I am starting my own painting business and am trying to get a rough idea how much to charge per square feet for interior walls. What would be a fair starting rate for prime and one coat,without materials and taxes?
Well, we charge $150 for a repaint and $225.00 for a custom room all avg of course. It also comes down to where you live, what do you have to pay your painters, do you want the job, can you do the job, do you need to bring in a special painter. So there is a lot to an estimate. You should find out the going rate in your town, call a few competitors and see what info you can find out.
its best to figure out how much time its going to take you to do the job. and how much paint..in our area.we do it both ways its about 35.00 dollars a hour. plus paint and misc thing you need. another way is to price it about 300. dollars a day. which includes labor and material..hope that helps
