The quick answer is there are none if you want a house painting job that will last for years. If you or a professional house painter cut corners it will show.

I got several quotes from painters in the area to paint my house. One guy was almost a no show to the estimate (only came hours late after I called him) and took weeks to provide me with a quote, another guy was just too new and had no reviews or portfolio. Although House Painting Inc was more expensive than the others, I went with them because of the extensive information I was given at the estimate that he showed up to on time. I was shown lots of hand written reviews, before and after photos, current license and insurance. He took the time to go over every little spot of my house and provided me with a quote within a day.
Awesome post! I just wanted to add a couple tips about cleaning brushes that might be helpful. If you’re painting and are coming back for second coats later the same day, you can put your brush in a ziplock bag to keep it from drying out while you’re taking a break. When cleaning your brushes, use Murphy Oil Soap, it really helps to get the paint off and is eco friendly. You can even soak brushes in it and clean them later on if you’re a giant procrastinator like I am 🙂 I love following your progress with this house and am so stoked to see the finished product! Cheers and have a great day! Alexandra February 25, 2015 Jill @ Champagne for Everyday February 25, 2015

The average cost to paint the interior of a house falls somewhere between $1.50 and $3.50 per square foot. If you’re including the walls and trim plus the ceilings you will likely pay closer to $3-$4. The cost to paint a single room runs between $350 and $850 depending on size. The cost to paint a home interior ranges between $1200-$3900. Labor costs alone account for 70%-85% of your total paint job. If there is damage to the walls that need to be repaired the cost will obviously be higher. These are the average costs if you are paying a professional. Many homeowners choose to tackle the project on their own which can be more cost-effective.
Good contracts include descriptions of prep work and repairs; paint specs by brand name, type, color and product number (check Consumer Reports’ paint ratings; in its tests, some relatively inexpensive paints performed better than more expensive ones and cost $10 to $20 less per gallon); number of coats; and a full description of the work, including frequently omitted items such as cabinet interiors and shutters.
If you’ve decided you want to move ahead and start your own painting business, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.
A 3,000 sq.ft. home is a bit larger than the average home and generally has three to four bedrooms, two to three bathrooms, a living room, a dining room, and a kitchen. The cost to paint a 3,000 square foot home ranges between $9,000 and $12,000 only for the interior. An exterior painting job ranges from $5,000 and $11,400. Therefore, the typical cost of painting a house this size will be between $14,000 and $23,400.
The cost to paint inside a house can be estimated by the number of bedrooms. Painting all the walls inside a house costs $1,000 to $3,000, while a full house interior runs $4,000 to $10,000 on average. Cost To Paint Inside of House Size Average Cost 1-Bedroom House $800 – $4,100 2-Bedroom House $1,000 – $6,400 3-Bedroom House $1,200 – $8,500 4-Bedroom House $2,000 – $10,000 5-Bedroom House $3,000 – $12,000
