The cost of painting the rail system is a question often asked at The Picky Painters. Usually, people want to paint the handrail and the newel post a dark color, while a white color for the spindles, the bottom plate, and the stringers. Going for a two-tone finish is an expensive option.
Sometimes, people want to paint a particular part of the rail system without painting the whole area. For instance, the entire thing is dark, and they wanted to paint the spindle and the bottom plate white. The pricing goes by a linear foot.
Some extras that can be added to the cost include another handrail, which can be removed from the wall. Another one is the stringers, which are the side part of the steps against the wall—some parts of the rail system that might not be included in the official pricing above.
To give you an idea of the extra cost, I will provide an example:
We have a very detailed process of converting a dark stain into a solid white color. Here’s how we do it. For a more complex process, see our blog about this topic in more detail:
Those are the pricing for painting a stained rail system. Either you’re doing a two-tone or one-color finish. Remember, the costs vary depending on different situations, so the pricing may be slightly other than what is mentioned here.
The pricing fluctuates, and the figures may not be exact all the time, especially since the cost of paint and labor keeps rising. Most paint products have increased by 30 percent over the past three years. The labor is also up by similar numbers.
