Hi
What could I expect to pay for paint the entire inside of a 1400 square foot house? Labor and materials. One story - no high ceilings.

Thanks!

We recently had our home painted, dining, foyer, kitchen, living room, stairwell, upstairs hall and game room plus crown moulding installed in dining room and it ran us around $2200. Good luck!

Why not do it yourself ? I always do much easier you can do a room at a time that way.

Well, does anyone have a good estimate of the exterior, while we're at it. Our neighbor just had his done for $2500. The guy replaced several boards and did some repair work on the chimney for that price. He took his time and it looks very nice.

Not everyone does a good job painting....We do most of the work on our house ourselves, and my husband does a good job painting, but after painting a few things myself, being as careful as can be, I've decided I stink at it and I'm not doing it anymore. No matter how much attention to detail I pay, I always screw it up. Fortunately my husband does a good job

I have to stick to the nail and hammer and sander...

My dads company does free estimates Good Day Enterprises. Its late or I would run this by him myself. If I am near a computer this weekend I will ask him and post what he says. Are you looking to do a texture as well or just paint?

Last year, we found a painter who charged $100 a room labor using rollers, we provided the paint. That was for only one coat of paint, so we still went behind him and touched up the bare spots. It was still worth it.

Thanks. Actually, I just had the house painted - did the same thing Aquajox did but was wondering afterwards if I paid too much. I paid a little more than Aquajox and I purchased the paint and many of the brushes and stuff. I also had to touch up afterward and there was more left over splatter than I expected.
The whole thing cost me about 900 dollars - labor and materials. If I could have gotten a complete professional job done for about 1500 dollars it would have been worth it to me to spend the extra money- rather than spending several hours going back over stuff and running back and forth getting my own paint mixed and waiting in lines at Lowes.

But if a 1400 square foot house is going to cost well over 2K, then maybe the 900 dollar price wasn't so bad??

I probably should have. I hired someone because I thought it was going to be done it one day (I had carpet installers coming). It ended up taking them 4 days. Do you think one person (me) could have done a 1400 SF house in 4 days?? Just wondering.

Here is a link to "Paint Estimator"

(on average, one bucket = 500 sq feet; you'll need that for the calculator)
