Wall Square Footage and Floor Square Footage For Painting

Surprisingly, many contractors actually use floor square footage to create their “base bid’ for interiors. This method works because most homes have a pretty standard layout, meaning that most 2100 square foot homes will have about the same wall square footage when its all tallied up. But we still need to know that wall space for each room , or color, for paint purchasing.

This paint calculator makes it super easy to find out the exact all space for any room.

Interior Painting Cost Per Square Foot

Dont forget , each company has its own overhead situation. More employees equals more insurance , more paid time off and things like that. Advertising costs really increase a companies overhead , therefore they will charge more per square foot.

Liberty Painting really is a local family owned company. We have a somewhat low overhead , compared to bigger companies. We usually only have 2 or 3 employees outside of the owners. We have found that this keeps our quality of work substantially higher in relation to the pricing.
