Size. The more area there is to paint the more expensive it’ll be and the less there is the less expensive it is. It comes down to time, labor, and materials. Two-story areas need special equipment to reach, and if our team needs to get on ladders we pay them for the extra risk.
- This also includes accessibility. If it’s hard for us to get our equipment in and set up it’ll add to time and labor, which increases cost.
Project scope. Different areas of your home’s interior, like kitchens vs bedrooms vs two-story foyers, can have different costs. It also depends on the amount. One room vs an entire interior has a different cost.
Color. If you just want us to refresh the same color, that’s easy. Interior painting costs go up if you want us to paint over a stain or use a different color. It takes more materials and a slightly different process, adding to time and labor too.
Damages. Sometimes we find damages that need fixing before or during a project. It’s mostly nicks and dings and nail holes, though sometimes we find water damage and wood rot. We like to fix them before we paint so your walls look better and the paint lasts longer.
- Cracking or peeling paint counts as damage. We need to scrape it off before we paint or it’ll lower the lifespan of the new paint. This increases time and labor and thus cost.
Paint quality. We prefer higher quality paints because they look better for longer. This means you won’t have to spend money hiring painters to walk around your house as quickly. Lower quality paints are cheaper upfront.
