The term ‘wall covering’ is understood to mean covering the walls with a matte or glossy latex paint, the purpose of which is to preserve the natural structure of the wall and to remain visible.
What does it cost to have walls painted?
Of course you can try to make your wall yourself. But why not outsource the job to a painter for a reasonable price?
A painter ensures that the sauce work is delivered perfectly without you having to worry about it. If a painter has to paint larger areas, the m 2 price will of course be lower than when whitening smaller pieces.
Walls and ceilings of sauces
Both the walls and ceilings in a living room or bathroom can be painted. Whitening walls by means of sauce work can be done in two different ways.
You can do this yourself on the basis of a fur roller or you can have this done by a recognized professional painter from the Stuc-Gigant.
Painting the walls or whitening the muren sauzen ceilings can be done using an airless paint sprayer.
The work will be done faster this way and the result will be better. Afterwards you cannot distinguish any stripes or bands, which is often the case with hand-sauce. We try to explain more about both ways here.
Sauces with the paint roller
The precautions you must take are the same as those for any other paint job. You must cover the floor well and ensure that the walls you want to sauce are free of dust and grease.
Even the walls are not very different from a standard paint job. It is of course the intention that the walls will get stripes or stripes.
How do you do this? By taking the right pre-treatments with a primer.
You cover the walls with the thinner paint by moving the roller over the walls from left to right and from top to bottom. Distribute the paint well so that you do not create strokes with the roller.
In this way you minimize the chances of stripes and jobs.
Let walls spray with latex paint
he principle of the airless paint sprayer that we use is simple but very effective. The paint used for this is exceptionally thin.
The paint is sprayed onto the walls or ceilings in two to three layers. The paint is sprayed onto your walls under a pressure of around 180 bar.
All this happens without air, hence the name of the paint sprayer. ‘Airless’ means ‘without air’. The result is a wall that looks like new with an exceptionally sleek wall finish .
Price per m 2
What are the costs for having the walls of your home sauces? The standard prices for the sauce work are in most cases calculated per m2.
If you want the walls to be painted white and this is possible in a layer, you will spend on average between 8 euros and 10 euros per m2.
If you want to have the walls painted in a color, you can count on an amount between 10 euros and 14 euros per m2. Having colors applied is often done in 2 layers and so some walls have to be taped again in order not to paint them with the color that is meant for another wall.

Sauces over wallpaper
