Measure the areas you are going to paint, and then convert to square feet.
Surface Coverage (per gallon)
Exterior Rough 90-110 sq ft
Exterior Smooth 375-475 sq ft
Interior Rough 120-190 sq ft
Interior Smooth 420-490 sq ft
These numbers will assist you in determining the amount you will need for the first coat. If a second coat is required it usually requires about 2/3 as much paint.
You will want to have your painting contractor/vendor confirm these numbers based on their product’s coverage as amounts may vary depending on the type of paint selected and the painting application technique used.
