Paint Coverage Rates & Spread Rates

Paint Coverage Rates or Paint Spread Rates: 

This Paint Coverage & Spread Rate Guide is to help estimate the quantity of paint required for a given area. Coverage is dependent on thickness of application and the porosity and condition of the surface being painted.

Please note that all coverage or spread rates listed are approximate. Coverage will be affected by the thickness of the coat when applied, application method, the porosity of the surface to which the paint is being applied, air temperature and atmospheric conditions. This listing is intended as a general guide to help estimate the quantity of paint required for a given area. 

The spread rates shown are per coat, therefore quantities should be multiplied by the number of coats required to complete the area to be painted or coated. 

We strongly recommend you read our FREE Preparation Guide which can be downloaded.
