2018 Exterior Pricing

Houses Built 1978–Present

I figure the price to paint your home starting with a visit to Zillow. From there I put in your address to find the square footage of your home. Then I simply multiply the square feet by one of these six base rates. Smaller homes always have a higher ratio of siding to square feet of house, so here are my 2018 base rates. This price is usually all-inclusive, including the paint and tax, but I include a list of everything included, as well as the unusual things that could add to the base price in my first email to you.

  • 1200–1499 sf @ $2.34/sf
  • 1500–1799 sf @ $2.24/sf
  • 1800–2099 sf @ $2.13/sf
  • 2100–2399 sf @ $2.02/sf
  • 2400–2699 sf @ $1.92/sf
  • 2700 sf up @ $1.81/sf

Things not included in the base price would be decks, fences, shutters, large porches and detached garages.

Houses Built Before 1978

The EPA does not accept do-it-yourself lead testing as valid. Expect to spend $300–400 for a professional lead inspection (from a company found online), if you have peeling lead paint.

We will no longer be scraping or otherwise removing lead-based paint on surface areas in excess of 20 square feet, due to the complex rules and stiff fines associated with the new lead paint laws. Home owners can scrape their own houses without legal ramifications, and we would be glad to take it from there. There are also lead paint abatement specialists on Angie's List that we could work with.

Our base price for these older homes can quickly escalate to $3.00/sq. ft. on floor space if there are wide eaves and lots of detailed trim, and more than 2 main colors involved. Wood windows are not included in the base price (@ $69/each individual window), nor are detached garages, decks, fences, shutters, dormers, and large porches.

Various Items Not Included in the Base Price

  • A 2 stall detached garage typically adds $840 (2 coats)
  • Deck tops add 95¢/sq. ft. (2 coats)
  • Deck vertical rails add $2.48 each (1 coat)
  • Fences add 63¢/sq. ft. (one side, 2 coats)
  • Shutters $30/pair (2 coats)
  • Dormers add $105 each
  • Large porch ceilings add $1.41/sq. ft. (2 coats)
  • Porch floors 63¢/sq. ft. (1 coat)
