How long does it take for exterior house painting jobs to complete?

Q: How long does it take for exterior house painting jobs to complete?

A: The answer depends on the size of the home, the type of material the home is made out of, the prep work that is needed, same color or color change, and even the weather can be a factor.

The condition of the exterior will impact how long it takes your home to be painted; the more prep work that is involved the longer it is going to take. Power washing, siding replacement, scraping (due to peeling or bubbling), spot or full prime, and even changing the color all take time which will add to the length of your project. Peeling, fading, and bubbling are just a few examples that your house is in need of some good old TLC. Addressing these things quickly will greatly reduce the chances of anything bigger happening.

Finally, the weather is an important factor in how long it takes to paint an exterior. Rain, snow, sleet and cold temperatures (below 45 degrees) are not ideal conditions and you should not have a painter (or any other trade for that matter) working on the exterior of your house. Depending on how much rainfall there is you should consider giving your house a day to dry out after a storm before continuing the work.
