At Paint Works one of the most common questions we get asked is “How long does it take to paint the interior of my house?”. Painting your house’s interior is an effective way to preserve its condition and enhance its appearance. The right paint colour combination can make or break the ambiance of your abode. The painting work is relatively easy and can be accomplished quickly as long as you observe the necessary steps in preparing and painting the area.
The time needed to paint the interior of a house is determined by several factors, including how big the house is, how many will perform the work, work organization and the intricacy of work. These are some of the top factors to take into account in estimating how long the painting work will take.
Simple wall and ceiling painting with a size of 1,900 square feet under minimum preparation involved can be done in about five days, with three painters doing the job. If only the windows, mouldings, and doors are to be painted, you may spend three days to complete it.
However, it doesn’t mean that painting jobs can’t be done much faster. Any house interior can be painted within two to three days with the right number of people working and, of course, the right painting tools. Meanwhile, high-end paint jobs are more time consuming and generally takes longer due to the intricacy of the work it entails.
Painting is considered as among the easiest house renovation projects, which can be done easily by property owners during their extra time. In a standard room with the size of 12’ x 12’, its ceiling and walls can be painted in just 5 to 6 hours, assuming that the surfaces are in good condition and will need only two coats of paint while windows, baseboards, and doors will require 2 to 3 hours painting.
Doing the painting project yourself is another way to save some bucks, especially if you are on a tight budget. But, bear in mind, professional painters can do the work in a much faster time plus they have the right tools to do the job. If you want to get a high-quality painting work, skip DIY and hire a professional painter.
