Cost Of Painting A 3-Bedroom House

What Is The Cost Of Painting A 3 Bedroom House In Kenya

On Average, it will cost between Ksh. 100,000 to Ksh. 240,000 to paint the interior & exterior walls of a three-bedroom house in Kenya. This cost includes the price of materials and labor for a painter, and it will take around one to two weeks to complete.

This is based on the average cost of painting per square meter of Ksh. 370.

Example: The average cost of painting a 3-bedroom bungalow house with 350 wall surfaces will be 350*370/- = KSh.  129,500( labour & materials).

Labor costs are typically Ksh. 1500 to Ksh. 2500/day per person, and two to three painters can paint the exterior of a 350-square-square room in 10 full days at an average cost of Ksh. 45,000 (1500*3*10).

However, the cost may vary depending on factors such as the size of the rooms, how much paint is required, and how many hours are needed. If you only want a single room or part of your house painted, costs differ by room type.

When estimating the cost of painting materials for a job, you need to consider the size and complexity of the job. You will need different materials for an interior versus exterior paint job.

Basic materials required paints, rollers, brushes, trays, drop cloths and painter’s tape. The labor cost is often 25% to 35% of the total cost when it comes to professional exterior painting jobs.

The process involves gathering materials, preparing and repairing walls, caulking any gaps, sanding old paint, priming, painting two coats, and cleaning up afterward.

If a home painting company follows best practices when quoting a price for their services, they will include both labor and material costs in their quote.

It is important to note that this estimate is just a rough guide and that prices may vary depending on the specific circumstances of each project.

It is recommended to get quotes from several painters before making a decision and to ensure that all costs are included in the quote (e.g., doors, windows, trim).

Additionally, it is advisable to choose high-quality paint that will last longer and require less maintenance in the long run.

What Factors Affect The Cost Of Painting A House In Kenya?

The cost of painting a house in Kenya is influenced by several factors. The size and design of the house are significant factors that affect the total cost of construction.

The shape and design of the house determine the amount of material needed, the level of finishes, and the expertise required.

Architects design and draw up building plans, taking into consideration several things such as the topography of the land, which hugely affects the type of house you can build on the land.

The style of the house also matters. Some people go for a cheaper modern style, while traditional style homes have a lot of detailing in their design.

The surface area to be painted is another factor that affects painting costs. A litre of paint covers about 8  to 12 square metre, so you will need to divide the total approximate paintable area by this to determine how much paint you will need.

You may need more paint on rough or porous exterior surfaces or when transitioning from a dark to a much lighter color. Labor costs are also significant factors affecting painting costs. Painting complexities such as inaccessible areas, exclusive customer demands, intricate color combinations, color patterns, designs also affect painting costs.

Other factors that impact painting costs include decorative features other than siding and quality of siding for exterior painting jobs.

Additionally, location plays a role in determining painting costs. For instance, accessibility to materials may vary depending on your home’s location.

In conclusion, several factors influence the cost of painting a house in Kenya. These include size and design of the house, surface area to be painted, labor costs, decorative features other than siding for exterior jobs and quality of siding. It is essential to discuss exact costs with your service provider before starting any project.
