The cost does vary, average would be from $1.00 to $1.25 per sq ft includes labour, 2 coats of paint, materials and minor patching like nail holes. Extensive patching and sanding of walls, or a coat of primer would be outside these prices. Some independent painters might be less and some companies might charge more. Also, can vary with the quality of paint, workmanship and guarantee.

We charge $1.10 sq ft using mid grade Benjamin Moore paint, with high quality workmanship and guarantee our work.

$1 a square foot is the industry standard for a single coat same colour. Average price will be in the $2 a square foot range with a good quality paint like Benjamin Moore Regal Select or Aura. With these product we give a 5 year warranty. Note, that if you go through a reputable mainstream painting company with high rankings on various websites such as TrustedPros, Homestars, Houzz and Google, that this is what you can expect to pay and it will be higher for some of the gimmick companies and franchises such as Wow-1-day. We actually have a interior painting estimator on our website that helps people get a ball park price. Our rates start at .90 a square foot for single coat, same colour. Old question, but can help others.
