Hey fellas,

We are bidding a job to paint a long corridor. It's 350 feet long with 2 sides so 700 ln ft long or about 5700 square feet. No ceilings. I'm struggling with this one because I mostly do residential repaints. This is a repaint with little patch. Can you help me with a basic cost?

Colour change? What product are you wanting to use? How many days do you think it'll take?

Happy to help. Just figure out how long it will take, add up your materials, sprinkle on some overhead, and a dash of profit.

Color change yes. Currently they have 2 colors and both will change. I don't know how long it will take me. I feel stumped on it. It's a mandatory 2 coats so I'm expecting to purchase about 30 gallons to complete.

What is YOUR production rate per hour for two coats of paint on drywall?

Norma,

As you can see, the professionals here realize that pricing is not something readily communicated clearly on an internet forum. There are so many different variables we all encounter. Production rate, wages, profits, market, overhead, to name a few.

However, there is a very helpful thread here on PT that should help you price your jobs:

good luck
