I can’t tell you how much money property managers and rehabbers waste buying too much paint for their jobs. So, I wanted to give you guys a great little chart that I found online that I have used as a great tool to pinpoint the amount of paint for each job. Here is the chart:
Here is the link to where the paint calculator was found. The paint calculator will help guide you through the process of buying the right amount of paint for your next project. Find the right amount in just two easy steps:
- Measure the height and width of your space
- Locate the correlating values on the chart
Measuring before you buy will help you save money, the environment and the space needed to store your unused paint. It wil help you keep your maintenance costs and/or rehab costs down without a lot of left over paint.
