We recently went from being a custom residential painting company to also painting apartments (we have a college town nearby and there is a LOT of off campus student housing). These are often not well taken care of. Most also want brush and roll because of over spray. What would be a good price for a 4 bdrm 2 bath? Or a 5 bdrm, 4.5 bath that has three floors of living space? Thanks. Broomfield House Painting
- Go for neutral colors. Every person has their own color preferences, so there is no point in trying to impress with the trendiest hues of the current year. Instead, go for time tested, classic and neutral colors, such as beige, taupe, cream, shades of grey, off white. If you want to add more color on an accent wall, shades of blue, green, or warm earth tones always have a nice general appeal. Broomfield Home Painting

When the primer is dry, caulk all small joints (less than ¼-inch-wide) in the siding and trim. Most pros use siliconized acrylics—paint won't stick to straight silicones—but Guertin and O'Neil like the new, more expensive urethane acrylics for their greater flexibility and longevity. O'Neil stresses that it's shortsighted to skimp on caulk. "If the joint fails, you're back to square one." Guertin uses the lifetime rating as his quality guide. "I don't expect 35-year caulk will last 35 years, but it should last longer than a 15-year caulk." House Painting Broomfield CO

Steven and team did an outstanding job turning our home from one with chipped paint from multiple terrible painting jobs and gapping holes from woodpeckers to looking like a brand new home! The team replaced all damaged shingles, removed an old door and added shingles in its place to match the rest of the house, sanded down the old paint (over multiple days) and then painted beautifully. They also took some extra days to remove old wallpaper up our stairs and in our hallways, repaired the drywall and repainted. Every day the team was onsite and ready to work at the time we were told (and usually even early) and the project was wrapped up exactly when we were told, and surpassed all of our expectations. We will definitely be recommending Flying Colors to anyone and everyone in the future. Broomfield Home Painting

Miguel Tapia the owner was outstanding. He promptly followed up his initial proposal and we reach an agreed upon price. His crew was hardworking, neat and professional. I was impressed with their prep work as the took the old paint down to the wood base. They painted around numerous flower beds without disturbing anything. I was so impressed with their work, I had them repair and paint some wooden shingles on various areas of the siding of my house. Very pleased with the work and the cost.

Or, do I measure each room individually? Say for instance a room is 12 x 12 (width of the walls) x 8 (height of the walls) (384 sq. ft.) , is this the sq footage I charge by? I know I would need to plus and or minus for the doors and windows in the room and also add in the ceiling, but I just want to know would I charge for instance, 384 x $1.25 ? Do I increase the sq. footage when I add in trim, doors, and ceiling?
Hi Chandler my name is Kevin. I’ve been painting for quite some time now but the bidding thing is new to me. I did learn kind of a cool trick for bidding exterior jobs though. This guy I used to work for told me count the number of openings on the house ( windows, doors, garage doors etc.) take that number and multiply it by $250.00. After you get that figure add mark-up. thanks for all the tips in this article. very helpful. Feel free to e-mail me any helpful advice. Broomfield Home Painting

I think it best to measure walls and ceiling areas to be painted. Measuring the floor space only will not give you the actual wall square feet. A wall could be 8’. 10’ or more high. Measuring the floor only could cost you money. If I had a 10×10 x8 high room. Floor space is 100 sq feet but the wall would be 320 sq feet minus door, window and closet. Now if I had the same 10×10 room but 12 feet high. That would be 480 sq ft of wall minus window, door and closet. Using floor square feet of floor only would make your estimate inaccurate. I know some may disagree but that would be the correct way to measure a room for painting. Broomfield House Painting
hey there, i’ve been painting for years working for a guy who ripped us off at any given moment… but thats another story. anyway, long story short me and my friend are starting up our own business and have not done any estimating before. thanks so much for putting up this great info. i just have a question about where you say square footage. it says 1500 square feet you would charge 1800-3000. my question is, would that be total square footage of the house or wall sqaure footage? I just went to check out a house today that was 1900 square feet that had two bedrooms, two baths, 2 walk in closets and a laundry room and an electrical room with a open concept kitchen living area, with 12 foot ceilings throughout most of the house. so there is alot of walls is what im getting at. not looking for what you would estimate for the house, just wondering if you are taking the square footage of the entire house or the walls? hope to hear from you soon! and thanks again for all the info you already helped us with Broomfield House Painting

As to the quantity of paint, the rougher the surface the more paint is required. Other factors might include the type of paint itself. For detailed calculation square feet assessments are usually used. For this you need to find all lengths and widths and multiply them to get the complete number of square feet to be painted. To subtract the effect of spaces like we might want to remove a 17 square feet for each e.g. doors and windows. The other major contributor toward the estimate is labor. This is highly dependent upon the nature of work and skills of the labor. Typically an experienced labor will charge a high rate and thus will finish job quick and perfect but on the other hand he will cost more. If you are planning to hire a moderately experienced labor you might want to estimate the average time to complete the job by mocking the paint job and replicating the results. Adding additional time for the hard areas and obstacles while removing the time slot allocated to empty spaces like doors will give a better idea as to time. Multiply that with the standard rate and you will get the estimated labor cost. House Painting Broomfield CO
There’s no doubt about it: weather and time can take a toll on a house’s paint job. Sooner or later, most homeowners will need to tackle interior and exterior painting projects. The cost of painting a house will vary depending on many factors. If you have the time and energy, you can save money and paint a house yourself, and you just need to factor in the cost of paint and materials, as well as the value of your time.

Painting is one of the quickest and easiest ways to give your home's interior a facelift with dramatic results. Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that difficult. Home improvement stores offer samples that you can take home. With these samples, you can try a few colors in large swaths on your wall to see the how the paint interacts with the room's natural light. Compare it against design elements like pillows or furniture to see whether it will work with your overall décor.

In July of this year a ***** window screen was damaged and disposed while Prism House was painting our home. The owner agreed to replace the screen but they first tried making it themselves. Unfortunately however, this screen is so ill fitting and poorly made that it won't even stay in place without duck tape. The owner was made aware of the situation and agreed to order an exact replacement from *****. After no follow through by Prism House, I worked with ***** and then forwarded the order forms/information to them in earlier September. At this time, the owner said he would order the screen. No screen has been ordered and Prism House remains unresponsive. The second issue that I am looking to resolve is one of moisture bubbles that appeared on our side door - as soon as the exterior painting was considered complete. I have reached out the Prism House Painting repeatedly via phone, email and text message regarding both of these issues.…Read More
Prepping a house costs anywhere from $0.50 to $2.50 per square foot. This is almost always included in the total project price. However, the DIYer might negotiate some discounts for completing this work on their own. Be warned, proper prep is key to the quality and durability of the finish. If you do this work yourself, the contractor might no guarantee to finished product. House Painting Broomfield Colorado

Hi Paul, square footage is a big factor, but to ball-park a 4bd 2 bath in poor condition, it could be anywhere from $1.50 to $2 per sq foot with heavy prep. If we say it is 2,500 sq ft. a good price could be between $3,500 – $5,000. That can seem expensive to some people, but again, heavy prep work changes everything. It also depends if you are doing the FULL interior; Walls, Base-boards, doors, is it coverable in 1 coat etc.

Family Owned Operated. Last year we had the opportunity to do work for some of our repeat customers as well as some new ones. It was a very busy year, the weather played tricks on us, and the storms have thrown us off the schedule. Most customers that we did not get to were understanding and we’ll be taking care of them this year. We also had some last minute calls that we were not able to get to. It is very rare that we can accommodate a last minute project, thus I urge everyone who needs a... House Painting Broomfield CO

this site has been a real treasure of information for me . The best thing you did for me is cause me to awaken to the grand idea of subcontracting my work instead of doing it myself. I didnt know how i could ever save enough money for a van, equipment, insurance etc.etc. and not tomention my lack of experience . I love to paint but i’d much rather someone else more expereinced than me do it .What was I thinking ? House Painting Broomfield Colorado


Hey Chandler, we have a house 2565 sq ft with the old wood trim on windows and doors. Doors are solid dark wood. We would paint all walls and doors and trim and baseboards. We also would be painting the cabinets in the kitchen from wood to white. We are trying to determine a final all in labor cost + a timeframe to do the job. The trim is trim time is throwing us off a bit. And personally, thank you very much for your time and sacrifice on this blog you have helped many many people. House Painting Broomfield CO

Hi Kim, we’re glad you like the site. You’ve asked a really good question. We recommend keeping a consistent pricing structure no matter what the area. Some painting contractors will try to raise their price if the area is very affluent, but if you have a consistent estimating system, the pricing should take care of itself. More affluent areas usually have larger houses, so your pricing is already going to be higher when considering the job size. You shouldn’t price based on what the area is, but rather, what do you need to charge to make your target profit margin. House Painting Broomfield Colorado

It’s been a while but I know I can do the required hours to finish in two days completely, however did I mention I am the only crew for the job. So I tend to bid low and some of the quotes i have read from your posts seemed high, but I am interested in what you would bid and I am on board to give that bid to My client. What’s the worst they can say,,no? Better that than underestimate my time and skills. Signed interested in a sound bid. House Painting Broomfield Colorado
