Handy Home Painting Tips

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.
