How Much Does it Cost to Paint a House?
There are many factors that come into play when trying to determine how much it will cost to paint your house. Whether you have an exterior or interior painting project in mind, the size of the area to be painted will affect both the amount of paint you will need and the price you’ll pay for labor related to prep work and painting. Other variables that can drive your costs up or down include:
Quality of Paint Products
A high-quality paint will typically cost more, but this choice can pay off in the long run because premium paints are likely to look better and protect your home longer than inferior paints. If you live in the Southern United States, you’ll undoubtedly want to invest in a fade-resistant paint that can stand up to intense sunlight. At Southern Painting, we use only top-caliber paints from Benjamin Moore®, Sherwin-Williams®, and PPG Pittsburgh Paints®.
Generally speaking, you may save money if you paint your house the same color as its existing shade. If you want to brighten up your home with a lighter shade, more paint may be required, thus increasing your project costs.
The height of your multistory home or an interior cathedral ceiling could add to your project costs if extra equipment and safety precautions are needed. Likewise, if your home has a lot of molding or trim to be repainted or replaced, that can increase your costs.
At Southern Painting, we know our customers need to understand how much it will cost to paint their houses before we get started. We offer a detailed, written estimate for every project we undertake, based on a thorough inspection of the job site, a consultation about colors, and other factors that can affect the final price tag.
