Signs it’s time to hire painters for your Penrith home
There are a few telltale signs that now is the right time to paint. Whether inside or outside your house, consider whether any of these ring true to you:
- I’m tired of looking at the same colours every day.
- The walls are starting to look dingy rather than crisp white.
- Existing paint is starting to crack, peel, or bubble up.
- The colour has faded and no longer has a bright hue.
- Wear and tear have left their mark on the surfaces.
Luckily, a fresh coat of paint can fix all of these. Plus, it can make your space more inviting for you, visitors, and even potential buyers (if you can bear to part with it after the makeover).

How long does a professional paint job take?
Generally speaking, it can take roughly 3-4 days to paint a home exterior and 1-2 days to paint interior walls and/or cabinetry. What goes into these rather broad ranges? A number of factors, actually.
For exterior paint jobs, services are at the whims of the weather. You can’t have a home painted in extreme temperatures, rain, or high winds. Once the elements cooperate, the exterior will need to be cleaned and prepped to receive the new paint. This involves sanding and scraping away at the surface so it’s nice and smooth. Primer might be needed to give the colour an even coating to overlay. And depending on the colour, type, and condition of the home, you may want or need more than one coat.
Inside, the process is a bit more straightforward. Prep work includes clearing furniture away from the walls, removing hangings, and adding drop cloths that cover the floor, furnishings or counters. Trim work, light, outlets, and other fixtures should be taped off to keep paint off. Windows may be wrapped or sealed if the team plans to spray on the paint. The actual paint work may take several coats to get the deep colour you’re looking for.
All of these aspects take time, but this can be cut down a bit if more crew members are available and sent to the job. If time is of the essence, be sure to tell any professional painter you are considering. This way, they can factor time into their estimate for you.
Average cost of painting in Penrith
Rates are hard to estimate without an onsite visit and quote for your actual space. Every house is unique in size, layout, and condition. Plus, costs will be different for interior and exterior paint projects, the number of coats, the brand of paint you choose, and how long it take to do the job. On average, painting service costs vary between $12 to $60 per square metre. For a mid-size home in Penrith, that can look like $5,000 to $8,000 for exterior painting or $2,500 to $3,000 for the interior.

Frequently Asked Questions About Painters in Penrith
What do I have to do to prep my house for an interior paint job?
You’ll likely want to remove anything from the walls (mirrors, paintings, family photos). Anything breakable, valuable, or a valuable breakable should be moved to a safe spot to avoid a crew member bumping into something irreplaceable. And it always helps to take down your window coverings in advance. A professional painting service will tape off or use drop sheets to protect the rest.
Do paint projects make a mess?
Not when done right! Crews should be putting down the proper drop cloths to protect everything from furniture to flooring. Windows and glass are wrapped, sealed, or taped off to avoid contact with paint. Any sanding or scraping – inside or out – should be cleaned up along the way with materials disposed of properly. Be sure to ask any painting service what their clean up procedures are (and whether they haul away any debris) before you sign with them.
Do I need council approval to paint my house?
The majority of councils do not require approvals for exterior painting. That said, it’s always important to check your local regulations to make sure you don’t need approval for details like paint colour changes. Occasionally, some councils will restrict paint to certain colour families, especially if you live in a residential development.
