House painting

Figure cost out. Paint should represent 15 percent of total. Paint averages 400 sq ft per gallon. Average cost of quality paint equals 40.00 per gallon. One coat is not a paint job, and anyone who offers lifetime warranty is counting on not living more than several years! Spend a lot of my time doing redoes over new paint jobs!

He pressure washed the house. Our home is 106 yrs old w/bad paint or no paint.Scrapped, primmed, caulked all windows and doors. Painted the house and will do the trim in a second color. This will be completed in 3 days he says. Is this Price to high? My dad said it is way to expensive, but I have not paid the full ammount yet.

Painting Professionals. They did a fabulous job with a crew of 4. We had them paint 4 colors. Fair Price we had 3 bids they were in the middle but had Insurance and very friendly and prompt. Have recommended to several friends with same results. Sherwin Williams Resilience paint satin finish is what they recommended. Love the results.

I had the exterior of my home painted by Perea Painting in Orange County California at low cost and quality work (They had a special going on for Exterior house painting which made them really reasonable). These were REAL painters from Orange County. Their services were quick and left the exterior of my house looking great. Thanks for the estimate calculator!

Didn't pressure wash the home prior to painting. Contracted for one coat. Missed a lot of spots in shingles crevices and complained that because the wet paint was the same color as the dried paint he couldn't see where he painted which resulted in a lot of touch ups. Still not perfect, and doubt he would come back to fix areas I noticed were not painted after he left.

Home is strange 3 stories from back but one story in front - home is built into hillside , around here a REALLY tall home, some painters wont do the house because they dont have ladders tall enough so it was difficult finding someone willing AND reasonable in price - Pressure wash , Sherwin Williams Loxon primer,then Sherwin Williams Super Paint all around.

Spray guns are crap for domestic house painting. Way to much overspray it gets on everything. Anyone who says spray gun is the way obviously uses one and therefor won't put it down in any way. I'm a painter 20yrs in the job and I own 2 spray guns top of The range and hounestly they are crap. That's why it's expensive for a good painter. $10,000 American for 3000 sqm with a spray gun is robbery!!!

I'm a painter in Vancouver, BC, Canada and just finished a small cedar shake house over the last few weeks. It blows my mind how cheap people expect to have work done. My prices are in the lower-mid range in this city. Two coats sprayed on the body/soffit and two on all the trim.

Spraying offers a much thicker coat then brushing . You cant get mill built up with a brush . Some paints can be sprayed at .14 to .15 mills. Compare that to a brsuh of .2 or .4 mill.
I do not know hwo writes these articles but maybe they should consider using a real paint contractor and not field test from various painters. There are tons of painters out there but only a few painters.If you dont get this then your one of the tons.

I have an Arts and Crafts house with a lot of trim and detail. I was estimated anywhere from $2500 to $10,000. With a little apprehension, I went with Bill McHenry's College Pro Painters in Midland since I was on a budget. I shouldn't have been nervous at all - they did a great job, used SW Duration paint and did the expected prep work. It took them 1.5 weeks with 5 guys who worked all day. Painting is expensive, but the finished product is well worth it!

It is not true that spraying leaves a thinner coat. It depends on the size of tip and also if it is back rolled it actually leaves on more paint plus its a much better job, without lap marks from an old fashioned brush. I have been a Home exterior sprayman for 35 years.

this home is a 1910 colonial home and I have been getting prices from 12-15,000 to paint this home--Why are your prices so much less in cost? I mean 5,000 seems low for a 3000 sqft home. Is that based on a one-story at that price and then basically double that for the additional story??
