Loc P. says, "I worked with Darwin from Chanelle Construction on a complete remodel of a new home purchase that needed a lot of work. Darwin and Patsy met with me to check out the property, discuss what I wanted to be done in the remodeling and provided quick and affordable estimate of the work. This includes everything from flooring (I chose tile), drywall, painting (inside & out), shower bathroom tiling, installing doors, and other details. The project was completed before the estimated date and I was very satisfied with their work, both in timelines and quality of craftsmanship. It was really easy to work with them and they even helped me pick up tile from Floor & Decor since I bought a lot and didn't have a truck. I have recommended them to others that I know for work and everyone has provided me great feedback. " Read more

Josh A. says, "The crew was fantastic, they were professional, respectful, they asked questions at the right time about the right stuff. They were fast, finishing earlier than expected. Scott and team were able to handle some last minute changes I wanted done which was nice. We had some concerns about getting enough communication prior to the start of painting, but Scott had it under control and I feel like the house turned out amazing. The pricing was realistic, the advice he gave was spot on. " Read more

Your Interior Painting questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to paint a house interior?

The cost to paint the interior of a house is $1 to $3 per square foot of floor space or $1,300 to $6,300 for an average-size home. The average cost to paint a room is $300 to $1,000, depending on the size and complexity. Prices increase when including the ceilings, baseboards, and trim.

Average Cost

  • Interior Door $50 – $200
  • 10×12 Room $300 – $800

Does interior painting add value to a house?

Interior painting is a cost-effective way to add value and boost home appeal. Interior painting has a 107% return on investment (ROI), while exterior painting has a 55% return on investment on average.

How often should you paint your walls or house interior?

Interior walls need painting every three to seven years on average, depending on the room type, traffic and condition, and previous paint job. Ceilings need painting every 7 to 10 years, and baseboards and trim need repainting every 2 to 4 years.

Signs interior walls need painting:

  • Paint is peeling, flaking, bubbling, cracking, faded, or chalky
  • There are stains and mold on the walls
  • The walls are damaged
  • The last paint job was longer than 7 years ago
  • You're tired of the current color
  • You're selling the home and want to increase the appeal

How long does it take to paint a room?

Painting a room takes two to six hours on average. The time it takes to paint a room depends on the prep work, primer requirements, room size, if ceilings need painting, number of coats, and clean up.

How long does it take to paint a house interior?

Painting an entire house interior takes two to six days on average. The time it takes to paint a house interior depends on the home size, painting team size, prep work, number of coats, and clean up.

Do you tip interior painters?

Interior house painters do not expect a tip. However, if they go above and beyond or spend more time than expected, a cold drink, hot lunch, or $10 to $20 tip is appreciated. Giving the painter a positive review on HomeGuide, Yelp, or Google is better than a tip.

How to find local interior painters?

Start by searching our list of professional interior painters, then compare reviews and costs. Next:

  • Get at least three free estimates in-person to compare.
  • Ask for recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Select companies that are licensed, bonded, and experienced.
  • Verify their insurance, worker’s compensation, and bond guarantees.
  • Read reviews and check out their previous work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask if they are part of their local chamber of commerce or any trade associations such as the Painting Contractors Association (PCA).
  • Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
  • Get a detailed estimate, contract, and warranty in writing before the work begins.
  • Avoid making large payments upfront. Come up with a payment schedule for work completed.

After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the best interior painters in your area.

What questions to ask interior house painters?

When hiring an interior painter, ask them the following questions:

  • How long have you been a painting contractor?
  • How many similar projects have you painted?
  • Can I see your portfolio?
  • Can you provide me with a list of references?
  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Are you a member of the BBB, chamber of commerce, or any trade associations?
  • Are your painters' employees or subcontractors?
  • What qualities do you look for in subcontractors? Do they have professional training?
  • What quality of painting materials do you use?
  • What is your preparation process before painting?
  • How do you handle damages that happen on the job?
  • Who's the project manager?
  • What hours do you and your crew work?
  • How long will the project take?
  • What permits do I need, and will you obtain them?
  • How long is your warranty, and what does it cover?
  • How much is your cost estimate?
  • Can you provide me a written and signed contract with a breakdown of all costs?
  • What is the structure of the payment agreements?
  • Are financing options available?
  • What do I need to provide to get started?

Adan C.
Very reliable, honest, hard working. Highly recommended. He helped me to remodel my house: Wall demolition, pluming, electricity, installed new windows and patio doors, etc, etc!

Borja’s Flooring is exceptional! Without a doubt, Paul and his Borja Flooring team is top class: speed of service, personal customer service, affordable pricing, and quality flooring! Not only is their service prompt, work high-quality, and craftsmanship second to none, Paul’s personal customer service skills makes him the greatest choice for your flooring needs. Paul was able to walk me through the process of choosing what type of floor would serve me best, how long the process would take, and how best to choose the correct colors based on grain direction, floor size, etc based on my specific interior. He also was able to quickly get a quote to me and work with me for what scope of work would be best for me and my budget. Paul stops at nothing to ensure that you’re satisfied with your installation. He sends picture updates of the work, does status checks to ensure it’s looking good so far for you, and responds quickly to any of your questions. He is also connected to other quality service professionals and was able to refer me to other work I needed around my home like painting. The results speak floor themselves! I love my new carpet free transformed home with squeak free stairs and beautiful 2nd floor! Overall, I couldn’t be happier. The flooring is beautiful, solid and squeak free. The service was fantastic, the price was affordable, and Paul is excellent to work with. A+ across the board.

From day one, The Handy Helper did amazing work on multiple jobs at our house. From remodeling bathrooms to difficult reconstruction of structural defective areas we could not have been more pleased with the meticulous high quality aspects of the completed work. We experienced only super friendly, honest, positive and creative professionalism. As we proceeded with much of the work, we were guided constructively and always given feedback and ideas that made us comfortable and confident to proceed. In summary, The Handy Helper provided solutions to problems that were well above and beyond the scope of work planned. We would not hesitate to use the services again, and highly recommend for any project.

Wonderful job! Worth every penny. Vanguard painters were great at accommodating our time frame needs as we were moving in before Christmas. Despite some hiccups that were no fault of their own, they got the job done fast and in high quality.
