How much does it cost to paint the exterior of a house?
It varies greatly. We suggest staying away from online website that provides an average cost to paint the exterior of a house because we have found that these are highly inaccurate. Either they provide an wide price range that is not very helpful or a national average cost which does not reflect an average price in your area.
For example, two houses that are identical in size, can have two extremely different costs to paint. House A could have a large amount of peeling paint and could take 2-3 days of prep work prior to painting, while house B could be in pristine condition requiring very little prep work. House A would cost a significant amount more than House B due to the labor required for the project.

What is the most important thing to consider when choosing a painting contractor?
We believe the most important thing to consider when it comes to choosing a painting contractor or any contractor for that matter, is reputation.
Does this contractor have good reviews? Online reviews are a good indicator of prior customers experiences good or bad.
Do they stand behind their work? Sometimes in the remodeling industry, projects don’t go as planned. It happens to the best of us. Unfortunately, this industry is riddled with horror stories of projects gone wrong or contractors that have taken their clients money and wont return phone calls. It is extremely important to work with a reputable contractor that you can trust that your hard earned is in good hands and that they will be there during the good or bad.
Are they experienced? Your home is most likely your most valuable asset and something that shouldn’t be trusted with just anyone. The cost can sometimes double or triple to correct work that hasn’t been done correctly the first time.
Overall, it may be easy to just focus on the initial price tag associated with your project and choose a contractor that provides the best price. Although as tempting as this can be, it is extremely important to consider that there can be hidden costs associated with choosing solely based on price, that could amount to much more.

When is exterior painting season?
Our exterior painting season typically starts in April to May and carries through the end of September into early October. We suggest not doing any exterior painting projects outside of this window due to the weather we experience in the pacific northwest. With that being said, we can occasionally accommodate some exterior projects outside of the main season if your timeline requires it. These projects are strictly dependent on weather.
