I'm getting bids for my house right now. They are running between 20$ per hour for a young single man who works alone, to $45 per hour for an established company that has several crews and can get the work done quickly. All are licensed and insured and have good references.

I dont' remember how much we paid, but we had a guy do our living room and hallways and Man what a superior job he did. I'm a do it yourselfer, but he was so much better i think the only thing i dare paint myself anymore is a bathroom.

Interior or exterior?

We haven't had our whole house done but we've had different rooms done and it's run anywhere from $100.00 (I thought this was a HUGE bargain!) to $200.00 a room for "regular" rooms (bedrooms not great rooms with high ceilings)



answers from Tulsa on

I found a pro who had 5 crews and not enough work. Ours was 1800. He painted the entire house plus all cabinets and the exterior doors and trim for $2500 and it was the best job ever. I called him to repaint our bigger house and it was much higher.
He said he gave us a deal the first time because he broke even on the salaries and workers comp. If he had laid them off, he would be out money.
I found out they use a price per foot method sometimes. You could ask them for a free estimate.



answers from Pittsburgh on

I haven't used a professional ourselves, although we renovated our previous home and painted every room and ceiling in it. The contractor used a professional company for the stairs and new trim. It took us forever to do every room. If I was doing it over again, I would hire someone. Painting is very time consuming and messy. If I was doing one room at a time, perhaps 1-2 rooms a year, I would do it myself but not the whole house.
