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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Sun Prairie painters

Jim did a great job painting my house. He started and completed the job on time, and really did quality work. There were no issues with the paint job and I know it will last because I watched all the prep work they did, power wash, scrap, two coats of paint. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him if you’re looking for quality work.

Tim Kluge painted my living room and master bedroom. He was meticulous, professional and has great attention to detail. Tim is also very friendly and I would, and will recommend him highly to anyone who wants a top quality painting project completed.

Oness was fantastic! He was able to get our living room painted when we needed it. I felt comfortable leaving him alone in the house while I was at work. He was very detailed in the job and we are very pleased with the paint job and patch job he completed! I would highly recommend Oness!!!!

Lenin is nothing short of amazing. He's a perfectionist as well. He painted the trim in my home and all of the doors. I cannot begin to thank him enough for the fantastic job he has done. I also truly enjoyed chatting and getting to know him. I would trust him with my life and would hire him again in a heartbeat and know that I will for any painting jobs that I might have.

This is the second time I have hired Lenin and it will not be the last. He again did a superior job in all regards (Painted an office and a bedroom). It was a fantastic job! I'm going to hire him again for two bathroom projects down the road!

We are very pleased with the work of Oness. He arrived on time, cleaned up when he left, and had very competitive pricing. We look forward to working with him on future paint jobs. I’ve recommended him to a couple of coworkers too.

We had Tanya in to paint our 3 children's bedrooms. She did a phenomenal job! She was very professional and was in constant communication with my various questions and concerns. We look forward to having Tanya back to help us with various other designs to our new home. :)

Ken painted the whole interior of our house and we were very pleased with the results. He was punctual, friendly and professional. His price was very reasonable. He worked quickly and neatly; he never left a mess. We would definitely use him again for future projects.

Good quality work. We appreciated his attention to detail, for example, removing cabinet doors to get to 3-inch wide strip of paint a little more easily. We also appreciated his willingness to go above and beyond, for example, replacing a door stopper, when he noticed it.
