The key to a great paint job is the prep work.  Painting the exterior of your house is a 5-step process.

Exterior Painting Process

  1. Pressure Wash – removes grime, dirt, spider webs, wasp nests, etc.
  2. Carpentry Work – wood & dry rot
  3. Caulk – we caulk all joints and seams in all paintable surfaces on every exterior project
  4. Mask & Cover – windows, brick, etc.
  5. Paint – it can seem counter intuitive, but the process of painting is actually the quickest

The biggest cost variable to the question, “What Does It Cost To Paint The Exterior Of Your House?”, is the amount of carpentry work.  Depending on how much rotten wood requires replacing, your investment can double or increase by 5-10%.  On average, I estimate that carpentry work makes up 15% of the cost of exterior repaint.

Without further ado:
