You are probably wondering, “How much will it cost to paint my house?”, or you at least are trying to set a budget. Normally, if you ask a painting company that you will get an answer like “It depends but we’ll give you a free estimate” to avoid the question. Of course, it depends, and you know that in order to get a true, accurate price we will need to come to your home to do a thorough assessment. This doesn’t mean we can’t at least give you a good idea of how much to budget for your upcoming painting project. These prices aren’t meant to replace an in-person estimate, but hopefully this will help you budget.
Below, we give a picture of a fairly ‘standard’ or “average” project that we feel is representative to help you determine where your own home or project may fall. Please remember that some projects will fall below this range and some will be above this price range.
Single Family Century Home
Lakewood, Ohio City, Cleveland Hts, Berea
Common traits include wood siding with moderately peeling paint. Homes like this often have three colors. These types of homes usually have lead-based paint so the EPA requires certain precautions. The average price is $8,000 – $12,000.
Large / Ornate Century Home
(Lakewood, Ohio City, Shaker Heights, Chagrin Falls)
Homes like this are often larger and are beautiful homes in some of the inner ring communities. These homes often have some peeling paint and a lot of detail work. They usually feature 3 or even 4 colors. Average price is $12,000 – $20,000+.
Cedar Sided Wood Home
(Westlake, Avon Lake, Strongsville, Brecksville, Beachwood)
These homes are newer (often built in the 1970’s-1990’s) and feature cedar wood siding. They require a lot of caulking but otherwise not a lot of prep work besides a thorough wash. They require applying a coat or two of a top-quality solid color stain. The average price is $3,500 to $6,000.
Aluminum Sided Home
(Rocky River, N. Olmsted, Parma, Fairview Park)
These homes were often built in the 1950’s – 1970’s. Aluminum siding does not require a ton of prep work besides a two-part wash and caulking. We refinish aluminum siding with a specific spray painting application for the best results and back our work with a 10-year warranty. Average price is $3,000 to $6,000.
Small / Regular Deck
(Avon, N Royalton, Solon, Everywhere)
Standard size deck around 10×15 with a basic railing. Decks like this may have a solid color or semi-transparent stain. The average price is $750 to $1,250.
Large / Irregular Deck
(Avon Lake, Medina, Chagrin Falls, Anywhere)
Larger decks or mulit-level decks will definitely cost more to get washed and stained. The amount of railing is a significant factor affecting the price. The average price is $1,500 to $3,000.
We’ve tried to make a basic guide for interior prices for you here. There’s a lot more questions that go into an estimate for interior rooms, so please keep in mind these are just for reference and may not be considered an actual quote price. Some factors that might influence your quote are, but are not limited to: products, condition of walls, colors, amount of trim, doors, chair rail, crown, or number of windows.
$125-$140 per opening
(Things that factor into price – previously painted?, changing hardware?, how smooth is the current finish (how much sanding is needed)?)
Standard Bedroom (10×12)
Medium Size Room (Living Room/Dining Room) (18×12)
Walls Only: $400-$700
Of course no two foyers are the same but when we have to bring in ladders and work on stairs it is typically more difficult work. The average price is between $1,200 – 2,500.
To paint the walls, ceiling and trim in a typical kitchen the average cost is around $1,000-$1,800.
