Costs to paint the House Exterior

Many professional painters in Melbourne, will do the costing estimates of the house exterior painting considering the following factors;

  • Existing condition and the age of the house
  • The material used to build the house
  • Scope of the project, whether it is individual sections or the entire house exterior.

The exteriors of the house involve painting the roof, eaves, cladding, windows, fascia boards and gutters. From our painting services estimates in Melbourne, the cost of painting the exterior of single-storey home anywhere between $2500 to $15000. It might seem steep for you as an investment, but it should be noted that, once professional painters in Melbourne have worked on the exterior, it would be another 5-7 years before you repaint it. Hence, investing is an economical one. Besides, the amount of prep work needed to get a good finish and the material of the house are significant factors adding to the final cost.
