Exterior Painting Cost
When painting the exterior of your commercial property, you should know that some exterior surfaces cost more to paint because they require specialized equipment and paint. In general, painting commercial exterior surfaces is going to cost more than an interior room, simply because the workspace the paint contractors have to cover is much larger.
In determining your budget, you should look into the proper preparations needed for your specific property. For example, painting a stucco exterior may cost the most amount of money because the prep work needed is extensive and includes cleaning and filling in cracks. The paint options for stucco paint are also limited as some paint will chip or peel depending on the particular climate. Painting stucco is one of the priciest exterior paint jobs.
Here are some areas typically included in an exterior painting service:
- Electrostatic Painting
- Concrete Tilt-up Buildings
- Graffiti Removal & Anti-Graffiti Coatings
- Line Striping and Bin Marking
- Design Services and Paint Color Selection
It is still advised to use high-quality paint on your exterior, as it will have to withstand the elements, and of course, should look good. It is also worth noting that exterior paint should always be done with two coats, so make sure to take into account that the amount of paint you purchase will need to cover the exterior surface twice when budgeting your painting project. Keep in mind that one gallon of paint covers about 400 sq ft, so in order to cover a 2000 sq ft space twice, you will need around 10 gallons of paint.
Now, when budgeting, you may use a lower cost paint, around $30 a gallon, that comes out to about $300 for just paint alone. Make sure to hire a top-rated commercial painting company with top-notch painting professionals, because they will have a verifiable track record with previous clients, and will likely provide the best painting job.
