How much do painters and decorators in Exeter charge?

Generally, painters and decorators in Exeter charge a day rate for their services, which is typically around £150 to £200. Considering that any painting job will typically take at least two days (to allow time for the first coat to dry), you can expect to pay around £400 for someone to paint an average sized bedroom. For a whole-home makeover, costs range from around £1,500 for a two-bedroom apartment to £3,500+ for a large family home.

External jobs tend to cost more as they typically require a little more preparation work. Your decorator may need to remove moss or ivy from the walls, or fill in cracks before they can start. Surfaces such as pebbledash may also be trickier to paint and take a little longer.
