I would like to get some input on the costs associated with some painting. I was told to paint a small 6' x 3' powder room including the ceiling would cost $200 for labour. To paint a 7.5' x 13' laundry room and the ceiling plus 3 coats of paint on the trim and three closet doors was quoted as $470.00 for the labour. The material cost was 225.00. Does this seem unreasonable. Also to paint a small 41 sq. ft. foot bulkhead in our living room was quoted at $125.00.
I appreciate all the input.
Considering how busy it is in the season I don't see those prices being unreasonable. Maybe a tad on the higher side but still quite fair. Don't know if you'd actually need 3 coats in a room though, unless you're doing a major colour change.
Thanks for the response. The three coats are only on the trim. The color on the trim was being changed from a darker color to white.
Yes he was recommended by friends and does good work. I haven't gotten any other quotes as of yet. Just wanted to get a ball park idea of what this type of job goes for? Is there a per square foot rate that is typical?
