Safety is an important component of painting the exterior of your home. To ensure things proceed smoothly and with the utmost precautions in mind, equipment rentals are necessary. The less expensive option of the two is scaffolding which can be rented on a per-day basis for a nominal fee. For more extensive jobs, many companies opt to secure a boom lift which can be rented for an average cost of $1,000 for the week.
Let’s start by looking into what goes into calculating the cost from the painter’s perspective. Of course, this process might differ from one company to another, but we believe it would give you a good general idea on how painters come up with a quote. .
This was a really thorough and great post! Thanks for taking the time to share with us. Now I want to get to painting… amy February 25, 2015
This page of Costimates brings together the total cost to paint a house including materials and the labor required to prep it and apply exterior house paint. Important factors that affect exterior painting cost are listed to help you determine where on our spectrum your price will fall. To improve the accuracy of your exterior house painting estimate, we check and compare costs from other online estimating services. We also include submissions from homeowners around the country on their total cost, for you to compare.
Cost will be on the lower end of the range when less preparation and repair is needed. They’ll be on the higher end for small homes and when more prep and repair is needed.
Some walls in your home need to be repainted more frequently than others due to daily wear and tear. For example, if you only eat in your formal dining room a couple times a year during the holidays, you probably won’t need to paint the walls as often as those found in your kitchen, hallways, or bathroom. Painting Tip! Drywall repair prior to painting over dings and scrapes is often necessary. Professional painters also suggest paint with an eggshell sheen as it is great for hallways with a lot of foot traffic.

We started Partnership Painting Inc in 1984, and we are your Premiere Pasadena painting company. We met in elementary school and learned about professional painting from Scott's father, a high school industrial arts teacher, who painted houses in Los Angeles during the summers. We learned not only how to paint but the value of painting - whether it is a small residential project or a large commercial building - we paint projects as if they are our own! Since starting Partnership Painting Inc, we have completed over 8,000 painting jobs.
Our team of painters did a great job on the exterior of our 2-storey house. Luis, Simon, and Pancho were courteous, detailed, friendly, communicative, careful, clever, and did amazing work perched upon very tall ladders for 10 days. The office team were also responsive and friendly. I'd recommend them to you.
Ever walk out of your door and wonder if you’ve taken a wrong turn and ended up in a swamp? The summer humidity in the South has a way of doing that.
As for actually using the sprayer, the main thing to remember is to not overcoat with paint. Two or three quick passes will minimize drippage as opposed to trying to get a full coat on all at once. (Which I learned the hard way. The first room I painted was so drippy droppy, we had to do some extra sanding once it dried. I felt so bad!) Only by actually using the sprayer will you get a method down. By the time I was done with the sprayer, I felt like a pro and actually had fun painting!

Significant prep work such as scraping, sanding and priming resulted in a bright, classic color combination of yellow and white.
For exterior painting jobs, you may have to deal with a few repairs beforehand. For older homes, damaged siding can make or break a painting project. Whether you have a small crack or a large gaping hole, it's important to have a professional deal with it before you begin painting. Most siding contractors will charge between $40 and $75 per hour to repair house siding.
It’s no surprise that we are thrilled with Superior Painters for the second time in two years. From first contact about a project through the finished product, everyone through our door has never been anything but professional, clean, friendly, and hard working. It’s one thing to have a project completed nicely, it’s another for the experience to be pleasant from start to finish, with an outstanding outcome. Our new home is absolutely beautiful. Painting was quick yet done to perfection. Painters finished the walls and ceiling flawlessly, cleaned, and helped move furniture back to its original positioning. We have no question about who to go to for future home projects, big or small. Thank you Michael and the team!!!read more
Less furniture means less time spent moving and covering items in your rooms. Accordingly, this means a cost savings of a few hundred dollars per floor you choose to paint.
