Generally speaking, if the trim is white and just needs to be refreshed, baseboard, window and door trim, you would be looking in the 600-900 range, paint included. If you wants doors, or the trim is being painted a different colour from white, cost would be higher.
Costs vary province to province and typically charged out by linear foot.
Take measurements and base it on $0.50-$0.85 / lf.
As mentioned, changing the color and painting doors will change the linear foot cost dramatically.
Dave: Hafta agree with Derek from Mod-Art Renovation Ent re: quote by measure of linear feet.
That said, I disagee with his sum. level of difficulty here is that the walls are not to be painted so cutting in is to be precise. Level of difficulty increases price. There's question if trim is oil based as is. :., needs to be converted to a have a waterbased application made. There is a paint great for this-- an oil in water brand; brushes washed. Low odour. Prep in scuff sand. taping; moving furniture. Looking at a price approximately $2400 - $2800.00
Theres different factors, is there crown molding? Chair rail? What type of trim is it? Photos would help with a decision. Square footage is the easiest way to get an accurate estimate. Is there a color change involved? Is there damage that needs fixing? Any caulking involved? Lots to think about to start.
Everyone here is right. We simply lack the info to make a informed number.
I would use an aprox number of $.60 a Linear Foot for a VERY ROUGH Budgeting Number.
Get a few quality quotes, remember the way to high, and way too low companies are to be avoided.
A great finisher is worth their weight in gold.
Good Luck on Your project,
