As mentioned earlier, the price of your painting job in Dubai will depend largely on the experience of the painter you hire. However, other factors will come into play such as the need to move furniture, repair walls, or the ceiling height. Some contractors charge by the hour, others charge a flat rate, and still, others set the rate according to the size of the rooms.
A professional house painter will charge a minimum of 100AED per hour (going up to 30AED/hr). The rate will be at least 20AED per hour for a student painter, knowing that it must be taken into consideration that he will be less fast than professional painters Ajman.
In addition to experience, what will clearly increase your bill will be the reputation of the painter, the schedule (if you ask for the work to start and finish as soon as possible, it will naturally cost you more), as well as the period of the work (did you know that renovation work is less expensive in winter?).
In a table further down in the article we present some examples of prices for different room sizes.
Factors influencing the price of painting
Cleaning and repair of walls
Walls should be cleaned before painting begins, but sometimes repairs are necessary. This is the case for minor or major cracks that need to be filled before painting. Hire Painters Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman UAE.
Woodwork and mouldings
Woodwork such as doors and windows as well as the various moldings on the walls require a great deal of attention and time depending on the level of detail they involve. The painter will spend more time on them, which will inevitably impact your bill.
Number of coats required
If you opt for bright or dark colors, then the painter will certainly have to apply several coats of paint in order to obtain the desired shade. The idea would be to choose a good quality paint to reduce the number of coats to be applied.
For some high-end residences, as well as for heritage houses, the ceiling height can be much higher than for traditional houses. This type of work requires scaffolding and the risk of accidents will be greater.
Drying time is required after each coat of paint is applied. Therefore, the more coats you apply, the longer the drying time will be, increasing your house painter’s fees.
Moving furniture and appliances will definitely increase your bill, especially if the painter has to requisition an extra worker for this task.
