Whether it's a web inquiry or I'm quoting a prospective clients home, the answer they just can't wait to hear is "how much will painting cost?".
Well, It depends. There can be massive differences. In conversation with one Client (Georgia), she had a range of quotes to Repaint the Exterior of her Victorian home. Prices ranged from $6,000, $15,000 all the way up to to $33,000! We got the Job, coming in at $16610 including GST.
So why the Huge Price differences?
I don't know. Under or over valuing labour and time I guess.
Over the years, we've worked out what we need to charge for painting to survive and what you guys are mostly happy to pay.
We have a pretty straightforward pricing structure based per lineal, square metres, floor area, how many of what, where, access, height, condition and coatings. It's then cross-checked against estimated time to complete and how much man power needed.
A quote takes about 15 - 30 minutes, we'll try to give you a quote on the day, which also explains what we'll do, what we'll use, what to expect, when to expect us and how long the job will take.
So what Prices can you expect?
Resene paints has two great guides for the trade (and the curious customer) "Average rates for Painting" and a "Pricing guide " . Although the guides are probably 10 years old and don't account for inflation, they'll show you painting charges and how painters should formulate rates to make a living.
Painting Price Guide
Eaves and Fascia only (Average Size Home) : $1500-$2000
Average Bungalow Brick Veneer or Rendered - $4000-$7000
Small Weatherboard or in Home in Very Good Condition: $7000 - $12000
Small Victorians depending on size and Condition :$12- $18,000
You can even hold onto your money for other things and pay the painting cost off fortnightly with up to 36 months Interest free payment options through Certegy Ezi pay.
A BIT OF BOASTING.
In October 2016 - Deas and Keegan's former Johnson St home was Bank valued. Believing they could get a better valuation they invested $13,200 into the painting of the home with us.
A week after completion, a $50,000 higher re-valuation was received.
The added visual appeal from a fresh paint job is incredible and obvious, but the substantial financial gains often go under the radar.
It really does make sense to invest in the painting of your home.
Larger Weatherboards to Mansions like the ones below $18-45,000
Good Condition Interior Repaints: $5000 - $10000
New Builds: $5000 - $15,000

When doing your researchyou may find ultra cheap estimates on Job posting Sites. The Prices are not realistic. Service Seeking.com estimates a Bedroom Repaint at $180. That would take at least One man One day that's $22.50 per hour which is less than the gross cost of a minimum wage retail assistant ($24.50) with no super, no tax, no insurance, no travel and no warranty, But if that's all you can afford at the time then by all means go for it :)
