Exterior Painting Cost Estimator by Eric Barstow
The purpose of this article is to help you get a ball park price for your exterior painting estimate.
Painting companies in Fort Collins, Loveland, Longmont, and the Front Range of Colorado will all vary in prices. If you are looking for a reliable painting company, that’s fully licensed and insured, and offers warranties to guarantee their work – most of those companies’ prices will fall in the same ball park.
Exterior painting prices can range from $2,000 to over $10,000 to paint the full exterior of the house depending on several factors. We are going to consider at a few of the most important factors.
How big is your house?
1 story: Start with base price of $2000
2 story: Start with base price of $3000
Condition of house?
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… $2500×1.2 = $3,600
2 Coats… $3,000×1.3 = $4,800
Mid Grade Paint… $3,900×1.1 = $5,000
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.
As you can tell, there is a huge range of prices for painting your house.
