KC Exterior House Painting Services
A quality exterior paint job seals and protects your home from moisture and mildew, dry rot, and other damaging effects from the rain, wind, sun, and snow. Between the harsh winters and the hot summers, your home or building’s exterior is bombarded with temperature differentials, lots of UV rays, and moisture.
The most common issue we see from lack of routine painting maintenance is wood rot. In some cases, wood rot repair is extensive and can cost thousands of dollars. Quality, routine painting with quality materials can prevent wood rot and save you money.
Committed to Getting the Job Done Right
The most important part of painting your home is the preparation work. Good “prep work” can be (and usually is) the difference between painting your home every four years or every eight or nine years (or more in some cases). Ask any painter that gives you an estimate how they prep a house before painting and have some follow up questions to get into what they’re doing deeply (don’t settle for a “we scrape and prime” answer, everyone will say that). It is an easy thing to cut corners on prep and you want to be able to trust that what is underneath your paint is going to hold up well for years to come.
Frequently Asked Questions
On average homes we paint take 3.5 days. Small, 1 level homes can be quicker and take 2, depending on the condition they’re in. Large multi level homes with lots of trim (such as those in Westport or Brookside) can take 1 to 2 weeks.
The time it will take to paint your home will depend on the condition your home is in, your expectations and needs, and the size of your house. Our estimator will be able to give you a good approximation of the time it will take to paint your home after meeting with you.
This varies widely based on home, condition, what you want, etc…Our average project price in 2021 was around $6,500. This average includes all materials and often wood rot repairs. Smaller homes we work on can be between $3k and $4k and larger homes we’ve worked on can be $20k or more.
We understand that everyone has a different budget and our recommendation is that you provide us with as much information as possible so that we can get you a project that accomplishes the things that are most important to you within your budget. Let our estimator know what your budget is and we’re confident that we can provide you with options to work in your budget.
It depends on the surface we’re painting.
Over the last several years, we’ve not performed any brush and roll only projects. Brush and roll only takes considerably longer and is therefore considerably more expensive. If you are thinking you’d like brush and roll only, talk to you estimator about why and we can always price it as an option for you.
Spray and backroll is necessary when the surface being painted is porous (like an open grained wood) or dry (like stucco being painted for the first time). In order to provide a uniform finish that looks great, the paint needs to be pushed down into the pores. During your walkaround with your estimator, we’ll point out where we’d recommend the surface be sprayed and backrolled and get your feedback or answer questions you might have.
Sprayers themselves haven’t changed much in the last 10 years but the tips they use have. Tips are now excellent at atomizing the paint (making a very fine mist) and delivering the paint to the painted surface reliably. We use Graco paint sprayers and they are high-tech, very expensive machines specifically designed to do what we’re doing as professional painters. Spraying produces the nicest looking finish, the most uniform coating, and when used by a professional painter gives the customer the highest quality product most efficiently. In the hands of experienced painters, 1 pass with a sprayer over a properly prepared surface will produce a better coating than multiple passes with a brush and roller.
A great paint job will enhance the appeal of your home to your neighbors. If you are thinking of reselling, then a new exterior paint job might make the difference in first impressions to potential buyers.
