I have two rooms to paint. One bedroom with closet is 10.5'X13' which will all be white. A family room 26'X12.4. The walls in the family room is darker than the ceiling. Not sure if that makes a difference. I'm supplying the paint. I'm in Fort Erie area. Just need to know how to figure out what a decent price is to paint two rooms?

Thank you,

Hi jacqualine,

Depends on how much wall repair must be done. But based on what you said two coats of paint and minor repairs. Would cost you about 700$

With approximately 1,114.2 wall sq/ft it would be .85 per sq/ft totalling: $947.07 and that would include 2 coats, minor repair as well as ensuring all floors and furniture are properly covered and protected. That's based on the market value of the GTA and you may find your area has a different market price.

Good luck on your search.

That ceiling may be an issue. Is it a spray stucco, or oil that needs some Fresh Start sealer-primer first? What about trim? Oil too? South of $1,000. is possible, but get an experienced painter in to have a look first. Did you get a good quality paint, or will they struggle with a difficult product? Clients sometimes will under estimate the job because of missed details, but if you catch your painter in a good mood after lunch, well ...

Good Luck Jacqualine!

Hi Jaqueline,

I agree with the previous replies. Anywhere from $700-$900 would be a reasonable price. Obviously there are variables that will determine where you fall in that range.

Sorry, I would like to respond to your request but I live in the west so our costs are different then down east. It wouldn't be fair to other contractors that are local to you to give my input.

All the best.
