Unforeseen circumstances can lead to unexpected painting costs in the middle of your project. Master Painters of London Ontario has identified a dozen examples of these potential surprises:

Structural Damage: Uncovering hidden structural issues like rot or water damage behind walls may result in extra expenses and project delays.

Pest Infestations: Dealing with unexpected pest problems, such as termites, cockroaches, or rodents, may require additional remediation for health and safety reasons before painting can proceed.

Hidden Asbestos: The discovery of asbestos during your project may necessitate costly removal, which could impact your budget, or it can remain undisturbed. You must weigh your options.

Lead Paint Abatement: Older homes may contain lead-based paint, requiring costly lead paint abatement. We offer solutions that don’t require any abatement.

Environmental Hazards: Environmental concerns such as mould or mildew may require specialized removal and protective measures to ensure health and safety.

Complex Architectural Features: Extra charges may apply for intricate architectural details, especially those located at great heights or in non-standard angles.

Old Wiring or Plumbing: Electrical or plumbing issues discovered during the project must be addressed before painting can proceed. Completing all necessary work beforehand can prevent damage to your newly painted walls.

Change Orders: Any changes in your project’s scope or requests for upgraded materials can lead to unexpected expenses.

Weather Delays: Outdoor painting projects may face delays due to adverse weather conditions, potentially increasing labour costs if work has to stop at midday.

Labour Shortages: Unexpected labour shortages in the painting industry can drive up costs. Master Painters of London Ontario, where we provide fixed pricing, can help you navigate these challenges.

Material Price Increases: Fluctuations in paint and material costs may impact your project’s budget. Seek a comprehensive quote to better manage this expense and trust in your painting contractor.
