Considering its for two coats of paint on every surface with modest prep. Sundries cost is out of wack, but they lumped prep into it. Paint cost is retail as well for mid grade paint.

9.5 hrs to paint a 10x12 room? I guess they aren't counting lunch.lol. I can do two coats on ceiling and walls in a small to average size bedroom in a day but till you you throw all the furniture around putting two coats on an entry door, two window and two closet doors is a lot. Whole room top to bottom is more like a day and a half.

Unless there is an unusual amount of furniture in the room I could paint a 10x12 two coats easily in 8 hrs.I have worked in houses that had so much furniture in every room there was no where to move it to.Can be a real pain.

A room a day I agree if it's empty, I don't like it when they know your coming over in a month and say "sorry i didn't have time to clean or I forgot you were coming, I add extra time to the estimate for this, if room is ready I deduct the moving fee, I also tell them anything expensive or priceless they need to move I am not responsible if it breaks nor do I want to be.

Typical home in my town is 2200 square feet.

2200 square feet$9,130.76
$13,700.46
I know regional factors apply, but that's a lot of cash just to get a repaint, unless it includes moving furniture, lots of sanding of trim, patching walls, etc., then it's reasonable.

Like all other pricing threads on PT, there's just no way to look at any of this as anything more than a guide.

That's what I will use it for is just a guide when leaving the job site on my ride home, yes alot of different factors but you can adjusted to your pricing. So far for just a quick price reference this is the easiest I have tried, not that I have tried many yet.

Thank you for your participation in PaintTalk.com. The site welcomes the exchanges of information that helps each contractor develop methods to price out an item or a job. That is, how to consider overhead, production rate, and all other influences that will affect pricing.

However, straight “how much should I charge” or even “how much do others charge” for an item or a job is strongly discouraged. We all have vastly different pricing structures based on our markets, pay scales, profits, overhead, and a myriad of other factors. Simply put, it is impossible for one contractor to tell another how much he or she should price any item or job.

Also, we must be sensitive to the possible legal issues (price fixing) when contractors share exact pricing amongst themselves.

For these reasons, this thread is now closed. Please read through Pricing, Estimating, and Success for some excellent help on how to price your work.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
