Exterior painting and staining costs
The cost to paint the exterior of a house can be between $1,000 and $3,000*, while deck staining can cost up to $1,000*. It all depends on factors including the size of your property and the quality of the surface to be painted or stained.
Exact prices vary by contractor and the materials used, but brick tends to be one of the most expensive surfaces to paint. Prices start from $3 to $4* per square foot, although staining is cheaper.
Exterior wood painting is less expensive than brick at around $2* per square foot, but you may need to pay more if the surface needs cleaning or sanding first.
Average prices are similar to wood, and a professional will be able to prepare the surface correctly so the paint won’t peel off.
Stucco often has an uneven texture that makes it harder to paint, and prices reflect this additional labor. Costs usually start from around $3* per square foot.
