Your Painting questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

Painters charge $20 to $50 per hour or $1 to $6 per square foot, depending on the project size, complexity, and whether it's interior painting or exterior painting.

Cost to hire a painter near me

  • Interior Door $50 – $200
  • 10×12 Room $300 – $800
  • 10×12 Room Ceiling $150 – $300
  • 14×16 Master Bedroom $700 – $1,300
  • Bathroom $200 – $600
  •  Kitchen $200 – $600
  • Living Room $400 – $1,200
  • All Interior Walls $1,300 – $6,300
  • Whole House Interior $2,900 – $8,800
  • Whole House Exterior $1,800 – $5,000
  • New Construction $4,000 – $15,000

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.

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

A house exterior needs painting every five to ten years on average, depending on the location, climate, sun exposure, material, and condition. Wood siding needs repainting every 3 to 7 years, while fiber cement siding needs repainting every 10 to 15 years.

Signs a house exterior needs painting:

  • Paint is peeling, flaking, bubbling, cracking, faded, or chalky
  • There are exposed patches of wall
  • Stucco needs patching, or wood boards need replacing
  • The last paint job was longer than 10 years ago
  • You are selling the home and want to boost curb appeal

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.

An average-size house takes three to four days to paint with a professional team of three painters. A large three-story or 5+ bedroom house takes four to six days to paint the exterior on average. This time estimate includes prepping the house, painting, and cleaning up.

Painting services 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.

Start by searching our list of painters near you, 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 painting services in your area.

When hiring a local 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?

Miguel was willing to work with me regarding gutter cleaning and roof replacement. He is very professional, courteous, polite, and a caring person. He explained every thing in detail regarding both jobs (Done timely). I definitely recommend Miguel. Excellent Service.

Marcos, all by himself, cleared my whole yard of leafs and debris in less than half a day. I watched him work and was really astonished by his energy. On top of that, he only charged me less than half of what others had quoted for the job. I will have him come back next year to handle my lawn care needs. Great worker, highest recommendation.

Lucas HR did a excellent job installing a new fence in my house.

The crew did a neat, meticulous job in prepping and painting, and John’s expertise in trim repair is absolutely top notch. They worked for four full days, cleaning up my property every afternoon before they left and even bagged their trash and took it with them. Their attention to detail, punctuality and completely customer oriented attitude is, in my experience, almost non-existent these days.

They did everything I asked and the price was reasonable. However, the lack of tree climbing equipment (ropes and harnesses) caused alarm to us, fearing that the worker might sustain a fall with serious injury.

This was my first time having my yard landscape. I had several quotes and offers. Although, the quotes were very similar in price, there was just something about Jeremy. His manuersim and attentiveness stood above the rest. Even though, he was booked out 2-3wks, he kept in constant contact with me about my ideas. He never hesitated about my questions, and was always willing to give me ideas and suggestions. We always look for doctors to be professional in their field, but we also look (at least I do) for them to have bedside manners as well. Someone, who's willing to take care of you because they care and not because they're getting paid. Well, that's the type of character Jeremy Fisher possesses. His work is done from the heart, and it shows. I will definitely be reaching out to him, to complete my other projects, such as replacing my decking, beautifying my shutters, and my annual landscaping. My husband, is more of a critic than I am. He had absolutely nothing bad to say about our experience, and that says a lot. Again, we thank you and look forward to our future endeavors.
