As painting contractors for more than thirty years, we know that there is a huge need for staircase painting, staining as well as staircase refinishing. That’s why we include it in our services! Staircases are one of the most used parts of your home.

The stairs themselves are the first part to get damaged or worn out, causing inconsistency and a bad look for the treads. These problems are even more obvious if your stairs are stained, in which case, there will be worn out patches in the middle where most of the traffic occurs. If that’s not bad enough, the risers, stringers, nosing, and pickets are often banged and worn out as well. For all of these reasons and more, you should allow Home Painters Toronto to come in and take care of your staircase painting, staining and refinishing!

What could affect the price of stairs painting/staining?

  • • Difficulty to reach (strange corners that require special machinery to get to).
  • • How soon you want it done, and how fast you need it done. Consider that if you’re in a rush and your painting company has a busy week they might need to pay for extra hours or even move or cancel a job, and that could increase the price.
  • • Tied to the previous point, if you have a flexible schedule you can take advantage of a low season like the end of winter or the end of summer to get it done probably at a better rate.
  • • The size of the job. The more work you give to your painting company, the lower the per-unit cost. How does this make sense? Well, some materials are cheaper by volume but also, moving around less or spending more time at one job decreases all the logistics and prep work costs.
  • • Number of colours: if you can keep it to 5 colours or under, you will not see a price increase. The reason? there’s less difficulty to do the job and less paint or stain waste.
  • • Different types of paint can increase the cost. We use Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore paint so you can rest assured you’re well covered. Nevertheless, if you want something very specific or ultra-premium that can potentially increase the price.
  • • Payment terms i.e. Visa vs e-transfer. A lot of clients like to use their credit cards for many reasons, however, these payments come with a  fee that increases the overall price.
  • • The amount of preparation involved. (i.e. isolating to avoid painting undesired areas, removing plants, covering and taping). We normally don’t move your furniture and personal belongings so if you need help with that we can do it but it will add more time to the process and will increase the bill. (TIP: we can help on the spot to move some really large furniture, so don’t get hurt trying to do that and as long as it’s a fast move we’ll just do it for you!)
  • • Heights: we need to bring scaffolding and assembling and disassembling will add time, thus, increasing the price.

3. Will you include the paint, materials and labour?

Yes, we include up to 5 colours of paint (stain in this case), also all the materials to protect and prepare the walls, handrails or floors as well as labour are included.


4. Do I have to move my own furniture before the painters come?

Usually yes, painters can do it for you but that will add on the hours of your project and it will increase your overall estimate. But!, if there’s any oversized furniture that you cannot move on your own, it’s normally ok to ask them to give you a hand to move it a bit to allow them to paint.

5. How long will my project take?

Most jobs will take 2 and 5 days. But if your in a rush, inquire about our 1 or 2 day painting services.

6. How do I pick my colours?

We can suggest some of the most popular colours to get  you started from Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams. If you really need help, one of our experts can come to help you pick colours.

7. Who will you be sending to do my project?

The project will be completed by our in-house painters, who are all experienced and professionally trained (and not subcontractors).
