We recently we carried out a house painting price survey of some of the painters from Dublin on Tradesmen.ie. We asked our tradesmen for quotes on a semi detached 3 bed house that required painting internally and externally. With regards internal painting the lowest price in our survey was €600 and the highest was €3,500 with the average price being €2,050. With regards the external house painting the lowest price was €350 and the highest €1850 with the average price being €1,100.
The findings from our survey:
Averaged price for external painting of 3 bed semi detached = €1,100
Averaged price for internal painting of 3 bed semi detached = €2,050

As you can see the prices vary a lot. Make sure that you are comparing like with like when you are pricing painting. See does the quote include or exclude paint and see does it include or exclude vat. See what paint is being used, for example Dulux paint will be more expensive but will be far better quality. Also, make sure that you only hire a professional painter and that you ask for previous references and insurance details etc..
