Interior Painting Questions-

How do you determine how much paint you need for a room?

This is done by multiplying the length of each wall by its height and adding them together. In an office that is 10’ wide x 10’ length x 9’ high, this equals 360 square feet of wall space. In addition, you can subtract for windows and doors also. Sherwin Williams has a paint calculator that is handy to-HeLpful LINK:-) sherwin williams link 

How much will the paint cost?

Paint cost is determined on the grade of paint you go with. The higher the sheen paints cost more than the flatter paints. There is a low grade, mid grade, and high grade line of paint carried by most companies. The cost can vary between 15.00-60.00 dollars a gallon.

When choosing your contractor, look over the estimates carefully and compare apples to apples.  You don’t want to end up with a lemon!
