Painting costs will vary notably depending on your choice of painting, the cost of hiring a professional, or you paint the house yourself. Coating your home may seem like a simple job. However,  little can be thought of the expertise required, or the preparation demanded to achieve a high-quality paint job. 

How much does it cost to paint a house with Portos Paints?

How Much Paint do you Need Per Square Metre?

Let us do some calculations. Commonly, a litre of paint can coat six square metres.

To measure the entire area in square metres, identify your room dimensions. Assuming you’ve got a 6m long and 4m high wall.

Surface area (m²) = Length (m) x Height (m) 

Following the computation above, you’ll get:

6m x 4m = 24m² 

To calculate the number of litres you’ll need, divide the entire area, which is 24 square metres, by 6. this could assist you in deciding what size of paint you’ll need for your project.

Paint required = 24 / 6

= 4 litres of paint. 

For this instance, 2 litres of paint are going to be enough to hide the wall area. Say the value of paint per litre is around $14. Multiply the value of paint per litre, which is $14, by 2 litres. The paint cost would be $28.

Most coverings require two coats of paint to actualise quality finishes. You furthermore may need to count the number of doors and windows to colour to manage your expenses. Clearly define your requirements to make a reliable budget plan.

Note: Paint prices vary on your preferred kind of paint (e.g. oil-based), preferred brand of paint, and level of gloss or matte. Our professional painters are waiting to speak to you on your next painting project. 

What affects the cost of house painting?

There are various factors capable of influencing the cost of painting, ranging from the size of the surface area to the kind of paint needed. Portos Painting and Maintenance painters also consider:

  • the cost of preparing the surface to be painted
  • the richness of the paint (some shades may require multiple coats or extra treatment to get the desired results)
  • The length and height of your ceiling
  • Delivery time: the time required to complete the job and the number of labourers needed to complete it 
  • extra materials and equipment such as scaffolding and ladders to paint hard-to-reach areas.

What are the factors you need to consider before hiring a painter?

Before you hire a painter, here are a few considerations you should make to ensure you get the desired outcome. 

  • Is the Painter Licensed and Insured?: any John Doe painter without a license of insurance is just like sitting on gunpowder. The risks are too much you cannot afford it. 
  • Is the painter competent and trained?: Skilled painters can take your ideas and turn them into tangible results in little time, unlike inferior painters. Why take the risk of hiring them? Hire a skilled professional now. 
  • Check References and Past Work: The best way to find a painting contractor is consulting with people who’ve used them to know what other people are saying about what it is like to work with them. Online reviews are a great place to start. 
  • Years of Experience: Commercial painting requires more experience. You cannot afford to give it to a novice. 2 decades of experience means that we have managed all sizes of projects. 
  • Estimated Price: A reliable business will always provide a price estimate before starting to paint. You must know your pricing expectation.
