Trying to estimate how mush paint I need for 2 coats in my basement.
Just so I'm clear, an 800sqft room would need roughly 5 cans of paint for 2 coats?!?
It would be between 4 and 5 gallons, unless the space is broken up into rooms then it would be more. Though you can stretch out the paint if you use a 13 mm micro-fibre roller sleeve, instead of the usual synthetic type. It will cost just a bit more and it rolls the paint on smoother as well. Looks better and less effort. You can get them at Home Depot or any paint store. Also, using a quality paint helps, at least a mid grade in a well known brand.
Hope this is helpful. Happy painting!
