How to Estimate the Interior/Exterior Coverage for my Paint Job

by Guest on Oct 13, 2016

Before beginning a paint job on any property, it is necessary to undertake some steps of preparation to ensure that the task is completed correctly. The first is to determine the size of the surface area of the wall that is to be painted.

This step will require some measuring, which will not necessarily be easy with such a large area.

If you are aware of the area size of your home, such as that which would have been advised by the agent when you first started occupying the property, take note of this as it may be helpful.

Do not assume that the interior and the exterior will be the same as you need to take into account raised floors, dropped ceilings, trim, guttering, and windows, amongst other aspects.

When measuring the interior, use a tape measure to find the measurements of the height of the wall as well as the width of it. Start by measuring along the base of the wall to the single unit of length that you intend to use, such as one meter. Thereafter, measure up the wall to one meter, which will give you 1m².

Though you may be able to measure along the entirety of the base of the wall, this may not be possible to reach up the wall. In this case, estimate the measurement.

The measurement along the base of the wall can be multiplied by the estimate of the height of it to give you a figure of the estimated coverage required.

If you do not have a tape measure, estimate a single unit as well as how many of these it will take to cover the entire wall.

Exterior is going to be more difficult than the interior.

Measure to a point that you are able to reach and estimate the number of times that this will reach up to the point where the guttering reaches.

If the building is close to a tree, check whether you have any insurance paperwork, for example, that shows the height of the tree, which will give you a good idea if the height of the building according to the height of the tree compared to the building.

After this is calculated, determine whether you need more than one coat, which will mean considering the condition of the surface in the first place.

As part of the process of estimating the cost of the paint job, it is necessary to include the cost of the removal of any existing paint. For certain types of paint, such as that containing lead, it will be necessary for this to be undertaken by a professional to prevent damage to property, harm to the health and to ensure that the project is completed accurately.

It is not just anybody who will be able to carry out this type of work as you can end up with problems that you never imagined, which will require more work to rectify.
