Exterior Painting

Exterior Painting Is For The Pros

Improve Home Value While Protecting Your Largest Single Investment

An exterior paint job, as much as a headache as it can seem, is actually one of the most rewarding home improvement projects you can complete.

 

Benefit #1  

You will increase the  value of your home. The estimated return on investment is 51% according to a 2015 study by Realty Times  while Consumer Reports claims enhancing your homes exterior, including paint touch-ups, can increase home value by 2-5%. 

 

Benefit #2 

Protect your single largest investment for many years. We have high humidity, soggy rainy seasons, and extreme high temperatures. All these lead to rot, mold, termites, siding issues, split caulking, swelling, and numerous other problems. A paint job is the first line of defense against weather.

 

Benefit #3 

Improve curb appeal. There's nothing like brand new paint on a house.  That's the closest your house will ever look like a new build home. The  difference between an old faded house and a recently painted home is like night and day.  Everyone will notice the difference. 

 

Keep in mind though that exterior painting can be one of the most daunting projects to take on yourself. You have a "LOT" of area to paint that will need to be properly prepped prior to applying any paint. 

 

Not to mention there's high ladder work, power washing, scraping, priming, and carpentry work. And these are just the basics. You may have to remove shutters or storm windows. You don't want to get paint on the roof. You don't want to get paint on the driveway. It goes on and on.

Frequently asked questions

How much does it cost to paint the exterior of a house?


The cost to paint the exterior of a house depends on various factors:

  • square footage being painted
  • the height of the house
  • paint grade being used
  • items being painted--ex. shutters, window trim, doors, etc.
  • zip code of the house
  • warranty length
In the San Antonio area expect to pay anywhere from $1.41 to $2.79 per square feet of surface area being painted. You can check for yourself by going to Homewyse.com and eneter your information.




Is it better to spray or brush and roll when painting on the exterior of a house?


Brushing and rolling is more physically demanding than spraying out a house. Due to the roller skipping after a while, it requires 2 coats to obtain an even looking finish. Have you ever tried rolling paint on an interior wall? Then you know you have to roll again to cover up evenly that first coat. Spraying allows for a more even application of the paint the first time so it makes the job move faster. Following manufacturer instructions on tip sizes, the proper thickness of paint can be applied without any worries. If working with a paint company that knows their craft, either process will work fine. Keep in mind that a reputable company will stand behind their workmanship with a lengthy warranty period. That's what you are really seeking--peace of mind that the paint job will last. Any warranty below 5 years may not be worth the investment.




How long should an exterior paint job last?


It all depends on how much sun (UV rays) your home is exposed to and if you have proper water drainage. If you look around your house you will notice that it fades unevenly. The back side may look worse than the front or vice-versa. You may also notice around gutters serious discoloration and possibly wood rot. When selecting the grade of paint, it is important you select a grade that will hold up against the elements for as long as possible. It may cost you a little more upfront but it will last longer on your house. Would you rather be painting every 5 years or every 8-10 years?




Is primer required to paint the exterior of a house?


Primer should be used on:

  • exposed bare wood
  • when the existing paint is not sound
  • metal siding or surfaces
Think of primer as the glue that holds together the surface being painted and the new paint.




How long does it take to complete an exterior paint project?


Most full exterior paint projects, depending on the size of the house, take about 4 days to complete. If there's wood rot repairs involved then add another 1-2 days. During Winter months the temperature should be hovering about 40 degrees when the paint is being applied and up to 3 hours later. Most high quality paints today can be applied down to 35 degrees.
