Exterior Painting Costs & What are You Paying For?

power washExterior painting projects take a lot of time and effort to produce a high-quality and long-lasting result. The best exterior painting projects can last upwards of 10 years while a sloppy job may have to be redone in just three years. The professional home painters at your local ProTect Painters have years of experience providing a beautiful paint job to homes' exteriors. An exterior painting project is not just a one-time cost but a long-term investment put into your home. Here is a comprehensive breakdown of the ProTect Painters' home painting services.

Prep Work

You’ll often hear professional painters say that prep is 90% of the job. And it’s true. The prep work phase is the foundation of each exterior painting project. Our house painters pay tremendous attention to detail throughout this phase that includes:

  • Protecting the landscape and areas not being painted
  • Power washing
  • Sanding and scraping loose and peeling paint
  • Caulking gaps
  • Removing and replacing rotted wood

All of these steps help clean and prepare your home's exterior for a fresh coat of paint by removing dirt, chalk, chemicals and mildew spores to ensure the highest-quality and longest-lasting bond between the exterior paint and your home. We also include priming your house in the prep work phase.


The amount of coats necessary to paint your home will depict how long this process takes as well as working around the weather conditions. Our expert house painters will suspend any work if the forecast predicts a 50 percent chance of rain or higher or if the humidity exceeds 85 percent. This is to ensure the strongest bond and forgo the weather-related problems that negatively affect a home long after the project is completed.

Final Inspection

After a thorough cleanup of our tools, protective tarps and tape we take the homeowner on an extensive final inspection that encompasses every detail of your home and gives you and us an opportunity to catch any touch-up areas or additional clean-up tasks.
