If you’ve decided the time has come to paint the exterior of your home in the Sacramento area, the best place to start is by getting an estimate as to how much you can expect to pay for quality workmanship. On average, exterior painting of a home in the Sacramento area costs between $2 to $4 per square foot. This means that if your home is 2,400 square feet, the cost will range from $4,800 to $9,600. For most homeowners, the final cost rests somewhere in the middle of these two extremes. .

I’m going to leave you with a few hints and tips that I’ve picked up in this project and will use on all the next paint projects I tackle:
As careful as you may be, there most likely will be a few spills during the painting process. Cover patios, decks, landscaping, and walkways to keep spills at a minimum.
First, we worked to remove all wallpaper throughout the house. There was a wallpaper border in a couple rooms, so it wasn’t too big of a deal taking it off. I basically scored the paper, wet it, then scraped it off. We did a more in-depth post last year. The main thing to keep in mind when removing wallpaper is to score well, then soak soak soak. The longer you let the paper soak up the removal spray or water, the easier it will peel off! Don’t paint over the wallpaper. Like most short cuts in home repair, it will lead to more problems down the road. Which I ran into in this house. In the dining room, I was removing the wallpaper when I realized somebody had previously painted over wallpaper. In the entire room! Which leads me to the second thing we did.
If you plan on doing this yourself, you can calculate the cost by measuring the square footage of the area you’ll be painting. If you’re simply adding another layer of the same color, you’ll only need one coat and you can skip primer. However, if you’re changing the color, you may need several coats and primer. Whatever the case, take it into consideration.

You want to know exactly what you are getting, and which candidate is offering the best deal, but things are not always as they seem on the surface.
In terms of color tones, Tricorn is a true black that falls in the neutral family. Lauded as many designer’s favorite black paint color, its lack of undertones makes it a versatile shade. This means it can pair beautifully with warm or cool tones of white, gray, or even a taupe exterior. I’ve also seen it used as a black window color with beautiful results.
