    Painting twenty fence boards in London

    Painters & Decorators

    I have twenty fence boards in my garden that need to be painted. I am located in London. How much will it cost me to hire a professional painter to perform this job? Also, I have a pet dog who loves to spend time in the garden? We can keep her inside when the paint job is taking place but once painting is finished, how long after should we wait before letting her back outside? She’s very curious so I’d just be worried that she might start sniffing it or taste it just after a fresh coat of paint has been added!

    "I depends on weather you want the painter to supply materials or if you want to pay them on a day rate or price. If I was doing this job I would supply the fence paint and give each panel two coats for £400"

    "Hey there due to the amazing great British weather you would need a couple of dry days for the fence to be painted
    Regards to the price you would be looking at around £300 - £400
    And I would suggest leaving the fence at least 2/3 hours to dry properly before letting the dog out on its own anyway maybe take him out on the lead so he knows what's going on as it's his house also.
    Hope this helps"

    "It would cost you roughly 280 pounds. If you use a water-based fencing paint your dog will be fine."

    "Hello their, I would say if it took the day to do would most probably cost £170 in labour and it depends on what paint you going to use or want to use as the all have different drying times"
