Painter for a Day FAQ

Categories: Strata Services

What happens if I need the Painter for a Day for more than one day?

Depending on schedule, he may be able to stay an extra hour or two on the day he is working for you. The additional cost per hour is $85.00 + applicable taxes (billed to the nearest half hour). If necessary, you can book the Painter for a Day for a second day (at the same daily rate), although we will need to confirm his availability for the second day.

paint materialsWhat about additional materials that may be needed?

Sometimes additional caulking, wall repair, masking, or other materials are needed to do the job right. In this case, either you can purchase the materials, or you can have our painter purchase the materials. The retail cost for any additional materials purchased will be added to your invoice.

What constitutes part of the Painter for a Day’s work time, and what does not?

The painter’s coffee and lunch break are not part of the 7.5 hours. If, however, he needs to leave the site to purchase more paint or materials on your behalf, this time is considered part of his work day. (You may want to minimize this by doing these errands yourself.)

What if the painter finishes my work in less than a day?

Since our painter is booked for the entire day and likely can’t fill the rest of his day with other paid hours, there is no refund for partial days of work. The flat rate is $495.00 + applicable taxes for his services, whether the job takes just a few hours or the entire 7.5 hours.

Are there restrictions on what the Painter for a Day can do?

The rate is based on work under 25’ in height and assumes that the Painter will be able to gain safe access to the work area. Some specialty finishes and wall covering installation may not be available under the Painter for a Day. The Painter for a Day can include spray work, but there is an additional $125.00 per day charge for the use of a spray machine, and the cost of whatever additional masking materials are used.

What basic painting equipment & materials will the Painter for a Day bring?

  • Filler for minor wall dents & nail or screw holes
  • A tube of caulking for minor cosmetic caulking
  • Basic sanding materials, scrapers, and filling knives
  • Paint brushes, rollers, trays
  • Drywall sealer & waterborne primer for minor spot priming
  • Masking materials and dropcloths for minor masking
  • Ladders to access up to 25’ (Please inform us of any work planned over 10’ so that we have the proper ladders with us.)
