How to know if you’re being quoted a fair price by an interior painting company

If you’ve never hired interior painters before, you probably have no idea how much it would cost to paint your home. While you might be tempted to go with the least expensive option, it might mean you will not get the quality work you desire.

Here’s how you know how much it should cost to hire an interior painter in Vancouver:

  1. Shop around

    When you’ve never worked with an interior painter before, never go with the first estimate you get for a job. Instead, get at least three estimates. This will help to give you a better idea of industry pricing.

  2. Ask specific questions

    The work that a painter is planning to do might contribute to the discrepancies in pricing. On the cheaper end, you may find painters who will only apply a single coat of paint and do nothing more. On the more expensive end, you may find that the interior painters will properly prep the surfaces to be painted, apply 2 coats of high-quality paint, and even paint your trimmings, ceilings and doors in addition to your walls. Knowing exactly what you want and asking what the interior painters offer for the estimates they have provided will help you to determine a fair price.

  3. Consider supply and demand

    If you know you want to have your interior walls painted before the start of summer, you may want to consider booking from now as experienced interior painters are often booked months in advance. This may be one of the reasons for price discrepancies. Well-established interior painters whose jobs are booked months in advance will charge more while a newer painter who is not in high demand will offer lower prices to attract more customers. It is the rule of supply and demand. The discrepancies in pricing could even be attributed to the fact that a newer painter sometimes does not have a full understanding of how much work there is to be done. You could find that they quote you one price before they get started and then another when they discover the full scope of work.
