For metal siding, use medium-grade sandpaper on a sanding block. Sand any chipped or peeling paint until the surface is smooth. Remove any chalking or dust with a clean rag.
According to Fixr.com, the national average for a 1,500 square-foot house is $5,170 (including minor prep work). Pricing fluctuates based on the type of siding on your home. For example, a 1,500 square-foot home with engineered wood would cost between $1,500-$2,000, while a stucco home comes in much higher at $4,800-$6,500.

I knew right off the bat after talking to James for 10 minutes that I could not go wrong if I hired him. I was correct his team did a wonderful job painting the exterior of my home.

Hi! Thanks for putting all of your projects on here – I refer to them often! I have a quick question on this one – we’re getting ready to spray our brick house and we’re not sure how to deal with the roof. Did you cover it at all? Or were you just suuuuper careful not to overspray onto it? June 4, 2021
If you have a large painting job, we can also complete the project in stages to make it more convenient for you and to help spread out the costs over time.
Wow, you all are hard at work! Major take home- don’t skip the foundation, which is thorough preparation and cleanup. It definitely makes the end result a satisfying one. Thanks for the tips & Happy Wednesday 🙂 Kristin Cook February 25, 2015
