Only asking because I painted houses, businesses and just about anything that didn't move for years. Come to think of it I did paint things that moved as well
But one of the best ways is to ask around. See if anyone around you has used a painter. Don't ask at the local bar/pub everyone is a painter in them. Unless it's a high-end bar/pub then someone might know a good painter.
I haven't painted in 10 years so far as pricing, I have no idea but I'd say today prices might be around $45 per man hour if not more. Depending on the company, so $40 plus if it's a company that pays its employees well, has health insurnce for them. Plus their own company vans etc.. You'll find people that will do it cheaply, but remember you get what you pay for.
Going back 10 years a room about 15 feet by 12 feet could run you about $800 to $1,200. That would depend on the condition of the walls, how many windows, and doors.
Any other questions just ask and I'll help out if I can.
worth a try
You know what, you can check out https://www.painttalk.com/ I use to be a member there. I wrote a couple of programs to help others with estimating, employee, and equipment costs. You might get some help there and the members are from all over.
Most of them don't even know what a 5 in 1 is or what size nap they should use. A smooth wall, use a 1/2 inch nap and you'll get that good old orange peel look. I've seen that a lot over the years.
