    price for painting interior

    A friend wants me to give them an estimate for painting the interior of their rental house. Its empty and the whole thing needs 2 coats to cover some pretty dark walls.

    All the base and trim will be white and the walls an off white or light tan. NO ceilings or doors. just walls and base board. Nothing tricky architecturally and the walls are about 9 ft high for the most part.

    The walls need only light repairs.

    It is a 4 bedroom about 1900 square feet

    For the labor to lay down 1 coat of primer and then one coat of paint

    would any of you be put off by a price of $2100 (Labor only)

    Sounds pretty fair to me. That's only about a buck per square foot for 2 coats.

    near me, the pro painters, not the handymen advertising in the local pennysaver, get 3-4 hundred dollars a room.
    2100 sounds like a fair price, very fair.

    Never thought of it that way.
