Expect to pay between $600 to $3,500 or $1.25 to $3 per square foot to coat vinyl, with prices likely increasing for the finish. It is one of the more inexpensive siding materials to have repainted, especially with recent innovations in materials. Changing the finish on your siding is not recommended unless it's completely degraded and worn away by the weather. You can save nearly half the vinyl siding installation cost of $4 per square foot by painting rather than replacing. Before adding a new coat to vinyl siding,
hey there, i’ve been painting for years working for a guy who ripped us off at any given moment… but thats another story. anyway, long story short me and my friend are starting up our own business and have not done any estimating before. thanks so much for putting up this great info. i just have a question about where you say square footage. it says 1500 square feet you would charge 1800-3000. my question is, would that be total square footage of the house or wall sqaure footage? I just went to check out a house today that was 1900 square feet that had two bedrooms, two baths, 2 walk in closets and a laundry room and an electrical room with a open concept kitchen living area, with 12 foot ceilings throughout most of the house. so there is alot of walls is what im getting at. not looking for what you would estimate for the house, just wondering if you are taking the square footage of the entire house or the walls? hope to hear from you soon! and thanks again for all the info you already helped us with Broomfield Home Painting
Exterior paint averages $25-$40 a gallon, and a 3,000-square-foot home takes 15 or more gallons of paint, or $375-$600 just for the paint. However, really premium paint can cost $50-$100 a gallon, or $750-$1,500 for that large home. Doing it yourself also requires renting a pressure washer or sprayer for $50-$100 a day; extra-long ladders or scaffolding at $20-$75 daily; and a power sprayer for $50-$100 daily, plus masking tape, drop cloths and other supplies. However, it's possible to paint a large, two-story house for materials-only costs of $400-$600.
How do you feel about using a sprayer versus rolling paint on? Do you really save that much time with a sprayer and increase your profitability? In my experience I found that my time is better spent by rolling on almost immediately. It can take a lot of time masking off and covering everything. Sometimes a whole day. Besides you still have to back roll, you still have to cut in and do trim with a brush. Typically I also save on the amount of paint used. Your thoughts? Thank you. House Painting Broomfield CO
My husband and I decided that we wanted to update our deck to have a modern cable railing...our house is very "treehouse" like, sitting high up in the words and the new cable railing really opens up the view. The guys striped the deck of its old paint and got started on taking down the old railings--they actually added an extra 6" around the perimeter of the deck to serve as a better support for the new posts that were put in and what a difference! Johnny and Robert, who worked together on the labor intensive deck, are truly artists.....cutting perfect curves into areas of the railing where we have a large boulder in our yard and using their creativity to further enforce our deck--talk about attention to detail! Its really hard to believe that we're living in the same house and thanks to Rome, there was never a time when I felt stressed or pressured to make a decision. I can't forget to mention that Rome is very reasonable when it came to giving us a quote for the entirety the work we had done, we were VERY pleasantly surprised!! Broomfield House Painting
Hi Mensah, we see all ranges of pricing for exterior house painting, but usually the pricing falls between $1.00 – $1.50 per square foot. Which means the price would roughly be $2,500 – $3,750. Please keep in mind that prep-work and other factors play a huge role in the cost. Also the quality of materials, ladder placements, drastic color changes etc. Broomfield House Painting
06/14/17: Renato completed an exterior painting project for our relatively large single family home in Stamford, CT last weekend. Project did not begin well especially with the prep, repair/carpentry work, but then Renato took full control and ensured that the work done was to our satisfaction. The final result is outstanding. Minor damage to window screens, gutters and plants. Ensure that your window screens, gutters, and shutters are numbered and stored indoors or if kept outdoor covered properly against the elements. The project can be extensively delayed due to rain and you may find yourself dealing with insects and/or flooding in basement and dirty/bent/ mismatched screens/gutters/shutters. Overall we had a good team working on our project and we are satisfied with the finished product. The house looks great! Broomfield House Painting
My husband and I hired Rome and his crew to paint the exterior of our home and we couldn't be happier with the finished product! We purchased a Contemporary style home that was built in 1985 and what was once a gloomy, sad shade of a blue/grey, in desperate need of a facelift. Now, this house really feels like a "new" home (complete with an updated deck...read on for more)! House Painting Broomfield Colorado
Hi Conaz, good question. There’s a really good breakdown of all painting equipment (cost, supplies list etc.) here . As far as your other costs, I would break it down into categories, similar to how an accountant would do it: Marketing Expense, Insurance/Workers Comp., Gas/Mileage. Once you’ve discovered this monthly overhead you can determine your markup. We always try to make 40-50% gross profit on a paint job before any other expenses. Your net profit will be determined by the size of your business. For example, one painting company with 40 employees may only have a net profit of 10%, but a smaller operation; One owner and one crew may have a net profit of 35%. You should decide beforehand what you want to make per job, factoring in all your costs, and then create a consistent bidding process to make what you want. House Painting Broomfield CO

You can expect to pay between $700 to $3,000 to paint wood siding. You’ll end up spending $1 to $3 per square foot, but typically you’ll find this material is cheaper than brick or vinyl. Wood requires some type of sealant, be it paint, stain or oil. Lumber takes well to a wide variety of coverings giving you endless options for modern, contemporary or classic looks. Some things to consider when choosing wood:
Hi, I have a house that I’m bidding on, it’s huge about 12.000 sq ft of wall space and 20 -24 ft ceilings many holes to patch from pictures being hung ,that’s just the main, there is also a 3 room in law . The nice part its all going to be one color, off white so spraying is the way to go just have to mask the windows.The outside is mostly vinyl siding so power washing will do but it is 3 floors and has some wood trim that needs to be addressed. Nice part no sanding on inside or out just a little scraping.If I use your formula for pricing looks like about 25 k .Does this sound in the ball park? Broomfield House Painting
Flying Colors is wonderful! Steven Totilo is incredibly responsive and professional. He provided a detailed contract upon assessment of my home and was very communicative throughout. The team of painters he employs are kind and incredibly skilled! They did everything from power washing, priming, painting the entire house, trim, doors, and gutters, and light carpentry work to replace damaged cedar and trim in just a few days! They worked diligently throughout the heat and were very kind and communicative. The painters did a beautiful job! I appreciated the carpentry work which saved me from sourcing a contractor/carpenter myself. We used Flying Colors about a year ago as well to paint our kitchen and the gentleman on the job was the very same that came to paint my house - and he remembered me! They did a wonderful job then, which is why I reached out to Steven for a much bigger project. The price point is very reasonable for a young person like myself to afford, one of the more reasonable I encountered in searching for a painter in the Stamford area. All in all, a job very well done. If I ever need painting done in future, Flying Colors will be the first people I reach out to. Thank you so much for your work!
Hi Paul, square footage is a big factor, but to ball-park a 4bd 2 bath in poor condition, it could be anywhere from $1.50 to $2 per sq foot with heavy prep. If we say it is 2,500 sq ft. a good price could be between $3,500 – $5,000. That can seem expensive to some people, but again, heavy prep work changes everything. It also depends if you are doing the FULL interior; Walls, Base-boards, doors, is it coverable in 1 coat etc.
- Go for neutral colors. Every person has their own color preferences, so there is no point in trying to impress with the trendiest hues of the current year. Instead, go for time tested, classic and neutral colors, such as beige, taupe, cream, shades of grey, off white. If you want to add more color on an accent wall, shades of blue, green, or warm earth tones always have a nice general appeal. Broomfield Home Painting
I have a wire fence with wood posts every four feet. A guy I know painted it. It took 4 gallons of stain but he can’t figure what to charge. I want to be fair, so any clue to a fair price? if I provided all materials stain and equipment and he did pressure wash the fence to prep it after 3 days he was half done, so on Sunday I was off work and painted the other half in 6 hrs using half of the 4 gallons.
