How To Use An Interior Painting Cost Calculator
Do interior painting cost calculators exist? Yes they do. You will find them online by searching with your favorite search engine. It is important that you know what to expect with these calculators and how to use them properly to get the best results.
What is included in the Interior Painting Calculator?
Well they can vary, but below is what you would expect to find with a typical interior painting cost calculator:
The surface area to be painted
Here you will need to specify the surface area of your room or rooms that require painting. Most calculators will want you to enter this in square feet. You need to measure the surface area of walls and ceilings as accurately as you can here.
How many doors require painting?
This is usually included in the calculator. Just count up the number of doors that you want painting and enter the number into the appropriate box.
How many windows require painting?
This is a question often used with interior painting calculators. It is a simple matter of counting the number of windows that need painting and entering the number in the input box.
The type of painting project
Costs will vary depending upon the project that you have in mind. If you have a newly constructed home, then the cost for interior painting will be different to an existing home painting project. Normally there is a drop down box where you can choose between the two types of project.
How many floors or storeys?
If your home is multi storey then this is obviously going to cost more to paint than a single storey home. Choose between a single storey or multi storey option, or you will have to enter in the number of storeys.
What wall colors do you require?
How many colors are you looking for per room? Are the colors light or dark? Do you want to go with one color per room or two colors per room? You will need to specify your choice to receive an accurate estimate for interior painting.
What type of ceilings do you have?
If you want to have ceilings painted then you will need to specify the type that you have. This is normally a choice between standard ceilings and “vaulted” or “cathedral” style ceilings. If you do not want any ceilings painted then there should be an option to choose this as well.
Are there moldings to be painted?
The painting of moldings takes more time and is more expensive. This is a simple yes or no answer.
What region of the USA do you live in?
Because professional interior painting prices vary per region, most calculators will ask you to enter the region of the United States that you live in.
Other possible questions
There may be other questions asked with an interior painting calculator. These could be whether walls need repairing or not, whether the painting contractor has to move any furniture and whether or not wallpaper needs removing.
After entering the required details you will receive a low end, mid range and high end price for your interior painting project.
Other Types of Interior Painting Calculator
The information above relates to an entire home interior painting project. If your requirement is the painting of a single room (or even a few rooms) then look for a room painting calculator online. It is also possible to find exterior painting cost calculators for the outside of your home.
You must treat the prices that you get from an interior painting cost calculator as a rough estimate. For a proper quotation contact a professional painting company such as Pristine Decors Inc.
