Exterior painting

Starting a house painting job? Learn what you need about picking the right exterior house paint colors, painting yourself or hiring a home painter.

Painting - Exterior

Life seems to pass by more quickly these days. It feels like every time I turn around, I find something that needs to be fixed, maintained or replaced.

Regardless of if you are painting or staining your fence, the most important step is to clean with a pressure washer first. (Photo by Summer Galyan)

Quality materials and proper application can make all the difference when it comes so staining your fence.

Want your home's cedar shake siding to last as long as possible? Make sure it’s properly treated, stained or painted. And follow these expert suggestions.

Angie's Answers


That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.


Remember, you not only have to remove the popcorn texture, but also redo the ceiling in some other texture.

Price will depend on several factors:

1) how much the contractor you choose hates removing popcorn or textured ceilings - some charge $1 or so/SF extra just because they hate it. There are even some who bid total drywall replacement cheaper than removing the popcorn, so you have to first find contractors who are happy to do that work, or your prices will be out of the realistic range

2) if the popcorn predates about 1990, then it could likely have asbestos in it, which doubles or triples the price, and in many cases uncapsulating it with a spray coating and then removing the drywall entirely is actually cheaper than all the protective measures necessary if it is scraped off. 

3) whether the popcorn is primarily gypsum and vermiculite (comes off REAL easy) or was the plaster of paris variety, which takes a fair amount of soaking to soften it enough to scrape off

4) what type of finish you are replacing it with - if a textured ceiling, slapcoat, knockdown finish or paneling, not real problem. If you want to go with a perfectly smooth ceiling (generally a bad idea as any variations in the drywall on a ceiling surface really shows up dramatically), then it will demand a lot of care in preparing the scraped surface, and a complete surface drywall compound skim coat to smooth out the scrapes and gouges from the removal process.

5) what underlying conditions are - if there is a lot of furniture to move around (should go to adjacent rooms) or cover and work around, high-quality rug or hardwood floor to super-protect or such, will drive cost up.

I have seen costs run from as low as $0.60/SF to $1.25/SF (for removal only). Generally, remove and recoat with a surface texture of some kind (anything but smooth) and paint will run you about $2.50-3.50/SF.

Now the bad news - if asbestos containing, can run from $5-10/SF. Many homeowners in that situation go the other legal route - have it encapsulated with an asbestos-rated sealant by an asbestos contractor, then paint it and leave it for the next homeowner to decide what to do about it. Some contractors encapsulate it and then put a 1/4" thick drywall layer over it - this usually looks like a disaster unless it has a VERY rough textured finish on it, because putting drywall sheet over a rough surface like popcorn invariably means a wavy surface commonly looks like a gently rolling ocean surface.

Hair spray is one of those things that is really bothersome.  We've run into this alot unfortunately.  And NOTHING we've found will actually clean it off.  The problem is that if you just paint over it, you still see shiny spots wherever the hairspray was.

Our companie's policy is to prime the area with any bonding primer.  This will seal the hairspray in and not let it affect the next coat of paint.  It would also be a good idea to lightly sand the area first.

Our recommendation for primer would be Zinsser's BIN Spray (red can) and can be bought at most paint stores or home improvement stores.  Other than that, any thing that specifically says "bonding" for a primer should be adequate enough. 
This is a good question.  However, the question makes the assumption that there is a paint that covers everything in 1 coat, which I don't believe is the case.  My recommendation is Benjamin Moore's Aura.  Now the fine print.  Aura will cover very well because it dries to approximately twice the thickness of other paints.  However, Aura says it will cover any color in never more than 2 coats, but there are exceptions to that as well, including some deep reds.  The main thing is the color change.  If the color you are using is within the same family of colors, you have a chance, we've also had pretty good success of grey covering over tan in 1 coat, but if you're making a major color change, don't expect any paint to cover perfectly in 1 coat.

Some other 1 coat coverage paints you could use would be Sherwin Williams Duration, and Behr Ultra Premium Plus.

Hope this helps! 
Without seeing the project I'm not sure exactly what is happening.  HOWEVER, I've never heard of someone "floating" over paint blisters - just logically that can't work.  If air or moisture are trapped (because that's what causes blisters) painting over them won't fix the initial problem.

I have a couple suggestions - My first would have been to contact the paint manufacturer - whether it's sherwin williams, benjamin moore, behr, etc. to see if they would send a rep out to give their recommendation.  We have done this before starting a project to get the best possible recommendation for work to be done and have found them to be very helpful in diagnosing what is currently going on and the best way to fix it.

If that doesn't work, I would call either the better business bureau or maybe the local paper if your contractor isn't willing to work through the problem with you.  Also, If your contractor warrantied the work I might re-read that to see what they cover if anything.  

My guess is that there will have to be some sort of dispute resolution process.

Hope this helps! 

House Painting reviews in Lancaster


I had attempted numerous times to remove some wallpaper border only to discover there was more underneath. I purchased a deal for wallpaper removal.
Lancaster Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was on time and very professional. He got straight to work and after analyzing the situation, he informed me that the best way to do the job was to mud over it. So, off to his truck he went, got the supplies and back to work he went. I did have to pay extra as more time was needed to complete the job. I was very pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend him.

, the owner, came out and walked all over the property to discuss what we wanted done. He promptly sent me a quote and we discussed the date to start. As the job proceeded we found we needed an old brick planter box removed and hauled away. He gave me a fair price for the additional work which is included in the cost of service above.
He sent an excellent crew;

- Kathy G.

The owner, Mr.
Lancaster Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, sent a two man team that worked for six days, 8:00/8:30 to 4:30 every day until the job was complete. They were clean and neat and cleaned up every evening. All the wood had to be hand sanded or electric hand sanded. Strips along four big picture windows had to be replaced with redwood strips and windows resealed. All damaged wood was bonded or glued and filled where necessary. All the wood, and I have a lot on my house, was primed with one coat and then painted by brush or small roller with the best paint. They did a superb job.
- Christine R.

Provided full interior painting of our home in an excellent manner and with precision. His workers were respectful, courteous and wore shoe booties in our home. There were no spills or damage and the cleanup was superb. They get my continued service in the future.
- joseph V.

This team was very professional and prompt. We received a quote and any additional cost that was needed was communicated in a timely manner so the work was not delayed to long.
We will diffidently use them again!!
My wife and I are very pleased.
- Windle M.

We have had our house and deck washed and painted several times, but never before has the job been done as well as by
Lancaster Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. They were meticulous and careful, and did excellent work. They were careful with furniture and other items on our deck that had to be moved. They even went so far as to caulk in cracks in the deck before painting it—something no other company had done. The skilled crew arrived on schedule and our house now looks much better for their efforts.


Went excellent , very skilled professional workers who were very knowledgeable, very respectable to us and friendly. They arrived early and stayed late always at times stated. Can't say enough good things about them!!!!
- Jane H.

If you don't mind getting the inevitable upsell on the Angie's list "deal", clean up lots of overspray and drips found even after making them clean up the very obvious ones. I would expect a professional paint crew to use more drop cloths to keep paint drips off of pavers, drive way, etc. Go ahead use these guys. But I would recommend finding someone else, using your due diligence, getting three quotes, and make sure you inspect everywhere when they're done. I wouldn't recommend them or use them again in the future. I gave them an A for punctuality because, once scheduled, they did show up when they said they would.
- John R.
