Price of a painter

We are beginning out painter search to paint our main floor. I am wondering what the average cost to hire a painter might be. I've never hired one before always done it myself.

Canada don't know it but New York has prices from 45 to 75 an hour where I am it goes from 25 to 60 an hour it really depends on the work also degree of difficulty or how high end it is are you doing time and materials or a bid there's a difference

Check Kijiji in the trades section. Call and ask for some prices. Better yet, ask friends/family for a referral.

We just had the upstairs reprinted by a professional painter. He did an amazing job. Our home has three nice size bedrooms 1.5 bathrooms hallway family room living room and kitchen. The ceilings are all 8ft except in the living area where there are 20ft and and very large room. The house was empty as we were painting etc to sell it. The trim and all closets and door were done as well. Top quality paint was used and a fair amount of refinishing / repair was needed. We paid 4200.00 but we got a great deal. Going price for our job would be 5000 to 5500. Of course it all depends on amount of work involved as well. We live in western Canada. PS. Our house sold in 6 days , 2000.00 below list. A good paint job it well worth the investment.
