You will have to consider the materials and paints to be used and of course, hiring a residential house painting professional is also a concern for your budget.

Consider the season

The season also plays a good role on how much you might spend for your home interior since it is actually cheaper to hire a painter during the winter than if you are hiring a painter in the summer. This is because there are more people looking for house painters during the summer because of the hot season than in the winter. So if you call a professional now, you can expect that the fee is lower as they are not servicing a lot of clients.

Your choice of materials

House painters will also consider the supplies you will need to prepare the cost estimate. You can get an idea of how much you should need to spend just by going to the store and doing a check of the supplies you will need. If you are hiring a painter expect that their prices for materials are lower than what you mostly find in stores since they purchase their materials at wholesale prices.

Estimated time

When making a cost estimate, you will also have to consider the days you want it done and the number of hours you think they will need to get the job done. Since you may not know exactly how long it will take them to finish a certain room as they are mostly paid by the hour, it is advisable to have the painters do the estimate themselves. Ask different painters about this since some shady house painters will tell you of a longer time estimate as they want to pay more.

Ask them how much they are charging for the labour and how many hours should they need to finish the job. Once you are able to compare, then you can get a rough estimate of how long it would really take them to finish the job.
