I would like to know how much it would cost to hire a professional painter in Edmonton? Either the cost per hour or per square foot is fine. I need to know the average prices to get a fair quote.

Unfortunately there is no average price. The only way to find out if you are paying to much is to get a few quotes. Anybody can say they are a painter and prices with vary a lot. The most important aspect is the quality and reputation of the company you hire. Check them out as best you can.

Going with cheapest price is a guarantee of the lowest quality. I would expect most professionals to be at least $20/hr, but you will be quoted by the job.

Hope this helps.

Painting is usually $1.50 per. sq. ft. of area to be painted. That will give you 1 coat of primer, and 2 coats of paint.

That is the average cost of painting.
