Exterior painting - what is involved?

Preparation is the key to any excellent paint job. Bushes may need to be pruned or tied back, vines removed. Power washing comes first. The removal of rotten wood is next. Than scraping, caulking and priming if required comes next. Free estimates what can I expect when I call for a free painting estimate? Many call on the phone to get an idea of the cost of a painting project. Although we can give you a concept of cost, the actual estimate or bid happens when we see the site and determine the scope of work. Things that affect the bid are condition of surface to be covered, difficulty in reaching the areas to be coated, and the finish and product required. Preparation is a large part of the scope of work. With that completed, drop cloths laid down, masking as required, ladders in position, painting can begin.

What you can expect from Happy Home Painting that makes for a quality job and a pleasant experience.


Preparation begins with protection of your floors and furniture. Clean, new plastic is used to cover furniture which is often moved to the middle of the room. Carpets and floors are covered with drop clothes to protect them from traffic and paint.

Walls are repaired, holes filled and sanding as required and caulking of trim as required. Walls may be primed as required and painted to the color you have chosen in an even finish.

Furniture is moved back to the desired locations. Floors and carpets are vacuumed and swept. All of our materials are removed. You will be invited to inspect the work with the team leader.

Exterior painting

Power washing is the first step to prepare the home for a fresh new coat of paint. Loose paint is scraped, gaps are caulked and rotten wood replaced as specified in our contract. Priming as required and painting with a combination of spraying and brushing with rollers used on rough surfaces for an even finish.

At the end of each day, trash is cleaned up and ladders stored in a non-traffic area of your property. You will be invited to inspect the work with the team leader.

Pricing Contractors tend to use square footage for bidding. Sometimes for both interior and exterior work they will use wall footage to get an accurate bid as to the labor and materials. A common minimum used when bidding by square foot is about $1.00 per square foot. Anyone bidding less may be setting themselves up for difficulty in completing the work and covering expenses. When bidding wall footage, 60 cents per square wall foot is the recommendation by contractor publications and should include materials. Anything above this could be suspect. Good questions to ask are: 1. are materials included in your bid. 2. How will my home be disrupted by this process. 3. If dust is created by sanding, how is it contained and how much clean up do you perform. 4. how long will this work last.
