If you choose to tackle the interior painting project yourself there are a few things to consider. The following breakdown should help you decide the costs of doing it yourself versus hiring a professional painter.
It is true that you have invested a lot to make your home valuable, but to ensure that its value keeps rising, you need to keep its exterior looking fresh and sharp. An impressive exterior will create a good first impression on visitors and home buyers, which means higher resale value. .
After Ruben's work. AMAZING!!!! Very professional A+++++ work. Made sure that everything around my kitchen was taken care of
This isn’t a highly-paid profession, but on the other hand, you don’t even need a high school diploma. An average wage of $16.92 per hour isn’t too bad for a position that requires so little to get started.
Extreme heat could accelerate the paint to dry faster than it should, which could lead to not-so-ideal finish. This means clumps of paints and brush marks on your surfaces.
Another option is to completely remove the paint off your walls, though this is a much more costly project. Generally, the only time you need to remove old paint is if it is flaking, curling, or not properly adhering. Between removing the old paint and repainting, costs generally range from $16,500 to $35,000 for a 2,500 sq.ft. home.
Kelly Brothers did an incredible job with our interior paint job as well as stripping and staining some large indoor wood beams. The wood beams is something that other painters would not even attempt to do and Kelly Brothers did it really well. Their prices were better than the competition and we are very happy with the results.
An easy way to calculate the square footage of an average room is to measure the length and the height of the walls and multiply those two numbers together.
Average-sized townhouses cost between $4,813 and $13,750 to paint. A townhouse may have two or three floors and often sports a rather narrow width compared to traditional single-family homes. Painting the exterior of a two-story or three-story structure usually costs more because it takes extra effort to reach the top floors. Still, one of the perks of living in a townhouse is that the exterior only includes the front and the back since the sides are shared walls with other townhouses. Shared walls may offset the added labor cost required to paint the upper stories.

The next option was using oil based primer. That stuff is not fun to work with. The fumes are not fun to work around (be sure to open windows!), and you can’t wash it off without using more chemicals. Fortunately somebody suggested we try bleaching the stains, which sounded a bit more feasible and manageable. So we tried it. Dawning coveralls and face masks, and armed with a pump garden sprayer filled with diluted bleach (mostly water with a couple capfuls of bleach), we attacked the stains. After a couple spray downs, the yellow started to disappear! For a couple of days, we misted the ceiling, waited a couple hours and repeated. Most stains were taken care of, the rest were dissolved enough to prime over.
For many, the concept of brushing the corners before or after rolling the walls can be confusing. However, you must remember to brush before rolling.
