A rough way to calculate how much painting work you need is multiply your carpet area by 4. For eg: if your home is 600 sq. ft. Carpet area then you need to paint 600 x 4 = 2400 . If your painter has quoted you Rs 27 per sq.fr. Then cost works out to be 27 x 2400 =
Rs 64800

This amount is approximate & on higher side. The actual cost will calculated as per the measurements but in most cases you should be prepared for the calculations as mentioned above.

      yes, Painting rates in most cases are given including all materials. You have to confirm what brand & type of paint is considered in quote. If there is need for any special treatment chemical – for water proofing or fungus or anything like that, then that is charged extra

      Deepti ji, no treatment will give result, unless you fix root cause of leakage. First fix the spot/issue which is causing leakage.
