Painting Costs in the Calgary Area will vary when variables such as the brand of paint, the number of layers or coats and the quality of prep job and finish are recognized. You will find that every painting contractor in Calgary will give you a different response to this question.
For Interior Painting Costs you have to weigh several factors when determining the price of a painting job.
An ordinary Bedroom closet costs roughly $50 to paint 2 layers. A flat door is cheaper to paint than a paneled door if done by a roll or brush. Two layers on a flat door would cost roughly $25 per door depending on the quality. A paneled door would be about double the cost to paint by brush because it takes twice as much time to do it. A French door will require even longer to paint because of the many mun tins or glass panels.
Other Factors That Affect Calgary Painting Prices
