Josh, thank you for the painstaking detail you use to describe what we painters go through. Especially on a renovation project. Most are not this big but laying out what DIY’ers would be looking at before they start is quite eye opening…we have a painting business and find it helpful when homeowners have outside resources to gather information on… keep up the good work!

The average cost to paint the interior of a home is $2.20 per square foot. If you include walls, trim, and ceilings the cost per square foot is $3.80. If repairs are needed before painting, you’ll likely pay more. This assumes you hire a professional painter to do the job versus doing it yourself.
Note on homes built before 1978: Lead paint application was outlawed in 1978. If your home was built before 1978 and needs significant scraping prior to repainting, lead abatement might be required. A widely quoted cost from the US EPA is $8-$15 per square foot for lead abatement which shows just how expensive this can be. Those costs are not included in this estimate of exterior painting costs.

If you’re only unhappy with the paint color in a specific room, or if you’ve renovated a room, you may only need to have one room painted for the time being. With that said, if you’ve just moved into a new house, it’s best to have your entire space painted while it’s free of furniture. If you intend to sell your house, it can also be helpful to paint each room. That way, every part of your home will look fantastic. We can paint one room, several room, or every room in your house. You can trust us to handle any painting project, whether it’s large or small.
The simplest way to determine a room’s footage is to measure and sum the overall length of all the surfaces, then multiplying the total by the room’s height.
We had such a great experience with this company and team of painters! From the time of our appraisal to the time of walk-through everyone was articulate, professional, courteous and real. Our house was the center of attention in my neighborhood during the process...all my neighbors watched and praised the team for their detail in the preparation, the completed product and how the team worked so incredibly well together, a "well-oiled machine" as one neighbor put it. So impressed, one neighbor contracted with them on the spot to do some work for him! It was a pleasure working with this company from start to finish!
