How much can I bid to paint a room that is about 250ft long and 230ft wide. Then from floor level to the ceiling is 95ft. Including the painting of the ceiling.

Divide the square feet by the number of bristles on your brush and add tree fiddy.Man that's a big room.

I'm going with... oh too late. Tree Fiddy.

( Reason no one will give you a price is because there are about a million variables , including your competence as a painter, that are part of the equation..)

Hi there---pricing questions never work well here---please call in a couple of local painters----for the names of skilled,insured pros--go to your local paint store and ask for a referral ---

Depends on the paint. Will it be chloroacetophenone based, or more of a polyisocyanurate? If it is the latter then just take the squre root of the hypoteneuse and multiply it by the relative humidity. Oh yeah, and add tree fiddy.
