How much will it cost to paint my house?
Painting your house can be a great way to refresh its appearance and increase its value. One of the most common questions we get asked is “How much will it cost?” The truth is, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the cost of painting your house will depend on a variety of factors. Here are some of the key factors that will impact the cost of your painting project.
Size of your house
The larger your house, the more paint will be needed to cover it, and the more labour will be required to complete the job. This means that larger houses will generally cost more to paint than smaller houses. In recent times, thanks to COVID, the price of paint has increased significantly.
Condition of the surfaces to be painted
If your house has peeling or flaking paint, or if there is significant damage to the surfaces to be painted, additional prep work will be required before the painting can begin. This will add to the overall cost of the project.
Type of paint
The type of paint you choose will also impact the cost of your project. High-quality paints will cost more than lower-quality paints, but they may also last longer and provide better coverage, which could save you money in the long run. At Leogreen Painting & Decorating, we use a combination of Dulux and Taubmans products as we feel these are the gold standard in the painting industry.
The cost of labour is also a significant factor in the overall cost of your painting project. Factors such as the experience and skill level of the painters, the length of the project, and the location and access of your home can all impact labour costs.
