I need the deck floor boards painted. It's approx 4m x 8m. The floor boards are already painted and need a refresh. The floor boards are facing the wrong way with the grooves facing upwards. I will need someone to help move furniture also. I need some who is a good painter.

Hi Susie. I am an ex carpenter and have renovated several homes for myself. Have built decks and also painted, stained and oiled them. The boards being upside down will take extra paint and of course labour to do correctly.

My offer takes into account painting decking boards 1 coat, appropriate equipment, airtasker fee (15%) and of course helping move any furniture. The cost of the paint is not included. Am currently available next week from Tuesday mid morning. Thank you. Mike.

Hi Susie you will probably need at least two coats, so that's 32m2 x 2 is 64m2 painted for $102 nett. That works out to be $1.60 per square metre which is very cheap but you'll need to use a brush because the ripples are facing up. It works out to be less that $10 per hour. That's assuming a the prep has been done such as pressure wash etc. I'm not sure that your budget will attract a "good painter". I'm a deck specialist. I paint and oil decks nearly everyday. I couldn't do it for that price sorry.
Susie your msg was edited to remove phone number. If you accept my offer we can swap details and arrange inspection. Any changes to offer can be worked out then. Mike.
Next Friday would be ok currently. Yes i would need to look at the job first thanks Susie.
Hi Susie, we carry our own equipment and once you accept a quote we can trade details and sort out a meeting time
Hey just wondering if you got the paint? Im free tomorrow if that works for you.
