How to Estimate the Cost of Painting the Exterior of Your Home


Painting the exterior of your home is a great way to refresh its look. Here's how to estimate the cost:

  1. Measure Your Home's Exterior: Start by measuring the square footage. This will help determine the amount of paint needed. An average home may require 10-20 gallons of paint.

  2. Price in the Paint: The cost per gallon varies by brand and type, with most high-quality exterior paints ranging from $50 to over $100 per gallon.

  3. Factor in the Prep Work: The cost of preparation materials like sandpaper, caulk, and wood filler. Extensive scraping, sanding, and caulking can add $2000 to $6000 in labor and materials to the project.

  4. Calculate Labor Costs: Estimate the time required to complete the project and multiply by the contractor’s hourly rate. Professional painters typically charge between $75 and $110 per hour.

  5. Total Estimate: Professional exterior painting services generally cost between $1.50 and $4 per square foot. The final cost will depend on the size of your home, the type and quality of paint, the complexity of the project, and the extent of prep work needed.


By following these steps, you can get a clear idea of your exterior painting project's cost and make an informed decision. Get your home looking great with a fresh coat of paint!
