Costs / Prices

How much do painters cost? Here we provide examples for the cost of painting a house in Cork, Ireland - including prices for interior painting, exterior painting and decorating.

Why do quotes for painting a house vary so much?

The cost of painting a house depends on many factors. Providing a general valid estimate of the costs of painters in Ireland is quite difficult - usually a painter needs to assess the property to give you a detailed quote. If you get a quote from a painter, then you need to be sure what is included and what type of quality is expected. Typical questions could be:

  • Is painting of the ceilings included?
  • Is the woodwork included (skirting, windows, doors, etc.)?
  • What about the radiators?
  • Is priming the surface included?
  • Is the paint in the price included? What paint brand?
  • Do I need to move the furniture myself?
  • Do I need to cover all furniture myself?
  • Is the cleaning after the job included?
  • What type of finish can be expected?
  • Is all hired equipment like scaffolding or lift included?
  • Is VAT included? (legal requirement)
  • Any other hidden costs?
