How much should I charge to paint 2 16' exterior columns? They are just over a foot in diameter. My work typically is limited to interior, but they are a good customer and I don't want them being overcharged by some scheister.

Learn some math.

To get you surface area of the walls for the cylinder use area=circumference X height.

Then if you are painting the ceilings or floor use
Area=3.14xradius squared

Add the two areas together and divide by the spread rate on the can of paint... Round up if a decimal point.... This will get you your material quantity.

Then figure out how much labour it will take you to complete.

It all depends and how much tape and how many spray cans you are gonna need. ;)
