Size. Larger homes usually need more time, labor, and materials. Two-story rooms, like some foyers, require special equipment like scaffolding. 

What we’ll be painting. Normal rooms don’t add to the cost, but irregularly shaped ones may. They can take more or less time and material. Kitchens and bathrooms may cost differently depending on how complex they are to paint.

Damages. It’s not uncommon to find damages before or during a project. Some main ones include water damage, nicks, and wood damage. If we see any, we’ll make sure to talk to you before starting or continuing work.

Paint quality. Better paint tends to look better for longer. They do cost more, but you’ll love the look more for longer than if you choose lower-quality paint.

Color change. Changing colors take more materials, especially if you use different colors for different rooms.
