How do I get an estimate to paint my house?

So, as you just read, that is quite a list of painting services we can offer you, and that list does not even cover everything. So we need to clearly understand what services you are looking for. When we are painting a home, we have several ways we can get an estimate to you:

  • On-site consultation
  • Estimate from prints or online listings such as Red Fin
  • texts or emails with room size and dimensions

What we need from you to give you a painting estimate

When you call us to get an estimate for painting your home, we will get some basic information;

  • Your contact information: We use this so we know who you are, so we can call you, and so we can send email confirmations of appointments and the estimate itself.
  • How you found us: if you came from a referral, we want to thank that person for referring us!
  • What are you looking to have painted? One room vs. a whole house is quite a difference in our prep work and on-site time to prepare that cost for you.
  • If you have special paint requests, such as no VOC.
  • Are there drywall repairs that need to be made?
  • Wallpaper removal?
  • When are you looking to have the work done?

What can I expect to pay for painting

Painting walls can cost from $1.10 per square foot to $5.00 per square foot (or more). If we are painting walls the same color where we can just apply one coat of paint, it will be the lower cost, whereas if we are painting ceilings, crown molding, window trim, windows, door frames, doors, repairing holes, caulking trim, filling nail holes, taking wood stained trim to white will be much higher.

An average 10×10 bedroom is about $589 with a gallon of paint for walls. This would include the following:

  • pole sanding walls
  • masking trim
  • covering floors and furniture
  • minor wall repairs
  • removing outlet and switch covers
  • 1 gallon of paint
  • Two coats of paint

With all of the variables…

It can be hard to just write up a blog to get you a number, I hope some of this help get you prepared to call your paint contractor to get a estimate, so you will have an idea of what to expect when you want to know How much will it cost to paint my house.
