Pick your colors and sheen finishes with the contractor before you sign or put a deposit down on a contract.  Specify the brand if you have a preference. Be sure your finishes and colors are on the contract prior to signing. This will help prevent a communication issue when the painter is finished.


Paint prices

Paint gets more expensive as you go from flat to gloss. The difference is usually around $1 per gallon per sheen upgrade. Flat is the cheapest, then matte flat or eggshell, satin, semigloss then gloss. Paint also gets much more expensive the darker it gets. A white or neutral paint color can be as much as $20 less expensive than a deep base red or blue.

Paint coverage issues

Most of the time you can look at the condition of a wall and its color and tell if the new color will cover in two coats, but sometimes you can be surprised. If your contractor is almost finished with a project and realizes that your walls need another coat and it’s not on the contract, it will be a very expensive third coat.

Make sure you specify with your contractor on the original proposal the exact pricing of additional coats.
