How much do painters and decorators near me cost?

Most painters and decorators in Portsmouth charge a daily fee, typically between £150 and £200. Painting and decorating companies in Portsmouth are likely to charge more than sole traders, though.

However, there are other costs to consider, such as the cost of the paint. Depending on the quality and type, paint can cost anything from £10 to £50 for five litres. Removing wallpaper can also add to the final cost. And if the plaster underneath needs extra work before it can be painted, this can significantly increase the overall cost.

Choosing the right painter and decorator for your project is important for the best results.

Consider the following tips before choosing:

  • Pick a specialist instead of a general handyperson
  • Discuss the potential tradesperson’s work process
  • Request quotes from each tradesperson you’re considering
  • Pick someone with plenty of specific experience
  • Discuss how long the job will take

Make sure you choose someone with specialised, recent experience in your job. Don’t be shy to ask for examples of their previous work in person.
