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.

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.

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.

I hired Brian and his crew to paint the interior of my home. They did an amazing job! Everything turned out perfect and just the way I wanted it! I would highly recommend his company for any of your painting needs and I plan to hire him again for our exterior painting project in the near future. Thanks again, Brian!

When Francisco came in to give me a quote, it was much lower than the other bids we received. I tried to email their customer service to make sure we were on the same page, but I was told everything was in order. Because of a misunderstanding, they painted with the wrong paint. HOWEVER, when I said I was dissatisfied and the work done wasn't what I had wanted, they came back and fixed it all. I had to pay for the special paint needed, but they didn't charge me any more labor hours. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

We were looking for a paint company to do our full house, basement to second floor, all before we moved in. They were so accommodating and worked around our hectic moving in schedule, cleaners, carpet cleaners, working from home etc and we are so pleased with the work. They have been incredibly trustworthy, always on time and extremely hard working to meet the timelines they promised. We will definitely use them again for any further jobs!

I hired Amel after seeing all of the great reviews on this website. He answered all of my messages right away and was able to come out the next day to give me an estimated cost of what our project would be. While he was here for our bathroom estimate, I walked him through the house to look at other rooms that we plan on painting in the future and he was able to give me ideas and approximate costs for everything. Amel and his wife are very punctual, professional, and just very nice. They were able to fit my project into their schedule for the week after our estimate appointment. My house is crazy with 3 small kids, a dog, and 3 cats. They had no problem setting up and working in the chaos, and answering my 4 year old's many questions. They completed our project in 2 days- hallway, foyer, bathroom walls/ceiling, trim, took our vanity from stained oak to painted white, wainscotting, and the door!! Amel filled all of the holes/blemishes in the walls, took all of the cabinet doors off, and all other prep work. They showed up early, and cleaned everything up. I highly recommend this company to anyone and look forward to working with them in the future. We are happy to support their business.
