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.

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 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.

I was very happy with the painting that was done with Above Standard Painting Co. He did a beautiful job of painting my kitchen and family room. I will hire him again.

We hired Above Standard Painting Co. to paint the exterior of our house (brick and steel siding). They were very thorough to ensure the entire house was power washed and what was supposed to receive paint did while the rest was protected. Nic and his colleagues were all friendly, professional, and flexible because of weather conditions.

He came in and painted the 2 story Foyer. They were on time, and very professional. We are very happy with the work, everything was covered and no paint was on floor or carpeting. Will definitely hire him again . He even changed the light bulbs in the chandelier.

Nic and his crew were friendly, professional, and respectful while painting the interior of my home. Any concerns I had during the process were immediately resolved to my satisfaction. The paint job is beautiful; neat, clean, and the ceiling lines are perfectly straight. (I was very concerned about straight lines) I will be hiring Nic again.

I have lived in my house for 5 years and I have had the house painted three times before David and his crew came and created a miracle and made my house look like a home. He gave me a few colors he thought would look nice and the final selection was perfect. I am selling the house and now I love how it looks and feels. David and his crew came in and didn’t take breaks they are very hard works. If you need a great paint job you better have him and his crew get it done soon, because I am steeling them to paint houses for me!

From beginning to end working with Maximum Quality Painting was a positive experience. They are professional. They show up when they say they will. The quoting process was very easy and straightforward and we got a fair price. The team was very respectful of my house being sure to cover up and then clean up thoroughly. And the paint? Well, my goodness, just perfect! We are so pleased that we already have our next job scheduled with them. I highly recommend this team.

I would most definitely call these gentlemen back to paint for me. They completed a project I was unable to do. They were professional, prompt, fair and did a spectacular job! I very pleased!!

John was very easy to work with. He and his crew did an excellent job, painting the complete interior of our newly purchased home. He gave special attention to the tin plate ceiling in the master bedroom, creating an accent for the antique light fixture that previously looked out of place. At his own expense, John took it upon himself to purchase and install new electrical plate covers that had been previously painted rather than refurbish the old ones. John's price was reasonable. We would not hesitate to hire John again

We were extremely pleased with the painting of our ceiling and all the walls on our first floor. They were efficient, detailed and finished project ahead of schedule. They took the initiative to finish a hallway to provide continuity to the project at no additional charge.

Quote was very competitive and was willing to start very quickly. Great communication during the process and respected our home at all times. Despite us changing plans and colors a few times they stayed on schedule. Would recommend to anyone needing painting.

Chong, did an awesome job, first communicating with us about organizing a time to come! Once a date and time was set he came a little before the time! Once here, he was busy working! It only took a few hours for him to paint a medium sized room and he did a great job! No regrets and nothing to complain about!!
