Have you been shocked by the cost of an exterior painting project?
The usual scenario is that a painting contractor visits your home and performs a walk around of the area with a measuring tape and a clipboard and then he or she leaves and is not heard from for a few days or even a week.

What is the cost of an exterior painting project?:
Please note all contractors have different back-end costs with employees, benefits and overhead which will sometimes vary proposals a large percentage.
An Eight thousand dollar exterior painting project ( $ 8,000.00) broken down over an average house repaint life span.
$ 8,000 divided by 7 years = $ 1,143.00 per year
Breaking down the exterior paint project financially over the year makes the price calculate to a more affordable project.
A quality exterior paint project on a home with all the proper preparation and quality materials should last 7 years.
We do find on some homes there may be a trouble spot or two especially were heavy water run off or water splash back occur or high heat and constant sun exposure. these areas may need maintenance more often.
