The bottom line that any homeowner is looking for when shopping around for exterior painting of siding or windows is often cost. What is the price you can expect to pay when you need your siding or windows painted? The answer is, perhaps unsurprisingly, that it depends. The variety of factors that go into determining the cost of such an exterior job aren’t many, but they are important to consider.
Condition Of The Current Siding & Windows
The current condition of the siding and windows are, of course, going to be a major factor in determining the price. Scraping, sanding, and repairs are almost always needed prior to a paint job, but not always to the same degree. Homes that require more prep work will be quoted at a higher price than homes with minimal needs.
Color Choice Makes A Difference
If your home currently has a dark colour on its exterior, and you’re switching to a lighter colour, more preparation is needed to ensure a great finished look. Certain colour combinations simply require more priming and preparation, and that does require more time and effort to complete. Dark-to-light colour combinations can result in a higher price than homes that are going from neutral-to-neutral or neutral-to-dark colour.
Overall Surface Area Matters
The size of the home will definitely affect the bottom-line cost of a Halifax exterior painting job. The size of the area that needs painting has a direct affect on the time needed to complete a job, so the larger the home, the higher the overall cost.
In addition, the layout of the yard can also make a difference in price. Homes with limited yard space or complex landscaping that requires ladders and staging will take longer to paint. An in-home estimate can determine if the landscaping in your yard will require any special considerations in painting.
The Bottom Line
Each of these considerations and more will affect the bottom-line price of painting your exterior siding and windows. Typical Halifax jobs cost anywhere from $1000 to $8000, with the majority costing somewhere in the range of $3500 to $4000.
