Painting cost calculator
How much will my interior & exterior painting project cost per square foot and in total?
Do the surfaces require repairs?
Any imperfections that affect the quality of the painted surface (big cracks, holes and rough areas) must be corrected before painting. This guarantees an impressive and professional-looking paint job.
Does the surface need extensive cleaning?
We include standard power washing into our estimates, free of charge. However, if surfaces have oil, grease or wax stains, or when power washing is not an option, special cleaning services may be required.
Number of paint coats
Two coats is the absolute minimum in most cases. However, there are situations where one coat is perfectly acceptable, which in most cases is when you maintain the same color and sheen and the surface is not heavily scuffed.
Quality of paint
Premium quality paints are durable, stain resistant and offer great longevity. Not only will the paint last longer, it is also easier to clean and less susceptible to damage, offering the most value for your money.
Type of paint
Both types of paint can protect your property and keep it looking great for a long time. “Smooth” just tends to be more economical, as textured paint doesn’t cover as much area per gallon as smooth paint.
Specialty paints needed?
Some surfaces require additional protection that standard coatings can’t provide. Specialty coatings are designed to provide a variety of benefits: easy cleaning, protection against scuffing, resistance to humidity, resistance to heat and antimicrobial protection.
We are able to work around your company schedule so there is no interference during your regular business hours. Painting after hours, weekends and on holidays ensures there are no disruptions to your normal flow of business.

There are many factors that influence the cost of a project. While two projects might seem similar in scope and size, they can actually be quite different – one more complex than the other, which will be reflected in the cost. Our thorough inspection will reveal whether the project is complex or standard/easy, providing us with the information we need to provide a highly accurate estimate.
