How much will it cost to paint my house? House Painting on the Gold Coast
In this article we will look at the all important question of how much will it cost to paint my house?
First, let’s start by saying this is a bit like the old “how long is a piece of string”
There are so many variables in painting the interior or exterior of a home. A lot of the difference comes in the amount of prep work required. Just for example two houses sitting side by side. One could require two days more preparation work than the other. One might have mould or surface contaminants that need removing. Some may have plaster that needs extensive patching or replacing. Other houses may be fully furnished and others completely empty.
In any instance, none of this is a problem for experienced painters; it just requires more labor to bring it up to a standard.
Also, customer’s expectations vary a lot. Some just want a house to have a quick coat to tidy things up; others would like a complete renovation.
We often get asked if we can quote over the phone or give approximate prices. To you and us, doing this does no one any justice in the end.
At the end of the day painting the inside or outside of your home is the most cost effective way possible of making a huge difference. Virtually no other trade can make as big an impact as a painter and decorator for visual impact. Dollars for impact you can’t go past a paint job!
So, you still have no idea how much it will cost to paint your home and without looking at it neither do I.
I can give you some recent examples though of pricing circa to homes painted by us and other painters around the Gold Coast. Please note, these are just examples to give owners some kind of idea, not a quote. Prices will vary depending on size, preparation, amount of doors, windows, door frames etc.
