Factors That Affect the Cost of Interior Painting

An estimator needs to know all the details about the house before giving an accurate interior painting cost, including the following factors:

  • the size of the house
  • whether the house occupied or empty
  • the amount of preparation required before painting
  • the house location (downtown, suburbs, etc.)
  • deadlines and time limitations
  • paint preferences and colour choices

As a rule, costs rise the longer it takes to paint an area. This is why it usually costs less to paint a new home that’s never been painted before. An empty home costs less to paint as there won’t be furniture to move and cover. It will help painters do their job faster and you’ll get a smaller bill. If you don’t live in the house, the painters will welcome the opportunity of flexible time when they can start work early or finish late if needed.

The type and amount of paints to be used affect the total cost as well. Painting products come in a wide range of prices and quality that enable you to choose those that best suit your budget.

The cost of painting a three-bedroom home in Vancouver

The prices mentioned below are for reference purposes only.

Let’s take as an example a hypothetical three-bedroom home with a single or double-storey frame. The home is new and you want it painted for the first time, or it needs to be repainted. First-time painting is usually less expensive because there are no old paint layers to be removed. Repainting naturally costs more since painters will put in more time and effort in removing the older paint first and applying fresh coats afterwards.

A 1250 square feet home is going to cost about $2,500 for applying fresh paint on the walls only. The cost to painting interior doors and trim will be added, bringing the total amount to roughly $3000 to $3,750.
