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.

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.

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.

Monkey’s painting did a good job for the interior painting of my house. They’re very professional. I asked for a initial visit of my house and they came and provided me some suggestions about the paint colors. And when they did the painting, they paid attention to very little details. I did find some paint drops but they came back and fixed all of those for me. It was a great experience working with them!

I can’t say enough good things about this company! The owner and crew were quick and very detailed. We needed interior paint, doors, and trim all done before we moved and they completed it in a day and a half and it looks amazing…kind of hate having to leave it now 🤣 they also were the most affordable of all the options. Would definitely recommend using them for any and all your painting needs-both interior and exterior!

Highly recommend Alvarado Painting and team! They did an excellent job painting multiple interior doors as well as two exterior. They were able to start right away, which was a plus given our timing. This team arrives on time, works hard & provides high-quality work. Excellent responsiveness & follow-up by the owner Richard. We even added additional projects for them to take on. They will be our go-to painting company moving forward.

Cam painted the entire interior of our ADU, including pretty much every surface possible: walls, ceilings, doors, baseboards, window trim, garage, etc. He was very quick to respond, showed up within an hour to provide a quote, helped us with the paint and color recommendations, was always on time for the work, was very friendly and personable, and even finished the job ahead of schedule - All while still offering a better price than other bids we received. The quality of his work was top notch, to the point where I don’t think we even saw a single touchup needed by the time he was done. I would absolutely recommend Cam to anyone looking for painting work. Definite 10/10

When it comes to home renovation and interior design, choosing the right contractor can make all the difference in the world. Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Aziz, an interior painting contractor, and I have to say that his work was absolutely fantastic. From the moment I met Aziz, I knew that I had found a true professional. He was polite, punctual, and incredibly knowledgeable about his craft. As we walked through my home, discussing my vision for the space, Aziz listened attentively and offered valuable insights and suggestions. Once we had settled on a plan, Aziz got to work right away. I was amazed at how quickly and efficiently he worked, and yet he never sacrificed quality for speed. His attention to detail was second to none, and he took great care to ensure that every surface was perfectly prepared and coats of paint applied. Watching Aziz work was truly a joy. His passion for his craft was evident in every brush stroke, and he approached each task with a level of care and precision that was truly impressive. He even took the time to clean up after himself at the end of each day, leaving my home looking neat and tidy. The finished result was absolutely stunning. Aziz had transformed my home into a beautiful, welcoming space that I am proud to show off to friends and family. The colors were rich and vibrant, and the walls were flawlessly painted. I could not have been happier with the final result. In conclusion, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Aziz for the incredible work he did in my home. He is a true artist and a consummate professional, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of interior painting services. Thank you, Aziz, for your fantastic work and for making my home look and feel so much better!

Stop reading other reviews and hire these guys. I hired different professionals for different work, painting, flooring, electrical etc. By far I had the best experience with these guys. They are perfectionists and do a great job with whatever they work on. They fix stuff that is not even part of the main job description, their prices are super reasonable and most importantly they clean up well after the work and leave the place better than they found it. If they would do landscaping or other work, I would hire them for that too in a heartbeat. The photos don't do justice to how great the place looks right now. They do fireplace, cabinetry, walls, doors everything interior and are very hardworking and fast
