How much should it cost to get our walls painted and most of the ceilings sprayed? Our house is 1053 sq ft. And actually one small room doesn't need to be painted.

It would cost some where around 1600$ with out paint. And maybe 450$ for paint thats just off the top of my head for paint because it depends on what brand of paint the painter buys.

A professional painter should charge between 0.45-0.75 pr/sqft... thats not including materials. TO determine if the painter is a professional ask how many rolls of painters tape he will need. if he says 0 he's most likely a pro

Hi Tegan,

A Professional painting Company wil come to do a free estimate for you,is always better to ask for referrals and to call them. Prices will be very different from one Company from another. The prices will depend on different factor like: condition of the walls,furniture to move and cover,maybe your House is empty.How many colors, accent walls etc. But average will be .50 for one coat on ceilings ..75 for two coats. And for walls it will be anything from 1.6 up to 1.9 paint included(it should be one of the best on The market).painters should remove electrical plates and light features.

I hope that helps.

Most reputable painting companies will charge anywhere between 2.50-3.50 a square foot for ceilings and walls, which would equate to $2500.00 to $3500.00 dollars.

We wish you the best with your paint job.

Why do you want to spray your ceilings? Are they stucco? If so, there are other options that are less.... intrusive.
