Paint is one of the most popular finishing materials used for walls, ceilings, decks, doors, window frames, crown moldings and other components of a building. Be it a house, an apartment, a condo or a commercial space, a well-done paint job can really tie your space together. It also adds value to a property and ensures a more enjoyable living experience.
That being said, it is critically important to hire the right painting professionals to do the job. After all, you are going to invest a significant amount of money and time into it, so you want to be sure that the right pros get it done on time, on budget and exactly to your satisfaction.
To make the job easier for you, we have brought together this comprehensive guide regarding painting. This guide details the important aspects of painting – costs involved, good trade practices and helpful tips on hiring the right pros.
Cost of Painting a House
The cost of painting a home depends on a number of factors. These include the size of the home, the number of rooms, the height and other dimensions of the walls to be painted, the nature of the surfaces to be painted and so on.
The costs also vary wildly from one contractor to another. That being so, here is a general estimate of the costs involved in having your Vancouver home painted.
Costs for a 3-bedroom home
Let’s consider a hypothetical home that has 3 bedrooms in a single or double-storey setting. You want to have the home painted for the first time assuming that it’s new, or you want to have it repainted. A fresh paint typically costs less because the older layers do not need to be removed. A repaint costs more as more labour and effort is involved in first removing the older paint and applying fresh coats over it.
Size: 1250 square feet
For a fresh paint job, a home this size is going to incur you around $2,500 for a paint job on the walls only. Add the cost to paint interior doors and trim, and the total bill reaches around around $3000 to $3,750
If you are looking for a repair and repaint of the walls of the same home, the costs rise to somewhere between $2,500 and $3500. Add doors and trim-brush or spray-paint areas, and the estimated costs rise to around $3,000 to $4,500.
Size: 2000 square foot
For a 3-storey house that is 2000 square foot in space, you can have the walls of the bedrooms, stairways, hallways, bathrooms and powder room painted for around $5,750.
Add the doors, window frames, ceilings and baseboards, and the cost rises to around $7,500. This is the price of having two coats of paint applied to all these areas and surfaces.
In general, the more time it takes to paint an area, the greater are the costs you will incur. For this reason, it generally costs less to have a new home painted which hasn’t been painted before. If the home is not furnished, that will also help painters to do their job quickly and bill you less.
The quality and variety of paints used also affects the overall cost. Painting products vary significantly in terms of their price and quality, so you can choose ones that fit well within your budget.
How to hire the right painting company?
Vancouver is home to a huge number of painting companies. You may have many of them in your immediate neighbourhood, so it can be a difficult job to determine which company to hire. At the same time, you want to make the right decision. The paint job will likely incur a sizable bill and you want to make sure your money is spent right.
To make the job easier for you, here are some telltale signs of a good painting contractor.
Preliminary Consultation: Every good painting contractor offers a preliminary consultation. During this consultation, the professionals take an in-person look at your home. You tell them about the areas to be painted and they give you suitable recommendations. This is also the time when you can ask the pros about any other questions you might have. For instance, you may ask them about the availability of eco-friendly painting materials.
Work Proposal: The work proposal is an expanded form of a price quote. In this, a painting contractor provides you the estimated costs and timeline for the job. You are also provided details about the colours to be used in the paint job as well as the insurance and warranty details of a company. The proposal is one of the most important steps when you are considering a paint job. A quality proposal also stands apart a good painting contractor from the rest.
Timely Delivery: Once you have the work proposal and accept it, a quality contractor starts the paint job at the agreed time. Workers arrive at your home, sign in on the job and paint different areas of your home. A good contractor nearly always starts the paint job at the right time and completes it within the agreed timeline.
Customer Service: For a professional contractor, customer satisfaction matters. This is why the right pros will keep you in the loop throughout the painting process, from start to finish. You will be consulted about which rooms or areas to paint first, any concerns about the paint job, details about the security of the home and so on. This ensures that you are informed about the progress of the painters and have your concerned addressed.
