Damn!

I'm boiling mad now. I knew we were being taken. This man is trying to charge us $7,000. Same size as yours.

Are you talking about inside or outside?

And there are cost differences for different areas. And maybe your house needs more repairs or prep work. Their are so many variables that could change the price. I would get 2 more estimates and ask for referrals.

Just the inside.

Minimal mud work and sanding.

We had two quotes, one was for $5k the other was for $4k. We hired a family friend (who does it for a living) instead. The two companies were going to to a higher finish job (no bumps or streaks etc) but this guy did a low finish.

He won't give us receipts of what he bought. About half of the job is finished and we had to fire him. He was nickel and dining us. We have him the job because he was having money trouble. We learned our lesson.

Not our current house, but our beach house we had the entire interior painted. Around 6000 square feet, minimal prep work, and a few different colours. The total was $8k and worth every penny.

Depends in the area, dimensions of your house, paint type and the length of time.

That seems really high. I always go with the middle estimate if the person or company has good reviews.
