It’s a lot of tedious and time-consuming work, and it’s usually wise to hire an experienced painter to tackle the job for you, especially for bigger jobs or jobs that require a ladder. A painting pro can provide an estimate by the square foot of your house’s interior or exterior, the level of difficulty posed by the house’s configuration, and the going rate for labor in your area. Start by researching the pros and cons of various types of paint. Then, if you’re using pro, get three estimates to make sure you’re getting the best deal. Painting a house is not inexpensive, but the right work pays off in protecting your home and keeping it looking fabulous for years to come. Broomfield Home Painting

IF you want to have textured walls or ceilings, expect to pay at least 50% more for the job per square foot: $6-7.5 per sq.ft. Interior paint really varies in price and quality. Cheap paint by brands like Valspar can cost as little as $20-30 per gallon for flat/matte paint. High-end brands, such as Farrow and Ball, that have very high quality pigments that don't fade overtime as well as unique colors can cost as much as $100-120 per gallon. However, you can get very beautiful results and lasting quality with middle of road, trusted brands such as Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore (sold at your local Lowe's or Home Depot). Depending the type of paint, these brands cost $40-55 per gallon.

I own a paintung (as does everyone else here of course), but I just wanted to mention my husband was a union painter for almost 10 years in the union, so theres really not job we cant do. With a sprayer or brush, industrial, residential or commercial. From houses to the ships that come to our local shipyard/docks. We decided to start our own business after seeing all the money he was making his company; with being one of the top 2 painters in our city. Unfortunately just days after establishing our business, COVID hit our nation. So, as we are struggling something fierce right now….we do have the skills, talent and ambition to do jobs..that we just need a little assistance finding lately.

I have used Flying Colors in the past for roof cleaning and refurbishing and painting my cedar siding. They did an excellent job then so when damage was done to my roof due to a fallen tree I immediately thought of them. I called and within a day they had someone out covering the tree and hole in my roof with a tarp to prevent rain from doing further damage. Then I needed to do serious tree removal throughout the whole property including the roof, but as soon as that was done, I called Steve Totilo the owner and within 3 days he had a crew working on the repairs and reshingling which were done in short order. The work looks impeccable and I would never hesitate to recommend him for any outside home repair or painting you might need. Broomfield Home Painting
Once you find a painting pro you want to hire, be sure to have a detailed contract that includes the scope of work and prices for all materials and paint that is being used. Find out how many coats of paint will be applied as well as the brand of paint that will be used. Most decent painting pros will use quality brands like BEHR or Sherwin Williams. The contract should also spell out the time frame to complete the project and as well as set up clean up details. Broomfield House Painting
Whether you decide to do the preparation work yourself or have a professional do it as part of your project, proper preparation makes all the difference in creating a smooth and lasting finish. Do it correctly the first time or you’ll quickly end up spending more to fix peeling and chipping paint. Follow this process before starting on your home's exterior. Keep in mind that the process may vary based on your siding materials:
Generally making a paint estimate is very difficult job yet a necessary one. Understanding key mechanics behind every quote is the basis which might not only enable us to understand nut also do estimation for ourselves. To begin with, we need to understand the basic structure and volume of the work to be undertaken. Along with the nature and type of the paint and skills set required for it must be considered. We should also carefully account for the possible “hard areas” like hose mounts etc. along with other items that are fixed. Estimate for the additional costs for example moving furniture and cleaning services after the job is done should also be added to the estimate. We should also consider the difficulties that are expected to be encountered during work e.g. high structures and ladder-based work. Cost of consumables such as supplies, cleaning tools and other materials to be used in additional capacity are also to be added to the estimate House Painting Broomfield CO
Over time, a home exterior is bound to require a fresh coat paint. There are lots of considerations when it comes to estimating the cost of an exterior paint job: the number of square feet to be covered, the level of complexity involved in terms of decorative details to work around, the type of paint you want to use, and whether your home will require one or two coats of paint are all key factors.
Thank you Chandler. This is a very useful site. I am starting to build the painting side of my business and wasn’t sure how to bid on larger jobs. Just got the call to bid on 1550 sf new construction, freshly textured, prime and paint ceilings, walls. Also paint doors, trim and baseboards. Customer bought the paint. Initial thought was to go in at around $1500, but after reading many of the comments here I think I would be more in line at around $2300. Would I be way off base with this price?

You might pay an additional $1 to $5 per square foot for optional repairs and updates. Consider having your molding, trim and baseboards checked while you have a professional in your home. This might be a good time to upgrade or repair any cracks, warps or other issues. Pros can usually touch up or replace these items for an affordable rate, and they may even package such fixups with your project.

Paint supplies cost anywhere from $10 to $100 or more depending on what you need. Painters will typically provide most of the supplies for a project, but sometimes they will allow you to pay for solely labor if you provide all the materials yourself. You might decide to do a DIY paint job down the road. In which case having these supplies on-hand will save you time and money.
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)! Broomfield Home Painting
In July of this year a ***** window screen was damaged and disposed while Prism House was painting our home. The owner agreed to replace the screen but they first tried making it themselves. Unfortunately however, this screen is so ill fitting and poorly made that it won't even stay in place without duck tape. The owner was made aware of the situation and agreed to order an exact replacement from *****. After no follow through by Prism House, I worked with ***** and then forwarded the order forms/information to them in earlier September. At this time, the owner said he would order the screen. No screen has been ordered and Prism House remains unresponsive. The second issue that I am looking to resolve is one of moisture bubbles that appeared on our side door - as soon as the exterior painting was considered complete. I have reached out the Prism House Painting repeatedly via phone, email and text message regarding both of these issues.…Read More Broomfield House Painting

Hi Jose I’m glad you like the blog. Unfortunately we don’t really do estimates for people. We offer advice (based on our own extensive experience with estimating) that can help guide you to a fair bid for both you and the homeowner. I don’t know what the price would be on your specific example, but I DO know that old wooden trimmed windows take a LONG time to prep and paint correctly. And I also know that going from a dark wood color to a white color can take 3 or 4 coats. Plus it depends if you’re switching finishes, oil to acrylic or vice versa, because you might need to apply a stain blocking primer before you even apply paint. Based on your example, I would estimate for extensive time on this job. Broomfield Home Painting
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.
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! Broomfield Home 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
I am starting out on my own and like most everyone else, I am inexperienced with estimating and pricing. I know you dont do estimates, but my question is about the pricing market in the DC area as oppose to other regions. I painted mostly in the west where the cost of living is much cheaper. How will I compare pricing from there to here in the DC area where the cost of living is 3xs as high? Broomfield Home Painting
Baldo Ambrocio has been working for us for several years and we have never been disappointed. He is a hard worker, does quality work and shows up on time. He recently replaced part of our wrap-around deck, taking out rotted wood and reinforcing it, then putting on new wood, staining and painting. He also replaced rotted railings and repainted them. We are very pleased with the results and have just hired him again to power-wash the house. House Painting Broomfield CO

A thorough scrubbing is a must before painting any exterior surface. It removes the dirt and broken-down paint residues that keep fresh coats from adhering and gets rid of mildew that grows on paint in all but the most arid climates. Most contractors clean with pressure washers, but in the hands of someone unfamiliar with the equipment, these can gouge wood, shatter glass, and drive water behind siding and trim. Using a hose, a pump sprayer, and a scrub brush is slower but safer, and just as effective. Broomfield Home Painting
Miguel Tapia the owner was outstanding. He promptly followed up his initial proposal and we reach an agreed upon price. His crew was hardworking, neat and professional. I was impressed with their prep work as the took the old paint down to the wood base. They painted around numerous flower beds without disturbing anything. I was so impressed with their work, I had them repair and paint some wooden shingles on various areas of the siding of my house. Very pleased with the work and the cost. House Painting Broomfield CO
Hi Chandler my name is Kevin. I’ve been painting for quite some time now but the bidding thing is new to me. I did learn kind of a cool trick for bidding exterior jobs though. This guy I used to work for told me count the number of openings on the house ( windows, doors, garage doors etc.) take that number and multiply it by $250.00. After you get that figure add mark-up. thanks for all the tips in this article. very helpful. Feel free to e-mail me any helpful advice.
I am quoting labor costs to paint a neighbor’s house and garage with a total of 1876SF and trying to get up to date on costs and labor hours. While reading your article I see average quantities of paint needed for trim, labor hours and costs depending on square footage, also added costs depending on window types, etc. However when I use the calculator, the labor cost lists the trim as “extra” and the labor for 2 coats of paint on the body to rolled and brushed.
Hi Dan, your pricing is definitely going to be on the high end of our pricing tables. Trimming tudor-style jobs can take a long time, especially if you’re cutting in near the body color (painting 3 sides of the trim instead of just the front). The color change is going to increase time even more because you might have to go over the trim a couple times by hand just to cover. I would bid high on this job. House Painting Broomfield Colorado
