Thank you so much for mentioning the importance of drop cloths when painting a house exterior. After inspecting the new home I purchased, I realized that the owner didn’t pay much attention to the outside paint job and wanted to give it a fresh coat. However, the yard around the house also has a wide arrangement of flowers and bushes that I wouldn’t want to ruin. With that in mind, I’ll make sure we have proper coverage when I get an exterior painting service to help me out, just so we can keep the paint on the house and not on the flowers.
We had such a great experience with this company and team of painters! From the time of our appraisal to the time of walk-through everyone was articulate, professional, courteous and real. Our house was the center of attention in my neighborhood during the process...all my neighbors watched and praised the team for their detail in the preparation, the completed product and how the team worked so incredibly well together, a "well-oiled machine" as one neighbor put it. So impressed, one neighbor contracted with them on the spot to do some work for him! It was a pleasure working with this company from start to finish! .

I’ll be remembering the bleach trick for stained ceilings – the previous owner of my house was also a smoker, and I’m hoping the staining wasn’t so bad that it will seep through as we just painted straight over.
Finally, it’s time to apply your paint! Here are a few tips for paint application:

The Phinney Ridge Painting website has a catchy homepage with sliding pictures of different home painting themes. The designers have played around with the text fonts throughout the page to create special emphasis on certain words. Some texts are larger, of a different font color, italicized, capitalized or bolded, but this inconsistency doesn’t hurt the design theme.
wow – I’ve never done any sort of intense painting like that before (as a renter) but it just goes to show that there is so much to consider that I wouldn’t have thought of. Thank you for laying out these steps like this!
Next, multiply the number of paint gallons calculated above by the price per gallon of paint you want to use for the project.
Interior and exterior paints need to stand up to entirely different menaces. Paint on the interior of your home will need to be cleaned or even scrubbed. Exterior paints need to be resistant to weather and sun damage. Both exterior and interior paints are a combination of pigment, solvent, resins, and additives. The solvent in paint keeps it liquid and spreadable until it dries on your wall or trim. Latex painting dries more quickly because its solvent is water. The solvent in oil-based paints is mineral spirits, which takes more time to evaporate. Once the paint is applied, the solvent evaporates, and the resin allows the paint to adhere to the surface. Various additives in paint give it desirable characteristics, like moisture and scrub resistance.
Painting a townhouse costs $1,000 to $4,300 on average, depending on the size, siding type, and the number of stories. Painting a townhouse only includes the front and back walls because most townhomes share one or both sidewalls with neighboring units.

Another way that homeowners can calculate the cost of house painting is by the average cost per hour or per day. Professional painters have rates that vary between around $35 and $45 per hour for the average home; this price per hour does not include the cost for paint and materials, however, which will need to be added into the total cost. The average cost per hour will also vary depending on the type of painting that needs to be done; exterior painting, for instance, costs more than interior painting on average.
