The holidays are coming and the house could use a fresh coat of paint, to give a bright and shiny appearance for all the holiday festivities.
Here is a handy tip for how much paint you will need to purchase. Measure the areas you are going to paint, and then convert to square feet.
Surface Coverage (per gallon)
Exterior Rough 90-110 sq ft
Exterior Smooth 375-475 sq ft
Interior Rough 120-190 sq ft
Interior Smooth 420-490 sq ft
This is for the first coat. If a second coat is required it is usually about 2/3 as much paint. Make sure you confirm the amount you need with your paint vendor as the amount could vary depending on the type of paint, andthe painting technique you are going to use.
