EXTERIOR HOUSE PAINTING ESTIMATE SCOTTSDALE ARIZONA

EXTERIOR HOUSE PAINTING ESTIMATE

Quick and simple house painting estimate tips for your home. Here are several factors to consider.

  1. Size of the Home
  2. Type and Condition of Exterior painting surfaces
  3. Brand of Paint
  4. Method of Application – Spraying or Rolling

HOW MUCH PAINT TO USE

  1. Measure the Perimeter - Measure the Perimeter (the LENGTH OF EACH SIDE) of your house in order to determine how much paint will be needed on your home.
  2. Measure the Height  - then measure the Height of your Exterior Walls.  If your home has gables, just add two feet to the Height of your walls since you will need that much extra painting material to cover them.
  3. Multiply the Total Length (Perimeter Distance) by the Height -  Total Length x Height = ?
  4. Divide #3 by the Paint Coverage – divide the total of #3 by the square footage coverage which is specified on the paint can label.  This will give you approximately the number of gallons you will need to coat your home one time.

EXTERIOR PAINTING SURFACE

Remember, for your house painting estimate –  bare stucco or bare wood will typically require twice the amount of paint used to cover an already painted surface.  You should also properly prep any surfaces which have lost their paint, thus adding to the total paint or primer you will need.

NOT ALL PAINTS ARE MADE THE SAME

Price and quality can vary widely with house paint.  We highly recommend using a medium to high quality paint on your home, depending on your budget.  It will both cover your home better and last longer.  Also, if you are using a painting contractor, make sure you watch them to make sure they are not water down the paint.  This will increase their profits since they have to use less paint but will lower the quality of your paint job.

SPRAYING VS. ROLLING

Paint sprayers are used by professional painters since they can quickly paint a home with them.  However, paint sprayers use more paint then is required when utilizing paint rollers and brushes.  Painting a home with rollers and paint brushes is very time consuming.
