What should a typical cost be (per square foot) to repaint my house?

There are several factors that are important factors to answer your question.

1)  How much preparation of the surfaces is required?

Is the current paint solid?  Is the substrate firm and not water damaged?  Are there blisters, cracks, or is there any peeling of the paint?

2) Are all areas of your home accessible?  How many stories high is your home?

Taller houses that are difficult to access require more set-up time and therfore increased costs.  If additional aerial equipment is required there is additional cost.

3)  Are there wall areas that are difficult to access?

Any areas of your home above shingled roofs on an unwalkable pitch may require scaffolding and staging or aerial equipment to gain access.

It seems that prices are so expensive I want to be sure I am not taken advantage of.

We would be pleased to provide a written estimate to repaint your home.  You may feel free to compare our price with anyone you wish.  We compete on quality using our premium products and superior craftsmanship.  If you are seeking the lowest price, you will not select our company.  There is always someone who will paint your home for a lower price.

What is the difference in having one coat versus two coats?

We only use Sherwin Williams premium paints.  These paints offer excellent adhesion, UV degradation protection, and extreme durability.  In our climate, most homeowners repaint every 7 to 10 years.  These products provide the manufacturer’s warranty against cracking, peeling, blistering or fading.

Spray or roll and why?

Does your home have lap siding?  T1-11 wood panels?  Brick veneer?  Cement-fiberglass siding?   Is your siding type composition hardboard siding? (Masonite)  Different materials are better suited to different application methods.  We advise as to the best suited method, but ultimately the customer’s preference determines the method which also may affect the cost.

Detailed dental moldings or soffit treatments are almost always best suited for spray techniques.  Confined areas are better suited for application using a brush.  Rough surfaces are better suited for application with a thick roller.

If you have other questions, please contact our office.   We’d be pleased to make an appointment at your convenience to assess your needs and provide additional recommendations.
