Curb appeal isn’t all about the walls. Other outdoor features — such as trim, doors, and gutters — need new paint every once in a while, too. Painting these parts of your house along with the siding can give the whole exterior a clean, put-together look.
If painters charge hourly, speed will be an essential pricing factor. Most painters cover 80 to 120 square feet of flat surface per hour, or about the size of a small bedroom. This is after all the furniture is moved out and the prep work is completed.

"After searching the CCO page for painters and recommendations, I gave Josh with A Painters Touch, LLC a call. Josh had planned on having a day for himself but after telling him that this was the second time I had cleared the room to be painted only to be stood up, he stepped up to knock out the job and within an hour the room was on it's way to a new color. He was prompt, courteous, neat, professional and did a fantastic job. If you have any painting or pressure washing needs I would highly recommend giving him a call. Thanks Josh for a job well done!"

When using a roller to paint a large wall, if you don’t do it right you’ll end up with lap marks where you paint over a part of the wall you previously painted. To avoid them, make sure you overlap the places you painted previously before the paint has dried.
Just as there are different types of paint, there are different types of primer, each with its own price point. Whenever possible, you should use a primer with the same base as your paint (i.e. oil-based primer with oil-based paint or latex-based primer with latex-based paint).
For the average eight-hour work day, painter prices per day range from $200 to $800. This pricing option is best used for smaller paint jobs that only take one to two days to complete. A painter’s day rate varies depending on how far they have to travel to get to your home and your location. It’s important to note that most painters usually don’t like to charge by the day because there is room for error when estimating how long a project will take. For example, they may be done much quicker than anticipated, or the job may take far longer than anyone thought. Either way, you’re left overpaying for services, making the estimate less accurate.
For the best and longest lasting paint job possible, you’ll want to apply a layer of primer before the paint itself. Primer creates a base for the paint, seals pores in the wall, and makes stains easier to mask.
Working from dry areas backwards into wet areas as you make your way across the ceiling, be certain that you're working in areas narrow enough so that you can maintain a wet edge at all times.
When painting a window, begin with the muntins and then paint the stiles, rails, head casing, side casings, and sill. If the window sash is operable, open it so it won’t be sealed shut.
