    hall stairs and landing 10th Oct 19 at 5:24 PM
    How much would I expect to pay for someone to paint the walls of my hall stairs and landing, skirtings and four door frames (not the doors).
    This is in a small three bedroom house in west midlands.

    I have a piece of string here.....


    There are too many variables.


    Who supplies the paint and of what quality? A decent trade quality paint will require fewer quotes than a value brand paint and therefore will take less to apply.


    How much preparation is needed? Lots to fill?


    Does the woodwork need filling? Or burning back?
    Does it need sugar-soaping first?


    And who do you want to do it? A benefits claimant who wants some extra cash on the side and who knows just about which end of a brush to hold, or a time served decorator running his own business?


    the only way to know is to get quotes.
    Eat vegetables and fear no creditors, rather than eat duck and hide.
