Pricing

This is a general overview of my pricing system to allow you to get an idea of what a price might be. The minimum price for any job is $45 if it's a simple job of 1 hour or less that doesn't require a pre-inspection. Multiple small (or similar) jobs done at the same time gets you better pricing.

Not everything I do is listed below. If what you want done isn't listed, just call me at (343) 264-4929.

With many of the big companies out there, the business owner does little or none of the actual work, which is normal because their job is to get the jobs and run the business, but I decided to stay a small business and be one of the workers myself. This means lower prices because I don't have to pay out as much to other workers.

*Number of coats required:
1 coat will suffice if repainting a room with a similar or darker color, same type of paint, no stains, and nothing that will bleed through. Stains or anything that will bleed through need proper preparation first. If you are changing colors, 2 coats are needed, (3 coats (1 primer and 2 paint) recommended if changing from dark to light). To paint latex over oil, a special primer must be applied first, then 1 coat for a similar color, or 2 coats for a different color. Any patchwork, other than very small holes or cracks, requires priming first.
