Another tip! If you’re painting textured walls, even edge lock tape won’t always do the trick! You can put the tape on the wall and then go over the edges with a thin stripe or PAINTABLE clear caulking! One part will come up with the tape, the other stays on the wall under the paint, and keeps the paint from seeping under the edge of the tape. Just remember to keep it thin so you don’t see it on the wall! Hazel February 25, 2015
Late spring, summer, and early fall are the best times to paint a house exterior. Painting in the fall or early winter is ideal in southern states that stay warm year-round. Optimal painting weather is warm and dry.

Whether you’ve just moved and are daunted by tackling paint projects that haven’t been touched in decades or have lived in your home for a while and need a color update, these next few tips will help make your older home painting project more manageable.

When you have the square footage, divide it by 350, which is the amount of square feet that a gallon of paint can cover on average. But consider it may vary between 250 and 400 square feet. A gallon of primer can cover 200 square feet on average, so if you want to know how much you’ll need, simply divide the interior square footage by 200.

It’s recommended to put aside 1% of the purchase price of your home annually to cover future repairs, including painting. To save on painting costs, consider these tips: Only paint accent walls to change the look of a room at a fraction of the cost. Do the prep work yourself, such as moving furniture, dusting and cleaning the walls, removing outlet covers, and laying drop cloths. Do the cleanup yourself, such as removing the drop cloths, and moving everything back into place. Combine multiple painting projects at once to get a bulk rate discount. Let contractors buy the paint since they get it cheaper and typically stick to high-quality paints that last longer.
These guys are wonderful. They work hard and quickly and pay fierce attention to detail. They are eager to please and help in every situation. They recently painted my home and suggested some minor changes in carpentry which made my life easier. It looks gorgeous. They also did some interior work on a former house I had 5 years ago. Same great result!
Cost will be on the lower end of the range when less preparation and repair is needed. They’ll be on the higher end for small homes and when more prep and repair is needed.
