We painted this house in June, 2016. There was new siding on part of the house, which made the job easier. The colors were the same which also made the job easier.
Preparation involved scraping loose paint, priming bare wood and caulking any crack where rain could get in. Then we pressure washed the house.
After the house dried, we painted it by spraying a heavy coat of paint on the siding and brushing two coats of paint on the trim. The invoice came under estimate, so we saved the owners some money. Everyone was happy with this paint job.
In 2016 we painted the exterior of 9 one story houses that were newer than 1978. The average price was $2570.
