Without getting too technical, higher humidity makes water evaporate at a slower rate. That causes the solvent to evaporate before the water or oil, which means your paint will not fully cure.

Painting exterior trim costs $1 to $4 per linear foot. Painting eaves, fascia, and soffit costs $2 to $6 per linear foot. Trim painting may not be included in house painting estimates.
Begin by prepping your wall as previously discussed in this article. While the wall dries, double-check that you have enough paint to cover the wall with two coats to ensure even coverage.
3. Then simply the painter will add the cost for materials, overhead costs, and the margins necessary to do the job.

Generally speaking, a gallon of paint covers 400 sq.ft. of space, which is approximately the size of an average living room. When estimating how much paint to buy, remember that you may need more than a single coat and perhaps a primer, too.
The cost can increase up to $5 to $6 per sqft based on the overall square footage, the complexity of the job, and the quality of the primer and paint applied. Labor takes 75 to 80% of the overall costs of any painting projects.
5. Paint siding. Apply paint (preferably with an eggshell or satin finish) using a roller for large open spaces and a brush for more detailed work around the trim and other features. Work from top to bottom, and overlap each stroke to ensure you don’t miss any spots. After the first coat dries, you’ll likely have to add a second coat, maybe more depending on the siding material.
Since we don’t all live in single-family homes, let’s talk about the costs to paint by type of residence.
There were a couple things that needed to be done before I even started thinking about painting. Since the house was built in 1921, I wanted to check for lead. You can find lead testers in any home improvement store. I followed the directions on the label, did some tests, and found that the house was lead free! That was a relief because removing lead is a huge hassle, requiring professionals, special suits, and more tests. No thank you. If you do happen to test for lead and it shows positive, you can contact the national lead hotline, which should get you on the right track for proper removal. Fortunately we were able to bypass that entire process.

It’s very important to prep a room before you paint. This includes movie all the furniture/covering it, and filling in nail holes.
Labor and material costs vary from project to project, so house size isn’t the only thing that affects your overall price. Different kinds of paint will cost more or less per gallon, certain contractors will charge higher hourly rates, and the material of your siding will determine how much paint you have to use.
To further make the job complicated, some painters charge an hourly rate, some by square footage, some by the room, and others by the job.
Now that you’ve read through this list, we recommend looking in your neighborhood to find color combinations you like. Likewise, home styles also have a major impact on the color palette you choose. Is your neighborhood full of stucco homes or do you live in a historic residential district? Look for examples in the neighborhood that match your property’s style and home design preferences.
