Seeking an easy and cost-effective way to enhance your home’s curb appeal? Consider hiring a professional painter to apply a fresh layer of paint to your home’s exterior.
The cost of engaging a professional painter for the entire house falls between $2,191 and $4,505, with the national average expense for a professional paint job being approximately $3,348.
Naturally, the total amount spent on materials and labor will vary depending on your home’s size and other specific aspects of the project.
Common rates fluctuate between $1.25 and $4.17 per square foot of paintable surface, with an average charge of $2.71 per square foot.
To calculate your home’s paintable surface area (the square footage of the painting project, not your home’s total square footage), multiply your house’s exterior perimeter by its height. Measure the area of doors, windows, shutters, and other parts excluded from the painting project, and subtract those numbers from the overall area to estimate the project size.
Paintable surface areas for most homes range from 500 to 4,000 square feet. You can expect to pay between $1.25 and $4.17 per square foot for professional painting, with a national average rate of $2.71 per square foot. The project cost is greatly influenced by your home’s number of stories, as taller houses have more surface area to paint and require more labor.
