The first factor that comes in to pricing the interior of your house is the paint itself. You have paint, primer, and the finish of the paint.  Paint can range from $25 a gallon to $100 a gallon.  The number of gallons is determined by the number of coats your put on your walls. There is also ceiling, wall, trim. Rossi Painting will always put 3 coats of paint on your project. This will make sure your walls look great for years to come.

The process is the next factor.  This means how do you get ready and prep your space to paint the interior of your house.  This includes moving furniture, taping outlets, taping around all the trim, preparing your floor, patch and sand any imperfections on your walls and ceilings.  There is a lot of time invested in the prep process.  Here are Rossi Painting we spend 80% of our time prepping your house for painting, and 20% of our time painting your house.

Depending on the number of people that will be prepping and painting, you can paint the average house in 3-7 days.  The size of the house will also affect the number of days.  Each painting contractor will have different numbers of people to put on a project. Depending on the skill level, experience, amount of prep work, and time available, your project can take 3-7 days on average.

The most important factor that affects the price of painting a house is knowing what questions to ask your painter and the answers and information you receive.  Does your painter explain the entire process? Does your painter give you a detailed estimate and honors the price on the estimate?  Is your painter a licensed contractor?  How and how often does your painter communicate with you about your project? What other projects has your painter done in the area?  Finally, what is your painters warranty?
