, fixtures, flooring, rerouting a staircase and moulding. He led a small crew (painters and laborers), and accomplished the job relatively quickly. King is delightful and friendly to work with. He was mindful of little things.. like calling ahead when he's about to arrive (he can come EARLY some days :) ) as well as treating my autistic son with a lot of respect.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

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 many coats of paint does the exterior of a house need?

Your house’s exterior will likely need two coats of paint. With two coats, your house will look more even and solid in color and will be better protected from moisture and the elements. The painting should always occur over a primed and well-prepared surface.

The first 5 minutes Emily was in my home doing an estimate, I knew she was the one for the job. I felt comfortable having her in my home. She was definitely awesome to talk to as well. She was already prepared with paint samples and was super knowledgeable on what type of paint I needed for the type of textured walls I have in my home. Emily has great attention to detail by hand brushing and rolling paint on the walls. She and Cam were also able to do some minor home repairs for me. She truly prepped my house just in time for my house warming party! I found myself sitting in my newly painted family room for the first time in months. I highly recommend her for any paint jobs!

Decided to go with Leading Edge Painting, initially, because of the quick response. My wife and I are so happy that we did. Brad has been super kind and has displayed integrity like we wouldn't have expected from most contractors. We simply asked him to paint our exterior trim and Brad has gone above and beyond with patch work, power washing and trimming of bushes we weren't anticipating; all at a very reasonable price. We're glad we went with Leading Edge Painting and I'm sure you will too.

Julie saved me from my own disaster of attempting to paint the interior of my home. She had painted two bedrooms, living room, hallway and entry way and was very detailed and worked very cleanly. Julie is very professional and has a wonderful attitude. If there is any spackling needed, she's quite handy. She will ask questions and make suggestions to the project at hand.

Finding the right match with a contractor is difficult. I interviewed 5 companies and chose Chris and Acacia. Our timeline and scope of work matched. We had floors,lighting,baseboards,cabinet painting,new hardware and stone fireplace with mantle and bathroom tiling. I was very pleased with the quality of the work. Working with them is very easy and collaborative. I will hire them again.
