Hello

 

All depends what type of Paint you want to use, the Price for Exterior is between $1.50 and $1.85 Per Sq Ft. You want to add up the Sq ft of your home, Then see how many Gallons of Paint that you need. Then multiply Times $1.50 or $1.85, that will tell you how much you are going to speng on Painting your Home..

 

Good Luck

Thanks for your reply, not sure whether you meant the $1.50 - $1.85 includes the paint or if the paint is additional. Also, we have a 1924 bungalow, lots and lots of original windows and lots of trim. I'm thinking it might be higher because of that? Also, do you have any tips that I need to watch for so I know they are doing the right prep, the house has not been painted in over 20 years and some of the window trim has peeled back to the original wood.Thanks so much
