1 By default, exterior painting cost calculator estimates minimum, maximum and average cost of labor to apply one coat of same color water-based exterior paint on one-story 2,500 square feet traditional ranch using airless paint sprayer. Labor cost includes basic preparation work and painting two exterior doors. Homeowners can easily adjust input parameters and estimate total labor fees to paint exterior based on house size, type and work complexity.

2 Estimated time to complete the project is an average number of days necessary for an experienced crew of painters to complete exterior painting project. Homeowners, who use paint roller or brush, normally spend much more time to perform same amount of work.

Exterior painting cost calculator is for a general purpose only and computes cost of labor with high accuracy only for standard painting projects. Application of oil-based paint on custom craftsman homes or painting multiple complex exterior house elements goes far beyond basics and such work cannot be estimated before on-site inspection. For that reason, always contact local painter to provide detailed estimate.
