Exterior House Painting Pricing

How much does it cost to paint the exterior of my home in Baton Rouge?

Painting your home is like buying a car (but hopefully not that expensive!) or buying new furniture. Not only does an awesome paint job say a lot about you, but it’s also a big investment that deserves a lot of consideration. Just like buying a car, you typically get what you pay for—so you want to consider a few factors going into it—like who the manufacturer is (the paint), who made it (the painter), and what condition it is in (the prep).

Every home is different, and can require a different amount of prep or different types of coatings. While several variables are involved, we will try to lay out some examples of homes in the area that you can compare to. All pricing examples are based on powerwashing, extensive prep, & two coats of a high-quality exterior latex paint.

3 of the Major Variables to consider that impact the cost of painting your home:

  • The Condition of the home; is there peeling or bubbling paint? Is there chalking on your siding?  Perhaps the original caulk hasn’t lasted and the home needs more caulking than average.  Every home will have its own requirements at the Prep stage of the job.
  • The Height of your home; 2nd story homes or homes with sloping landscaping can be more difficult to access and paint, requiring more labor.
  • The different Substrates present on your home; Stucco walls are more costly to paint than siding, as stucco has varying textures and “drinks up” the paint. Are your windows vinyl/metal or wooden?  Wooden windows have to be prepped and painted, compared to other types which require very little maintenance.  Functional shutters, beadboard ceilings, French doors, etc. can all add to the cost of painting your home.
