Costs for exterior painting in the North Texas area, according to Cipro Contractors:
We’ve created this guide to assist you because many individuals want to understand our prices so they may better plan their project budget.
The costs listed below are simply averages, thus several factors, such the following, could have an impact on the final price:
The cost will depend on how many surfaces we’ll be painting. Will we, for instance, paint your trim? Shingles? Decks? Clapboards?
The cost of preparation depends on the state of the surfaces we’ll be painting. We’ll need to add more labor if there are several dents, scrapes, and holes.
We’ll need to add more labor hours to your quote if there are numerous dings, scratches, and holes so we can fill and sand them.
Do we need to fix any rotten wood before painting? Our team of carpenters can replace any rotten wood you may have on your home in the North Texas region. Because the moisture in rotten wood will cause the paint to decay extremely fast, usually within a few months of painting, it cannot be placed over those surfaces.
Because painting a first and second story is simpler than painting a third or fourth, the height of your home is important. More work will also be needed to access high regions that require complex ladder maneuvers.
Do you intend to change colors?
It will take more coats of paint to cover over the original hue if you’re painting your exterior a significantly darker or lighter shade. In general, if the paint is the same color as the surface paint we’ll be covering, we’ll quote projects with 1-2 coats. We’ll need to apply a tinted priming layer first and then 2-3 top coats in order to provide good coverage and prevent the old color from seeping through the new color if we’re painting your exterior a completely different color (for example, changing the clapboard color from brown to beige).
Our designer, who works with you to select exterior colors that complement your town and area while also making your home stand out and appear “put-together,” is one element whose cost won’t be affected. If you decide to hire us as your painter, this service is free.
Here are some examples of our pricing utilizing average North Texas homes.
With these prices come the following assumptions:
Prices for clapboard and trim include one top coat of paint and one spot priming (priming only those parts that are “raw” or have been sanded, filled, or prepared).
