Estimating Guidelines

The following examples are very useful in estimating materials cost when painting with Fine Paints of Europe® finishes. If you are planning on doing the work yourself, the only additional costs will be incidentals such as sandpaper, solvents, brushes, etc. If you are planning on using a professional painter, your labor factor with FPE paints will normally be the same or a bit more than that for conventional domestic coatings, and your overall cost including labor and paint will seldom increase more than 15%.
