Compare Exterior House Painting Price Quotes

Over time, the elements cause exterior paint to fade, chip and peel. Homes with wood siding should be repainted every five to 10 years to repair damage and boost curb appeal.

However, exterior painting is grueling work. It involves days or weeks of physical labor, including tedious tasks such as scraping and sanding and dangerous activities such as climbing a ladder. If you want to avoid all of that, consider hiring a professional painting contractor.

About Exterior Painting

A good exterior painting job is a very involved process. The siding needs to be pressure washed, and, in some cases, areas that are very dirty of difficult to clean require hand washing. Loose or peeling paint needs to be removed, holes or gaps need to be filled and the entire surface needs to be sanded. Only then is it time to prime and apply a couple coats of paint.

A professional painting contractor might take a couple of days or a couple of weeks to complete the project, depending on the size of your home, the size of the painting crew and the weather. Keep in mind that most painters cancel a day’s work if the chance of rain is 50 percent or greater.

Cost of Exterior Painting

It is very difficult to offer general estimates for exterior painting. The price depends on so many factors, including the size and home, the condition of the siding, the number of years since the home was last painted, geographic location and the experience of the company.

Some companies price jobs by the square foot; others by the hour, the day or the job. There are many factors that contribute to pricing, including materials, labor, travel time – even company overhead expenses such as advertising and insurance costs.

  • Very generally, budget about $1.50-$3.50 per square foot. However, this is just a guideline – in some areas of the country prices can be higher or lower.
  • Looked at another way, materials generally make up 75 percent of the cost and materials make up the remaining 25 percent. For a 2,000-square-foot home, say you need 10 gallons of paint at $50 each. That’s $500 for paint, so we’ll say $1,000 total for all materials. In that case, budget $3,000 for labor and $4,000 total for the project.
  • Exterior paint varies in cost based upon quality. For high-quality paint, plan on spending anywhere from $30-$70 a gallon. If you’re concerned about the company using inferior paint or want to save money on labor costs, pick up the paint yourself.
  • Very generally – once again – a single-story home might cost $1,500-$3,000 to repaint, while a larger two-story might cost $3,000-$6,000.

A lawyer never retires. So I would just say that I am not as active as I used to be. Now I simply dedicate myself to fishing, my hobby, and my grandchildren. For Business Finance News I write about legal aspects of mortgage policies, mostly regarding the rights of policyholders. I also have articles about personal injuries.

DISCLAIMER

A personal loan is a medium term loan with a fixed interest rate that is repaid in equal monthly payments and it's usually limited to 24 months. Loan offers and eligibility depend on your individual credit profile. Our lenders can help you obtain as much as $3,000 depending on the lender, your state and your financial situation.

The owner and operator of businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and is not involved into making credit decisions associated with lending or making loan offers. Instead, the website is designed only for a matching service, which enables the users contact with the lenders and third parties. The website does not charge any fees for its service, nor does it oblige any user to initiate contact with any of the lenders or third parties or accept any loan product or service offered by the lenders. All the data concerning personal loan products and the industry is presented on the website for information purposes only.

Businessfinancenews.com does not endorse any particular lender, nor does it represent or is responsible for the actions or inactions of the lenders. Businessfinancenews.com does not collect, store or has access to the information regarding the fees and charges associated with the contacting lenders and/or any loan products. Online personal loans are not available in all the states. Not all the lenders in the network can provide the loans up to $3,000. Businessfinancenews.com cannot guarantee that the user of the website will be approved by any lender or for any loan product, will be matched with a lender, or if matched, will receive a personal loan offer on the terms requested in the online form. The lenders may need to perform credit check via one or more credit bureaus, including but not limited to major credit bureaus in order to determine credit reliability and the scopes of credit products to offer. The lenders in the network may need to perform additional verifications, including but not limited to social security number, driver license number, national ID or other identification documents. The terms and scopes of loan products vary from lender to lender and can depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the state of residence and credit standing of the applicant, as well as the terms determined by each lender individually. 

APR REPRESENTATIVE

APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is the loan rate calculated for the annual term. Since businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and has no information regarding the terms and other details of personal loan products offered by lenders individually, businessfinancenews.com cannot provide the exact APR charged for any loan product offered by the lenders. The APRs greatly vary from lender to lender, state to state and depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the credit standing of an applicant. Additional charges associated with the loan offer, including but not limited to origination fees, late payment, non-payment charges and penalties, as well as non-financial actions, such as late payment reporting and debt collection actions, may be applied by the lenders. These financial and non-financial actions have nothing to do with businessfinancenews.com, and businessfinancenews.com has no information regaining whatsoever actions may be taken by the lenders. All the financial and non-financial charges and actions are to be disclosed in any particular loan agreement in a clear and transparent manner. The APR is calculated as the annual charge and is not a financial charge for a personal loan product. 

Late Payment Implications

It is highly recommended to contact the lender if late payment is expected or considered possible. In this case, late payment fees and charges may be implied. Federal and state regulations are determined for the cases of late payment and may vary from case to case. All the details concerning the procedures and costs associated with late payment are disclosed in loan agreement and should be reviewed prior to signing any related document. 

Non-payment Implications

Financial and non-financial penalties may be implied in cases of non-payment or missed payment. Fees and other financial charges for late payment are to be disclosed in loan agreement. Additional actions related to non-payment, such as renewals, may be implied upon given consent. The terms of renewal are to be disclosed in each loan agreement individually. Additional charges and fees associated with renewal may be applied. 

Debt collection practices and other related procedures may be performed. All the actions related to these practices are adjusted to Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulations and other applicable federal and state laws in order to protect consumers from unfair lending and negative borrowing experience. The majority of lenders do not refer to outside collection agencies and attempt to collect the debt via in-house means. 

Non-payment and late payment may have negative impact on the borrowers’ credit standing and downgrade their credit scores, as the lenders may report delinquency to credit bureaus, including but not limited to Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. In this case the results of non-payment and late payment may be recorded and remain in credit reports for the determined amount of time.
