PREPARING FOR PAINTING

 malowanie-biur  

1. Evaluating the work amount

Take a look at the place of work and note the basic factors influencing the amount of time required for the job.
Please note any obstacles that significantly complicate the painting, such as:
- built-in wardrobes, counters or wall brackets  – shuffling, removing, protecting
- holes in the walls – additional filling and smoothing
- curtains and blinds – disassembly and assembly
- unusually high walls – work at height complicates the job and  extends the time required for its completion
- surface structure of the walls – textured walls may require up to 10% more paint in comparison to smooth walls.

2. Calculate the total area

 

Basing on this  you will calculate the exact amount of paint needed for the job.

Use the basic formula:
Add the lengths of all walls: [wall 1] + [wall 2] ... + [wall last] = [total length];
Now multiply the total length by the height:
[total length x the height] = total area in m2
To get a precise result calculate the surface area of all windows and doors and deduct it from the total area obtained above.
[total area in m2 - (surface area of all windows and doors).

Example: one rectangular room 12 m. by 14 m., 2.9 m. high with one door and two windows:
Walls  = (12 + 12 + 14 + 14) x 2.9 = 150 meters square;
Door and 2 windows = (20 + 15 + 15) = 50 meters square;~Total area = 150 - 50 = 100 meters square.

3. Calculate the amount of paint needed

 

The amount of paint depends on the surface area, the colour of the paint, and the number of layers.
Nine litres of paint is sufficient for approx. 70 to 80 meters square in the case of smooth walls and for approx. 40 to 60 meters square in the case of textured walls. An additional 10% should be added for waste and underestimations and the result should be rounded up.

In the example above:

470 x 2 = 940 square meters

smooth walls: 940 / 70 = 134, plus10% (13.42 litre ) = 161 litres of paint

textured walls:  940 / 40 = 235, plus 10% (23.5 litre) = 259 litres of paint

Do not forget to add a layer of primer, if necessary. This will additionally increase the material and time requirements.

4. Additional costs

 

Additional costs should be estimated. These include costs of items such as masks, boots, paper, masking tapes, cleaning products and tools necessary for the job.

5. Experience – think about choosing your painting company. 

If the painter is not experienced, the job may take much longer than expected. Make sure you know who you are working with. It should be noted that if a job lasts 10 hours, an experienced painter can do it in 2 hours. It is wise to choose an experienced company with a proven track record.

6. Price of the service

Find out what are the market prices in your area and for regular customers. This is one of the most important factors for estimating painting work. Unfortunately it takes time to find out exactly the applicable rates.

Preparing a tender is a good way to check the prices. One can be sure to obtain an exact market analysis. The question is how much is your time worth? You can make several calls, or place an ad on-line and invite companies for negotiations. The contractors will offer increasingly low prices, however at what cost? Choose a company which due to its experience, training and the best paint provider ( Flugger) offers the best price and the highest quality of the service.
