Our elders paint our houses often particularly during family functions, after delivery, before Pongal etc. Not without purpose. It would create good surrounding and clean house by clearing small insects including karaiyans. It would also increase the life of our house as rain water would not enter the bricks or roofs. When we think of painting, we are afraid of the huge cost being charged by reputed companies. But, as we engage painters from villages as daily wagers, we charge nominal and unbelievable rates. We also come across cases, when a person vacates house we have to paint before letting it out. We can not afford to spend much, that too when vacations take place frequently. We can spend less by one coat of same colour paint. We need not paint roofs
We have come across quotations for painting houses quoting Rs. 1.50 lakhs etc. and demading advance payment of 75% of the amount. We have a good team of painters and the offer is to paint a 1000 sq ft house for Rs. 30000/- ( one coat of the same colour for walls, wood, doors etc. except roofs). For two quotes including the painting of the roof, we may charge Rs. 50000/-. For complete change of colour, the cost may be around Rs. 75000/-. Our staff would take care of arranging and rearranging things while painting. They will not disturb us much. It should be a pleasure not a burden. Give us a chance. Let us paint our houses at reasonable rates.
