How Much Does It Cost to Get A House Painted
When hiring a professional painter to take on your home project, you want to make sure you hire someone that will make your visions come to life. With that said, you also need to stay within your budget. After determining your budget for your home project, you can compare it to the rate that each painter offers.
Painters tend to offer rates that reflect how many years of experience they have in the field and how many projects they have under their belt. Typically, painters with more experience charge more than others, but it may be worth it to splurge a bit more on your budget to ensure that your painting projects turn out exactly the way you want them to.

Variables of House Painting Pricing
The determinants of pricing depend on a variety of factors. To start, the cost of a project depends on whether it is an interior or exterior painting job.
1. Identify the scope of the painting project?
Does your entire house need to be painted? If not, this leads to the question of how many rooms or areas need to be painted.
2. What are the purposes of these rooms?
For instance, do you need your kitchen and dining room painted or your family room? In these room do you need the walls, trim, windows, doors, closets or ceilings painted, or everything? Also, the room’s use will help you access the type and quality of paint the room requires.
3. Based on these spaces, are they currently furnished and occupied?
Pricing on paint varies greatly. You can get paint for as little as $15 a gallon for a gallon of Glidden One Coat Interior Paint at Walmart to $70 for a gallon of Sherman Williams Duration Home Interior Acrylic Latex. The difference is quality, durability, ability to clean, number of coats and color. In selecting paint it is important to assess the room’s use and your budget.
5. Square Footage
In general, professional painters in New Jersey usually charge by square footage while also considering those determinants. For instance, professionals who paint the exteriors of homes in New Jersey typically charge between $3,000 and $10,000 for a single-story house. The cost of painting the exterior of a two-story home can cost between $7,000 and $12,000. As for interior projects, the price can range from as little as $800 to $2,000 based on the room and materials
Finally, when does the project need to be completed by? If there is a restricted time limit, the project may cost more to ensure it is finished by then. Clearly, there are a multitude of factors that can determine the overall cost of your painting project.
