A fresh new coat can go a long way in improving your home’s curb appeal and increasing its value. Repainting your home can cost around $ 1,000 to $4,000 in Mesa AZ, excluding discounts and promo offers. Also depending on the size of your home, the cost can rise or decrease.
Moreover, there are many other factors that can affect the price such as labor, brand and type of paint, and the possibility making repairs on your interior or exterior walling systems prior to repainting. In any case, calculating how much it cost to pain your home will let you know what to expect from a professional estimate and stay on top of your budget. Today on the blog, we have listed some factors when calculating the cost for repainting your home.
Find the finished area
Measure the area in your and multiply it by the height of your house. This is applicable if you want a full repainting job for your home. However, if you only want to paint the exterior of your home, you can do the same only to the area you that you want to paint. Once you get the measurement, multiply it with the painting contractor’s cost of painting per square meter.
Find the paintable area
If you are painting a couple of areas in your home, including interior and exterior, get the total area of your home and subtract the area of doors, windows, and other areas that are not included in the painting. If your balconies, gables, or ornate architectural designs, you may need to call a professional to give you an accurate estimate.
Majority of the cost of painting a house comes from labor. Most painting contractors will charge you between $25 to $200 per hour to paint a house. An experienced house painting expert will know how long it will take to complete painting a whole house and will divulge it in the cost estimate. A good painting contractor will not charge more than the average time to complete painting a house. Note that regional price difference is also related to the overall cost of living in a certain area.
If the surface of the area we are painting is in bad shape, we will need to repair it before it can be painting. Proper prep work will ensure the paint is going to stick 10 to 15 years from application. Experienced professionals will advise you of the necessary preparation to be done before the painting job begins.
The materials of your home, whether you’re painting your interior or exterior, will matter in calculating the cost of painting your home. Wood and vinyl siding can cost $1 to $2 less per square foot to paint compared with other materials because it is less porous. But porous materials like stucco and concrete may cost more because they will require more paint. On the other hand, other materials like metal, iron, or chrome will require specific types of paint which will also matter. Need a professional painting contractor for your project?
