What can I expect to pay for my painting project?

In the Lower Mainland (Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Langley, Surrey, Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack) and Metro Vancouver (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Burnaby, Vancouver, White Rock) the cost of interior painting projects can vary based on several factors such as the size of the area, the condition of the surfaces, the type of paint and finishes selected. Here are some ballpark numbers for interior painting projects, including a breakdown of walls, ceilings, and trimwork:

  • Basic painting of walls typically ranges from CAD $1.50 to $2.50 per square foot.
  • If the walls require extensive preparation work such as patching holes, repairing cracks, or sanding, this can add an additional labor costs for wall repair.
  • Premium quality paint (Benjamin Moore Regal or Aura, Sherwin Williams Emerald) or custom finishes may increase the costs


  • Expect to pay around CAD $1.00 to $2.00 per square foot for basic ceiling painting.
  • This would typically include light texture repairs and stain blocking.

Trimwork (including baseboards, crown molding, door frames, and window trim):Painting trimwork is typically priced separately from walls and ceilings.

  • Costs for trimwork painting vary based on the complexity of the trim and the number of coats required.
  • On average, you can expect to pay around CAD $1.00 and up for trim painting including doors for a single coat color match, with that cost going up with more intricate trimwork or color changes.
  • Intricate or detailed trim may cost more, while simpler trim could be less expensive.

Keep in mind that these are rough estimates, and actual prices may vary depending on the specific details of your project and the rates charged by painting contractors in your area. It’s always a good idea to get multiple quotes from reputable painters and to discuss your expectations and budget upfront to ensure an accurate estimate.

Additionally, factors such as the number of rooms, the height of the ceilings, the presence of furniture or obstacles, and any additional services required (e.g., wallpaper removal, priming) will also influence the overall cost of your interior painting project. A full repaint on an interior home at 2000 square feet will typically range from $4500 if just walls, to $10,000 for walls ceilings and trimwork without custom finishes. This is just a guideline number and can vary.

How long does interior painting typically take?

The time it takes to complete an interior painting project varies depending on factors such as the size of the area, the condition of the walls, and the complexity of the job. However, a standard-sized room usually takes one day to paint. Trim and ceilings may add time to this. A typical 1200 square foot space we can often start and finish within 1 day of painting.

Do I need to prepare the walls before painting?

House Painter in Pitt Meadows
Yes, it’s essential to prepare the walls properly before painting to ensure a smooth and lasting finish. This typically involves patching any holes or cracks, and sanding rough areas. Roarty Painting can take care of this for you.

What type of paint should I use for interior walls?

Interior Painter Maple Ridge
The type of paint you should use depends on various factors such as the surface you’re painting (e.g., drywall, plaster, wood), the desired finish (e.g., matte, satin, semi-gloss), and any specific needs (e.g., washability, low odor). We can advise you on the best paint options based on your preferences and requirements.

How do I choose the right colors for my walls?

Paint Colors Vancouver
Choosing the right colors can significantly impact the overall look and feel of your space. We offer color consultation services to help you select hues that complement your decor, lighting, and personal style. Additionally, we can provide paint samples or digital renderings to visualize the colors in your space before making a decision.

Is it necessary to use primer before painting? Is 2 coats necessary?

Primer Paint
In some cases, using a primer is recommended, especially when painting over bare surfaces, repairing damaged areas, or making significant color changes. Primer helps improve paint adhesion on trimwork, can promote uniform color coverage, and enhances durability.

For very light colors such as Cloud White, White Dove, Simply White, Chantilly Lace, Decorators White, or other popular Benjamin Moore off whites covering over top of neutral or dark colors, you can expect 3 coats or more for coverage.

However, for basic color changes, 2 coats is typically sufficient and a primer is not necessary.

Can you paint over wallpaper?

Paint over wallpaper
While it’s possible to paint over wallpaper, it’s not always the best solution. The success of this method depends on the condition of the wallpaper, its adhesion to the wall, and the type of paint used. We can assess your specific situation and recommend the most appropriate approach, which may involve wallpaper removal or surface preparation.

How do you protect my furniture and floors during painting?

We take great care to protect your belongings and surfaces during the painting process. This includes covering furniture, floors, and fixtures with drop cloths, plastic sheeting, and painter’s tape to prevent accidental spills and splatters.

Will there be a lot of odor or fumes during the painting process?

Painter in Coquitlam
We use low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) or zero-VOC paints whenever possible to minimize odor and fumes. Additionally, we ensure proper ventilation during and after painting to help dissipate any residual odors quickly.

How do I maintain the painted walls after the job is complete?

Clean painted walls
Proper maintenance can help preserve the beauty and longevity of your painted walls. We recommend using mild soap and water for cleaning, avoiding abrasive cleaners or scrubbing, and promptly addressing any stains or marks to prevent them from setting.
