  • How much does it cost to paint the exterior of a house?
    Please check out our 'How much will exterior painting cost' page for a detailed breakdown.
  • Is it better to spray or brush and roll when painting the exterior of a house ?
    Brushing and rolling is more physically demanding than spraying. Due to the roller possibly skipping after in use for a while, it requires 2 coats for an even looking finish. Have you ever tried rolling paint on an interior wall? Then you know that you have to go back and cover up that first pass to get an even finish. Spraying allows for a more even application which makes the job move faster. Following manufacturer instructions on sprayer tip sizes, the proper thickness of paint can be applied without any worries. If working with a painting company that knows their craft, either process will work just fine. Keep in mind that a reputable painting 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. Anything below 5 years may not be worth the investment.
  • How long should an exterior paint job last?
    It all depends on how much UV rays your house is exposed to and if you have proper water drainage. If you look at your house you will see that it fades unevenly. The back side may look worse than the front or vice-versa. You may also see around gutters serious discoloration and possibly wood rot. When selecting the grade of paint, it's important you select a grade that's going to hold up to the elements 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 glue that bonds the surface being painted and the new paint.
  • How long does it take to complete an exterior house painting project?
    Most exterior paint projects, depending on the size of the house, take about 4 days to complete. If there's wood rot repairs involved you need to add another 1-2 days. During winter months the temperatures should be hovering at about 40 degres when the paint is being applied and up 3 hours afterwards. Most high quality paints today have an application rating of 35 degrees.
