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 have been painting for 7 summers as a side job with a school district. I have been asked to paint a friend's house and I don't want to over charge but it will be a lot of work. She is paying for all of the paint and supplies-----5 average sized rooms plus ceilings, ceilings in 3 additional small rooms, and all window and door frames. I need some advice!!!

"William and the entire Edge team were such a pleasure to work with. It was a joy to find craftsman who take their work seriously, listen to the homeowner, give fair prices, and leave your home better than they found it. I recommend William and the edge team without hesitation. They repaired all of the damaged wood around my homeâ s exterior and sanded and painted potion clean upAfter themselves immaculately. I cannot recommend Edge strongly enough and without hesitation, I would hire them again."
The average cost to paint the interior of a house or room is $1 to $3 per square foot.

Get free estimates from interior painters near you or view our cost guide below.
You might pay an additional $1 to $5 per square foot for optional repairs and updates. Consider having your molding, trim and baseboards checked while you have a professional in your home. This might be a good time to upgrade or repair any cracks, warps or other issues. Pros can usually touch up or replace these items for an affordable rate, and they may even package such fixups with your project.

Although painting a room sounds easy, it can be difficult for inexperienced individuals to coat a room evenly. Too much paint and bubbles start to form, while using too little paint can leave sections pale and off-color. Hiring a professional interior painter near you can eliminate these problems. Plus, a pro can offer color and paint type suggestions, ensure that paint doesn't get on your furniture and floor, and may be able to offer specialty finishes and patterns.

"We are very pleased. The bid was mid-range to low (compared to the others). This job was begun the very next day with a crew of 3 - 5. The work (paint, carpet, insulation, cleaning, deck wash and stain) was completed in 5 days - a very fast timeline!! The workers were polite, professional, cleaned all debris. I highly recommend Antonio and his business for any home repair needs. Blessings to them."
