Before we start, you will have to choose your color. If you would like to replicate a color already on your wall, you can use an old can of paint for reference, or you can take a chip to the paint store. We can help you identify the color, the finish, and type of paint with our visualizer tools, and we also offer a Color Consulting Service if you need help coming to a decision.
the price can always be adjusted based on on or off season, amount of colors to be used. A job like this can be done in 2 days and much quicker with a helper. I charge a bit more than others just because its quality work done professionally. Theres others that charge more than this just because they can on the on season and most people dont get a 2nd bid...
Wow, I learned so much. Now I know why I got the cost quote I got to do the job right. Being a cook I get it... because you can't just make a meatloaf... you can't just paint a room. You better know what you are doing and the cost of a GREAT job is like the right cut of meat. So, you can look at th finished product and smile & enjoy... great job !!
So why not just paint your own home. I'm not a painter, so my wife and I take our time, buying the paint and supplies, and doing our own painting. Yes, we need to tape, and it's not perfect, but we get the satisfaction of seeing our completed work. Get the supplies, sliders for your furniture, and patience and go for it. That way YOU have control over the entire project.
This article is outdated. Deep based colors were an increase in price back in the 90's. Most stores have a standard price for all colors now. The problems the author are citing are outdated and rarely happen. This is the 2nd time I've seen this article being emailed out, it's irresponsible of angies list to keep sending out this poorly written and inaccurate article.

Picking exterior house paint colors is a lot different than picking a color for a shirt or a car. It may help to drive around to observe colors that other homeowners have combined on homes that are of similar size and design as yours. There are also online resources that provide homeowners with the ability to create virtual makeovers of their home by combining colors together through their software programs as well.
IF the average cost is $1700 to paint an interior, then that means the cost of paint is approx. $200 (12% of the job). Or better said 5 gallons of paint (if the average cost is $40 retail). The average room takes 1.5 gallons which will cover 3 average rooms. Doesn't sound to average to anyone with knowledge of this industry or a average house. You are misleading consumers and should do a better job in your research. No wonder so pay people think prices to get work done by professionals is high. Its not high, its actually average which is more like $3700.
