Make sure you calculate the volume of paint required to cover the walls, taking into account the surface area that needs to be covered, the number of coats required, and add 10% for wastage. Some paint manufacturers specify the surface area covered. If this information isn’t available, an online paint calculator can be used instead.
Consider the length of the warranty or guarantee for paint finishes and make sure it is appropriate for the intended use. A high specification paint which is easier to apply and lasts longer could be more cost effective than cheaper paints that will need to be reapplied more frequently.
For professional jobs, make sure that the specification is clear for contractors, so that the paints suggested are fit for purpose and compliant with current legislation. It’s also important to specify the quality of the finish expected.
Careful planning and execution of the paint application on the jobsite can help save time, resources and result in a better quality finish. Choosing primers and paints that are easy to apply and experienced professionals are important to ensure a quality end result. The number of coats required, ease of application and method (spraying, painting, rolling) can also impact the number of hours of work required, influencing the cost.
