How much does interior painting cost?


Can we be honest with each other? Nobody likes a mystery with their money.

I think we can agree that Transparency is best in almost every situation save for a select few like lettuce. If the lettuce is transparent it is probably a bit off. The normal culprit for me is putting it too close to where the cool air is pumped in.

That’s enough fun and games though. That is not why you are here. You want to know what your paint job is going to cost. That is what we are going to try and help with here.

Painting your home or workplace beautifies and protects your ceilings, walls & trim. Changing colors will be the easiest and most cost-effective way to transform your space. There are many sheens and quality levels of paint to choose from. We are here to help you make the right choices for each area being painted.

Interior painting projects can be difficult to price due to the factors that determine the cost: the type of surfaces being painted, the amount of prep work and/or patching, the heights and access to the areas, the level of prep work you want, sprayed vs brushed finish and the qualities of paints used. Because there are so many variables, it’s tough to give an exact quote over the phone. We always recommend doing an on-site visit so we can give you the most accurate pricing.
