Plan on Hiring, consider the following when estimating the cost of a commercial painting job:
The size of the area (multiply the height by the length of each wall. Then, add the figures obtained to get the total square footage. You must also measure the areas you don’t need to paint, such as windows and doors, and subtract their total square footage from the total square footage of outside walls).
Determine the amount of paint needed (one gallon of paint covers about 400 square feet of even surface and 300 square feet of a textured surface).
Calculate the total cost for materials (good-quality exterior paint costs about $25 to $40 per gallon, add brushes, rollers, paint trays, and drop cloths).
Determine labor cost (consider getting more than one estimate, and remember cheap is not always better nor is expensive).
