How Much Does It Cost To Paint A House In Catawba County
Find The Cost Ranges For How Much You Might Invest In Painting Your Home In Hickory NC
A home is the largest investment most people make in their lifetime. It’s where you grow your family, make memories, and live your life with loved ones.
This is why people invest so much in how it looks, especially with the paint. People mostly paint their house when the paint starts looking dull or faded, it cracks or peels, or they simply want a new color.
That’s when people start asking ‘how much does it cost to paint a house?’
As a professional painting company, we’ve been getting this question from clients since we started in 1991. You can find out how much painting your home can cost (and why) right here.
The Cost To Paint Your House
It usually costs anywhere from $13,000 to $53,000 and up to paint the entire interior and exterior of a home with 2 coats of premium paint. This includes labor, materials, and equipment. The cost changes based on factors like size and complexity. Repairs for any damaged areas can be included too.
House Exterior Painting Costs
The cost to paint a house exterior is usually between $3,000 and $10,000 for 2 coats of premium paint. This includes labor, materials, and equipment. The size and complexity of the project change how much it’ll cost. Any repairs can also increase the price.
How Much It Costs To Paint A House Interior
The cost to paint a house interior usually ranges from $3,600 to $12,000 and higher. This includes labor, materials, equipment, and 2 coats of premium paint. The size and complexity can change the cost as well as if any repairs need to be made before painting.
Factors That Affect The Cost To Paint A House
Size is one of the biggest factors. The more there is to paint the more materials, labor, and time it’ll take.
The quality of the paint does too. Low-end paint costs about $10 per gallon and lasts about 2-5 years on an exterior. High-end paint is about $45 per gallon but lasts 7-10 years or longer.
The skill of the painting crew can affect cost drastically. Professional painters can cost about $45 per hour but you won’t have to worry about inferior quality.
If your home has any damages, these need fixing first. Damaged areas will only get worse over time and that means you’ll need to repaint much sooner.
If Your House Has Lead-Based Paint
Due to EPA laws concerning lead-based paint, grinding and mechanical sanding of potentially lead-based paint cannot be done.
Any renovation work on the exterior of a house built before 1978 that requires 20 square feet or more to be disturbed must be completed under the new EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) guidelines designed to contain the “dust”.
All work must be performed by a Certified Lead renovator. CCI is certified and we will follow the guidelines.
We will give you a copy of the pamphlet for your signature and educate you on lead paint as we are required to.
