How Much Does it Cost to Paint a Two-Storey House?

There’s a lot that goes into painting a house aside from just taking your paint brush or paint roller to your walls and applying a coat of paint. When determining the cost of painting a two-story home, there are several factors to consider that will determine how much you will ultimately pay.

What Factors Affect the Price of Painting a Home?

Consider these factors that influence the cost of your home painting job.

Size of the home. The more surface area that must be painted, the more the project will cost.

Preparations involved. Depending on the condition of your home, the surfaces that need to be painted may require a lot more prep work to ensure they’re ready for a coat of paint. For example, there may be holes that need to be filled, dents that need to be patched up, or unevenness that needs to be sanded down. Only then can the walls be painted.

Decorative features. Surfaces that are more ornate and have unevenness of them or tight crevices will require more delicate work that may be more time-consuming than your average flat wall surface. The more decorative features your home has that need to be painted, the more you can expect to pay to have your home painted.

Products used. Different types of paints are higher in quality than others. If you choose a higher-quality paint, you’ll be paying more overall for the project. There are also other products that may have to be used that can increase the price, such as scaffolding to paint high walls or ceilings.

How Much Does it Cost to Paint a Two-Storey House?

The average cost to paint a two-storey home can range anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 or more for the walls only. A much larger home that has extra-high ceilings, intricate and ornate features, and requires a lot of pre-work can easily go over this price range.

That’s because there’s a lot more work involved in painting this type of home versus a smaller home with low ceilings that needs little work to prepare the surfaces for painting.

Of course, there are other spaces and surfaces that will likely need to be painted as well. These include:

• Trims
• Doors
• Baseboards
• Window frames
• Ceilings
• Closets
• French doors

Why Use Professional Painting Services?

After hearing about how much it can potentially cost to have your home painted, you might be tempted to try and paint your home yourself. But there are plenty of reasons why you shouldn’t, and why you should instead hire the professionals to tackle this job for you:

They use high-quality paint. Professionals use the best quality paint products for all projects. They come in a variety of tones to suit your tastes and decor style, and are resistant to fading.

They take care not to damage any surrounding items and features. No matter what items may be present, professional painters will take care not to damage anything. They use things such as drop cloths, paper covering, and netting over shrubbery if you need your home’s exterior painted. And once the painting is done, they’ll ensure a thorough clean-up job to leave things in better shape than they were before they got there.

They’re used to working at high heights. Depending on how high your walls are, there’s a lot of ladders and scaffolding that are involved. Working at such heights can be daunting for many homeowners. Instead, professionals have the experience to handle working with these heights with ease.
