The decision to paint the house is firm. This year does not happen! And the first question that assails us is how much it will cost us … We consult the experts to give us an approximate budget.
1.HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PAINT PER M2?
According to Yago Escrivá, from the specialized platform Clinton, “the price ranges between € 4.60 and € 5.20 / m2, depending on the condition of the wall and whether there is a shading change from dim to light. Due to humidity or other circumstances, the price ranges between € 10-12 / m2 “.
2.HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PAINT THE DOORS?
Again depending on their condition and the number of doors, it ranges between € 40 and € 100 / unit. The state in which they are is important since the more worn, the more paint they consume, and the more layers you give. And lacquer them? Later, we give you this information.
3.HOW MUCH DOES THE BUDGET VARY WITH OR WITHOUT A PAINTER?
Without a painter, it would simply be the price of the paint and materials, such as brushes, bucket, masking tap,e and floor covering paper. Therefore it varies a lot since the price of said material does not usually exceed 10% -20% of the budget.
4.DOES THE FINAL PRICE DIFFER A LOT ACCORDING TO THE TYPE OF PAINT?
Taking into account that the price of the material does not usually exceed 20% of the budget. However, there is a price difference between the different types of paint, the effect on the final budget is usually not decisive.
5.ALL WHITE OR COLORED?
As Yago Escrivà de Clintu says, “the price difference is mainly marked by the change in tone of the wall compared to the one you want to apply. If we are talking about a floor painted in bright colors and you want everything in white, the budget increases since it will be necessary to give more layers. It supposes more material and more hours of labor since the same surface will have to be painted more times (twice approx.) “.
6.I HAVE GOTELÉ: HOW MUCH WILL IT COST ME TO REMOVE IT?
The price of scratching the gotelé ranges between € 10-12 / m2. This includes the removal of the gotelé, the smoothing, but not the painting. Later we will give you the total price of what it would cost to remove this finish from a floor of about 90 m2 and, in addition, to paint it.
7.IRREGULAR WALLS: HOW MUCH WILL IT COST ME TO SMOOTH THEM?
If they have bulged or the line of fall of the wall is not totally vertical, the procedure is the same as when it is gotelé, so the cost is the same, between € 10 and € 12 / m2. There is also spot smoothing, where a high-powered spotlight is used to perform more precise work. This type of straightening is around € 16 / m2.
8.I HAVE MOLDINGS: IS IT A PLUS?
“It depends on the service; if the moldings are on an old floor that needs a facelift, no increase is usually applied. However, if it requires special attention and care, it does entail an increase to be assessed by the painter, since it requires more time, “says Yago Escrivá de Clinton.
When we decide to put a review on the house’s walls, the question always arises: how much will it cost me to paint? The answer depends on several factors that can modify the final price. Should consider factors, for example,
existing wall colors
the state of the walls
if there are cracks, fissures,s or dampness
The price also varies a lot according to the geographical area. According to Andreu Guardi, a color expert at the paint firm Jotun, “the price per square meter of white ranges between € 2.5 and € 4.5 and the color price between € 3.5 and € 6” depending on the location.
