Painting Estimate

Why are Painting Bids so Varied in Cost?

It’s true there can be big differences in painting contractor bids for various reasons. One bid might come in much lower than the rest.

Or the opposite is also true with one of the bids coming in much higher than the rest.

There’s the old adage that “you get what you pay for”. In painting, this is often true. But it goes much deeper than that.

In a nutshell, it usually boils down to what kind of paint is being used, the years of experience of the painting company, whether or not they’re fully licensed and insured, and so forth. But let’s explore this some more.

Painting Bid Differences

At Painting America, we use premium paint by Benjamin Moore versus other lower quality paint manufactures. This could easily be a difference of several hundred or over a thousand dollars difference, depending on the size of the home.
