Generally speaking, new construction painting prices are lower than the cost of repainting a house that is already built and decorated. New construction paint jobs include less prep work and cleanup for both interior and exterior jobs. Painters on new construction start their work after any drywall, plumbing, or electrical work, but before anything else is in the home. This means you will not have to worry about any carpet or flooring. Plus, there won’t be any cabinetry, furniture, or lighting fixtures in the way either.
*Prices vary depending on location, the quality of paint used, and the project's size and difficulty.
