Painting Pricing Guides

Do some research on typical prices for painters before listing your job.

  • Painting price: Costs for painting your home

    Painting price: Costs for painting your home

    When hiring a quality painter, paint and supplies make up about 15-25% of the cost, while the rest goes towards labour. Painting is very labour intensive and requires patience and care - so you won't want to hire just any person who can hold a brush! How much does it cost?
