How Much Does an Exterior Paint Job Cost?

When thinking about investments, many people first think of stocks, bonds and mutual funds. But what about your home? When you purchased your home, you made an investment that you would like to protect and improve. Painting is one of the most cost-effective ways that accomplishes both, protecting your investment and increasing its value.

With so many options available in quality of materials, brand of paints, and preparation work performed, price ranges can vary drastically.

You’re going to see the exterior of your home everyday for as long as you live in it. Unfortunately, many people only focus on the initial price of the exterior painting job with the goal of finding the cheapest contractor, therefore sacrificing low-grade materials, quality preparation, warranty, and most importantly, a pleasant customer experience, which inevitably leads to regret—especially considering that unlike an Amazon purchase, an exterior painting job cannot be returned if one is dissatisfied.


Some of the most common “add-ons” found in the purchase of an exterior painting job include:

  • Stucco repair
  • Wood replacement due to termites
  • Wood replacement due to dry rot
  • Metal lath repair due to unusual cracking in stucco
