How much do painters charge for interior painting?

Would it be my responsibility to take down the drapes in the living room?

It really depends on where you are. I think it prudent to remove your window treatments to protect them. I also remove anything breakable, all collectable treasures and even furniture that I don’t want handled by my painters. That being said, it was impossible to remove my duponi silk window treatments when I had my living room painted. The company I hired simply masked them off with plastic and they did not get any paint on them. Ads around here (SoCal) are running at about $1800 for an entire house (3 bedroom, 2 bath up to 2,000 square feet).

    Depends on where you live and I don’t have my clients touch or move anything I do it. I ask if it’s something my insurance co. can’t replace then they move it (I’m insured for 1 million $$) as far as what I charge I get $300 a day plus materials, average room ceiling and walls runs around $350 total, with woodwork (baseboard, 2 doors, 1 window) caulk through out your looking around $650 and the price I gave would include materials. I live in the northeast hope I helped, Good luck Les the painter And I use Ben Moore products

    Like everyone said, it depends on where you are on what the local going rate is. It also depends on what exactly you are having done. Going from a dark paint from a light paint will require at least one coat of tinted primer and usually a couple of coats of paint so that there is no streaking. Going from a dark to a light may also require several coats of paint after the primer.

    Are you wanting a faux finish? A texture? A textured look?

    I am a painter and I charge not by the square foot, but by what the job entails.

    Normally I do not move furniture or take down draperies. Some draperies are very delicate and hard to hang and I do not want the added liability or responsibility of handling them. If a person is in a real bind, I may take down and rehang the drapes after specifying that I will not be held liable for any damage. I also charge for the time spent handling them.
