How many coats on what?
We've had five estimates for painting the interior of our home. The upstairs is brand new plaster walls with pre-primed trim and doors. The first floor is just a freshen-up.
The first, and lowest, estimate was primer everywhere, one coat paint on ceiling and closet walls, two coats on everything else. Is that acceptable? The three closets will have closet mades.
The last painter said he could match the estimate if he only did the above and was able to come in before the finished floor was down to spray the primer and first coat on everything. He would still guarantee the work. This was for the second floor.
