This is one of the most common questions we are asked, Its tricky to estimate how much paint you need but lucky for you were going to give you some quick examples to help you get a better idea of how much paint you need for your home decorating. Most of our quotes are provided labour only, unless were asked to supply the paint and materials. Many commercial contracts and landlord jobs and some of our full house deals also ask us to include paint which is not a problem at all, this will make it easier for you by saving you time and sometimes a lot of stress. We usually bill the price of the paint separately. plus a 15% fee of the price of the paint. any materials supplied are asked for payment upfront on most jobs.
