The hourly cost will usually be per-painter, per-hour, so a home that requires multiple workers will have a severely increased rate.
Use thick cotton drop cloths to protect bushes, decks, patios, porches, walkways and anything else that you don’t want splattered with paint.
To estimate the amount of paint you'll need for the trim, estimate the length of total trim. The average trim width is six inches. Multiply the total trim length by 0.5 feet. To estimate the gutter, determine the total length of the gutter. One linear foot of gutter approximates one square foot.

Can't say enough good things about these painters. Mr. Lee's team of O, Jeff, and Chris were exceptional. They started the exterior painting with prep on Saturday and finished including touch ups on Thursday. Well worth it. The house looks amazing with neighbors stopping to ask for their information.

The invention of the first broom, and then the vacuum cleaner, revolutionised home maintenance, turn... Can I Get Away With Avoiding Primer When Repainting My Walls?
Wow, you really got down and dirty, I am seriously impressed when I hear people like yourself really learning and trying it yourself. Makes me feel like a slacker.
