Exterior Painting Cost?

Thinking of the cost of exterior painting
How much will exterior painting cost?

Summer is here!  All the grilling, gardening, backyard-baseball, porch sitting, and other fun activities brings us outside. 

With all the extra time outside, you begin to notice the toll winter has taken on your house; new damage that wasn’t there last season; a crack here, some peeling there… like a slow drip… an exposed board, fading colors.

It is clear you need to paint this year, give us a call for a free detailed estimate, but if you just want a ballpark price for the Cost of Exterior Painting, continue on.  

Estimates from any reliable, professional painting company, fully licensed and insured, offering a warranty to guarantee their work will fall in the same ball park.


How big is your house?

1 story: Start with base price of $2000

2 story: Start with base price of $3000


Condition of house?

Are there exposed boards, lots of peeling paint, or other areas in need of repair? (this will be somewhat subjective on your part here, but let it be known that we are very objective and precise when determining this during an estimate)

Good Condition: Multiply base price by 1.1

Fair Condition: Multiply base price by 1.2

Bad condition: Multiply base price by 1.3


How many coats?

1 Coat: No change to price

2 Coats: Multiply price by 1.3


Quality of paint?

Low grade: No change to price

Mid grade: Multiply price by 1.1

Top of the line: Multiply price by 1.3



2 Story House = $3000

Fair Condition… $3600 × 1.2 = $3,600

2 Coats… $3,600 × 1.3 = $4,680

Mid Grade Paint… $4,680 × 1.1 = $5,148


If your home was built before 1978, it needs to be checked for lead paint. If your house does have lead paint on it, your price will increase by 2x-3x due to the EPA regulations on lead paint procedures.

When you get an estimate from Touch of Class Improvements, we will walk you around your house and identify all of the problem areas on your house. We’ll also make several recommendations, and educate you on what your options are.

We believe it’s important for you to have options, so we’re happy to write up different options for your painting project so you can see what will best suit your needs and your budget.
