General Mural Info and Pricing
Mural costs vary based on the following factors:
Quality of Materials used (spray paint, latex paint, clear coats, primers/sealers)
Equipment Needs (i.e. scaffolding, lift, masking materials, sprayers, etc.)
Complexity of design (i.e. amount of detail, number of colors, style, size, etc.)
Design Process (i.e. digital sketches, physical drawings, paint sampling, etc.)
Design for a mural begins after receiving a design deposit of $100. This design is generally communicated through a digital mock up of the mural on a photo of the wall, but if necessary physical sketches and paintings will be made to better communicate the style and feel of the design. This deposit covers the cost of up to 2 revisions to the initial design. This cost also covers a visit to the sight of the mural to ensure details of the mural are met.
Average mural costs range from $5-$40/ sq. ft. of the area being painted, with an $300 minimum for any mural size. Mural size starts at the size of a door. Detail plays a huge part in each mural and it’s cost. A more detailed mural will cost more per square foot. Ect. It is important that we discuss your idea so I can understand your vision and give you an estimate.
The cost above includes the cost of insurance, materials, design, labor and equipment for the mural painting but does not include general repair and preparation of the wall (i.e.. cleaning, masonry work, priming, etc.) or clear coating of the wall to be painted. Unless otherwise requested, the paint used will be high commercial quality, exterior grade paint and may not require the added protection of a clear coat.
A materials deposit of half of the total cost of the mural is requested two weeks before painting begins in order to purchase supplies and reserve necessary equipment rentals.
Because the longevity of the mural is dependent on the security of the surface on which it’s painted, it is recommended that exterior walls be power washed one week prior to priming to ensure proper dry-time.
The cost for your particular project can better be determined after we’ve discussed the size and complexity of your design. As stated before, please don’t hesitate to send me any questions you may have. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to talking with you. Let’s create something awesome!
