Estimate and coverage area of wall putty,primer and paint

Estimate and coverage area of wall putty,primer and paint, hi guys in this article we know about cost and coverage area of wall care putty, primer and paint and also know about painting cost per square foot,wall putty cost per square foot, material cost per square foot and labour cost per square foot.

While making estimate and coverage area, we should find out cost of material like wall care putty, primer and paint per square foot and their coverage area.

Wall Care Putty :- It is a white cement-based, water-resistant, white wall putty that ensures a strong binding with building surfaces, a smooth finish, extensive coverage, superior refractive index, and paint-friendliness. Its unique formula which keep the moisture away and also avoid flaking. So, you are assured of aesthetic interiors for your dream home for years to come.

Primer :- primer paint for exterior emulsions that offers superior adhesion to all exterior top coats. Exterior and interior Wall Primer is a water based primer that gives a tough film and as a result, helps to provide longer life of total paint system.

Most families get their interiors done when they move into a new house. They do not change it unless there is a dire need of renovations. However, painting is an activity that needs to happen once in a couple of years. Not only does painting give your home a fresh look, it also helps maintain the walls of the house. Naturally, everyone is interested in the cost of painting a house per square foot India.

Various factors come into play while arriving at this costing, like types of paint, labour charges, area and others. Moreover, due to this complexity, homeowners tend to make errors of judgement in selecting types of paint.

So here’s a detailed guide on what choices are involved, how much investment it implies and how each of these factors affect the cost of painting a house so that you budget well!

The cost of painting exteriors is lesser, but the process is more cumbersome, what is the surface that is being painted? This is the most important question to be answered. The cost of exterior paint is lesser than interior paint. However, the process of exterior painting is cumbersome as you may need to use scaffolding or a ladder pulley. experts say, more coats of paint and an extensive sanding/levelling process are required for exteriors as they are often more weather-beaten.

The condition of the walls is the next factor that comes into play here. A fresh coat of paint needs 1-2 coats of putty, 1 coat of primer and at least 2-3 coats of paint. However, for a repaint, you need touch-up putty and primer coupled with 1-2 coats of paint. Wall punning is recommended for the higher range (luxury) paints as it enhances the look by covering up undulations on the wall. Naturally, fresh painting costs more than repainting a home.

Estimate and coverage area of wall putty,primer & paint

Consider we have 2000 sq ft area of new plastering wall and ceiling both interior and exterior and we have to do painting over it.

First of all, there are various types of Wall Putty in the market. So to answer this question, I will assume you have asked regarding White Cement Based Wall Putty like; Birla Wall Care Putty, J.K. Wall Putty, Whitegold Wall Putty, etc.

Second most important factor to calculate the requirement of wall putty is surface of plastered walls. If the plastered wall has very rough finish, you might be needed to do 3 coats of Wall Putty for perfect wall finish.

If the surface finish is acceptable & there are no major undulation in your walls; you can roughly assume consumption of approximately 12–15 sq. feet per kg for 2 coats of wall putty & 8 – 12 sq feet per kg for 3 coats of Wall Putty.

Estimate and coverage area of wall putty

Coverage of Wall Putty in strictly depending on Plastered Surface, Skills of Applicator & No. of Coats. So you can always confirm by doing a sample on site by buying 5 kg pack from market & applying on walls.

Wall putty coverage area is 12 – 15 sq ft per kg for 2 coat and 8 – 12 sq ft per kg for 3 coat. 1 bag of wall putty have 40 kg,so 1 bag (40kg) wall putty coverage area is 480 -600 sq ft for 2 coating & 320 -480 sq ft for 3 coating.

If we talk about wall putty coverage area in square metre per kg then wall putty coverage area is 1.2 – 1.4 sq meter per kg for 2 coat and 0.75 – 1.2 sq m per kg for 3 coat. 1 bag of wall putty have 40 kg,so 1 bag (40kg) wall putty coverage area is 45 – 56 sq m for 2 coating & 30 – 45 sq m for 3 coating.

Calculating cost and quantity of wall putty and their material estimate we have do following steps:-

● Area = 2000 sq ft

● wall putty coverage = 14 sq ft/Kg for 2 coats

● wall putty required = 2000/14 = 143 kg

● 1 bag wall putty = 40 kg, no of bag of wall putty in 143 kg = 143/40 = 3.58, so 3.58 number of bag of wall putty require

● 1 bag wall putty cost = rs 800

● estimate and cost of material of wall putty = 800 × 3.58 = rs 2864

● consider labour cost approx rs 2 per sq ft for 2 coating wall putty.

● Cost of labour = 2000 × 2 = rs 4000

Estimate & cost of wall putty = wall putty material cost + labour cost

cost of wall putty installation = 2864 + 4000 = rs 6864 for 2000 sq ft. And for 1 sq ft = 6864/2000 = rs 3.5

Cost of wall putty is rs 3.5 per sq ft including material and labour cost for 2 coat.

Estimate and coverage area of wall primer

Primer paint for exterior emulsions that offers superior adhesion to all exterior top coats. Exterior and interior Wall Primer is a water based primer that gives a tough film and as a result, helps to provide longer life of total paint system. It does not chalk and can easily be applied on cured fresh plaster. With this exterior primer you will get extra whiteness and excellent opacity on your walls.

Coverage area of wall primer is 120 – 140 sq ft per litre for 1 coat and 90 – 100 sq ft per litre for 2 coat.

If we talk about his square metre then coverage area of cement primer is 11.2 -13 sq m per litre for 1 coat and 8.4 – 9.3 sq m per litre for 2 coat

Calculating cost and quantity of wall primer and their material estimate we have do following steps:-

● Area = 2000 sq ft

● coverage area of primer = 100 sq ft per litre

● quantity of primer required = 2000/100 = 20 litre

● Rate of primer = rs 200 per litre, then cost of 20 litre primer = 200 × 20 = rs 4000.

● labour cost for primer = rs 1 per sq ft, then labour cost for 2000 square feet primer work = 2000×1 = rs 2000

Estimate & cost of wall primer = wall primer material cost + labour cost

Cost of wall primer = 4000 + 2000 = rs 6000

Total cost of wall primer is rs 6000 for 2000 square feet primer work, if we talk about per square feet installation cost, then it will be 6000/2000 = rs 3

Cement primer post is rs 3 per square feet including material and labour cost.

Estimate and coverage area of paint

Coverage area of paint is 140 – 160 sq ft per litre for 1 coat and 70 – 80 sq ft per litre for 2 coat.

If we talk about in square metre for new work plastering coverage area of paint is 8 sq m per litre for 2 coat and for old work coverage area of paint is 13.33 sq m per litre for 1 coat.

Calculating cost and quantity of waterproofing paint and their material estimate we have do following steps:-

● Area = 2000 sq ft

● coverage area of paint = 75 sq ft per litre for 2 coat

● quantity of paint required = 2000/75 = 27 litre

● Rate of paint = rs 400 per litre, then cost of 27 litre paint = 400 × 27 = rs 10800.

● labour cost for paint = rs 2 per sq ft, then labour cost for 2000 square feet painting work = 2000×2 = rs 4000.

Estimate & cost of wall paint = wall paint material cost + labour cost

Cost of wall paint = 10800 + 4000 = rs 14800

Total cost of wall paint is rs 14800 for 2000 square feet painting work, if we talk about per square feet installation cost, then it will be 14800/2000 = rs 7.4

Wall paint cost is rs 7.4 per square feet including material and labour cost.

Estimate and coverage area of wall putty,primer and paint

Estimate and coverage area of wall putty,primer and paint

● conclusion :-

●1) Wall putty cost = rs 3.5 per sq ft including material and labour cost

● 2) Wall primer cost = rs 3 per sq ft including material and labour cost

● 3) Wall paint cost = rs 7.4 per sq ft including material and labour cost

Now overall estimate and cost for painting of house per square feet including material and labour cost = rs 3.5 for putty + rs 3 for primer + rs 7.4 for paint = rs 13. 9.

Estimate and cost for painting of house is Rs 13.9 per square feet including material ( 2 coat putty + 1 coat primer + 2 coat paint) and labour cost.
