Interior Residential Painting Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do you charge by room of the house?
We do not charge by the room. We charge by time and material. Therefore, if a normal sized bedroom takes one painter a full day to prep, paint, and clean up, the cost would be the day rate plus the material used. The larger projects with more than one room often will see the price per room is less than just doing one room at a time due to efficiencies gained.
How long would it take to paint a kitchen?
There are many factors that need to be considered when determining how long it takes to paint a kitchen. The most important factors include the following:
- Is there wallpaper on the walls?
- Has the kitchen previously been painted?
- How damaged are the walls?
- How high are the walls?
- Is the kitchen going to be the same color?
- Are you drastically changing the color of your kitchen?
On average, a kitchen that has been previously painted and has normal wear and tear to the substrate will take two experienced house painters a day to a day and a half to complete.
Is painting a good idea if I’m trying to sell my home?
We find many people paint the exterior and interior of their homes before selling them. Home sellers and real estate professionals have found that a freshly painted home is more enticing than one that is showing aged or damaged walls or paint.
Are there health concerns with interior house painting that I should know about?
Health concerns vary from person to person. If the smell of paint makes you nauseous it is best to use a low odor or Zero VOC paint.
