How To Compare Interior Painting Estimates

We’d love to give you an estimate on interior painting and/or cabinet painting. Call (303) 323-0005 to schedule a time for us to come to your home.

If you’re planning to get more than one estimate for your interior painting job, you can only make accurate comparisons if you can accurately compare identical (or very similar) scopes of work.

Below are tips on how to compare “apples to apples” for different interior paint companies.

Size And Complexity Of The Painting Job
A painting bid is based, in large part, on the size of the rooms that will be painted, as well as the complexity. Size makes sense – a 300 square-foot bedroom will take longer to paint than a 100 square-foot bedroom. But complexity and accessibility can factor in – for example, if the space hard to access and/or will require a lot of ladder work. Intricacy plays a role, too. For example, painting a French door doesn’t require a lot of paint, but it is labor intensive.

Type Of Paint
The price of interior paint can vary dramatically, depending on the finish. In general, paint gets more expensive as you move up the scale from flat to high gloss. These are the primary types of sheens for interior painting:

In addition, the cost of paint can vary dramatically across different brands of paint (e.g. Gidden, Behr, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, Ralph Lauren)

In your interior painting estimate, make sure that the type and brand of interior paint are specified.

Number Of Paint And Priming Coats
To ensure a high-quality paint job, depending on the color of paint that’s currently on your walls and the new paint color you’ve chosen, the project might require a coat of primer and/or multiple coats for adequate coverage.

In your interior painting estimate, make sure that the number of coats is specified.

Wall Repairs, Caulking, And More
Wall repairs and caulking can impact the cost of a paint job. In the walk-through for the painting estimate, point out any repairs that you know you want completed.

In your painting estimate, make sure that any wall repairs are identified and included in the estimate.

Warranty Or Guarantees For Your Interior Painting
What types of warranty or guarantees does the interior painting contractor offer?

In your painting estimate, make sure that you get any warranties or guarantees in writing.

Payment Terms For Your Interior Painting Project
Finally, find out when payment is due. Does the interior painter want partial or full payment upfront? When will the balance be due?

In your painting estimate, make sure that payment terms are clearly spelled out.
