If you own a home or business, you may have thought about painting the exterior of your building. Painting the outside of a house can be an intimidating project and it’s important to understand how much money you’ll need to set aside for this job. In this blog post, we will discuss some simple factors go into the cost of painting a home’s exterior and provide an estimated range of costs.


How big is your house? 1 story: Start with base price of $2000 2 story: Start with base price of $3000

Condition of house? Good Condition: Multiply base price by 1.1 Fair Condition: Multiply base price by 1.2 Bad condition: Multiply base price by 1.3

How many coats? 1 Coat: No change to price 2 Coats: Multiply price by 1.3

Quality of paint? Low grade: No change to price Mid grade: Multiply price by 1.1 Top of the line: Multiply price by 1.3

Example… 2 Story House ($3000) Fair Condition… $3000×1.2 = $3,600 2 Coats… $3,600×1.3 = $4,680 Mid Grade Paint… $4,680×1.1 = $5,148
