How Much Does Exterior House Painting Cost?
The painting of your home is like purchasing a set of golf clubs or getting your hair done.
There is a range of pricing from the general set, to the high-end ultra set, to the upper echelon of the autographed (by your golf hero) set! On the other hand, if considering getting your hair “done,” my wife will testify this can also have many different variables and prices, too!
While having many variables, we will still lay out some pricing to give you some ideas to start from.
The 3 major variables when considering the painting cost of your home are:
- The texture of your stucco. This can range from the simple “Scratch Coat” that is flat with a sand finish, then the typical ”knock Down” texture, and then the Synthetic Stucco finish which really drinks up the paint!
- The height of your home. This ranges from 8′. 10′, 14′ and then 2nd stories and the few 3rd story homes in Florida.
- Third factor is accessibility. Level 1 would be complete accessibility, meaning no bushes, pipes, rails, AC units, or shutters. Level 2 has mild bushes. Level 3 has bushes, pipes, rails, AC units, and shutters. The rare Level 4 is very difficult accessibility and that could mean uneven ground or the need for a lift to get to the hard to reach areas.
Typical homes in Southwest Florida range from 1,500 square feet to 3,000.

At Burnett Painting, we have the unheard of 9 year material and labor warranty. However, if you are not interested in the 9 year warranty, switching to lower quality paint will save you one to two hundred dollars.
Speaking of warranties, when companies tell you they offer a warranty, ask yourself (or the representative of the company):
- Is the warranty in writing?
- Is it a certificate signed by the company and the paint manufacturer?
- Is your specific address printed on the certificate?
For Burnett Painting, the answer to all three is a resounding, “YES!”
We suggest, any time you receive an estimate and you are concerned with the price, just ask where the numbers come from. We believe in “win-win” situations. We are not interested in “win-lose” (or draw)! Let’s see, how we can come to a “win-win!” We’ll always be happy to tell you!
