Stephen helped us mount TV over fireplace. He did a great job overall. He came three nights to complete this job. First time, he did not prepare very well. Second time he came, he worked very hard and finally have it done. But this time he forgot to bring some accessories, so he has to come a third time. He also helped me mend the wall with free of charge. He is dedicated, hard working and love his job. But I have to say he is not professional enough, as he did not take off shoes or wearing shoes cover when entering room. Overall, it is a good experience, as he definitely worth the money we paid! I will still consider him for next project.

Outstanding in every area. We hired Jorge for a full day of power washing, gutter cleaning and window cleaning in preparation for our house sale. He was very responsive, turned up on time, did a thorough job and heard my special requests and acted on them with no questions asked.

Benjamin was more than I expected as he scraped paint spots off of my windows from a house painting project recently. His persona was professional and expeditious and I would definitely have him return!

They did some interior paint for house before listing to market for sale. Actually, they did a very good and fast paint job! The house looks much more beautiful than before. Will recommend them to my friends if somebody wants to have a paint work.

Jose did a great job repairing a leak in the drywall around our skylight. He had to replace moldy insulation and drywall twice the amount originally anticipated and then apply texture and paint. He also repaired 2 other areas. He completed the job on time and it looks spectacular!! We are thrilled and highly recommend Jose to one and all. We would definitely use him again.

Leno and his associate did a great job on our interior painting project. We have high ceilings, which they handled with ease. Quality and timely work. We also had them spray paint our doors, as well as paint our trim and window sills (which required removing and re-installing all blinds - Leno was happy to do). He even came back at a later date to touch up a couple spots. All for a fair price. Will likely be using again and would definitely recommend them.

Stacy replied to my inquiry very quickly and came the next day to paint our master bedroom. We have a fairly large bedroom and he completed the painting in 2 1/2 hours- it was great. He even helped me move furniture away from the walls and took down blinds and put them back up! We will definitely be having Stacy do more work for us in the future!

Kriss did an outstanding job for me! I was really impressed with how hard he worked to provide excellent customer service. I needed him to complete the work by a certain time. He completed it ahead of schedule. And I was very pleased with the work he did for me. It was not an easy area to paint. It required attention to detail. He work shows that he is indeed a very skillful painter. I shall be calling upon his services again in the future!

We hired Nick to paint the interior of our 2200 sqft home (tri-level). Not only was he meticulous about his work, he is not satisfied with doing under par work. He gave us a competitive bid (we had a total of 10 bids) for the enormous job, and he completed in a very timely manner, respecting that we were still living in home. He not only did he paint, he patched, textured and fixed what the previous painter messed up, he fixed the caulking in my 2nd bathroom. He made sure that our house was cleaned up and all paint supplies were out of reach which is very important since we have children and pets. He was very easy to communicate with and very easy to get in contact with. He is very knowledgeable regarding his profession. We are definitely using him for our exterior and would highly recommend him.

Allan and his team worked quickly and efficiently to paint 28 interior doors and 3 closets for us. They worked hard to complete the job in only 2 days. They were more than willing to accommodate us for no VOC paint as well, and offered us a very reasonable price. We look forward to having them help us with future house projects. Thank you!

Chris and Joe are a couple honest, hard working guys who want to leave you happy with their final product. When I initiated communication with them via the app, they quickly responded and arrived promptly at the scheduled time. We had multiple dry wall cracks in our house. They guaranteed a complete fix of the cracks, vs. a quick patch job, which what was done previously and the reason why it re-cracked. When providing the quote, they were clear that they don't choose the paint and leave that up to the owner to provide. Now I know why. I had to get multiple paints custom mixed at Lowes and none of they were a perfect match. This meant there was a visible difference on the paint over the crack fix vs. the rest of the wall. With that said, my one takeaway is to just let these guys quote for a complete paint job over the wall affected. It will be slightly more pricey, but look at lot better. Don't know a lot about paint? Express that to the guys and they will guide you in what type of paint to get! Trust them, they aren't trying to upsell you, only recommending what will look best. We ended up making optimizations to our dry wall project while it was going on, but it would have been a smoother and quicker process if we had agreed to a more comprehensive quote from the very beginning. I'm pleased with the work done and they were very respectful about keeping things tidy and leaving the house looking as it was before (meticulous hanging of plastic, masking, sweeping, and returning items as they were). One item I want to particularly applaud them on is how receptive they were to my questions and candid feedback. They have integrity in their work and genuinely want to leave the customer satisfied. They guaranteed their work and encouraged me to reach out if there was any issues.

Jim and his crew did a great job on my home! Turned a very old home with very old grey and blue paint that was over 20 years since the last paint job into a modern like new home with three new colors. Very pleased with the work!

I had my entire interior of my house painted including mill work. I was a bit nervous about how everything would turn since the last painter got spray paint on my dining table and ruined by front lawn by running it over with his oversized utility van so I had to fire them - argh!! Chuck was very professional, accommodating and respectful of my time by being always on time and responding promptly when I had questions. He made sure that I was 100% satisfied...and I am! It required him to come back a couple of times after the job was done to fix a couple of small minor things but he made sure it was taken care of. If recommend him to anyone that wants quality painting and great customer service. - Lea from Renton

I had hired a different contractor who started job and bailed. Brian at craftsman construction saved me! I had them convert garage space into a bonus room. They also did a lot of sheetrock and sheetrock repair plus the entire house finish work/trim and painted walls and all doors. They did an impressive job, I would highly recommend!

Alan did an incredible job on my shower. He fixed a horrible tile job (done by someone else) and built a custom mortar-and-tile shower floor. His work was perfect and his professionalism was outstanding.

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 $200 to $2,500. 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 painters cost?

The national average cost for an interior painter ranges between $450 and $900. 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 a painter charge per room?

The cost to paint a room will vary based on the size of the room, the type of paint you select, any ceiling or trim work needed, and any repairs needed. If no repairs or other additional work is needed, painting a room with contractor-grade paint could range from $1 to $2 per square foot, including materials. Selecting a luxury paint (some cost more than $100 per gallon) will certainly increase your house painting costs. Here are some additional examples of average house painting costs, per room:

  • 12x12 room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 12x12 room with an 8-foot ceiling: about $100
  • 14x16 master bedroom with a 9-foot ceiling: about $150
  • 14x16 master bedroom with an 8-foot ceiling: about $125
  • 16x16 living room with a 9-foot ceiling: about $175
  • 16x16 living room with a 20-foot ceiling: starting at $225
