Looking for painting quotes can be challenging and intimidating. It is important to look at multiple companies, and therefore, many different price ranges. Throughout this process, Detail Paint is here to help guide you.
Measure Your Space
Some painting quotes come in the form of an hourly rate coupled with paint costs. Comparatively, some painting companies provide quotes bases on an exact measurement of each wall and surface. In the end we believe simplicity is the best for our clients.
At Detail Paint we base our painting quotes off of the total floor plan square footage. Since you probably already know this measurement, it should be easy to add any additional details to get an accurate quote.
Count Doors and Frames
Although the square footage can give us an accurate estimate for walls, ceilings and trim we need to have some more information. Therefore, to get a proper price estimate you’ll have to count up doors, frames and also any extra bits to be painted.
Painting Quotes for Supplies
Are you using a special waterproof paint for kitchens and bath. Maybe you want to use premium Benjamin Moore Products. Do you want to drastically change the colour of your walls or trim? With this in mind, you will be able to get an accurate price quote. In the end, we only want our clients to be surprised with how good the job turns out.
Know Your Timeline
Painting quotes can be drastically effected by the time restraints the client has for the job. Are you moving out on a specific date? Do you have other work that needs to take place immediately after. To that end, each painting company will see how these factors are going to work with their own production schedule.
Does Quality Painting Matter?
If you are strict on attention to detail you may not want to go with the cheapest of the painting quotes. In this case you’ll need to talk to your potential painter and judge how they handle drywall repairs, drips and touch ups. The use of drop sheets along with proper prep work will determine how well the painting quality looks in the end.
Comparing Painting Quotes to Make a Final Decision
We strongly recommend to get at least three painting quotes. Choose a mix of companies from budget painters to professionally managed interior painting contractors. You will want to know the insurance and liability coverage of each painting company. In the end, don’t make price the biggest factor in your decision. After all, trust in the painter to complete the job up to your expectations is the most important.
