How Much Does It Cost to Paint a House?

Yikes! How much is scraping, sanding, and prepping for paint really worth?

Yikes! How much is scraping, sanding, and prepping for paint really worth?

It’s that time again! Time to paint your house! And if you’ve ever scraped, sanded, repaired rot, scraped some more, and primed in the summer heat, and then finally slapped a coat of paint on before the first frost, odds are you’re considering hiring it out this time. Maybe you’ve gotten a bid or two, and maybe one seems suspiciously low or ridiculously too high. So how do you know when you’re getting a steal of a deal or just plain ripped off? Simple: you check with Assistimate! Assisimate can provide an estimate with fair market costs for material and labor, including to scrape, sand, prep, prime and paint. We have access to going rate for painting in towns all across the United States. Whether you have wood siding, metal siding, brick, block, or stucco, it’s paintable and Assistimate has access to the going rates. So that leaves one tough, unanswered question: what color?
