Painting job cost
Bought a brand new home 5 years ago and just getting around to painting. Current contractor grade paint is still in a very good condition but like to see some color on the walls.
Got 3 different estimates and am very confused now. So need some expert input pls. HOme is 2 stories, 2 bedroom, 3 baths (2br not being painted) - 3000sqft home. No crown molding or chair molding. 1st floor is pretty open plan with kitchen DR,LR and family room. 1st floor all same color, one br and bath 2nd color and one br and bath 3rd color. SO not very complicated- white celing.
1) $4300 - move furniture (not much and I can do it my selft), fix any craks or nails popping out and calk around windows/door. I buy the paint, he supplies paint for moldings around door/windows. - Seen his work - really nice job done
2) $4600 - same as 1. I provide ALL paint.
3) $2500 - same stuff done and I provide all paint and calking material. - waiting for reference
So, you can see why I am confused, the 3rd estimate is about 1/2 price and trying to figure out why? They painted many homes and take pride in their work. I didn't see anything wrong or worrisome when I spoke with them.
Can you pls help with your expert insight. Sorry for rambling but wanted to give you all the info for your opinions. Anything I didn't chk that I should?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
